1. إِذَا زُلْزِلَتِ الْأَرْضُ زِلْزَالَهَا
When the Earth is shaken to her (utmost) convulsion

2. وَأَخْرَجَتِ الْأَرْضُ أَثْقَالَهَا
And the Earth throws up her burden (from within)

3. وَقَالَ الْإِنسَانُ مَا لَهَا

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

5. بِأَنَّ رَبَّكَ أَوْحَىٰ لَهَا
For that thy Lord will have given her inspiration.

6. يَوْمَئِذٍ يَصْدُرُ النَّاسُ أَشْتَاتًا لِّيُرَوْا أَعْمَالَهُمْ
On that Day will men proceed in companies sorted out to be shown the Deeds that they (had done).

7. فَمَن يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ خَيْرًا يَرَهُ
Then shall anyone who has done an atom’s weight of good see it!

8. وَمَن يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ شَرًّا يَرَهُ
And anyone who has done an atom’s weight of evil shall see it.
