96 verses, revealed in Mecca after T H (Taa Haa) before The Poets (Alshu'araa')
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
۞ WHEN THAT which must come to pass [at last] comes to pass, 1 And there can be no denying of its befalling. 2 (Many) will it bring low; (many) will it exalt; 3 When the earth is shaken with a shaking [severe,] 4 and the mountains are totally shattered and crumble to pieces 5 So that they become a scattered dust, 6 and you shall be three bands -- 7 Companions of the Right, what are the Companions of the Right? 8 And those on the left hand; how miserable shall those on the left hand be! 9 And those foremost [(in Islamic Faith of Monotheism and in performing righteous deeds) in the life of this world on the very first call for to embrace Islam,] will be foremost (in Paradise). 10 Who will be honoured 11 In the Gardens of delight (Paradise). 12 A [large] company of the former peoples 13 but only a few from the later generations. 14 They will recline on jewelled couches 15 reclining upon them, facing one another [in love]. 16 Surrounded by immortal boys. 17 With bowls and ewers and a cup from a pure spring 18 Unheady, uninebriating; 19 And fruits that they may like. 20 and with the flesh of any fowl that they may desire to eat; 21 and there shall be wide-eyed maidens, 22 The like of the hidden pearls: 23 shall be their recompense for their deeds. 24 They shall not hear therein vain or sinful discourse, 25 but only the tiding of inner soundness and peace. 26 The Companions of the Right Hand,- what will be the Companions of the Right Hand? 27 (They will be) among thornless lote-trees, 28 And plantains laden with fruit. 29 And shade extended 30 And water gushing, 31 and abundant fruit, 32 Neither intercepted nor forbidden, 33 undiminished and never denied 34 Lo! We have created them a (new) creation 35 and shall have made them virgins, 36 chaste, loving companions of the same age 37 For the companions of the right [who are] 38
