56: Al-Waqiah (الواقعة)

Audio Surah: AL-WAQIAH

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.
