A.L. Bilal Muhammad et al (2018) rendition of Surah The Event, The Inevitable, That Which is Coming(al-Waqi`ah)
56:1 When the inevitable event comes to pass
56:2 Then will no soul entertain falsehood concerning its coming
56:3 Many will it bring low, many will it exalt
56:4 When the earth will be shaken to its depths
56:5 And the mountains will be crumbled to atoms
56:6 Becoming dust scattered abroad
56:7 And you will be sorted out into three classes
56:8 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 those foremost, will be foremost
56:11 These will be those nearest to God
56:12 In gardens of bliss
56:13 A number of people from those of the past
56:14 And a few from those of later times
56:15 On thrones encrusted
56:16 Reclining on them, facing each other
56:17 Around them will be youth of perpetual innocence
56:18 With goblets, bowls, and cups filled from clear-flowing fountains
56:19 No after-ache will they receive from it, nor will they suffer intoxication
56:20 And fruits, any they may select
56:21 And the meat of fowl, any that they may desire
56:22 And companions with beautiful eyes
56:23 Like pearls well guarded
56:24 A reward for the deeds of their past
56:25 Neither frivolousness will they hear therein, nor any taint of harm
56:26 Only the saying, “Peace, peace.
56:27 The companions of the right hand, what are the companions of the right hand
56:28 They will be among lotus trees without thorns
56:29 Among Talh trees with flowers piled one above another
56:30 In shade long extended
56:31 By water flowing constantly
56:32 And fruit in abundance
56:33 Whose season is not limited, nor prevented
56:34 And on thrones, raised high
56:35 We have created their companions of a special creation
56:36 And made them virgin - pure
56:37 Beloved, equal in age
56:38 For the companions of the right hand
56:39 A number from those in the past
56:40 And a number from those of later times
56:41 The companions of the left hand, who will be the companions of the left hand
56:42 They will be in the middle of a fierce blast of fire and in boiling water
56:43 And in the shades of black smoke
56:44 Nothing to refresh, or to please them
56:45 Because they were accustomed to indulging, before that, with their wealth
56:46 And insisted on great harm
56:47 And they used to say, “What, when we die and become dust and bones, will we then indeed be raised up again
56:48 “And our ancestors?
56:49 Say, “Yes, those in the past and those of later times
56:50 “All will certainly be gathered together, for the meeting appointed for a day well-known
56:51 “Then will you truly, O you who go wrong by treating truth as falsehood
56:52 “You will surely taste of the Tree of Zaqqum
56:53 “Then and there you will fill your insides
56:54 “And drink boiling water on top of it
56:55 “Indeed you will drink like thirsty camels.
56:56 Such will be their entertainment on the Day of Punishment
56:57 It is We Who have created you. Why will you not witness the truth
56:58 Do you then see that which you throw out
56:59 Is it you who create it, or are We the Creators
56:60 We have decreed death for you, and We are not to be stopped
56:61 From changing your forms, and creating you in forms that you know not
56:62 And you certainly already know the first form of creation. Why then do you not praise Him
56:63 Do you see the seed that you sow in the ground
56:64 Is it you who cause it to grow, or are We the cause
56:65 Were it Our will, We could crumble it to dry powder, and you would be left in wonderment
56:66 Saying, “We are indeed left with debts
56:67 “Indeed we are shut out.
56:68 Do you see the water which you drink
56:69 Do you bring it down from the cloud or do We
56:70 If it were Our will, We could make it salty. So why do you not give thanks
56:71 Do you see the fire which you kindle
56:72 Is it you who causes the tree to grow which feeds the fire, or do We cause it to grow
56:73 We have made it a memorial, an article of comfort, and convenience for the denizens of deserts
56:74 Then glorify with praises the name of your Lord, the Supreme
56:75 Furthermore, I call to witness the setting of the stars
56:76 And that is indeed a mighty adjuration if you only knew
56:77 That this is indeed a Quran most honorable
56:78 In a book well guarded
56:79 Which none will touch but those who are clean
56:80 A revelation from the Guardian Evolver of all the systems of knowledge
56:81 Is it such a message that you would hold in light esteem
56:82 And have you made it your life to declare it false
56:83 Then why do you not intervene when the soul reaches the throat
56:84 But you just stand there looking on
56:85 But We are nearer to him than you, but you see not
56:86 Then why do you not, if you are exempt from account
56:87 Call back the soul, if you are truthful
56:88 Then if he is of those nearest to God
56:89 There is for him rest and satisfaction, and a garden of pleasure
56:90 And if he is of the companions of the right hand
56:91 Then for him is the salutation, “Peace be unto you,” from the companions of the right hand
56:92 And if he is of those who treat truth as false, and who go wrong
56:93 For him is entertainment with boiling water
56:94 And burning in hellfire
56:95 Indeed, this is the truth with certainty
56:96 So glorify with praises the name of your Lord, the Supreme
