56:1  When the inevitable event comes
56:2  no soul will deny its coming
56:3  It will abase some and exalt others
56:4  When the earth is violently shake
56:5  and the mountains crumbled
56:6  they will become like dust scattered around
56:7  On that day, you (mankind) will be divided into three groups
56:8  The people of the right hand - those whose books of records will be placed in their right hands. How happy they will be
56:9  The people of the left hand - those whose books of records will be placed in their left hands. How miserable they will be
56:10  The foremost ones (in faith and virtue) - the foremost ones in receiving their reward
56:11  (The foremost ones) will be the nearest ones to Go
56:12  in the beautiful Paradise
56:13  Many of them will be from the ancient peopl
56:14  and only a few of them from the later generations
56:15  They will recline on jewelled couche
56:16  facing one another
56:17  Immortal youths will serve the
56:18  with goblets, jugs and cups of crystal clear win
56:19  which will not cause them any intoxication or illness
56:20  Also, they will be served with the fruits of their choic
56:21  and the flesh of birds, as they desire
56:22  They will have maidens with large, lovely black and white eyes
56:23  like pearls preserved in their shells
56:24  as reward for their deeds
56:25  They will not hear any unnecessary or sinful tal
56:26  except each other's greetings of, "Peace be with you"
56:27  As for the people of the right hand, how happy they will be
56:28  They will live amid the thornless lot tree
56:29  and banana trees
56:30  with fruits piled up one on the other
56:31  and amid the extended shad
56:32  near to flowing wate
56:33  and abundant fruits
56:34  undiminished and never denie
56:35  and the noble maiden
56:36  that We have created (for the people of the right hand)
56:37  We have made them virgins
56:38  loving and of equal age
56:39  These (people of the right hand) consist of many from the ancien
56:40  and many from the later generations
56:41  As for the people on the left hand, how miserable they will be
56:42  They will live amid the scorching
56:43  scalding water and under a shadow of black smoke
56:44  neither cold nor graceful in shape
56:45  They had lived in luxury before thi
56:46  and persisted in heinous sins
56:47  It was they who said, "Shall we be resurrected after we die and have turned into dust and bones
56:48  Will our ancient forefathers be resurrected too
56:49  (Muhammad), say, "All the ancient and later generation
56:50  will be brought together for an appointment on an appointed day
56:51  Then you people who had gone astray and rejected the Trut
56:52  will eat from the fruit of the tree of Zaqqum
56:53  filling your bellies, with i
56:54  and on top of this you will drink boiling wate
56:55  like a thirsty camel"
56:56  Such will be their dwelling on the Day of Judgment
56:57  It is We who have created you. Why then did you not testify to the Truth
56:58  Have you seen sperm
56:59  Did you create it or was it We who created it
56:60  We have destined death for you and no one can challenge U
56:61  in replacing you with another creation like you, changing you into a form which you do not know
56:62  You certainly knew about (your) first development. Why do you not take heed
56:63  Have you seen what you sow
56:64  Do you make it grow or is it We who make it grow
56:65  Had We wanted, We could have crushed it to bits and you would have been left to lament
56:66  crying, "We have been left to suffer loss
56:67  Surely, we have been deprived (of the benefits)"
56:68  Have you seen the water which you drink
56:69  Is it you who sent it down from the clouds or is it We who have sent it down
56:70  Had We wanted, We could have made it salty. Why then do you not give thanks
56:71  Have you seen the fire which you kindle
56:72  Is it you who have produced its tree or is it We who have produced it
56:73  It is We who have made it as a reminder and a means of comfort for the people
56:74  (Muhammad), glorify your Lord, the Great One
56:75  I do not need to swear by the setting of the star
56:76  - which is indeed a great oath if only you knew it
56:77  that this is an honorable Qura
56:78  preserved in a hidden Book whic
56:79  no one can touch it except the purified ones
56:80  (This Quran) is a revelation from the Lord of the Universe
56:81  Would you say that this statement is a lie
56:82  Would you reject the sustenance that you receive rather than give thanks
56:83  Why can you not help a soul dyin
56:84  right before your very eyes
56:85  We are closer to him than you, but you cannot see
56:86  If you are true to your claim that there is no Day of Judgment
56:87  why can you not bring it (the soul) back (to life)
56:88  (If a dying soul) is of those near to God
56:89  it will have rest, happiness, and a beautiful Paradise
56:90  If it is of the people of the right hand
56:91  it will be with the people of the right hand, living in peace and security
56:92  If it is of those who have rejected the Truth and have gone astray
56:93  its dwelling will be boiling wate
56:94  and the heat of hell fire
56:95  This is the absolute Truth and certainty
56:96  So glorify the name of your Lord, the Great One
