Safi Kaskas rendition of Surah The Overthrowing, The Cessation(at-Takwir)
81:1 When the sun folds
81:2 and the stars are dispersed,
81:3 when the mountains are shifting
81:4 and when full-term she-camels are neglected.
81:5 When the wild beasts are gathered,
81:6 when the seas are set aflame,
81:7 when the souls are paired,
81:8 when the female baby who was buried alive is asked
81:9 for what sin she was killed?
81:10 When the records are made public,
81:11 when the sky is stripped away
81:12 when Hell is set ablaze
81:13 when Paradise is brought into view,
81:14 every soul will then know what it has brought with it.
81:15 I swear by the planets,
81:16 the runners and sweepers,
81:17 and by the night as it recedes
81:18 and the dawn when it breathes,
81:19 this revelation is indeed the word of a honorable Messenger,
81:20 endowed with strength, secure with the Lord of the Throne,
81:21 obeyed and trustworthy.
81:22 This fellow of yours is not mad,
81:23 he has already seen him [Gabriel] in the clear horizon.
81:24 He does not withhold what is revealed to him from beyond.
81:25 And it (the Qur'an) is not the word of a devil, expelled from Heaven.
81:26 So where, then, will you go?
81:27 It is only a reminder to all humankind
81:28 for whoever wills among you to go straight.
81:29 But you cannot will, unless God, the Lord of the worlds, so wills.
