96 verses, revealed in Mecca after T H (Taa Haa) before The Poets (Alshu'araa')
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
۞ When the forthcoming event does occur. (1) (and none denies its descending) (2) It will bring low (some); (and others) it will exalt; (3) When the earth is shaken violently, (4) and the mountains will crumble (5) becoming scattered dust, (6) And ye will be three kinds: (7) Those on the right hand; how happy shall those on the right hand be! (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) And the Outstrippers, the Outstrippers (10) These will be those nearest to Allah. (11) in the Gardens of Delight (12) A throng of the ancients, (13) but only a few from the later generations. (14) Seated on couches wrought in gold and encrusted with precious stones, (15) reclining upon them, facing one another [in love]. (16) They will be served by immortal boys, (17) With goblets, (shining) beakers, and cups (filled) out of clear-flowing fountains: (18) Whereby there shall be neither headiness nor will they be inebriated. (19) And such fruits as they fancy, (20) Bird meats that they relish, (21) and fair maidens with large, lustrous eyes (22) like the pearls in their shells: (23) [And this will be] a reward for what they did [in life]. (24) Not frivolity will they hear therein, nor any taint of ill,- (25) Nought but the saying: peace! peace! (26) As for those of the right hand -- how (happy) those of the right hand -- (27) (They will be) among Lote-trees without thorns, (28) And banana-trees (with fruits), one above another. (29) and spreading shade (30) And in perpetually flowing water. (31) and fruit abounding, (32) never-ending and unforbidden. (33) And on Thrones (of Dignity), raised high. (34) We have formed them in a distinctive fashion, (35) And made them virgin - pure (and undefiled), - (36) Loving companions matched in age, (37) with those who have attained to righteousness: (38)
