The Qur'an (Palmer)/Qaria
The Chapter of the Smiting.
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.
And who shall make thee know what it is ? — a burning fire!
