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 event befalleth - (1) there is no denying its coming (2) Abasing (one party), exalting (the other), (3) When the earth shall be shaken with a (severe) shaking, (4) and the mountains will crumble (5) and become a dust, scattered, (6) And ye are classes three. (7) The People on the Right: and how fortunate will be the People on the Right! (8) Then those of the left hand -- how (unhappy) will be those of the left hand! (9) But the foremost shall be [they who in life were] the foremost [in faith and good works]: (10) It is they who are the close ones. (11) In Gardens of Delight. (12) a good many of those of olden times, (13) and a lesser number from the later generations. (14) Seated on couches wrought in gold and encrusted with precious stones, (15) facing one another. (16) immortal youths shall go about them (17) With vessels, pitchers and a cup [of wine] from a flowing spring - (18) Wherefrom they will get neither any aching of the head, nor any intoxication. (19) And fruit of what they select (20) And the meat of fowl, from whatever they desire. (21) And [for them are] fair women with large, [beautiful] eyes, (22) like hidden pearls, (23) A recompense for that which they have been working. (24) Not frivolity will they hear therein, nor any taint of ill,- (25) except each other's greetings of, "Peace be with you". (26) Those on the Right, how fortunate are those on the Right! (27) Among thornless lote-trees (28) and serried acacias, (29) In shade long-extended, (30) And in perpetually flowing water. (31) and fruits in abundance, (32) unfailing and not forbidden. (33) And on couches or thrones, raised high. (34) We have formed them in a distinctive fashion, (35) and shall have made them virgins, (36) Loving, equals in age, (37) with those who have attained to righteousness: (38)
