56:1  When the Inevitable Event comes to pass
56:2  There is no denying that it will come
56:3  Abasing some, exalting others
56:4  When the earth shall be shaken to its foundations
56:5  And the mountains shall be crumbled
56:6  So that they shall be as scattered dust
56:7  And you shall be sorted into three classes
56:8  First the companions of the right hand - what will be the companions of the right hand
56:9  And then the companions of the left hand - what will be the companions of the left hand
56:10  And those foremost (in faith) will be the foremost (in the Hereafter)
56:11  These are they who are drawn nigh (to Allah)
56:12  In the Gardens of Bliss
56:13  A multitude of those of old
56:14  And a few of those of later times
56:15  On thrones decorated
56:16  Reclining on them, facing one another
56:17  Round about them shall serve youths of permanent freshness (immortal or never altering in age)
56:18  With goblets and ewers and a cup filled from a pure fountain
56:19  They shall not suffer with headache thereby, nor shall they get intoxicated (or exhausted)
56:20  And fruits such as they choose
56:21  And the flesh of fowl and any as they desire
56:22  And pure, beautiful companions
56:23  The like of the well-preserved pearls
56:24  A reward for what they used to do
56:25  They shall not hear therein vain or sinful discourse
56:26  Except the saying, "Peace! Peace!"
56:27  And the companions of the right hand; what of the companions of the Right Hand
56:28  Amid thornless Lote-trees
56:29  And tall trees with clusters of flowers (or fruits) one above another
56:30  And spreading shade
56:31  And water flowing constantly
56:32  And abundant fruit
56:33  Neither intercepted nor forbidden
56:34  And exalted thrones
56:35  Surely We have created them into a new creation
56:36  And made them virgins pure
56:37  Loving friends, equals in age
56:38  For the sake of the companions of the right hand
56:39  A multitude of those of old
56:40  And a multitude of those of later times
56:41  And those of the left hand; what of those of the Left Hand
56:42  In hot wind and boiling water
56:43  And the shade of black smoke
56:44  Neither cool nor honourable
56:45  Surely they were before this made to live in ease and plenty
56:46  And they persisted in the great violation (or great sin)
56:47  And they used to say, "What! When we die and have become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be raised
56:48  "Or our fathers of yore?"
56:49  Say, "The first and the last
56:50  "Shall most surely be gathered together for the appointed hour of a known day
56:51  "Then shall you, O you who err and call it a lie
56:52  "Most surely eat of a tree of Zaqqum
56:53  "And fill your bellies therewith
56:54  "Then drink over it boiling water
56:55  "And drink as drinks the thirsty camel."
56:56  This is their entertainment on the Day of Requital
56:57  We have created you, why do you not then assent
56:58  Have you considered the seed (or what you emit)
56:59  Is it you that create it or are We the creators
56:60  We have ordained death among you and We are not to be frustrated
56:61  That We may transfigure you and make you grow into what you know not
56:62  And certainly you know the first growth, why do you not then reflect
56:63  Have you considered what you sow
56:64  Is it you that cause it to grow, or are We the cause
56:65  If We willed, We could crumble it to powder, then would you lament
56:66  "Surely we are burdened with debt
56:67  "Nay! We are deprived."
56:68  Have you considered the water which you drink
56:69  Is it you that send it down from the clouds, or are We the senders
56:70  If We willed, We could have made it salty; why do you not then give thanks
56:71  Have you considered the fire which you strike
56:72  Is it you that produce the trees for it, or are We the producers
56:73  We have made it a reminder and a convenience for the dwellers of the deserts
56:74  Therefore, glorify the name of your Lord, the Supreme
56:75  But nay! I swear by the setting (or falling or fading) of stars
56:76  And most surely it is a very great oath if you only knew
56:77  Most surely it is an honoured Quran
56:78  In a book that is protecte
56:79  None shall touch it save the purified ones
56:80  A revelation by the Lord of the worlds
56:81  Do you then hold this announcement in contempt
56:82  And make denial of it your means of subsistence
56:83  Why then do you not (intervene) when the soul comes up to the throat (of a dying person)
56:84  And you the while look on
56:85  And We are nearer to it (the soul) than you, but you see not
56:86  Then why, if you are not under Our authority
56:87  Force back (the soul), if you are truthful (about your independence)
56:88  Then if he is one of those Near to Allah
56:89  (There is for him) Satisfaction and Bounty and a Garden of Bliss
56:90  And if he is one of those on the Right Hand
56:91  Then (the salutation) "Peace to you" from the companions of the Right Hand
56:92  And if he is one of the rejecters, the erring ones
56:93  He shall have an entertainment of boiling water
56:94  And burning in Hell
56:95  Most surely this is a certain truth (or the Truth of Certainty)
56:96  Therefore glorify the name of your Lord, the Supreme
