Hasan Al-Fatih Qaribullah rendition of Surah The Event, The Inevitable, That Which is Coming(al-Waqi`ah)
56:1 When the Event (the resurrection) comes
56:2 there is no denying its coming
56:3 (it will) abase (some) and exalt (others).
56:4 When the earth is shaken
56:5 and the mountains fragmented
56:6 becoming scattered dust,
56:7 you shall be divided into three parties,
56:8 Companions of the Right, what are the Companions of the Right?
56:9 Companions of the Left, what are the Companions of the Left?
56:10 And the Outstrippers, the Outstrippers
56:11 those are they brought near (to their Lord)
56:12 in the Gardens of Delight,
56:13 a host of the ancients
56:14 but only a few from the later generations.
56:15 on lavish couches
56:16 they shall recline, facing each other,
56:17 (and there) shall wait on them immortal youths
56:18 with goblets and ewers, and a cup from a spring
56:19 that will neither make the head throb, nor intoxicate,
56:20 with fruits of their own choice
56:21 and any flesh of fowl that they desire.
56:22 And wideeyed houris
56:23 like hidden pearls,
56:24 a recompense for all that they did.
56:25 There they shall hear no idle talk, no cause of sin,
56:26 but only the saying: 'Peace, Peace! '
56:27 The Companions of the Right
56:28 (will be) among thornless Lote trees.
56:29 Bananatrees, piled
56:30 and continuous shade,
56:31 and flowing water
56:32 and an abundance of fruits,
56:33 unfailing and not forbidden.
56:34 And couches raised up.
56:35 Indeed We formed them (the houris and all believing women),
56:36 and made them virgins,
56:37 chaste, loving companions of the same age
56:38 for the Companions of the Right
56:39 a multitude of the ancients,
56:40 and a multitude of the later people.
56:41 As for the Companions of the Left
56:42 (they shall live) amid burning winds and boiling water,
56:43 in the shadow of a smoking blaze,
56:44 neither cool nor good.
56:45 Before they lived at ease,
56:46 and persisted in the great sin
56:47 and constantly said: 'What, when we are dead and become dust and bones, shall we then be restored to life?
56:48 What, and our fathers, the ancients? '
56:49 Say: 'Those of ancient times and those of later times
56:50 shall be gathered together to the appointed time on a known Day. '
56:51 Then you went astray, you that belied,
56:52 you shall eat (the fruit) of the Tree of Zakkum.
56:53 You shall fill your bellies with it,
56:54 and drink boiling water on top of that,
56:55 and you will drink as the lapping of thirsty camels.
56:56 Such shall be your hospitality on the Day of Recompense.
56:57 We created you, why will you not believe!
56:58 Have you thought about what (sperm) you ejaculate?
56:59 Did you create it, or are We the Creator?
56:60 It was We who decreed death among you. We will not be surpassed
56:61 that We will change you and cause you to grow again in a way you do not know.
56:62 You have surely known of the first creation. Why then, will you not remember!
56:63 Ponder upon the soil you till,
56:64 is it you that sow it, or are We the Sower?
56:65 If We will, We would make it broken stubble and you would remain wondering,
56:66 (Saying:) 'We are laden with debts!
56:67 Rather, we have been prevented! '
56:68 Have you thought about the water you drink?
56:69 Is it you that send it down from the clouds or We?
56:70 If We will, We would make it bitter, why then do you not give thanks?
56:71 Have you thought about the fire you kindle?
56:72 Is it you that originated its tree, or are We the Originator?
56:73 We have made it a reminder, and a blessing to the traveler.
56:74 Then, exalt the Name of your Lord, the Great.
56:75 I swear by the fallings of the stars
56:76 and that is a mighty oath, if you but knew
56:77 it is indeed a Glorious Koran,
56:78 in a Book protected (from tampering)
56:79 which none shall touch except the purified;
56:80 a sending down from the Lord of all the Worlds.
56:81 What, do you hold this discourse in disdain,
56:82 do you make it your provision to belie it?
56:83 Why, then, when the soul leaps up to the throat of the dying
56:84 and you are watching at that time
56:85 We are nearer to him than you, but you do not see
56:86 why then, if you are not revived,
56:87 do you not restore his soul, if you are truthful?
56:88 If he is among the near
56:89 there shall be calmness and ease, a Garden of Delight.
56:90 If he is a Companion of the Right
56:91 (he will be greeted with): 'Peace be upon you, Companion of the Right! '
56:92 But, if he is of those who belied, and went astray,
56:93 there shall be a hospitality of boiling water,
56:94 and a roasting in Hell.
56:95 Indeed, this is the certain truth.
56:96 So exalt the Name of your Lord, the Great.
