* | quran | * | 81. at-takwir. the cessation      <   > 

1.  *     When the sun Kuwwirat (wound round and lost its light and is overthrown ).
2.  *     And when the stars shall fall;
3.  *     And when the mountains shall made to pass away;
4.  *     And when the pregnant she-camels shall be neglected;
5.  *     And when the wild beasts shall be gathered together;
6.  *     And when the seas shall become as blazing Fire or shall overflow;
7.  *     And when the souls shall be joined with their bodies;
8.  *     And when the female (infant) buried alive (as the pagan Arabs used to do) shall be questioned.
9.  *     For what sin she was killed?
10.  *     And when the written pages of deeds (good and bad) of every person shall be laid open;
11.  *     And when the heaven shall be stripped off and taken away from its place;
12.  *     And when Hell-fire shall be kindled to fierce ablaze.
13.  *     And when Paradise shall be brought near,
14.  *     (Then) every person will know what he has brought (of good and evil).
15.  *     So verily, I swear by the planets that recede (i.e. disappear during the day and appear during the night).
16.  *     And by the planets that move swiftly and hide themselves,
17.  *     And by the night as it departs;
18.  *     And by the dawn as it brightens;
19.  *     Verily, this is the Word (this Quran brought by) a most honourable messenger (Jibrael (Gabriel), from Allah to the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)).
20.  *     Owner of power, and high rank with (Allah) the Lord of the Throne,
21.  *     Obeyed (by the angels), trustworthy there (in the heavens).
22.  *     And (O people) your companion (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) is not a madman;
23.  *     And indeed he (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) saw him (Jibrael (Gabriel)) in the clear horizon (towards the east).
24.  *     And he (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) withholds not a knowledge of the unseen.
25.  *     And it (the Quran) is not the word of the outcast Shaitan (Satan).
26.  *     Then where are you going?
27.  *     Verily, this (the Quran) is no less than a Reminder to (all) the Alameen (mankind and jinns) .
28.  *     To whomsoever among you who wills to walk straight,
29.  *     And you will not, unless (it be) that Allah wills, the Lord of the Alameen (mankind, jinns and all that exists).
