In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
۞ When the forthcoming event does occur. (1) and there can be no denying its happening, (2) some shall be abased and others exalted. (3) when the earth shall be rocked (4) and the mountains crumbled (5) and will scatter abroad into fine dust. (6) [on that Day,] then, shall you be [divided into] three kinds. (7) The People on the Right: and how fortunate will be the People on the Right! (8) And those on the left how (wretched) are those on the left! (9) And the foremost are the foremost, (10) They shall be the nearest to God. (11) In the Gardens of Pleasure, (12) a host of the ancients (13) and how few of the later folk) (14) They will recline on jewelled couches (15) Reclining on them, facing each other. (16) Immortal youths will wait upon them (17) Cups and decanters, beakers full of sparkling wine, (18) Their heads shall not ache with it, nor shall they lose their senses. (19) And with fruits, any that they may select: (20) And with flesh of fowls from that which they desire. (21) And [for them are] fair women with large, [beautiful] eyes, (22) Like unto preserved pearls. (23) as reward for their deeds. (24) Therein they shall hear no idle talk, no cause of sin, (25) Nought but the saying: peace! peace! (26) The Companions of the Right (27) [They, too, will find themselves] amidst fruit laden lote-trees, (28) And plantains laden with fruit. (29) and extended shade, (30) By water flowing constantly, (31) And fruit, abundant [and varied], (32) and abundant fruits, (33) And raised couches. (34) and the noble maidens (35) And made them virgins, (36) Lovers, friends, (37) for the Companions of the Right (38)
