Farook Malik rendition of Surah The Event, The Inevitable, That Which is Coming(al-Waqi`ah)
56:1 When the inevitable event will come to pas
56:2 - no one will be able to deny its coming to pas
56:3 - then some shall be abased and some exalted
56:4 The earth shall be shaken with severe shakin
56:5 and the mountains shall be made to crumble with awful crumblin
56:6 and become like scattered dust
56:7 Then you shall be divided into three groups
56:8 those on the right hand - how blessed shall be the people of the right hand
56:9 those on the left hand - how damned shall be the people of the left hand
56:10 and foremost shall be the foremost
56:11 They will be nearest to Allah
56:12 in the gardens of bliss
56:13 Most of them will be from the forme
56:14 and a few from the later generations
56:15 They shall have the jewelled couches
56:16 reclining on them facing each other
56:17 and there shall wait on them the eternal youth
56:18 with goblets, shining beakers and cups of pure wine
56:19 - which will neither pain their heads nor take away their senses
56:20 They shall have fruits of their own choic
56:21 and flesh of fowls that they may desire
56:22 and dark eyed Huris (damsels)
56:23 as lovely as well guarded pearl
56:24 as a reward for their good deeds that they had done
56:25 There they shall not hear any vain talk nor sinful words
56:26 but only the greetings of "Peace be upon you! Peace be upon you!"
56:27 Those of the right hand - happy shall be those on the right hand
56:28 They shall be among the thornless lote trees
56:29 clusters of bananas
56:30 extended thick shades
56:31 constantly flowing water
56:32 abundant fruit
56:33 of unforbidden never ending supply
56:34 and will be reclining on high raised couches
56:35 We shall create their wives of special creatio
56:36 and make them virgin
56:37 beloved by nature, equal in age
56:38 for those of the right hand
56:39 Many of them will be from the forme
56:40 and many from the later generations
56:41 As for those of the left hand - how unfortunate will be the people of the left hand
56:42 They will be in the midst of scorching winds and in boiling water
56:43 in the shade of a pitch-black smoke
56:44 neither cool nor refreshing
56:45 For they lived in comfort before meeting this fate
56:46 They persisted in heinous sin
56:47 and used to say: "When we are dead and turned to dust and bones, shall we then be raised to life again
56:48 And our forefathers, too?"
56:49 Tell them: "Surely those of old and those of present ag
56:50 shall certainly be brought together on an appointed time of a known Day
56:51 Then, "O the mistaken rejecters
56:52 you shall eat of the Zaqqum tree
56:53 and fill your bellies with it
56:54 and drink on top of it scalding water
56:55 yet you shall drink it like a thirsty camel."
56:56 Such will be their entertainment on the Day of Reckoning
56:57 We have created you: will you not then testify about Our power of creation
56:58 Have you ever considered the semen you discharge
56:59 Is it you who create the child from it, or are We the Creator
56:60 It is We Who have ordained death among you and We are not helples
56:61 in replacing you by others like yourselves or transforming you into beings that you do not know
56:62 You already know well your first creation, why then do you not take heed
56:63 Have you ever considered the seed that you sow in the ground
56:64 Is it you who cause it to grow or are We the grower
56:65 If it be Our Will, We could crumble your harvest into chaff, and you would then be left in lamenting
56:66 We are indeed left laden with debts
56:67 indeed we have been deprived from the fruits of our labor
56:68 Have you ever considered the water which you drink
56:69 Is it you who send it down from the clouds or are We the sender
56:70 If it be Our Will, We could turn it salty. Why then do you not give thanks
56:71 Have you ever considered the fire that you kindle
56:72 Is it you who grow the tree which feeds the fire or are We the grower
56:73 We have made it a reminder for man as to what would be the life without it, and a provision of life for the travellers of desert
56:74 So glorify the name of your Lord, Who is the Greatest
56:75 I swear by the setting of the stars
56:76 and it is indeed a mighty oath if you but knew it
56:77 that this is indeed a Glorious Qur’an
56:78 inscribed in a well-guarded Book
56:79 which none can touch except the purified (angels)
56:80 a revelation from the Lord of the worlds
56:81 Would you scorn a scripture such as thi
56:82 and make it’s denying a means of your livelihood
56:83 Why is it not then that when you see a dying person’s soul come up to his throa
56:84 while you are helplessly watchin
56:85 - and at that time We are nearer to him than you, although you cannot see Us
56:86 Then why do you not - if you claim you are not subject to reckonin
56:87 - restore to the dying person his soul? Answer this, if what you say be true
56:88 Then if the dying person is one of those near to Us
56:89 for him there is comfort and bounty, and a garden of bliss
56:90 And if he be one of the right hand
56:91 he is greeted with salutation: "Peace be upon you," from those of the right hand
56:92 And if he is one of the mistaken rejecters
56:93 he is welcomed with scalding water
56:94 and burning in hellfire
56:95 Surely this is an absolute truth
56:96 Therefore, glorify the name of your Lord, Who is the Greatest
