Did you notice?
81:1  When the sun is folded up
81:2  and when the stars lose their light
81:3  and when the mountains are moved
81:4  when ten-month pregnant camels are left untended
81:5  and when all beasts are gathered together
81:6  and when the seas are set on fire
81:7  when the souls are divided into different classes
81:8  and when the female infant buried alive is aske
81:9  for what sin she was killed
81:10  when the records of mens deeds are laid open
81:11  when the sky is unveiled
81:12  and when Hell is set ablaze
81:13  when Paradise is brought close
81:14  [then] each soul shall know what it has put forward
81:15  I swear by the receding stars
81:16  the planets that run their course and set
81:17  and the night that falls
81:18  and the first breath of morning
81:19  Truly, this is the word brought by a noble messenger
81:20  endowed with power and held in honour by the Lord of the Thron
81:21  who is obeyed there and is worthy of trust
81:22  Your companion is not one possessed
81:23  he truly beheld him [the angel] on the clear horizon
81:24  He is not avid of the Unseen
81:25  Nor is this the word of an outcast devil
81:26  So where are you going
81:27  This is merely a reminder to all mankind
81:28  to every one of you who wishes to tread the straight path
81:29  But you cannot will it unless God, the Lord of the Universe, so wills it [to show you that way]
