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
