Hamid S. Aziz rendition of Surah The Event, The Inevitable, That Which is Coming(al-Waqi`ah)
56:1 When the Inevitable Event comes to pass
56:2 There is no denying that it will come
56:3 Abasing some, exalting others
56:4 When the earth shall be shaken to its foundations
56:5 And the mountains shall be crumbled
56:6 So that they shall be as scattered dust
56:7 And you shall be sorted into three classes
56:8 First the companions of the right hand - what will be the companions of the right hand
56:9 And then the companions of the left hand - what will be the companions of the left hand
56:10 And those foremost (in faith) will be the foremost (in the Hereafter)
56:11 These are they who are drawn nigh (to Allah)
56:12 In the Gardens of Bliss
56:13 A multitude of those of old
56:14 And a few of those of later times
56:15 On thrones decorated
56:16 Reclining on them, facing one another
56:17 Round about them shall serve youths of permanent freshness (immortal or never altering in age)
56:18 With goblets and ewers and a cup filled from a pure fountain
56:19 They shall not suffer with headache thereby, nor shall they get intoxicated (or exhausted)
56:20 And fruits such as they choose
56:21 And the flesh of fowl and any as they desire
56:22 And pure, beautiful companions
56:23 The like of the well-preserved pearls
56:24 A reward for what they used to do
56:25 They shall not hear therein vain or sinful discourse
56:26 Except the saying, "Peace! Peace!"
56:27 And the companions of the right hand; what of the companions of the Right Hand
56:28 Amid thornless Lote-trees
56:29 And tall trees with clusters of flowers (or fruits) one above another
56:30 And spreading shade
56:31 And water flowing constantly
56:32 And abundant fruit
56:33 Neither intercepted nor forbidden
56:34 And exalted thrones
56:35 Surely We have created them into a new creation
56:36 And made them virgins pure
56:37 Loving friends, equals in age
56:38 For the sake of the companions of the right hand
56:39 A multitude of those of old
56:40 And a multitude of those of later times
56:41 And those of the left hand; what of those of the Left Hand
56:42 In hot wind and boiling water
56:43 And the shade of black smoke
56:44 Neither cool nor honourable
56:45 Surely they were before this made to live in ease and plenty
56:46 And they persisted in the great violation (or great sin)
56:47 And they used to say, "What! When we die and have become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be raised
56:48 "Or our fathers of yore?"
56:49 Say, "The first and the last
56:50 "Shall most surely be gathered together for the appointed hour of a known day
56:51 "Then shall you, O you who err and call it a lie
56:52 "Most surely eat of a tree of Zaqqum
56:53 "And fill your bellies therewith
56:54 "Then drink over it boiling water
56:55 "And drink as drinks the thirsty camel."
56:56 This is their entertainment on the Day of Requital
56:57 We have created you, why do you not then assent
56:58 Have you considered the seed (or what you emit)
56:59 Is it you that create it or are We the creators
56:60 We have ordained death among you and We are not to be frustrated
56:61 That We may transfigure you and make you grow into what you know not
56:62 And certainly you know the first growth, why do you not then reflect
56:63 Have you considered what you sow
56:64 Is it you that cause it to grow, or are We the cause
56:65 If We willed, We could crumble it to powder, then would you lament
56:66 "Surely we are burdened with debt
56:67 "Nay! We are deprived."
56:68 Have you considered the water which you drink
56:69 Is it you that send it down from the clouds, or are We the senders
56:70 If We willed, We could have made it salty; why do you not then give thanks
56:71 Have you considered the fire which you strike
56:72 Is it you that produce the trees for it, or are We the producers
56:73 We have made it a reminder and a convenience for the dwellers of the deserts
56:74 Therefore, glorify the name of your Lord, the Supreme
56:75 But nay! I swear by the setting (or falling or fading) of stars
56:76 And most surely it is a very great oath if you only knew
56:77 Most surely it is an honoured Quran
56:78 In a book that is protecte
56:79 None shall touch it save the purified ones
56:80 A revelation by the Lord of the worlds
56:81 Do you then hold this announcement in contempt
56:82 And make denial of it your means of subsistence
56:83 Why then do you not (intervene) when the soul comes up to the throat (of a dying person)
56:84 And you the while look on
56:85 And We are nearer to it (the soul) than you, but you see not
56:86 Then why, if you are not under Our authority
56:87 Force back (the soul), if you are truthful (about your independence)
56:88 Then if he is one of those Near to Allah
56:89 (There is for him) Satisfaction and Bounty and a Garden of Bliss
56:90 And if he is one of those on the Right Hand
56:91 Then (the salutation) "Peace to you" from the companions of the Right Hand
56:92 And if he is one of the rejecters, the erring ones
56:93 He shall have an entertainment of boiling water
56:94 And burning in Hell
56:95 Most surely this is a certain truth (or the Truth of Certainty)
56:96 Therefore glorify the name of your Lord, the Supreme
