81:1  THEN THE SUN is shrouded in darkness
81:2  and when the stars lose their light
81:3  and when the mountains are made to vanish
81:4  and when she-camels big with young, about to give birth, are left untended
81:5  and when all beasts are gathered together
81:6  and when the seas boil over
81:7  and when all human beings are coupled [with their deeds]
81:8  and when the girl-child that was buried alive is made to as
81:9  for what crime she had been slain
81:10  and when the scrolls [of men's deeds] are unfolded
81:11  and when heaven is laid bare
81:12  and when the blazing fire [of hell] is kindled bright
81:13  and when paradise is brought into view
81:14  [on that Day] every human being will come to know what he has prepared [for himself]
81:15  BUT NAY! I call to witness the revolving stars
81:16  the planets that run their course and set
81:17  and the night as it darkly falls
81:18  and the morn as it softly breathes
81:19  behold, this [divine writ] is indeed the [inspired] word of a noble apostle
81:20  with strength endowed, secure with Him who in almightiness is enthrone
81:21  [the word] of one to be heeded, and worthy of trust
81:22  For, this fellow-man of yours is not a madman
81:23  he truly beheld [the angel - beheld] him on the clear horizon
81:24  and he is not one to begrudge others the knowledge [of whatever has been revealed to him] out of that which is beyond the reach of human Perception
81:25  Nor is this [message] the word of any satanic force accursed
81:26  Whither, then, will you go
81:27  This [message] is no less than a reminder to all mankind –
81:28  to everyone of you who wills to walk a straight way
81:29  But you cannot will it unless God, the Sustainer of all the worlds, wills [to show you that way]
