In The Name Of Allah The Entirely Merciful The Especially Merciful
56:1 When the Occurrence occurs,
56:2 There is, at its occurrence, no denial.
56:3 It will bring down [some] and raise up [others].
56:4 When the earth is shaken with convulsion
56:5 And the mountains are broken down, crumbling
56:6 And become dust dispersing.
56:7 And you become [of] three kinds:
56:8 Then the companions of the right - what are the companions of the right?
56:9 And the companions of the left - what are the companions of the left?
56:10 And the forerunners, the forerunners –
56:11 Those are the ones brought near [to Allah ]
56:12 In the Gardens of Pleasure,
56:13 A [large] company of the former peoples
56:14 And a few of the later peoples,
56:15 On thrones woven [with ornament],
56:16 Reclining on them, facing each other.
56:17 There will circulate among them young boys made eternal
56:18 With vessels, pitchers and a cup [of wine] from a flowing spring –
56:19 No headache will they have therefrom, nor will they be intoxicated –
56:20 And fruit of what they select
56:21 And the meat of fowl, from whatever they desire.
56:22 And [for them are] fair women with large, [beautiful] eyes,
56:23 The likenesses of pearls well-protected,
56:24 As reward for what they used to do.
56:25 They will not hear therein ill speech or commission of sin –
56:26 Only a saying: "Peace, peace."
56:27 The companions of the right - what are the companions of the right?
56:28 [They will be] among lote trees with thorns removed
56:29 And [banana] trees layered [with fruit]
56:30 And shade extended
56:31 And water poured out
56:32 And fruit, abundant [and varied],
56:33 Neither limited [to season] nor forbidden,
56:34 And [upon] beds raised high.
56:35 Indeed, We have produced the women of Paradise in a [new] creation
56:36 And made them virgins,
56:37 Devoted [to their husbands] and of equal age,
56:38 For the companions of the right [who are]
56:39 A company of the former peoples
56:40 And a company of the later peoples.
56:41 And the companions of the left - what are the companions of the left?
56:42 [They will be] in scorching fire and scalding water
56:43 And a shade of black smoke,
56:44 Neither cool nor beneficial.
56:45 Indeed they were, before that, indulging in affluence,
56:46 And they used to persist in the great violation,
56:47 And they used to say, "When we die and become dust and bones, are we indeed to be resurrected?
56:48 And our forefathers [as well]?"
56:49 Say, [O Muhammad], "Indeed, the former and the later peoples
56:50 Are to be gathered together for the appointment of a known Day."
56:51 Then indeed you, O those astray [who are] deniers,
56:52 Will be eating from trees of zaqqum
56:53 And filling with it your bellies
56:54 And drinking on top of it from scalding water
56:55 And will drink as the drinking of thirsty camels.
56:56 That is their accommodation on the Day of Recompense.
56:57 We have created you, so why do you not believe?
56:58 Have you seen that which you emit?
56:59 Is it you who creates it, or are We the Creator?
56:60 We have decreed death among you, and We are not to be outdone
56:61 In that We will change your likenesses and produce you in that [form] which you do not know.
56:62 And you have already known the first creation, so will you not remember?
56:63 56:63 And have you seen that [seed] which you sow?
56:64 Is it you who makes it grow, or are We the grower?
56:65 If We willed, We could make it [dry] debris, and you would remain in wonder,
56:66 [Saying], "Indeed, we are [now] in debt;
56:67 Rather, we have been deprived."
56:68 And have you seen the water that you drink?
56:69 Is it you who brought it down from the clouds, or is it We who bring it down?
56:70 If We willed, We could make it bitter, so why are you not grateful?
56:71 And have you seen the fire that you ignite?
56:72 Is it you who produced its tree, or are We the producer?
56:73 We have made it a reminder and provision for the travelers,
56:74 So exalt the name of your Lord, the Most Great.
56:75 Then I swear by the setting of the stars,
56:76 And indeed, it is an oath - if you could know - [most] great.
56:77 Indeed, it is a noble Qur'an
56:78 In a Register well-protected;
56:79 None touch it except the purified.
56:80 [It is] a revelation from the Lord of the worlds.
56:81 Then is it to this statement that you are indifferent
56:82 And make [the thanks for] your provision that you deny [the Provider]?
56:83 Then why, when the soul at death reaches the throat
56:84 And you are at that time looking on –
56:85 And Our angels are nearer to him than you, but you do not see –
56:86 Then why do you not, if you are not to be recompensed,
56:87 Bring it back, if you should be truthful?
56:88 And if the deceased was of those brought near to Allah ,
56:89 Then [for him is] rest and bounty and a garden of pleasure.
56:90 And if he was of the companions of the right,
56:91 Then [the angels will say], "Peace for you; [you are] from the companions of the right."
56:92 But if he was of the deniers [who were] astray,
56:93 Then [for him is] accommodation of scalding water
56:94 And burning in Hellfire
56:95 Indeed, this is the true certainty,
56:96 So exalt the name of your Lord, the Most Great.
