At-Talkwir - The Overthrowing, Extinguished! Wrapping Things Up - Meccan

  1. In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

  2. 81:1 When the sun (with its spacious light) is folded up;

  3. 81:2 When the stars fall, losing their lustre;

  4. 81:3 When the mountains vanish (like a mirage);

  5. 81:4 When the she-camels, ten months with young, are left untended;

  6. 81:5 When the wild beasts are herded together (in the human habitations);

  7. 81:6 When the oceans boil over with a swell;

  8. 81:7 When the souls are sorted out, (being joined, like with like);

  9. 81:8 When the female (infant), buried alive, is questioned -

  10. 81:9 For what crime she was killed;

  11. 81:10 When the scrolls are laid open;

  12. 81:11 When the world on High is unveiled;

  13. 81:12 When the Blazing Fire is kindled to fierce heat;

  14. 81:13 And when the Garden is brought near;-

  15. 81:14 (Then) shall each soul know what it has put forward.

  16. 81:15 So verily I call to witness the planets - that recede,

  17. 81:16 Go straight, or hide;

  18. 81:17 And the Night as it dissipates;

  19. 81:18 And the Dawn as it breathes away the darkness;-

  20. 81:19 Verily this is the word of a most honourable Messenger,

  21. 81:20 Endued with Power, with rank before the Lord of the Throne,

  22. 81:21 With authority there, (and) faithful to his trust.

  23. 81:22 And (O people!) your companion is not one possessed;

  24. 81:23 And without doubt he saw him in the clear horizon.

  25. 81:24 Neither doth he withhold grudgingly a knowledge of the Unseen.

  26. 81:25 Nor is it the word of an evil spirit accursed.

  27. 81:26 When whither go ye?

  28. 81:27 Verily this is no less than a Message to (all) the Worlds:

  29. 81:28 (With profit) to whoever among you wills to go straight:

  30. 81:29 But ye shall not will except as Allah wills,- the Cherisher of the Worlds.
