1When the Event (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) befalls.
2And there can be no denial of its befalling.
3Bringing low (some - those who will enter Hell) Exalting (others - those who will enter Paradise). [Tafsir Ibn Kathir]
4When the earth will be shaken with a terrible shake.
5And the mountains will be powdered to dust,
6So that they will become floating dust particles.
7And you (all) will be in three groups.
8So those on the Right Hand (i.e. those who will be given their Records in their right hands) - how (fortunate) will be those on the Right Hand! (As a respect for them, because they will enter Paradise).
9And those on the Left Hand (i.e. those who will be given their Record in their left hands) - how (unfortunate) will be those on the Left Hand! (As a disgrace for them, because they will enter Hell).
10And those foremost [(in Islamic Faith of Monotheism and in performing righteous deeds) in the life of this world on the very first call for to embrace Islam] will be foremost (in Paradise).
11These will be the nearest (to Allah).
12In the Gardens of Delight (Paradise).
13A multitude of those (foremost) will be from the first generations (who embraced Islam).
14And a few of those (foremost) will be from the later generations.
15(They will be) on thrones woven with gold and precious stones.
16Reclining thereon, face to face.
17Immortal boys will go around them (serving),
18With cups, and jugs, and a glass of flowing wine,
19Wherefrom they will get neither any aching of the head, nor any intoxication.
20And with fruit that they may choose.
21And with the flesh of fowls that they desire.
22And (there will be) Hur (fair females) with wide, lovely eyes (as wives for "Al-Muttaqun" - the pious - See V. 2:2),
23Like unto preserved pearls.
24A reward for what they used to do.
25No Laghw (dirty, false, evil vain talk) will they hear therein, nor any sinful speech (like backbiting).
26But only the saying of: Salam! Salam! (greetings with peace)!
27And those on the Right Hand - how (fortunate) will be those on the Right Hand?
28(They will be) among thornless lote-trees,
29And among Talh (banana-trees) with fruits piled one above another,
30And in shade long-extended,
31And by water flowing constantly,
32And fruit in plenty,
33Whose supply is not cut off (by change of season), nor are they out of reach,
34And on couches or thrones, raised high.
35Verily, We have created them (maidens) of special creation.
36And made them virgins.
37Loving (their husbands only), (and) of equal age.
38For those on the Right Hand.
39A multitude of those (on the Right Hand) will be from the first generation (who embraced Islam).
40And a multitude of those (on the Right Hand) will be from the later generations.
41And those on the Left Hand - how (unfortunate) will be those on the Left Hand?
42In fierce hot wind and boiling water,
43And shadow of black smoke,
44(That shadow) neither cool, nor (even) pleasant,
45Verily, before that, they indulged in luxury,
46And were persisting in great sin (joining partners in worship along with Allah, committing murder and other crimes)
47And they used to say: "When we die and become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be resurrected?
48"And also our forefathers?"
49Say (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم): "(Yes) verily, those of old, and those of later times.
50"All will surely be gathered together for appointed Meeting of a known Day.
51"Then moreover, verily you the erring-ones, the deniers (of Resurrection)!
52"You verily will eat of the trees of Zaqqum.
53"Then you will fill your bellies therewith,
54"And drink boiling water on top of it.
55"And you will drink (that) like thirsty camels!"
56That will be their entertainment on the Day of Recompense!
57We created you: then why do you believe not?
58Then tell Me (about) the (human) semen that you emit.
59Is it you who create it (i.e. make this semen into a perfect human being), or are We the Creator?
60We have decreed death to you all, and We are not outstripped,
61To transfigure you and create you in (forms) that you know not.
62And indeed, you have already known the first form of creation (i.e. the creation of Adam): why then do you not remember (or take heed)?
63Then tell Me about the seed that you sow in the ground.
64Is it you that make it grow, or are We the Grower?
65Were it Our Will, We could crumble it to dry pieces, and you would be regretful (or left in wonderment) [Tafsir Ibn Kathir].
66(Saying): "We are indeed Mughramun (i.e. ruined or have lost the money without any profit, or are punished by the loss of all that we spend for cultivation)! (Tafsir Al-Qurtubi)
67"Nay, but we are deprived!"
68Then tell Me about the water that you drink.
69Is it you who cause it from the rain-clouds to come down, or are We the Causer of it to come down?
70If We willed, We verily could make it salt (and undrinkable): why then do you not give thanks (to Allah)?
71Then tell Me about the fire which you kindle.
72Is it you who made the tree thereof to grow, or are We the Grower?
73We have made it a Reminder (of the Hell-fire in the Hereafter), and an article of use for the travellers (and all the others, in this world).
74Then glorify with praises the Name of your Lord, the Most Great.
75So I swear by the setting of the stars.
76And verily that is indeed a great oath, if you but know.
77That (this) is indeed an honourable recitation (the Noble Qur'an).
78In a Book well-guarded (with Allah in the heaven i.e. Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz ).
79Which (that Book with Allah) none can touch but the purified (i.e. the angels).
80A Revelation (this Qur'an) from the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinn and all that exists).
81Is it such a talk (this Qur'an) that you (disbelievers) deny?
82And instead (of thanking Allah) for the provision He gives you, you deny (Him by disbelief)!
83Then why do you not (intervene) when (the soul of a dying person) reaches the throat?
84And you at the moment are looking on,
85But We (i.e. Our angels who take the soul) are nearer to him than you, but you see not, (Tafsir At-Tabari)
86Then why do you not - if you are exempt from the reckoning and recompense (punishment) -
87Bring back the soul (to its body), if you are truthful?
88Then, if he (the dying person) be of the Muqarrabun (those brought near to Allah),
89(There is for him) rest and provision, and a Garden of Delights (Paradise).
90And if he (the dying person) be of those on the Right Hand,
91Then there is safety and peace (from the Punishment of Allah) for those on the right Hand.
92But if he (the dying person) be of the denying (of the Resurrection), the erring (away from the Right Path of Islamic Monotheism),
93Then for him is an entertainment with boiling water.
94And burning in Hell-fire.
95Verily, this! This is an absolute Truth with certainty.
96So glorify with praises the Name of your Lord, the Most Great.
