Quran - Chapter 81

Quran Chapters Index

The Folded Up

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

[81.1] When the sun is covered,
[81.2] And when the stars darken,
[81.3] And when the mountains are made to pass away,
[81.4] And when the camels are left untended,
[81.5] And when the wild animals are made to go forth,
[81.6] And when the seas are set on fire,
[81.7] And when souls are united,
[81.8] And when the female infant buried alive is asked
[81.9] For what sin she was killed,
[81.10] And when the books are spread,
[81.11] And when the heaven has its covering removed,
[81.12] And when the hell is kindled up,
[81.13] And when the garden is brought nigh,
[81.14] Every soul shall (then) know what it has prepared.
[81.15] But nay! I swear by the stars,

[81.16] That run their course (and) hide themselves,
[81.17] And the night when it departs,
[81.18] And the morning when it brightens,
[81.19] Most surely it is the Word of an honored messenger,
[81.20] The processor of strength, having an honorable place with the Lord of the Dominion,
[81.21] One (to be) obeyed, and faithful in trust.
[81.22] And your companion is not gone mad.
[81.23] And of a truth he saw himself on the clear horizon.
[81.24] Nor of the unseen is he a tenacious concealer.
[81.25] Nor is it the word of the cursed Shaitan,
[81.26] Whither then will you go?
[81.27] It is naught but a reminder for the nations,
[81.28] For him among you who pleases to go straight.
[81.29] And you do not please except that Allah please, the Lord of the worlds.
