John Medows Rodwell rendition of Surah The Overthrowing, The Cessation(at-Takwir)
81:1 WHEN the sun shall be FOLDED UP
81:2 And when the stars shall fall
81:3 And when the mountains shall be set in motion
81:4 And when the she-camels shall be abandoned
81:5 And when the wild beasts shall be gathered together
81:6 And when the seas shall boil
81:7 And when souls shall be paired with their bodies
81:8 And when the female child that had been buried alive shall be aske
81:9 For what crime she was put to death
81:10 And when the leaves of the Book shall be unrolled
81:11 And when the Heaven shall be stripped away
81:12 And when Hell shall be made to blaze
81:13 And when Paradise shall be brought near
81:14 Every soul shall know what it hath produced
81:15 It needs not that I swear by the stars of retrograde motion
81:16 Which move swiftly and hide themselves away
81:17 And by the night when it cometh darkening on
81:18 And by the dawn when it brighteneth
81:19 That this is the word of an illustrious Messenger
81:20 Endued with power, having influence with the Lord of the Throne
81:21 Obeyed there by Angels, faithful to his trust
81:22 And your compatriot is not one possessed by djinn
81:23 For he saw him in the clear horizon
81:24 Nor doth he grapple with heaven's secrets
81:25 Nor doth he teach the doctrine of a cursed Satan
81:26 Whither then are ye going
81:27 Verily, this is no other than a warning to all creatures
81:28 To him among you who willeth to walk in a straight path
81:29 But will it ye shall not, unless as God willeth it, the Lord of the worlds
