AL-INFIṬĀR

The Rending

الإنفطار

Meccan (surah 82 • 19 ayahs)

»The surah that opens with a riveting description of THE RENDING open of the sky at the onset of the Day of Resurrection and assets that every human is being watched by angels and shall stand accountable before God in the Hereafter. It takes its name from “the renting” or “torn apart” (infiṭār) of the sky mentioned in verse 1. The surah deals with man’s ingratitude and his failure to concede that the Day of Judgement will come.«

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH,

THE ALL-BENEFICENT, THE ALL-MERCIFUL.
