Surah At-Takwir (The Overthrowing)


Surah At-Takwir (The Overthrowing) - Aya count 29

إِذَا ٱلشَّمۡسُ كُوِّرَتۡ ﴿١﴾

When the sun is wrapped up [in darkness]

وَإِذَا ٱلنُّجُومُ ٱنكَدَرَتۡ ﴿٢﴾

And when the stars fall, dispersing,

وَإِذَا ٱلۡجِبَالُ سُیِّرَتۡ ﴿٣﴾

And when the mountains are removed

وَإِذَا ٱلۡعِشَارُ عُطِّلَتۡ ﴿٤﴾

And when full-term she-camels are neglected

وَإِذَا ٱلۡوُحُوشُ حُشِرَتۡ ﴿٥﴾

And when the wild beasts are gathered

وَإِذَا ٱلۡبِحَارُ سُجِّرَتۡ ﴿٦﴾

And when the seas are filled with flame

وَإِذَا ٱلنُّفُوسُ زُوِّجَتۡ ﴿٧﴾

And when the souls are paired

وَإِذَا ٱلۡمَوۡءُۥدَةُ سُىِٕلَتۡ ﴿٨﴾

And when the girl [who was] buried alive is asked

بِأَیِّ ذَنۢبࣲ قُتِلَتۡ ﴿٩﴾

For what sin she was killed

وَإِذَا ٱلصُّحُفُ نُشِرَتۡ ﴿١٠﴾

And when the pages are made public

وَإِذَا ٱلسَّمَاۤءُ كُشِطَتۡ ﴿١١﴾

And when the sky is stripped away

وَإِذَا ٱلۡجَحِیمُ سُعِّرَتۡ ﴿١٢﴾

And when Hellfire is set ablaze

وَإِذَا ٱلۡجَنَّةُ أُزۡلِفَتۡ ﴿١٣﴾

And when Paradise is brought near,

عَلِمَتۡ نَفۡسࣱ مَّاۤ أَحۡضَرَتۡ ﴿١٤﴾

A soul will [then] know what it has brought [with it].

فَلَاۤ أُقۡسِمُ بِٱلۡخُنَّسِ ﴿١٥﴾

So I swear by the retreating stars -

ٱلۡجَوَارِ ٱلۡكُنَّسِ ﴿١٦﴾

Those that run [their courses] and disappear -

وَٱلَّیۡلِ إِذَا عَسۡعَسَ ﴿١٧﴾

And by the night as it closes in

وَٱلصُّبۡحِ إِذَا تَنَفَّسَ ﴿١٨﴾

And by the dawn when it breathes

إِنَّهُۥ لَقَوۡلُ رَسُولࣲ كَرِیمࣲ ﴿١٩﴾

[That] indeed, the Qur'an is a word [conveyed by] a noble messenger

ذِی قُوَّةٍ عِندَ ذِی ٱلۡعَرۡشِ مَكِینࣲ ﴿٢٠﴾

[Who is] possessed of power and with the Owner of the Throne, secure [in position],

مُّطَاعࣲ ثَمَّ أَمِینࣲ ﴿٢١﴾

Obeyed there [in the heavens] and trustworthy.

وَمَا صَاحِبُكُم بِمَجۡنُونࣲ ﴿٢٢﴾

And your companion is not [at all] mad.

وَلَقَدۡ رَءَاهُ بِٱلۡأُفُقِ ٱلۡمُبِینِ ﴿٢٣﴾

And he has already seen Gabriel in the clear horizon.

وَمَا هُوَ عَلَى ٱلۡغَیۡبِ بِضَنِینࣲ ﴿٢٤﴾

And Muhammad is not a withholder of [knowledge of] the unseen.

وَمَا هُوَ بِقَوۡلِ شَیۡطَـٰنࣲ رَّجِیمࣲ ﴿٢٥﴾

And the Qur'an is not the word of a devil, expelled [from the heavens].

فَأَیۡنَ تَذۡهَبُونَ ﴿٢٦﴾

So where are you going?

إِنۡ هُوَ إِلَّا ذِكۡرࣱ لِّلۡعَـٰلَمِینَ ﴿٢٧﴾

It is not except a reminder to the worlds

لِمَن شَاۤءَ مِنكُمۡ أَن یَسۡتَقِیمَ ﴿٢٨﴾

For whoever wills among you to take a right course.

وَمَا تَشَاۤءُونَ إِلَّاۤ أَن یَشَاۤءَ ٱللَّهُ رَبُّ ٱلۡعَـٰلَمِینَ ﴿٢٩﴾

And you do not will except that Allah wills - Lord of the worlds.
