Surah al infitar Al-Infitar (The Cleaving) Tafsir
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
When the sky breaks apart
On the Day of Judgement, the sky will rip open.
And when the stars fall, scattering
The stars will fall from the sky, scattering all over.
And when the seas are erupted
The seas and ocean will erupt into fire and their waters dry out.
And when the graves are scattered
The graves will open up and expel all those that lie within them.
A soul will know what it has put forth and kept back
On that Day, each person will know the actions they performed and which obligations and opportunities for good deeds they missed.
O mankind, what has deceived you concerning your Lord, the Generous
O the one who denies resurrection, what has made you think bad of your Lord who is Generous and Giving, and deserving of gratitude and obedience?
Who created you, proportioned you, and balanced you?
Is He not the One who created you from nothing, shaped you and made you in a way which would allow you to take full advantage of your life?
In whatever form He willed has He assembled you
He created you in the shape and form He willed.
No! but you deny the Recompense
It is not befitting then that you worship other than Allah. Rather, you think you will never be resurrected and held to account.
And indeed, over you are keepers
There are angels who have been appointed to watch over you.
Noble and recording
They are noble in the sight of Allah, recording.
They know whatever you do
Each and everything you do is written, they miss nothing.
Indeed, the righteous will be in pleasure
The good people who fulfil the rights of Allah and the rights of others will have the pleasures of Paradise.
And indeed, the wicked will be in Hellfire
The evil people who fall short in the rights of Allah and the rights of others will be in the Fire.
They will burn therein on the Day of Recompense
This will be their final destination on the Day of Judgement, and they will burn therein.
And never therefrom will they be absent
They will never leave the Fire, nor die or find any rest.
And what can make you know what is the Day of Recompense?
So what will tell you of the true nature of that Day?
Then, what can make you know what is the Day of Recompense?
Again, what can make you truly know that Day and all it will contain?
It is the Day when a soul will not possess for another soul a thing; and the command, that Day, is with Allah
It s the Day when no one can help or benefit another, and the affair is all for Allah, alone. No one will be able to stop Allah’s commands.
