96 verses, revealed in Mecca after T H (Taa Haa) before The Poets (Alshu'araa')
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ When the inevitable event comes, (1) no soul will deny its coming. (2) (Many) will it bring low; (many) will it exalt; (3) When the earth is shaken (4) And the mountains shall be crumbled to atoms, (5) Turned to dust, floating in the air, (6) You will become three categories: (7) Thus, there shall be such as will have attained to what is right: oh, how [happy] will be they who have attained to what is right! (8) And those on the Left Hand (i.e. those who will be given their Record in their left hands), Who will be those on the Left Hand? (As a disgrace for them, because they will enter Hell). (9) But the foremost shall be [they who in life were] the foremost [in faith and good works]: (10) they who were [always] drawn close unto God! (11) In Gardens of Bliss: (12) a host of the ancients (13) but only a few from the later generations. (14) On lined couches, (15) they shall recline, facing each other, (16) Round about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness), (17) With vessels, pitchers and a cup [of wine] from a flowing spring - (18) No after-ache will they receive therefrom, nor will they suffer intoxication: (19) And fruits that they may like. (20) And the meat of fowl, from whatever they desire. (21) and wide-eyed houris (22) The likes unto pearls hidden. (23) Reward for what they used to do. (24) They shall not hear therein vain or sinful discourse, (25) But only the saying of: Salam!, Salam! (greetings with peace)! (26) Those on the Right, how fortunate are those on the Right! (27) Midst lote-trees thornless. (28) And banana-trees (with fruits), one above another. (29) and extended shade, (30) By water flowing constantly, (31) and abundant fruit, (32) Whose season is not limited, and their supply will not be cut off, (33) And on couches or thrones, raised high. (34) for, behold, We shall have brought them into being in a life renewed, (35) and made them virgins, (36) chastely amorous, (37) For those on the right. (38)
