Yusuf Ali (Saudi Rev. 1985) rendition of Surah The Event, The Inevitable, That Which is Coming(al-Waqi`ah)
56:1 When the Event inevitable cometh to pass
56:2 Then will no (soul) entertain falsehood concerning its coming
56:3 (Many) will it bring low; (many) will it exalt
56:4 When the earth shall be shaken to its depths
56:5 And the mountains shall be crumbled to atoms
56:6 Becoming dust scattered abroad
56:7 And ye shall be sorted out into three classes
56:8 Then (there will be) the Companions of the Right Hand;- What will be the Companions of the Right Hand
56:9 And the Companions of the Left Hand,- what will be the Companions of the Left Hand
56:10 And those Foremost (in Faith) will be Foremost (in the Hereafter)
56:11 These will be those Nearest to Allah
56:12 In Gardens of Bliss
56:13 A number of people from those of old
56:14 And a few from those of later times
56:15 (They will be) on Thrones encrusted (with gold and precious stones)
56:16 Reclining on them, facing each other
56:17 Round about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness)
56:18 With goblets, (shining) beakers, and cups (filled) out of clear-flowing fountains
56:19 No after-ache will they receive therefrom, nor will they suffer intoxication
56:20 And with fruits, any that they may select
56:21 And the flesh of fowls, any that they may desire
56:22 And (there will be) Companions with beautiful, big, and lustrous eyes,
56:23 Like unto Pearls well-guarded
56:24 A Reward for the deeds of their past (life)
56:25 Not frivolity will they hear therein, nor any taint of ill,
56:26 Only the saying, "Peace! Peace"
56:27 The Companions of the Right Hand,- what will be the Companions of the Right Hand
56:28 (They will be) among Lote-trees without thorns
56:29 Among Talh trees with flowers (or fruits) piled one above another,
56:30 In shade long-extended
56:31 By water flowing constantly
56:32 And fruit in abundance
56:33 Whose season is not limited, nor (supply) forbidden
56:34 And on Thrones (of Dignity), raised high
56:35 We have created (their Companions) of special creation
56:36 And made them virgin - pure (and undefiled),
56:37 Beloved (by nature), equal in age,
56:38 For the Companions of the Right Hand
56:39 A (goodly) number from those of old
56:40 And a (goodly) number from those of later times
56:41 The Companions of the Left Hand,- what will be the Companions of the Left Hand
56:42 (They will be) in the midst of a Fierce Blast of Fire and in Boiling Water
56:43 And in the shades of Black Smoke
56:44 Nothing (will there be) to refresh, nor to please
56:45 For that they were wont to be indulged, before that, in wealth (and luxury)
56:46 And persisted obstinately in wickedness supreme
56:47 And they used to say, "What! when we die and become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be raised up again?
56:48 "(We) and our fathers of old?"
56:49 Say: "Yea, those of old and those of later times
56:50 "All will certainly be gathered together for the meeting appointed for a Day well-known
56:51 "Then will ye truly,- O ye that go wrong, and treat (Truth) as Falsehood!
56:52 "Ye will surely taste of the Tree of Zaqqum
56:53 "Then will ye fill your insides therewith
56:54 "And drink Boiling Water on top of it
56:55 "Indeed ye shall drink like diseased camels raging with thirst!"
56:56 Such will be their entertainment on the Day of Requital
56:57 It is We Who have created you: why will ye not witness the Truth
56:58 Do ye then see?- The (human Seed) that ye throw out,
56:59 Is it ye who create it, or are We the Creators
56:60 We have decreed Death to be your common lot, and We are not to be frustrate
56:61 from changing your Forms and creating you (again) in (forms) that ye know not
56:62 And ye certainly know already the first form of creation: why then do ye not celebrate His praises
56:63 See ye the seed that ye sow in the ground
56:64 Is it ye that cause it to grow, or are We the Cause
56:65 Were it Our Will, We could crumble it to dry powder, and ye would be left in wonderment
56:66 (Saying), "We are indeed left with debts (for nothing)
56:67 "Indeed are we shut out (of the fruits of our labour)"
56:68 See ye the water which ye drink
56:69 Do ye bring it down (in rain) from the cloud or do We
56:70 Were it Our Will, We could make it salt (and unpalatable): then why do ye not give thanks
56:71 See ye the Fire which ye kindle
56:72 Is it ye who grow the tree which feeds the fire, or do We grow it
56:73 We have made it a memorial (of Our handiwork), and an article of comfort and convenience for the denizens of deserts
56:74 Then celebrate with praises the name of thy Lord, the Supreme
56:75 Furthermore I call to witness the setting of the Stars,
56:76 And that is indeed a mighty adjuration if ye but knew,
56:77 That this is indeed a qur'an Most Honourable
56:78 In Book well-guarded
56:79 Which none shall touch but those who are clean
56:80 A Revelation from the Lord of the Worlds
56:81 Is it such a Message that ye would hold in light esteem
56:82 And have ye made it your livelihood that ye should declare it false
56:83 Then why do ye not (intervene) when (the soul of the dying man) reaches the throat,
56:84 And ye the while (sit) looking on,
56:85 But We are nearer to him than ye, and yet see not,
56:86 Then why do ye not,- If you are exempt from (future) account,
56:87 Call back the soul, if ye are true (in the claim of independence)
56:88 Thus, then, if he be of those Nearest to Allah
56:89 (There is for him) Rest and Satisfaction, and a Garden of Delights
56:90 And if he be of the Companions of the Right Hand
56:91 (For him is the salutation), "Peace be unto thee", from the Companions of the Right Hand
56:92 And if he be of those who treat (Truth) as Falsehood, who go wrong
56:93 For him is Entertainment with Boiling Water
56:94 And burning in Hell-Fire
56:95 Verily, this is the Very Truth and Certainly
56:96 So celebrate with praises the name of thy Lord, the Supreme
