Surah Al Qariah (Arabic: سورة القارعة‎) is the 101st chapter (sura) of the Quran with 11 verses. This chapter takes its name from its first word “qariah“,[1] referring to the Quranic view of the end time and eschatology. “Qariah” has been translated to calamity, striking, catastrophe, clatterer, etc.

According to Ibn Kathir, a traditional exegete, Al Qariah is one of the names of the Day of Judgement, like Al-Haaqqa, At-Tammah, As-Sakhkhah and others.[3] After a picturesque depiction of judgement day in first 5 ayaat,[4] next 4 ayat describe that Allah’s Court will be established and the people will be called upon to account for their deeds. The people whose good deeds will be heavier, will be blessed with bliss and happiness, and the people whose good deeds will be lighter, will be cast into the burning fire of hell.[5] The last 2 ayaat describe Háwíyah[6] in similar emphatic[7][8] way as Al Qariah was emphasized[9][10] in the beginning.
