56:1  When that which is coming arrives
56:2  no one will be able to deny it has come
56:3  bringing low and raising high
56:4  When the earth is shaken violentl
56:5  and the mountains are ground to powde
56:6  and turn to scattered dust
56:7  then you will be sorted into three classes
56:8  Those on the Right––what people they are
56:9  Those on the Left––what people they are
56:10  And those in front––ahead indeed
56:11  For these will be the ones brought nearest to Go
56:12  in Gardens of Bliss
56:13  many from the pas
56:14  and a few from later generations
56:15  On couches of well-woven clot
56:16  they will sit facing each other
56:17  everlasting youths will go round among the
56:18  with glasses, flagons, and cups of a pure drin
56:19  that causes no headache or intoxication
56:20  [there will be] any fruit they choose
56:21  the meat of any bird they like
56:22  and beautiful companion
56:23  like hidden pearls
56:24  a reward for what they used to do
56:25  They will hear no idle or sinful talk there
56:26  only clean and wholesome speech
56:27  Those on the Right, what people they are
56:28  They will dwell amid thornless lote tree
56:29  and clustered acaci
56:30  with spreading shade
56:31  constantly flowing water
56:32  abundant fruits
56:33  unfailing, unforbidden
56:34  with incomparable companion
56:35  We have specially created–&ndash
56:36  virginal
56:37  loving, of matching age–&ndash
56:38  for those on the Right
56:39  many from the pas
56:40  and many from later generations
56:41  But those on the Left, what people they are
56:42  They will dwell amid scorching wind and scalding wate
56:43  in the shadow of black smoke
56:44  neither cool nor refreshing
56:45  Before, they overindulged in luxur
56:46  and persisted in great sin
56:47  always saying, ‘What? When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then be raised up
56:48  And our earliest forefathers too?’
56:49  Say [Prophet], ‘The earliest and latest generation
56:50  will all be gathered on a predetermined Da
56:51  and you who have gone astray and denied the trut
56:52  will eat from the bitter tree of Zaqqum
56:53  filling your bellies with it
56:54  and drink scalding water
56:55  lapping it like thirsty camels.’
56:56  This will be their welcome on the Day of Judgement
56:57  It was We who created you: will you not believe
56:58  Consider [the semen] you eject
56:59  do you create it yourselves or are We the Creator
56:60  We ordained death to be among you. Nothing could stop U
56:61  if We intended to change you and recreate you in a way unknown to you
56:62  You have learned how you were first created: will you not reflect
56:63  Consider the seeds you sow in the ground
56:64  is it you who make them grow or We
56:65  If We wished, We could turn your harvest into chaff and leave you to wail
56:66  ‘We are burdened with debt
56:67  we are bereft.’
56:68  Consider the water you drink
56:69  was it you who brought it down from the rain-cloud or We
56:70  If We wanted, We could make it bitter: will you not be thankful
56:71  Consider the fire you kindle
56:72  is it you who make the wood for it grow or We
56:73  We made it a reminder, and useful to those who kindle it
56:74  so [Prophet] glorify the name of your Lord, the Supreme
56:75  I swear by the positions of the stars
56:76  a mighty oath, if you only knew
56:77  that this is truly a noble Quran
56:78  in a protected Recor
56:79  that only the purified can touch
56:80  sent down from the Lord of all being
56:81  How can you scorn this statement
56:82  And how, in return for the livelihood you are given, can you deny it
56:83  When the soul of a dying man comes up to his throa
56:84  while you gaze on
56:85  We are nearer to him than you, though you do not see Us
56:86  why, if you are not to be judged
56:87  do you not restore his soul to him, if what you say is true
56:88  If that dying person is one of those who will be brought near to God
56:89  he will have rest, ease, and a Garden of Bliss
56:90  if he is one of those on the Right
56:91  [he will hear], ‘Peace be on you,’ from his companions on the Right
56:92  but if he is one of those who denied the truth and went astray
56:93  he will be welcomed with scalding water
56:94  He will burn in Hell
56:95  This is the certain truth
56:96  [Prophet], glorify the name of your Lord the Supreme
