In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

  1. When the Sky is cleft asunder;
  2. When the Stars are scattered;
  3. When the Oceans are suffered to burst forth;
  4. And when the Graves are turned upside down;-
  5. (Then) shall each soul know what it hath sent forward and (what it hath) kept back.
  6. O man! What has seduced thee from thy Lord Most Beneficent?-
  7. Him Who created thee. Fashioned thee in due proportion, and gave thee a just bias;
  8. In whatever Form He wills, does He put thee together.
  9. Nay! But ye do reject Right and Judgment!
  10. But verily over you (are appointed angels) to protect you,-
  11. Kind and honourable,- Writing down (your deeds):
  12. They know (and understand) all that ye do.
  13. As for the Righteous, they will be in bliss;
  14. And the Wicked – they will be in the Fire,
  15. Which they will enter on the Day of Judgment,
  16. And they will not be able to keep away therefrom.
  17. And what will explain to thee what the Day of Judgment is?
  18. Again, what will explain to thee what the Day of Judgment is?
  19. (It will be) the Day when no soul shall have power (to do) aught for another: For the command, that Day, will be (wholly) with Allah.

Surah Al-Infitaar Tafseer in English

It is derived from the word infatarat in the first verse. Infitar is an infinitive which means to cleave or split asunder, thereby implying that it is the Surah in which the splitting asunder of the sky has been mentioned.

Period of Revelation
This Surah and the Surah At-Takwir closely resemble each other in their subject matter. This shows that both were sent down in about the same period.

Theme and Subject Matter
Its theme is the Hereafter. According to a tradition related in Musnad Ahmad, Tirmidhi, Ibn al-Mundhir, Tabarani, Hakim and Ibn Marduyah, on the authority of Hadrat Abdullah bin Umar, the Holy Messenger (upon whom be peace) said: “The one who wants that he should see the Resurrection Day as one would see it with one’s eyes, should read Surah At-Takwir, Surah Al-Infitar and Surah Al-Inshiqaq.”

In this Surah first the Resurrection Day has been described and it is said that when it occurs, every person will see whatever he has done in the world. After this, man has been asked to ponder the question: “O man, what has deluded you into thinking that the God, Who brought you into being and by Whose favor and bounty you possess the finest body, limbs and features among all creatures, is only bountiful and not just? His being bountiful and generous does not mean that you should become fearless of His justice.”Then, man has been warned, so as to say: “Do not remain involved in any misunderstanding. Your complete record is being prepared. There are trustworthy writers who are writing down whatever you do.” In conclusion, it has been forcefully stated that the Day of Resurrection will surely take place when the righteous shall enjoy every kind of bliss in Paradise and the wicked shall be punished in Hell. On that day no one shall avail anyone anything. All powers of judgment shall be with Allah.
