RECITATION BY: Saud Al-Shuraim Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais Abdulbasit Abdussamad Mahmoud Khalil Al-Husary Mishary bin Rashid Al-Afasy Maher Al-Muaiqly Sa'ad Al-Ghamdi Al-Waqi'a (Arabic: سورة الواقعة; Sūrat al-Wāqiʻah; "The Inevitable" or "The Event") is the 56th surah (chapter) of the Quran. It was revealed in Mecca (see Meccan surah). The total number of verses in this surah are 96. It mainly discusses the afterlife according to Islam, and the different fates people will face in it. According to Quranic commentators, the chapter is a Meccan sura, that is, it was revealed during the Meccan period of Muhammad's prophethood. Some commentators, although not in the majority, argue that part of it was revealed during the Medinan period. ***According to a hadith, Muhammad was reported to say that whoever recites Al-Waqi'a every night "shall never be afflicted by need". For this reason, the chapter is one of the most recited of the Quran.*** The Afterlife (akhirah) is the main topic discussed in the chapter. Picking up from the preceding chapter, Ar-Rahman, which discusses the rewards of Paradise (jannah), this chapter also mentions them and then contrasts them with the punishment of hell. The chapter also distinguish the three classes of people in the afterlife, "the foremost", "the companions of the right" and "the companions of the left". According to chapter, the first two groups will enter paradise while the companions of the left will go to hell. Here, "the right" is associated with goodness, the righteous will be seated to the right of God's throne and receive their records of deeds in their right hand.
