Quran Chapter 82

The Opening

The Cleaving

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

[82.1] When the heaven becomes cleft asunder, [82.2] And when the stars become dispersed, [82.3] And when the seas are made to flow forth, [82.4] And when the graves are laid open, [82.5] Every soul shall know what it has sent before and held back. [82.6] O man ! what has beguiled you from your Lord, the Gracious one, [82.7] Who created you, then made you complete, then made you symmetrical? [82.8] Into whatever form He pleased He constituted you. [82.9] Nay! but you give the lie to the judgment day, [82.10] And most surely there are keepers over you

[82.11] Honorable recorders, [82.12] They know what you do. [82.13] Most surely the righteous are in bliss, [82.14] And most surely the wicked are in burning fire, [82.15] They shall enter it on the day of judgment. [82.16] And they shall by no means be absent from it. [82.17] And what will make you realize what the day of judgement is? [82.18] Again, what will make you realize what the day of judgment Is? [82.19] The day on which no soul shall control anything for (another) soul; and the command on that day shall be entirely Allah's.
