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, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ When the forthcoming event does occur. (1) and then there will be no one to deny its occurrence (2) Abasing (one party), exalting (the other), (3) This will happen when the earth is shaken, shaken (4) and the mountains crumbled (5) becoming scattered dust, (6) You will become three categories: (7) Thus, there shall be such as will have attained to what is right: oh, how [happy] will be they who have attained to what is right! (8) And (as to) the companions of the left hand; how wretched are the companions of the left hand! (9) But the foremost shall be [they who in life were] the foremost [in faith and good works]: (10) These are they who are drawn nigh (to Allah), (11) In the Gardens of Pleasure, (12) A number of people from those of old, (13) but only a few from the later generations. (14) On thrones woven [with ornament], (15) Reclining on them, facing each other. (16) Youths of never-ending bloom will pass round to them (17) with goblets, and ewers, and a cup from a spring (18) Wherefrom they get no aching of the head nor any madness, (19) And fruits that they may like. (20) And the flesh of fowls, any that they may desire. (21) and wide-eyed houris (22) The likes unto pearls hidden. (23) A recompense for that which they have been working. (24) There they shall hear no idle talk, no cause of sin, (25) only the words of peace and tranquillity. (26) As for the People on the Right, how fortunate shall be the people on the Right! (27) Amid thornless lote-trees, (28) And plantains laden with fruit. (29) and extended shade, (30) And in perpetually flowing water. (31) And fruit in plenty (32) unfailing, unforbidden, (33) And couches raised up. (34) We have formed them in a distinctive fashion, (35) and We made them spotless virgins, (36) The beloved of their husbands, of one age. (37) For those of the right hand. (38)
