56:1  When the Event comes to pass -
56:2  There is no belying its coming to pass -
56:3  Abasing (some), exalting (others) -
56:4  When the earth is shaken with a (severe) shaking
56:5  And the mountains are crumbled to pieces
56:6  So they are as scattered dust
56:7  And you are three sorts
56:8  So those on the right hand; how (happy) are those on the right-hand
56:9  And those on the left; how (wretched) are those on the left
56:10  And the foremost are the foremost -
56:11  These are drawn nigh (to Allah)
56:12  In Gardens of blis
56:13  A multitude from among the first
56:14  And a few from among those of later times
56:15  On thrones inwrought
56:16  Reclining on them, facing each other
56:17  Round about them will go youths never altering in age
56:18  With goblets and ewers, and a cup of pure drink -
56:19  They are not affected with headache thereby, nor are they intoxicated
56:20  And fruits that they choose
56:21  And flesh of fowl that they desire
56:22  And pure, beautiful ones
56:23  Like to hidden pearls
56:24  A reward for what they did
56:25  They hear therein no vain or sinful talk -
56:26  But only the saying, Peace! Peace
56:27  And those on the right hand; how (happy) are those on the right hand
56:28  Amid thornless lote-trees
56:29  And clustered banana-trees
56:30  And extensive shade
56:31  And water gushing
56:32  And abundant fruit
56:33  Neither intercepted, nor forbidden
56:34  And exalted couches
56:35  Surely We have created them a (new) creation
56:36  So We have made them virgins
56:37  Loving, equals in age
56:38  For those on the right hand
56:39  A multitude from among the first
56:40  And a multitude from among those of later times
56:41  And those on the left hand; how (wretched) are those on the left hand
56:42  In hot wind and boiling water
56:43  And shadow of black smoke
56:44  Neither cool nor refreshing
56:45  Surely they lived before that in ease
56:46  And they persisted in the great violation
56:47  And they used to say: When we die and become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be rised
56:48  Or our fathers of yore
56:49  Say: The ancients and those of later time
56:50  Will surely be gathered together for the appointed hour of a known day
56:51  Then shall you, O you who err and deny
56:52  East of the tree of Zaqqum
56:53  And fill (your) bellies with it
56:54  Then drink after it of 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 accept
56:58  See you that which 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 overcome
56:61  That We may change your state and make you grow into what you know not
56:62  And certainly you know the first growth, why do you not then mind
56:63  See you what you sow
56:64  Is it you that cause it to grow, or are We the Causer of growth
56:65  If We pleased, We would make it chaff, then would you lament
56:66  Surely we are burdened with debt
56:67  Nay, we are deprived
56:68  See you the water which you drink
56:69  Do you bring it down from the clouds, or are We the Bringer
56:70  If We pleased, We could make it saltish; why give you not thanks
56:71  See you the fire which you kindle
56:72  Is it you that produce the trees for it, or are We the Producer
56:73  We have made it a reminder and an advantage for the wayfarers of the desert
56:74  So glorify the name of thy Lord, the Incomparably Great
56:75  But nay, I swear by revelation of portions (of the Qur’an)! -
56:76  And it is a great oath indeed, if you knew -
56:77  Surely it is a bounteous Qur’an
56:78  In a book that is protected
56:79  Which none touches save the purified ones
56:80  A revelation from the Lord of the worlds
56:81  Is it this announcement that you disdain
56:82  And make your denial your means of subsistence
56:83  Why is it not then that when it comes up to the throat
56:84  And you at that time look on -
56:85  And We are nearer to it than you, but you see not -
56:86  Why then, if you are not held under authority
56:87  Do you not send it back, if you are truthful
56:88  Then if he is one of those drawn nigh (to Allah)
56:89  Then happiness and bounty and a Garden of bliss
56:90  And if he is one of those on the right hand
56:91  Then peace to thee from those on the right hand
56:92  And if he is one of the rejectors, the erring ones
56:93  He has an entertainment of boiling water
56:94  And burning in hell
56:95  Surely this is a certain truth
56:96  So glorify the name of thy Lord, the Incomparably Great
