The Earthquake

Az-Zalzala


1
إِذَا زُلْزِلَتِ الْأَرْضُ زِلْزَالَهَا
When the earth is shaken with her (violent) shaking,

2
وَأَخْرَجَتِ الْأَرْضُ أَثْقَالَهَا
And the earth brings forth her burdens,

3
وَقَالَ الْإِنْسَانُ مَا لَهَا
And man says: What has befallen her?

4
يَوْمَئِذٍ تُحَدِّثُ أَخْبَارَهَا
On that day she shall tell her news,

5
بِأَنَّ رَبَّكَ أَوْحَىٰ لَهَا
Because your Lord had inspired her.

6
يَوْمَئِذٍ يَصْدُرُ النَّاسُ أَشْتَاتًا لِيُرَوْا أَعْمَالَهُمْ
On that day men shall come forth in sundry bodies that they may be shown their works.

7
فَمَنْ يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ خَيْرًا يَرَهُ
So. he who has done an atom's weight of good shall see it

8
وَمَنْ يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ شَرًّا يَرَهُ
And he who has done an atom's weight of evil shall see it.
