۞ When there happeneth the Event. 1 Then none will be able to deny its occurrence. 2 (it will) abase (some) and exalt (others). 3 When the earth shall be shaken to its depths, 4 And the mountains are broken down, crumbling 5 so that they become as scattered dust 6 You will become three categories: 7 Then (there will be) the Companions of the Right Hand;- What will be 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 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 beautiful Paradise. 12 A number of the earlier peoples, 13 but [only] a few of later times. 14 On thrones woven [with ornament], 15 reclining on them, arrayed face to face; 16 Immortal youths will serve them 17 With cups, and jugs, and a glass from the flowing wine, 18 Their heads shall not ache with it, nor shall they lose their senses. 19 And fruit of what they select 20 and the meat of any bird that they may desire; 21 and fair maidens with large, lustrous eyes 22 like pearls preserved in their shells, 23 A reward for what they used to do. 24 They will not hear any useless speech in it, or any sin. 25 All talk will be sound and upright. 26 The Companions of the Right 27 [They, too, will find themselves] amidst fruit laden lote-trees, 28 And acacia covered with heaps of bloom, 29 and continuous shade, 30 And water gushing, 31 And abundant fruit, 32 Whose season is not limited, and their supply will not be cut off, 33 They shall be on upraised couches, 34 We have indeed developed these women with an excellent development. 35 And made them virginal, 36 chastely amorous, 37 For those on the right hand; 38
