56:1  When the event (the Day of Resurrection) will befall,
56:2  there will be no denying of its befalling,
56:3  it will bring low (to some), it will exalt (for others).
56:4  When the earth will be shaken with a terrible shake,
56:5  and the mountains will be powdered to dust,
56:6  so that they will become floating dust particles.
56:7  And then you all will be in 3 kinds (separate groups):
56:8  those on the right hand (receive their records in right hands) who will be those on the right hand (will go to Paradise);
56:9  and those on the left hand (receive their records in left hands) who will be those on the left hand (will go to hell);
56:10  and those foremost (in Islamic faith) will be foremost (in Paradise).
56:11  Those will be nearest (to Allah),
56:12  in the gardens of delight (Paradise).
56:13  A most of them will be from the first generations (who embraced Islam)
56:14  and a few will be from the later generations.
56:15  (They will be) on thrones of gold and precious stones,
56:16  reclining on them face to face,
56:17  immortal youths will go round serving them
56:18  with cups, jugs, and glasses of flowing wine,
56:19  from where they will neither get any pain of the head, nor they will get any intoxication.
56:20  (They will have) fruits of their own choice
56:21  and the flesh of fowls that they may desire,
56:22  and Huris (chaste virgins) with wide lovely eyes,
56:23  like guarded pearls,
56:24  as a reward for what they used to do (good deeds).
56:25  They will neither hear any vain talk therein nor any sinful speech,
56:26  but the saying of Salam! Salam! (greetings with peace)!
56:27  And those on the right hand who will be those on the right hand.
56:28  (They will be) among thornless lote-trees,
56:29  and among banana trees with fruits piled one above another,
56:30  and in long-extended shade,
56:31  and by water flowing constantly,
56:32  and fruit in plenty
56:33  whose season is not limited and their supply will not be cut off,
56:34  and on high raised couches or thrones.
56:35  Surely, We have created them (maidens) of special creation
56:36  and made them virgins
56:37  loving (their husbands only), equal in age,
56:38  for those on the right hand.
56:39  A large number will be from the first generation (who embraced Islam)
56:40  and a large number will be from the later generations.
56:41  And those on the left hand - will be those on the left hand.
56:42  (They will be) in fierce hot wind and boiling water,
56:43  and in the shadow of black smoke,
56:44  (that shadow is) neither cool, nor good.
56:45  Surely, they were indulged in luxury before,
56:46  and were persisting in great sin
56:47  and they used to say: “When we die and become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be resurrected?
56:48  and also our forefathers?”
56:49  Say (O Muhammad): “Surely, those of old, and those of later times,
56:50  all will surely be gathered together to an appointed meeting of well known Day.
56:51  Then surely, you the erring-ones, the deniers (of Resurrection),
56:52  surely you will eat of trees of Zaqqum,
56:53  then you will fill your bellies with it,
56:54  and drink from the boiling water on it,
56:55  yet, you will drink like thirsty camels!”
56:56  That will be their entertainment on the Day of Resurrection.
56:57  We created you, then why do you not believe?
56:58  You see what you emit (semen).
56:59  Is it you who create it (make this semen into a human), or are We the creator?
56:60  We have decreed the death among you and We are not unable
56:61  to transfigure you by others like yourselves and creates you in forms that you don’t know.
56:62  And indeed, you know the first form of creation (of Adam), why then do you not remember or take heed?
56:63  Do you see (the seed) that you sow (in the ground)?
56:64  Is it you who make it grow, or are We the grower?
56:65  If We willed, We could surely make it into dry pieces and you would be regretful:
56:66  (saying): “We are indeed ruined,
56:67  nay, but we are deprived (from the results of our work)!”
56:68  Do you see the water that you drink?
56:69  Is it you who cause it to come down from the rain clouds or are We Who cause it to come down?
56:70  If We willed, We could make it salty (undrinkable). Why then do you not give thanks (to Allah)?
56:71  Do you see the fire which you kindle?
56:72  Is it you who made the tree to grow, or are We the grower?
56:73  We have made it a reminder (of the hellfire in the Hereafter); and an article of use for the travelers.
56:74  Then glorify the name of your Lord, the great.
56:75  Surely I swear by the setting of the stars,
56:76  and surely, that is a great oath, if you know,
56:77  surely, this is indeed a honorable recital (the Qur’an)
56:78  in a book well-guarded (with Allah),
56:79  which none can touch it (the Qur’an with Allah) except the purified (angels),
56:80  a revelation (this Qur’an) from the Lord of the worlds.
56:81  Is it such a talk (this Qur’an) that you (disbelievers) deny
56:82  and (instead of thanking Allah for) your provision He gives you, you deny (Him)?
56:83  Then why do you not (intervene) when (the soul of a dying person) reaches the throat
56:84  while you are looking at that moment,
56:85  but We are nearer to him than you, but you don’t see (Allah).
56:86  Why do you not, if you are exempt from the reckoning and recompense,
56:87  bring back the soul (to its body) if you are truthful?
56:88  Then, if the dying person be of those brought near (to Allah),
56:89  for him there is rest and provision, and a garden of delights (Paradise).
56:90  Yet if the dying person be of those on the right hand,
56:91  then (there is greeting) ‘Peace be upon you’ for those from those on the right hand.
56:92  Yet if the dying person is one of the denying (of the Resurrection), the erring
56:93  then (for him there) is entertainment from boiling water,
56:94  and burning in hellfire.
56:95  Surely, this is an absolute truth with certainty.
56:96  So glorify with praises the name of your Lord, the greatest.
