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 Merciful, the Compassionate
When the sun is folded up, (1) And when the stars darken, (2) the mountains are scattered about as dust, (3) And when milch camels roam abandoned. (4) And when the wild beasts shall be gathered together, (5) when the seas are set boiling, (6) When the souls are sorted out, (being joined, like with like); (7) and when the girl-child buried alive shall be asked: (8) for what crime she had been slain, (9) When the ledgers are laid open, (10) And when the heaven shall be stripped, (11) and when Hell is set ablaze, (12) and Paradise is brought near, (13) (Then) shall each soul know what it has put forward. (14) BUT NAY! I call to witness the revolving stars, (15) stars which are visible during the night (16) and sit during the day, or by the darkening night (17) and the morn as it breathes. (18) This is indeed the recitation of an honoured Noble Messenger. (Angel Jibreel peace and blessings be upon him.) (19) Owner of strength, of established dignity with the Lord of the Throne. (20) The one who is obeyed, and trustworthy. (Other angels obey angel Jibreel). (21) Your Companion is not mad, (22) He certainly saw him (Gabriel) high up on the horizon in his original form (23) he is not niggardly of the Unseen. (24) The Quran is not the word of condemned satan. (25) So where are you going? (26) This is naught else than a reminder unto creation, (27) to everyone of you who wills to walk a straight way. (28) but will you shall not, unless God wills, the Lord of all Being. (29)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
