Aisha Bewley rendition of Surah The Overthrowing, The Cessation(at-Takwir)
81:1 When the sun is compacted in blackness,
81:2 when the stars fall in rapid succession,
81:3 when the mountains are set in motion,
81:4 when the camels in foal are neglected,
81:5 when the wild beasts are all herded together,
81:6 when the oceans surge into each other,
81:7 when the selves are arranged into classes,
81:8 when the baby girl buried alive is asked
81:9 for what crime she was killed,
81:10 when the Pages are opened up,
81:11 when the Heaven is peeled away,
81:12 when the Fire is set ablaze,
81:13 when the Garden is brought up close:
81:14 then each self will know what it has done.
81:15 No! I swear by the planets with their retrograde motion,
81:16 swiftly moving, self-concealing,
81:17 and by the night when it draws in,
81:18 and by the dawn when it exhales,
81:19 truly it is the speech of a noble Messenger,
81:20 possessing great strength, securely placed with the Lord of the Throne,
81:21 obeyed there, trustworthy.
81:22 Your companion is not mad.
81:23 He saw him on the clear horizon.
81:24 Nor is he miserly with the Unseen.
81:25 Nor is it the word of an accursed Shaytan.
81:26 So where, then, are you going?
81:27 It is nothing but a Reminder to all the worlds,
81:28 to whoever among you wishes to go straight.
81:29 But you will not will unless Allah wills, the Lord of all the Worlds.
