۞ When there happeneth the Event. 1 no soul will deny its coming. 2 It will abase some and exalt others. 3 When the earth is shaken violently, 4 and the mountains will crumble 5 and become like scattered dust particles, 6 And you will become divided into three categories. 7 Then the companions of the right - what are the companions of the right? 8 And (then) those on the left hand; what of those on the left hand? 9 And the forerunners, the forerunners - 10 they who were [always] drawn close unto God! 11 In gardens of bliss [will they dwell] 12 (a throng of the ancients 13 And a few from the later generations. 14 [They will be seated] on gold-encrusted thrones of happiness, 15 Reclining on them, facing one another. 16 Immortal youths will serve them 17 with goblets, jugs and cups of crystal clear wine 18 Their heads shall not ache with it, nor shall they lose their senses. 19 And fruits that they may like. 20 And the flesh of fowls, any that they may desire. 21 and wide-eyed houris 22 The likenesses of pearls well-protected, 23 A reward for what they used to do. 24 They shall not hear therein vain or sinful discourse, 25 Only the saying, "Peace! Peace". 26 And the companions of the right hand; how happy are the companions of the right hand! 27 Among thornless lote-trees 28 and acacias flower-clad, 29 And spreading shade, 30 And water gushing, 31 And fruit in abundance. 32 Whose season is not limited, nor (supply) forbidden, 33 They shall be on upraised couches, 34 We have created (their Companions) of special creation. 35 and made them virgins, 36 loving companions, matching in age, 37 for those on the Right, 38
