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, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
۞ When the inevitable event comes, (1) And there can be no denying of its befalling. (2) It will abase some and exalt others. (3) When the earth is violently shaken (4) And the mountains shall be made to crumble with (an awful) crumbling, (5) so that they become as scattered dust (6) And ye are classes three. (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) And (then) those on the left hand; what of those on the left hand? (9) And the Outstrippers, the Outstrippers (10) Who will be honoured (11) in the Gardens of Delight, (12) a large group of the early believers, (13) And a few of those (foremost) will be from the later time (generations). (14) They (will be seated) on gold-encrusted couches, (15) reclining on them facing each other; (16) they will be waited on by ageless youths (17) With goblets and ewers and a cup of pure drink; (18) Unheady, uninebriating; (19) And with fruits, any that they may select: (20) And the flesh of fowls, any that they may desire. (21) and fair maidens with large, lustrous eyes (22) as the likeness of hidden pearls, (23) As recompense for all they had done. (24) They will not hear therein any vain or sinful talk, (25) but only the tiding of inner soundness and peace. (26) As for the People on the Right, how fortunate shall be the people on the Right! (27) Amid thornless lote-trees, (28) And [banana] trees layered [with fruit] (29) And extended shade, (30) and flowing water, (31) And fruit in abundance. (32) Neither intercepted nor forbidden, (33) And maidens incomparable. (34) We have created (their Companions) of special creation. (35) and We made them spotless virgins, (36) The beloved of their husbands, of one age. (37) For the Companions of the Right Hand. (38)
