56. The Event (Al-Waqi'ah)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficient, the Merciful.

1 <section begin="56:1"/>When the Event comes to pass -- <section end="56:1"/>

2 <section begin="56:2"/>There is no belying its coming to pass-3 Abasing (some), exalting (others) -- <section end="56:2"/>

4 <section begin="56:4"/>When the earth is shaken with a (severe) shaking, <section end="56:4"/>

5 <section begin="56:5"/>And the mountains are crumbled to pieces, <section end="56:5"/>

6 <section begin="56:6"/>So they are as scattered dust, <section end="56:6"/>

7 <section begin="56:7"/>And you are three sorts. <section end="56:7"/>

8 <section begin="56:8"/>So those on the right-hand how (happy) are those on the right-hand! <section end="56:8"/>

9 <section begin="56:9"/>And those on the left; how (wretched) are those on the left! <section end="56:9"/>

10 <section begin="56:10"/>And the foremost are the foremost -- <section end="56:10"/>

11 <section begin="56:11"/>These are drawn nigh (to Allah). <section end="56:11"/>

12 <section begin="56:12"/>In Gardens of bliss <section end="56:12"/>

13 <section begin="56:13"/>A multitude from among the first, <section end="56:13"/>

14 <section begin="56:14"/>And a few from among those of later times, <section end="56:14"/>

15 <section begin="56:15"/>On thrones inwrought, <section end="56:15"/>

16 <section begin="56:16"/>Reclining on them, facing each other. <section end="56:16"/>

17 <section begin="56:17"/>Round about them will go youths never altering in age, <section end="56:17"/>

18 <section begin="56:18"/>With goblets and ewers, and a cup of pure drink -- <section end="56:18"/>

19 <section begin="56:19"/>They are not affected with headache thereby, nor are they intoxicated, <section end="56:19"/>

20 <section begin="56:20"/>And fruits that they choose, <section end="56:20"/>

21 <section begin="56:21"/>And flesh of fowl that they desire, <section end="56:21"/>

22 <section begin="56:22"/>And pure, beautiful ones, <section end="56:22"/>

23 <section begin="56:23"/>Like to hidden pearls. <section end="56:23"/>

24 <section begin="56:24"/>A reward for what they did. <section end="56:24"/>

25 <section begin="56:25"/>They hear therein no vain or sinful talk -- <section end="56:25"/>

26 <section begin="56:26"/>But only the saying, Peace! Peace! <section end="56:26"/>

27 <section begin="56:27"/>And those on the right hand; how (happy) are those on the right hand! <section end="56:27"/>

28 <section begin="56:28"/>Amid thornless lote-trees, <section end="56:28"/>

29 <section begin="56:29"/>And clustered banana-trees, <section end="56:29"/>

30 <section begin="56:30"/>And extensive shade, <section end="56:30"/>

31 <section begin="56:31"/>And water gushing, <section end="56:31"/>

32 <section begin="56:32"/>And abundant fruit. <section end="56:32"/>

33 <section begin="56:33"/>Neither intercepted, nor forbidden, <section end="56:33"/>

34 <section begin="56:34"/>And exalted couches. <section end="56:34"/>

35 <section begin="56:35"/>Surely We have created them a (new) creation, <section end="56:35"/>

36 <section begin="56:36"/>So We have made them virgins, <section end="56:36"/>

37 <section begin="56:37"/>Loving, equals in age, <section end="56:37"/>

38 <section begin="56:38"/>For those on the right hand. <section end="56:38"/>

39 <section begin="56:39"/>A multitude from among the first, <section end="56:39"/>

40 <section begin="56:40"/>And a multitude from among those of later times. <section end="56:40"/>

41 <section

begin="56:41"/>And those on the left hand; how (wretched) are those on the left hand! <section end="56:41"/>

42 <section begin="56:42"/>In hot wind and boiling water, <section end="56:42"/>

43 <section begin="56:43"/>And shadow of black smoke, <section end="56:43"/>

44 <section begin="56:44"/>Neither cool nor refreshing. <section end="56:44"/>

45 <section begin="56:45"/>Surely they lived before that in ease. <section end="56:45"/>

46 <section begin="56:46"/>And they persisted in the great violation. <section end="56:46"/>

47 <section begin="56:47"/>And they used to say: When we die and become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be raised? <section end="56:47"/>

48 <section begin="56:48"/>Or our fathers of yore? <section end="56:48"/>

49 <section begin="56:49"/>Say: The ancients and those of later times <section end="56:49"/>

50 <section begin="56:50"/>Will surely be gathered together for the appointed hour of a known day. <section end="56:50"/>

51 <section begin="56:51"/>Then shall you, O you who err and deny, <section end="56:51"/>

52 <section begin="56:52"/>Eat of the tree of Zaqqum, <section end="56:52"/>

53 <section begin="56:53"/>And fill (your) bellies with it <section end="56:53"/>

54 <section begin="56:54"/>Then drink after it of boiling water; <section end="56:54"/>

55 <section begin="56:55"/>And drink as drinks the thirsty camel. <section end="56:55"/>

56 <section begin="56:56"/>This is their entertainment on the day of Requital. <section end="56:56"/>

57 <section begin="56:57"/>We have created you, why do you not then accept? <section end="56:57"/>

58 <section begin="56:58"/>See you that which you emit? <section end="56:58"/>

59 <section begin="56:59"/>Is it you that create it or are We the Creators? <section end="56:59"/>

60 <section begin="56:60"/>We have ordained death among you and We are not to be overcome, <section end="56:60"/>

61 <section begin="56:61"/>That We may change your state and make you grow into what you know not. <section end="56:61"/>

62 <section begin="56:62"/>And certainly you know the first growth, why do you not then mind? <section end="56:62"/>

63 <section begin="56:63"/>See you what you sow? <section end="56:63"/>

64 <section begin="56:64"/>Is it you that cause it to grow, or arc We the Causer of growth. <section end="56:64"/>

65 <section begin="56:65"/>If We pleased, We would make it chaff, then would you lament: <section end="56:65"/>

66 <section begin="56:66"/>Surely we are burdened with debt: <section end="56:66"/>

67 <section begin="56:67"/>Nay, we are deprived. <section end="56:67"/>

68 <section begin="56:68"/>See you the water which you drink? <section end="56:68"/>

69 <section begin="56:69"/>Do you bring it down from the clouds, or are We the Bringer? <section end="56:69"/>

70 <section begin="56:70"/>If We pleased, We could make it saltish; why give you not thanks? <section end="56:70"/>

71 <section begin="56:71"/>See you the fire which you kindle? <section end="56:71"/>

72 <section begin="56:72"/>Is it you that produce the trees for it, or are We the Producer? <section end="56:72"/>

73 <section begin="56:73"/>We have made it a reminder and an advantage for the wayfarers of the desert. <section end="56:73"/>

74 <section begin="56:74"/>So glorify the name of thy Lord, the Incomparably Great. <section end="56:74"/>

75 <section

begin="56:75"/>But nay, I swear by revelation of portions (of the Qur'an) <section end="56:75"/>

76 <section begin="56:76"/>And it is a great oath indeed, if you knew -- <section end="56:76"/>

77 <section begin="56:77"/>Surely it is a bounteous Qur'an, <section end="56:77"/>

78 <section begin="56:78"/>In a book that is protected, <section end="56:78"/>

79 <section begin="56:79"/>Which none touches save the purified ones. <section end="56:79"/>

80 <section begin="56:80"/>A revelation from the Lord of the worlds. <section end="56:80"/>

81 <section begin="56:81"/>Is it this announcement that you disdain? <section end="56:81"/>

82 <section begin="56:82"/>And make your denial your means of subsistence. -- <section end="56:82"/>

83 <section begin="56:83"/>Why is it nor then that when it comes up to the throat, <section end="56:83"/>

84 <section begin="56:84"/>And you at that time look on -- <section end="56:84"/>

85 <section begin="56:85"/>And We are nearer to it than you, but you see not -- <section end="56:85"/>

86 <section begin="56:86"/>Why then, if you are not held under authority, <section end="56:86"/>

87 <section begin="56:87"/>Do you not send it back, if you are truthful? <section end="56:87"/>

88 <section begin="56:88"/>Then if he is one of those drawn nigh (to Allah), <section end="56:88"/>

89 <section begin="56:89"/>Then happiness and bounty and a Garden of bliss. <section end="56:89"/>

90 <section begin="56:90"/>And if he is one of those on the right hand, <section end="56:90"/>

91 <section begin="56:91"/>Then peace to thee from those on the right hand. <section end="56:91"/>

92 <section begin="56:92"/>And if he is one of the rejectors, the erring ones, <section end="56:92"/>

93 <section begin="56:93"/>He has an entertainment of boiling water, <section end="56:93"/>

94 <section begin="56:94"/>And burning in hell. <section end="56:94"/>

95 <section begin="56:95"/>Surely this is a certain truth. <section end="56:95"/>

96 <section begin="56:96"/>So glorify the name of thy Lord. the Incomparably Great. <section end="56:96"/>
