Did you notice?
81:1  When the sun will cease to shine (overthrown);
81:2  and when the stars will fall;
81:3  and when the mountains will be moved away;
81:4  and when the pregnant she-camels will be neglected (unattended);
81:5  and when the wild beasts will be gathered together;
81:6  and when the seas will overflow (or set on fire);
81:7  and when the souls will be joined (with their bodies);
81:8  and when the infant girl buried alive (as the pagan Arabs used to do) will be questioned
81:9  for what sin she was killed;
81:10  and when the written pages (record of deeds) will be laid open;
81:11  and when the heaven will be stripped off (taken away from its place);
81:12  and when hellfire will be kindled to blaze (fierce heat);
81:13  and when Paradise will be brought near;
81:14  then every person will know what he has brought (of good and evil).
81:15  So surely, I swear by the planets that recede;
81:16  and that move swiftly and hide themselves;
81:17  and by the night as it departs;
81:18  and by the dawn as it brightens;
81:19  surely, this is the Word (this Qur’an) of a honorable Messenger (Gabriel from Allah to Muhammad),
81:20  possessor of mighty power, established (high rank) with the Owner of the Throne (Allah),
81:21  obeyed (by the angels in the heaven), and trustworthy.
81:22  (O people of Makkah) your companion (Muhammad) is not a mad man,
81:23  and indeed he (Muhammad) saw him (Gabriel) in the clear horizon
81:24  and he (Muhammad) does not withhold knowledge on the unseen.
81:25  And this (Qur’an) is not the word of the outcast Satan.
81:26  Then where are you going?
81:27  This (the Qur’an) is but a reminder to the people of the worlds,
81:28  to whoever among you who wishes to follow the Right Way.
81:29  Yet, you will not (avail your wishes) unless that Allah wills, the Lord of the worlds.
