Dr. Mohammad Tahir-ul-Qadri rendition of Surah The Event, The Inevitable, That Which is Coming(al-Waqi`ah)
56:1 When what is to occur (the Hour of Resurrection) will occur,
56:2 There is no falsehood in its occurrence.
56:3 (That Hour) will lower (some) and raise (some others) high.
56:4 When the earth will tremor and then shake violently,
56:5 And the mountains will be crumbled into bits,
56:6 Then will become dust particles spread in the air,
56:7 And you will be divided into three classes.
56:8 So (first) those on the Right Hand; what a class the Right Hand will be!
56:9 And (second) those on the Left Hand; (in what miserable plight will be) the Left Hand party!
56:10 And (third) the Excellent; (they) are the Foremost.
56:11 It is they who will be the ones drawn near (to Allah).
56:12 (They will live) in the Gardens of Bliss.
56:13 A large group (of those drawn near) will be from the earlier people.
56:14 And a small number (amongst them) will be from the later generations.
56:15 (Those drawn near) will be on the thrones ornamented with gold,
56:16 Reclining there on cushions, face to face.
56:17 The serving youths, rapt always in the same state of being, will go round them.
56:18 (They will be attending) carrying bowls, ewers and cups filled with (transparent) drink of (nearness) from the free-flowing springs.
56:19 By (drinking) this, they will have neither headache nor derangement of senses (and stupefaction).
56:20 And (the servants of Paradise) will be (roaming about) with fruits which (the ones drawn near) will like,
56:21 And (there will be) bird-meat as well which they (the ones drawn near) will desire.
56:22 And also (in their companionship will be) maidens with wide lovely eyes,
56:23 Like pearls kept hidden, well-guarded.
56:24 (That) will be the reward of the (pious) works which they used to do.
56:25 There they will hear nothing absurd nor any word of sin,
56:26 But (these people of peace will hear) only one thing (from all sides:) ‘Peace, Peace.’
56:27 And those of the Right Hand; what a class the Right Hand are!
56:28 Amid thornless lote-trees,
56:29 And layers of banana fruit,
56:30 And long-stretching, (wide-spreading) shades,
56:31 And flowing, gushing waters,
56:32 And (they will be rejoicing) in abundance of fruits.
56:33 They will be neither exhausted nor restricted (to eat).
56:34 And (they) will be (staying) on raised (splendid) floors.
56:35 Surely, We have created these (maidens) as a special creation (reflecting beauty and refinement).
56:36 Then We have made them virgins,
56:37 The ardently loving (wives) of the same age.
56:38 These (maidens and other bounties) are for those on the Right Hand.
56:39 A large group of them will be from the earlier people.
56:40 And from later generations will (also) be a large group (amongst them).
56:41 And those of the Left Hand; what (an evil people) on the Left Hand are!
56:42 They will be amid fierce, hot wind of Hell and simmering water,
56:43 And under the shadow of black smoke.
56:44 That will neither (ever) cool nor be pleasing.
56:45 No doubt, these (inmates of Hell) lived luxuriously before this (in the world),
56:46 And obstinately persisted in great sin (of denying Allah and setting up partners with Him).
56:47 And they used to say: ‘When we are dead and become (a heap of) dust and (decomposed bones), shall we then be raised up (alive again)?
56:48 And shall our ancestors too (be given life)?’
56:49 Say: ‘Indeed, the earlier and the later,
56:50 (All of them) will be gathered together on a fixed Hour of an appointed Day.
56:51 Then surely, O strayed people, deniers,
56:52 You will certainly eat of thorny (cactus) tree,
56:53 And will fill your stomachs with it.
56:54 And (you) will drink boiling water over it,
56:55 Drinking as a thirst-stricken camel drinks.’
56:56 This will be their feast on the Day of Resurrection.
56:57 It is We Who created you. Then why do you not confirm (resurrection)?
56:58 Well, give your view: the semen (sperm drop) that you ejaculate (into the womb)—
56:59 Is it you who create (a human being) from it, or are We the Creator?
56:60 It is We Who have decreed death amongst you, and We are not helpless either (to bring you back to life after this).
56:61 Nor are We (powerless) to change others into the like of you in your place and make you grow into a form which you do not know.
56:62 And surely, you have learnt (the reality of) the first creation. Then why do you not accept advice?
56:63 Well, give your view: the (seed) that you cultivate—
56:64 Is it you who make (the crop) grow from it, or are We its Grower?
56:65 If We so intend, We would crumble it to pieces. Then you would only be struck with awe and shame!
56:66 (And you may say:) ‘We are punished with ransom;
56:67 Rather we are seized by misfortune.’
56:68 Well, give your view: the water that you drink—
56:69 Have you sent it down from the cloud, or are We its Sender?
56:70 If We will, We can make it bitter. Then why do you not give thanks?
56:71 Well, give your view: the fire that you kindle—
56:72 Have you grown its tree, or are We its Grower?
56:73 It is We Who have made it (the fire of tree) a reminder (of the Fire of Hell, an admonition and a warning) and a source of profit and comfort for the travellers in forests.
56:74 So always glorify the Name of your Lord, Most Magnificent.
56:75 So I swear by the places where different portions of the Qur’an descend (on the Arab Messenger).*
56:76 And this is a mighty oath if you realize.
56:77 Surely, this is a Glorious Qur’an (which is being sent down on the most Glorious Messenger [blessings and peace be upon him]).
56:78 It has been (inscribed) in al-Lawh al-Mahfuz (the Preserved Tablet) before this.
56:79 No one can touch it except the purified (and cleansed) ones.
56:80 It has been sent down by the Lord of all the worlds.
56:81 So is it this Revelation that you disdain?
56:82 And you have made your means of subsistence (and fortune) to reject it!
56:83 Then why do you not (make the soul return) when it reaches the throat (to pass away)?
56:84 And at that moment, you do nothing but helplessly look on!
56:85 And We are nearer to him (the dying one) than you but you do not see (Us).
56:86 Then if you are under no one’s command and control, why do you not (do this),
56:87 That you turn that soul back if you are truthful?
56:88 Then if he (who died) was of those drawn near,
56:89 For him is Paradise packed with bounties, pleasure and delight and spiritual sustenance and comforts.
56:90 And if he was of those on the Right Hand,
56:91 Then (it will be said to him:) ‘Peace for you from those on the Right Hand! (Or, O Prophet, peace on you from those on the Right Hand!)’
56:92 But if he (who died) was of the strayed beliers,
56:93 Then he will be entertained with scalding, boiling water.
56:94 And his (end) is the admission to Hell.
56:95 Assuredly, this is the absolute truth of certitude.
56:96 So always glorify the Name of your Lord, Most Magnificent.
