56: Al-Waqiah (الواقعة)
1: When the great event comes to pass,
2: There is no belying its coming to pass--
3: Abasing (one party), exalting (the other),
4: When the earth shall be shaken with a (severe) shaking,
5: And the mountains shall be made to crumble with (an awful) crumbling,
6: So that they shall be as scattered dust.
7: And you shall be three sorts.
8: Then (as to) the companions of the right hand; how happy are the companions of the right hand!
9: And (as to) the companions of the left hand; how wretched are the companions of the left hand!
10: And the foremost are the foremost,
11: These are they who are drawn nigh (to Allah),
12: In the gardens of bliss.
13: A numerous company from among the first,
14: And a few from among the latter.
15: On thrones decorated,
16: Reclining on them, facing one another.
17: Round about them shall go youths never altering in age,
18: With goblets and ewers and a cup of pure drink;
19: They shall not be affected with headache thereby, nor shall they get exhausted,
20: And fruits such as they choose,
21: And the flesh of fowl such as they desire.
22: And pure, beautiful ones,
23: The like of the hidden pearls:
24: A reward for what they used to do.
25: They shall not hear therein vain or sinful discourse,
26: Except the word peace, peace.
27: And the companions of the right hand; how happy are the companions of the right hand!
28: Amid thornless lote-trees,
29: And banana-trees (with fruits), one above another.
30: And extended shade,
31: And water flowing constantly,
32: And abundant fruit,
33: Neither intercepted nor forbidden,
34: And exalted thrones.
35: Surely We have made them to grow into a (new) growth,
36: Then We have made them virgins,
37: Loving, equals in age,
38: For the sake of the companions of the right hand.
39: A numerous company from among the first,
40: And a numerous company from among the last.
41: And those of the left hand, how wretched are those of the left hand!
42: In hot wind and boiling water,
43: And the shade of black smoke,
44: Neither cool nor honorable.
45: Surely they were before that made to live in ease and plenty.
46: And they persisted in the great violation.
47: And they used to say: What! when we die and have become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be raised?
48: Or our fathers of yore?
49: Say: The first and the last,
50: Shall most surely be gathered together for the appointed hour of a known day.
51: Then shall you, O you who err and call it a lie!
52: Most surely eat of a tree of Zaqqoom,
53: And fill (your) bellies with it;
54: Then drink over it of boiling water;
55: And drink as drinks the thirsty camel.
56: This is their entertainment on the day of requital.
57: We have created you, why do you not then assent?
58: Have you considered the seed?
59: Is it you that create it or are We the creators?
60: We have ordained death among you and We are not to be overcome,
61: In order that We may bring in your place the likes of you and make you grow into what you know not.
62: And certainly you know the first growth, why do you not then mind?
63: Have you considered what you sow?
64: Is it you that cause it to grow, or are We the causers of growth?
65: If We pleased, We should have certainly made it broken down into pieces, then would you begin tb lament:
66: Surely we are burdened with debt:
67: Nay! we are deprived.
68: Have you considered the water which you drink?
69: Is it you that send it down from the clouds, or are We the senders?
70: If We pleased, We would have made it salty; why do you not then give thanks?
71: Have you considered the fire which you strike?
72: Is it you that produce the trees for it, or are We the producers?
73: We have made it a reminder and an advantage for the wayfarers of the desert.
74: Therefore glorify the name of your Lord, the Great.
75: But nay! I swear by the falling of stars;
76: And most surely it is a very great oath if you only knew;
77: Most surely it is an honored Quran,
78: In a book that is protected
79: None shall touch it save the purified ones.
80: A revelation by the Lord of the worlds.
81: Do you then hold this announcement in contempt?
82: And to give (it) the lie you make your means of subsistence.
83: Why is it not then that when it (soul) comes up to the throat,
84: And you at that time look on--
85: And We are nearer to it than you, but you do not see--
86: Then why is it not-- if you are not held under authority--
87: That you send it (not) back-- if you are truthful?
88: Then if he is one of those drawn nigh (to Allah),
89: Then happiness and bounty and a garden of bliss.
90: And if he is one of those on the right hand,
91: Then peace to you from those on the right hand.
92: And if he is one of the rejecters, the erring ones,
93: He shall have an entertainment of boiling water,
94: And burning in hell.
95: Most surely this is a certain truth.
96: Therefore glorify the name of your Lord, the Great.
