The Event (Al-Wâqi'ah)
In the name of
Allah, Gracious, Merciful.
1When the event inevitable comes to pass.
2Then will no soul entertain falsehood concerning its coming.
3Many will it bring low, many will it exalt.1
4When the earth shall be shaken to its depths.
5And the mountains shall be crumbled to atoms.
6Becoming dust scattered abroad
7And you shall be sorted out into three classes.
8Then the companions of the right hand, what will be the
companions of the right hand?
9And the companions of the left hand, what will be the companions
of the left hand?
10And those foremost will be foremost in the hereafter.
11These will be those nearest to Allah.
12In gardens of bliss.
13A number of people from those of old.
1Iza waqaatil waqiah
2Laisa liwaqatiha kazibah
4Iza rujatil ardu raja
5Ya busatil jibalu basa
6Fakanat haba ammun basa
7Wa kuntum azwajan salasah
8Fa as habul maimanati ma as habul maimanah
9Wa as habul mas amati ma ashabul mas amah
12Fi jannatin naim
13Sulatum minal aw walin
1. This is the Qur’anic version of many are
called but few are chosen.
14And a few from those of later times.
15They will be on thrones encrusted.
16Reclining on them facing each other.
17Round about them will serve youths of perpetual freshness.
18With goblets shining beakers and cups filled out of clear
19No after ache will they receive therefrom nor will they suffer
20And with fruits any that they may select;
21And the flesh of fowls any that they may desire.
22And there are fair ones with big and lustrous eyes
23Like unto pearls well guarded.
24A reward for the deeds of their past.
25No frivolity will they hear therein nor any taint of ill.
26Only the saying “Peace! Peace.”
14Wa qalilum minal akhirin
15Ala sururim maudunah
16Mutaki inna aliha mutaqabilin
17Yatufu alihim wildanum

24Jaza an bima kanu yamalun
25La yasmauna fiha lagwa wa la tasima
26Illa qilan salaman salaman
27The companions of the right hand, what will be the companions
of the right hand?
28They will be among lote trees without thorns.
29Among Talh trees with flowers piled one above another.
30In shade long extended.
31By water flowing constantly.
32And fruit in abundance.
33Whose season is not limited nor forbidden.
34And on thrones raised high.
35We have created their companions of special creation.
36And made them virgin pure.
37Beloved by nature equal in age.
38For the companions of the right hand.
39A number from those of old.
40And a number from those of later times.
41The companions of the left hand, what will be the companions of
the left hand?
42In the midst of a fierce blast of fire and in boiling water.
27Wa ashabul yamini ma ashabul yamin
28Fi sidrim makdud
29Wa talhim mandud
30Wa ma im maskub
31Wa ma im maskub

41Wa ashabusi simali ma ashabus simal
42Fi samumi wa hamim
43And in the shades of black smoke:
44Nothing to refresh nor to please:
45For that they were known to be indulged before that in wealth.
46And persisted obstinately in wickedness supreme!
47And they used to say “what! when we die and become dust and
bones shall we then indeed be raised up again?
48“We and our fathers of old?”
49Say: “Yea, those of old and those of later times.
50“All will certainly be gathered together for the meeting
appointed for a day well known.
51“Then will you truly, O you that go wrong and treat truth as
52“You will surely taste of the tree of zaqqum.
53“Then will you fill your insides therewith.
43Wa zillim miyahmum

54“And drink boiling water on top of it:
55“Indeed you shall drink like diseased camels raging with
56Such will be their entertainment on the day of requital!
57It is We who have created you: why will you not witness the
58Do you then see? What you throw out,
59Is it you who create it or are We are the creators?
60We have decreed death to be your common lot and We are not to
61From changing your forms and creating you in forms that you
62And you certainly know already the first form of creation: why
then do you not celebrate His praises?
54Fasyaribuna alaihi minal bamim
55Fasyaribuna surbal him
56Haza nuzuluhum yaumadin
57Nahnu halaqnakum falau la tusad diqun
58Afara aitum ma tumnun
59A antum takhluqunahu am nahnul haliqun
60Nahnu qad darna bainakumul mauta wa ma nahnu bimasbuqin
61Ala an nubadila am salakum wa nunsi akum fi ma la talamun
62Wa laqad alimtumun nas atal ula falau la taza karun
63Do you see the seed that you sow in the ground?
64Is it you that cause it to grow or are We are the cause?
65Were it Our will we could crumble it to dry powder and you
would be left in wonderment.
66“We are indeed left with debts:
67“Indeed are we shut out.”
68Do you see the water which you drink?
69Do you bring it down from the cloud or We do?
70Were it Our will We could make it salt: then why do you not
71Do you see the fire which you kindle?
72Is it you who grow the tree which feeds the fire or We do?
73We have made it a memorial and an article of comfort and
convenience for the denizens of deserts.
63Afara aitum ma tahrusun
64A antum tasraunahu am nahnu zariun
65Lau nasyau lajaalnahu hutaman fazhaltum tafak kahun
67Bal nahnu mahrumun
68Afara aitumul ma al lazi tasrabun

71Afara aitumun naral lati turun
72A antum ansyatum syajarataha am nahnul munsi un
73Nahnu jaalnaha tazkirataw wa ma taal lilmuqwin
74Then celebrate with praises the name of the Lord, the supreme:
75Furthermore, I call to witness the setting of the stars.
76And that is indeed a mighty adjuration, if you but knew.
77That this is indeed a Qur’an most honorable.
78In a book well guarded
79Which none shall touch but those who are clean:
80A revelation from the Lord of the worlds.
81Is it such a message that you would hold in light esteem?
82And have you made it your livelihood that you should declare it
83Then why do you not intervene when the soul of the dying man
reaches the throat.
84And you the while sit looking on.
85But We are nearer to him than you and yet see not.
74Fasab bih bismi rabbikal azim
75Fala uqsimu bimawaqiin nujum
76Wa in nahu laqaamul lau talamuna azim
77Innahu laquranun karim
78Fi kitabim maknun
79La yama suhu illal muta harun
80Tanzilum mirabbil alamin
81Afabihazal hadisi antum mud hinun
82Wa tajaluna rizqakum annakum tukazibun
83Falau la iza balaghatil hulqum
84Wa antum hina izin tanzhurun
85Wa nahnu aqrabu ilaihi minkum wa lakilla tubsirun
86Then why do you not if you are exempt from account.
87Call back the soul if you are true?
88Thus then if he be of those nearest to Allah.
89Rest and satisfaction and a garden of delights.
90And if he be of the companions of the right hand.
91“Peace be unto you” from the companions of the right hand.
92And if he be of those who treat truth as falsehood who go
93For him is entertainment with boiling water.
94And burning in hell fire.
95Verily, this is the very truth and certainty.
96So celebrate with praises the name of your Lord, the supreme.
