96 verses, revealed in Mecca after T H (Taa Haa) before The Poets (Alshu'araa')
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
۞ When the Terror descends 1 Then none will be able to deny its occurrence. 2 It will bring low (some); (and others) it will exalt; 3 When the earth is shaken up convulsively, 4 And the mountains shall be made to crumble with (an awful) crumbling, 5 So they will become like fine dust, scattered in a shaft of light. 6 [on that Day] you shall be divided into three groups. 7 (First) those on the right hand; what of those on the right hand? 8 And the People on the Left: and how miserable will be the People on the Left! 9 Then the foremost, how pre-excellent, 10 Those are they who will be brought nigh 11 In the Gardens of Pleasure, 12 A large group from the earlier generations. 13 and how few of the later folk) 14 (They will be) on Thrones encrusted (with gold and precious stones), 15 reclining upon them, facing one another [in love]. 16 There wait on them immortal youths 17 Carrying bowls and pitchers and cups filled with wine flowing before them. 18 that will neither make the head throb, nor intoxicate, 19 And fruit of what they select 20 And the flesh of fowls, any that they may desire. 21 And pure, beautiful ones, 22 Like unto preserved pearls. 23 a recompense for that they laboured. 24 They will not hear any unnecessary or sinful talk 25 Only a saying: "Peace, peace." 26 Those on the Right, how fortunate are those on the Right! 27 (will be) among thornless Lote trees. 28 And plantains laden with fruit. 29 and spreading shade 30 And in perpetually flowing water. 31 And plenty of fruits. 32 never-ending and unrestricted, 33 And carpets raised. 34 and their spouses We shall have brought them into being afresh, 35 So made them as maidens. 36 Loving companions matched in age, 37 For those on the Right Hand. 38
