 Commentary on the Koran: Surah 81 “The Overthrowing”

Pickthall Translation with Bible Quotes from the English Standard Version unless otherwise noted.



Al-Takwir takes its name from verse 1.  It refers to the overthrow of the Sun system under the angelic order of the Fallen Host. Satan’s time is short and his world order of the working week of 6000 years is coming to a close. From the Bible texts Adam and Eve were created in 4004 BCE. The Garden of Eden was closed and the world placed under Satan’s rule thirty years later, when Adam was fully responsible, in 3974 BCE, for the First Jubilee. The 120th jubilee ends in 2027. Messiah will be sent early to cut this rule short or there will be no flesh saved alive (cf. Outline Timetable of the Age (No. 272)). 


The Sabbath rest of the Messiah lasts 1000 years after the First Resurrection for the Millennium.


The texts refer to the Satanic system of the Sun and mystery cults and their slaughter of children and infants generally at Mecca and in Syria under the Sun cults and the Baal and Easter systems in the Levant and in Babylon and the Middle East generally.


This is a warning to the Arabs and the Middle East generally. It will be reinforced again in these last days and the last of the Wars of Amalek foretold by Moses to occur in the last days and which are underway now in the Middle East (Exodus 17:14-16).  The Lord said to Moses “Write an account of this victory and read it to Joshua.  I want the Amalekites to be forgotten forever.” (15) Moses built an altar and named it “The Lord gives me victory” (16) Then Moses explained, “This is because I depended on the Lord, but in future generations, The Lord will have to fight the Amalekites again.”


The Arabs brought the wars of the end on themselves from 1948 through to 1967 and on now to the end of the wars and the coming of the Messiah to cut the time short and force the Vials of the Wrath of God on people who must repent to live into the Millennium (cf. Wars of the Last Days and the Vials of the Wrath of God (No. 141B)).


The Middle East was destroyed by the idolatrous Arabs in spite of being given the Koran and the Laws of God. They were told to obey the Food Laws (S 3:93) and corrupted them with so-called Halal. They ate camels inherited from the sacrifices at Mecca at the Ka’aba along with child slaughter and they ate every foul and unclean thing except pork.


Under the Romans, North Africa was the bread basket of the Mediterranean and with trees from the Nile to the Atlantic and Asia was still rich and productive and treed. It has been turned into an arid wilderness and has to be subdued and re-forested and stabilised again. That will not happen under the current rule.  The Gulf of Oman has been turned into the greatest dead zone in the oceans of the world due to the continual harvest of the sea animals, oysters and shellfish that maintain its oceans and clean its waters. All done in disobedience to the laws of God. These infidels both pseudo-Islam and pseudo-Christian have killed it as they are destroying the whole world.


The Surah has 29 verses which mark the general number of Judgment (cf. the paper Symbolism of Numbers (No. 007)).




81.1. When the sun is overthrown,

81.2. And when the stars fall,


The present age of Satan’s rule on this planet is coming to a close and that present order is to be torn down and removed to make way for the establishment of the millennial reign of Christ ruling with the elect who attain eternal life in the First Resurrection.


Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.


Isaiah 13:10 For the stars of the heavens and their constellations will not give their light; the sun will be dark at its rising, and the moon will not shed its light.


Joel 2:10 The earth quakes before them; the heavens tremble. The sun and the moon are darkened, and the stars withdraw their shining.


Joel 2:31 The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes.


81.3. And when the hills are moved,

81.4. And when the camels big with young are abandoned,

81.5. And when the wild beasts are herded together,

81.6. And when the seas rise,


The camels were eaten at the pagan festival of Eid and in spite of Surah 3:93 their consumption was kept by the Arabs from pagan customs and they will be left abandoned and the Arabs will face the wrath of God. Note also the rising seas are part of this end time crisis.


Luke 21:25-27 And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves, 26people fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world. For the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.


Revelation 6:14 The sky vanished like a scroll that is being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.

Isaiah 24:18-19 He who flees at the sound of the terror shall fall into the pit, and he who climbs out of the pit shall be caught in the snare. For the windows of heaven are opened, and the foundations of the earth tremble. 19The earth is utterly broken, the earth is split apart, the earth is violently shaken.


Revelation 16:18-21 And there were flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, and a great earthquake such as there had never been since man was on the earth, so great was that earthquake. 19The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell, and God remembered Babylon the great, to make her drain the cup of the wine of the fury of his wrath. 20And every island fled away, and no mountains were to be found. 21And great hailstones, about one hundred pounds each, fell from heaven on people; and they cursed God for the plague of the hail, because the plague was so severe.


Ezekiel 38:20 The fish of the sea and the birds of the heavens and the beasts of the field and all creeping things that creep on the ground, and all the people who are on the face of the earth, shall quake at my presence. And the mountains shall be thrown down, and the cliffs shall fall, and every wall shall tumble to the ground.


81.7. And when souls are reunited,

81.8. And when the girl-child that was buried alive is asked

81.9. For what sin she was slain,

81.10. And when the pages are laid open,

81.11. And when the sky is torn away,

81.12. And when hell is lighted,

81.13. And when the Garden is brought nigh,

81.14. (Then) every soul will know what it hath made ready.


Some of the pagan Arabs used to bury their female children alive when they were born, as they placed a lesser value on women as they were not as economically productive as compared to men, and they were easily captured by other tribes during their frequent squabbles. So girls were slain because they were females. So are females being slain in other societies around the world.


The time when humanity will face corrective judgement and re-education to lead them to repentance will also be a time for the greatest family reunions ever.

In Ayats 19 to 22 the terms messenger, mighty, established in the presence of the Lord of the Throne, are references to Gabriel who appeared to the Prophet with the message. Ayat 23 below states he was seen on a clear horizon. In Exodus 23:21 we are told to obey the voice of the angel, for he comes in the name of and by the authority of God.


Exodus 23:20-21 Behold, I send an angel before you to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared. 21Pay careful attention to him and obey his voice; do not rebel against him, for he will not pardon your transgression, for my name is in him.

Refer to 2Peter 1:20-21 in Commentary on the Koran: Surah 20 (No. Q020) at ayat 6


81.23. Surely he beheld Him on the clear horizon.

81.24. And he is not avid of the Unseen.

81.25. Nor is this the utterance of a devil worthy to be stoned.

81.26. Whither then go ye?

81.27. This is naught else than a reminder unto creation,


The Prophet saw the angel Gabriel on a clear horizon. The message was conveyed to the Prophet as the angel had received it. God reveals His secrets to His prophets as we know from Amos 3:7. The revelation is always truth because God is truth. All his words are true and righteous all together. Satan on the other hand is a liar that cannot be trusted. He deserves his punishment.

John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
