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 there happeneth the Event. 1 And there can be no denying of its befalling. 2 The event will be abasing some, and exalting some. 3 when the earth shall be rocked 4 and the mountains are shattered into [countless] shards, 5 and become like scattered dust particles, 6 And you (all) will be in three kinds (i.e. separate groups). 7 Then (as to) the companions of the right hand; how happy are the companions of the right hand! 8 Those on the Left -- how unlucky are those on the Left! 9 But the foremost shall be [they who in life were] the foremost [in faith and good works]: 10 Who will be honoured 11 In the Gardens of delight (Paradise). 12 Many of them will be from the ancient people 13 but only a few from the later generations. 14 Seated on couches wrought in gold and encrusted with precious stones, 15 reclining on them facing each other; 16 Round about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness), 17 with goblets and ewers, and a cup from a spring 18 (no brows throbbing, no intoxication) 19 with fruits of their own choice 20 And the flesh of fowls, any that they may desire. 21 and there shall be wide-eyed maidens, 22 Like unto Pearls well-guarded. 23 A reward for what they used to do. 24 They will hear no nonsense there or talk of sin, 25 only the saying 'Peace, Peace!' 26 As for the People on the Right, how fortunate shall be the people on the Right! 27 Among thorn-less lote-trees. 28 and flower-clad acacias, 29 And a shade ever-spread. 30 and waters gushing, 31 And fruit, abundant [and varied], 32 Neither limited [to season] nor forbidden, 33 And on couches or thrones, raised high. 34 Perfectly We formed them, perfect, 35 Then We have made them virgins, 36 chaste, loving companions of the same age 37 For the fellows on the right hand. 38
