In explaining this Ayah, Ibn Zayd recited the following Ayat,

إِذَا الشَّمْسُ كُوِّرَتْ

وَإِذَا النُّجُومُ انكَدَرَتْ

When the sun is wound round and its light is lost and is overthrown, and when the stars fall. (81;1,2)

It has been reported from Ibn Mas`ud that he recited the Ayah as,

وَجُمِعَ بَيْنَ الشَّمْسُ وَالْقَمَرُ

and the sun and the moon will be joined between each other.

Allah said,

يَقُولُ الاِْنسَانُ يَوْمَيِذٍ أَيْنَ الْمَفَرُّ
