When that (inevitable) event, (the Day of Judgment) occurs
There shall be no one to deny the fact of its occurrence
(It will) humble some, honor others
When the earth shall be shaken up violently
And the mountains are ground up into fine particles
And scattered about as dust
(That day), you shall (all) be (divided into) three factions
The people of the right! How (fortunate) would be the people of the right
The people of the left! How (wretched) would be the people of the left
(But of course), the foremost (in righteousness, those who exceeded and excelled) would be the foremost (in honor)
They would be nearest (to Allah)
In the blissful paradise
Many (of the foremost would be) from the earlier (generations)
And fewer from the later (generations)
(They will sit) on thrones engraved with gold and precious stones
They would recline (on their thrones), facing each other
Youthful lads, who would stay young forever,would wait on them
With cups and goblets, and glasses filled (with pure wine) from the spring
It would neither cause a hangover, nor affect their senses
And (they shall have) fruits, any (kind) they choose
And the flesh of birds and fowl, whichever they fancy
And lovely-eyed nymphs (of paradise)
(So beautiful), as if they were pearls preserved in their shells
(All as) rewards for what they used to do
There, they shall not hear anything vulgar or vile
Only serene and peaceful greetings
And for the people of the right? How (fortunate) would be the people of the right
(They would be in a place) with thornless lotus trees
Clusters of Acacia _ (a tree in paradise)
Dense and defuse shade
Water pouring out (of springs constantly)
Unforbidden and limitless
And elevated thrones
(As for their wives), We would fashion them afresh
And make them young again, vernal and virginal
Loving and devoted mates of the same age
(All this), for the people of the right
(There would be) many (of them) from the earlier (generations)
And many from the later (generations)
And the people of the left? How (wretched) would be the people of the left
(They would live) in the (blistering) hot wind, and the (boiling) hot water
Under the cover of the dark smoke
Which is neither cool nor refreshing
Prior to this, they had the life of leisure and luxury
And persisted in the greatest of sins
They used to say, "After we die and wither away into dust and bones, would we really be brought back to life?"
"And our forefathers, too?"
(Tell them, oh prophet) "Indeed, all (of you) of the earlier and later times,"
"Would certainly be gathered together at the selected place, on an appointed day."
"And then, oh you who went astray and rejected (the truth)!"
"You would certainly have to eat the fruit of the tree of ´zaqqum´,"
"And stuff yourself with it."
"(To flush it down), you are going to have (only) hot boiling water,"
"Which you will drink like a thirst stricken camel!"
Such will be their ´reception´ on the Day of Judgment
It is We Who has created you. Why then do you not affirm the truth
Do you ever think about the semen you ejaculate
Do you turn it into a human fetus, or are We the Creator
We have decreed death for all of you, and We are not incapable
Of altering your form, and reshaping you into an altogether different existence. An existence about which you know absolutely nothing
You are certainly well aware of this (present) form of creation. So, why do you not heed
Do you ever think about the seeds you sow in the soil
Do you make them grow? Or is it We Who turns the seeds into a field full of crops
If We wish, We can convert the crop into chaff and leave you whining
(Saying), "We have really been penalized!"
"In fact we have been deprived."
Do you ever think about the water you drink
Did you bring it down from the rain clouds? Or is it We Who makes the rain come down
If We wish, We could make it brackish. So why aren´t you grateful
Do you ever think about the fire you build (from logs)
Did you bring the trees (and forests) into being? Or is it We Who causes them to be
We have made all this to remind you (of Us), and a skill (providing comfort) for those in the wilderness
So glorify and praise the name of your Supreme Lord
No, of course not! I swear by the position of the stars
And it is, indeed, a very solemn oath if you only knew
(I swear that) this (Qur´an) is certainly a noble recital
(Inscribed) in a well-guarded book
Only those who are (physically and ritually) clean, (are allowed to) touch it
(It is) a revelation from the Lord of the universe
Yet, do you shun this narrative (nonchalantly)
Do you make the denial (of the truth) your livelihood, (and respond to the blessings by rejecting the truth)
How about when (the soul of the dying) heaves up into the throat
At that time, you can do nothing but look on (helplessly)
Compared to you, We are closer to the one dying. But you cannot see
Thus, if (you think) you are not subject to reckoning, why can´t you
Return the soul back (to the dead), if you are (indeed) truthful
And if the dying person had been (the one) nearest (to Allah)
(He shall have) peace and tranquility, bounteous provisions and the blissful idyllic paradise
While if the (dying) person is among those of the right (side)
(He shall hear the greetings), "Peace be to you. (You are) among those of the right (side)."
But if the deceased happens to be among those who rejected and went astray
(He shall have) the hot boiling water ´to welcome´ him
And the roasting heat of the hellfire
Indeed! That is definitely and most certainly the absolute truth
So, (oh prophet)! glorify and praise the name of the Greatest, your Supreme Lord
