The Inevitable (Al-Waaqe'ah)
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 inevitable event takes place, (1) there will be nought that could give the lie to its having come to pass, (2) The event will be abasing some, and exalting some. (3) When the earth is shaken with a shaking [severe,] (4) and the mountains will crumble (5) and become a dust, scattered, (6) [on that Day,] then, shall you be [divided into] three kinds. (7) Then (as to) the companions of the right hand; how happy are the companions of the right hand! (8) And the People on the Left: and how miserable will be the People on the Left! (9) And the foremost are the foremost, (10) These will be those nearest to Allah. (11) in the Gardens of Bliss. (12) A multitude of those (foremost) will be from the first generations (who embraced Islam). (13) but only a few from the later generations. (14) On studded thrones. (15) reclining upon them, set face to face, (16) (and there) shall wait on them immortal youths (17) Carrying bowls and pitchers and cups filled with wine flowing before them. (18) (no brows throbbing, no intoxication) (19) and such fruits as they shall choose, (20) And meat of birds that they may wish. (21) and wide-eyed houris (22) like the pearls in their shells: (23) A reward for what they used to do. (24) Therein they shall hear no idle talk, no cause of sin, (25) but only the tiding of inner soundness and peace. (26) NOW AS FOR those who have attained to righteousness - what of those who have attained to righteousness? (27) They will live amid the thornless lot trees (28) and banana trees, (29) and spreading shade (30) And water poured out (31) And fruit in abundance. (32) never-ending and unrestricted, (33) And exalted thrones. (34) Verily, We have created them (maidens) of special creation. (35) having resurrected them as virgins, (36) loving companions, matching in age, (37) loving and of equal age. (38)
