The Study Quran rendition of Surah The Event, The Inevitable, That Which is Coming(al-Waqi`ah)
56:1 When the Event befalls
56:2 none shall deny its befalling
56:3 abasing, exalting
56:4 When the earth is shaken violently
56:5 and the mountains are pulverized to powder
56:6 such that they become scattered dust
56:7 and you shall be of three kinds
56:8 the companions of the right; what of the companions of the right
56:9 And the companions of the left; what of the companions of the left
56:10 And the foremost shall be the foremost
56:11 They are the ones brought nigh
56:12 in Gardens of bliss
56:13 many from those of old
56:14 and few from those of later times
56:15 upon embroidered couches
56:16 reclining upon them, facing one another
56:17 Immortal youths wait upon the
56:18 with goblets, ewers, and a cup from a flowing spring
56:19 wherefrom they suffer neither headache nor stupefaction
56:20 with fruits as they choose
56:21 and the meat of birds as they desire
56:22 and [there shall be] wide-eyed maidens
56:23 the likeness of concealed pearls
56:24 as a recompense for that which they used to do
56:25 They hear no idle talk therein, nor incitement to sin
56:26 save that “Peace! Peace!” is uttered
56:27 And the companions of the right; what of the companions of the right
56:28 Among thornless lote trees
56:29 clustered plantains
56:30 and extended shade
56:31 gushing water
56:32 and abundant fruit
56:33 neither out of reach, nor forbidden
56:34 and [upon] raised beds
56:35 Truly We brought them into being as a [new] creation
56:36 then made for them virgins
56:37 amorous peers
56:38 for the companions of the right
56:39 many from those of old
56:40 and many from those of later times
56:41 And the companions of the left; what of the companions of the left
56:42 Amidst scorching wind and boiling liquid
56:43 and the shadow of black smoke
56:44 neither cool nor refreshing
56:45 Truly before that they lived in luxury
56:46 would persist in great sin
56:47 and would say, “What! When we are dead and have become dust and bones, are we to be resurrected
56:48 What! And our fathers of old?
56:49 Say, “Truly those of old and those of later time
56:50 are gathered for the tryst of a day appointed.
56:51 Then indeed you—O you straying deniers
56:52 shall eat from a tree of Zaqqum
56:53 and fill your bellies therewith
56:54 Then you shall drink from boiling liquid
56:55 drinking as do parched camels
56:56 This shall be their welcome on the Day of Judgment
56:57 We created you. Would that you affirm it
56:58 Have you considered that which you emit
56:59 Is it you who created it or are We the creators
56:60 We have decreed death among you, and none outstrips U
56:61 in replacing [you with] your likenesses and bringing you into being again in what you know not
56:62 You have indeed known the first genesis. Why, then, do you not reflect
56:63 Have you considered what you reap
56:64 Is it you who sow it or are We the sowers
56:65 Had We willed, We would have turned it to chaff, such that you would remain bitterly jesting
56:66 [saying] “Truly we have suffered loss
56:67 Nay! We are deprived.
56:68 Have you considered the water that you drink
56:69 Is it you who sent it down from the clouds, or is it We Who send down
56:70 If We had willed, We would have made it bitter; will you not, then, give thanks
56:71 Have you considered the fire that you kindle
56:72 Is it you who brought into being the tree thereof, or is it We Who bring into being
56:73 We made it a reminder and an enjoyment for the desert dwellers
56:74 So glorify the Name of thy Lord, the Magnificent
56:75 I swear by the places where the stars descend
56:76 And truly it is a magnificent oath, if you but knew
56:77 Truly it is a Noble Qura
56:78 in a Book concealed
56:79 None touch it, save those made pure
56:80 a revelation from the Lord of the worlds
56:81 Do you then scorn this discourse
56:82 and make the denial thereof your provision
56:83 Why, then, when it reaches the throat
56:84 while you are looking o
56:85 —and We are nearer to him than you, though you see not
56:86 why, then, if you are unconstrained
56:87 do you not return it, if you are truthful
56:88 So if one be among those brought nigh
56:89 then comfort, bounty, and a Garden of bliss
56:90 And if one be among the companions of the right
56:91 then peace unto thee from the companions of the right
56:92 But if one be among the deniers who are astray
56:93 then a welcome of boiling liquid
56:94 and burning in Hellfire
56:95 Verily, this is the truth of certainty
56:96 so glorify the Name of thy Lord, the Magnificent
