IN the name of the merciful and compassionate God.When the inevitable happens; none shall call its
When the earth shall quake, quaking! and the mountains
shall crumble, crumbling, and become like motes dispersed!And ye shall be three sorts;
And the fellows of the right hand-what right luckyfellows!
And the fellows of the left hand-what unlucky fellows!And the foremost foremost!
And gold-weft couches, reclining on them face to face.
Around them shall go eternal youths, with goblets and ewers and a cup of flowing wine; no headache shall they feel therefrom, nor shall their wits be dimmed!And fruits such as they deem the best;
And bright and large-eyed maids like hidden pearls;A reward for that which they have done!
And the fellows of the right-what right lucky fellows!Amid thornless lote trees.
And fruit in abundance, neither failing nor forbidden;And beds upraised!
(with their spouses) for the fellows of the right!
A crowd of those of yore, and a crowd of those of thelatter day!
Verily, they were affluent ere this, and did persist in
mighty crime; and used to say, 'What, when we die and have become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be raised? or our fathers of yore?'
Say, 'Verily, those of yore and those of the latter day
shall surely be gathered together unto the tryst of the well-known day.'
Then ye, O ye who err! who say it is a lie! shall eat of
the Zaqqum tree! and fill your bellies with it! and drink thereon of boiling water! and drink as drinks the thirsty camel.This is their entertainment on the judgment day!
forestalled from making the likes of you in exchange, or producing you as ye know not of.
Ye do know the first production-why then do ye not mind?Have ye considered what ye till?
Do ye make it bear seed, or do we make it bear seed?
If we pleased we could make it mere grit, so that yewould pause to marvel:
'Verily,we have got into debt and we are excluded.'Have ye considered the water which ye drink?
Do ye make it come down from the clouds, or do we makeit come down?
If we pleased we could make it pungent-why then do yenot give thanks?
So I will not swear by the positions of the stars; and,
verily, it is a grand oath if ye did but know-that, verily, this is the honourable Koran- in the laid-up Book!Let none touch it but the purified!
And make for your provision, that you call it a lie?
Why then-when it comes up to the throat, and ye at that time look on, though we are nearer to him than you are, but ye cannot see,- why, if ye are not to be judged, do ye not send it back, if ye do tell the truth?
But either, if he be of those brought nigh to God,- then rest and fragrance and the garden of pleasure!
Or, if he be of the fellows of the right! then 'Peace to thee!' from the fellows of the right!
Or, if he be of those who say it is a lie,-who err! Then an entertainment of boiling water! and broiling in hell!Verily, this is surely certain truth!
