The Rolling (Al-Takweer)
29 verses, revealed in Mecca after Thorns (Al-Masad) before The All High (Al-A'alaa)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
When the sun shall be folded up, (1) and when the stars lose their light, (2) And when the mountains shall made to pass away; (3) and when she-camels big with young, about to give birth, are left untended, (4) When the wild beasts are herded together (in the human habitations); (5) And when the seas shall be filled, (6) when the souls are coupled (to their body), (7) and when the girl-child buried alive shall be asked: (8) for what sin she was killed, (9) When the ledgers are laid open, (10) And when the heaven has its covering removed, (11) hell is made to blaze, (12) when Paradise is brought close: (13) then shall a soul know what it has produced. (14) So by oath of those that revolve. (The planets.) (15) the planets that run their course and set, (16) And by the night as it closes in (17) And the Dawn as it breathes away the darkness;- (18) Verily, this is the Word (this Quran brought by) a most honourable messenger [Jibrael (Gabriel), from Allah to the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)]. (19) endowed with power and held in honour by the Lord of the Throne -- (20) who is obeyed there and is worthy of trust. (21) Your companion is not mad. (22) he truly beheld him [the angel] on the clear horizon. (23) Neither doth he withhold grudgingly a knowledge of the Unseen. (24) Nor is this [message] the word of any satanic force accursed. (25) Then where are you going? (26) This is nothing but a Reminder to the worlds, (27) to every one of you who wishes to tread the straight path. (28) But you cannot will it unless God, the Sustainer of all the worlds, wills [to show you that way]. (29)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
