Bismillah arak maan nira heem, Alhamdhulillahi Rabil Alamin; arak maan nira heem

Al Qaari'ah

Mal - Qaari'ah?

Wa maa adraaka mal-Qaari'ah?

Yaama yakuunun - naasu kal - faraashil mabsus,

Wa takuunul - jibaalu kal - 'ihnil - maanfush

Fa - ammaa man - saqulat mawaaziinuhuu

Fa - Huwa fii lishatir - raaziyah

Wa ammaa man khafat mawaaziinnuhuu

Fa - ummuhuu Haawiyah

Wa maa adraka ma hiyah?

Naarun Haamiyah!


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

The day of Calamity

What is the day of Calamity?

What will convey to you, what the Calamity is!

A day where in Mankind will be as thickly - scattered moths

And the mountains will become as carded wool

Then as for him whose scales are heavy (with good deeds)

He will live a pleasant life

But as for him whose scales are light

Lost, deprived and hungry one will be his mother

And what will convey to you what she is?

Raging Fire!

This Makkan Surah reveals a glimpse of the Day of Judgement, describing what the landscape will become in to and how every deed will be weighed in just balance and its consequences
