Ayat of the Day: Allah is He Who is the Creator, the One Who brings into existence from nothingness (i.e. the Inventor), the Bestower of Form; (in short,) all Beautiful Names belong to Him alone. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Him, the Lord of Honour, the Most Wise. (al-Hashr, 59:24)

(Shrouding in darkness)
Sura : Makki by Tilawat : 81 by Reveal : 7 Ruku` : 1 Ayats : 29 Part No. : 30
In the Name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Ever-Merciful
1. When the sun will be folded up and extinguished,
2. And the stars will fall (from their galaxies),
3. And when the mountains, (after having changed into dust,) will be set in motion (into the atmosphere),
4. And when the she-camels heavy with young will be left neglected and discarded (i.e., no one will tend them),
5. And when (fear-stricken) wild beasts will be herded together,
6. And when (all) oceans and rivers will be made to rise and swell,
7. And when souls will be united (with their bodies),
8. And when the infant girl buried alive will be asked,
9. For what crime was she slain?
10. And when the records of deeds will be laid open,
11. And when the layers of heaven will be torn asunder and moved away from their places,
12. And when (the Fire of) Hell will be burnt ablaze,
13. And when Paradise will be brought up close,
14. Everyone will come to know what he has brought forth.
15. So I swear by (the heavenly spheres) which recede (after appearing),
16. Which revolve freely, (then) hide (after appearing),
17. And by the night when its darkness tapers off,
18. And by the morning when its light dawns,
19. Indeed, this (Qur’an) is the Word (communicated) by a glorious and most venerable Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him),
20. Who is mighty and strong (in calling to the truth, preaching the faith in Messengership and spiritual competence, and) is held in extreme reverence and veneration (and splendour and glory) in the presence of the Lord of the Throne,
21. Entitled to obligatory obedience (by all the worlds because obedience to him is obedience to Allah) and faithful to His trust (possesses Revelation and all divine secrets of the heavens and the earth).
22. And, (O people,) he who blesses you with his (holy) companionship (Muhammad [blessings and peace be upon him]) is not mad. (Whatever he communicates is the truth.)
23. And he has indeed seen (the absolute beauty of the Lord of the Throne) on the effulgent horizon (of the realm of Divinity).*
* This translation is based on the statements of the venerable ‘Abd Allah b. ‘Abbas, Anas b. Malik, ‘Ikrima, Abu Salama, al-Dahhak, Abu al-‘Aliya, Hasan, Ka‘b al-Ahbar, Sharik b. ‘Abd Allah and al-Sha‘bi and others, which are related by al-Bukhari, Muslim, al-Tirmidhi, Ibn Jarir, al-Baghawi and many other eminent hadith-scholars. Most exegetes have also accepted it.
24. And he (the glorious Messenger [blessings and peace be upon him]) is not at all miserly in (disclosing) the unseen. (The Lord of the Throne has not left for him any deficiency.)
25. Nor is that (Qur’an) the utterance of any accursed Satan.
26. Then, (O you doomed,) where are you going (disregarding such a valuable treasure)?
27. This (Qur’an) is but admonition (revealed) for all the worlds.
28. Every one of you who aspires to tread the straight path (can take guidance from this source spring).
29. And you can aspire only to what Allah intends, Who is the Sustainer of all the worlds.
