And the people of the left—how ˹miserable˺ will they be!˹They will be˺ in scorching heat and boiling water,in the shade of black smoke, neither cool nor refreshing.Indeed, before this ˹torment˺ they were spoiled by luxury, and persisted in the worst of sin.They used to ask ˹mockingly˺, “When we are dead and reduced to dust and bones, will we really be resurrected?And our forefathers as well?” Quran 56:41~48

وَأَصْحَبُ ٱلشِّمَالِ مَآ أَصْحَبُ ٱلشِّمَالِ ‎
‏فِى سَمُومٍۢ وَحَمِيمٍۢ ‎
‏وَظِلٍّۢ مِّن يَحْمُومٍۢ ‎
‏لَّا بَارِدٍۢ وَلَا كَرِيمٍ ‎
‏إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا۟ قَبْلَ ذَلِكَ مُتْرَفِينَ ‎
‏وَكَانُوا۟ يُصِرُّونَ عَلَى ٱلْحِنثِ ٱلْعَظِيمِ ‎
‏وَكَانُوا۟ يَقُولُونَ أَئِذَا مِتْنَا وَكُنَّا تُرَابًۭا وَعِظَمًا أَءِنَّا لَمَبْعُوثُونَ ‎
‏أَوَءَابَآؤُنَا ٱلْأَوَّلُونَ ‎
The Surah talks about the resurrection that will definitely take place. It is a fact undeniable. The human beings then will be in three different groups. The faithful are of two types: those who are the pioneers and are foremost in their faith and struggle in the path of Allah. They are a large number from amongst the earlier community and a small from among the later generations. Then the rest of the people are believers and those who oppose the faith. Allah’s rewards are for the faithful and his anger and chastisement is waiting for the opponents of faith.
The Surah then invites human beings to think about themselves and the things that they use daily and consider who created all these things. It talks about the Qur’an and its profound and consistent message and then finally reminds about death and the coming end of every being.
اور بائیں ہاتھ والے (افسوس) بائیں ہاتھ والے کیا (ہی عذاب میں) ہیں 
(یعنی دوزخ کی) لپٹ اور کھولتے ہوئے پانی میں 
اور سیاہ دھوئیں کے سائے میں 
(جو) نہ ٹھنڈا (ہے) نہ خوشنما 
یہ لوگ اس سے پہلے عیشِ نعیم میں پڑے ہوئے تھے 
اور گناہ عظیم پر اڑے ہوئے تھے 
اور کہا کرتے تھے کہ بھلا جب ہم مرگئے اور مٹی ہوگئے اور ہڈیاں (ہی ہڈیاں رہ گئے) تو کیا ہمیں پھر اُٹھنا ہوگا؟ 
اور کیا ہمارے باپ دادا کو بھی؟
The reality will come to pass. The humanity will be in three camps: people of the right hand, people of the left hand and the foremost in faith. The reward of the believers.
The guilty and their punishment. Arguments about the Tawhid and Akhirah.
The Qur’an and its consistent message. Reminder about death, divine judgment and the reward and punishment.
