Ali Bakhtiari Nejad rendition of Surah The Event, The Inevitable, That Which is Coming(al-Waqi`ah)
56:1 When the event happens,
56:2 and its happening is not false,
56:3 it is lowering and elevating (humiliating and honoring).
56:4 When the earth is violently shaken,
56:5 and the mountains are totally disintegrated
56:6 and become scattered dust.
56:7 And you will be three types.
56:8 The associates of happiness (the fortunate people). Who are the fortunate people?
56:9 The associates of misery (the unfortunate people). Who are the unfortunate people?
56:10 And the pioneers (in devotion) are the pioneers (in the hereafter).
56:11 They are the close ones (to God),
56:12 in gardens of delight.
56:13 A large number of the earlier ones
56:14 and a few from the later ones.
56:15 On sofas lavishly decorated (with jewels and gold),
56:16 reclining on them, facing each other.
56:17 Immortal youths circulate among them,
56:18 with drinking glasses and jugs and cups of spring water.
56:19 They do not get headache and they do not get exhausted (and drunk) from it.
56:20 And from whatever fruits they choose,
56:21 and from whatever meat of birds they desire,
56:22 and appealing girls with beautiful eyes
56:23 like the hidden pearl (inside the shell),
56:24 as a reward for what they used to do.
56:25 They do not hear useless or sinful (talk) in it,
56:26 except a saying of peace (and well-being), peace (and well-being).
56:27 And the associates of the right hand (the fortunate), who are the fortunate?
56:28 Among thorn free Lote (Sidra) tree,
56:29 and banana trees piled up (with fruits),
56:30 and extended shade,
56:31 and flowing water,
56:32 and plenty of fruits,
56:33 not ending and not forbidden.
56:34 And dignified spouses
56:35 whom We created them perfectly,
56:36 and We made them virgins,
56:37 devoted (and loving), of equal age
56:38 for associates of the right hand (the fortunate),
56:39 a large number of the earlier ones
56:40 and a large number of the later ones.
56:41 And associates of the left hand (the unfortunate), who are the unfortunate?
56:42 In scorching wind and boiling water,
56:43 and shade of thick (black) smoke,
56:44 not cool and not nice.
56:45 Indeed they were rich (and wealthy) before this,
56:46 and they insisted on the great sin,
56:47 and they used to say: would we be raised when we die and become dust and bones?
56:48 Or our forefathers?
56:49 Say: indeed the earlier ones and the later ones
56:50 are certainly collected at an appointment of a known day.
56:51 Then indeed you, the misguided deniers,
56:52 are certainly eaters of Zaqqum tree,
56:53 and filling the stomachs from it,
56:54 then drinking boiling water over it,
56:55 and drinking as thirsty camels drink.
56:56 This is their entertainment on the judgment day.
56:57 We created you, so why do you not acknowledge?
56:58 What do you think of what you ejaculate?
56:59 Do you create it or are We the creators?
56:60 We mandated the death among you, and We will not be surpassed
56:61 in replacing (you with) the likes of you and producing you in (a form) that you do not know.
56:62 You have certainly known about the first creation, so why do you not take notice?
56:63 What do you think of what you plant?
56:64 Do you grow it, or are We the growers?
56:65 If We want, We make it into broken pieces, and leave you wondering
56:66 (saying): we certainly suffered losses,
56:67 no, but we are deprived.
56:68 What do you think of the water that you drink?
56:69 Did you send it down from the cloud, or are We the senders?
56:70 If We want, We make it bitter (and salty), so why are you not thankful?
56:71 What do you think of the fire that you light?
56:72 Did you make its tree, or are We the makers?
56:73 We made it a reminder and a provision for those living/traveling in the desert.
56:74 So glorify the name of your great Master.
56:75 So I swear by positions of the stars,
56:76 and it is a great oath if you knew,
56:77 indeed this is a noble Quran
56:78 in a concealed book,
56:79 none touch it except the purified ones,
56:80 a sending down from the Master of Human kind.
56:81 Do you take this saying lightly,
56:82 and you make it your livelihood to deny it?
56:83 So why not when it (life) reaches the throat
56:84 and you are watching at that moment,
56:85 while We are closer to him than you but you do not see,
56:86 then if you are not obligated, why don't
56:87 you return it (the soul to the body), if you are truthful.
56:88 But if he is one of the close ones (to God),
56:89 then ease and comfort and gardens of delight (are for him).
56:90 And if he is among associates of the right hand (the fortunate),
56:91 then peace (and well-being) for you among associates of the right hand.
56:92 And if he is among the misguided deniers
56:93 then entertainment of boiling water,
56:94 and entering (and burning in) hellfire (is for him).
56:95 And this is indeed the sure truth.
56:96 So glorify the name of your great Master.
