81:1  When the sun is compacted in blackness,
81:2  when the stars fall in rapid succession,
81:3  when the mountains are set in motion,
81:4  when the camels in foal are neglected,
81:5  when the wild beasts are all herded together,
81:6  when the oceans surge into each other,
81:7  when the selves are arranged into classes,
81:8  when the baby girl buried alive is asked
81:9  for what crime she was killed,
81:10  when the Pages are opened up,
81:11  when the Heaven is peeled away,
81:12  when the Fire is set ablaze,
81:13  when the Garden is brought up close:
81:14  then each self will know what it has done.
81:15  No! I swear by the planets with their retrograde motion,
81:16  swiftly moving, self-concealing,
81:17  and by the night when it draws in,
81:18  and by the dawn when it exhales,
81:19  truly it is the speech of a noble Messenger,
81:20  possessing great strength, securely placed with the Lord of the Throne,
81:21  obeyed there, trustworthy.
81:22  Your companion is not mad.
81:23  He saw him on the clear horizon.
81:24  Nor is he miserly with the Unseen.
81:25  Nor is it the word of an accursed Shaytan.
81:26  So where, then, are you going?
81:27  It is nothing but a Reminder to all the worlds,
81:28  to whoever among you wishes to go straight.
81:29  But you will not will unless Allah wills, the Lord of all the Worlds.
