The Study Quran rendition of Surah The Overthrowing, The Cessation(at-Takwir)
81:1 When the sun is enfolded,
81:2 and when the stars fade away;
81:3 when the mountains are set in motion,
81:4 and when pregnant camels are abandoned;
81:5 when the wild beasts are gathered,
81:6 and when the seas are made to swell over;
81:7 when the souls are coupled,
81:8 and when the female infant buried alive is asked
81:9 for what sin she was slain;
81:10 when the pages are spread,
81:11 and when Heaven is laid bare;
81:12 when Hellfire is kindled,
81:13 and when the Garden is brought nigh,
81:14 each soul shall know what it has made ready.
81:15 So I swear by those receding,
81:16 those that move and set,
81:17 by the night as it approaches,
81:18 and by the morning as it breathes!
81:19 Truly it is the speech of a noble messenger,
81:20 possessed of strength, before the Possessor of the Throne, of high rank,
81:21 obeyed, trustworthy withal.
81:22 Your companion is not possessed.
81:23 He surely saw him upon the clear horizon.
81:24 And he does not withhold grudgingly the Unseen.
81:25 Nor is it the speech of a satan outcast.
81:26 So where are you going?
81:27 It is naught but a reminder for the worlds,
81:28 for those of you who will to go straight.
81:29 And you do not will but that God, Lord of the worlds, wills.
