Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar rendition of Surah The Overthrowing, The Cessation(at-Takwir)
81:1 When the sun will be darkened
81:2 and when the stars plunge down
81:3 and when the mountains will be set in motion
81:4 and when the pregnant camels are ignored
81:5 and when the savage beasts will be assembled together
81:6 and when the seas are caused to overflow
81:7 and when the souls will be mated
81:8 and when the buried infant girl will be asked
81:9 for which impiety she was slain
81:10 and when the scrolls will be unfolded
81:11 and when the heaven is stripped off
81:12 and when hellfire will be caused to burn fiercely
81:13 and when the Garden will be brought close,
81:14 every soul will know to what it was prone.
81:15 So no! I swear an oath by the stars that recede,
81:16 by the ones that run, the setting stars
81:17 and by the night when it swarmed
81:18 and by the morning, when it sighed,
81:19 truly, the Quran is a saying from a generous Messenger,
81:20 possessed of strength, with the Possessor of the Throne, secure,
81:21 one who is obeyed and, again, trustworthy.
81:22 And your companion is not one who is possessed.
81:23 And, certainly, he saw him on the clear horizon.
81:24 And he is not avaricious for the unseen,
81:25 nor is it the saying of the accursed Satan.
81:26 So where are you going?
81:27 Truly, it is not but a Remembrance to the worlds
81:28 to whoever among you willed to go straight.
81:29 But you will not, unless God wills, the Lord of the worlds.
