In the name of God, the Lord of Mercy, the Giver of Mercy

People, be mindful of your Lord,
for the earthquake of the Last Hour will be a mighty thing:
on the Day you see it, every nursing mother will think no more of her baby,
every pregnant female will miscarry,
you will think people are drunk when they are not,
so severe will be God's torment.
Yet still there are some who, with no knowledge, argue about God,
who follow every devilish rebel
fated to lead astray those who take his side
and guide them to the suffering of the blazing flame.
(22:1-5) translated by M.A.S. Abdel Haleem
