Surah -Al-Waqia

1 . When the Event inevitable cometh to pass,

2 . Then will no (soul) entertain falsehood concerning its coming.

3 . (Many) will it bring low; (many) will it exalt;

4 . When the earth shall be shaken to its depths,

5 . And the mountains shall be crumbled to atoms,

6 . Becoming dust scattered abroad,

7 . And ye shall be sorted out into three classes.

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).

11 . These will be those Nearest to Allah:

12 . In Gardens of Bliss:

13 . A number of people from those of old,

14 . And a few from those of later times.

15 . (They will be) on Thrones encrusted (with gold and precious stones),

16 . Reclining on them, facing each other.

17 . Round about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness),

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:

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,-

23 . Like unto Pearls well-guarded.

24 . A Reward for the deeds of their past (life).

25 . Not frivolity will they hear therein, nor any taint of ill,-

26 . Only the saying, "Peace! Peace".

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,

29 . Among Talh trees with flowers (or fruits) piled one above another,-

30 . In shade long-extended,

31 . By water flowing constantly,

32 . And fruit in abundance.

33 . Whose season is not limited, nor (supply) forbidden,

34 . And on Thrones (of Dignity), raised high.

35 . We have created (their Companions) of special creation.

36 . And made them virgin - pure (and undefiled), -

37 . Beloved (by nature), equal in age,-

38 . For the Companions of the Right Hand.

39 . A (goodly) number from those of old,

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,

43 . And in the shades of Black Smoke:

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),

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?-

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.

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.

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!"

56 . Such will be their entertainment on the Day of Requital!

57 . It is We Who have created you: why will ye not witness the Truth?

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

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?

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):

67 . "Indeed are we shut out (of the fruits of our labour)"

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?

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?

73 . We have made it a memorial (of Our handiwork), and an article of comfort and convenience for the denizens of deserts.

74 . Then celebrate with praises the name of thy Lord, the Supreme!

75 . Furthermore I call to witness the setting of the Stars,-

76 . And that is indeed a mighty adjuration if ye but knew,-

77 . That this is indeed a qur´an Most Honourable,

78 . In 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?

82 . And have ye made it your livelihood that ye should declare it false?

83 . Then why do ye not (intervene) when (the soul of the dying man) reaches the throat,-

84 . And ye the while (sit) looking on,-

85 . But We are nearer to him than ye, and yet see not,-

86 . Then why do ye not,- If you are exempt from (future) account,-

87 . Call back the soul, if ye are true (in the claim of independence)?

88 . Thus, then, if he be of those Nearest to Allah,

89 . (There is for him) Rest and Satisfaction, and a Garden of Delights.

90 . And if he be of the Companions of the Right Hand,

91 . (For him is the salutation), "Peace be unto thee", from the Companions of the Right Hand.

92 . And if he be of those who treat (Truth) as Falsehood, who go wrong,

93 . For him is Entertainment with Boiling Water.

94 . And burning in Hell-Fire.

95 . Verily, this is the Very Truth and Certainly.

96 . So celebrate with praises the name of thy Lord, the Supreme.
