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.
