Fazlollah Nikayin, The Quran; The First Poetic Translation (2000)

Sura 101
The Smiter
(Al-Qaari'a)

In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

1. The Smiter!

2. What is the Smiter?

3. Would that you recognized the Smiter!

4. A Day it is when men shall be as moths,
Dispersed by wind,

5. And mountains shall be coloured tufts
Of carded wool;

6. Then he whose scales are heavy

7. Shall dwell in Bliss,

8. And he whose scales are light,

9. His home is the Abyss.

10. And you know not its nature;

11. It's of the blazing Fire!
