بِسۡمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
إِذَا ٱلشَّمۡسُ كُوِّرَتۡ1 1
When the sun will be folded up and become without ligh (Hasan Basri). (Also see Verse 75:9)
وَإِذَا ٱلۡجِبَالُ سُيِّرَتۡ3 3
And the mountains shall be made to move from their location (and fly like wool).
وَإِذَا ٱلۡعِشَارُ عُطِّلَتۡ4 4
And when the ten month preg-nant she-camel will be left unat-tended. (They are considered ex-tremely precious among the Arabs)
وَإِذَا ٱلسَّمَآءُ كُشِطَتۡ11 11
And when the heaven shall be stripped off and shall become open (so that things above it can be seen).
عَلِمَتۡ نَفۡسٞ مَّآ أَحۡضَرَتۡ14 14
Then every person will know what he has brought (of good and evil).
فَلَآ أُقۡسِمُ بِٱلۡخُنَّسِ15 15
So I swear by the stars that recede (i.e. disappear during the day and appear during the night).
إِنَّهُۥ لَقَوۡلُ رَسُولٖ كَرِيمٖ19 19
Indeed, this is the Word or rev-e-la-tions (brought by) an esteemed messenger [Jibrael ( ), from Allah to Prophet Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)].
ذِي قُوَّةٍ عِندَ ذِي ٱلۡعَرۡشِ مَكِينٖ20 20
He [Jibrael ( )] is powerful, and is highly honoured in the presence of the Owner of the Throne (i.e. Allah).
مُّطَاعٖ ثَمَّ أَمِينٖ21 21
He is obeyed (by the angels in the heaven) and is trustworthy (conveys the revelations exactly).
وَمَا صَاحِبُكُم بِمَجۡنُونٖ22 22
And (O mankind!) your com-panion (Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) whom you knew closely for forty years) is not a madman.
وَلَقَدۡ رَءَاهُ بِٱلۡأُفُقِ ٱلۡمُبِينِ23 23
And, indeed, he [Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)] saw him [Jibrael ( ) in his original form] in the clear horizon (this was at the dawn of the Prophethood. He also saw Jibrael ( ) in original form in Miraaj too).
وَمَا هُوَ عَلَى ٱلۡغَيۡبِ بِضَنِينٖ24 24
And he [Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)] does not withhold any knowledge of the unseen (given to him by Allah).
وَمَا هُوَ بِقَوۡلِ شَيۡطَٰنٖ رَّجِيمٖ25 25
And it (i.e. the Quran) is not the word of outcast Satan.
إِنۡ هُوَ إِلَّا ذِكۡرٞ لِّلۡعَٰلَمِينَ27 27
Indeed, it (i.e. the Quran) is a reminder for mankind and jinn.
لِمَن شَآءَ مِنكُمۡ أَن يَسۡتَقِيمَ28 28
(It is specially a reminder for) he who among you intends to follow the Right Path.
