The Earthquake...

099.001 إِذَا زُلْزِلَتِ الأرْضُ زِلْزَالَهَا
099.001 When the earth is shaken to her (utmost) convulsion,

099.002 وَأَخْرَجَتِ الأرْضُ أَثْقَالَهَا
099.002 And the earth throws up her burdens (from within),

099.003 وَقَالَ الإنْسَانُ مَا لَهَا
099.003 And man cries (distressed): 'What is the matter with her?'-

099.004 يَوْمَئِذٍ تُحَدِّثُ أَخْبَارَهَا
099.004 On that Day will she declare her tidings:

099.005 بِأَنَّ رَبَّكَ أَوْحَى لَهَا
099.005 For that thy Lord will have given her inspiration.

099.006 يَوْمَئِذٍ يَصْدُرُ النَّاسُ أَشْتَاتًا لِيُرَوْا أَعْمَالَهُمْ
099.006 On that Day will men proceed in companies sorted out, to be shown the deeds that they (had done).

099.007 فَمَنْ يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ خَيْرًا يَرَهُ
099.007 Then shall anyone who has done an atom's weight of good, see it!

099.008 وَمَنْ يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ شَرًّا يَرَهُ
099.008 And anyone who has done an atom's weight of evil, shall see it.

Al-Qur'an, 099.001-008 (Az-Zalzala [The Earthquake])
