Muhammad Taqi Usmani rendition of Surah The Event, The Inevitable, That Which is Coming(al-Waqi`ah)
56:1 When the Imminent Event (of Doom) will occur
56:2 there will be no one to deny its occurrence
56:3 It will be abasing (some), exalting (others
56:4 when the earth will be jolted with a terrible jolt
56:5 and the mountains will be crumbled a thorough crumbling
56:6 until they will become dust, scattered in the air
56:7 and you will be (divided into) three categories
56:8 As for the People of the Right, how (lucky) are the People of the Right
56:9 And the People of the Left ? How (wretched) are the People of the Left
56:10 And the Foremost are the foremost
56:11 Those are the ones blessed with nearness (to Allah
56:12 in gardens of bliss
56:13 many from the first generations
56:14 and a few from the later ones
56:15 (They will be sitting) on thrones woven with gold
56:16 reclining on them, facing each other
56:17 Immortal boys will rotate around the
56:18 with bowls and jugs and a goblet of pure wine
56:19 from which they will neither suffer headache, nor will they be intoxicated
56:20 _and with fruits that they choose
56:21 and the flesh of birds that they desire
56:22 And (for them there will be) houris, having lovely big eyes
56:23 all (neat and clean) like a hidden pearl
56:24 as a reward for what they used to do
56:25 They will hear neither an absurd talk in it, nor something leading to sin
56:26 but (they will hear) the words of Salam , Salam (as greetings)
56:27 And the People of the right? How (lucky) are the People of the Right
56:28 (They will be) amid lote-trees with no thorns
56:29 and the trees of TalH , (banana, or a fragrant tree) having layers one upon the other
56:30 and a shade, spread all over
56:31 and water, poured forth
56:32 and a lot of fruits
56:33 neither interrupted (in any season), nor prohibited
56:34 and mattresses of high quality
56:35 Surely We have made up those females in a special creation
56:36 and have made them virgins
56:37 amorous to their husbands, matching them in age
56:38 for the People of the Right
56:39 (comprising) many from the first generations
56:40 and many from the later ones
56:41 And the People of the Left? How (wretched) are the People of the Left
56:42 (They will be) in scorching wind and boiling water
56:43 and in a shade of black smoke
56:44 neither cool nor graceful
56:45 They were earlier in luxuries
56:46 and used to persist in major sins
56:47 and used to say, .Is it that when we die and become dust__is it that we will be raised again
56:48 and our ancient fathers as well?
56:49 Say, .All the earlier and the later one
56:50 will be gathered together for a fixed time of a specified Day
56:51 Then O you, the erring, the denying people
56:52 you will have to eat from the tree of zaqqum
56:53 and to fill with it the bellies
56:54 then on top of it you will have to drink boiling water
56:55 and to drink like camels suffering from the disease of over-thirst
56:56 This will be their welcome entertainment on the Day of Requital
56:57 We have created you; then why do you not believe in it
56:58 So, tell Me about the semen you drop (in the wombs)
56:59 Is it you who create it, or are We the Creator
56:60 We have appointed (the times of) death among you, and We cannot be frustrate
56:61 from replacing you with others like you, and creating you (afresh) in that (form) which you do not know
56:62 And you certainly know the first creation; then why do you not take lesson
56:63 Well, tell Me about that (seed) which you sow
56:64 Is it you who grow it, or are We the One who grows
56:65 If We so will, We can certainly make it crumbled, and you will remain wondering
56:66 (and saying,) .We are laden with debt
56:67 rather we are totally deprived
56:68 Again, tell Me about the water you drink
56:69 Is it you who have brought it down from the clouds, or are We the One who sends (it) down
56:70 If We so will, We can make it bitter in taste. So why do you not offer gratitude
56:71 Now tell Me about the fire you kindle
56:72 Is it you who have originated its tree, or are We the Originator
56:73 We have made it a reminder (of Our infinite power, and of the fire of Hell) and a benefit for travelers in deserts
56:74 So, proclaim purity of the name of your Lord, the Magnificent
56:75 So, I swear by the setting places of the stars
56:76 __and indeed it is a great oath, if you are to appreciate_
56:77 it is surely the Noble Qur‘an
56:78 (recorded already) in a protected book (i.e. the Preserved Tablet
56:79 that is not touched except by the purified ones (the angels)
56:80 __ a revelation from the Lord of the worlds
56:81 Is it this discourse that you take lightly
56:82 and take your denial as your livelihood
56:83 So why (do you) not (intervene) when the soul (of a dying person) reaches the throat
56:84 and you are watching
56:85 And We are closer to him than you, but you do not perceive
56:86 So, if you are not going to be recompensed (in the Hereafter for your deeds), then why do you no
56:87 bring the soul back, if you are truthful
56:88 So, in case he (the dying person) is from among those blessed with nearness
56:89 then (for him) there is comfort and fragrance and garden of bliss
56:90 And in case he is from among the People of the Right
56:91 then, (it will be said to him,) .Peace is for you, as you are one of the People of the Right
56:92 But if he is one of the deniers, the astray
56:93 then (for him) there is entertainment from boiling water
56:94 and burning in the Hell
56:95 Indeed this is certainty in its true sense
56:96 So, proclaim purity of the name of your Lord, the Magnificent
