56:1  When the Inevitable event comes to pass
56:2  There is no denying its coming to pass
56:3  Some it will bring low, others it will exalt
56:4  When the earth will be shaken with a terrible shaking
56:5  And mountains will be scattered - a complete scattering
56:6  They shall all become like dust particles scattered about
56:7  And you shall be divided into three groups
56:8  Those on the right hand - how lucky are those on the right hand
56:9  And those on the left hand - how unlucky are those on the left hand
56:10  And the foremost; they are truly the foremost
56:11  They will be those near to God
56:12  And will be in the Gardens of Bliss
56:13  A large party from among the first believers
56:14  And a few from among the later ones
56:15  Seated on couches inwrought with gold and jewels
56:16  Reclining thereon, facing each other
56:17  There will wait on them youths who will not age
56:18  Carrying goblets and ewers and cups filled out of a flowing spring
56:19  No headache will they get therefrom, nor will they be intoxicated
56:20  And carrying such fruits as they choose
56:21  And flesh of birds as they may desire
56:22  And there will be fair maidens with wide, lovely eyes
56:23  Like pearls well-preserved
56:24  As a reward for what they did
56:25  They will not hear therein any vain or sinful talk
56:26  Except only the word of salutation - `Peace, peace.
56:27  Those on the right hand - how lucky are those on the right hand !
56:28  They will be amidst thornless lote-trees
56:29  And clustered bananas
56:30  And extended shade
56:31  And flowing water
56:32  And abundant fruit
56:33  Neither failing, nor forbidden
56:34  And they will have noble spouses
56:35  Verily, WE have created them a good creation
56:36  And made them virgins
56:37  Loving, of equal age
56:38  For those on the right hand
56:39  A large party from among the first believers
56:40  And a large party from among the later ones
56:41  And those on the left hand - how unlucky are those on the left hand !
56:42  They will be in the midst of scorching winds and scalding water
56:43  And under the shadow of pitch-black smoke
56:44  Neither cool nor wholesome
56:45  Before this they lived in a life of ease and plenty
56:46  And persisted in extreme sinfulness
56:47  And they were wont to say, `What ! when we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we, indeed, be raised again
56:48  `And our fathers of yore too?
56:49  Say, `Yes, the earlier ones and the later ones
56:50  `Will all be gathered together unto the fixed time of an appointed day
56:51  `Then, O ye that have gone astray and have rejected the truth
56:52  `You will, surely, eat of the tree of Zaqqhm
56:53  And will fill your bellies therewith
56:54  `And will drink boiling water, on top of that
56:55  `Drinking as the insatiable thirsty camels drink.
56:56  This will be their entertainment on the Day of Judgment
56:57  WE have created you. Why, then do you not accept the truth
56:58  What think ye of the sperm-drop that you emit
56:59  Is it you who have created it, or are WE the Creator
56:60  WE have ordained death for all of you; and WE cannot be hindered
56:61  From bringing in your place others like you, and from developing you into a form which you know not
56:62  And you have, certainly, known the first creation. Why, then, do you not reflect
56:63  Do you see what you sow
56:64  Is it you who cause it to grow, or are WE the grower
56:65  If WE so pleased, WE could reduce it all to withered stubble, then you would keep lamenting
56:66  `We are laden with debt
56:67  `Nay, we are totally deprived of everything.
56:68  Have you considered the water which you drink
56:69  Do you send it down from the clouds, or are WE the Sender
56:70  If WE so pleased, WE could make it bitter. Why, then, do you not give thanks
56:71  Have you considered the fire which you kindle
56:72  Is it you who produce the tree for it, or are WE the Producer
56:73  WE have made it a reminder and benefit for the wayfarers
56:74  So glorify the name of thy Lord, the Great
56:75  Nay, I cite as proof the shooting of the stars
56:76  And, indeed, that is a grand testimony, if you only knew
56:77  This is, indeed, a noble Qur'an
56:78  In a well-preserved Book
56:79  Which none shall touch except those who are purified
56:80  It is a revelation from the Lord of the worlds
56:81  Is it this divine discourse that you would reject
56:82  And do you make the denial thereof your means of livelihood
56:83  Why, then, when the soul of the dying man reaches the throat
56:84  And you are at that moment looking on
56:85  And WE are nearer to him than you, but you see not
56:86  Why, then, if you are not to be called to account
56:87  You cannot bring it back if you are truthful
56:88  Now if he be of those who are near to God
56:89  Then for him is comfort and fragrance of happiness and Garden of bliss
56:90  And if he be of those of the right hand
56:91  Then, `Peace be ever on thee, O thou, of those of the right hand !
56:92  But if he be of those who reject the truth and are in error
56:93  Then for him will be an entertainment of boiling water
56:94  And burning in Hell
56:95  Verily, this is the certain truth
56:96  So glorify the name of thy Lord, the Incomparably Great
