56:1  When the event befalls,
56:2  there is no falsehood in its befalling,
56:3  (it will) bring down (some and) exalt (others).
56:4  When the earth will be shaken (with) a shaking
56:5  and the mountains will be crumbled (with) a crumbling,
56:6  so that they will become as scattered dust.
56:7  And you will become three kinds:
56:8  So the companions of the right hand. How will the companions of the right hand be?
56:9  And the companions of the left hand. How will the companions of the left hand be?
56:10  And the foremost are the foremost.
56:11  Those are the persons who will be brought near
56:12  in gardens of bliss,
56:13  numerous from among the ancients
56:14  and less from among the later,
56:15  (they will be) on couches encrusted (with gold and precious stones),
56:16  reclining on them facing one another.
56:17  Youths always staying (in attendance) will go around them
56:18  with bowls and beakers and cups (filled with drinks) from a spring.
56:19  They will not have headache from it nor will they be intoxicated.
56:20  And (they will have) fruits from what they choose
56:21  and flesh of birds from that which they desire,
56:22  and fair ones with wide beautiful eyes
56:23  resembling in likeness, hidden pearls,
56:24  a reward for that which they used to do.
56:25  They will hear therein nothing vain or sinful
56:26  but the statement, “Peace! Peace!”
56:27  And the companions of the right hand. How will the companions of the right hand be?
56:28  (They will be) among thorn less lote trees,
56:29  and clustered plantains,
56:30  and extending shade,
56:31  and water flowing continuously,
56:32  and fruits in plenty,
56:33  neither to be cut off nor forbidden,
56:34  and raised beds.
56:35  We have produced them (females, and they are such) creation
56:36  that We have made them virgins,
56:37  loving, equals in age
56:38  for the companions of the right hand.
56:39  Numerous from among the ancients,
56:40  and numerous from among the later.
56:41  And the companions of the left hand. How will the companions of the left hand be?
56:42  (They will be) in hot wind and boiling water,
56:43  and shadows of black smoke,
56:44  neither cool nor beneficial.
56:45  Before that (i.e. in the worldly life) they were well-off
56:46  and they used to persist in great sin,
56:47  and they used to say, “What! when we are dead and become (part of the) soil and bones, shall we indeed be raised (to life again),
56:48  and our forefathers (too)?”
56:49  Say, “Certainly, the ancients and the later,
56:50  all will be gathered at the appointed time on the known day.”
56:51  Then all of you ! O you who err and deny,
56:52  you will eat from the tree of Zaqqum
56:53  and fill your stomachs with it,
56:54  then over it you will drink from boiling water
56:55  and you will drink (as) a thirsty camel drinks.
56:56  This will be their entertainment on the day of judgment.
56:57  We have created you, then why do you not accept the truth?
56:58  Have you seen (the sperm) which you emit?
56:59  Is it you who have created it or are We the Creators?
56:60  We have destined death among you, and We are not to be overcome
56:61  in changing your likeness and producing you in (a state), the knowledge of which you do not have.
56:62  And you indeed know the first creation, so why are you not mindful?
56:63  Have you seen that which you sow?
56:64  Is it you who grow (the plants through) it or are We the Growers?
56:65  Had We willed, We could have made it broken pieces, then you would start wondering,
56:66  “We are (involved) in a lasting difficulty,
56:67  no, we are deprived.”
56:68  Have you seen the water which you drink?
56:69  Is it you who send it down from the cloud or are We those Who send it down?
56:70  Had We willed We could have made it bitter, so why are you not grateful?
56:71  Have you seen the fire which you kindle?
56:72  Is it you who produce the tree for it or are We the Producers?
56:73  We have made it a reminder (probably of hell fire) and a provision for the needy (wayfarer).
56:74  So glorify the name of your Great Fosterer.
56:75  So I do swear by the places of existence of the stars,
56:76  and that certainly is a great oath, if you only knew.
56:77  It is certainly an honoured Quran,
56:78  in a book that is protected,
56:79  none touch it except those who are clean,
56:80  sent down from the Fosterer of the worlds.
56:81  Then is it this statement which (is so important), that you take easy?
56:82  And you make it your livelihood, that you (go on) denying it!
56:83  So why is it not that when the (soul) reaches the throat,
56:84  and you are at that time looking on (waiting),
56:85  and We are nearer to the (dying person) than you, but not visible to you,
56:86  so why is it not, if you are not bound by any law,
56:87  (that you) bring the (soul) back, if you are truthful?
56:88  Then if he is from among those near (to Allah),
56:89  then (he will have) happiness and fragrance and the garden of bliss.
56:90  And if he is from among the companions of the right hand,
56:91  then (it will be said), “Peace for you, from those of the right hand.”
56:92  And if he is from among the deniers who are in error,
56:93  then the entertainment (for him) will be of boiling water
56:94  and entry in hell.
56:95  This indeed is the certain truth.
56:96  So glorify the name of your Great Fosterer.
