Maududi rendition of Surah The Overthrowing, The Cessation(at-Takwir)
81:1 When the sun shall be folded up,
81:2 when the stars shall scatter away,
81:3 when the mountains shall be set in motion,
81:4 when the ten-months pregnant camels shall be abandoned,
81:5 when the savage beasts shall be brought together,
81:6 when the seas shall be set boiling,
81:7 when the souls shall be rejoined (with their bodies),
81:8 and when the girl-child buried alive shall be asked:
81:9 for what offence was she killed?
81:10 and when the scrolls of (men´s) deeds shall be unfolded,
81:11 and when Heaven is laid bare;
81:12 and Hell is stoked,
81:13 and Paradise brought nigh:
81:14 then shall each person know what he has brought along.
81:15 No indeed; I swear by the alternating stars
81:16 that hide,
81:17 and by the night as it recedes,
81:18 and the morn as it breathes.
81:19 Verily this is the word of a noble message-bearer;
81:20 one mighty and held in honour with the Lord of the Throne;
81:21 there he is obeyed and held trustworthy.
81:22 (O people of Makkah), your companion is not mad;
81:23 he indeed saw the message-bearer on the clear horizon;
81:24 nor does he grudge (conveying this knowledge about) the Unseen;
81:25 nor is it a word of an accursed Satan.
81:26 Where to are you then heading?
81:27 It is nothing but Good Counsel for everyone in the world,
81:28 for everyone of you who wishes to follow the Straight Way;
81:29 but your wishing will not avail unless Allah, the Lord of the Universe, so wishes.
