Quran Chapter 81


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.
