When the sun is put out,
2
and when the stars fall down,
3
and when the mountains are blown away,
4
and when pregnant camels are left untended,1
5
and when wild beasts are gathered together,1
6
and when the seas are set on fire,1
7
and when the souls ˹and their bodies˺ are paired ˹once more˺,
8
and when baby girls, buried alive, are asked
9
for what crime they were put to death,1
10
and when the records ˹of deeds˺ are laid open,
11
and when the sky is stripped away,
12
and when the Hellfire is fiercely flared up,
13
and when Paradise is brought near—
14
˹on that Day˺ each soul will know what ˹deeds˺ it has brought along.
15
I do swear by the receding stars
16
which travel and hide,1
17
and the night as it falls
18
and the day as it breaks!1

Indeed, this ˹Quran˺ is the Word of ˹Allah delivered by Gabriel,˺ a noble messenger-angel,
20
full of power, held in honour by the Lord of the Throne,
21
obeyed there ˹in heaven˺, and trustworthy.
22
And your fellow man1 is not insane.
23
And he did see that ˹angel˺ on the clear horizon,1
24
and he does not withhold ˹what is revealed to him of˺ the unseen.
25
And this ˹Quran˺ is not the word of an outcast devil.1
26
So what ˹other˺ path would you take?
27
Surely this ˹Quran˺ is only a reminder to the whole world—
28
to whoever of you wills to take the Straight Way.
29
But you cannot will ˹to do so˺, except by the Will of Allah, the Lord of all worlds.
