96 verses, revealed in Mecca after T H (Taa Haa) before The Poets (Alshu'araa')
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
۞ When the Event will come to pass (1) And there can be no denying of its befalling. (2) (Many) will it bring low; (many) will it exalt; (3) When the earth is shaken with a shock (4) And the mountains shall be crumbled to atoms, (5) so that they become as scattered dust (6) And you become [of] three kinds: (7) Thus, there shall be such as will have attained to what is right: oh, how [happy] will be they who have attained to what is right! (8) The people of the left hand - those whose books of records will be placed in their left hands. How miserable they will be! (9) The foremost ones (in faith and virtue) - the foremost ones in receiving their reward. (10) They shall be the nearest to God. (11) in the Gardens of Bliss. (12) A large group from the earlier generations. (13) And a few from the later generations. (14) On couches in wrought with gold. (15) reclining on them, arrayed face to face; (16) Round about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness), (17) carrying goblets and ewers and cups filled with the purest wine, (18) a drink by which their minds will not be clouded nor will it cause drunkenness; (19) And fruit that they prefer (20) and any flesh of fowl that they desire. (21) And wide eyed houris (22) Like unto Pearls well-guarded. (23) shall be their recompense for their deeds. (24) They will hear no nonsense there or talk of sin, (25) only the saying 'Peace, Peace!' (26) NOW AS FOR those who have attained to righteousness - what of those who have attained to righteousness? (27) They will live amid the thornless lot trees (28) And plantains laden with fruit. (29) and spreading shade (30) By water flowing constantly, (31) And fruit in plenty (32) Whose season is not limited, and their supply will not be cut off, (33) And couches raised up. (34) We have formed them in a distinctive fashion, (35) and made them virgins, (36) loving companions, matching in age, (37) For the fellows on the right hand. (38)
