At-Takathur, Al Qariah, Adiyat

Surah Adiyat with English translation.

The surah begins with the imagery of raiders on horseback, who come to take what is not theirs rightfully. The Qur'an gives a picture of greedy men that would be quite familiar to the Arab peoples of his day: that of the invading army in search of money. It can be understood even now that such a hoard is an ideal example of worldliness and shirk - in Islam, the great sins against God. The image is of people who are willing to hurt their fellow man over objects and lust.

The Qur'an continues, that mankind is evidence against himself of these sins. On the Last Day, "when that which is in the tombs is overthrown and that which is in the breasts in brought out," people will be judged accordingly by what their hearts intended in life. The Qur'an concludes this sura with the reminder that as men are fully aware of what they are doing and why, God is even more aware.

Surah Adiyat - Mishary Rashid Al-Afasy



Surah al- Qariah describes Judgment Day as the Day of Clamor, when men will be distracted and the landmarks of this world will be lost, but every deed will be weighed in a just balance, and find its real value and setting.

Balance of Justice [101:1-11] How will the senses of man stand the Noise and Clamor of the great Day of Account, whereon this life's old landmarks will vanish, and men will be helpless like scattered moths? Nay, but a Balance of Justice will weigh and appraise all Deeds; and those whose good will show substance and weight will achieve a Life of good pleasure and satisfaction, while those whose good will be light will find themselves, alas, in a blazing Pit of Punishment.
