056.000 The Event

 

056.001

When the event befalleth -

056.002

There is no denying that it will befall -

056.003

Abasing (some), exalting (others);

056.004

When the earth is shaken with a shock

056.005

And the hills are ground to powder

056.006

So that they become a scattered dust,

056.007

And ye will be three kinds:

056.008

(First) those on the right hand; what of those on the right hand ?

056.009

And (then) those on the left hand; what of those on the left hand ?

056.010

And the foremost in the race, the foremost in the race:

056.011

Those are they who will be brought nigh

056.012

In gardens of delight;

056.013

A multitude of those of old

056.014

And a few of those of later time.

056.015

On lined couches,

056.016

Reclining therein face to face.

056.017

There wait on them immortal youths

056.018

With bowls and ewers and a cup from a pure spring

056.019

Wherefrom they get no aching of the head nor any madness,

056.020

And fruit that they prefer

056.021

And flesh of fowls that they desire.

056.022

And (there are) fair ones with wide, lovely eyes,

056.023

Like unto hidden pearls,

056.024

Reward for what they used to do.

056.025

There hear they no vain speaking nor recrimination

056.026

(Naught) but the saying: Peace, (and again) Peace.

056.027

And those on the right hand; what of those on the right hand ?

056.028

Among thornless lote-trees

056.029

And clustered plantains,

056.030

And spreading shade,

056.031

And water gushing,

056.032

And fruit in plenty

056.033

Neither out of reach nor yet forbidden,

056.034

And raised couches;

056.035

Lo! We have created them a (new) creation

056.036

And made them virgins,

056.037

Lovers, friends,

056.038

For those on the right hand;

056.039

A multitude of those of old

056.040

And a multitude of those of later time.

056.041

And those on the left hand: What of those on the left hand ?

056.042

In scorching wind and scalding water

056.043

And shadow of black smoke,

056.044

Neither cool nor refreshing.

056.045

Lo! heretofore they were effete with luxury

056.046

And used to persist in the awful sin.

056.047

And they used to say: When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then, forsooth, be raised again,

056.048

And also our forefathers ?

056.049

Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Lo! those of old and those of later time

056.050

Will all be brought together to the tryst of an appointed day.

056.051

Then lo! ye, the erring, the deniers,

056.052

Ye verily will eat of a tree called Zaqqum

056.053

And will fill your bellies therewith;

056.054

And thereon ye will drink of boiling water,

056.055

Drinking even as the camel drinketh.

056.056

This will be their welcome on the Day of Judgment.

056.057

We created you. Will ye then admit the truth ?

056.058

Have ye seen that which ye emit ?

056.059

Do ye create it or are We the Creator ?

056.060

We mete out death among you, and We are not to be outrun,

056.061

That We may transfigure you and make you what ye know not.

056.062

And verily ye know the first creation. Why, then, do ye not reflect ?

056.063

Have ye seen that which ye cultivate ?

056.064

Is it ye who foster it, or are We the Fosterer ?

056.065

If We willed, We verily could make it chaff, then would ye cease not to exclaim:

056.066

Lo! we are laden with debt!

056.067

Nay, but we are deprived!

056.068

Have ye observed the water which ye drink ?

056.069

Is it ye who shed it from the raincloud, or are We the Shedder ?

056.070

If We willed We verily could make it bitter. Why then, give ye not thanks ?

056.071

Have ye observed the fire which ye strike out;

056.072

Was it ye who made the tree thereof to grow, or were We the grower ?

056.073

We, even We, appointed it a memorial and a comfort for the dwellers in the wilderness.

056.074

Therefor (O Muhammad), praise the name of thy Lord, the Tremendous.

056.075

Nay, I swear by the places of the stars -

056.076

And lo! that verily is a tremendous oath, if ye but knew -

056.077

That (this) is indeed a noble Qur'an

056.078

In a Book kept hidden

056.079

Which none toucheth save the purified,

056.080

A revelation from the Lord of the Worlds.

056.081

Is it this Statement that ye scorn,

056.082

And make denial thereof your livelihood ?

056.083

Why, then, when (the soul) cometh up to the throat (of the dying)

056.084

And ye are at that moment looking

056.085

- And We are nearer unto him than ye are, but ye see not -

056.086

Why then, if ye are not in bondage (unto Us),

056.087

Do ye not force it back, if ye are truthful ?

056.088

Thus if he is of those brought nigh,

056.089

Then breath of life, and plenty, and a Garden of delight.

056.090

And if he is of those on the right hand,

056.091

Then (the greeting) "Peace be unto thee" from those on the right hand.

056.092

But if he is of the rejecters, the erring,

056.093

Then the welcome will be boiling water

056.094

And roasting at hell-fire.

056.095

Lo! this is certain truth.

056.096

Therefor (O Muhammad) praise the name of thy Lord, the Tremendous.
