Holy Quran 81


1WHEN THE SUN is folded up,
2The stars turn dim and scatter,
3The mountains made to move,
4The ten-month pregnant female camels are abandoned,
5The wild beasts stampede on the run,
6When the oceans surge and swell,
7When souls are reunited (with the bodies)
8And the little girl buried alive is asked
9For what crime she was put to death;
10When the ledgers are laid open,
11The curtain drawn back from the skies,
12When Hell is set ablaze,
13And Paradise brought near,
14(Then) every soul will know what it had prepared (for itself).
15So, I call the receding stars to witness,
16The planets withdrawing into themselves,
17The closing night,
18The rising dawn,
19That this is indeed the word of an honoured Messenger,
20Full of power, well-established (in position) with the Lord and Master of the Throne,
21Obeyed and worthy there of trust.
22Your companion is not mad.
23He had surely seen Him on the clear horizon.
24He is not chary of making public what is unknown.
25This is not the utterance of an accursed devil.
26So whither do you stray?
27This is a reminder for all the peoples of the world,
28For those of you who desire to walk the path that is straight,
29Though you cannot desire except as God will, the Lord of all the worlds.
