81- The Rolling (Al-Takweer)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[81:1] When the sun is rolled.

[81:2] The stars are crashed into each other.

[81:3] The mountains are wiped out.

[81:4] The reproduction is halted.

[81:5] The beasts are summoned.

[81:6] The oceans are set aflame.

[81:7] The souls are restored to their bodies.

[81:8] The girl who was buried alive is asked:

[81:9] For what crime was she killed?

[81:10] The records are made known.

[81:11] The heaven is removed.

[81:12] Hell is ignited.

[81:13] Paradise is presented.

[81:14] Every soul will know everything it brought.

[81:15] I solemnly swear by the galaxies.

[81:16] Precisely running in their orbits.

[81:17] By the night as it falls.

[81:18] And the morn as it breathes.

[81:19] This is the utterance of an honorable messenger.

[81:20] Authorized by the Possessor of the Throne, fully supported.

[81:21] He shall be obeyed and trusted.

[81:22] Your friend (Rashad) is not crazy.

[81:23] He saw him at the high horizon.

[81:24] He is not holding back any news.

[81:25] It is not the talk of a rejected devil.

[81:26] Now then, where will you go?

[81:27] This is a message for all the people.

[81:28] For those who wish to go straight.

[81:29] Whatever you will is in accordance with the will of GOD, Lord of the universe.


82- The Shattering (Al-Infitaar)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[82:1] When the heaven is shattered.

[82:2] The planets are scattered.

[82:3] The oceans are exploded.

[82:4] The graves are opened.

[82:5] Every soul will find out what caused it to advance, and what caused it to regress.

[82:6] O you human being, what diverted you from your Lord Most Honorable?

[82:7] The One who created you, designed you, and perfected you.

[82:8] In whatever design He chose, He constructed it.

[82:9] Indeed, you disbelieve in the religion.

[82:10] Oblivious to the fact that there are (invisible) keepers around you.

[82:11] They are honest recorders.

[82:12] They record everything you do.

[82:13] Surely, the pious have deserved bliss.

[82:14] While the wicked have deserved Hell.

[82:15] Will incur it on the Day of Judgment.

[82:16] They never leave it.

[82:17] Awesome is the Day of Judgment.

[82:18] What a day; the Day of Judgment!

[82:19] That is the day when no soul can help another soul, and all decisions, on that day, will belong to GOD.


83- The Cheaters (Al-Mutaffifeen)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[83:1] Woe to the cheaters.

[83:2] Who demand full measure when receiving from the people.

[83:3] But when giving them the measures or weights, they cheat.

[83:4] Do they not know that they will be resurrected?

[83:5] On a tremendous day?

[83:6] That is the day when all people will stand before the Lord of the universe.

[83:7] Indeed, the book of the wicked is in Sijjeen.

[83:8] Do you know what Sijjeen is?

[83:9] A numerically structured book.

[83:10] Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[83:11] They do not believe in the Day of Judgment.

[83:12] None disbelieves therein except the transgressor, the sinful.

[83:13] When our revelations are recited to him, he says, "Tales from the past!"

[83:14] Indeed, their hearts have become shielded by their sins.

[83:15] Indeed, they will be isolated, on that day, from their Lord.

[83:16] Then they will be thrown into Hell.

[83:17] They will be told, "This is what you used to deny."

[83:18] Indeed, the book of the righteous will be in `Elleyyeen.

[83:19] Do you know what `Elleyyeen is?

[83:20] A numerically structured book.

[83:21] To be witnessed by those close to Me.

[83:22] The righteous have deserved bliss.

[83:23] On luxurious furnishings they watch.

[83:24] You recognize in their faces the joy of bliss.

[83:25] Their drinks will be spiced with nectar.

[83:26] Its spice is like musk. This is what the competitors should compete for.

[83:27] Mixed into it will be special flavors.

[83:28] From a spring that is reserved for those close to Me.

[83:29] The wicked used to laugh at those who believed.

[83:30] When they passed by them, they used to poke fun.

[83:31] When they got together with their people, they used to joke.

[83:32] Whenever they saw them, they said, "These people are far astray!

[83:33] "They have no such thing as (invisible) guards."

[83:34] Today, those who believed are laughing at the disbelievers.

[83:35] On luxurious furnishings they watch.

[83:36] Most assuredly, the disbelievers are requited for what they did.


84- The Rupture (Al-Inshiqaaq)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[84:1] The time will come when the sky is ruptured.

[84:2] It will submit to its Lord and expire.

[84:3] The earth will be leveled.

[84:4] It will eject its contents, as it erupts.

[84:5] It will submit to its Lord and expire.

[84:6] O humans, you are irreversibly heading for a meeting with your Lord.

[84:7] As for the one who receives his record in his right hand,

[84:8] His reckoning will be easy.

[84:9] He will return to his people joyfully.

[84:10] As for the one who receives his record behind his back,

[84:11] He will be ridden with remorse.

[84:12] And will burn in Hell.

[84:13] He used to act arrogantly among his people.

[84:14] He thought that he will never be called to account.

[84:15] Yes indeed, his Lord was Seer of him.

[84:16] I solemnly swear by the rosy dusk.

[84:17] And the night as it spreads.

[84:18] And the moon and its phases.

[84:19] You will move from stage to stage.

[84:20] Why do they not believe?

[84:21] And when the Quran is recited to them, they do not fall prostrate.

[84:22] This is because those who disbelieved are rejecting (the Quran).

[84:23] GOD is fully aware of their innermost thoughts.

[84:24] Promise them painful retribution.

[84:25] As for those who believed and led a righteous life, they receive a recompense that is well-deserved.


85- The Galaxies (Al-Burooj)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[85:1] The sky and its galaxies.

[85:2] The promised day.

[85:3] The witness and the witnessed.

[85:4] Woe to the people of the canyon.

[85:5] They ignited a blazing fire.

[85:6] Then sat around it.

[85:7] To watch the burning of the believers.

[85:8] They hated them for no other reason than believing in GOD, the Almighty, the Praiseworthy.

[85:9] To Him belongs the kingship of the heavens and the earth. And GOD witnesses all things.

[85:10] Surely, those who persecute the believing men and women, then fail to repent, have incurred the retribution of Gehenna; they have incurred the retribution of burning.

[85:11] Surely, those who believed and led a righteous life, have deserved gardens with flowing streams. This is the greatest triumph.

[85:12] Indeed, your Lord's blow is severe.

[85:13] He is the One who initiates and repeats.

[85:14] And He is the Forgiving, Most Kind.

[85:15] Possessor of the glorious throne.

[85:16] Doer of whatever He wills.

[85:17] Did you note the history of the troops?

[85:18] Pharaoh and Thamoud?

[85:19] Those who disbelieve are plagued with denial.

[85:20] GOD is fully aware of them.

[85:21] Indeed, it is a glorious Quran.

[85:22] In a preserved master tablet.


86- The Bright Star (Al-Taareq)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[86:1] By the sky and Al-Taareq.

[86:2] Do you know what Al-Taareq is?

[86:3] The bright star.

[86:4] Absolutely, everyone is well guarded.

[86:5] Let the human reflect on his creation.

[86:6] He was created from ejected liquid.

[86:7] From between the spine and the viscera.

[86:8] He is certainly able to resurrect him.

[86:9] The day all secrets become known.

[86:10] He will have no power, nor a helper.

[86:11] By the sky that returns (the water).

[86:12] By the earth that cracks (to grow plants).

[86:13] This is a serious narration.

[86:14] Not to be taken lightly.

[86:15] They plot and scheme.

[86:16] But so do I.

[86:17] Just respite the disbelievers a short respite.


87- The Most High (Al-Aala)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[87:1] Glorify the name of your Lord, the Most High.

[87:2] He creates and shapes.

[87:3] He designs and guides.

[87:4] He produces the pasture.

[87:5] Then turns it into light hay.

[87:6] We will recite to you; do not forget.

[87:7] Everything is in accordance with GOD's will; He knows what is declared, and what is hidden.

[87:8] We will direct you to the easiest path.

[87:9] Therefore, you shall remind; perhaps the reminder will benefit.

[87:10] The reverent will take heed.

[87:11] The wicked will avoid it.

[87:12] Consequently, he will suffer the great Hellfire.

[87:13] Wherein he never dies, nor stays alive.

[87:14] Successful indeed is the one who redeems his soul.

[87:15] By remembering the name of his Lord and observing the contact prayers (Salat).

[87:16] Indeed, you are preoccupied with this first life.

[87:17] Even though the Hereafter is far better and everlasting.

[87:18] This is recorded in the earlier teachings.

[87:19] The teachings of Abraham and Moses.


88- Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[88:1] Are you aware of the Overwhelming?

[88:2] Faces on that day will be shamed.

[88:3] Laboring and exhausted.

[88:4] Suffering in a blazing Hellfire.

[88:5] Drinking from a flaming spring.

[88:6] They will have no food except the useless variety.

[88:7] It never nourishes, nor satisfies hunger.

[88:8] Other faces on that day will be full of joy.

[88:9] Satisfied with their work.

[88:10] In an exalted Paradise.

[88:11] In it, no nonsense is heard.

[88:12] In it, a spring flows.

[88:13] In it, there are luxurious furnishings.

[88:14] And drinks made available.

[88:15] And pitchers in rows.

[88:16] And carpets throughout.

[88:17] Why do they not reflect on the camels and how they are created?

[88:18] And the sky and how it is raised.

[88:19] And the mountains and how they are constructed.

[88:20] And the earth and how it is built.

[88:21] You shall remind, for your mission is to deliver this reminder.

[88:22] You have no power over them.

[88:23] As for those who turn away and disbelieve.

[88:24] GOD will commit them to the great retribution.

[88:25] To us is their ultimate destiny.

[88:26] Then we will call them to account.


89- Dawn (Al-Fajr)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[89:1] By the dawn.

[89:2] And the ten nights.

[89:3] By the even and the odd.

[89:4] By the night as it passes.

[89:5] A profound oath, for one who possesses intelligence.

[89:6] Have you noted what your Lord did to `Aad?

[89:7] Erum; the town with tall buildings.

[89:8] There was nothing like it anywhere.

[89:9] Also Thamoud, who carved the rocks in their valley.

[89:10] And Pharaoh who possessed might.

[89:11] They all transgressed in the land.

[89:12] They spread evil throughout.

[89:13] Consequently, your Lord poured upon them a whipping retribution.

[89:14] Your Lord is ever watchful.

[89:15] When the human being is tested by his Lord, through blessings and joy, he says, "My Lord is generous towards me."

[89:16] But if He tests him through reduction in provisions, he says, "My Lord is humiliating me!"

[89:17] Wrong! It is you who brought it on yourselves by not regarding the orphan.

[89:18] And not advocating charity towards the poor.

[89:19] And consuming the inheritance of helpless orphans.

[89:20] And loving the money too much.

[89:21] Indeed, when the earth is crushed, utterly crushed.

[89:22] And your Lord comes, together with the angels in row after row.

[89:23] On that day, Gehenna will be brought forth. On that day, the human being will remember - but what a remembrance - it will be too late.

[89:24] He will say, "Oh, I wish I prepared for my (eternal) life."

[89:25] On that day, no retribution could be worse than His retribution.

[89:26] And no confinement is as effective as His confinement.

[89:27] As for you, O content soul.

[89:28] Return to your Lord, pleased and pleasing.

[89:29] Welcome into My servants.

[89:30] Welcome into My Paradise.


90- The Town (Al-Balad)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[90:1] I solemnly swear by this town.

[90:2] The town where you live.

[90:3] The begetting and the begotten.

[90:4] We created the human being to work hard (to redeem himself).

[90:5] Does he think that no one will ever call him to account?

[90:6] He boasts, "I spent so much money!"

[90:7] Does he think that no one sees him?

[90:8] Did we not give him two eyes?

[90:9] A tongue and two lips?

[90:10] Did we not show him the two paths?

[90:11] He should choose the difficult path.

[90:12] Which one is the difficult path?

[90:13] The freeing of slaves.

[90:14] Feeding, during the time of hardship.

[90:15] Orphans who are related.

[90:16] Or the poor who is in need.

[90:17] And being one of those who believe, and exhorting one another to be steadfast, and exhorting one another to be kind.

[90:18] These have deserved happiness.

[90:19] As for those who disbelieved in our revelations, they have incurred misery.

[90:20] They will be confined in the Hellfire.


91- The Sun (Al-Shams)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[91:1] By the sun and its brightness.

[91:2] The moon that follows it.

[91:3] The day that reveals.

[91:4] The night that covers.

[91:5] The sky and Him who built it.

[91:6] The earth and Him who sustains it.

[91:7] The soul and Him who created it.

[91:8] Then showed it what is evil and what is good.

[91:9] Successful is one who redeems it.

[91:10] Failing is one who neglects it.

[91:11] Thamoud's disbelief caused them to transgress.

[91:12] They followed the worst among them.

[91:13] GOD's messenger said to them, "This is GOD's camel; let her drink."

[91:14] They disbelieved him and slaughtered her. Their Lord then requited them for their sin and annihilated them.

[91:15] Yet, those who came after them remain heedless.


92- The Night (Al-Layl)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[92:1] By the night as it covers.

[92:2] The day as it reveals.

[92:3] And Him who created the male and the female.

[92:4] Your works are of various kinds.

[92:5] As for him who gives to charity and maintains righteousness.

[92:6] And upholds the scripture.

[92:7] We will direct him towards happiness.

[92:8] But he who is stingy, though he is rich.

[92:9] And disbelieves in the scripture.

[92:10] We will direct him towards misery.

[92:11] His money cannot help him when he falls.

[92:12] We provide the guidance.

[92:13] We control the Hereafter, as well as this life.

[92:14] I have warned you about the blazing Hellfire.

[92:15] None burns therein except the wicked.

[92:16] Who disbelieves and turns away.

[92:17] Avoiding it will be the righteous.

[92:18] Who gives from his money to charity.

[92:19] Seeking nothing in return.

[92:20] Seeking only his Lord, the Most High.

[92:21] He will certainly attain salvation.


93- The Forenoon (Al-Duhaa)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[93:1] By the forenoon.

[93:2] By the night as it falls.

[93:3] Your Lord never abandoned you, nor did He forget.

[93:4] The Hereafter is far better for you than this first (life).

[93:5] And your Lord will give you enough; you will be pleased.

[93:6] Did He not find you orphaned and He gave you a home?

[93:7] He found you astray, and guided you.

[93:8] He found you poor, and made you rich.

[93:9] Therefore, you shall not forsake the orphan.

[93:10] Nor shall you reprimand the beggar.

[93:11] You shall proclaim the blessing your Lord has bestowed upon you.


94- Cooling the Temper (Al-Sharrhh)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[94:1] Did we not cool your temper?

[94:2] And we unloaded your load (of sins).

[94:3] One that burdened your back.

[94:4] We exalted you to an honorable position.

[94:5] With pain there is gain.

[94:6] Indeed, with pain there is gain.

[94:7] Whenever possible you shall strive.

[94:8] Seeking only your Lord.


95- The Fig (Al-Teen)


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[95:1] By the fig and the olive.

[95:2] Mount Sinai.

[95:3] And this honored town (Mecca).

[95:4] We created man in the best design.

[95:5] Then turned him into the lowliest of the lowly.

[95:6] Except those who believe and lead a righteous life; they receive a reward that is well deserved.

[95:7] Why do you still reject the faith?

[95:8] Is GOD not the Most Wise, of all the wise ones?
