Did you notice?
81:1  WHEN THE SUN is folded up
81:2  The stars turn dim and scatter
81:3  The mountains made to move
81:4  The ten-month pregnant female camels are abandoned
81:5  The wild beasts stampede on the run
81:6  When the oceans surge and swell
81:7  When souls are reunited (with the bodies
81:8  And the little girl buried alive is aske
81:9  For what crime she was put to death
81:10  When the ledgers are laid open
81:11  The curtain drawn back from the skies
81:12  When Hell is set ablaze
81:13  And Paradise brought near
81:14  (Then) every soul will know what it had prepared (for itself)
81:15  So, I call the receding stars to witness
81:16  The planets withdrawing into themselves
81:17  The closing night
81:18  The rising dawn
81:19  That this is indeed the word of an honoured Messenger
81:20  Full of power, well-established (in position) with the Lord and Master of the Throne
81:21  Obeyed and worthy there of trust
81:22  Your companion is not mad
81:23  He had surely seen Him on the clear horizon
81:24  He is not chary of making public what is unknown
81:25  This is not the utterance of an accursed devil
81:26  So whither do you stray
81:27  This is a reminder for all the peoples of the world
81:28  For those of you who desire to walk the path that is straight
81:29  Though you cannot desire except as God will, the Lord of all the worlds
