96 verses, revealed in Mecca after T H (Taa Haa) before The Poets (Alshu'araa')
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ When the great event comes to pass, 1 and then there will be no one to deny its occurrence 2 The event will be abasing some, and exalting some. 3 When the earth is shaken up convulsively, 4 And the mountains will be crushed, blown to bits. 5 they will become like dust scattered around. 6 [on that Day] you shall be divided into three groups. 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 And (as to) the companions of the left hand; how wretched are the companions of the left hand! 9 And the foremost in the race, the foremost in the race: 10 These will be those nearest to Allah. 11 In gardens of bliss [will they dwell] 12 Many of them will be from the ancient people 13 And a few from among the latter. 14 They (will be seated) on gold-encrusted couches, 15 reclining upon them, facing one another [in love]. 16 Round about them shall go youths never altering in age, 17 With vessels, pitchers and a cup [of wine] from a flowing spring - 18 that will neither make the head throb, nor intoxicate, 19 And with fruits, any that they may select: 20 and with the flesh of any fowl that they may desire to eat; 21 And (there will be) Companions with beautiful, big, and lustrous eyes,- 22 The like of the hidden pearls: 23 [And this will be] a reward for what they did [in life]. 24 They shall not hear therein vain or sinful discourse, 25 All talk will be sound and upright. 26 The Companions of the Right (O Companions of the Right!) 27 mid thornless lote-trees 28 And clustered plantains, 29 In shade long-extended, 30 And water gushing, 31 and abundant fruit, 32 never-ending and unforbidden. 33 and upraised couches. 34 We have created (their Companions) of special creation. 35 And made them virgins. 36 Loving, equals in age, 37 like of age for the Companions of the Right. 38
