96 verses, revealed in Mecca after T H (Taa Haa) before The Poets (Alshu'araa')
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
۞ When the forthcoming event does occur. (1) There is about its happening no lie. (2) It will bring low (some); (and others) it will exalt; (3) When the earth is violently shaken (4) and the mountains crumbled (5) Turned to dust, floating in the air, (6) And you will become divided into three categories. (7) Companions of the Right (O Companions of the Right!) (8) Then those of the left hand -- how (unhappy) will be those of the left hand! (9) And the Outstrippers, the Outstrippers (10) those are they brought nigh the Throne, (11) in the Gardens of Delight, (12) a host of the ancients (13) And a few of those of later time. (14) On couches wrought of gold, (15) Reclining thereon, face to face. (16) Immortal youths will serve them (17) with goblets, jugs and cups of crystal clear wine (18) They shall not be affected with headache thereby, nor shall they get exhausted, (19) And fruits that they may like. (20) And the flesh of fowls, any that they may desire. (21) And (there will be) Companions with beautiful, big, and lustrous eyes,- (22) like unto pearls [still] hidden in their shells. (23) A recompense for that which they have been working. (24) There hear they no vain speaking nor recrimination (25) Only the saying, "Peace! Peace". (26) The companions of the right - what are the companions of the right? (27) [They will be] among lote trees with thorns removed (28) And plantains laden with fruit. (29) and extended shade, (30) and gushing water, (31) and fruits abounding (32) never-failing and never out of reach. (33) And carpets raised. (34) We have formed them in a distinctive fashion, (35) And made them virgins, (36) Loving, equals in age, (37) For the Companions of the Right Hand. (38)
