Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ When the forthcoming event does occur. (1) There is no denying that it will befall - (2) (it will) abase (some) and exalt (others). (3) When the earth is shaken (4) And the hills are ground to powder (5) So that they become dust seattered. (6) And you (all) will be in three kinds (i.e. separate groups). (7) Those of the right hand -- how (happy) will be those of the right hand! (8) Companions of the Left, what are the Companions of the Left? (9) And the preceders are the preceders. (10) Those are they who will be brought nigh (11) In Gardens of Delight. (12) A multitude of those of old (13) And a few from the later generations. (14) On lined couches, (15) Reclining thereon, face to face. (16) they will be waited on by ageless youths (17) Cups and decanters, beakers full of sparkling wine, (18) neither causing headaches, nor intoxication; (19) and such fruits as they shall choose, (20) and the meat of any bird that they may desire; (21) and there shall be wide-eyed maidens, (22) Like unto hidden pearls, (23) A recompense for that which they have been working. (24) They will not hear any unnecessary or sinful talk (25) Only the saying, "Peace! Peace". (26) The companions of the right - what are the companions of the right? (27) They shall be in the midst of thornless lote trees, (28) and serried acacias, (29) In shade long-extended, (30) and gushing water, (31) And fruits numberless, (32) unfailing and not forbidden. (33) They shall be on upraised couches, (34) Lo! We have created them a (new) creation (35) And made them virgins, (36) intensely loving and of matching age. (37) For those on the right. (38)
