Al-muntakhab fi tafsir al-Qur'an al-Karim rendition of Surah The Overthrowing, The Cessation(at-Takwir)
81:1 When once the sun is contracted and loses light and becomes dim,
81:2 The stars emit no light, lose aspect, contribute to cosmic catastrophes and they are no longer in trim,
81:3 The mountains are put in motion and vanish,
81:4 The precious pregnant she - camels are forsaken,
81:5 The wild beasts are thronged,
81:6 The seas boil and become inundated,
81:7 The like are consorted with the like, joined in companionship and associated (or the souls embodied)
81:8 The entombed - alive female infant is asked,
81:9 For what guilt was she made to suffer infanticide?
81:10 And when the records are laid open and are open wide,
81:11 And when the heaven is erased,
81:12 And when Hell is blazed,
81:13 And when Paradise is brought close at hand,
81:14 Then, every soul becomes fully cognizant of what she brought along of deeds imprinted with wisdom and piety or works imprinted with iniquity and impiety.
81:15 I swear by the heavenly bodies that recede,
81:16 The planets which in a retrograde motion do proceed,
81:17 And by the night when she feels her way and then softly moves away,
81:18 And by the morn when it draws the breath of relief and heyday:
81:19 That it -the Quran- is the word of Allah conveyed by a distinguished Messenger Jibril (Gabriel) who is regarded with honour.
81:20 He is quite powerful and he is endued from the Throne of grace with high esteem;
81:21 And he is obeyed in the realm and to his trust he is faithfully supreme.
81:22 Nor is your companion the -Prophet Muhammad- possessed by an evil spirit,
81:23 For he certainly saw him -the angel Jibril- at the clear horizon.
81:24 Nor should he be accused of withholding any heavenly or divine knowledge of the unseen,
81:25 Nor is it -the Quran- the word of an accursed spirit.
81:26 How could you think this way and where can you turn?
81:27 This Quran is but a universal message and an admonition of great concern,
81:28 For him who, among you, wishes to follow the path of rectitude which is the path in the main.
81:29 But even then you cannot exercise your will unless it be Allah's will; He is the Creator of the worlds.
