The Qurʾan What is This? A current English-language version of the Qur'an, published in 2004
Translation by M.A.S. Abdel Haleem

56. That Which is Coming (75 – 96)

75I swear by the positions of the stars— 76a mighty oath, if you only knew— 77that this is truly a noble Qurʾan, 78in a protected Record 79that only the purified can touch, 80sent down from the Lord of all being. 81How can you scorn this statement?82And how, in return for the livelihood you are given, can you deny it?83When the soul of a dying man comes up to his throat84while you gaze on— 85We are nearer to him than you, though you do not see Us— 86why, if you are not to be judged, 87do you not restore his soul to him, if what you say is true?88If that dying person is one of those who will be brought near to God, 89he will have rest, ease, and a Garden of Bliss;90if he is one of those on the Right,91[he will hear], ‘Peace be on you,‘ from his companions on the Right; 92but if he is one of those who denied the truth and went astray, 93he will be welcomed with scalding water. 94He will burn in Hell.

95This is the certain truth: 96[Prophet], glorify the name of your Lord the Supreme.
