Arabic Word Game For Memorising Surah Zalzalah - The Earthquake

Monday, 24 September 2012

In the name of God, Compassionate, Merciful بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم

"So whoever does an atom's weight of good will see it."
Qur'an, Surah Zalzalah, verse 7 of 8

I Did It, Alhamdulillah

It took me 3 hours in total to completely memorise the Qur'an chapter entitled The Earthquake, Surah Zalzalah, also known as Zilzal. I'm currently working on the grammar and English translation insha-Allah.

Surah Zalzalah is a 'ground breaking' chapter, literally. It shakes the views we cling on to about being brought back to life and hiding our sins. Every good and bad action will be exposed, even if it's weight is equal to that of an atom. Imagine!

With just under 30 unique Arabic words, Surah Zalzalah is only 8 verses long and repeats several words - shaking, quaking, earth. Its core theme is Judgement Day. How the earth ends and how people will react are the key questions that Allah answers in resounding explanations.

I have listed every word from Surah Zalzalah in Arabic text alongside its transliteration and translation for you to match up and memorise.

Print Out & Match The Cards

If you want to teach your children or use a more hands-on aid you could print out the entire word list. You can choose whether to print them out as onto A4 sheets as large cards (Avery flash cards) or as a list.

Print onto coloured card, colour them, match them up or pin onto a display for others to read.

Surah Zalzalah With Translation

I often get asked for the Arabic texts to my Qur'an studies so here it is:
- إِذَا زُلْزِلَتِ الاْرْضُ زِلْزَالَهَا
- وَأَخْرَجَتِ الارْضُ أَثْقَالَهَا
- وَقَالَ الإِنسَـنُ مَا لَهَا
- يَوْمَئِذٍ تُحَدّثُ أَخْبَارَهَا
- بِأَنَّ رَبَّكَ أَوْحَى لَهَا
- يَوْمَئِذٍ يَصْدُرُ النَّاسُ أَشْتَاتاً لّيُرَوْاْ أَعْمَـلَهُمْ
- فَمَن يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ خَيْراً يَرَهُ
- وَمَن يَعْـمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ شَرّاً يَرَهُ

For a Tafsir read Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan's notes on Surah Zalzalah (download pdf in colour) or listen to this 2-part lecture. It's very good, ma-sha-Allah.
