Reminder mentioned in Khutbah by Dr. Amjad Bukhari for pondering:



56:1

إِذَا وَقَعَتِ ٱلْوَاقِعَةُ ١

When the Inevitable Event takes place,


56:2

لَيْسَ لِوَقْعَتِهَا كَاذِبَةٌ ٢

then no one can deny it has come.


56:3

خَافِضَةٌۭ رَّافِعَةٌ ٣

It will debase ˹some˺ and elevate ˹others˺.


56:4

إِذَا رُجَّتِ ٱلْأَرْضُ رَجًّۭا ٤

When the earth will be violently shaken,


56:5

وَبُسَّتِ ٱلْجِبَالُ بَسًّۭا ٥

and the mountains will be crushed to pieces,


56:6

فَكَانَتْ هَبَآءًۭ مُّنۢبَثًّۭا ٦

becoming scattered ˹particles of˺ dust,


56:7

وَكُنتُمْ أَزْوَٰجًۭا ثَلَـٰثَةًۭ ٧

you will ˹all˺ be ˹divided into˺ three groups:


56:8

فَأَصْحَـٰبُ ٱلْمَيْمَنَةِ مَآ أَصْحَـٰبُ ٱلْمَيْمَنَةِ ٨

the people of the right, how ˹blessed˺ will they be;


56:9

وَأَصْحَـٰبُ ٱلْمَشْـَٔمَةِ مَآ أَصْحَـٰبُ ٱلْمَشْـَٔمَةِ ٩

the people of the left, how ˹miserable˺ will they be;


56:10

وَٱلسَّـٰبِقُونَ ٱلسَّـٰبِقُونَ ١٠

and the foremost ˹in faith˺ will be the foremost ˹in Paradise˺.

أُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ ٱلْمُقَرَّبُونَ ١١

They are the ones nearest ˹to Allah˺,
