إِذَا وَقَعَتِ الْوَاقِعَةُ
WHEN THAT which must come to pass [at last] comes to pass, (1)
لَيْسَ لِوَقْعَتِهَا كَاذِبَةٌ
there will be nought that could give the lie to its having come to pass, (2)
خَافِضَةٌ رَافِعَةٌ
abasing [some], exalting [others]! (3)
إِذَا رُجَّتِ الْأَرْضُ رَجًّا
When the earth is shaken with a shaking [severe], (4)
وَبُسَّتِ الْجِبَالُ بَسًّا
and the mountains are shattered into [countless] shards, (5)
فَكَانَتْ هَبَاءً مُنْبَثًّا
so that they become as scattered dust – (6)
وَكُنْتُمْ أَزْوَاجًا ثَلَاثَةً
[on that Day,] then, shall you be [divided into] three kinds. (7)
فَأَصْحَابُ الْمَيْمَنَةِ مَا أَصْحَابُ الْمَيْمَنَةِ
Thus, there shall be such as will have attained to what is right: oh, how [happy] will be they who have attained to what is right! (8)
وَأَصْحَابُ الْمَشْأَمَةِ مَا أَصْحَابُ الْمَشْأَمَةِ
And there shall be such as will have lost themselves in evil: oh, how [unhappy] will be they who have lost themselves in evil! (9)
وَالسَّابِقُونَ السَّابِقُونَ
But the foremost shall be [they who in life were] the foremost [in faith and good works]: (10)
