When the Inevitable Event happens,
no one will be a denier.
Some will be humiliated, others honoured.
When the Earth trembles violently,
the mountains will crumble
and become scattered dust.
That Day you will be sorted out into three lots:
will be people of the right hand; how wonderful will be those of the right hand!
will be people of the left hand; how wretched will be those of the left hand!
will be in the first rank, the foremost;
They will enjoy the delights of Paradise.
Many from the earlier generations,
but a few from the later generations
Resting on couches decked with jewels,
they will enjoy each other’s company
face to face.
Served by young people of timeless youth
carrying glasses and jugs full of the purest wine,
which doesn’t give headache nor drunkenness,
they will choose to eat
fruit of all kinds
and relish roasted bird’s meat.
Their spouses will be beautiful,
like hidden pearls.
A reward for what they used to do.
They will hear neither idle talk, nor sinful conversation,
only the greetings of peace
And the people of the right hand, how wonderful are the people
of the right hand,
living among thornless cedar trees,
bunches of bananas,
widely-spread cool shade,
never ending, never out of reach.
They will have the most beautiful partners
created for them,
passionately loving and young –
especially for the people of the right-hand.
Many from the earlier generations,
and many from later generations
The people of the left hand, how wretched will be those of the left hand.
They will be
living in surroundings of
scorching winds and boiling water
in the shadow of dark smoke,
neither cool nor comforting.
In the past life they lived in luxury,
and kept committing the
grave sin of idolatry
And said, “What, when we are dead and turned to dust and bones, will we be resurrected?
And our forefathers too?”
Tell them: “Those of the past and the later generations
will be gathered together at a fixed time on a known Day.
Then, you the misled and the deniers,
you will be forced to eat fruit
filling your bellies with it,
forced to drink boiling water,
you’ll drink it like thirsty camels.”
This is their hospitality, on Judgement Day
We created you, why don’t you accept this?
Haven’t you considered the semen you emit?
Did you create it yourselves, or are We its Creator?
We decreed, death will surround you, and nothing can stop Us
from changing you and recreating you anew, something you don’t know.
Since you know well your first creation in the mother’s womb
, why don’t you pay attention?
Haven’t you considered what you sow?
Do you make it grow, or are We its growers?
If We wanted, We could have turned it into a stubble after harvest
, and you would be left to wonder:
“Why are we debtors!
No, in fact we have been robbed.”
Haven’t you considered the water that you drink?
Do you send the rain from clouds or are We the senders?
If We wanted we could make it bitter, so why don’t you thank Allah
Have you considered the fire you light?
Did you make the wood or are We its makers?
We made fire a reminder of Hell and a beneficial thing for the traveller.
So glorify the Name of your Mighty Lord
I swear by the positions of the stars,
if only you knew, this is indeed a mighty oath.
Indeed this is a Majestic Quran,
in a hidden Book;
only the clean ones can touch it.
A Revelation from the Lord of the worlds.
So how can you disrespect Scripture like this?
And from its blessings
all you could receive is denying it?
Why, then, when a dying person’s
last breath comes to the throat, you can’t return it?
You watch helplessly
Though We are closer to him than you, though you can’t see.
Why do you think that you are not dependent on Us?
If you are truthful, why can’t you cause that ebbing life to return
So the dying person if they were
from the closest to Allah,
they shall be comfortable in fragrant and blissful Paradise.
And if they are from the people of the right hand,
they shall be greeted with: “Peace be with you from people of the right hand.”
But if they happen to be one of the deniers, misguided,
their welcome will be boiling water,
a blazing fire of Hell!
This is the convincing truth,
; glorify the Name of Your Mighty Lord
