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 Compassionate, the Merciful
۞ When the inevitable event comes, (1) There is no denying that it will befall - (2) abasing, exalting, (3) When the earth will tremble, shivering. (4) And the mountains will be crushed, blown to bits. (5) So that they shall be as scattered dust. (6) And ye will be three kinds: (7) The people of the right hand - those whose books of records will be placed in their right hands. How happy they will be! (8) The people of the left hand - those whose books of records will be placed in their left hands. How miserable they will be! (9) And the forerunners, the forerunners - (10) Those are the ones brought near [to Allah] (11) They will dwell in the Gardens of Bliss: (12) A numerous company from among the first, (13) and a few from later times. (14) Seated on couches wrought in gold and encrusted with precious stones, (15) Reclining on them, facing each other. (16) they will be waited on by ageless youths (17) With cups, and jugs, and a glass from the flowing wine, (18) Wherefrom they will get neither any aching of the head, nor any intoxication. (19) And with fruit from that which they choose. (20) And flesh of fowls that they desire. (21) And [for them are] fair women with large, [beautiful] eyes, (22) like pearls preserved in their shells, (23) A reward for what they used to do. (24) They will not hear therein any vain or sinful talk, (25) All talk will be sound and upright. (26) As for the People on the Right, how fortunate shall be the people on the Right! (27) Amid thornless lote-trees, (28) and serried acacias, (29) And a shade ever-spread. (30) and flowing water (31) and fruits abounding (32) and abundant fruits, (33) on raised couches. (34) and the noble maidens (35) And made them virgins, (36) chaste, loving companions of the same age (37) For the fellows on the right hand. (38)
