[81.1] When the sun is
[81.2] And when the stars fall,
[81.3] And when the hills are moved,
[81.4] And when the camels big with young are abandoned,
[81.5] And when the wild beasts are herded together,
[81.6] And when the seas rise,
[81.7] And when souls are reunited,
[81.8] And when the girl-child that was buried alive is asked
[81.9] For what sin she was slain,
[81.10] And when the pages are laid open,
[81.11] And when the sky is torn away,
[81.12] And when hell is lighted,
[81.13] And when the Garden is brought nigh,
[81.14] (Then) every soul will know what it hath made ready.
[81.15] Oh, but I call to witness the planets,
[81.16] The stars which rise and set,
[81.17] And the close of night,
[81.18] And the breath of morning
[81.19] That this is in truth the word of an honoured messenger,
[81.20] Mighty, established in the presence of the Lord of the
[81.21] (One) to be obeyed, and trustworthy;
[81.22] And your comrade is not mad.
[81.23] Surely he beheld Him on the clear horizon.
[81.24] And he is not avid of the Unseen.
[81.25] Nor is this the utterance of a devil worthy to be
[81.26] Whither then go ye ?
[81.27] This is naught else than a reminder unto creation,
[81.28] Unto whomsoever of you willeth to walk straight.
[81.29] And ye will not, unless (it be) that Allah willeth, the
Lord of Creation.
