Ayat 4 - When the earth is shaken up convulsively,
Ayat 5 - The mountains bruised and crushed,
Ayat 6 - Turned to dust, floating in the air,
Ayat 7 - You will become three categories:
Ayat 8 - Those of the right hand -- how (happy) will be those of the right hand!
Ayat 9 - Then those of the left hand -- how (unhappy) will be those of the left hand!
Ayat 10 - Then the foremost, how pre-excellent,
Ayat 11 - Who will be honoured
Ayat 12 - In gardens of tranquility;
Ayat 13 - A number of the earlier peoples,
Ayat 14 - And a few of later ages,
Ayat 15 - On couches wrought of gold,
Ayat 16 - Reclining face to face.
Ayat 17 - Youths of never-ending bloom will pass round to them
Ayat 18 - Cups and decanters, beakers full of sparkling wine,
Ayat 19 - Unheady, uninebriating;
Ayat 20 - And such fruits as they fancy,
Ayat 21 - Bird meats that they relish,
Ayat 22 - And companions with big beautiful eyes
Ayat 23 - Like pearls within their shells,
Ayat 24 - As recompense for all they had done.
Ayat 25 - They will hear no nonsense there or talk of sin,

Ayat 30 - Lengthened shadows,
Ayat 31 - Gushing water,
Ayat 32 - And fruits numberless,
Ayat 33 - Unending, unforbidden,
Ayat 34 - And maidens incomparable.
Ayat 35 - We have formed them in a distinctive fashion,
Ayat 36 - And made them virginal,
Ayat 37 - Loving companions matched in age,
Ayat 38 - For those of the right hand.
Ayat 39 - A crowd of earlier generations
Ayat 40 - And a crowd of the later.
Ayat 41 - But those of the left hand -- how (unhappy) those of the left hand --
Ayat 42 - Will be in the scorching wind and boiling water,
Ayat 43 - Under the shadow of thick black smoke
Ayat 44 - Neither cool nor agreeable.
Ayat 45 - They were endowed with good things
Ayat 46 - But persisted in that greater sin,
Ayat 47 - And said: "What! When we are dead and turned to dust and bones, shall we then be raised again?

Ayat 52 - Will eat of the tree of Zaqqum,
Ayat 53 - Fill your bellies with it,
Ayat 54 - And drink over it scalding water,
Ayat 55 - Lapping it up like female camels raging of thirst with disease."
Ayat 56 - Such will be their welcome on the Day of Judgement.

Ayat 61 - From replacing you with others or raising you in a way you do not know.
Ayat 62 - You have known the first creation, then why do you not reflect?
Ayat 63 - Just ponder over what you sow:
Ayat 64 - Do you give it its increase, or are We the giver?
Ayat 65 - We could turn it, if We pleased, into straw; then you would rue the day,
Ayat 66 - (And say:) "We have fallen into debt;
