081 : The Overthrowing

81:1
When the sun (with its spacious light) is folded up;

81:2
When the stars fall, losing their lustre;

81:3
When the mountains vanish (like a mirage);

81:4
When the she-camels, ten months with young, are left untended;

81:5
When the wild beasts are herded together (in the human habitations);

81:6
When the oceans boil over with a swell;

81:7
When the souls are sorted out, (being joined, like with like);

81:8
When the female (infant), buried alive, is questioned -

81:9
For what crime she was killed;

81:10
When the scrolls are laid open;

81:11
When the world on High is unveiled;

81:12
When the Blazing Fire is kindled to fierce heat;

81:13
And when the Garden is brought near;-

81:14
(Then) shall each soul know what it has put forward.

81:15
So verily I call to witness the planets - that recede,

81:16
Go straight, or hide;

81:17
And the Night as it dissipates;

81:18
And the Dawn as it breathes away the darkness;-

81:19
Verily this is the word of a most honourable Messenger,

81:20
Endued with Power, with rank before the Lord of the Throne,

81:21
With authority there, (and) faithful to his trust.

81:22
And (O people!) your companion is not one possessed;

81:23
And without doubt he saw him in the clear horizon.

81:24
Neither doth he withhold grudgingly a knowledge of the Unseen.

81:25
Nor is it the word of an evil spirit accursed.

81:26
When whither go ye?

81:27
Verily this is no less than a Message to (all) the Worlds:

81:28
(With profit) to whoever among you wills to go straight:

81:29
But ye shall not will except as Allah wills,- the Cherisher of the Worlds.
