1 . When there happeneth Event.
2 . There is about its happening no lie.
3 . Abasing exalting.
4 . This will happen when the earth is shaken, shaken
5 . And the mountains are crumbled, crumbled.
6 . So that they become dust seattered.
7 . And ye are classes three.
8 . Those on the right hand; how happy shall those on the right hand be!
9 . And those on the left hand; how miserable shall those on the left hand be!
10 . And the preceders are the pre-ceders.
11 . Those! they shall be the brought nigh,
12 . In Gardens of Delight.
13 . A multitude from the ancients.
14 . And a few from the later generations.
15 . On couches in wrought with gold.
16 . Reclining thereon facing each other.
17 . There shall go round Unto them youths ever-young.
18 . With goblets and ewers and a cup of limpid drink.
19 . Whereby there shall be neither headiness nor will they be inebriated.
20 . And with fruit from that which they choose.
21 . And with flesh of fowls from that Which they desire.
22 . And there will be fair ones large eyed.
23 . The likes Unto pearls hidden.
24 . A recompense for that which they have been working.
25 . Therein they hear no vain or sinful discourse.
26 . Nought but the saying: peace! peace!
27 . And the fellows on the right hand; how be happy shall the fellows on the right hand be!
28 . Midst lote-trees thornless.
29 . And plantains laden with fruit.
30 . And a shade ever-spread.
31 . And water everflowing.
32 . And fruit abundant.
33 . Neither ending nor forbidden.
34 . And carpets raised.
35 . Verily We! We have created those maidens by a creation.
36 . And have made them virgins.
37 . Loving, of equal age.
38 . For the fellows on the right hand.
39 . A multitude from the ancients.
40 . And a multitude from the later generations.
41 . And the fellows on the left hand; how miserable Shall the fellows on the left hand be!
42 . Amidst scorching wind and scalding water.
43 . And the shade of black smoke.
44 . Neither cool nor pleasant.
45 . Verily they have been heretofore affluent.
46 . And they have been persisting in the heinous offence.
47 . And they were wont to say: when we have died and become dust and bones, shall we, then, verily be raised?
48 . We and our fathers of old?
49 . Say thou: verily the ancients and those of later generations:
50 . Are going to be assembled on the appointed time of a Day Known.
51 . Then verily ye, O ye erring, denying people.
52 . Shall surely eat of the tree of Az-Zqqum.
53 . And shall fill therewith your bellies.
54 . And shall be drinkers thereon of boiling water.
55 . Drinkers even as the drinking of thirsty camels.
56 . This shall be their entertainment on the Day of Requital.
57 . We! it is We Who created you: wherefore confess ye not?
58 . Behold! - that which ye emit.
59 . Create him ye, or are We the Creator?
60 . We! it is We Who have decreed death Unto you all. And We are not to be outrun.
61 . That We may substitute others like Unto you and produce you into that which ye know not.
62 . And assuredly ye have fully known the first Production Wherefore heed ye not?
63 . Behold! - that which ye sow.
64 . Cause it ye to grow, or are We the Grower?
65 . If We willed, surely We would make it chaff, so that ye would be left wondering.
66 . Verily we are undone.
67 . Aye! we are deprived!
68 . Behold! - the water which ye drink:
69 . Send it down ye from the raincloud, or are We the Sender down?
70 . If We willed, surely We would make it brackish. Wherefore give ye not thanks?
71 . Behold! - the fire which ye strike out:
72 . Produce ye the tree thereof, or are We the Producer?
73 . We! it is We Who made it a reminder and a provision Unto the campers.
74 . Wherefore hallow thou the name of thy Lord, the Mighty.
75 . I swear by the setting of the stars -
76 . And verily that is a mighty oath, if ye but knew!
77 . That it is a Recitation honourable.
78 . In a Book Hidden.
79 . Which none can touch except the purified.
80 . It is a revelation from the Lord of the worlds.
81 . Is it this discourse that ye hold lightly?
82 . And make it your provision that ye should belie it?
83 . Wherefore then - when the soul cometh up to the wind-pipe -
84 . And ye are then looking on.
85 . And We are nigher Unto him than ye are, but ye behold not-
86 . Wherefore then, if ye are not to be requited
87 . Cause ye it not to return, if ye say sooth?
88 . Then if he be of the broughtnigh.
89 . For him shall be comfort, and fragrance and a Garden of Delight.
90 . And if he be of the fellows on the right hand,
91 . Then: peace Unto thee, for thou art of those on the right hand.
92 . And if he be of the beliers, the erring,
93 . Then an entertainment of boiling water.
94 . And roasting in a Blaze.
95 . Verily this! this is the very truth.
96 . Wherefore hallow thou the name of thy Lord, the Mighty!
