81:1  When the sun is put out,
81:2  and when the stars fall down,
81:3  and when the mountains are blown away,
81:4  and when pregnant camels are left untended,
81:5  and when wild beasts are gathered together,
81:6  and when the seas are set on fire,
81:7  and when the souls ˹and their bodies˺ are paired ˹once more˺,
81:8  and when baby girls, buried alive, are asked
81:9  for what crime they were put to death,
81:10  and when the records ˹of deeds˺ are laid open,
81:11  and when the sky is stripped away,
81:12  and when the Hellfire is fiercely flared up,
81:13  and when Paradise is brought near—
81:14  ˹on that Day˺ each soul will know what ˹deeds˺ it has brought along.
81:15  I do swear by the receding stars
81:16  which travel and hide,
81:17  and the night as it falls
81:18  and the day as it breaks!
81:19  Indeed, this ˹Quran˺ is the Word of ˹Allah delivered by Gabriel,˺ a noble messenger-angel,
81:20  full of power, held in honour by the Lord of the Throne,
81:21  obeyed there ˹in heaven˺, and trustworthy.
81:22  And your fellow man is not insane.
81:23  And he did see that ˹angel˺ on the clear horizon,
81:24  and he does not withhold ˹what is revealed to him of˺ the unseen.
81:25  And this ˹Quran˺ is not the word of an outcast devil.
81:26  So what ˹other˺ path would you take?
81:27  Surely this ˹Quran˺ is only a reminder to the whole world—
81:28  to whoever of you wills to take the Straight Way.
81:29  But you cannot will ˹to do so˺, except by the Will of Allah, the Lord of all worlds.
