On thrones, watching.

You will recognise the freshness of serenity on their faces.
25 يُسْقَوْنَ مِن رَّحِيقٍ مَّخْتُومٍ
They will be given pure wine to drink, which is kept preserved, sealed.
26 خِتَامُهُ مِسْكٌ ۚ وَفِي ذَٰلِكَ فَلْيَتَنَافَسِ الْمُتَنَافِسُونَ
Its seal is upon musk; and for this should those who crave be eager.
27 وَمِزَاجُهُ مِن تَسْنِيمٍ
And it is mixed with Tasneem.
28 عَيْنًا يَشْرَبُ بِهَا الْمُقَرَّبُونَ
The spring from which drink the ones close to Allah.

Indeed the guilty used to laugh at the believers.

And when the believers used to pass by, they used to gesture at each other with their eyes.

And whilst returning to their homes, they used to return rejoicing.
32 وَإِذَا رَأَوْهُمْ قَالُوا إِنَّ هَٰؤُلَاءِ لَضَالُّونَ
And upon seeing the Muslims, they used to say, “Indeed they have gone astray.”
33 وَمَا أُرْسِلُوا عَلَيْهِمْ حَافِظِينَ
Whereas they have not at all been sent as guardians over them.
34 فَالْيَوْمَ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنَ الْكُفَّارِ يَضْحَكُونَ
So this day it is the believers who laugh at the disbelievers.
35 عَلَى الْأَرَائِكِ يَنظُرُونَ
On high thrones, watching.
36 هَلْ ثُوِّبَ الْكُفَّارُ مَا كَانُوا يَفْعَلُونَ
Did not the disbelievers get repaid for what they used to do?
