How awesome the sudden calamity! (2)
وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا الْقَارِعَةُ

وَتَكُونُ الْجِبَالُ كَالْعِهْنِ الْمَنْفُوشِ

And then, he whose weight [of good deeds] is heavy in the balance (6)
فَهُوَ فِي عِيشَةٍ رَاضِيَةٍ

وَأَمَّا مَنْ خَفَّتْ مَوَازِينُهُ

فَأُمُّهُ هَاوِيَةٌ
shall be engulfed by an abyss. (9)
وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا هِيَهْ
And what could make thee conceive what that [abyss] will be? (10)
