56:1  When the inevitable happens;
56:2  None shall call its happening a lie.
56:3  Abasing, exalting.
56:4  When the earth shall quake, quaking.
56:5  And mountains shall crumble, crumbling,
56:6  And become a scattered dust.
56:7  And you shall be three kinds;
56:8  Then the fellows of the right - what are the fellows of the right?
56:9  And the fellows of the left - what are the fellows of the left?
56:10  And the foremost, the foremost.
56:11  Those are the ones brought near,
56:12  In the Garden of pleasure.
56:13  A crowd of the former people,
56:14  And a few of the later people.
56:15  On gold-weft couches,
56:16  Reclining on them, face to face.
56:17  There will go round them perpetual children,
56:18  With cups and ewers and a cup of wine from a flowing spring;
56:19  No headache shall they feel therefrom, nor shall they be intoxicated.
56:20  And fruit of what they select;
56:21  And flesh of fowl as they desire;
56:22  And wide-eyed houris
56:23  Like hidden pearls;
56:24  A reward for what they used to do.
56:25  They shall hear no idle speech there and no sin;
56:26  Only the speech, 'Peace, Peace.'
56:27  And the fellows of the right - what are the fellows of the right?
56:28  Amid thornless lote trees.
56:29  And talh trees with piles of fruit;
56:30  And outspread shade,
56:31  And water poured out;
56:32  And fruit in abundance,
56:33  Neither failing nor forbidden;
56:34  And beds upraised.
56:35  Indeed, We have produced them a production.
56:36  And We have made them virgins,
56:37  Darlings of equal age
56:38  For the fellows of the right.
56:39  A crowd of the former people,
56:40  And a crowd of the later people.
56:41  And the fellows of the left - what are the fellows of the left?
56:42  In hot blasts and hot water;
56:43  And a shade of black smoke,
56:44  Neither cool nor generous.
56:45  Indeed, they were affluent before that,
56:46  And they used to persist in the great sin;
56:47  And they used to say, 'When we die and have become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be raised?
56:48  And our forefathers?'
56:49  Say, 'Indeed, the former and the later people
56:50  Shall surely be gathered together to an appointed place of a known day.'
56:51  Then indeed you, O you who err! Who say it is a lie.
56:52  Shall surely eat of a tree of Zaqqum.
56:53  And fill bellies with it.
56:54  And drink over it of hot water.
56:55  And drink as drinks the thirsty camel.
56:56  This is their entertainment on the Day of Judgment.
56:57  We created you, so why do you not admit the truth?
56:58  Have you considered what you emit?
56:59  Do you create it or are We the creator?
56:60  We have decreed amongst you death; and We are not to be outrun;
56:61  That We may change your likenesses and make you what you know not.
56:62  And certainly you know the first creation, why then do you not remember?
56:63  Have you considered what you till?
56:64  Do you make it grow, or are We the grower?
56:65  If We willed We could surely make it grit, so you would pause to marvel:
56:66  'Indeed, we surely have got into debt;
56:67  Nay, we are deprived.'
56:68  Have you considered the water which you drink?
56:69  Do you send it down from the clouds, or are We the senders?
56:70  If We willed We could make it bitter; so why are you not grateful?
56:71  Have you considered the fire which you strike?
56:72  Do you produce the tree that gives it, or are We the producer?
56:73  We have made it a memorial and a chattel for the traveller of the desert.
56:74  So glorify the name of your Lord, the Great.
56:75  And I swear by the positions of the stars;
56:76  And indeed, it is surely a great oath if you could know;
56:77  Indeed, it is surely a noble Quran -
56:78  In a book well-protected.
56:79  None touch it except the purified.
56:80  A revelation from the Lord of the worlds.
56:81  Is it this discourse that you scorn?
56:82  And make your provision that you call it a lie?
56:83  Why then - when it comes up to the throat,
56:84  And you at that time look on,
56:85  And we are nearer to him than you, but you cannot see, -
56:86  Then why, if you are not to be judged,
56:87  Do you not send it back, if you are truthful?
56:88  But either, if he is of those brought near,
56:89  Then rest and fragrance and a Garden of pleasure.
56:90  And, if he is of the fellows of the right,
56:91  Then 'Peace to you.' From the fellows of the right.
56:92  But if he is of those who say it is a lie, - who err.
56:93  Then an entertainment of hot water.
56:94  And broiling in Hell.
56:95  Indeed, this is surely certain truth.
56:96  So glorify the name of your Lord, the Great.
