Surah At-Takwir 81:11-29

81:11 And when heaven is laid bare.

81:12 And when the blazing fire [of hell] is kindled bright. 

81:13 And when paradise is brought into view.

81:14 [On that Day] every human being will come to know what he has prepared [for himself].

81:15 But Nay! I call to witness the revolving stars.

81:16 The planets that run their course and set 

81:17 And the night as it darkly falls 

81:18 And the morn as it softly breathes. 

81:19 Behold, this [divine writ] is indeed the [inspired] word of a noble apostle

81:20 With strength endowed, secure with Him who in Almightiness is enthroned.

81:21 [The word] of one to be heeded, and worthy of trust!

81: 22 For, this fellow-man of yours is not a madman.

81:23 He truly beheld [the angel – beheld] him on the clear horizon. 

81:24 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.

81:25 Nor is this [message] the word of any satanic force accursed.

81:26 Whither, then, will you go?

81:27 This [message] is no less than a reminder to all mankind. 

81:28 To every one of you who wills to walk a straightway.

81: 29 But you cannot will it unless God, the Sustainer of all the worlds, wills [to show you that way].


The divine scriptures are God’s beacons to the world. Surely God offered His trust to the heavens and the earth, and the hills, but they shrank from bearing it and were afraid of it. And man undertook it.
