Surah 81: at-Takwir

bismillah ir rahman ir rahim

إِذَا الشَّمْسُ كُوِّرَتْ 1

When the sun is wrapped up [in darkness]

وَإِذَا النُّجُومُ انكَدَرَتْ 2

And when the stars fall, dispersing,

وَإِذَا الْجِبَالُ سُيِّرَتْ 3

And when the mountains are removed

وَإِذَا الْعِشَارُ عُطِّلَتْ 4

And when full-term she-camels are neglected

وَإِذَا الْوُحُوشُ حُشِرَتْ 5

And when the wild beasts are gathered

وَإِذَا الْبِحَارُ سُجِّرَتْ 6

And when the seas are filled with flame

وَإِذَا النُّفُوسُ زُوِّجَتْ 7

And when the souls are paired

وَإِذَا الْمَوْءُودَةُ سُئِلَتْ 8

And when the girl [who was] buried alive is asked

بِأَيِّ ذَنبٍ قُتِلَتْ 9

For what sin she was killed

وَإِذَا الصُّحُفُ نُشِرَتْ 10

And when the pages are made public

وَإِذَا السَّمَاءُ كُشِطَتْ 11

And when the sky is stripped away

وَإِذَا الْجَحِيمُ سُعِّرَتْ 12

And when Hellfire is set ablaze

وَإِذَا الْجَنَّةُ أُزْلِفَتْ 13

And when Paradise is brought near,

عَلِمَتْ نَفْسٌ مَّا أَحْضَرَتْ 14

A soul will [then] know what it has brought [with it].

فَلَا أُقْسِمُ بِالْخُنَّسِ 15

So I swear by the retreating stars -

الْجَوَارِ الْكُنَّسِ 16

Those that run [their courses] and disappear -

وَاللَّيْلِ إِذَا عَسْعَسَ 17

And by the night as it closes in

وَالصُّبْحِ إِذَا تَنَفَّسَ 18

And by the dawn when it breathes

إِنَّهُ لَقَوْلُ رَسُولٍ كَرِيمٍ 19

[That] indeed, the Qur'an is a word [conveyed by] a noble messenger

ذِي قُوَّةٍ عِندَ ذِي الْعَرْشِ مَكِينٍ 20

[Who is] possessed of power and with the Owner of the Throne, secure [in position],

مُّطَاعٍ ثَمَّ أَمِينٍ 21

Obeyed there [in the heavens] and trustworthy.

وَمَا صَاحِبُكُم بِمَجْنُونٍ 22

And your companion is not [at all] mad.

وَلَقَدْ رَآهُ بِالْأُفُقِ الْمُبِينِ 23

And he has already seen Gabriel in the clear horizon.

وَمَا هُوَ عَلَى الْغَيْبِ بِضَنِينٍ 24

And Muhammad is not a withholder of [knowledge of] the unseen.

وَمَا هُوَ بِقَوْلِ شَيْطَانٍ رَّجِيمٍ 25

And the Qur'an is not the word of a devil, expelled [from the heavens].

فَأَيْنَ تَذْهَبُونَ 26

So where are you going?

إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا ذِكْرٌ لِّلْعَالَمِينَ 27

It is not except a reminder to the worlds

لِمَن شَاءَ مِنكُمْ أَن يَسْتَقِيمَ 28

For whoever wills among you to take a right course.

وَمَا تَشَاءُونَ إِلَّا أَن يَشَاءَ اللَّهُ رَبُّ الْعَالَمِينَ 29

And you do not will except that Allah wills - Lord of the worlds.
