56:1  When the inevitable event takes place
56:2  and there can be no denying its happening
56:3  some shall be abased and others exalted
56:4  When the earth is shaken violently
56:5  and the mountains are totally shattered and crumble to piece
56:6  and become like scattered dust particles
56:7  [on that Day] you shall be divided into three groups.[43]
56:8  Those on the Righthow blessed are those on the Right
56:9  Those on the Lefthow unlucky are those on the Left
56:10  The third to the fore shall be the foremost
56:11  They shall be the nearest to God
56:12  They will dwell in the Gardens of Bliss
56:13  a large group of the early believers
56:14  and a lesser number from the later generations
56:15  Seated on couches wrought in gold and encrusted with precious stones
56:16  reclining on them facing each other
56:17  they will be waited on by ageless youth
56:18  carrying goblets and ewers and cups filled with the purest wine
56:19  neither causing headaches, nor intoxication
56:20  along with fruits of their choice
56:21  and the meat of any bird that they may desire
56:22  and fair maidens with large, lustrous eye
56:23  like the pearls in their shells
56:24  shall be their recompense for their deeds
56:25  They will not hear therein any vain or sinful talk
56:26  only the words of peace and tranquillity
56:27  Those on the Right, how fortunate are those on the Right
56:28  They shall recline on high amidst lote trees without thorn
56:29  and clustered bananas
56:30  and spreading shad
56:31  and flowing water
56:32  and fruits in abundance
56:33  never-ending and unrestricted
56:34  on raised couches
56:35  We have created maidens perfectl
56:36  and made them virgins
56:37  loving companions, matching in age
56:38  for those on the Right
56:39  a large group of the earlier peopl
56:40  and a large group of those of later times
56:41  Those on the Left: how unfortunate are those on the Left
56:42  They will find themselves in scorching wind and scalding water
56:43  and under the shadow of black smoke
56:44  neither cool nor refreshing
56:45  They had been affluent before
56:46  and they persisted obstinately in awful sin
56:47  and they used to say, What! After we have died and become dust and bones, shall we indeed be raised up again
56:48  And also our forefathers
56:49  Say, Indeed, the earlier ones and the later one
56:50  will indeed be gathered together at a fixed time on an appointed Day
56:51  Then you, you misguided ones, who deny the truth
56:52  shall eat the fruit of the tree of Zaqqum
56:53  and fill your bellies with it
56:54  and shall drink boiling water on top of that
56:55  You shall drink it as the thirsty camels drink
56:56  This shall be their entertainment on the Day of Judgement
56:57  We have created you: why then do you not accept the truth
56:58  Have you thought about [the semen] that you discharg
56:59  did you create it or did We
56:60  It is We who have ordained death for all of you; and We cannot be prevente
56:61  from replacing you by others like yourselves or changing your forms and re-creating you in forms that you know nothing of
56:62  You have certainly known the first creation. Why, then, do you not take heed
56:63  Have you thought about what crops you plant
56:64  Is it you who cause them to grow or do We
56:65  If We so pleased, We could turn your harvest into chaff. Then you would start lamenting
56:66  We are ruined
56:67  nay, we are deprived [altogether]
56:68  Have you considered the water that you drink
56:69  Is it you who cause it to descend from the clouds, or do We
56:70  If We so pleased, We certainly could make it salty. Why, then, are you not grateful
56:71  Have you thought about the fire that you kindle
56:72  Did you produce the tree that serves as fuel or do We
56:73  We have made it to be a reminder and a benefit for the wayfarers
56:74  So glorify the name of your Lord, the Supreme
56:75  Nay, I swear by the setting of the star
56:76  and, indeed, that is a most mighty oath, if you only kne
56:77  that this is indeed a noble Quran
56:78  in a well-guarded preserved Book
56:79  which none can touch except the purified
56:80  It is a revelation sent down from the Lord of the worlds
56:81  How can you regard this discourse with disdain
56:82  Do you make its denial 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 [helplessly]
56:85  and We are nearer to him than you, although you cannot see U
56:86  why, then, if you are not subject to Our command
56:87  do you not cause the soul to return to him if you are truthful in your claim
56:88  But if he [the dying person] is one of those brought near to God
56:89  then for him there shall be comfort and plenty and a Garden of Bliss
56:90  and if he is of those who are on the Right
56:91  he will be greeted with, Peace be to you, by those on the Right
56:92  But if he is one of those who rejected [the truth] and went astray
56:93  he will be welcomed with boiling water
56:94  He will burn in Hell
56:95  This is indeed the indubitable truth
56:96  So glorify the name of your Lord, the Supreme
