Surah At-Takwir (The Overthrowing)

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

When the sun is wound round and lost its light (is lost and is overthrown). And when the stars fall; And when the mountains are made to pass away; And when the pregnant she-camels are be neglected; And when the wild beasts are gathered together; And when the seas become as blazing Fire or overflow; And when the souls are joined with their bodies (the good with the good and bad with the bad). And when the female (infant) buried alive (as the pagan Arabs used to do) is questioned. For what sin was she killed? And when the (written) pages [of deeds (good and bad) of every person] are laid open; And when the heaven is stripped off and taken away from its place; And when Hell-fire is set ablaze. And when Paradise is brought near, (Then) every person will know what he has brought (of good and evil). So verily, I swear by the planets that recede (i.e. disappear during the day and appear during the night). And by the planets that move swiftly and hide themselves, And by the night as it departs; And by the dawn as it brightens; Verily, this is the Word (this Qur'n brought by) a most honourable messenger [Jibrail (Gabriel), from Allh to the Prophet Muhammad (SAW)] Owner of power, (and high rank) with (Allh) the Lord of the Throne, Obeyed (by the angels in the heavens) and trustworthy. And (O people) your companion (Muhammad (SAW)) is not a madman; And indeed he (Muhammad (SAW)) saw him [Jibril (Gabriel)] in the clear horizon (towards the east) And he (Muhammad (SAW)) withholds not a knowledge of the unseen. And it (the Qur'n) is not the word of the outcast Shaitn (Satan). Then where are you going? Verily, this (the Qur'n) is no less than a Reminder to (all) the 'Alamn (mankind and jinn).

Surah At-Takwir (The Overthrowing)


28. 29.

To whomsoever among you who wills to walk straight, And you cannot will, unless (it be) that Allh wills, the Lord of the 'Alamn (mankind, jinn and all that exists).
