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, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ When the inevitable event comes, (1) And there can be no denying of its befalling. (2) It will bring down [some] and raise up [others]. (3) This will happen when the earth is shaken, shaken (4) and the mountains crumbled, (5) becoming scattered dust, (6) and you shall be three bands -- (7) (First) those on the right hand; what of those on the right hand? (8) And (then) those on the left hand; what of those on the left hand? (9) And the foremost in the race, the foremost in the race: (10) These will be those nearest to Allah. (11) They will dwell in the Gardens of Bliss: (12) A numerous company from among the first, (13) And a few of those (foremost) will be from the later time (generations). (14) On lined couches, (15) they shall recline, facing each other, (16) Youths of never-ending bloom will pass round to them (17) with goblets, jugs and cups of crystal clear wine (18) Wherefrom they will get neither any aching of the head, nor any intoxication. (19) And with fruit from that which they choose. (20) Bird meats that they relish, (21) and fair maidens with large, lustrous eyes (22) like hidden pearls, (23) A reward for what they used to do. (24) They will not hear any useless speech in it, or any sin. (25) only the saying 'Peace, Peace!' (26) As for the People on the Right, how fortunate shall be the people on the Right! (27) [They, too, will find themselves] amidst fruit laden lote-trees, (28) And [banana] trees layered [with fruit] (29) In shade long-extended, (30) And in perpetually flowing water. (31) And fruit in plenty (32) never-failing and never out of reach. (33) undiminished and never denied (34) and the noble maidens (35) having resurrected them as virgins, (36) loving companions, matching in age, (37) For the sake of the companions of the right hand. (38)
