[Qaria`h 101:1] The event that terrifies the hearts!

[Qaria`h 101:2] What is the event that terrifies the hearts?

[Qaria`h 101:3] And what have you understood, what the event that terrifies the hearts is!

[Qaria`h 101:4] The day when men will be like scattered moths.

[Qaria`h 101:5] And mountains will be like flying wool.

[Qaria`h 101:6] So for one whose scales prove heavy,

[Qaria`h 101:7] He is therefore in the desired bliss.

[Qaria`h 101:8] And for one whose scales prove light,

[Qaria`h 101:9] He is in the lap of one that abases.

[Qaria`h 101:10] And what have you understood, what the one that abases is!

[Qaria`h 101:11] A flaming fire!
