[56.1] When the Event inevitable cometh to pass,
[56.2] Then will no (soul) entertain falsehood concerning its coming.
[56.3] (Many) will it bring low; (many) will it exalt;
[56.4] When the earth shall be shaken to its depths,
[56.5] And the mountains shall be crumbled to atoms,
[56.6] Becoming dust scattered abroad,
[56.7] And ye shall be sorted out into three classes.
[56.8] Then (there will be) the Companions of the Right Hand;- What will be the Companions of the Right Hand?
[56.9] And the Companions of the Left Hand,- what will be the Companions of the Left Hand?
[56.10] And those Foremost (in Faith) will be Foremost (in the Hereafter).
[56.11] These will be those Nearest to Allah:
[56.12] In Gardens of Bliss:
[56.13] A number of people from those of old,
[56.14] And a few from those of later times.
[56.15] (They will be) on Thrones encrusted (with gold and precious stones),
[56.16] Reclining on them, facing each other.
[56.17] Round about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness),
[56.18] With goblets, (shining) beakers, and cups (filled) out of clear-flowing fountains:
[56.19] No after-ache will they receive therefrom, nor will they suffer intoxication:
[56.20] And with fruits, any that they may select:
[56.21] And the flesh of fowls, any that they may desire.
[56.22] And (there will be) Companions with beautiful, big, and lustrous eyes,-
[56.23] Like unto Pearls well-guarded.
[56.24] A Reward for the deeds of their past (life).
[56.25] Not frivolity will they hear therein, nor any taint of ill,-
[56.26] Only the saying, "Peace! Peace".
[56.27] The Companions of the Right Hand,- what will be the Companions of the Right Hand?
[56.28] (They will be) among Lote-trees without thorns,
[56.29] Among Talh trees with flowers (or fruits) piled one above another,-
[56.30] In shade long-extended,
[56.31] By water flowing constantly,
[56.32] And fruit in abundance.
[56.33] Whose season is not limited, nor (supply) forbidden,
[56.34] And on Thrones (of Dignity), raised high.
[56.35] We have created (their Companions) of special creation.
[56.36] And made them virgin - pure (and undefiled), -
[56.37] Beloved (by nature), equal in age,-
[56.38] For the Companions of the Right Hand.
[56.39] A (goodly) number from those of old,
[56.40] And a (goodly) number from those of later times.
[56.41] The Companions of the Left Hand,- what will be the Companions of the Left Hand?
[56.42] (They will be) in the midst of a Fierce Blast of Fire and in Boiling Water,
[56.43] And in the shades of Black Smoke:
[56.44] Nothing (will there be) to refresh, nor to please:
[56.45] For that they were wont to be indulged, before that, in wealth (and luxury),
[56.46] And persisted obstinately in wickedness supreme!
[56.47] And they used to say, "What! when we die and become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be raised up again?-
[56.48] "(We) and our fathers of old?"
[56.49] Say: "Yea, those of old and those of later times,
[56.50] "All will certainly be gathered together for the meeting appointed for a Day well-known.
[56.51] "Then will ye truly,- O ye that go wrong, and treat (Truth) as Falsehood!-
[56.52] "Ye will surely taste of the Tree of Zaqqum.
[56.53] "Then will ye fill your insides therewith,
[56.54] "And drink Boiling Water on top of it:
[56.55] "Indeed ye shall drink like diseased camels raging with thirst!"
[56.56] Such will be their entertainment on the Day of Requital!
[56.57] It is We Who have created you: why will ye not witness the Truth?
[56.58] Do ye then see?- The (human Seed) that ye throw out,-
[56.59] Is it ye who create it, or are We the Creators?
[56.60] We have decreed Death to be your common lot, and We are not to be frustrated
[56.61] from changing your Forms and creating you (again) in (forms) that ye know not.
[56.62] And ye certainly know already the first form of creation: why then do ye not celebrate His praises?
[56.63] See ye the seed that ye sow in the ground?
[56.64] Is it ye that cause it to grow, or are We the Cause?
[56.65] Were it Our Will, We could crumble it to dry powder, and ye would be left in wonderment,
[56.66] (Saying), "We are indeed left with debts (for nothing):
[56.67] "Indeed are we shut out (of the fruits of our labour)"
[56.68] See ye the water which ye drink?
[56.69] Do ye bring it down (in rain) from the cloud or do We?
[56.70] Were it Our Will, We could make it salt (and unpalatable): then why do ye not give thanks?
[56.71] See ye the Fire which ye kindle?
[56.72] Is it ye who grow the tree which feeds the fire, or do We grow it?
[56.73] We have made it a memorial (of Our handiwork), and an article of comfort and convenience for the denizens of deserts.
[56.74] Then celebrate with praises the name of thy Lord, the Supreme!
[56.75] Furthermore I call to witness the setting of the Stars,-
[56.76] And that is indeed a mighty adjuration if ye but knew,-
[56.77] That this is indeed a qur'an Most Honourable,
[56.78] In Book well-guarded,
[56.79] Which none shall touch but those who are clean:
[56.80] A Revelation from the Lord of the Worlds.
[56.81] Is it such a Message that ye would hold in light esteem?
[56.82] And have ye made it your livelihood that ye should declare it false?
[56.83] Then why do ye not (intervene) when (the soul of the dying man) reaches the throat,-
[56.84] And ye the while (sit) looking on,-
[56.85] But We are nearer to him than ye, and yet see not,-
[56.86] Then why do ye not,- If you are exempt from (future) account,-
[56.87] Call back the soul, if ye are true (in the claim of independence)?
[56.88] Thus, then, if he be of those Nearest to Allah,
[56.89] (There is for him) Rest and Satisfaction, and a Garden of Delights.
[56.90] And if he be of the Companions of the Right Hand,
[56.91] (For him is the salutation), "Peace be unto thee", from the Companions of the Right Hand.
[56.92] And if he be of those who treat (Truth) as Falsehood, who go wrong,
[56.93] For him is Entertainment with Boiling Water.
[56.94] And burning in Hell-Fire.
[56.95] Verily, this is the Very Truth and Certainly.
[56.96] So celebrate with praises the name of thy Lord, the Supreme.
