We have created you; then why do you not believe in it?

[56:58]
So, tell Me about the semen you drop (in the wombs):

[56:59]
Is it you who create it, or are We the Creator?

[56:60]
We have appointed (the times of) death among you, and We cannot be frustrated

[56:61]
from replacing you with others like you, and creating you (afresh) in that (form) which you do not know.

[56:62]
And you certainly know the first creation; then why do you not take lesson?

[56:63]
Well, tell Me about that (seed) which you sow:

[56:64]
Is it you who grow it, or are We the One who grows?

[56:65]
If We so will, We can certainly make it crumbled, and you will remain wondering,

[56:66]
(and saying,) .We are laden with debt,

[56:67]
rather we are totally deprived..

[56:68]
Again, tell Me about the water you drink:

[56:69]
Is it you who have brought it down from the clouds, or are We the One who sends (it) down?

[56:70]
If We so will, We can make it bitter in taste. So why do you not offer gratitude?

[56:71]
Now tell Me about the fire you kindle:

[56:72]
Is it you who have originated its tree, 5 or are We the Originator?

[56:73]
We have made it a reminder (of Our infinite power, and of the fire of Hell) and a benefit for travelers in deserts.

[56:74]
So, proclaim purity of the name of your Lord, the Magnificent.

[56:75]
So, I swear by the setting places of the stars,

[56:76]
__and indeed it is a great oath, if you are to appreciate__

[56:77]
it is surely the Noble Qur‘an,

[56:78]
(recorded already) in a protected book (i.e. the Preserved Tablet)

[56:79]
that is not touched except by the purified ones (the angels).

[56:80]
__ a revelation from the Lord of the worlds.

[56:81]
Is it this discourse that you take lightly,

[56:82]
and take your denial as your livelihood?

[56:83]
So why (do you) not (intervene) when the soul (of a dying person) reaches the throat,

[56:84]
and you are watching?

[56:85]
And We are closer to him than you, but you do not perceive.
[56:86]
So, if you are not going to be recompensed (in the Hereafter for your deeds), then why do you not

[56:87]
bring the soul back, if you are truthful?

[56:88]
So, in case he (the dying person) is from among those blessed with nearness,

[56:89]
then (for him) there is comfort and fragrance and garden of bliss.

[56:90]
And in case he is from among the People of the Right,

[56:91]
then, (it will be said to him,) .Peace is for you, as you are one of the People of the Right..

[56:92]
But if he is one of the deniers, the astray,

[56:93]
then (for him) there is entertainment from boiling water,

[56:94]
and burning in the Hell.

[56:95]
Indeed this is certainty in its true sense.

[56:96]
So, proclaim purity of the name of your Lord, the Magnificent.
