56:1  When the Imminent Event (of Doom) will occur
56:2  there will be no one to deny its occurrence
56:3  It will be abasing (some), exalting (others
56:4  when the earth will be jolted with a terrible jolt
56:5  and the mountains will be crumbled a thorough crumbling
56:6  until they will become dust, scattered in the air
56:7  and you will be (divided into) three categories
56:8  As for the People of the Right, how (lucky) are the People of the Right
56:9  And the People of the Left ? How (wretched) are the People of the Left
56:10  And the Foremost are the foremost
56:11  Those are the ones blessed with nearness (to Allah
56:12  in gardens of bliss
56:13  many from the first generations
56:14  and a few from the later ones
56:15  (They will be sitting) on thrones woven with gold
56:16  reclining on them, facing each other
56:17  Immortal boys will rotate around the
56:18  with bowls and jugs and a goblet of pure wine
56:19  from which they will neither suffer headache, nor will they be intoxicated
56:20  _and with fruits that they choose
56:21  and the flesh of birds that they desire
56:22  And (for them there will be) houris, having lovely big eyes
56:23  all (neat and clean) like a hidden pearl
56:24  as a reward for what they used to do
56:25  They will hear neither an absurd talk in it, nor something leading to sin
56:26  but (they will hear) the words of Salam , Salam (as greetings)
56:27  And the People of the right? How (lucky) are the People of the Right
56:28  (They will be) amid lote-trees with no thorns
56:29  and the trees of TalH , (banana, or a fragrant tree) having layers one upon the other
56:30  and a shade, spread all over
56:31  and water, poured forth
56:32  and a lot of fruits
56:33  neither interrupted (in any season), nor prohibited
56:34  and mattresses of high quality
56:35  Surely We have made up those females in a special creation
56:36  and have made them virgins
56:37  amorous to their husbands, matching them in age
56:38  for the People of the Right
56:39  (comprising) many from the first generations
56:40  and many from the later ones
56:41  And the People of the Left? How (wretched) are the People of the Left
56:42  (They will be) in scorching wind and boiling water
56:43  and in a shade of black smoke
56:44  neither cool nor graceful
56:45  They were earlier in luxuries
56:46  and used to persist in major sins
56:47  and used to say, .Is it that when we die and become dust__is it that we will be raised again
56:48  and our ancient fathers as well?
56:49  Say, .All the earlier and the later one
56:50  will be gathered together for a fixed time of a specified Day
56:51  Then O you, the erring, the denying people
56:52  you will have to eat from the tree of zaqqum
56:53  and to fill with it the bellies
56:54  then on top of it you will have to drink boiling water
56:55  and to drink like camels suffering from the disease of over-thirst
56:56  This will be their welcome entertainment on the Day of Requital
56:57  We have created you; then why do you not believe in it
56:58  So, tell Me about the semen you drop (in the wombs)
56:59  Is it you who create it, or are We the Creator
56:60  We have appointed (the times of) death among you, and We cannot be frustrate
56:61  from replacing you with others like you, and creating you (afresh) in that (form) which you do not know
56:62  And you certainly know the first creation; then why do you not take lesson
56:63  Well, tell Me about that (seed) which you sow
56:64  Is it you who grow it, or are We the One who grows
56:65  If We so will, We can certainly make it crumbled, and you will remain wondering
56:66  (and saying,) .We are laden with debt
56:67  rather we are totally deprived
56:68  Again, tell Me about the water you drink
56:69  Is it you who have brought it down from the clouds, or are We the One who sends (it) down
56:70  If We so will, We can make it bitter in taste. So why do you not offer gratitude
56:71  Now tell Me about the fire you kindle
56:72  Is it you who have originated its tree, or are We the Originator
56:73  We have made it a reminder (of Our infinite power, and of the fire of Hell) and a benefit for travelers in deserts
56:74  So, proclaim purity of the name of your Lord, the Magnificent
56:75  So, I swear by the setting places of the stars
56:76  __and indeed it is a great oath, if you are to appreciate_
56:77  it is surely the Noble Qur‘an
56:78  (recorded already) in a protected book (i.e. the Preserved Tablet
56:79  that is not touched except by the purified ones (the angels)
56:80  __ a revelation from the Lord of the worlds
56:81  Is it this discourse that you take lightly
56:82  and take your denial as your livelihood
56:83  So why (do you) not (intervene) when the soul (of a dying person) reaches the throat
56:84  and you are watching
56:85  And We are closer to him than you, but you do not perceive
56:86  So, if you are not going to be recompensed (in the Hereafter for your deeds), then why do you no
56:87  bring the soul back, if you are truthful
56:88  So, in case he (the dying person) is from among those blessed with nearness
56:89  then (for him) there is comfort and fragrance and garden of bliss
56:90  And in case he is from among the People of the Right
56:91  then, (it will be said to him,) .Peace is for you, as you are one of the People of the Right
56:92  But if he is one of the deniers, the astray
56:93  then (for him) there is entertainment from boiling water
56:94  and burning in the Hell
56:95  Indeed this is certainty in its true sense
56:96  So, proclaim purity of the name of your Lord, the Magnificent
