Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ When the forthcoming event does occur. 1 There is no denying that it will befall - 2 Abasing (some), exalting (others); 3 When the earth is shaken 4 And the hills are ground to powder 5 they will become like dust scattered around. 6 And ye will be three kinds: 7 So those on the Right Hand (i.e. those who will be given their Records in their right hands), Who will be those on the Right Hand? (As a respect for them, because they will enter Paradise). 8 Those on the Left -- how unlucky 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 the Gardens of Delight 12 A number of the earlier peoples, 13 but [only] a few of later times. 14 on lavish couches 15 reclining upon them, facing one another [in love]. 16 There wait on them immortal youths 17 with goblets, jugs and cups of crystal clear wine 18 No after-ache will they receive therefrom, nor will they suffer intoxication: 19 And fruit; that they may choose. 20 And the meat of fowl, from whatever they desire. 21 And (there will be) Houris (fair females) with wide, lovely eyes (as wives for the pious), 22 like hidden pearls, 23 As reward for what they used to do. 24 No Laghw (dirty, false, evil vain talk) will they hear therein, nor any sinful speech (like backbiting, etc.). 25 Only a saying: "Peace, peace." 26 The companions of the right - what are the companions of the right? 27 (They will be) among thornless lote-trees, 28 and clustered bananas, 29 And in everlasting shade. 30 and flowing water, 31 near to flowing water 32 unfailing, unforbidden, 33 And couches raised up. 34 We have indeed developed these women with an excellent development. 35 And made them virgins, 36 Loving (their husbands only), equal in age. 37 For those on the right. 38
