In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
۞ When the Occurrence occurs, 1 Which is bound to happen undoubtedly -- 2 abasing [some,] exalting [others]! 3 When the earth is shaken with a shock 4 And the mountains will be powdered to dust. 5 becoming scattered dust, 6 [on that Day] you shall be divided into three groups. 7 Companions of the Right, what are the Companions of the Right? 8 And there shall be such as will have lost themselves in evil: oh, how [unhappy] will be they who have lost themselves in evil! 9 The foremost ones (in faith and virtue) - the foremost ones in receiving their reward. 10 (The foremost ones) will be the nearest ones to God 11 In the Gardens of Pleasure, 12 a host of the ancients 13 And a few from the latter. 14 upon close-wrought couches 15 Reclining face to face. 16 There wait on them immortal youths 17 with goblets, and ewers, and cups filled with water from unsullied springs 18 neither causing headaches, nor intoxication; 19 And fruit that they prefer 20 And meat of birds that they may wish. 21 and there shall be wide-eyed maidens, 22 Like pearls safely hidden. 23 A Reward for the deeds of their past (life). 24 Not frivolity will they hear therein, nor any taint of ill,- 25 but only the saying: 'Peace, Peace' 26 The Companions of the Right (O Companions of the Right!) 27 They shall be in the midst of thornless lote trees, 28 and serried acacias, 29 and spreading shade 30 And in perpetually flowing water. 31 and abundant fruit, 32 never-failing and never out of reach. 33 on raised couches. 34 and the noble maidens 35 And made them virgins, 36 Loving, equals in age, 37 for the Companions of the Right 38
