101. The Calamity (Al-Qari'ah)[edit]

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

1 The calamity!

2 What is the calamity?

3 And what will make thee know how terrible is the calamity?

4 The day wherein men will be as scattered moths,

5 And the mountains will be as carded wool.

6 Then as for him whose measure (of good deeds) is heavy,

7 He will live a pleasant life.

8 And as for him whose measure (of good deeds) is light,

9 The abyss is a mother to him.

10 And what will make thee know what that is?

11 A burning Fire.
