The Rolling (Al-Takweer)
29 verses, revealed in Mecca after Thorns (Al-Masad) before The All High (Al-A'alaa)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
When the sun shall be folded up, (1) And when the stars darken, (2) The mountains made to move, (3) when the pregnant camels shall be neglected, (4) and when all beasts are gathered together, (5) and when the seas are set on fire, (6) And when the souls are paired. (7) And when the female (infant) buried alive (as the pagan Arabs used to do) shall be questioned. (8) for what sin she was killed, (9) and when the scrolls of (men's) deeds shall be unfolded, (10) and when Heaven is laid bare; (11) when Hell shall be set blazing, (12) And when Paradise is brought near, (13) then, each soul shall know what it has produced. (14) I swear by the receding stars, (15) And by the planets that move swiftly and hide themselves, (16) And by the night as it closes in (17) And the breath of morning (18) That this is in truth the word of an honoured messenger, (19) Endued with Power, with rank before the Lord of the Throne, (20) Obeyed (by the angels), trustworthy there (in the heavens). (21) And your companion is not [at all] mad. (22) And he has already seen Gabriel in the clear horizon. (23) he is not grudging of the Unseen. (24) The Quran is not the word of condemned satan. (25) Whither, then, will you go? (26) This is merely a reminder to all mankind; (27) to every one of you who wishes to tread the straight path. (28) but your wishing will not avail unless Allah, the Lord of the Universe, so wishes. (29)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
