1When the great event comes to pass,
2There is no belying its coming to pass--
3Abasing (one party), exalting (the other),
4When the earth shall be shaken with a (severe) shaking,
5And the mountains shall be made to crumble with (an awful) crumbling,
6So that they shall be as scattered dust.
7And you shall be three sorts.
8Then (as to) the companions of the right hand; how happy are the companions of the right hand!
9And (as to) the companions of the left hand; how wretched are the companions of the left hand!
10And the foremost are the foremost,
11These are they who are drawn nigh (to Allah),
12In the gardens of bliss.
13A numerous company from among the first,
14And a few from among the latter.
15On thrones decorated,
16Reclining on them, facing one another.
17Round about them shall go youths never altering in age,
18With goblets and ewers and a cup of pure drink;
19They shall not be affected with headache thereby, nor shall they get exhausted,
20And fruits such as they choose,
21And the flesh of fowl such as they desire.
22And pure, beautiful ones,
23The like of the hidden pearls:
24A reward for what they used to do.
25They shall not hear therein vain or sinful discourse,
26Except the word peace, peace.
27And the companions of the right hand; how happy are the companions of the right hand!
28Amid thornless lote-trees,
29And banana-trees (with fruits), one above another.
30And extended shade,
31And water flowing constantly,
32And abundant fruit,
33Neither intercepted nor forbidden,
34And exalted thrones.
35Surely We have made them to grow into a (new) growth,
36Then We have made them virgins,
37Loving, equals in age,
38For the sake of the companions of the right hand.
39A numerous company from among the first,
40And a numerous company from among the last.
41And those of the left hand, how wretched are those of the left hand!
42In hot wind and boiling water,
43And the shade of black smoke,
44Neither cool nor honorable.
45Surely they were before that made to live in ease and plenty.
46And they persisted in the great violation.
47And they used to say: What! when we die and have become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be raised?
48Or our fathers of yore?
49Say: The first and the last,
50Shall most surely be gathered together for the appointed hour of a known day.
51Then shall you, O you who err and call it a lie!
52Most surely eat of a tree of Zaqqoom,
53And fill (your) bellies with it;
54Then drink over it of boiling water;
55And drink as drinks the thirsty camel.
56This is their entertainment on the day of requital.
57We have created you, why do you not then assent?
58Have you considered the seed?
59Is it you that create it or are We the creators?
60We have ordained death among you and We are not to be overcome,
61In order that We may bring in your place the likes of you and make you grow into what you know not.
62And certainly you know the first growth, why do you not then mind?
63Have you considered what you sow?
64Is it you that cause it to grow, or are We the causers of growth?
65If We pleased, We should have certainly made it broken down into pieces, then would you begin to lament:
66Surely we are burdened with debt:
67Nay! we are deprived.
68Have you considered the water which you drink?
69Is it you that send it down from the clouds, or are We the senders?
70If We pleased, We would have made it salty; why do you not then give thanks?
71Have you considered the fire which you strike?
72Is it you that produce the trees for it, or are We the producers?
73We have made it a reminder and an advantage for the wayfarers of the desert.
74Therefore glorify the name of your Lord, the Great.
75But nay! I swear by the falling of stars;
76And most surely it is a very great oath if you only knew;
77Most surely it is an honored Quran,
78In a book that is protected
79None shall touch it save the purified ones.
80A revelation by the Lord of the worlds.
81Do you then hold this announcement in contempt?
82And to give (it) the lie you make your means of subsistence.
83Why is it not then that when it (soul) comes up to the throat,
84And you at that time look on--
85And We are nearer to it than you, but you do not see--
86Then why is it not-- if you are not held under authority--
87That you send it (not) back-- if you are truthful?
88Then if he is one of those drawn nigh (to Allah),
89Then happiness and bounty and a garden of bliss.
90And if he is one of those on the right hand,
91Then peace to you from those on the right hand.
92And if he is one of the rejecters, the erring ones,
93He shall have an entertainment of boiling water,
94And burning in hell.
95Most surely this is a certain truth.
96Therefore glorify the name of your Lord, the Great.
