Say, [O Muúammad], |Indeed, the former and the later peoples
Are to be gathered together for the appointment of a known Day.
There will circulate among them young boys made eternal
With vessels, pitchers and a cup [of wine] from a flowing spring -
No headache will they have therefrom, nor will they be intoxicated -
And fruit of what they select
And the meat of fowl, from whatever they desire.
And [for them are] fair women with large, [beautiful] eyes,
The likenesses of pearls well-protected,
As reward for what they used to do.
And [banana] trees layered [with fruit]
And shade extended
And water poured out
And fruit, abundant [and varied],
Neither limited [to season] nor forbidden,
And [upon] beds raised high.
Indeed, We have produced the women of Paradise in a [new] creation
And made them virgins,
Devoted [to their husbands] and of equal age,
For the companions of the right [who are]
They will not hear therein ill speech or commission of sin -
Only a saying: |Peace, peace.
Neither cool nor beneficial.
And they used to say, |When we die and become dust and bones, are we indeed to be resurrected?
And our forefathers [as well]?|
The companions of the right - what are the companions of the right?
[They will be] among lote trees with thorns removed
A company of the former peoples
And a company of the later peoples.
And the companions of the left - what are the companions of the left?
[They will be] in scorching fire and scalding water
And a shade of black smoke,
Indeed they were, before that, indulging in affluence,
And they used to persist in the great violation,
