In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
۞ When there happeneth the Event. 1 There is about its happening no lie. 2 some shall be abased and others exalted. 3 When the earth is shaken with a shaking [severe,] 4 And the mountains shall be made to crumble with (an awful) crumbling, 5 So that they become dust seattered. 6 [on that Day,] then, shall you be [divided into] three kinds. 7 Those of the right hand -- how (happy) will be those of the right hand! 8 And those on the left how (wretched) are those on the left! 9 and the Outstrippers: the Outstrippers 10 those are they brought nigh the Throne, 11 In the Gardens of Pleasure, 12 A multitude of those (foremost) will be from the first generations (who embraced Islam). 13 and how few of the later folk) 14 On couches in wrought with gold. 15 Reclining on them, facing each other. 16 immortal youths going round about them 17 Carrying bowls and pitchers and cups filled with wine flowing before them. 18 neither causing headaches, nor intoxication; 19 And with fruit from that which they choose. 20 And the flesh of fowls that they desire. 21 And wide eyed houris 22 The likenesses of pearls well-protected, 23 [And this will be] a reward for what they did [in life]. 24 No empty talk will they hear there, nor any call to sin, 25 All talk will be sound and upright. 26 As for the people of the right hand, how happy they will be! 27 [They, too, will find themselves] amidst fruit laden lote-trees, 28 And banana-trees (with fruits), one above another. 29 And shade extended 30 And water everflowing. 31 and fruit abounding, 32 Neither intercepted nor forbidden, 33 on raised couches. 34 and the noble maidens 35 And made them virginal, 36 Loving, equals in age, 37 for the Companions of the Right 38
