In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
     
  1 . When the event befalleth .

2 . There is no denying that it will befall

3 . Abasing ( some ) , exalting ( others ) ;

4 . When the earth is shaken with a shock

5 . And the hills are ground to powder

6 . So that they become a scattered dust ,

7 . And ye will be three kinds :

8 . ( First ) those on the right hand ; what of those on the right hand?

9 . And ( then ) those on the left hand ; what of those on the left hand?

10 . And the foremost in the race , the foremost in the race :

11 . Those are they who will be brought nigh

12 . In gardens of delight ;

13 . A multitude of those of old

14 . And a few of those of later time

15 . On lined couches ,

16 . Reclining therein face to face .

17 . There wait on them immortal youths

18 . With bowls and ewers and a cup from a pure spring

19 . Wherefrom they get no aching of the head nor any madness ,

20 . And fruit that they prefer

21 . And flesh of fowls that they desire

22 . And ( there are ) fair ones with wide , lovely eyes ,

23 . Like unto hidden pearls ,

24 . Reward for what they used do .

25 . There hear they no vain speaking nor recrimination

26 . ( Naught ) but the saying : Peace , ( and again ) Peace .

27 . And those on the right hand ; what of those on the right hand?

28 . Among thornless lote tree

29 . And clustered plantains ,

30 . And spreading shade ,

31 . And water gushing ,

32 . And fruit in plenary

33 . Neither out of reach nor yet forbidden ,

34 . And raised couches ,

35 . Lo! We have created them a ( new ) creation

36 . And made them virgins

37 . Lovers , friends ,

38 . For those on the right hand ;

39 . A multitude of those of old

40 . And a multitude of those of later time .

41 . And those on the left hand : What of those on the left hand?

42 . In scorching wind and scalding water

43 . And shadow of black smoke ,

44 . Neither cool nor refreshing .

45 . Lo! heretofore they were effete with luxury

46 . And used to persist in the awful sin .

47 . And they used to say : When we are dead and have come dust and bones , shall we then , forsooth , be raised again ,

48 . And also our forefathers?

49 . Say ( unto them , O Muhammad ) : Lo! those of old and those of later time

50 . Will all be brought together to the tryst of an appointed day .

51 . Then lo! ye , the erring , the deniers ,

52 . Ye verily will eat of a tree called Zaqqum

53 . And will fill your bellies therewith ;

54 . And thereon ye will drink of boiling water ,

55 . Drinking even as the camel drinketh .

56 . This will be their welcome on the Day of Judgment

57 . We created you . Will ye then admit the truth?

58 . Have ye seen that which ye emit?

59 . Do ye create it or are We the creator?

60 . We mete out death among you , and We are not to be outrun ,

61 . That We may transfigure you and make you what ye know not .

62 . And verily ye know the first creation . Why , then , do ye not reflect?

63 . Have ye seen that which ye cultivate?

64 . Is it ye who foster it , or are We the Fosterer?

65 . If We willed , We verily could make it chaff , then would ye cease not to exclaim :

66 . Lo! we are laden with debt!

67 . Nay , but we are deprived!

68 . Have ye observed the water which ye drink?

69 . Is it ye who shed it from the rain cloud , or are We the shedder?

70 . If We willed We verily could make it bitter . why , then , give ye not thanks?

71 . Have ye observed the fire which ye strike out ;

72 . Was it ye who made the tree thereof to grow , or were We the grower?

73 . We , even We , appointed it a memorial and a comfort for the dwellers in the wilderness .

74 . Therefor ( O Muhammad ) , praise the name of thy Lord , the Tremendous .

75 . Nay , I swear by the places of the stars

76 . And lo! that verily is a tremendous oath , if ye but knew

77 . That ( this ) is indeed a noble Quran

78 . In a Book kept hidden

79 . Which none toucheth save the purified ,

80 . A revelation from the Lord of the Worlds .

81 . Is it this Statement that ye scorn ,

82 . And make denial thereof your livelihood?

83 . Why , then , when ( the soul ) cometh up to the throat ( of the dying )

84 . And ye are at that moment looking

85 . And We are nearer unto him than ye are , but ye see not

86 . Why then , if ye are not in bondage ( unto Us ) ,

87 . Do ye not force it back , if ye are truthful?

88 . Thus if he is of those brought nigh ,

89 . Then breath of life , and plenty , and a Garden of delight

90 . And if he is of those on the right hand ,

91 . Then ( the greeting ) "Peace be unto thee" from those on the right hand

92 . But if he is of the rejecters , the erring ,

93 . Then the welcome will be boiling water

94 . And roasting at hell fire .

95 . Lo! this is certain truth .

96 . Therefor ( O Muhammad ) praise the name of thy Lord , the Tremendous .
