Edward Henry Palmer rendition of Surah The Overthrowing, The Cessation(at-Takwir)
81:1 When the sun is folded up
81:2 And when the stars do fall
81:3 And when the mountains are moved
81:4 And when the she-camels ten months gone with young shall be neglected
81:5 And when the beasts shall be crowded together
81:6 And when the seas shall surge up
81:7 And when souls shall be paired with bodies
81:8 And when the child who was buried alive shall be aske
81:9 for what sin she was slain
81:10 And when the pages shall be spread out
81:11 And when the heaven shall be flayed
81:12 And when hell shall be set ablaze
81:13 And when Paradise shall be brought nigh
81:14 The soul shall know what it has produced
81:15 I need not swear by the stars that slink back
81:16 moving swiftly, slinking into their dens
81:17 Nor by the night when darkness draws on
81:18 Nor by the morn when it first breathes up
81:19 Verily, it is the speech of a noble apostle
81:20 mighty, standing sure with the Lord of the throne
81:21 obeyed and trusty too
81:22 Your comrade is not mad
81:23 he saw him on the plain horizon
81:24 nor does he grudge to communicate the unseen
81:25 Nor is it the speech of a pelted devil
81:26 Then whither do ye go
81:27 It is but a reminder to the worlds
81:28 to whomsoever of you pleases to go straight:
81:29 but ye will not please, except God, the Lord of the world, should please
