The Inevitable (Al-Waaqe'ah)
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 the inevitable event comes, (1) There is no belying its coming to pass-- (2) some shall be abased and others exalted. (3) When the earth is violently shaken (4) and the mountains crumbled, (5) becoming scattered dust, (6) you shall be divided into three parties, (7) So those on the right how (fortunate) are those on the right! (8) And the companions of the left - what are the companions of the left? (9) The third to the fore shall be the foremost. (10) These will be those Nearest to Allah: (11) In the Gardens of delight (Paradise). (12) A multitude from the ancients. (13) and a lesser number from the later generations. (14) [They will be seated] on gold-encrusted thrones of happiness, (15) Reclining thereon, face to face. (16) There will circulate among them young boys made eternal (17) with goblets and ewers and a cup filled with a drink drawn from a running spring, (18) Wherefrom they get no aching of the head nor any madness, (19) And such fruits as they fancy, (20) And the flesh of fowl such as they desire. (21) And pure, beautiful ones, (22) Like unto hidden pearls, (23) A reward for what they used to do. (24) They will not hear any useless speech in it, or any sin. (25) Nought but the saying: peace! peace! (26) As for those of the right hand -- how (happy) those of the right hand -- (27) [They, too, will find themselves] amidst fruit laden lote-trees, (28) Bananatrees, piled (29) and extended shade, (30) And in perpetually flowing water. (31) and fruits abounding (32) never-ending and unrestricted, (33) And raised couches. (34) We have formed them in a distinctive fashion, (35) and made them virgins, (36) Devoted [to their husbands] and of equal age, (37) For the sake of the companions of the right hand. (38)
