[Waqia`h 56:7] And you will become divided into three categories.

[Waqia`h 56:8] So those on the right how (fortunate) are those on the right!

[Waqia`h 56:9] And those on the left how (wretched) are those on the left!

[Waqia`h 56:10] And those who surpassed have indeed excelled.

[Waqia`h 56:11] It is they who are the close ones.

[Waqia`h 56:15] On studded thrones.

[Waqia`h 56:16] Reclining on them, facing each other.
