99. Az-Zalzalah (The Earthquake)

Medinan, 8 verses

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

  1. When the earth is shaken by its earthquake,

  2. and the earth unloads its heavy loads,

  3. and the human being says: “What is the matter with it?”

  4. On that day it speaks out its stories,

  5. because your Lord revealed to it.

  6. On that day people come out in separate groups to be shown their works.

  7. And anyone who does a tiny bit of good sees it,

  8. and anyone who does a tiny bit of bad sees it.
