Amatul Rahman Omar - Sura: 101. Al-Qari'ah - The Calamity

  1. The Disastrous Rattling (of this life as seen in warfare is sure to visit the world).

  2. How very terrible is the Disastrous Rattling!

  3. What should make you know how very severe and destructive the Disastrous Rattling is!

  4. On that day people shall be (in great confusion and distress) like moths scattered,

  5. And the mountains shall look like carded wool.

  6. Now as for the person whose scales (of virtues) are heavy (and good deeds are preponderant),

  7. He shall have a pleasant life.

  8. But as for the person whose scales (of good deeds) are light (and of no account),

  9. The abyss (- Gehenna) shall then be a (nursing) mother to him (till the souls are completely cleansed of the taint of sin and they are reborn).

  10. Ah! what should make you know what that (abyss) is!

  11. It is a blazing Fire (for burning out all the dross that people collect by leading a sinful life in this world).
