Surah al-inshiqaq The Sundering Tafsir 
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
When the sky has split
Allah takes an oath by the sky and its splitting on the Day of Judgement.
And has responded to its Lord and was obligated [to do so]
It will split in response to Allah’s command and it must do so as it has no other choice.
And when the earth has been extended
Allah takes an oath by the earth when it will spread out and flatten with all its mountains removed, on the Day of Judgement.
And has cast out that within it and relinquished
And the earth on that Day will expel all of the dead buried within it.
And has responded to its Lord and was obligated [to do so]
It will do so in response to Allah’s command and it must do so as it has no other choice.
O mankind, indeed you are labouring toward your Lord with exertion and will meet it
Each person is moving closer to the meeting with Allah along with their deeds, good and bad. They will see the results of those deeds on the Day of Judgement.
Then as for he who is given his record in his right hand
Those who are given their record of deeds in their right hand are the believers.
He will be judged with an easy account
They will have an easy accounting before Allah.
And return to his people in happiness
And they will be united with their families in Paradise.
But as for he who is given his record behind his back
Those who are given their record of deeds behind their backs are the disbelievers.
He will cry out for destruction
They will wish for their own destruction due to the coming punishment.
And burn in a Blaze
Instead, they will burn in the blazing Fire for eternity.
Indeed, he had been among his people in happiness
In the life of this world, these people were in a state of denial, enjoying themselves.
Indeed, he had thought he would never return
They didn’t believe in the Judgement or that they would answer to Allah.
But yes! Indeed, his Lord was ever of him, Seeing
But they will definitely return. And Allah will hold them to account as He saw all that they did in this life.
So I swear by the twilight glow
Allah takes an oath by the redness of the twilight at sunset.
And the night and when it envelops
And an oath by the night and all the animals and creatures which come out in its darkness.
And the moon when it becomes full
And an oath by the moon when it is full and its light complete.
You will surely experience state after state
People go from one stage to another, from a drop of fluid to a clot, to life to death and resurrection.
So what is with them they do not believe
What stops people from believing after all these signs?
And when the Qur’an is recited to them, they do not prostrate
And why don’t they read the Qur’an, believe in it and prostrate when it commands them to do so?
But those who have disbelieved deny
Rather, this is the way of those who disbelieve and reject.
And Allah is most knowing of what they keep within themselves
Allah knows what they truly think and believe, and that they deny the Qur’an despite knowing its truthfulness deep down.
So give them tidings of a painful punishment
For these acts, they will have the painful punishment of the Hellfire.
Except for those who believe and do righteous deeds. For them is a reward uninterrupted
As for those who believe and do good deeds, they will have the reward of Paradise which will never end or be deficient.
