In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ When the Event (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) befalls. 1 Which is bound to happen undoubtedly -- 2 abasing [some,] exalting [others]! 3 When the earth is shaken with convulsion 4 and the mountains are totally shattered and crumble to pieces 5 So that they become a scattered dust, 6 [on that Day,] then, shall you be [divided into] three kinds. 7 (First) those on the right hand; what of those on the right hand? 8 And those on the left how (wretched) are those on the left! 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 tranquility; 12 a good many of those of olden times, 13 and how few of the later folk) 14 They will recline on jewelled couches 15 Reclining on them, facing each other. 16 There will circulate among them young boys made eternal 17 Carrying bowls and pitchers and cups filled with wine flowing before them. 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 there shall be wide-eyed maidens, 22 beautiful as pearls hidden in their shells. 23 as reward for their deeds. 24 There they shall hear no idle talk, no cause of sin, 25 but only the saying: 'Peace, Peace' 26 The companions of the right - what are the companions of the right? 27 They will be in (the shade) of thornless lote 28 and clustered bananas, 29 with fruits piled up one on the other, 30 And water flowing constantly, 31 and an abundance of fruits, 32 Whose season is not limited, and their supply will not be cut off, 33 And exalted thrones. 34 Indeed We formed them (the houris and all believing women), 35 that We have created (for the people of the right hand). 36 loving companions, matching in age, 37 like of age for the Companions of the Right. 38
