The Calamity (Al-Qâri'ah)

In the name of Allah, Gracious, Merciful.

1The noise and clamor:

2What is the noise and clamor?

3And what will explain to you what the noise and clamor is?

4A day whereon men will be like moths scattered about.

5And the mountains will be like carded wool.

6Then he whose balance will be heavy.

7Will be in a life of good pleasure and satisfaction.1

8But he whose balance will be light

9Will have his home in a pit.

10And what will explain to you what this is?

11A fire blazing fiercely!

Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim


2Mal qariatu

3Wa ma adraka ma lqariatu

4Yauma yakunun nasu kal farasyi lmabsusi

5Wa takunu ljibalu kalihni lmanfusy

6Fa amma man saqulat mawazinuhu

7Fahuwa fiisyatir radhiyatin

8Wa amma man khaffat mawazinuh

9Fa ummuhu hawiyatu

10Wa ma adraka mahiyaha

11Narun hamiyatu

1. Islam teaches salvation by merits and this verse proves it. Where ever there is merits, of course there is demerit, and the next verse confirms that too. Now, if salvation is by merits and demerits, then, where does faith in Allah leave anyone? The Bible says:

“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his unique Son so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but have eternal life.”

Salvation is by grace. It is not earned, but once given, the receiver is given grace to maintain his relationship with God. Philippians 2:12 reads:

“And so, my dear friends, just as you have always obeyed, not only when I was with you but even more now that I am absent, continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling.”
