Al-Waqi'a ("The Event")
(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!
(56:59) 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.
