56:1  When the inevitable occurs
56:2  Of its occurrence, there is no denial
56:3  Bringing low, raising high
56:4  When the earth is shaken with a shock
56:5  And the mountains are crushed and crumbled
56:6  And they become scattered dust
56:7  And you become three classes
56:8  Those on the Right—what of those on the Right
56:9  And those on the Left—what of those on the Left
56:10  And the forerunners, the forerunners
56:11  Those are the nearest
56:12  In the Gardens of Bliss
56:13  A throng from the ancients
56:14  And a small band from the latecomers
56:15  On luxurious furnishings
56:16  Reclining on them, facing one another
56:17  Serving them will be immortalized youth
56:18  With cups, pitchers, and sparkling drinks
56:19  Causing them neither headache, nor intoxication
56:20  And fruits of their choice
56:21  And meat of birds that they may desire
56:22  And lovely companions
56:23  The likenesses of treasured pearls
56:24  As a reward for what they used to do
56:25  Therein they will hear no nonsense, and no accusations
56:26  But only the greeting: 'Peace, peace.'
56:27  And those on the Right—what of those on the Right
56:28  In lush orchards
56:29  And sweet-smelling plants
56:30  And extended shade
56:31  And outpouring water
56:32  And abundant fruit
56:33  Neither withheld, nor forbidden
56:34  And uplifted mattresses
56:35  We have created them of special creation
56:36  And made them virgins
56:37  Tender and un-aging
56:38  For those on the Right
56:39  A throng from the ancients
56:40  And a throng from the latecomers
56:41  And those on the Left—what of those on the Left
56:42  Amid searing wind and boiling water
56:43  And a shadow of thick smoke
56:44  Neither cool, nor refreshing
56:45  They had lived before that in luxury
56:46  And they used to persist in immense wrongdoing
56:47  And they used to say, 'When we are dead and turned into dust and bones, are we to be resurrected
56:48  And our ancient ancestors too?'
56:49  Say, 'The first and the last
56:50  Will be gathered for the appointment of a familiar Day.'
56:51  Then you, you misguided, who deny the truth
56:52  Will be eating from the Tree of Bitterness
56:53  Will be filling your bellies with it
56:54  Will be drinking on top of it boiling water
56:55  Drinking like thirsty camels drink.
56:56  That is their hospitality on the Day of Retribution
56:57  We created you—if only you would believe
56:58  Have you seen what you ejaculate
56:59  Is it you who create it, or are We the Creator
56:60  We have decreed death among you, and We will not be outstripped
56:61  In replacing you with your likes, and transforming you into what you do not know
56:62  You have known the first formation; if only you would remember
56:63  Have you seen what you cultivate
56:64  Is it you who make it grow, or are We the Grower
56:65  If We will, We can turn it into rubble; then you will lament
56:66  'We are penalized
56:67  No, we are being deprived.'
56:68  Have you seen the water you drink
56:69  Is it you who sent it down from the clouds, or are We the Sender
56:70  If We will, We can make it salty. Will you not be thankful
56:71  Have you seen the fire you kindle
56:72  Is it you who produce its tree, or are We the Producer
56:73  We have made it a reminder, and a comfort for the users
56:74  So glorify the Name of your Great Lord
56:75  I swear by the locations of the stars
56:76  It is an oath, if you only knew, that is tremendous
56:77  It is a noble Quran
56:78  In a well-protected Book
56:79  None can grasp it except the purified
56:80  A revelation from the Lord of the Worlds
56:81  Is it this discourse that you take so lightly
56:82  And you make it your livelihood to deny it
56:83  So when it has reached the throat
56:84  As you are looking on
56:85  We are nearer to it than you are, but you do not see
56:86  If you are not held to account
56:87  Then bring it back, if you are truthful
56:88  But if he is one of those brought near
56:89  Then happiness, and flowers, and Garden of Delights
56:90  And if he is one of those on the Right
56:91  Then, 'Peace upon you,' from those on the Right
56:92  But if he is one of the deniers, the mistaken
56:93  Then a welcome of Inferno
56:94  And burning in Hell
56:95  This is the certain truth
56:96  So glorify the Name of your Lord, the Magnificen
