81:1  When the sun (with its spacious light) is folded up
81:2  When the stars fall, losing their lustre
81:3  When the mountains vanish (like a mirage)
81:4  When the she-camels, ten months with young, are left untended
81:5  When the wild beasts are herded together (in the human habitations)
81:6  When the oceans boil over with a swell
81:7  When the souls are sorted out, (being joined, like with like)
81:8  When the female (infant), buried alive, is questioned
81:9  For what crime she was killed
81:10  When the scrolls are laid open
81:11  When the world on High is unveiled
81:12  When the Blazing Fire is kindled to fierce heat
81:13  And when the Garden is brought near;
81:14  (Then) shall each soul know what it has put forward
81:15  So verily I call to witness the planets - that recede
81:16  Go straight, or hide
81:17  And the Night as it dissipates
81:18  And the Dawn as it breathes away the darkness;
81:19  Verily this is the word of a most honourable Messenger
81:20  Endued with Power, with rank before the Lord of the Throne
81:21  With authority there, (and) faithful to his trust
81:22  And (O people!) your companion is not one possessed
81:23  And without doubt he saw him in the clear horizon
81:24  Neither doth he withhold grudgingly a knowledge of the Unseen
81:25  Nor is it the word of an evil spirit accursed
81:26  When whither go ye
81:27  Verily this is no less than a Message to (all) the Worlds
81:28  (With profit) to whoever among you wills to go straight
81:29  But ye shall not will except as God wills,- the Cherisher of the Worlds
