81:1  When the sun is rolled up,
81:2  and when the stars are dimmed,
81:3  and when the mountains are set in motion,
81:4  and when pregnant camels are abandoned,
81:5  and when the beasts are herded,
81:6  and when the oceans are set aflame,
81:7  and when the souls are paired,
81:8  and when the baby girl that was buried alive is asked
81:9  for what misdeed she was killed,
81:10  and when the scrolls are made public,
81:11  and when the sky is peeled away,
81:12  and when purgatory is set fully ablaze,
81:13  and when the Garden (of Paradise) is brought near—
81:14  each soul will know what it has brought forth.
81:15  So, no! I swear by those (stars) receding,
81:16  running, sweeping.

81:18  By the morn as it breathes—

81:20  endowed with power, eminent with the Lord of the Throne,
81:21  obeyed there and trustworthy.
81:22  Thus yourpl fellow is not a madman,
81:23  for he most surely saw him on the evident horizon,
81:24  and he does not stingily withhold (knowledge of) the hidden realm,
81:25  and it is not the word of an outcast Satan.
81:26  So where are youpl going?
81:27  It is but a Reminder to (all creatures of) all realms,
81:28  to whomever of you who wills to be upright.
81:29  But youpl cannot will unless Allah, the Lord of all realms, wills.
