96 verses, revealed in Mecca after T H (Taa Haa) before The Poets (Alshu'araa')
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
۞ When the Event inevitable cometh to pass, 1 there will be nought that could give the lie to its having come to pass, 2 Degrading (some) and exalting (others); 3 when the earth shall be rocked 4 and the mountains are shattered into [countless] shards, 5 becoming scattered dust, 6 And you become [of] three kinds: 7 Then (there will be) the Companions of the Right Hand;- What will be the Companions of the Right Hand? 8 Then those of the left hand -- how (unhappy) will be those of the left hand! 9 And the forerunners, the forerunners - 10 those are they brought near (to their Lord) 11 In the gardens of bliss. 12 A multitude of those (foremost) will be from the first generations (who embraced Islam). 13 And a few of the later peoples, 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 with goblets and ewers and a cup filled with a drink drawn from a running spring, 18 Whereby there shall be neither headiness nor will they be inebriated. 19 Also, they will be served with the fruits of their choice 20 and any flesh of fowl that they desire. 21 And gorgeous eyed fair maidens. 22 Like pearls safely hidden. 23 a recompense for that they laboured. 24 They will hear no nonsense there or talk of sin, 25 except each other's greetings of, "Peace be with you". 26 And those on the right how (fortunate) are those on the right! 27 They shall recline on high amidst lote trees without thorns 28 and acacias flower-clad, 29 Lengthened shadows, 30 Gushing water, 31 And fruit in plenty 32 never-failing and never out of reach. 33 And [with them will be their] spouses, raised high: 34 Surely We have made them to grow into a (new) growth, 35 And made them virgins. 36 The beloved of their husbands, of one age. 37 For those on the Right Hand. 38
