56:1  When the event befalleth
56:2  There is no denying that it will befall
56:3  Abasing (some), exalting (others)
56:4  When the earth is shaken with a shoc
56:5  And the hills are ground to powde
56:6  So that they become a scattered dust
56:7  And ye will be three kinds
56:8  (First) those on the right hand; what of those on the right hand
56:9  And (then) those on the left hand; what of those on the left hand
56:10  And the foremost in the race, the foremost in the race
56:11  Those are they who will be brought nig
56:12  In gardens of delight
56:13  A multitude of those of ol
56:14  And a few of those of later time
56:15  On lined couches
56:16  Reclining therein face to face
56:17  There wait on them immortal youth
56:18  With bowls and ewers and a cup from a pure sprin
56:19  Wherefrom they get no aching of the head nor any madness
56:20  And fruit that they prefe
56:21  And flesh of fowls that they desire
56:22  And (there are) fair ones with wide, lovely eyes
56:23  Like unto hidden pearls
56:24  Reward for what they used to do
56:25  There hear they no vain speaking nor recriminatio
56:26  (Naught) but the saying: Peace, (and again) Peace
56:27  And those on the right hand; what of those on the right hand
56:28  Among thornless lote-tree
56:29  And clustered plantains
56:30  And spreading shade
56:31  And water gushing
56:32  And fruit in plent
56:33  Neither out of reach nor yet forbidden
56:34  And raised couches
56:35  Lo! We have created them a (new) creatio
56:36  And made them virgins
56:37  Lovers, friends
56:38  For those on the right hand
56:39  A multitude of those of ol
56:40  And a multitude of those of later time
56:41  And those on the left hand: What of those on the left hand
56:42  In scorching wind and scalding wate
56:43  And shadow of black smoke
56:44  Neither cool nor refreshing
56:45  Lo! heretofore they were effete with luxur
56:46  And used to persist in the awful sin
56:47  And they used to say: When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then, forsooth, be raised again
56:48  And also our forefathers
56:49  Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Lo! those of old and those of later tim
56:50  Will all be brought together to the tryst of an appointed day
56:51  Then lo! ye, the erring, the deniers
56:52  Ye verily will eat of a tree called Zaqqu
56:53  And will fill your bellies therewith
56:54  And thereon ye will drink of boiling water
56:55  Drinking even as the camel drinketh
56:56  This will be their welcome on the Day of Judgment
56:57  We created you. Will ye then admit the truth
56:58  Have ye seen that which ye emit
56:59  Do ye create it or are We the Creator
56:60  We mete out death among you, and We are not to be outrun
56:61  That We may transfigure you and make you what ye know not
56:62  And verily ye know the first creation. Why, then, do ye not reflect
56:63  Have ye seen that which ye cultivate
56:64  Is it ye who foster it, or are We the Fosterer
56:65  If We willed, We verily could make it chaff, then would ye cease not to exclaim
56:66  Lo! we are laden with debt
56:67  Nay, but we are deprived
56:68  Have ye observed the water which ye drink
56:69  Is it ye who shed it from the raincloud, or are We the Shedder
56:70  If We willed We verily could make it bitter. Why then, give ye not thanks
56:71  Have ye observed the fire which ye strike out
56:72  Was it ye who made the tree thereof to grow, or were We the grower
56:73  We, even We, appointed it a memorial and a comfort for the dwellers in the wilderness
56:74  Therefor (O Muhammad), praise the name of thy Lord, the Tremendous
56:75  Nay, I swear by the places of the stars
56:76  And lo! that verily is a tremendous oath, if ye but knew
56:77  That (this) is indeed a noble Qur'a
56:78  In a Book kept hidde
56:79  Which none toucheth save the purified
56:80  A revelation from the Lord of the Worlds
56:81  Is it this Statement that ye scorn
56:82  And make denial thereof your livelihood
56:83  Why, then, when (the soul) cometh up to the throat (of the dying
56:84  And ye are at that moment lookin
56:85  - And We are nearer unto him than ye are, but ye see not
56:86  Why then, if ye are not in bondage (unto Us)
56:87  Do ye not force it back, if ye are truthful
56:88  Thus if he is of those brought nigh
56:89  Then breath of life, and plenty, and a Garden of delight
56:90  And if he is of those on the right hand
56:91  Then (the greeting) "Peace be unto thee" from those on the right hand
56:92  But if he is of the rejecters, the erring
56:93  Then the welcome will be boiling wate
56:94  And roasting at hell-fire
56:95  Lo! this is certain truth
56:96  Therefor (O Muhammad) praise the name of thy Lord, the Tremendous
