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 protected
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.
