Name

It is derived from the word infatarat in the first verse. Infitar isan infinitive which means to burst or split asunder, thereby implyingthat it is the Surah in which the splitting asunder of the sky has beenmentioned.

Period of Revelation

This Surah and the Surah At-Takwir closely resemble each other in theirsubject matter. This shows that both were sent down in about the sameperiod.

Theme and Subject Matter

Its theme is the Hereafter. According to a tradition related in MusnadAhmad, Tirmidhi, Ibn al-Mundhir, Tabarani, Hakim and Ibn Marduyah, onthe authority of Hadrat Abdullah bin Umar, the Holy Messenger (uponwhom be peace) said: "The one who wants that he should see theResurrection Day as one would see it with one's eyes, should read SurahAt-Takwir, Surah Al-Infitar and Surah Al-Inshiqaq".

In this Surah first the Resurrection Day has been describedand it is said that when it occurs, every person will see whatever hehas done in the world. After this, man has been asked to ponder thequestion: "O man, what has deluded you into thinking that the God, Whobrought you into being and by Whose favor and bounty you possess thefinest body, limbs and features among all creatures, is only bountifuland not just? His being bountiful and generous does not mean that youshould become fearless of His justice."Then, man has been warned, soas to say: "Do not remain involved in any misunderstanding. Yourcomplete record is being prepared. There are trustworthy writers whoare writing down whatever you do." In conclusion, it has beenforcefully stated that the Day of Resurrection will surely take placewhen the righteous shall enjoy every kind of bliss in Paradise and thewicked shall be punished in Hell. On that day no one shall availanyone anything. All powers of judgment shall be with Allah.
