Maulana Muhammad Ali rendition of Surah The Event, The Inevitable, That Which is Coming(al-Waqi`ah)
56:1 When the Event comes to pass -
56:2 There is no belying its coming to pass -
56:3 Abasing (some), exalting (others) -
56:4 When the earth is shaken with a (severe) shaking
56:5 And the mountains are crumbled to pieces
56:6 So they are as scattered dust
56:7 And you are three sorts
56:8 So those on the right hand; how (happy) are those on the right-hand
56:9 And those on the left; how (wretched) are those on the left
56:10 And the foremost are the foremost -
56:11 These are drawn nigh (to Allah)
56:12 In Gardens of blis
56:13 A multitude from among the first
56:14 And a few from among those of later times
56:15 On thrones inwrought
56:16 Reclining on them, facing each other
56:17 Round about them will go youths never altering in age
56:18 With goblets and ewers, and a cup of pure drink -
56:19 They are not affected with headache thereby, nor are they intoxicated
56:20 And fruits that they choose
56:21 And flesh of fowl that they desire
56:22 And pure, beautiful ones
56:23 Like to hidden pearls
56:24 A reward for what they did
56:25 They hear therein no vain or sinful talk -
56:26 But only the saying, Peace! Peace
56:27 And those on the right hand; how (happy) are those on the right hand
56:28 Amid thornless lote-trees
56:29 And clustered banana-trees
56:30 And extensive shade
56:31 And water gushing
56:32 And abundant fruit
56:33 Neither intercepted, nor forbidden
56:34 And exalted couches
56:35 Surely We have created them a (new) creation
56:36 So We have made them virgins
56:37 Loving, equals in age
56:38 For those on the right hand
56:39 A multitude from among the first
56:40 And a multitude from among those of later times
56:41 And those on the left hand; how (wretched) are those on the left hand
56:42 In hot wind and boiling water
56:43 And shadow of black smoke
56:44 Neither cool nor refreshing
56:45 Surely they lived before that in ease
56:46 And they persisted in the great violation
56:47 And they used to say: When we die and become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be rised
56:48 Or our fathers of yore
56:49 Say: The ancients and those of later time
56:50 Will surely be gathered together for the appointed hour of a known day
56:51 Then shall you, O you who err and deny
56:52 East of the tree of Zaqqum
56:53 And fill (your) bellies with it
56:54 Then drink after it of 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 accept
56:58 See you that which 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 overcome
56:61 That We may change your state and make you grow into what you know not
56:62 And certainly you know the first growth, why do you not then mind
56:63 See you what you sow
56:64 Is it you that cause it to grow, or are We the Causer of growth
56:65 If We pleased, We would make it chaff, then would you lament
56:66 Surely we are burdened with debt
56:67 Nay, we are deprived
56:68 See you the water which you drink
56:69 Do you bring it down from the clouds, or are We the Bringer
56:70 If We pleased, We could make it saltish; why give you not thanks
56:71 See you the fire which you kindle
56:72 Is it you that produce the trees for it, or are We the Producer
56:73 We have made it a reminder and an advantage for the wayfarers of the desert
56:74 So glorify the name of thy Lord, the Incomparably Great
56:75 But nay, I swear by revelation of portions (of the Qur’an)! -
56:76 And it is a great oath indeed, if you knew -
56:77 Surely it is a bounteous Qur’an
56:78 In a book that is protected
56:79 Which none touches save the purified ones
56:80 A revelation from the Lord of the worlds
56:81 Is it this announcement that you disdain
56:82 And make your denial your means of subsistence
56:83 Why is it not then that when it comes up to the throat
56:84 And you at that time look on -
56:85 And We are nearer to it than you, but you see not -
56:86 Why then, if you are not held under authority
56:87 Do you not send it back, if you are truthful
56:88 Then if he is one of those drawn nigh (to Allah)
56:89 Then happiness and bounty and a Garden of bliss
56:90 And if he is one of those on the right hand
56:91 Then peace to thee from those on the right hand
56:92 And if he is one of the rejectors, the erring ones
56:93 He has an entertainment of boiling water
56:94 And burning in hell
56:95 Surely this is a certain truth
56:96 So glorify the name of thy Lord, the Incomparably Great
