ٱلۡقَارِعَةُ ﴿١﴾

The Striking Calamity -

مَا ٱلۡقَارِعَةُ ﴿٢﴾

What is the Striking Calamity?

وَمَاۤ أَدۡرَىٰكَ مَا ٱلۡقَارِعَةُ ﴿٣﴾

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

یَوۡمَ یَكُونُ ٱلنَّاسُ كَٱلۡفَرَاشِ ٱلۡمَبۡثُوثِ ﴿٤﴾

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

وَتَكُونُ ٱلۡجِبَالُ كَٱلۡعِهۡنِ ٱلۡمَنفُوشِ ﴿٥﴾

And the mountains will be like wool, fluffed up.

فَأَمَّا مَن ثَقُلَتۡ مَوَ ٰ⁠زِینُهُۥ ﴿٦﴾

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

فَهُوَ فِی عِیشَةࣲ رَّاضِیَةࣲ ﴿٧﴾

He will be in a pleasant life.

وَأَمَّا مَنۡ خَفَّتۡ مَوَ ٰ⁠زِینُهُۥ ﴿٨﴾

But as for one whose scales are light,

فَأُمُّهُۥ هَاوِیَةࣱ ﴿٩﴾

His refuge will be an abyss.

وَمَاۤ أَدۡرَىٰكَ مَا هِیَهۡ ﴿١٠﴾

And what can make you know what that is?

نَارٌ حَامِیَةُۢ ﴿١١﴾

It is a Fire, intensely hot.
