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.

Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim

1Iza waqaatil waqiah

2Laisa liwaqatiha kazibah

3Kafidatu rafiah

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

10Wasabiqunas sabiqun

11Ulaikal muqarabun

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 flowing fountains:

19No after ache will they receive therefrom nor will they suffer intoxication:

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

18Bi akwabi wa abariqi wa kasim mim main

19La yushadauna anha wala yunzifun

20Wa fakihatim mim ma yatakha yarun

21Wa lahmi tairim mim ma yastahun

22Wa hurun in

23Ka amsalil lu lu ilmaknun

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

32Wa fakihatin katsirah

33La maqtuati wa la mamnuah

34Wa furusim marfuah

35Inna ansyanahun na insaa

36Fajaalnahun na abkara

37Uruban atraba

38Li ashabil yamin

39Sulatum minal awalin

40Wa sulatum minal akhirin

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 falsehood!

52“You will surely taste of the tree of zaqqum.

53“Then will you fill your insides therewith.

43Wa zillim miyahmum

44La baridi wa la karim

45Innahum kanu qabla zalika mutrafin

46Wa kanu yushiruna alal hinsil azhim

47Wa kanu yaquluna a iza mitna wa kunna turaba wa izaman a inna lamabusun

48Awa aba unal awalun

49Qul innal awalina walakhirin

50Lamajmuuna ila miqati yaumim malum

51Summa innakum ayuhad dalunal mukazibun

52La akiluna minsajarim minzaqum

53Famali una minhal buthun

54“And drink boiling water on top of it:

55“Indeed you shall drink like diseased camels raging with thirst!

56Such will be their entertainment on the day of requital!

57It is We who have created you: why will you not witness the truth?

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 be frustrated.

61From changing your forms and creating you in forms that you know not.

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 give thanks?

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

66Inna lamughramun

67Bal nahnu mahrumun

68Afara aitumul ma al lazi tasrabun

69A antum anzaltumuhu minal muzni am nahnul munzilun

70Lau nasyau jaalnahu ujajan falau la taskurun

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 false?

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 wrong.

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.

86Falau la inkuntum gaira madinin

87Tarjiunaha inkuntum sadiqin

88Fa amma in kana minal muqar rabin

89Farauhuw wa raihanuw wa janatu naim

90Wa amma inkana minashabil yamin

91Fasalamul laka minashabil yamin

92Wa amma inkana minal mukazibinad dallin

93Fanuzulum minhamim

94Wa tasliyatu jahim

95Inna haza lahuwa haqqul yaqin

96Fasab bih bismi rabbikal azim
