the sun is wrapped up [in darkness]
when the stars fall, dispersing,
when the mountains are removed
when full-term she-camels are neglected
when the wild beasts are gathered
when the seas are filled with flame
when the souls are paired
when the girl [who was] buried alive is asked
what sin she was killed
when the pages are made public
when the sky is stripped away
when Hellfire is set ablaze
when Paradise is brought near,
soul will [then] know what it has brought [with it].
I swear by the retreating stars –
that run [their courses] and disappear
by the night as it closes in
by the dawn when it breathes
indeed, the Qur’ān is a word [conveyed by] a noble messenger
is] possessed of power and with the Owner of the Throne, secure [in position],
there [in the heavens] and trustworthy.
your companion is not [at all] mad.
he has already seen Gabriel in the clear horizon.
Muúammad is not a withholder of [knowledge of] the unseen.
the Qur’ān is not the word of a devil, expelled [from the heavens].
where are you going?
is not except a reminder to the worlds
whoever wills among you to take a right course.
you do not will except that Allāh wills – Lord
of the worlds.
