The Day of Recompense – Surah Al-Infitar (The Cleaving) – Dr. Khalid Fikri

Commentary on Surah Al-Infitar (The Cleaving) Qur’an (1-19), a surah explaining the horrors of the day of recompense a day of total regret for the many souls that were careless of Allah in the life of this world and a day of happiness for those pious and righteous souls.

1. When the heaven is cleft asunder.
2. And when the stars have fallen and scattered;
3. And when the seas are burst forth (got dried up);
4. And when the graves are turned upside down (and they bring out their contents)
5. (Then) a person will know what he has sent forward and (what he has) left behind (of good or bad deeds).
6. O man! What has made you careless concerning your Lord, the Most Generous?
7. Who created you, fashioned you perfectly, and gave you due proportion;
8. In whatever form He willed, He put you together.
9. Nay! But you deny the Recompense (reward for good deeds and punishment for evil deeds).
10. But verily, over you (are appointed angels in charge of mankind) to watch you,
11. Kirman (honourable) Ktibn writing down (your deeds),
12. They know all that you do.
13. Verily, the Abrr (pious and righteous) will be in delight (Paradise);
14. And verily, the Fujjr (the wicked, disbelievers, sinners and evil-doers) will be in the blazing Fire (Hell),
15. In which they will enter, and taste its burning flame on the Day of Recompense,
16. And they (Al-Fujjr) will not be absent therefrom (i.e. will not go out from the Hell).
17. And what will make you know what the Day of Recompense is? (Al-Infitar 82:17)
18. Again, what will make you know what the Day of Recompense is?
19. (It will be) the Day when no person shall have power (to do) anything for another, and the Decision, that Day, will be (wholly) with Allh.
