The Qur'an (Palmer)/Qaria

The Chapter of the Smiting.

(ⅭⅠ. Mecca.)

In the name of the merciful and compassionate God.

The smiting !

What is the smiting ?

And what shall make thee know what the smiting is ?

The day when men shall be like scattered moths ; and the mountains shall be like flocks of carded wool !

5 And as for him whose balance is heavy, he shall be in a well-pleasing life.

But as for him whose balance is light, his dwelling shall be the pit of hell[1].

And who shall make thee know what it is ? — a burning fire!
