Towards the Inner Vision of the Truth


"Light upon light. Allah guideth unto His light whom He will. And Allah speaketh to mankind in allegories, for Allah is Knower of all things." — Holy Qur'an 24:35


Holy Quran Verses from Pickthall's Translation

Surah 'Al-Qaari-'ah: The Calamity

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

101.001 The Calamity!
101.002 What is the Calamity?
101.003 Ah, what will convey unto thee what the Calamity is!
101.004 A day wherein mankind will be as thickly-scattered moths
101.005 And the mountains will become as carded wool.
101.006 Then, as for him whose scales are heavy (with good works),
101.007 He will live a pleasant life.
101.008 But as for him whose scales are light,
101.009 A bereft and Hungry One will be his mother,
101.010 Ah, what will convey unto thee what she is! -
101.011 Raging Fire.


Let us pray (Sura 20, Ayat 114) 'Ya Rabbi Zidni Ilma!' ('O Lord! Increase me in knowledge.') and seek spiritual help (ta'yid) to understand our great faith.
