Muhammad Mahmoud Ghali rendition of Surah The Overthrowing, The Cessation(at-Takwir)
81:1 When the sun will be rolled, (i.e., folded; compressed).
81:2 And when the stars will be turbid,
81:3 And when the mountains will be made to travel,
81:4 And when the (she-camels) ten-months with young are untended,
81:5 And when the savage beasts will be mustered,
81:6 And when the seas will be seething,
81:7 And when the (inner) selves will be paired, (i.e., joined to their bodies)
81:8 And when the female infant buried alive will be asked.
81:9 For whichever guilty deed she was killed,
81:10 And when the Scrolls will be unrolled,
81:11 And when the heaven will be scraped off,
81:12 And when the Hell-Fire will be set blazing,
81:13 And when the Garden will be drawn within reach-
81:14 (Then) a self will know whatever it has presented.
81:15 Then no! swear by the constant sinkers,
81:16 The running "stars", the constant sinkers,
81:17 And by the night when it darkens, (Or: swarms)
81:18 And by the morning when it breathes,
81:19 Surely it is indeed the Saying of an honorable Messenger (The Angel Jibril "Gabriel")
81:20 Owning power, established in the Providence of The Owner of the Throne,
81:21 Obeyed there, (and) devoted.
81:22 And in no ay is your companion (The Prophet) a madman.
81:23 And indeed he (The Prophet) already saw him (The Angle Jibril "Gabriel") on the evident horizon,
81:24 And in no way is he reluctant with the Unseen (i.e., the Prophet saw Jibril).
81:25 And in no way is it the saying of an outcast Shaytan (Ever-vicious "one", i.e., devil)
81:26 Where then are you (The pronoun is plural) going?
81:27 Decidedly it is nothing except a Remembrance to the worlds
81:28 For whomever of you who decides to go straight;
81:29 And in no way can you decide except "when" Allah "so" decides, The Lord of the worlds.
