Safi Kaskas rendition of Surah The Event, The Inevitable, That Which is Coming(al-Waqi`ah)
56:1 When the Inevitable Event occurs,
56:2 no one will deny its occurrence.
56:3 Lowering some and raising others.
56:4 When the earth is shaken violently
56:5 and the mountains are crushed and crumble
56:6 and become scattered dust,
56:7 then you [human beings] will be divided into three separate groups:
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 those who are ahead upfront,
56:11 they are the ones brought near
56:12 in the Gardens of Bliss
56:13 They are a large group of the earlier generations
56:14 and a few of later generations,
56:15 They recline on luxurious woven couches.
56:16 Reclining on them, facing each other
56:17 circulating among them will be ever youthful beings
56:18 with vessels, pitchers and a cup of a pure drink
56:19 causing no headache and no intoxication.
56:20 There will be a selection of fruits
56:21 and any bird meat they desire
56:22 and Hoor Ein
56:23 like well-protected pearls,
56:24 a reward for what they used to do.
56:25 They will hear no idle or sinful talk there,
56:26 only the greeting: "Peace, peace."
56:27 Those on the right, what of those on the right?
56:28 [They will be] among thorns free lotus trees
56:29 and fruit-laden acacias
56:30 and extended shade,
56:31 outpouring water
56:32 abundant fruits
56:33 neither withheld nor forbidden,
56:34 on elevated daybeds
56:35 We have specially created them
56:36 originals,
56:37 perfectly created and perfectly matching.
56:38 For those of the right
56:39 a group of the earlier generation
56:40 and a group of the later generation.
56:41 Those of the left, what of those on the left?
56:42 [They will be] amidst scorching fire and scalding water
56:43 and a shade of black smoke,
56:44 neither cool nor refreshing.
56:45 They used to live luxuriously,
56:46 but they persisted in the greatest offenses against God,
56:47 And they used to say, "When we're dead and turned to dust and bones, shall we then be resurrected,
56:48 and our forefathers too?"
56:49 Say, "The former and the later people
56:50 will all be gathered on a predetermined Day."
56:51 Then you, you who are misguided and reject the truth,
56:52 will be eating from trees of Zaqqum.
56:53 You will be filling your bellies with it,
56:54 drinking boiling water on top of it,
56:55 drinking it like thirsty camels.
56:56 That will be their welcome on Judgment Day.
56:57 We created you, so why you do not believe?
56:58 Have you seen the semen which you ejaculate?
56:59 Is it you who creates it, or are We the Creator?
56:60 We have decreed death among you, and nothing can stop Us
56:61 if We want to replace you and to recreate you in a way that you know nothing about.
56:62 You have already known the first creation, so will you not remember?
56:63 Have you seen what you cultivate?
56:64 Is it you who makes it grow, or are We the grower?
56:65 If We wish, We can turn it into ruins, and you would be left to wonder,
56:66 [Saying], "we are now in debt;
56:67 Rather, We have been deprived."
56:68 And have you seen the water that you drink?
56:69 Is it you who sent it down from the clouds, or are We the Sender?
56:70 If We wish, We can make it bitter, why then you are not grateful?
56:71 And have you seen the fire that you kindle?
56:72 Is it you who produced its tree, or are We the Producer?
56:73 We have made it a reminder and provision for all who kindle it,
56:74 exalt, then, the glory of your Lord's Name; the Magnificent.
56:75 I swear by the positioning of the stars,
56:76 a tremendous oath, if you only knew,
56:77 it is a noble Qur'an
56:78 kept in a well-protected record;
56:79 where none will be allowed to touch it except the purified,
56:80 revealed gradually by the Lord of the worlds.
56:81 Is it then this statement that you are ridiculing
56:82 and you deny it as if your livelihood depends on it?
56:83 Why then, when the soul at death reaches the throat,
56:84 and you are at that time looking on,
56:85 when we're closer to him than you are, but you do not see.
56:86 Why then, if you are not dependent on Us,
56:87 don't you restore his soul back to him, if your claim is true?
56:88 If the deceased was of those brought near to God,
56:89 he will then have eternal harmony, eternal delight and a Garden of Bliss.
56:90 And if he was from those on the right,
56:91 then "Peace be to you, from your companions on the right."
56:92 But if he was from those who called the truth a lie and were misguided,
56:93 he will be welcomed with boiling water
56:94 and will burn in Hell.
56:95 This is the certain Truth,
56:96 exalt, then, the glory of your Lord's name; the Magnificent.
