[56.1] When the Event (the resurrection) comes
[56.2] there is no denying its coming
[56.3] (it will) abase (some) and exalt (others).
[56.4] When the earth is shaken
[56.5] and the mountains fragmented
[56.6] becoming scattered dust,
[56.7] you shall be divided into three parties,
[56.8] Companions of the Right, what are the Companions of the Right?
[56.9] Companions of the Left, what are the Companions of the Left?
[56.10] And the Outstrippers, the Outstrippers
[56.11] those are they brought near (to their Lord)
[56.12] in the Gardens of Delight,
[56.13] a host of the ancients
[56.14] but only a few from the later generations.
[56.15] on lavish couches
[56.16] they shall recline, facing each other,
[56.17] (and there) shall wait on them immortal youths
[56.18] with goblets and ewers, and a cup from a spring
[56.19] that will neither make the head throb, nor intoxicate,
[56.20] with fruits of their own choice
[56.21] and any flesh of fowl that they desire.
[56.22] And wide-eyed houris
[56.23] like hidden pearls,
[56.24] a recompense for all that they did.
[56.25] There they shall hear no idle talk, no cause of sin,
[56.26] but only the saying: 'Peace, Peace!'
[56.27] The Companions of the Right
[56.28] (will be) among thornless Lote trees.
[56.29] Banana-trees, piled
[56.30] and continuous shade,
[56.31] and flowing water
[56.32] and an abundance of fruits,
[56.33] unfailing and not forbidden.
[56.34] And couches raised up.
[56.35] Indeed We formed them (the houris and all believing women),
[56.36] and made them virgins,
[56.37] chaste, loving companions of the same age
[56.38] for the Companions of the Right -
[56.39] a multitude of the ancients,
[56.40] and a multitude of the later people.
[56.41] As for the Companions of the Left
[56.42] (they shall live) amid burning winds and boiling water,
[56.43] in the shadow of a smoking blaze,
[56.44] neither cool nor good.
[56.45] Before they lived at ease,
[56.46] and persisted in the great sin
[56.47] and constantly said: 'What, when we are dead and become dust and bones, shall we then be restored to life?
[56.48] What, and our fathers, the ancients?'
[56.49] Say: 'Those of ancient times and those of later times
[56.50] shall be gathered together to the appointed time on a known Day.'
[56.51] Then you went astray, you that belied,
[56.52] you shall eat (the fruit) of the Tree of Zakkum.
[56.53] You shall fill your bellies with it,
[56.54] and drink boiling water on top of that,
[56.55] and you will drink as the lapping of thirsty camels.
[56.56] Such shall be your hospitality on the Day of Recompense.
[56.57] We created you, why will you not believe!
[56.58] Have you thought about what (sperm) you ejaculate?
[56.59] Did you create it, or are We the Creator?
[56.60] It was We who decreed death among you. We will not be surpassed
[56.61] that We will change you and cause you to grow again in a way you do not know.
[56.62] You have surely known of the first creation. Why then, will you not remember!
[56.63] Ponder upon the soil you till,
[56.64] is it you that sow it, or are We the Sower?
[56.65] If We will, We would make it broken stubble and you would remain wondering,
[56.66] (Saying:) 'We are laden with debts!
[56.67] Rather, we have been prevented!'
[56.68] Have you thought about the water you drink?
[56.69] Is it you that send it down from the clouds or We?
[56.70] If We will, We would make it bitter, why then do you not give thanks?
[56.71] Have you thought about the fire you kindle?
[56.72] Is it you that originated its tree, or are We the Originator?
[56.73] We have made it a reminder, and a blessing to the traveler.
[56.74] Then, exalt the Name of your Lord, the Great.
[56.75] I swear by the fallings of the stars -
[56.76] and that is a mighty oath, if you but knew -
[56.77] it is indeed a Glorious Koran,
[56.78] in a Book protected (from tampering)
[56.79] which none shall touch except the purified;
[56.80] a sending down from the Lord of all the Worlds.
[56.81] What, do you hold this discourse in disdain,
[56.82] do you make it your provision to belie it?
[56.83] Why, then, when the soul leaps up to the throat of the dying
[56.84] and you are watching at that time
[56.85] We are nearer to him than you, but you do not see
[56.86] why then, if you are not revived,
[56.87] do you not restore his soul, if you are truthful?
[56.88] If he is among the near
[56.89] there shall be calmness and ease, a Garden of Delight.
[56.90] If he is a Companion of the Right
[56.91] (he will be greeted with): 'Peace be upon you, Companion of the Right!'
[56.92] But, if he is of those who belied, and went astray,
[56.93] there shall be a hospitality of boiling water,
[56.94] and a roasting in Hell.
[56.95] Indeed, this is the certain truth.
[56.96] So exalt the Name of your Lord, the Great.
