The Inevitable (Al-Waaqe'ah)
96 verses, revealed in Mecca after T H (Taa Haa) before The Poets (Alshu'araa')
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
۞ When the Event will come to pass (1) There is about its happening no lie. (2) The event will be abasing some, and exalting some. (3) When the earth is shaken violently, (4) And the mountains are broken down, crumbling (5) So they will become like fine dust, scattered in a shaft of light. (6) And you (all) will be in three kinds (i.e. separate groups). (7) Then (as to) the companions of the right hand; how happy are the companions of the right hand! (8) And (then) those on the left hand; what of those on the left hand? (9) And those who surpassed have indeed excelled. (10) Those are the ones brought near [to Allah] (11) In the Gardens of Pleasure, (12) A number of people from those of old, (13) and a lesser number from the later generations. (14) On couches in wrought with gold. (15) Reclining face to face. (16) There will circulate among them young boys made eternal (17) with goblets, and ewers, and cups filled with water from unsullied springs (18) Whereby there shall be neither headiness nor will they be inebriated. (19) Also, they will be served with the fruits of their choice (20) And the flesh of fowls that they desire. (21) And (there are) fair ones with wide, lovely eyes, (22) like unto pearls [still] hidden in their shells. (23) A Reward for the deeds of their past (life). (24) Not frivolity will they hear therein, nor any taint of ill,- (25) Except the word peace, peace. (26) And the fellows on the right hand; how be happy shall the fellows on the right hand be! (27) (will be) among thornless Lote trees. (28) and clustered bananas, (29) and spreading shade (30) and flowing water, (31) And fruit, abundant [and varied], (32) Unending, unforbidden, (33) And carpets raised. (34) Lo! We have created them a (new) creation (35) And have made them virgins. (36) intensely loving and of matching age. (37) For the Companions of the Right Hand. (38)
