سورة الزلزلةWhen the earth is shaken to her (utmost) convulsion, And the earth throws up her burdens (from within), And man cries (distressed): 'What is the matter with her?'-, On that Day will she declare her tidings:For that thy Lord will have given her inspiration. On that Day will men proceed in companies sorted out, to be shown the deeds that they (had done). Then shall anyone who has done an atom's weight of good, see it! And anyone who has done an atom's weight of evil, shall see it. 

Qura'n 99 (1-8) ഭൂലോകം ഭീകരമായി വിറപ്പിക്കപ്പെടുമ്പോള്‍,1 ഭൂമി അതിനുള്ളിലെ ഭാരങ്ങള്‍ പുറംതള്ളുമ്പോള്‍,2 അതിനെന്തു പറ്റിപ്പോയി! എന്ന് മനുഷ്യന്‍ വിലപിക്കുമ്പോള്‍,3 അന്നാളില്‍ അത്, അതിന്റെ (പൂര്‍വ)കഥകള്‍ വിവരിക്കുന്നതാകുന്നു.4എന്തുകൊണ്ടെന്നാല്‍ നിന്റെ നാഥന്‍ അതിനോട് (അങ്ങനെ ചെയ്യണമെന്ന്) കല്‍പിച്ചിരിക്കും. അന്നാളില്‍ ജനം വിവിധ അവസ്ഥകളിലായി പുറപ്പെട്ടുവരുന്നതാകുന്നു5 -അവരുടെ കര്‍മങ്ങള്‍ കാണുന്നതിനു വേണ്ടി.6 അണുഅളവ് നന്മ ചെയ്തിട്ടുള്ളവന്‍ അതവിടെ കാണും. അണു അളവ് തിന്മ ചെയ്തിട്ടുള്ളവന്‍ അതും കാണും.7
