Holy Quran Verses from Pickthall and Yusufali's Translation

Surah Zilzaal: The Earthquake

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Yusufali:    When the earth is shaken to her (utmost) convulsion,
Pickthall:   When Earth is shaken with her (final) earthquake
Yusufali:    And the earth throws up her burdens (from within),
Pickthall:   And Earth yieldeth up her burdens,
Yusufali:    And man cries (distressed): 'What is the matter with her?'-
Pickthall:   And man saith: What aileth her?
Yusufali:    On that Day will she declare her tidings:
Pickthall:   That day she will relate her chronicles,
Yusufali:    For that thy Lord will have given her inspiration.
Pickthall:   Because thy Lord inspireth her.
Yusufali:    On that Day will men proceed in companies sorted out, to be shown the deeds that they (had done).
Pickthall:   That day mankind will issue forth in scattered groups to be shown their deeds.
Yusufali:    Then shall anyone who has done an atom's weight of good, see it!
Pickthall:   And whoso doeth good an atom's weight will see it then,
Yusufali:    And anyone who has done an atom's weight of evil, shall see it.
Pickthall:   And whoso doeth ill an atom's weight will see it then.
