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 Beneficent, the Merciful
When the sun is wound up; (1) And when the stars fall down. (2) The mountains made to move, (3) when the ten-months pregnant camels shall be abandoned, (4) And when the wild animals are made to go forth, (5) and when the seas boil over, (6) when the souls are divided into different classes, (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) When the ledgers are laid open, (10) And when the heaven has its covering removed, (11) And when hell is further enflamed. (12) when Paradise is brought close: (13) Every soul shall (then) know what it has prepared. (14) So I swear by the retreating stars - (15) That run their course (and) hide themselves, (16) And the close of night, (17) And the morning when it brightens, (18) That this is indeed the word of an honoured Messenger, (19) Owner of strength, of established dignity with the Lord of the Throne. (20) obeyed, and honest. (21) And (O people!) your companion is not one possessed; (22) He had surely seen Him on the clear horizon. (23) Neither doth he withhold grudgingly a knowledge of the Unseen. (24) The Quran is not the word of condemned satan. (25) Then where are you going? (26) It is naught but a Reminder unto all beings, (27) Unto whomsoever of you willeth to walk straight. (28) And ye will not, unless (it be) that Allah willeth, the Lord of Creation. (29)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
