In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
Scene of the doomsday when mankind will be divided into three groups, A Reward for the forehand group
1 When the event inevitable cometh to pass. 5222
2 Then will no (soul) entertain falsehood concerning its coming.
3 (Many) will it bring low (many) will it exalt; 5223
4 When the earth shall be shaken to its depths
5 And the mountains shall be crumbled to atoms 5224
6 Becoming dust scattered abroad
7 And ye shall be sorted out into three classes. 5225
8 Then (there will be) the Companions of the Right Hand what will be the Companions of the Right Hand?
9 And the Companions of the left hand what will be the Companions of the Left Hand?
10 And those Foremost (in Faith) will be Foremost (in the Hereafter). 5226
11 These will be those Nearest to Allah: 5227
12 In Gardens of Bliss:
13 A number of people from those of old 5228
14 And a few from those of later times.
15 (They will be) on Thrones encrusted (with gold and precious stones). 5229
16 Reclining on them facing each other. 5230
17 Round about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness). 5231
18 With goblets (shining) beakers and cups (filled) out of clear-flowing fountains:
19 No after-ache will they receive therefrom nor will they suffer intoxication: 5232
20 And with fruits any that they may select;
21 And the flesh of fowls any that they may desire.
22 And (there will be) Companions with beautiful big and lustrous eyes-- 5233
23 Like unto Pearls well-guarded. 5234
24 A Reward for the Deeds of their past (Life).
25 No frivolity will they hear therein nor any taint of ill 5235
26 Only the saying "Peace! Peace." 5236
Reward for the right-hand group
27 The Companions of the Right Hand what will be the Companions of the Right Hand?
28 (They will be) among lote trees without thorns 5237
29 Among Talh trees with flowers (or fruits) piled one above another 5238
30 In shade long-extended
31 By water flowing constantly
32 And fruit in abundance
33 Whose season is not limited nor (supply) forbidden 5239
34 And on Thrones (of Dignity) raised high.
35 We have created (their Companions) of special creation. 5240
36 And made them virgin-pure (and undefiled)
37 Beloved (by nature) equal in age
38 For the companions of the Right Hand.
Punishment for the left-hand group
39 A (goodly) number from those of old 5241
40 And a (goodly) number from those of later times.
41 The Companions of the Left Hand-what will be the Companions of the Left Hand?
42 (They will be) in the midst of a fierce Blast of Fire and in Boiling Water 5242
43 And in the shades of Black Smoke: 5243
44 Nothing (will there be) to refresh nor to please:
45 For that they were wont to be indulged before that in wealth (and luxury). 5244
46 And persisted obstinately in wickedness supreme!
47 And they used to say "what! when we die and become dust and bones shall we then indeed be raised up again? 5245
48 "(We) and our fathers of old?"
49 Say: "Yea those of old and those of later times
50 "All will certainly be gathered together for the meeting appointed for a Day Well-known. 5246
51 "Then will ye truly o ye that go wrong and treat (Truth) as Falsehood!
52 "Ye will surely taste of the Tree of Zaqqum. 5247
53 "Then will ye fill your insides therewith
54 "And drink Boiling Water on top of it:
55 "Indeed ye shall drink like diseased camels raging with thirst! 5248
56 Such will be their entertainment on the Day of Requital!
Admonition to the disbelievers with the examples of creation
57 It is We Who have created you: why will ye not witness the Truth? 5249
58 Do ye then see? The (human seed) that ye throw out,
59 Is it ye who create it or are We the Creators?
60 We have decreed Death to be your common lot and We are not to be frustrated 5250
61 From changing your Forms and creating you (again) in (Forms) that ye know not.
62 And ye certainly know already the first form of creation: why then do ye not celebrate His praises?
63 See ye the seed that ye sow in the ground? 5251
64 Is it ye that cause it to grow or are We the Cause?
65 Were it Our Will we could crumble it to dry powder and ye would be left in wonderment
66 (Saying) "We are indeed left with debts (for nothing): 5252
67 "Indeed are we shut out (of the fruits of our labor)."
68 See ye the water which ye drink?
69 Do ye bring it Down (in rain) from the Cloud or do We?
70 Were it Our Will We could make it salt (and unpalatable): then why do ye not give thanks? 5253
71 See ye the Fire which ye kindle?
72 Is it ye who grow the tree which feeds the fire or do We grow it? 5254
73 We have made it a memorial (of our handiwork) and an article of comfort and convenience for the denizens of deserts. 5255 5256
74 Then celebrate with praises the name of the Lord the Supreme: 5257
Testimony of Allah about the Quran
75 Furthermore I call to witness the setting of the Stars 5258
76 And that is indeed a mighty adjuration if ye but knew 5259
77 That this is indeed a Qur'an most honorable 5260
78 In a Book well-guarded
79 Which none shall touch but those who are clean:
80 A Revelation from the Lord of the Worlds.
81 Is it such a Message that ye would hold in light esteem? 5261
82 And have ye made it your livelihood that ye should declare it false? 5262
83 Then why do ye not (intervene) when (the soul of the dying man) reaches the throat 5263
84 And ye the while (sit) looking on 5264
85 But We are nearer to him than ye and ye see not
86 Then why do you not if you are exempt from (future) account 5265
87 Call back the soul if ye are true (in your claim of Independence)? 5266
88 Thus then if he be of those Nearest to Allah 5267
89 (There is for him) Rest and Satisfaction and a Garden of Delights. 5268
90 And if he be of the Companions of the Right Hand 5269
91 (For him is the salutation) "Peace be unto thee" from the Companions of the Right Hand. 5270
92 And if he be of those who treat (truth) as Falsehood who go wrong 5271
93 For him is Entertainment with Boiling Water.
94 And burning in Hell-Fire.
95 Verily this is the Very Truth and Certainty. 5272
96 So celebrate with praises the name of thy Lord the Supreme. 5273
