Shakir rendition of Surah The Event, The Inevitable, That Which is Coming(al-Waqi`ah)
56:1 When the great event comes to pass
56:2 There is no belying its coming to pass-
56:3 Abasing (one party), exalting (the other)
56:4 When the earth shall be shaken with a (severe) shaking
56:5 And the mountains shall be made to crumble with (an awful) crumbling
56:6 So that they shall be as scattered dust
56:7 And you shall be three sorts
56:8 Then (as to) the companions of the right hand; how happy are the companions of the right hand
56:9 And (as to) the companions of the left hand; how wretched are the companions of the left hand
56:10 And the foremost are the foremost
56:11 These are they who are drawn nigh (to Allah)
56:12 In the gardens of bliss
56:13 A numerous company from among the first
56:14 And a few from among the latter
56:15 On thrones decorated
56:16 Reclining on them, facing one another
56:17 Round about them shall go youths never altering in age
56:18 With goblets and ewers and a cup of pure drink
56:19 They shall not be affected with headache thereby, nor shall they get exhausted
56:20 And fruits such as they choose
56:21 And the flesh of fowl such as they desire
56:22 And pure, beautiful ones
56:23 The like of the hidden pearls
56:24 A reward for what they used to do
56:25 They shall not hear therein vain or sinful discourse
56:26 Except the word peace, peace
56:27 And the companions of the right hand; how happy are the companions of the right hand
56:28 Amid thornless lote-trees
56:29 And banana-trees (with fruits), one above another
56:30 And extended shade
56:31 And water flowing constantly
56:32 And abundant fruit
56:33 Neither intercepted nor forbidden
56:34 And exalted thrones
56:35 Surely We have made them to grow into a (new) growth
56:36 Then We have made them virgins
56:37 Loving, equals in age
56:38 For the sake of the companions of the right hand
56:39 A numerous company from among the first
56:40 And a numerous company from among the last
56:41 And those of the left hand, how wretched are those of the left hand
56:42 In hot wind and boiling water
56:43 And the shade of black smoke
56:44 Neither cool nor honorable
56:45 Surely they were before that made to live in ease and plenty
56:46 And they persisted in the great violation
56:47 And they used to say: What! when we die and have become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be raised
56:48 Or our fathers of yore
56:49 Say: The first and the last
56:50 Shall most surely be gathered together for the appointed hour of a known day
56:51 Then shall you, O you who err and call it a lie
56:52 Most surely eat of a tree of Zaqqoom
56:53 And fill (your) bellies with it
56:54 Then drink over it of boiling water
56:55 And drink as drinks the thirsty camel
56:56 This is their entertainment on the day of requital
56:57 We have created you, why do you not then assent
56:58 Have you considered the seed
56:59 Is it you that create it or are We the creators
56:60 We have ordained death among you and We are not to be overcome
56:61 In order that We may bring in your place the likes of you and make you grow into what you know not
56:62 And certainly you know the first growth, why do you not then mind
56:63 Have you considered what you sow
56:64 Is it you that cause it to grow, or are We the causers of growth
56:65 If We pleased, We should have certainly made it broken down into pieces, then would you begin tb lament
56:66 Surely we are burdened with debt
56:67 Nay! we are deprived
56:68 Have you considered the water which you drink
56:69 Is it you that send it down from the clouds, or are We the senders
56:70 If We pleased, We would have made it salty; why do you not then give thanks
56:71 Have you considered the fire which you strike
56:72 Is it you that produce the trees for it, or are We the producers
56:73 We have made it a reminder and an advantage for the wayfarers of the desert
56:74 Therefore glorify the name of your Lord, the Great
56:75 But nay! I swear by the falling of stars
56:76 And most surely it is a very great oath if you only knew
56:77 Most surely it is an honored Quran
56:78 In a book that is protecte
56:79 None shall touch it save the purified ones
56:80 A revelation by the Lord of the worlds
56:81 Do you then hold this announcement in contempt
56:82 And to give (it) the lie you make your means of subsistence
56:83 Why is it not then that when it (soul) comes up to the throat
56:84 And you at that time look on-
56:85 And We are nearer to it than you, but you do not see-
56:86 Then why is it not-- if you are not held under authority-
56:87 That you send it (not) back-- if you are truthful
56:88 Then if he is one of those drawn nigh (to Allah)
56:89 Then happiness and bounty and a garden of bliss
56:90 And if he is one of those on the right hand
56:91 Then peace to you from those on the right hand
56:92 And if he is one of the rejecters, the erring ones
56:93 He shall have an entertainment of boiling water
56:94 And burning in hell
56:95 Most surely this is a certain truth
56:96 Therefore glorify the name of your Lord, the Great
