Chapter Scripts

Surah Al-Waqiah 56:41-50

56:41 But as for those who have persevered in evil – what of those who have persevered in evil?

56:42 [They will find themselves] in the midst of scorching winds, and burning despair.

56:43 And the shadows of black smoke. 

56:44 [Shadows] neither cooling nor soothing.

56:45 For, behold, in times gone by they were wont to abandon themselves wholly to the pursuit of pleasures.

56:46 And would persist in heinous sinning. 

56:47 And would say, “What! After we have died and become mere dust and bones, shall we, forsooth, be raised from the dead?  

56:48 And perhaps, too, our forebears of old?”

56:49 Say “Verily, those of olden times and those of later times. 

56:50 Will indeed be gathered together at an appointed time on a Day known [only to God].
