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 is overthrown, 1 And when the stars shall dart down, 2 And when the hills are moved, 3 when the pregnant camels are neglected, 4 when the savage beasts shall be mustered, 5 and when the seas are set on fire, 6 when the souls shall be rejoined (with their bodies), 7 And the little girl buried alive is asked 8 For what crime she was killed; 9 when the records of men's deeds are laid open, 10 And when the sky is torn away, 11 And when Hell-fire shall be kindled to fierce ablaze. 12 And Paradise brought near, 13 then shall a soul know what it has produced. 14 No indeed; I swear by the alternating stars 15 the planets that run their course and set, 16 and sit during the day, or by the darkening night 17 and the morning when it extends, 18 behold, this [divine writ] is indeed the [inspired] word of a noble apostle, 19 endowed with power and held in honour by the Lord of the Throne -- 20 Obeyed one; then trustworthy. 21 And (O people!) your companion is not one possessed; 22 Assuredly he beheld him in the horizon manifest. 23 and he is not one to begrudge others the knowledge [of whatever has been revealed to him] out of that which is beyond the reach of human Perception. 24 Nor is it the word of the cursed Shaitan, 25 When whither go ye? 26 This is naught else than a reminder unto creation, 27 Unto whomsoever of you willeth to walk straight. 28 but your wishing will not avail unless Allah, the Lord of the Universe, so wishes. 29
God the Almighty always says the truth.
