Asalam o Alykum, welcome to 163rd part of our Discover the Holy Quran project. In this part we will read verse 35 to 70 of Surah Al-Waqi’a. Let’s begin:
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
35- We heave 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 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 upalatable): then why do ye not give thanks?
May Allah Bless us with His Mercy and Forgive our sins. (Ameen)
