  • 81. THE OVERTHROWING
    EXTINGUISHED! WRAPPING THINGS UP

    Revealed before the Hijrah. This chapter has 29 verses.


    In the name of God,
    Most Gracious, Most Merciful

    81:1 When the sun (with its spacious light) is folded up;
    81:2 When the stars fall, losing their lustre;
    81:3 When the mountains vanish (like a mirage);
    81:4 When the she-camels, ten months with young, are left untended;
    81:5 When the wild beasts are herded together (in the human habitations);
    81:6 When the oceans boil over with a swell;
    81:7 When the souls are sorted out, (being joined, like with like);
    81:8 When the female (infant), buried alive, is questioned -
    81:9 For what crime she was killed;
    81:10 When the scrolls are laid open;
    81:11 When the world on High is unveiled;
    81:12 When the Blazing Fire is kindled to fierce heat;
    81:13 And when the Garden is brought near;-
    81:14 (Then) shall each soul know what it has put forward.
    81:15 So verily I call to witness the planets - that recede,
    81:16 Go straight, or hide;
    81:17 And the Night as it dissipates;
    81:18 And the Dawn as it breathes away the darkness;-
    81:19 Verily this is the word of a most honourable Messenger,
    81:20 Endued with Power, with rank before the Lord of the Throne,
    81:21 With authority there, (and) faithful to his trust.
    81:22 And (O people!) your companion is not one possessed;
    81:23 And without doubt he saw him in the clear horizon.
    81:24 Neither doth he withhold grudgingly a knowledge of the Unseen.
    81:25 Nor is it the word of an evil spirit accursed.
    81:26 When whither go ye?
    81:27 Verily this is no less than a Message to (all) the Worlds:
    81:28 (With profit) to whoever among you wills to go straight:
    81:29 But ye shall not will except as God wills,- the Cherisher of the Worlds.
