Qur'an

 Revealed 46th  

56:1
When the Occurrence occurs,

56:2
There is, at its occurrence, no denial.

56:3
It will bring down [some] and raise up [others].

56:4
When the earth is shaken with convulsion [*~2 Ezra 9:3*~Matthew 24:7*~Mark 13:8*Revelation 6:12]

56:5
And the mountains are broken down, crumbling

56:6
And become dust dispersing.

56:7
And you become [of] three kinds

56:8
Then the companions of the right - what are the companions of the right?

56:9
And the companions of the left - what are the companions of the left?  [*Matthew 25:32 - 33]

56:10
And the forerunners, the forerunners -

56:11
Those are the ones brought near [to God]

56:12
In the Gardens of Pleasure,

56:13
A company of the former peoples

56:14
And a few of the later peoples,

56:15
On thrones woven [with ornament],

56:16
Reclining on them, facing each other.

56:17
There will circulate among them young boys made eternal

56:18
With vessels, pitchers and a cup [of wine] from a flowing spring -

56:19
No headache will they have therefrom, nor will they be intoxicated -

56:20
And fruit of what they select

56:21
And the meat of fowl, from whatever they desire.

56:22
And [for them are] fair women with large, [beautiful] eyes,

56:23
The likenesses of pearls well-protected,

56:24
As reward for what they used to do.

56:25
They will not hear therein ill speech or commission of sin -

56:26
Only a saying "Peace, peace."

56:27
The companions of the right - what are the companions of the right?  [*Matthew 25:34]

56:28
[They will be] among lote trees with thorns removed

56:29
And [banana] trees layered [with fruit]

56:30
And shade extended

56:31
And water poured out

56:32
And fruit, abundant [and varied],

56:33
Neither limited [to season] nor forbidden,

56:34
And [upon] beds raised high.

56:35
Indeed, We have produced the women of Paradise in a [new] creation

56:36
And made them virgins,

56:37
Devoted [to their husbands] and of equal age,

56:38
For the companions of the right [who are]

56:39
A company of the former peoples

56:40
And a company of the later peoples.

56:41
And the companions of the left - what are the companions of the left?

56:42
[They will be] in scorching fire and scalding water [*Matthew 25:41]

56:43
And a shade of black smoke,

56:44
Neither cool nor beneficial.

56:45
Indeed they were, before that, indulging in affluence,

56:46
And they used to persist in the great violation,

56:47
And they used to say, "When we die and become dust and bones, are we indeed to be resurrected?

56:48
And our forefathers [as well]?"

56:49
Say, "Indeed, the former and the later peoples

56:50
Are to be gathered together for the appointment of a known Day."

56:51
Then indeed you, O those astray [who are] deniers,

56:52
Will be eating from trees of zaqqum

56:53
And filling with it your bellies [*17:60]

56:54
And drinking on top of it from scalding water

56:55
And will drink as the drinking of thirsty camels.

56:56
That is their accommodation on the Day of Recompense.

56:57
We have created you, so why do you not believe?

56:58
Have you seen that which you emit?

56:59
Is it you who creates it, or are We the Creator?

56:60
We have decreed death among you, and We are not to be outdone

56:61
In that We will change your likenesses and produce you in that [form] which you do not know.

56:62
And you have already known the first creation, so will you not remember?

56:63
And have you seen that [seed] which you sow?

56:64
Is it you who makes it grow, or are We the grower?

56:65
If We willed, We could make it [dry] debris, and you would remain in wonder,

56:66
[Saying], "Indeed, we are [now] in debt;

56:67
Rather, we have been deprived."

56:68
And have you seen the water that you drink?

56:69
Is it you who brought it down from the clouds, or is it We who bring it down?

56:70
If We willed, We could make it bitter, so why are you not grateful?

56:71
And have you seen the fire that you ignite?

56:72
Is it you who produced its tree, or are We the producer?

56:73
We have made it a reminder and provision for the travelers,

56:74
So exalt the name of your Lord, the Most Great.

56:75
Then I swear by the setting of the stars,

56:76
And indeed, it is an oath - if you could know - [most] great.

56:77
Indeed, it is a noble Qur'an

56:78
In a Register well-protected;

56:79
None touch it except the purified.

56:80
[It is] a revelation from the Lord of the worlds.

56:81
Then is it to this statement that you are indifferent

56:82
And make [the thanks for] your provision that you deny [the Provider]?

56:83
Then why, when the soul at death reaches the throat

56:84
And you are at that time looking on -

56:85
And Our angels are nearer to him than you, but you do not see -

56:86
Then why do you not, if you are not to be recompensed,

56:87
Bring it back, if you should be truthful?

56:88
And if the deceased was of those brought near to God,

56:89
Then [for him is] rest and bounty and a garden of pleasure.

56:90
And if he was of the companions of the right,

56:91
Then [the angels will say], "Peace for you; [you are] from the companions of the right."

56:92
But if he was of the deniers [who were] astray,

56:93
Then [for him is] accommodation of scalding water

56:94
And burning in Hellfire

56:95
Indeed, this is the true certainty,

56:96
So exalt the name of your Lord, the Most Great.
