N J Dawood (2014) rendition of Surah The Overthrowing, The Cessation(at-Takwir)
81:1 WHEN THE sun ceases to shine
81:2 when the stars fal
81:3 and the mountains are blown away
81:4 when camels big with young are left untended
81:5 and the wild beasts are together herded
81:6 when the seas are set ablaz
81:7 and souls are reunited
81:8 when the infant girl,¹ buried alive, is aske
81:9 for what crime she was slain
81:10 when the records of men‘s deeds are laid open
81:11 and heaven is stripped bare
81:12 when Hell turns into a Conflagratio
81:13 and Paradise is brought near
81:14 then each soul shall learn what it has done
81:15 I swear by the turning planets
81:16 and by the stars that rise and set
81:17 by the night, when it darkens
81:18 and the first breath of morning
81:19 this is the Word of a messenger gracious and mighty
81:20 held in honour by the Lord of the Throne
81:21 obeyed, and faithful to his trust
81:22 No, your countryman² is not possessed
81:23 He saw him³ on the clear horizon
81:24 He does not grudge the secrets of the unseen
81:25 nor is this the utterance of an accursed demon
81:26 Whither then are you going
81:27 This is but an Admonition to all mankind
81:28 to those among you that have the will to be upright
81:29 Yet you cannot will, except by the will of God, Lord of the Universe
