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 great event comes to pass, (1) there is no denying its coming (2) abasing [some,] exalting [others]! (3) This will happen when the earth is shaken, shaken (4) and the mountains fragmented (5) Turned to dust, floating in the air, (6) [on that Day] you shall be divided into three groups. (7) So those on the Right Hand (i.e. those who will be given their Records in their right hands), Who will be those on the Right Hand? (As a respect for them, because they will enter Paradise). (8) Then those of the left hand -- how (unhappy) will be those of the left hand! (9) And the foremost in the race, the foremost in the race: (10) those are they brought nigh the Throne, (11) In the gardens of bliss. (12) (a throng of the ancients (13) but only a few from the later generations. (14) On couches wrought of gold, (15) Reclining face to face. (16) they will be waited on by ageless youths (17) with goblets, and ewers, and cups filled with water from unsullied springs (18) Unheady, uninebriating; (19) And fruit that they prefer (20) and any flesh of fowl that they desire. (21) And gorgeous eyed fair maidens. (22) Like unto Pearls well-guarded. (23) A Reward for the deeds of their past (life). (24) They will not hear therein ill speech or commission of sin - (25) Only a saying: "Peace, peace." (26) And the fellows on the right hand; how be happy shall the fellows on the right hand be! (27) mid thornless lote-trees (28) Bananatrees, piled (29) and extended shade, (30) and flowing water, (31) and fruits in abundance, (32) never-ending and unrestricted, (33) And [upon] beds raised high. (34) We have formed them in a distinctive fashion, (35) that We have created (for the people of the right hand). (36) We have made them virgins, (37) For the Companions of the Right Hand. (38)
