Surah Al-Waqiah 56:81-96

56:81 Would you, now, look down with disdain on a tiding like this.

56:82 And make it your daily bread [as it were] to call the truth a lie?

56:83 Why, then, when [the last breath] comes up to the throat [of a dying man]. 

56:84 The while you are [helplessly] looking on. 

56:85 And while We are closer to him than you, although you see [Us] not.

56:86 why, then, if [you think that] you are not truly dependent [on Us].

56:87 Can you not cause that [ebbing life] to return – if what you claim is true?

56:88 [All of you are destined to die]. Now if one happens to be of those who are drawn close unto God.

56:89 Happiness [awaits him in the life to come], and inner fulfillment, and a garden of bliss.

56:90 And if one happens to be of those who have attained to righteousness.

56:91 [He, too, will be welcomed into paradise with the words] “Peace be unto thee [that art] of those who have attained to righteousness!”

56:92 But if one happens to be of those who are wont to call the truth a lie, and [thus] go astray.

56:93 A welcome of burning despair [awaits him in the life to come]. 

56:94 And the heat of a blazing fire!  

56:95 Verily, this is indeed the truth of truths!

56:96 Extol, then, the limitless glory of thy Sustainer’s mighty name!

The divine scriptures are God’s beacons to the world. Surely God offered His trust to the heavens and the earth, and the hills, but they shrank from bearing it and were afraid of it. And man undertook it.
