The Rolling (Al-Takweer)
29 verses, revealed in Mecca after Thorns (Al-Masad) before The All High (Al-A'alaa)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
When the sun Kuwwirat (wound round and lost its light and is overthrown). (1) and when the stars lose their light, (2) the mountains are scattered about as dust, (3) And when milch camels roam abandoned. (4) the wild beasts are herded together, (5) when the seas shall be set boiling, (6) and when all human beings are coupled [with their deeds,] (7) questions are asked about the baby girls buried alive, (8) For what sin she was killed, (9) When the scrolls are laid open; (10) And when the heaven shall be stripped off and taken away from its place; (11) And when hell is lighted, (12) And when the Garden is brought near;- (13) (Then) every soul will know what it had prepared (for itself). (14) So by oath of those that revolve. (The planets.) (15) And by the planets that move swiftly and hide themselves, (16) and the night as it darkly falls, (17) and the morning when it extends, (18) That this is in truth the word of an honoured messenger, (19) with strength endowed, secure with Him who in almightiness is enthroned (20) [the word] of one to be heeded, and worthy of trust! (21) And your comrade is not mad. (22) Assuredly he beheld him in the horizon manifest. (23) Nor of the unseen is he a tenacious concealer. (24) Nor is this the word of an outcast devil. (25) Whither, then, will you go? (26) This is merely a reminder to all mankind; (27) For whoever wills among you to take a right course. (28) And what will you wish, except if Allah wills the Lord of the Creation. (29)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
