56 - The Great Event


In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

1When the Event Inevitable cometh to pass,
2Then will no (soul) deny its coming.
3(Many) will it bring low; (many) will it exalt;
4When the earth shall be shaken to its depths,
5And the mountains shall be crumbled to atoms,
6Becoming dust scattered abroad,
7And ye shall be sorted out into three classes.
8Then (there will be) the Companions of the Right Hand;- What will be the Companions of the Right Hand?
9And the Companions of the Left Hand,- what will be the Companions of the Left Hand?
10And those Foremost (in Faith) will be Foremost (in the Hereafter).
11These will be those Nearest to Allah.
12In Gardens of Bliss:
13A number of people from those of old,
14And a few from those of later times.
15(They will be) on couches encrusted (with gold and precious stones),
16Reclining on them, facing each other.
17Round about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness),
18With goblets, (shining) beakers, and cups (filled) out of clear-flowing fountains:
19No after-ache will they receive therefrom, nor will they suffer intoxication:
20And with fruits, any that they may select:
21And the flesh of fowls, any that they may desire.
22And (there will be) Companions with beautiful, big, and lustrous eyes,-
23Like unto Pearls well-guarded.
24A Reward for the deeds of their past (life).
25Not frivolity will they hear therein, nor any mischief,-
26Only the saying, "Peace! Peace".
27The Companions of the Right Hand,- What will be the Companions of the Right Hand?
28(They will be) among Lote-trees without thorns,
29Among Talh trees with flowers (or fruits) piled one above another,-
30In shade long-extended,
31By water flowing constantly,
32And fruit in abundance.
33Whose season is not limited, nor (supply) forbidden,
34And on couches raised high.
35We have created them of special creation.
36And made them virgin - pure (and undefiled), -
37Full of love (for their mates), equal in age,-
38For the Companions of the Right Hand.
39A (goodly) number from those of old,
40And a (goodly) number from those of later times.
41The Companions of the Left Hand,- What will be the Companions of the Left Hand?
42(They will be) in the midst of a Fierce Blast of Fire and in Boiling Water,
43And in the shades of Black Smoke:
44Neither cool nor refreshing:
45For that they were wont to be indulged, before that, in sinful luxury,
46And persisted obstinately in wickedness supreme!
47And they used to say, "What! when we die and become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be raised up again?-
48"(We) and our fathers of old?"
49Say: "Yea, those of old and those of later times,
50"All will certainly be gathered together for the meeting appointed for a Day well-known.
51"Then will ye truly,- O ye that go wrong, and treat (Truth) as Falsehood!-
52"Ye will surely taste of the Tree of Zaqqüm.
53"Then will ye fill your insides therewith,
54"And drink Boiling Water on top of it:
55"Indeed ye shall drink like diseased camels raging with thirst!"
56Such will be their entertainment on the Day of Requital!
57It is We Who have created you: why will ye not witness the Truth?
58Do ye then see?- The (human Seed) that ye emit,-
59Is it ye who create it, or are We the Creators?
60We have decreed Death to be your common lot, and We are not to be frustrated
61From changing your Forms and creating you (again) in (forms) that ye know not.
62And ye certainly know already the first form of creation: why then do ye not take heed?
63See ye the seed that ye sow in the ground?
64Is it ye that cause it to grow, or are We the Cause?
65Were it Our Will, We could make it broken orts, and ye would be left in wonderment,
66(Saying), "We are indeed left with debts (for nothing):
67"Indeed we are deprived"
68See ye the water which ye drink?
69Do ye bring it down (in rain) from the cloud or do We?
70Were it Our Will, We could make it saltish (and unpalatable): then why do ye not give thanks?
71See ye the Fire which ye kindle?
72Is it ye who grow the tree which feeds the fire, or do We grow it?
73We have made it a reminder and an article of comfort and convenience for the denizens of deserts.
74Then glorify the name of thy Lord, the Supreme!
75Furthermore I swear by the setting of the Stars,-
76And that is indeed a mighty adjuration if ye but knew,-
77That this is indeed a Quran most honorable,
78In Book well-guarded,
79Which none shall touch but those who are clean:
80A Revelation from the Lord of the Worlds.
81Is it such a Message that ye would hold in light esteem?
82And have ye made it your livelihood that ye should declare it false?
83Then why do ye not (intervene) when (the soul of the dying man) reaches the throat,-
84And ye the while (sit) looking on,-
85But We are nearer to him than ye, and yet see not,-
86Then why do ye not,- if you are exempt from (future) account,-
87Call back the soul, if ye are true (in the claim of independence)?
88Thus, then, if he be of those Nearest to Allah,
89(There is for him) Rest and Satisfaction, and a Garden of Delights.
90And if he be of the Companions of the R 2c7 ight Hand,
91(For him is the salutation), "Peace be unto thee", from the Companions of the Right Hand.
92And if he be of those who deny (the truth), who go wrong,
93For him is Entertainment with Boiling Water.
94And burning in Hell-Fire.
95Verily, this is the Very Truth of assured certainty.
96So glorify the name of thy Lord, the Supreme.
