Dr. Kamal Omar rendition of Surah The Overthrowing, The Cessation(at-Takwir)
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.
