96 verses, revealed in Mecca after T H (Taa Haa) before The Poets (Alshu'araa')
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ When the Event inevitable cometh to pass, 1 there is no denying its coming 2 abasing [some,] exalting [others]! 3 when the earth will suddenly shake with a terrible shaking, 4 and the mountains are totally shattered and crumble to pieces 5 becoming scattered dust, 6 And ye shall be sorted out into three classes. 7 The People on the Right: and how fortunate will be the People on the Right! 8 And those on the left hand; how miserable shall those on the left hand be! 9 As for the Foremost, they will be the foremost! 10 they who were [always] drawn close unto God! 11 In the Gardens of Pleasure, 12 A throng of the ancients, 13 And a few of the later peoples, 14 They (will be seated) on gold-encrusted couches, 15 reclining upon them, facing one another [in love]. 16 Surrounded by immortal boys. 17 with goblets, jugs and cups of crystal clear wine 18 that will neither make the head throb, nor intoxicate, 19 And fruit that they prefer 20 And the flesh of fowls that they desire. 21 And [for them are] fair women with large, [beautiful] eyes, 22 Like unto preserved pearls. 23 As recompense for all they had done. 24 They will hear no nonsense there or talk of sin, 25 (Naught) but the saying: Peace, (and again) Peace. 26 And the fellows on the right hand; how be happy shall the fellows on the right hand be! 27 (They will be) among thornless lote-trees, 28 And clustered plantains, 29 and shade extended, 30 and gushing water, 31 and fruit abounding, 32 never-ending and unrestricted, 33 And exalted thrones. 34 and their spouses We shall have brought them into being afresh, 35 And made them virgin - pure (and undefiled), - 36 Lovers, friends, 37 For the sake of the companions of the right hand. 38
