The Clear Quran, Dr. Mustafa Khattab rendition of Surah The Overthrowing, The Cessation(at-Takwir)
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.
