56:1  When the Event that must occur will become a reality
56:2  Then no (soul) will have denial regarding its happening
56:3  It will bring down (many) it will raise (many others)
56:4  When the earth shall be shaken to its depths
56:5  And the mountains shall be crushed to atoms
56:6  So that they will become dust scattered around
56:7  And you shall be sorted out into three classes
56:8  Then (there will be) the companions of the right hand— What will be the companions of the right hand
56:9  And (there will be) the companions of the left hand— What will be the companions of the left hand
56:10  And those foremost (in Faith) will be foremost (in the Hereafter)
56:11  These will be those nearest to Allah
56:12  In Garden of (true) joy
56:13  A number of people from those of the old
56:14  And a few ones from those of later times
56:15  (They will be) on thrones inlaid (with gold and precious stones)
56:16  Reclining on them, face to face
56:17  Around them will (serve) youths of ever lasting (freshness)
56:18  With little glasses, (shining) tumblers, and cups (filled) from clear-flowing fountains
56:19  No ill effects will they suffer from them, and they will not be dazed
56:20  And with fruits, any that they may select
56:21  And the flesh of fowls, any that they desire
56:22  And (there will be) companions (Hu'rs) with beautiful, big and lustrous eyes—
56:23  Like (they are) pearls, well-guarded
56:24  A reward for the deeds of their past (life)
56:25  No pettiness will they hear in there, and not even a little of sinful speech (or idle talk)—
56:26  But only the saying; "Peace! Peace!"
56:27  And those on the right (hand)— What will be the companions of the right hand
56:28  (They will be joyful) among the (heavenly) lote-tree without thorns
56:29  Among Talh (beautifully flowering) trees with flowers (or fruits) piled one above another—
56:30  In (the) long-extended shade
56:31  By water flowing constantly
56:32  And fruit in abundance
56:33  Whose season is not limited, and (whose supply is not) stopped
56:34  And on thrones (of dignity) raised high
56:35  Verily, We have created (their companions) of special creation
56:36  And made them virgin, pure (and untouched)—
56:37  Loving (by nature), equal in age—
56:38  For the companions of the right hand
56:39  A (good) number from the first generation (in Islam)
56:40  And a (good) number from those of later generations
56:41  The companions of the left hand— What will be the companions of the left hand
56:42  (They will be) in the middle of a brutal blast of Fire and in boiling water
56:43  And in the shades of black smoke
56:44  (There will be) nothing to refresh, nothing to please
56:45  Verily, they used to indulge, before that, in wealth (and luxury)
56:46  And willfully continued in the worst wickedness
56:47  And they used to say, "When we die and become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be Resurrected again
56:48  "We and our fathers of old?"
56:49  Say: "Yes, verily, those of old and those of later times
56:50  "All will certainly be gathered together for the meeting appointed for a well-known Da
56:51  "Then surely, will you truly— O you who go wrong, and treat (Truth) as falsehood
56:52  "You will surely taste of the (Evil) tree of Zaqqum
56:53  "Then will you fill your insides with it
56:54  "And drink boiling water on top of it
56:55  "Indeed you shall drink like diseased camels raging with thirst!"
56:56  This will be their entertainment on the Day of Judgment
56:57  It is We Who have created you: Why will you not see (and accept) the Truth
56:58  Do you see it? The (human) seed, (the chromosomes in the sperm and ovum) that you throw out—
56:59  Is it you who created it? — Or are We, the Creator
56:60  We have ordered death to be your common ending, and We are not to be frustrated—
56:61  In changing your shapes and recreating you (again) in (shapes) that you have not known
56:62  And indeed, you certainly know already the first form of creation: Why then do you not celebrate His praises
56:63  Do you see the seed that you sow in the ground
56:64  Is it you that cause it to grow, or are We the cause
56:65  If it was Our Will, We could crumble it to dry powder, and you would be left in wondering
56:66  (Saying), "We are indeed left in debts (for no reason)
56:67  "Nay! Certainly we are denied (of the fruits of our labor)."
56:68  Do you not see the water that you drink
56:69  Do you bring it down (as rain) from the cloud or do We send it
56:70  If it was Our Will We verily, could make it salt (and bitter) then why do you not give thanks (to Allah)
56:71  Do you not see the Fire that you kindle
56:72  Is it you who grow the tree which feeds the fire, or do We grow it
56:73  We have made it (the fire) a monument and an article of comfort and convenience for those who live in the desert (this world)
56:74  Then celebrate with Praises the Name of your Lord (Rab), the Greatest (Al-Azeem)
56:75  Next, I swear by the setting of the Stars—
56:76  And surely, that is indeed a mighty and holy oath if you only knew—
56:77  That, this is indeed a Quran most honorable
56:78  In a Book well-guarded (with Allah)
56:79  Which none shall touch except those who are clean
56:80  A Revelation from the Lord of the Worlds (Rab-Al-'Ala'meen)
56:81  Is it that such a Message that you would hold in light regard
56:82  And have you made it your livelihood that you should renounce it
56:83  Then why do you not (intervene) when (the soul of the dying man) reaches the throa
56:84  And you (sit) looking on—
56:85  But We are nearer to him than you, and you see not—
56:86  Then why do you not— If you are excused from (future) account.—
56:87  Return the soul, if you are truthful, (in your claim of independence)
56:88  Therefore, if he be among those nearest to Allah
56:89  (For him there is) rest and satisfaction, and a Garden of (heavenly) delights
56:90  And if he be of the companions of the right hand
56:91  (For him is the salutation); "Peace be upon you," for the companions of the right hand
56:92  And if he be of those who treat (truth) as falsehood, who go wrong
56:93  Then for him, the entertainment is with boiling water
56:94  And burning in Hell-Fire
56:95  Surely this! This is the very Truth (Haqq) and Certainty
56:96  So, celebrate with Praises the Name of your Lord (Rab), the Greatest (Al-Azeem)
