In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
56:1 When the Event comes to pass —
56:2 There is no belying its coming to pass —
56:3 Abasing (some), exalting (others) —
56:4 When the earth is shaken with a (severe) shaking,
56:5 And the mountains are crumbled to pieces,
56:6 So they are as scattered dust,
56:7 And you are three sorts.
56:8 So those on the right-hand; how (happy) are those on the right-hand!
56:9 And those on the left; how (wretched) are those on the left!
56:10 And the foremost are the foremost—
56:11 These are drawn nigh (to Allah).
56:12 In Gardens of bliss.
56:13 A multitude from among the first,
56:14 And a few from among those of later times,
56:15 On thrones inwrought,
56:16 Reclining on them, facing each other.
56:17 Round about them will go youths never altering in age,
56:18 With goblets and ewers, and a cup of pure drink —
56:19 They are not affected with headache thereby, nor are they intoxicated,
56:20 And fruits that they choose,
56:21 And flesh of fowl that they desire,
56:22 And pure, beautiful ones,
56:23 Like hidden pearls.
56:24 A reward for what they did.
56:25 They hear therein no vain or sinful talk —
56:26 But only the saying, Peace! Peace!
56:27 And those on the right hand; how (happy) are those on the right hand!
56:28 Amid thornless lote-trees,
56:29 And clustered banana-trees,
56:30 And extensive shade,
56:31 And water gushing,
56:32 And abundant fruit,
56:33 Neither intercepted, nor forbidden,
56:34 And exalted couches.
56:35 Surely We have created them a (new) creation,
56:36 So We have made them virgins,
56:37 Loving, equals in age,
56:38 For those on the right hand.
56:39 A multitude from among the first,
56:40 And a multitude from among those of later times.
56:41 And those on the left hand; how (wretched) are those on the left hand!
56:42 In hot wind and boiling water,
56:43 And shadow of black smoke,
56:44 Neither cool nor refreshing.
56:45 Surely they lived before that in ease.
56:46 And they persisted in the great violation.
56:47 And they used to say: When we die and become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be raised?
56:48 Or our fathers of yore?
56:49 Say: The ancients and those of later times
56:50 Will surely be gathered together for the appointed hour of a known day.
56:51 Then shall you, O you who err and deny,
56:52 Eat of the tree of Zaqqum,
56:53 And fill (your) bellies with it;
56:54 Then drink after 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 accept?
56:58 See you that which you emit?
56:59 Is it you that create it or are We the Creator?
56:60 We have ordained death among you and We are not to be overcome,
56:61 That We may change your state 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 See you what you sow?
56:64 Is it you that cause it to grow, or are We the Causer of growth?
56:65 If We pleased, We would make it chaff, then would you lament:
56:66 Surely we are burdened with debt:
56:67 Nay, we are deprived.
56:68 See you the water which you drink?
56:69 Do you bring it down from the clouds, or are We the Bringer?
56:70 If We pleased, We could make it saltish; why give you not thanks?
56:71 See you the fire which you kindle?
56:72 Is it you that produce the trees for it, or are We the Producer?
56:73 We have made it a reminder and an advantage for the wayfarers of the desert.
56:74 So glorify the name of thy Lord, the Incomparably Great.
56:75 But nay, I swear by revelation of portions (of the Quran)!—
56:76 And it is a great oath indeed, if you knew —
56:77 Surely it is a bounteous Quran,
56:78 In a book that is protected,
56:79 Which none touches save the purified ones.
56:80 A revelation from the Lord of the worlds.
56:81 Is it this announcement that you disdain?
56:82 And make your denial your means of subsistence.
56:83 Why is it not then that when it 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 see not —
56:86 Why then, if you are not held under authority,
56:87 Do you not send it 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 thee from those on the right hand.
56:92 And if he is one of the rejectors, the erring ones,
56:93 He has an entertainment of boiling water,
56:94 And burning in hell.
56:95 Surely this is a certain truth.
56:96 So glorify the name of thy Lord, the Incomparably Great.
