The Earthquake

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful:

When earth is shaken with its [final] quake,

and the earth brings forth its burdens,

and man says, ‘What is wrong with it?’

On that day it shall relate its chronicles,

for its Lord will have inspired it.

On that day mankind shall issue forth in separate groups to be shown their deeds.

So whoever does an atom’s weight of good shall see it,

and whoever does an atom’s weight of evil shall see it.

Occasion of Revelation of the Last Two Ayat

(And whoso doeth good an atom's weight will see it then, and whoso doeth ill an atom’s weight will see it then) [99:7-8].

Said Muqatil: "These two verses were revealed about two men. One of them deemed it unworthy to give beggars one date, a small piece of bread or one walnut, saying to himself: ‘Such things are nothing. We only get rewarded when we give away something that we love’. The other man used to belittle minor sins such as small lies, backbiting and looking at that which is unlawful, saying to himself: ‘No onus is on me because of engaging in this, for Allah{SWT} threatens with hellfire only those who commit enormities’. And so Allah{SWT}, exalted is He, revealed these two verses, encouraging people to perform even small acts of goodness, for they add up in the final run, and cautioning them against even small sins, for they add up in the final run (And whoso doeth good an atom’s weight will see it then, and whoso doeth ill an atom’s weight will see it then)”.
