Musharraf Hussain rendition of Surah The Overthrowing, The Cessation(at-Takwir)
81:1 When the sun is shrouded,
81:2 when the stars are dimmed,
81:3 when the mountains are moved,
81:4 when pregnant camels are left untended,
81:5 when wild beasts are gathered,
81:6 when the seas boil,
81:7 when the souls are paired,
81:8 when the baby girl buried alive is asked
81:9 for which crime she was murdered,
81:10 when the scrolls of deeds are unrolled,
81:11 and when a layer of the sky is peeled,
81:12 when Hell is set ablaze,
81:13 when Paradise is brought near –
81:14 then everyone will know what they achieved or failed to achieve in life.
81:15 So, I swear by the shining stars,
81:16 by the dying stars,
81:17 by the fall of the night,
81:18 by the morning breeze.
81:19 Certainly, the Quran is the recitation of a noble Angel,
81:20 who possesses immense power, and has a firmly-established rank with the Possessor of the Divine Throne,
81:21 who is obeyed by other angels and is trustworthy.
81:22 Your companion isn’t mad;
81:23 he saw him clearly on the horizon.
81:24 He doesn’t hide the news of the Unseen.
81:25 It isn’t the word of a rejected devil.
81:26 So where are you going?
81:27 It’s a reminder for all people,
81:28 especially for the one who longs to be guided on the straight path.
81:29 But how can you long for it unless Allah, the Lord of the worlds, so wills, to show you that way
