Talal A. Itani (new translation) rendition of Surah The Event, The Inevitable, That Which is Coming(al-Waqi`ah)
56:1 When the inevitable occurs
56:2 Of its occurrence, there is no denial
56:3 Bringing low, raising high
56:4 When the earth is shaken with a shock
56:5 And the mountains are crushed and crumbled
56:6 And they become scattered dust
56:7 And you become three classes
56:8 Those on the Right—what of those on the Right
56:9 And those on the Left—what of those on the Left
56:10 And the forerunners, the forerunners
56:11 Those are the nearest
56:12 In the Gardens of Bliss
56:13 A throng from the ancients
56:14 And a small band from the latecomers
56:15 On luxurious furnishings
56:16 Reclining on them, facing one another
56:17 Serving them will be immortalized youth
56:18 With cups, pitchers, and sparkling drinks
56:19 Causing them neither headache, nor intoxication
56:20 And fruits of their choice
56:21 And meat of birds that they may desire
56:22 And lovely companions
56:23 The likenesses of treasured pearls
56:24 As a reward for what they used to do
56:25 Therein they will hear no nonsense, and no accusations
56:26 But only the greeting: 'Peace, peace.'
56:27 And those on the Right—what of those on the Right
56:28 In lush orchards
56:29 And sweet-smelling plants
56:30 And extended shade
56:31 And outpouring water
56:32 And abundant fruit
56:33 Neither withheld, nor forbidden
56:34 And uplifted mattresses
56:35 We have created them of special creation
56:36 And made them virgins
56:37 Tender and un-aging
56:38 For those on the Right
56:39 A throng from the ancients
56:40 And a throng from the latecomers
56:41 And those on the Left—what of those on the Left
56:42 Amid searing wind and boiling water
56:43 And a shadow of thick smoke
56:44 Neither cool, nor refreshing
56:45 They had lived before that in luxury
56:46 And they used to persist in immense wrongdoing
56:47 And they used to say, 'When we are dead and turned into dust and bones, are we to be resurrected
56:48 And our ancient ancestors too?'
56:49 Say, 'The first and the last
56:50 Will be gathered for the appointment of a familiar Day.'
56:51 Then you, you misguided, who deny the truth
56:52 Will be eating from the Tree of Bitterness
56:53 Will be filling your bellies with it
56:54 Will be drinking on top of it boiling water
56:55 Drinking like thirsty camels drink.
56:56 That is their hospitality on the Day of Retribution
56:57 We created you—if only you would believe
56:58 Have you seen what you ejaculate
56:59 Is it you who create it, or are We the Creator
56:60 We have decreed death among you, and We will not be outstripped
56:61 In replacing you with your likes, and transforming you into what you do not know
56:62 You have known the first formation; if only you would remember
56:63 Have you seen what you cultivate
56:64 Is it you who make it grow, or are We the Grower
56:65 If We will, We can turn it into rubble; then you will lament
56:66 'We are penalized
56:67 No, we are being deprived.'
56:68 Have you seen the water you drink
56:69 Is it you who sent it down from the clouds, or are We the Sender
56:70 If We will, We can make it salty. Will you not be thankful
56:71 Have you seen the fire you kindle
56:72 Is it you who produce its tree, or are We the Producer
56:73 We have made it a reminder, and a comfort for the users
56:74 So glorify the Name of your Great Lord
56:75 I swear by the locations of the stars
56:76 It is an oath, if you only knew, that is tremendous
56:77 It is a noble Quran
56:78 In a well-protected Book
56:79 None can grasp it except the purified
56:80 A revelation from the Lord of the Worlds
56:81 Is it this discourse that you take so lightly
56:82 And you make it your livelihood to deny it
56:83 So when it has reached the throat
56:84 As you are looking on
56:85 We are nearer to it than you are, but you do not see
56:86 If you are not held to account
56:87 Then bring it back, if you are truthful
56:88 But if he is one of those brought near
56:89 Then happiness, and flowers, and Garden of Delights
56:90 And if he is one of those on the Right
56:91 Then, 'Peace upon you,' from those on the Right
56:92 But if he is one of the deniers, the mistaken
56:93 Then a welcome of Inferno
56:94 And burning in Hell
56:95 This is the certain truth
56:96 So glorify the Name of your Lord, the Magnificen
