The surah that opens by naming the occurrence of the end of time with the title, The Imminent; for all who deny that it is coming will never believe it when finally it happens. It takes its name from verse 1, which mentions "the Imminent Hour" (al-wāqiʿah) i.e., the Day of Resurrection. The surah whose central message is stated in its opening verses: the Day of Judgement is inevitable and it will sort people into the humiliated and the richly rewarded. As in the previous surah, people are divided into three classes: those brought near to God (the best of the believers), those on the right (the ordinary believers), and those on the left (the disbelievers). Ample proof is given of God’s power and consequently His ability to bring about the Resurrection (verse 57 ff.).
The surah is also known as That Which is Coming, The Indisputable Event, The Inevitable, The Inevitable Event, The Occurrence, The Terror
