Ali Quli Qara'i rendition of Surah The Event, The Inevitable, That Which is Coming(al-Waqi`ah)
56:1 When the Imminent [Hour] befall
56:2 —there is no denying that it will befall&mdash
56:3 [it will be] lowering, exalting
56:4 When the earth is shaken violently
56:5 and the mountains are shattered into bit
56:6 and become scattered dust
56:7 you will be three groups
56:8 The People of the Right Hand —and what are the People of the Right Hand
56:9 And the People of the Left Hand —and what are the People of the Left Hand
56:10 And the Foremost Ones are the foremost ones
56:11 they are the ones brought near [to Allah]
56:12 [who will reside] in the gardens of bliss
56:13 A multitude from the former [generations]
56:14 and a few from the latter ones
56:15 On brocaded couche
56:16 reclining on them, face to face
56:17 They will be waited upon by immortal youths
56:18 with goblets and ewers and a cup of a clear wine
56:19 which neither causes them headache nor stupefaction
56:20 and such fruits as they prefe
56:21 and such flesh of fowls as they desire
56:22 and big-eyed houri
56:23 like guarded pearls
56:24 a reward for what they used to do
56:25 They will not hear therein any vain talk or sinful speech
56:26 but only the watchword, ‘Peace!’ ‘Peace!&rsquo
56:27 And the People of the Right Hand —what are the People of the Right Hand
56:28 Amid thornless lote tree
56:29 and clustered spathe
56:30 and extended shade
56:31 and ever-flowing wate
56:32 and abundant fruits
56:33 neither inaccessible, nor forbidden
56:34 and noble spouses
56:35 We have created them with a special creation
56:36 and made them virgins
56:37 loving, of a like age
56:38 for the People of the Right Hand
56:39 A multitude from the former [generations]
56:40 and a multitude from the latter [ones]
56:41 And the People of the Left Hand —what are the People of the Left Hand
56:42 Amid infernal miasma and boiling wate
56:43 and the shadow of a dense black smoke
56:44 neither cool nor beneficial
56:45 Indeed they had been affluent before this
56:46 and they used to persist in the great sin
56:47 And they used to say, ‘What! When we are dead and become dust and bones, shall we be resurrected
56:48 And our forefathers too?&rsquo
56:49 Say, ‘Indeed the former and latter generation
56:50 will all be gathered for the tryst of a known day
56:51 Then indeed, you, astray deniers
56:52 will surely eat from the Zaqqum tre
56:53 and stuff your bellies with it
56:54 and drink boiling water on top of it
56:55 drinking like thirsty camels.&rsquo
56:56 Such will be the hospitality they receive on the Day of Retribution
56:57 We created you. Then why do you not acknowledge it
56:58 Have you considered the sperm that you emit
56:59 Is it you who create it, or are We the creator
56:60 We have ordained death among you, and We are not to be outmaneuvere
56:61 from replacing you with your likes and recreating you in [a realm] you do not know
56:62 Certainly you have known the first genesis, then why do you not take admonition
56:63 Have you considered what you sow
56:64 Is it you who make it grow, or are We the grower
56:65 If We wish, We surely turn it into chaff, whereat you are left stunned [saying to yourselves,]
56:66 ‘Indeed we have suffered loss
56:67 Rather we are deprived!&rsquo
56:68 Have you considered the water that you drink
56:69 Is it you who bring it down from the rain cloud, or is it We who bring [it] down
56:70 If We wish We can make it bitter. Then why do you not give thanks
56:71 Have you considered the fire that you kindle
56:72 Was it you who caused its tree to grow, or were We the grower
56:73 It was We who made it a reminder and a boon for the desert-dwellers
56:74 So celebrate the Name of your Lord, the All-supreme
56:75 So I swear by the places where the stars set
56:76 And indeed it is a great oath, should you know
56:77 This is indeed a noble Qur’an
56:78 in a guarded Book
56:79 —no one touches it except the pure ones&mdash
56:80 gradually sent down from the Lord of all the worlds
56:81 What! Do you take lightly this discourse
56:82 And make your denial of it your vocation
56:83 So when it reaches the throat [of the dying person]
56:84 and at that moment you are looking o
56:85 —and We are nearer to him than you are, though you do not perceive&mdash
56:86 then why do you not, if you are not subjec
56:87 [to the Divine dispensation], restore it, should you be truthful
56:88 Then, if he be of those brought near
56:89 then ease, abundance, and a garden of bliss
56:90 And if he be of the People of the Right Hand
56:91 then ‘Peace be on you,’ [a greeting] from the People of the Right Hand
56:92 But if he be of the impugners, the astray ones
56:93 then a treat of boiling wate
56:94 and entry into hell
56:95 Indeed this is certain truth
56:96 So celebrate the Name of your Lord, the All-supreme
