In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ When the Event (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) befalls. (1) no soul will deny its coming. (2) The event will be abasing some, and exalting some. (3) This will happen when the earth is shaken, shaken (4) And the hills are ground to powder (5) Turned to dust, floating in the air, (6) you shall be divided into three parties, (7) Companions of the Right, what are the Companions of the Right? (8) And the companions of the left - what are the companions of the left? (9) And the Outstrippers, the Outstrippers (10) Those! they shall be the brought nigh, (11) in the Gardens of Delight (12) a large group of the early believers, (13) And a few from the latter. (14) [They will be seated] on gold-encrusted thrones of happiness, (15) they shall recline, facing each other, (16) There shall go round unto them youths ever-young. (17) Cups and decanters, beakers full of sparkling wine, (18) No after-ache will they receive therefrom, nor will they suffer intoxication: (19) And with fruit from that which they choose. (20) Bird meats that they relish, (21) And (there will be) Houris (fair females) with wide, lovely eyes (as wives for the pious), (22) Like pearls safely hidden. (23) A Reward for the deeds of their past (life). (24) There they shall hear no idle talk, no cause of sin, (25) But only the saying of: Salam!, Salam! (greetings with peace)! (26) As for the people of the right hand, how happy they will be! (27) Among thorn-less lote-trees. (28) and clustered bananas, (29) and extended shade, (30) And in perpetually flowing water. (31) And fruit in plenty (32) never-failing and never out of reach. (33) And raised couches; (34) We have formed them in a distinctive fashion, (35) and shall have made them virgins, (36) We have made them virgins, (37) for those on the Right, (38)
