96 verses, revealed in Mecca after T H (Taa Haa) before The Poets (Alshu'araa')
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ When there happeneth the Event. 1 There is no denying that it will befall - 2 some shall be abased and others exalted. 3 When the earth is shaken 4 And the mountains will be powdered to dust. 5 so that they become as scattered dust 6 You shall then become three groups. 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 Companions of the Left, what are the Companions of the Left? 9 And the foremost are the foremost, 10 Who will be honoured 11 in the Gardens of Bliss. 12 A numerous company from among the first, 13 And a few of those of later time. 14 On couches in wrought with gold. 15 reclining on them, arrayed face to face; 16 They will be served by immortal boys, 17 with goblets, jugs and cups of crystal clear wine 18 No headache will they have therefrom, nor will they be intoxicated - 19 And fruit; that they may choose. 20 and any flesh of fowl that they desire. 21 And [for them are] fair women with large, [beautiful] eyes, 22 Like pearls safely hidden. 23 A reward for what they used to do. 24 Not frivolity will they hear therein, nor any taint of ill,- 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, too, will find themselves] amidst fruit laden lote-trees, 28 And [banana] trees layered [with fruit] 29 And extended shade, 30 And in perpetually flowing water. 31 and fruit abounding, 32 Neither limited [to season] nor forbidden, 33 And maidens incomparable. 34 and their spouses We shall have brought them into being afresh, 35 And made them virgins, 36 intensely loving and of matching age. 37 For the sake of the companions of the right hand. 38
