Surah 81 - Folded Up
In the Name
of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
the sun is covered,
when the stars darken,
when the mountains are made to pass away,
when the camels are left untended,
when the wild animals are made to go forth,
when the seas are set on fire,
when souls are united,
when the female infant buried alive is asked
what sin she was killed,
when the books are spread,
when the heaven has its covering removed,
when the hell is kindled up,
when the garden is brought nigh,
Every soul shall (then) know what it has prepared.
nay! I swear by the stars,
run their course (and) hide themselves,
the night when it departs,
the morning when it brightens,
surely it is the Word of an honored messenger,
processor of strength, having an honorable place with the Lord of the Dominion,
(to be) obeyed, and faithful in trust.
your companion is not gone mad.
of a truth he saw himself on the clear horizon.
of the unseen is he a tenacious concealer.
is it the word of the cursed Shaitan,
Whither then will you go?
is naught but a reminder for the nations,
him among you who pleases to go straight.
you do not please except that Allah please, the Lord of the worlds.
