Sher Ali rendition of Surah The Overthrowing, The Cessation(at-Takwir)
81:1 When the sun is folded up,
81:2 And when the stars are obscured,
81:3 And when the mountains are made to move,
81:4 And when the she-camels, ten-month pregnant are abandoned,
81:5 And when the wild beasts are gathered together,
81:6 And when the rivers are drained away,
81:7 And when various people are brought together,
81:8 And when the female-infant buried alive is questioned about -
81:9 `For what crime was she killed?'
81:10 And when books are spread abroad,
81:11 And when the heaven is laid bare,
81:12 And when Hell-Fire is set ablaze,
81:13 And when Paradise is brought nigh,
81:14 Then every soul will know what it has produced.
81:15 Nay ! I call to witness those that recede while advancing,
81:16 Rush ahead and then hide.
81:17 And I call to witness the night as it draws to a close,
81:18 And the dawn as it begins to breathe,
81:19 That this is, surely, the word revealed to a noble Messenger,
81:20 Possessor of strength, established in the presence of the Lord of the Throne,
81:21 Entitled to obedience and faithful to his trust.
81:22 And your companion is not mad.
81:23 And he, assuredly, saw him on the clear horizon.
81:24 And he is not niggardly with respect to the unseen.
81:25 Nor is this the word of Satan, the rejected.
81:26 Wither, then, are you going?
81:27 It is nothing but a Reminder unto all the worlds,
81:28 Unto such among you as desire to go straight.
81:29 And you desire not a thing except that ALLAH, the Lord of the worlds, desire it.
