أَعُوذُ بِاللَّـهِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ

“I seek refuge with Allah against satan the accursed”

Chapter no. 81: The Overthrowing

In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

When the sun will be folded,

and when the stars slip out of place,

and when the mountains travel along,

and when ten-month pregnant camels are neglected,

and when wild beasts are herded together,

and when the seas are set on fire,

and when the souls ˹and their bodies˺ are paired ˹once more˺,

and when baby girls, buried alive, are asked,

for what crime they were put to death,

And when the Scrolls of deeds will be unrolled,

and when the sky is stripped bare, 

and when the Hellfire is fiercely flared up,

and when the Paradise is brought near,

˹on that Day˺ each soul will know what ˹deeds˺ it has brought along.

I do swear by the receding stars

which travel and hide,

and the night as it falls

and the day as it takes its first breath.

Indeed, this ˹Quran˺ is the Word of ˹Allah delivered by Gabriel,˺ a noble messenger angel,

full of power, held in honor by the Lord of the Throne,

obeyed there ˹in heaven˺, and trustworthy.

Your companion is not crazy! 

And he did see that ˹angel˺ on the clear horizon,

nor was he grudging about the Unseen.

And this ˹Quran˺ is not the word of an outcast devil

So where are you (all) heading for? This is a message for all people; for those who wish to take the straight path.

And in no way can you decide except "when" Allah "so" decides, The Lord of the worlds.
