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 Most Merciful
WHEN THE SUN is shrouded in darkness, (1) And when the stars fall down. (2) And when the hills are moved, (3) when the ten-months pregnant camels shall be abandoned, (4) the wild beasts are herded together, (5) When the oceans boil over with a swell; (6) souls are reunited with their bodies, (7) and when the female infant buried alive is asked (8) for what crime she was slain, (9) and when the scrolls of (men's) deeds shall be unfolded, (10) when heaven is stripped, (11) When Hell is set ablaze, (12) and Paradise brought nigh: (13) [then] each soul shall know what it has put forward. (14) So verily, I swear by the planets that recede (i.e. disappear during the day and appear during the night). (15) The planets withdrawing into themselves, (16) by the night swarming, (17) and the first breath of morning. (18) Truly, this is the word brought by a noble messenger, (19) of power, given a rank by the Owner of the Throne (20) Obeyed (by the angels), trustworthy there (in the heavens). (21) And your companion is not [at all] mad. (22) And without doubt he saw him in the clear horizon. (23) And he is of the unseen not a tenacious concealer. (24) nor is it a word of an accursed Satan. (25) Whither, then, will you go? (26) That is but an advice to the entire creation! (27) to every one of you who wishes to tread the straight path. (28) but you shall not, unless Allah wills, the Lord of all the Worlds. (29)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
