In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
81:1 When the sun is folded up,
81:2 And when the stars are dust-coloured,
81:3 And when the mountains are made to pass away,
81:4 And when the camels are abandoned,
81:5 And when the wild animals are gathered together,
81:6 And when the cities are made to swell,
81:7 And when men are united,
81:8 And when the one buried alive is asked
81:9 For what sin she was killed,
81:10 And when the books are spread,
81:11 And when the heaven has its covering removed,
81:12 And when hell is kindled,
81:13 And when the Garden is brought nigh —
81:14 Every soul will know what it has prepared.
81:15 Nay, I call to witness the stars,
81:16 Running their course, (and) setting,
81:17 And the night when it departs,
81:18 And the morning when it brightens,
81:19 Surely it is the word of a bountiful Messenger,
81:20 The possessor of strength, established in the presence of the Lord of the Throne,
81:21 One (to be) obeyed, and faithful.
81:22 And your companion is not mad.
81:23 And truly he saw himself on the clear horizon.
81:24 Nor is he niggardly of the unseen.
81:25 Nor is it the word of an accursed devil —
81:26 Whither then are you going?
81:27 It is naught but a Reminder for the nations,
81:28 For him among you who will go straight.
81:29 And you will not, except Allah please, the Lord of the worlds.
