Al-Adiyat The Holy Qur'an
101. Al-Qaria (The Calamity) , translated by Abdullah Yusuf Ali
At-Takathur
1934.



In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

1 The (Day) of Noise and Clamour:

2 What is the (Day) of Noise and Clamour?

3 And what will explain to thee what the (Day) of Noise and Clamour is?

4 (It is) a Day whereon men will be like moths scattered about,

5 And the mountains will be like carded wool.

6 Then, he whose balance (of good deeds) will be (found) heavy,

7 Will be in a life of good pleasure and satisfaction.

8 But he whose balance (of good deeds) will be (found) light,-

9 Will have his home in a (bottomless) Pit.

10 And what will explain to thee what this is?

11 (It is) a Fire Blazing fiercely!
