In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

When the sun will cease to shine;[1] when the stars will loose their luster;[2] when the mountains will be blown away;[3] when the ten-month pregnant she-camels will be left unattended;[4] when the wild beasts will be brought together;[5] when the oceans will be set ablaze;[6] when the souls will be reunited with the bodies;[7] when the infant girls buried alive (here reference is made to the Pre-Islamic Arab custom of burying new born girls alive) will be questioned[8] for what sin she was killed;[9] when the record will be laid open;[10] when the heaven will be stripped bare;[11] when hell will be set to blaze,[12] and when the paradise will be brought near:[13] then each soul shall know what it has bought with it.[14]

81:[1-14]

A dreadful scene of the Doomsday

But no! I swear by the retreating stars;[15] that run their course and hide;[16] by the night as it dissipates;[17] by the morning when it breaths again:[18] surely this word (The Qur’an) is brought by a noble Messenger (Gabriel),[19] possessor of mighty power, having very high rank with the Owner of the Throne (Allah),[20] who is obeyed in heaven, and is trustworthy.[21] O people of Makkah! Your companion has not gone mad;[22] he (Muhammad) indeed saw him (Gabriel) in the clear horizon[23] and he is not stingy to withhold the knowledge of the unseen.[24] This (Qur’an) is not the word of an accursed Shaităn.[25] Where then are you going?[26] This is but a Message to all the people of the world,[27] to each one who wishes to follow the Right Way.[28] Yet your wishes are of no avail unless Allah, the Rabb of the worlds, pleases so.[29]

81:[15-29]

The Qur'an is conveyed to the Prophet through angel Gabriel



This message is for all the people of the world

Major Issues, Divine Law and Guidance:

* A scene from the scenes of the Doomsday.
* The Qur’an is conveyed to the Prophet through angel Gabriel.
* This message of The Qur'an is for all the people of the world.

This Sürah has two themes:

  1. The Hereafter and
  2. The Institution of Risălat (Prophethood).

The first six verses mention the first stage of the Resurrection when the sun will lose its light, the stars will scatter, the mountains will be uprooted and will disperse, the people will become heedless of their dearest possessions, the beasts of the jungle will be stupefied and will gather together, and the seas will boil up. Then the next seven verses mention the second stage when the souls will be reunited with their bodies, the records will be laid open, the people will be called to account for their crimes, the heavens will be unveiled, and Hell and Heaven will be brought into full view. After depicting the Hereafter this way, man has been left to ponder his own self and deeds, saying: “Then each man shall himself know what he has brought with him.”

The people of Makkah are addressed: "Whatever Muhammad (pbuh) is presenting before you, is not the bragging of a madman, nor an evil suggestion inspired by Satan, but the word of a noble, exalted and trustworthy messenger sent by God, whom Muhammad (pbuh) has seen with his own eyes in the bright horizon of the clear sky in broad day light."
