Surah 101: al-Qariah

bismillah ir rahman ir rahim

الْقَارِعَةُ 1

The Striking Calamity -

مَا الْقَارِعَةُ 2

What is the Striking Calamity?

وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا الْقَارِعَةُ 3

And what can make you know what is the Striking Calamity?

يَوْمَ يَكُونُ النَّاسُ كَالْفَرَاشِ الْمَبْثُوثِ 4

It is the Day when people will be like moths, dispersed,

وَتَكُونُ الْجِبَالُ كَالْعِهْنِ الْمَنفُوشِ 5

And the mountains will be like wool, fluffed up.

فَأَمَّا مَن ثَقُلَتْ مَوَازِينُهُ 6

Then as for one whose scales are heavy [with good deeds],

فَهُوَ فِي عِيشَةٍ رَّاضِيَةٍ 7

He will be in a pleasant life.

وَأَمَّا مَنْ خَفَّتْ مَوَازِينُهُ 8

But as for one whose scales are light,

فَأُمُّهُ هَاوِيَةٌ 9

His refuge will be an abyss.

وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا هِيَهْ 10

And what can make you know what that is?

نَارٌ حَامِيَةٌ 11

It is a Fire, intensely hot.
