81:1  WHEN THE sun ceases to shine
81:2  when the stars fal
81:3  and the mountains are blown away
81:4  when camels big with young are left untended
81:5  and the wild beasts are together herded
81:6  when the seas are set ablaz
81:7  and souls are reunited
81:8  when the infant girl,¹ buried alive, is aske
81:9  for what crime she was slain
81:10  when the records of men‘s deeds are laid open
81:11  and heaven is stripped bare
81:12  when Hell turns into a Conflagratio
81:13  and Paradise is brought near
81:14  then each soul shall learn what it has done
81:15  I swear by the turning planets
81:16  and by the stars that rise and set
81:17  by the night, when it darkens
81:18  and the first breath of morning
81:19  this is the Word of a messenger gracious and mighty

81:23  He saw him³ on the clear horizon
81:24  He does not grudge the secrets of the unseen
81:25  nor is this the utterance of an accursed demon
81:26  Whither then are you going
81:27  This is but an Admonition to all mankind
81:28  to those among you that have the will to be upright
81:29  Yet you cannot will, except by the will of God, Lord of the Universe
