The Study Quran rendition of Surah The Event, The Inevitable, That Which is Coming(al-Waqi`ah)
56:1 When the Event befalls,
56:2 none shall deny its befalling,
56:3 abasing, exalting.
56:4 When the earth is shaken violently,
56:5 and the mountains are pulverized to powder,
56:6 such that they become scattered dust,
56:7 and you shall be of three kinds:
56:8 the companions of the right; what of the companions of the right?
56:9 And the companions of the left; what of the companions of the left?
56:10 And the foremost shall be the foremost.
56:11 They are the ones brought nigh,
56:12 in Gardens of bliss—
56:13 many from those of old,
56:14 and few from those of later times—
56:15 upon embroidered couches,
56:16 reclining upon them, facing one another.
56:17 Immortal youths wait upon them
56:18 with goblets, ewers, and a cup from a flowing spring,
56:19 wherefrom they suffer neither headache nor stupefaction,
56:20 with fruits as they choose,
56:21 and the meat of birds as they desire,
56:22 and [there shall be] wide-eyed maidens,
56:23 the likeness of concealed pearls,
56:24 as a recompense for that which they used to do.
56:25 They hear no idle talk therein, nor incitement to sin,
56:26 save that “Peace! Peace!” is uttered.
56:27 And the companions of the right; what of the companions of the right?
56:28 Among thornless lote trees,
56:29 clustered plantains,
56:30 and extended shade,
56:31 gushing water,
56:32 and abundant fruit,
56:33 neither out of reach, nor forbidden,
56:34 and [upon] raised beds.
56:35 Truly We brought them into being as a [new] creation,
56:36 then made for them virgins,
56:37 amorous peers,
56:38 for the companions of the right—
56:39 many from those of old,
56:40 and many from those of later times.
56:41 And the companions of the left; what of the companions of the left?
56:42 Amidst scorching wind and boiling liquid,
56:43 and the shadow of black smoke,
56:44 neither cool nor refreshing.
56:45 Truly before that they lived in luxury,
56:46 would persist in great sin,
56:47 and would say, “What! When we are dead and have become dust and bones, are we to be resurrected?
56:48 What! And our fathers of old?”
56:49 Say, “Truly those of old and those of later times
56:50 are gathered for the tryst of a day appointed.”
56:51 Then indeed you—O you straying deniers—
56:52 shall eat from a tree of Zaqqum,
56:53 and fill your bellies therewith.
56:54 Then you shall drink from boiling liquid,
56:55 drinking as do parched camels.
56:56 This shall be their welcome on the Day of Judgment.
56:57 We created you. Would that you affirm it.
56:58 Have you considered that which you emit?
56:59 Is it you who created it or are We the creators?
56:60 We have decreed death among you, and none outstrips Us
56:61 in replacing [you with] your likenesses and bringing you into being again in what you know not.
56:62 You have indeed known the first genesis. Why, then, do you not reflect?
56:63 Have you considered what you reap?
56:64 Is it you who sow it or are We the sowers?
56:65 Had We willed, We would have turned it to chaff, such that you would remain bitterly jesting,
56:66 [saying] “Truly we have suffered loss.
56:67 Nay! We are deprived.”
56:68 Have you considered the water that you drink?
56:69 Is it you who sent it down from the clouds, or is it We Who send down?
56:70 If We had willed, We would have made it bitter; will you not, then, give thanks?
56:71 Have you considered the fire that you kindle?
56:72 Is it you who brought into being the tree thereof, or is it We Who bring into being?
56:73 We made it a reminder and an enjoyment for the desert dwellers.
56:74 So glorify the Name of thy Lord, the Magnificent!
56:75 I swear by the places where the stars descend!
56:76 And truly it is a magnificent oath, if you but knew.
56:77 Truly it is a Noble Quran
56:78 in a Book concealed.
56:79 None touch it, save those made pure,
56:80 a revelation from the Lord of the worlds.
56:81 Do you then scorn this discourse,
56:82 and make the denial thereof your provision?
56:83 Why, then, when it reaches the throat,
56:84 while you are looking on
56:85 —and We are nearer to him than you, though you see not—
56:86 why, then, if you are unconstrained,
56:87 do you not return it, if you are truthful?
56:88 So if one be among those brought nigh,
56:89 then comfort, bounty, and a Garden of bliss.
56:90 And if one be among the companions of the right,
56:91 then peace unto thee from the companions of the right.
56:92 But if one be among the deniers who are astray,
56:93 then a welcome of boiling liquid,
56:94 and burning in Hellfire.
56:95 Verily, this is the truth of certainty;
56:96 so glorify the Name of thy Lord, the Magnificent!
