56:1  When the Event inevitable cometh to pass
56:2  Then will no (soul) entertain falsehood concerning its coming
56:3  (Many) will it bring low; (many) will it exalt
56:4  When the earth shall be shaken to its depths
56:5  And the mountains shall be crumbled to atoms
56:6  Becoming dust scattered abroad
56:7  And ye 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 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 Gardens of Bliss
56:13  A number of people from those of old
56:14  And a few from those of later times
56:15  (They will be) on Thrones encrusted (with gold and precious stones)
56:16  Reclining on them, facing each other
56:17  Round about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness)
56:18  With goblets, (shining) beakers, and cups (filled) out of clear-flowing fountains
56:19  No after-ache will they receive therefrom, nor will they suffer intoxication
56:20  And with fruits, any that they may select
56:21  And the flesh of fowls, any that they may desire
56:22  And (there will be) Companions with beautiful, big, and lustrous eyes,
56:23  Like unto Pearls well-guarded
56:24  A Reward for the deeds of their past (life)
56:25  Not frivolity will they hear therein, nor any taint of ill,
56:26  Only the saying, "Peace! Peace"
56:27  The Companions of the Right Hand,- what will be the Companions of the Right Hand
56:28  (They will be) among Lote-trees without thorns
56:29  Among Talh trees with flowers (or fruits) piled one above another,
56:30  In shade long-extended
56:31  By water flowing constantly
56:32  And fruit in abundance
56:33  Whose season is not limited, nor (supply) forbidden
56:34  And on Thrones (of Dignity), raised high
56:35  We have created (their Companions) of special creation
56:36  And made them virgin - pure (and undefiled),
56:37  Beloved (by nature), equal in age,
56:38  For the Companions of the Right Hand
56:39  A (goodly) number from those of old
56:40  And a (goodly) number from those of later times
56:41  The Companions of the Left Hand,- what will be the Companions of the Left Hand
56:42  (They will be) in the midst of a Fierce Blast of Fire and in Boiling Water
56:43  And in the shades of Black Smoke
56:44  Nothing (will there be) to refresh, nor to please
56:45  For that they were wont to be indulged, before that, in wealth (and luxury)
56:46  And persisted obstinately in wickedness supreme
56:47  And they used to say, "What! when we die and become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be raised up again?
56:48  "(We) and our fathers of old?"
56:49  Say: "Yea, those of old and those of later times
56:50  "All will certainly be gathered together for the meeting appointed for a Day well-known
56:51  "Then will ye truly,- O ye that go wrong, and treat (Truth) as Falsehood!
56:52  "Ye will surely taste of the Tree of Zaqqum
56:53  "Then will ye fill your insides therewith
56:54  "And drink Boiling Water on top of it
56:55  "Indeed ye shall drink like diseased camels raging with thirst!"
56:56  Such will be their entertainment on the Day of Requital
56:57  It is We Who have created you: why will ye not witness the Truth
56:58  Do ye then see?- The (human Seed) that ye throw out,
56:59  Is it ye who create it, or are We the Creators
56:60  We have decreed Death to be your common lot, and We are not to be frustrate
56:61  from changing your Forms and creating you (again) in (forms) that ye know not
56:62  And ye certainly know already the first form of creation: why then do ye not celebrate His praises
56:63  See ye the seed that ye sow in the ground
56:64  Is it ye that cause it to grow, or are We the Cause
56:65  Were it Our Will, We could crumble it to dry powder, and ye would be left in wonderment
56:66  (Saying), "We are indeed left with debts (for nothing)
56:67  "Indeed are we shut out (of the fruits of our labour)"
56:68  See ye the water which ye drink
56:69  Do ye bring it down (in rain) from the cloud or do We
56:70  Were it Our Will, We could make it salt (and unpalatable): then why do ye not give thanks
56:71  See ye the Fire which ye kindle
56:72  Is it ye who grow the tree which feeds the fire, or do We grow it
56:73  We have made it a memorial (of Our handiwork), and an article of comfort and convenience for the denizens of deserts
56:74  Then celebrate with praises the name of thy Lord, the Supreme
56:75  Furthermore I call to witness the setting of the Stars,
56:76  And that is indeed a mighty adjuration if ye but knew,
56:77  That this is indeed a qur'an Most Honourable
56:78  In Book well-guarded
56:79  Which none shall touch but those who are clean
56:80  A Revelation from the Lord of the Worlds
56:81  Is it such a Message that ye would hold in light esteem
56:82  And have ye made it your livelihood that ye should declare it false
56:83  Then why do ye not (intervene) when (the soul of the dying man) reaches the throat,
56:84  And ye the while (sit) looking on,
56:85  But We are nearer to him than ye, and yet see not,
56:86  Then why do ye not,- If you are exempt from (future) account,
56:87  Call back the soul, if ye are true (in the claim of independence)
56:88  Thus, then, if he be of those Nearest to Allah
56:89  (There is for him) Rest and Satisfaction, and a Garden of Delights
56:90  And if he be of the Companions of the Right Hand
56:91  (For him is the salutation), "Peace be unto thee", from the Companions of the Right Hand
56:92  And if he be of those who treat (Truth) as Falsehood, who go wrong
56:93  For him is Entertainment with Boiling Water
56:94  And burning in Hell-Fire
56:95  Verily, this is the Very Truth and Certainly
56:96  So celebrate with praises the name of thy Lord, the Supreme
