Talal A. Itani (new translation) rendition of Surah The Event, The Inevitable, That Which is Coming(al-Waqi`ah)
56:1 When the inevitable occurs.
56:2 Of its occurrence, there is no denial.
56:3 Bringing low, raising high.
56:4 When the earth is shaken with a shock.
56:5 And the mountains are crushed and crumbled.
56:6 And they become scattered dust.
56:7 And you become three classes.
56:8 Those on the Right—what of those on the Right?
56:9 And those on the Left—what of those on the Left?
56:10 And the forerunners, the forerunners.
56:11 Those are the nearest.
56:12 In the Gardens of Bliss.
56:13 A throng from the ancients.
56:14 And a small band from the latecomers.
56:15 On luxurious furnishings.
56:16 Reclining on them, facing one another.
56:17 Serving them will be immortalized youth.
56:18 With cups, pitchers, and sparkling drinks.
56:19 Causing them neither headache, nor intoxication.
56:20 And fruits of their choice.
56:21 And meat of birds that they may desire.
56:22 And lovely companions.
56:23 The likenesses of treasured pearls.
56:24 As a reward for what they used to do.
56:25 Therein they will hear no nonsense, and no accusations.
56:26 But only the greeting: 'Peace, peace.'
56:27 And those on the Right—what of those on the Right?
56:28 In lush orchards.
56:29 And sweet-smelling plants.
56:30 And extended shade.
56:31 And outpouring water.
56:32 And abundant fruit.
56:33 Neither withheld, nor forbidden.
56:34 And uplifted mattresses.
56:35 We have created them of special creation.
56:36 And made them virgins.
56:37 Tender and un-aging.
56:38 For those on the Right.
56:39 A throng from the ancients.
56:40 And a throng from the latecomers.
56:41 And those on the Left—what of those on the Left?
56:42 Amid searing wind and boiling water.
56:43 And a shadow of thick smoke.
56:44 Neither cool, nor refreshing.
56:45 They had lived before that in luxury.
56:46 And they used to persist in immense wrongdoing.
56:47 And they used to say, 'When we are dead and turned into dust and bones, are we to be resurrected?
56:48 And our ancient ancestors too?'
56:49 Say, 'The first and the last.
56:50 Will be gathered for the appointment of a familiar Day.'
56:51 Then you, you misguided, who deny the truth.
56:52 Will be eating from the Tree of Bitterness.
56:53 Will be filling your bellies with it.
56:54 Will be drinking on top of it boiling water.
56:55 Drinking like thirsty camels drink.
56:56 That is their hospitality on the Day of Retribution.
56:57 We created you—if only you would believe!
56:58 Have you seen what you ejaculate?
56:59 Is it you who create it, or are We the Creator?
56:60 We have decreed death among you, and We will not be outstripped.
56:61 In replacing you with your likes, and transforming you into what you do not know.
56:62 You have known the first formation; if only you would remember.
56:63 Have you seen what you cultivate?
56:64 Is it you who make it grow, or are We the Grower?
56:65 If We will, We can turn it into rubble; then you will lament.
56:66 'We are penalized.
56:67 No, we are being deprived.'
56:68 Have you seen the water you drink?
56:69 Is it you who sent it down from the clouds, or are We the Sender?
56:70 If We will, We can make it salty. Will you not be thankful?
56:71 Have you seen the fire you kindle?
56:72 Is it you who produce its tree, or are We the Producer?
56:73 We have made it a reminder, and a comfort for the users.
56:74 So glorify the Name of your Great Lord.
56:75 I swear by the locations of the stars.
56:76 It is an oath, if you only knew, that is tremendous.
56:77 It is a noble Quran.
56:78 In a well-protected Book.
56:79 None can grasp it except the purified.
56:80 A revelation from the Lord of the Worlds.
56:81 Is it this discourse that you take so lightly?
56:82 And you make it your livelihood to deny it?
56:83 So when it has reached the throat.
56:84 As you are looking on.
56:85 We are nearer to it than you are, but you do not see.
56:86 If you are not held to account.
56:87 Then bring it back, if you are truthful.
56:88 But if he is one of those brought near.
56:89 Then happiness, and flowers, and Garden of Delights.
56:90 And if he is one of those on the Right.
56:91 Then, 'Peace upon you,' from those on the Right.
56:92 But if he is one of the deniers, the mistaken.
56:93 Then a welcome of Inferno.
56:94 And burning in Hell.
56:95 This is the certain truth.
56:96 So glorify the Name of your Lord, the Magnificent
