96 verses, revealed in Mecca after T H (Taa Haa) before The Poets (Alshu'araa')
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ When the great event comes to pass, (1) Which is bound to happen undoubtedly -- (2) It will abase some and exalt others. (3) When the earth is shaken with convulsion (4) And the mountains will be powdered to dust. (5) Turned to dust, floating in the air, (6) And you become [of] three kinds: (7) So those on the Right Hand (i.e. those who will be given their Records in their right hands), Who will be those on the Right Hand? (As a respect for them, because they will enter Paradise). (8) And there shall be such as will have lost themselves in evil: oh, how [unhappy] will be they who have lost themselves in evil! (9) But the foremost shall be [they who in life were] the foremost [in faith and good works]: (10) These are they who are drawn nigh (to Allah), (11) In the Gardens of delight (Paradise). (12) Many of them will be from the ancient people (13) and how few of the later folk) (14) upon close-wrought couches (15) Reclining thereon facing each other. (16) Round about them shall go youths never altering in age, (17) With goblets and ewers and a cup of pure drink; (18) (no brows throbbing, no intoxication) (19) And with fruit from that which they choose. (20) And the flesh of fowl such as they desire. (21) And (there will be) Companions with beautiful, big, and lustrous eyes,- (22) like the pearls in their shells: (23) As recompense for all they had done. (24) Therein they hear no vain or sinful discourse. (25) Only a saying: "Peace, peace." (26) The Companions of the Right (27) (will be) among thornless Lote trees. (28) and acacias flower-clad, (29) And a shade ever-spread. (30) And water everflowing. (31) And fruit in abundance. (32) That will neither finish, nor ever be stopped. (33) They shall be on upraised couches, (34) Verily, We have created them (maidens) of special creation. (35) And have made them virgins. (36) Loving companions matched in age, (37) All this will be for the People on the Right; (38)
