1When the event befalleth -
2There is no denying that it will befall -
3Abasing (some), exalting (others);
4When the earth is shaken with a shock
5And the hills are ground to powder
6So that they become a scattered dust,
7And ye will be three kinds:
8(First) those on the right hand; what of those on the right hand?
9And (then) those on the left hand; what of those on the left hand?
10And the foremost in the race, the foremost in the race:
11Those are they who will be brought nigh
12In gardens of delight;
13A multitude of those of old
14And a few of those of later time.
15On lined couches,
16Reclining therein face to face.
17There wait on them immortal youths
18With bowls and ewers and a cup from a pure spring
19Wherefrom they get no aching of the head nor any madness,
20And fruit that they prefer
21And flesh of fowls that they desire.
22And (there are) fair ones with wide, lovely eyes,
23Like unto hidden pearls,
24Reward for what they used to do.
25There hear they no vain speaking nor recrimination
26(Naught) but the saying: Peace, (and again) Peace.
27And those on the right hand; what of those on the right hand?
28Among thornless lote-trees
29And clustered plantains,
30And spreading shade,
31And water gushing,
32And fruit in plenty
33Neither out of reach nor yet forbidden,
34And raised couches;
35Lo! We have created them a (new) creation
36And made them virgins,
37Lovers, friends,
38For those on the right hand;
39A multitude of those of old
40And a multitude of those of later time.
41And those on the left hand: What of those on the left hand?
42In scorching wind and scalding water
43And shadow of black smoke,
44Neither cool nor refreshing.
45Lo! heretofore they were effete with luxury
46And used to persist in the awful sin.
47And they used to say: When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then, forsooth, be raised again,
48And also our forefathers?
49Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Lo! those of old and those of later time
50Will all be brought together to the tryst of an appointed day.
51Then lo! ye, the erring, the deniers,
52Ye verily will eat of a tree called Zaqqum
53And will fill your bellies therewith;
54And thereon ye will drink of boiling water,
55Drinking even as the camel drinketh.
56This will be their welcome on the Day of Judgment.
57We created you. Will ye then admit the truth?
58Have ye seen that which ye emit?
59Do ye create it or are We the Creator?
60We mete out death among you, and We are not to be outrun,
61That We may transfigure you and make you what ye know not.
62And verily ye know the first creation. Why, then, do ye not reflect?
63Have ye seen that which ye cultivate?
64Is it ye who foster it, or are We the Fosterer?
65If We willed, We verily could make it chaff, then would ye cease not to exclaim:
66Lo! we are laden with debt!
67Nay, but we are deprived!
68Have ye observed the water which ye drink?
69Is it ye who shed it from the raincloud, or are We the Shedder?
70If We willed We verily could make it bitter. Why then, give ye not thanks?
71Have ye observed the fire which ye strike out;
72Was it ye who made the tree thereof to grow, or were We the grower?
73We, even We, appointed it a memorial and a comfort for the dwellers in the wilderness.
74Therefor (O Muhammad), praise the name of thy Lord, the Tremendous.
75Nay, I swear by the places of the stars -
76And lo! that verily is a tremendous oath, if ye but knew -
77That (this) is indeed a noble Qur'an
78In a Book kept hidden
79Which none toucheth save the purified,
80A revelation from the Lord of the Worlds.
81Is it this Statement that ye scorn,
82And make denial thereof your livelihood?
83Why, then, when (the soul) cometh up to the throat (of the dying)
84And ye are at that moment looking
85- And We are nearer unto him than ye are, but ye see not -
86Why then, if ye are not in bondage (unto Us),
87Do ye not force it back, if ye are truthful?
88Thus if he is of those brought nigh,
89Then breath of life, and plenty, and a Garden of delight.
90And if he is of those on the right hand,
91Then (the greeting) "Peace be unto thee" from those on the right hand.
92But if he is of the rejecters, the erring,
93Then the welcome will be boiling water
94And roasting at hell-fire.
95Lo! this is certain truth.
96Therefor (O Muhammad) praise the name of thy Lord, the Tremendous.
