Did you notice?
81:1  When the sun is Kuwwirat (wrapped up as a round body)
81:2  and when the stars lost the light and lustre
81:3  and when the mountains are made to move
81:4  and when the she camels, ten-months’ pregnant are abandoned
81:5  and when the beasts are gathered together (in fear)
81:6  and when the seas are made to flow forth (one into the other)
81:7  and when the Nufus (this is a plural of Nafs) are united (i.e., the body and soul are again united)
81:8  and when the female (infant) buried alive is asked —
81:9  for what sin she has been killed
81:10  And when the files (or the records of deeds) are laid open
81:11  and when the heaven is stripped off
81:12  and when the Hell-Fire is put to full blaze
81:13  and when the Paradise is brought closeby
81:14  (then and there) a Nafs has come to know what has she brought (as her concepts, beliefs and deeds)
81:15  Then, nay! I bring to witness (the heavenly bodies) that disappear and hide themselves (during the day)
81:16  who are in swift motion, (yet are those) who remain hidden from view
81:17  and the night when it departed
81:18  and the day when it started (its) breath
81:19  (that) undoubtedly it is indeed a Statement coming via an honoured messenger (to His Abd)
81:20  (This emissary is) possessor of power and authority. (This arch-Angel, Jibriel is) stationed close to the Owner of the Throne (i.e., Allah)
81:21  (He is one) who is obeyed and paid allegiance; moreover he is trustworthy (spirit)
81:22  And your companion (who is propagating the Message of God to you is) not a fanatic
81:23  And surely, indeed he has seen him (i.e., the arch-angel) on the clear eastern horizon
81:24  And he is not who keeps something hidden regarding Al-ghaib (the unseen)
81:25  And it is not a statement from Satan, the rejected and expelled
81:26  Then where do you go? (Do you reject Al-Kitab and seek illegitimate source for Religious knowledge)
81:27  This is not but Zikrun-lil-Alamin (‘A Message unto the worlds’)
81:28  for whomsoever desired amongst you that he may set (himself) in permanence
81:29  And you people desire not except that Allah (so) desires; (He is) Nourisher-Sustainer to the worlds
