George Sale rendition of Surah The Overthrowing, The Cessation(at-Takwir)
81:1 When the sun shall be folded up
81:2 and when the stars shall fall
81:3 and when the mountains shall be made to pass away
81:4 and when the camels ten months gone with young shall be neglected
81:5 and when the wild beasts shall be gathered together
81:6 and when the seas shall boil
81:7 and when the souls shall be joined again to their bodies
81:8 and when the girl who hath been buried alive shall be aske
81:9 for what crime she was put to death
81:10 and when the books shall be laid open
81:11 and when the heaven shall be removed
81:12 and when hell shall burn fiercely
81:13 and when paradise shall be brought near
81:14 Every soul shall know what it hath wrought
81:15 Verily I swear by the stars which are retrograde
81:16 which move swiftly, and which hide themselves
81:17 and by the night, when it cometh on
81:18 and by the morning, when it appeareth
81:19 that these are the words of an honourable messenger
81:20 endued with strengeth, of established dignity in the sight of the possessor of the throne
81:21 obeyed by the angels under his authority, and faithful
81:22 And your companion Mohammed is not distracted
81:23 He had already seen him in the clear horizon
81:24 And he suspected not the secrets revealed unto him
81:25 Neither are these the words of an accursed devil
81:26 Whither, therefore, are ye going
81:27 This is no other than an admonition unto all creatures
81:28 unto him among you who shall be willing to walk uprightly
81:29 But ye shall not will, unless God willeth, the Lord of all creatures
