96 verses, revealed in Mecca after T H (Taa Haa) before The Poets (Alshu'araa')
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ When the inevitable event takes place, 1 Which is bound to happen undoubtedly -- 2 (Many) will it bring low; (many) will it exalt; 3 When the earth is shaken with a shock 4 And the mountains shall be crumbled to atoms, 5 so that they become as scattered dust 6 You shall then become three groups. 7 Companions of the Right, what are the Companions of the Right? 8 Then those of the left hand -- how (unhappy) will be those of the left hand! 9 And those Foremost (in Faith) will be Foremost (in the Hereafter). 10 These will be those Nearest to Allah: 11 In gardens of bliss [will they dwell] 12 A [large] company of the former peoples 13 And a few of those of later time. 14 They will recline on jewelled couches 15 Reclining therein face to face. 16 Round about them shall go youths never altering in age, 17 With goblets and ewers and a cup of limpid drink. 18 Wherefrom they get no aching of the head nor any madness, 19 Also, they will be served with the fruits of their choice 20 And the meat of fowl, from whatever they desire. 21 And gorgeous eyed fair maidens. 22 like hidden pearls, 23 The reward for what they did. 24 They will not hear any useless speech in it, or any sin. 25 Except the word peace, peace. 26 And the fellows on the right hand; how be happy shall the fellows on the right hand be! 27 Among thornless lote-trees 28 Bananatrees, piled 29 Lengthened shadows, 30 And water flowing constantly, 31 and an abundance of fruits, 32 Neither ending nor forbidden. 33 And maidens incomparable. 34 and the noble maidens 35 And have made them virgins. 36 We have made them virgins, 37 for those on the Right, 38
