Arthur John Arberry rendition of Surah The Overthrowing, The Cessation(at-Takwir)
81:1 When the sun shall be darkened
81:2 when the stars shall be thrown down
81:3 when the mountains shall be set moving
81:4 when the pregnant camels shall be neglected
81:5 when the savage beasts shall be mustered
81:6 when the seas shall be set boiling
81:7 when the souls shall be coupled
81:8 when the buried infant shall be aske
81:9 for what sin she was slain
81:10 when the scrolls shall be unrolled
81:11 when heaven shall be stripped off
81:12 when Hell shall be set blazing
81:13 when Paradise shall be brought nigh
81:14 then shall a soul know what it has produced
81:15 No! I swear by the slinkers
81:16 the runners, the sinkers
81:17 by the night swarming
81:18 by the dawn sighing
81:19 truly this is the word of a noble Messenge
81:20 having power, with the Lord of the Throne secure
81:21 obeyed, moreover trusty
81:22 Your companion is not possessed
81:23 he truly saw him on the clear horizon
81:24 he is not niggardly of the Unseen
81:25 And it is not the word of an accursed Satan
81:26 where then are you going
81:27 It is naught but a Reminder unto all beings
81:28 for whosoever of you who would go straight
81:29 but will you shall not, unless God wills, the Lord of all Being
