Qur'an - Translation
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.
