۞ WHEN WHAT IS to happen comes to pass -- 1 and then there will be no one to deny its occurrence 2 abasing [some,] exalting [others]! 3 When the earth will tremble, shivering. 4 And the mountains will be powdered to dust. 5 So that they shall be as scattered dust. 6 And you shall be three sorts. 7 Companions of the Right, what are the Companions of the Right? 8 Companions of the Left, what are the Companions of the Left? 9 Then the foremost, how pre-excellent, 10 They shall be the nearest to God. 11 In gardens of bliss [will they dwell] 12 Many of them will be from the ancient people 13 and how few of the later folk) 14 upon close-wrought couches 15 Reclining on them, facing each other. 16 Round about them shall go youths never altering in age, 17 with goblets and ewers and a cup filled with a drink drawn from a running spring, 18 They shall not be affected with headache thereby, nor shall they get exhausted, 19 and with fruit of any kind that they may choose, 20 And the flesh of fowls, any that they may desire. 21 And (there will be) Houris (fair females) with wide, lovely eyes (as wives for the pious), 22 The like of the hidden pearls: 23 [And this will be] a reward for what they did [in life]. 24 Therein they hear no vain or sinful discourse. 25 All talk will be sound and upright. 26 The Companions of the Right Hand,- what will be the Companions of the Right Hand? 27 (will be) among thornless Lote trees. 28 and flower-clad acacias, 29 And in everlasting shade. 30 and gushing water, 31 And plenty of fruits. 32 Whose season is not limited, nor (supply) forbidden, 33 And [upon] beds raised high. 34 Verily We! We have created those maidens by a creation. 35 And made them virgins, 36 chaste, loving companions of the same age 37 For those on the right. 38
