Section   1
1 when the Sun’s folded-up
2 and when the Stars fall
3 when the Mountains moved away
4 when the pregnant she-Camels are abandoned
5 when the wild animals are herded together
6 when the Seas overflow
7 when the Souls are united
8 when the Female infant buried alive is questioned
9 for what crime was she killed?
10 when the pages are laid opened
11 when the Sky’s covering is removed
12 when the Hell Fire lit up
13 and Paradise brought near
14 every Soul shall know what it’s in for
15 so I swear by the Planets that recede
16 or Planets that Orbit and then hide
17 and the departing Night
18 and the brightness of Dawn
19 Lo! these are the words of the most honored Messenger
20 with power bestowed by the Lord of the Throne
21 authorised and trust worthy
22 your companion is not mad
23 without doubt he saw Him on the clear horizon
24 and wouldn’t hide knowledge of the unseen
25 nor is this words of a Devil
26 than where do you go?
27 for this is nothing else than a reminder to the Worlds
28 that whoever wills can walk the straight path
29 but won’t unless it’s will of Allah – Lord of the Worlds
