Abdel Haleem rendition of Surah The Event, The Inevitable, That Which is Coming(al-Waqi`ah)
56:1 When that which is coming arrives
56:2 no one will be able to deny it has come
56:3 bringing low and raising high
56:4 When the earth is shaken violentl
56:5 and the mountains are ground to powde
56:6 and turn to scattered dust
56:7 then you will be sorted into three classes
56:8 Those on the Right––what people they are
56:9 Those on the Left––what people they are
56:10 And those in front––ahead indeed
56:11 For these will be the ones brought nearest to Go
56:12 in Gardens of Bliss
56:13 many from the pas
56:14 and a few from later generations
56:15 On couches of well-woven clot
56:16 they will sit facing each other
56:17 everlasting youths will go round among the
56:18 with glasses, flagons, and cups of a pure drin
56:19 that causes no headache or intoxication
56:20 [there will be] any fruit they choose
56:21 the meat of any bird they like
56:22 and beautiful companion
56:23 like hidden pearls
56:24 a reward for what they used to do
56:25 They will hear no idle or sinful talk there
56:26 only clean and wholesome speech
56:27 Those on the Right, what people they are
56:28 They will dwell amid thornless lote tree
56:29 and clustered acaci
56:30 with spreading shade
56:31 constantly flowing water
56:32 abundant fruits
56:33 unfailing, unforbidden
56:34 with incomparable companion
56:35 We have specially created–&ndash
56:36 virginal
56:37 loving, of matching age–&ndash
56:38 for those on the Right
56:39 many from the pas
56:40 and many from later generations
56:41 But those on the Left, what people they are
56:42 They will dwell amid scorching wind and scalding wate
56:43 in the shadow of black smoke
56:44 neither cool nor refreshing
56:45 Before, they overindulged in luxur
56:46 and persisted in great sin
56:47 always saying, ‘What? When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then be raised up
56:48 And our earliest forefathers too?&rsquo
56:49 Say [Prophet], ‘The earliest and latest generation
56:50 will all be gathered on a predetermined Da
56:51 and you who have gone astray and denied the trut
56:52 will eat from the bitter tree of Zaqqum
56:53 filling your bellies with it
56:54 and drink scalding water
56:55 lapping it like thirsty camels.&rsquo
56:56 This will be their welcome on the Day of Judgement
56:57 It was We who created you: will you not believe
56:58 Consider [the semen] you eject
56:59 do you create it yourselves or are We the Creator
56:60 We ordained death to be among you. Nothing could stop U
56:61 if We intended to change you and recreate you in a way unknown to you
56:62 You have learned how you were first created: will you not reflect
56:63 Consider the seeds you sow in the ground
56:64 is it you who make them grow or We
56:65 If We wished, We could turn your harvest into chaff and leave you to wail
56:66 ‘We are burdened with debt
56:67 we are bereft.&rsquo
56:68 Consider the water you drink
56:69 was it you who brought it down from the rain-cloud or We
56:70 If We wanted, We could make it bitter: will you not be thankful
56:71 Consider the fire you kindle
56:72 is it you who make the wood for it grow or We
56:73 We made it a reminder, and useful to those who kindle it
56:74 so [Prophet] glorify the name of your Lord, the Supreme
56:75 I swear by the positions of the stars
56:76 a mighty oath, if you only knew
56:77 that this is truly a noble Quran
56:78 in a protected Recor
56:79 that only the purified can touch
56:80 sent down from the Lord of all being
56:81 How can you scorn this statement
56:82 And how, in return for the livelihood you are given, can you deny it
56:83 When the soul of a dying man comes up to his throa
56:84 while you gaze on
56:85 We are nearer to him than you, though you do not see Us
56:86 why, if you are not to be judged
56:87 do you not restore his soul to him, if what you say is true
56:88 If that dying person is one of those who will be brought near to God
56:89 he will have rest, ease, and a Garden of Bliss
56:90 if he is one of those on the Right
56:91 [he will hear], ‘Peace be on you,’ from his companions on the Right
56:92 but if he is one of those who denied the truth and went astray
56:93 he will be welcomed with scalding water
56:94 He will burn in Hell
56:95 This is the certain truth
56:96 [Prophet], glorify the name of your Lord the Supreme
