Muhammad Mahmoud Ghali rendition of Surah The Event, The Inevitable, That Which is Coming(al-Waqi`ah)
56:1 When the Event (Literally: the Befalling) befalls
56:2 There is no lying about its befalling
56:3 Lowering (some), raising (others
56:4 When the earth will be convulsed with a (severe) convulsion
56:5 And the mountains crumbled with a violent crumbling
56:6 So that they become disseminated dust particles
56:7 And you will be three pairs
56:8 So (as for) the companions of the Rightness, (Or: the Right Hand) what (will become) of the companions of the Rightness
56:9 And the companions of the Sinister (befalling), what (will become) of the companions of the Sinister (befalling)? (Or: the Left Hand
56:10 And the Outstrippers, (i.e., those who precede others) the Outstrippers
56:11 Those are the ones to be brought near (in the Hereafter)
56:12 In the Gardens of Bliss
56:13 A throng of the earliest (people)
56:14 And a few of the latest (people)
56:15 Upon close-wrought (Or: plaited or encrusted) settees
56:16 Reclining upon them, facing one another
56:17 (There) go round them eternalized young men
56:18 With goblets, and beakers, and a cup from a profuse spring
56:19 Wherefrom their (heads) will not ache, nor will they feel exhausted
56:20 And (such) fruits as they will freely choose
56:21 And such flesh of birds as they crave for
56:22 And wide-eyed huris
56:23 As the likeness of nestled pearls
56:24 (This is) a recompense for whatever they were doing
56:25 Therein they will not hear any idle talk, nor any cause for vice
56:26 Except the blissful saying, "Peace! Peace!"
56:27 And the companions of the Right; what (will become) of the companions of the Right
56:28 They will be among thornless lote-trees
56:29 And Talh, (It may mean banana or acacia, which are compacted) tiered (one on another)
56:30 And extended shade
56:31 And outpoured water
56:32 And many (kinds) of fruit
56:33 Neither out of season, (Literally: cut off) nor out of reach- (i.e., unending fruits, that are not forbidden)
56:34 And raised beddings
56:35 Surely We have brought them (The huris) into being a (perfect) bringing up
56:36 So We have made them virgins
56:37 Chastely amorous, like of age
56:38 For the companions of the Right
56:39 A throng of the earliest (people,
56:40 And a throng of the later (people)
56:41 And the companions of the Left, what (will become) of the companions of the Left
56:42 (They will be) in pestilential wind, and scalding water
56:43 And the shade of a Smoking Blaze
56:44 Neither cool, nor refreshing (Literally: honorable)
56:45 Surely they were before that (living) in ease and luxury
56:46 And they used to persist in the monstrous vileness
56:47 And they used to say, "When we die and are dust and bones, will we surely be made to rise again
56:48 And (also) our earliest fathers?"
56:49 Say, (This is addressed to the Prophet) "Surely the earliest people and the later
56:50 Will indeed be gathered to the fixed time of a known Day
56:51 Thereafter, surely you, you erring ones, the beliers
56:52 Indeed you will eat of the trees of Zaqqum
56:53 So you will be filling therewith (your) bellies
56:54 Then you will be drinking thereon of scalding water
56:55 So you will be drinking (like) the drinking of diseased camels wandering with thirst."
56:56 This is their hospitality on the Day of Doom
56:57 We, Ever We, created you. Would you then sincerely admit (the Truth)
56:58 So, have you then seen what you ejaculate
56:59 Is it you who create it, or even are We the Creators
56:60 We, Ever We, have determined among you Death; and in no way are We, Ever We, outstripped
56:61 (So) that We may exchange the likes of you and bring you into being (again in a fashion) you do not know
56:62 And indeed you have already known the earliest bringing into being; (if) had you (known), you would have been mindful
56:63 Have you then seen (whatever) you till
56:64 Is it you who plant it or are We, Ever We, the Planters
56:65 If We had (so) decided We would indeed have made it crushed to pieces; then you would linger on (bitterly) exclaiming
56:66 "Surely we are indeed penalized (for debt)
56:67 No indeed, (but) we are dispossessed!"
56:68 Have you then seen the water you drink
56:69 Is it you who have sent it down from the rainy clouds or are We, Ever We, The Senders down
56:70 If We had (so) decided, We would have made it bitter; so had you only thanked (Us)
56:71 Have you then seen the fire you flare up
56:72 Is it you who brought its tree into being, or are We, Ever We, The Bringers into being
56:73 We, Ever We, have made it for a Reminder and an enjoyment for the denizens in the desert
56:74 So extol with the Name of your Lord, The Ever-Magnificent
56:75 Then no! I swear by the sites of the stars
56:76 And surely it is indeed a tremendous oath, if you only know (it)
56:77 Surely it is indeed an honorable Qur'an
56:78 In a nestled Book
56:79 Which none shall touch except the purified
56:80 A successive sending down from The Lord of the worlds
56:81 Is it, then, that you (i.e., the disbelievers) are dissimulating with this Discourse
56:82 And making your provision (for livelihood) that you cry lies
56:83 Then had it been that, when (the self) (i.e., the self of the dying person) reaches the gullet (of the dying)
56:84 And you at that while of time (sit) looking on
56:85 And We are nearer to him than you, but you do not behold
56:86 Then had you been (sure) that, in case you are other than being doomed
56:87 Make it return, if (ever) you are sincere
56:88 So, as for him who in case he is of those brought near (to Us)
56:89 Then (there will be) relief, and soothing comfort, and a Garden of Bliss
56:90 And as for him who in case he is of the companions of the Right
56:91 Then (it will be said), "Peace be upon you; (you are) one of the companions of the Right."
56:92 And as for him who in case he is of the beliers (and) the erring
56:93 Then (there will be) hospitality of scalding (water
56:94 And the roasting in Hell-Fire
56:95 Surely this is indeed the very Truth of Certitude
56:96 So extol with the Name of your Ever- Magnificent Lord
