Al-Waqi'a ("The Event")

Jump to: navigation, search

(56:0) In the name of God, the Gracious, the Compassionate.

(56:1) When the inevitable comes to pass.

(56:2) Nothing can stop it from happening.

(56:3) Abasing, exalting.

(56:4) When the earth will be shaken a terrible shake.

(56:5) The mountains will be wiped out.

(56:6) So that they become only scattered dust.

(56:7) You will be in three groupings.

(56:8) So those on the right; who will be from those on the right?

(56:9) Those on the left; who will be from those on the left?

(56:10) Those foremost; who will be from those foremost?

(56:11) They will be the ones who are brought near.

(56:12) In the paradises of bliss.

(56:13) Many from the first generations.

(56:14) A few from the later generations.

(56:15) Upon luxurious furnishings.

(56:16) Residing in them, neighboring each other.

(56:17) Moving amongst them will be immortal children.

(56:18) With cups and pitchers,

(56:19) Drinks which are pure.

(56:20) They do not run out, nor do they get bored.

(56:21) Fruits of their choice.

(56:22) Meat of birds that they desire.

(56:23) Wonderful companions, like pearls which are sheltered.

(56:24) A reward for their works.

(56:25) They never hear any nonsense therein, nor sinful utterances.

(56:26) Only the utterances of: "Peace. Peace."

(56:27) Those on the right; who will be with those on the right?

(56:28) In lush orchards.

(56:29) Fruit-trees which are ripe.

(56:30) Extended shade.

(56:31) Flowing water.

(56:32) Many fruits.

(56:33) Neither ending; nor forbidden.

(56:34) Raised furnishings.

(56:35) We have produced them in a special way.

(56:36) Made them young.

(56:37) A perfect match.

(56:38) For those on the right side.

(56:39) Many from the early generations.

(56:40) Many from the later generations.

(56:41) Those on the left, who will be from those on the left?

(56:42) In fierce hot winds and boiling water.

(56:43) A shade that is unpleasant.

(56:44) Neither cool, nor helpful.

(56:45) They used to be indulged in luxury before this.

(56:46) They persisted in the great blasphemy.

(56:47) They used to say, "After we die and turn to dust and bones, shall we then get resurrected?"

(56:48) "As well as our forefathers?"

(56:49) Say, "The people of old and the later generations,"

(56:50) "Will be summoned to a meeting on a predetermined day."

(56:51) "Then you, O rejecting strayers,"

(56:52) "Will eat from the tree of Bitterness,"

(56:53) "Filling your bellies therewith,"

(56:54) "Then drinking on top of it boiling water,"

(56:55) "So you will drink like thirsty camels!"

(56:56) Such is their share on the day of Judgment.

(56:57) We have created you, if you could only acknowledge!

(56:58) Have you noted ejaculation that You produce?

(56:59) Did you create it, or were We the Ones who created it?

(56:60) We have predetermined death for you. Nothing can stop Us,

(56:61) From transforming your forms, and establishing you in what you do not know.

(56:62) You have come to know about the first creation. If only you would remember.

(56:63) Have you noted the crops you reap?

(56:64) Did you grow them, or were We the Ones who grew them?

(56:65) If We wished, We could turn them into hay. Then you would be left in wonderment:

(56:66) "We are lost."

(56:67) "No, we are deprived!"

(56:68) Have you noted the water you drink?

(56:69) Did you send it down from the clouds, or was it We who sent it down?

(56:70) If We wished, We could make it salty. If only you would give thanks.

(56:71) Have you noted the fire you kindle?

(56:72) Did you initiate its tree, or was it We who initiated it?

(56:73) We rendered it a reminder, and a useful tool for the users.

(56:74) You shall glorify the name of your Lord, the Great.

(56:75) I do swear by the positions of the stars.

(56:76) This is an oath, if you only knew, that is great.

(56:77) It is an honorable Quran.

(56:78) In a protected record.

(56:79) None can grasp it except those pure.

(56:80) A revelation from the Lord of the worlds.

(56:81) Are you disregarding this hadith?

(56:82) You made your denial your livelihood?

(56:83) So when the time comes and it reaches your throat.

(56:84) At that moment you look around.

(56:85) We are closer to it than you are, but you do not see.

(56:86) If it is true that you do not owe any account.

(56:87) Then return it, if you are truthful?

(56:88) So, if he is one of those who are made near.

(56:89) Then joy, and rose buds, and paradises of bliss.

(56:90) If he is one of the people of the right.

(56:91) Then: "Peace" from the people of the right.

(56:92) But if he is one of the deniers, the strayers.

(56:93) Then an abode of boiling water.

(56:94) A burning in hell.

(56:95) This is the absolute truth.

(56:96) You shall glorify the name of your Lord, the Great.
