Shabbir Ahmed rendition of Surah The Overthrowing, The Cessation(at-Takwir)
81:1 When the Sun is folded up. (Monarchies come to an end).
81:2 And when the stars lose their glow. (Tribal dictatorships fall).
81:3 And when the mountains are moved (The 'great ones' lose their stronghold (20:105), (56:5), (78:20)).
81:4 And when the she-camels, ten months with the young, are abandoned. (A she-camel about to deliver the young has been a precious commodity, but the means of transportation will change).
81:5 And when the wild beasts are herded together. (The nomads and even the cannibals civilize and lead an organized collective life).
81:6 And when the seas bustle with ships.
81:7 And when the people intermingle. (The world becomes a smaller place).
81:8 And when the little girl that was buried alive is made to ask -
81:9 For what crime she was slain. (Women's rights will be restored).
81:10 And when the papers are published widely.
81:11 And when the sky is unveiled. (The Space sciences advance).
81:12 And when the Blazing Fire is ignited. (The guilty are swiftly apprehended).
81:13 And when the Paradise is brought near. (A glimpse of it on the earth).
81:14 (Then) every person will see what he has prepared.
81:15 Oh, but I call to witness the revolving planets.
81:16 The stars which rise and set in their orbits.
81:17 And the Night as it slowly closes upon.
81:18 And the fresh breath of the morning.
81:19 Behold, this indeed is the revealed Word in the dialect of a noble Messenger (69:40).
81:20 Strengthened by Him Who is enthroned in His Almightiness of Supreme Control.
81:21 (The Messenger is) to be obeyed and trusted.
81:22 For, this fellow-man of yours is not a madman.
81:23 And, indeed, he has found Wisdom at its highest horizon. (53:1-7).
81:24 And he withholds not in secret the least bit of the Revelation.
81:25 Nor is it the utterance of a rejected satanic force. (Such as desire).
81:26 Which way, then, are you going?
81:27 This Message is no less than a Reminder and giver of eminence to all mankind.
81:28 Unto everyone of you who wills to walk aright. (1:5).
81:29 But you cannot will it unless you abide by the Laws of the Lord of the Worlds. (4:88).
