Al-Haaqqa ("The Reality")

Jump to: navigation, search

(69:0) In the name of God, the Gracious, the Compassionate.

(69:1) Reality!

(69:2) What is the reality?

(69:3) Do you know what the reality is?

(69:4) Thamud and Aad rejected the Shocker.

(69:5) As for Thamud, they were annihilated by the devastation.

(69:6 As for Aad, they were annihilated by a furious violent wind.

(69:7) He unleashed it upon them for seven nights and eight days, in succession. You could see the people destroyed in it, as if they were decayed palm trunks.

(69:8) Do you see any legacy for them?

(69:9) And Pharaoh, and those before him, and the sinners, came with wickedness.

(69:10) They disobeyed the messenger of their Lord. So He took them with a devastating requital.

(69:11) When the water flooded, We carried you on the vessel.

(69:12) That We would make it as a reminder for you, and so that any listening ear may understand.

(69:13) When the horn is blown once.

(69:14) The earth and the mountains will be removed from their place and crushed with a single crush.

(69:15) On that day the unavoidable event will come to pass.

(69:16) The heavens will be torn, and on that day it will be flimsy.

(69:17) The angels will be on its borders, and the throne of your Lord will be carried above them by eight.

(69:18) On that day, you will be exposed, nothing from you can be hidden.

(69:19) As for the one who is given his record in his right, he will say, "Here, come and read my record!"

(69:20) "I knew that I was going to be held accountable."

(69:21) So he shall be in a life, well-pleasing.

(69:22) In a lofty Paradise.

(69:23) Its fruits are within reach.

(69:24) "Eat and drink merrily in return for your works in days past."

(69:25) As for he who is given his record in his left, he will say, "Oh, I wish I never received my record,"

(69:26) "That I never knew my account,"

(69:27) "I wish the end had been final,"

(69:28) "My money cannot help me,"

(69:29) "All my power is gone."

(69:30) Take him and shackle him.

(69:31) Then to hell cast him.

(69:32) Then, in a chain that is the length of seventy hands, tie him up.

(69:33) For he did not acknowledge God, the Great.

(69:34) Nor did he advocate the feeding of the poor.

(69:35) Consequently, he has no friend here today.

(69:36) Nor any food, except for pollutants.

(69:37) Food for the sinners.

(69:38) I swear by what you see.

(69:39) What you do not see.

(69:40) This is the utterance of an honorable messenger.

(69:41) It is not the utterance of a poet; rarely do you acknowledge.

(69:42) Nor the utterance of a soothsayer; rarely do you take heed.

(69:43) A revelation from the Lord of the worlds.

(69:44) Had he attributed anything falsely to Us.

(69:45) We would have seized him by the right.

(69:46) Then, We would have severed his lifeline.

(69:47) None of you would be able to prevent it.

(69:48) This is a reminder for the righteous.

(69:49) We know that some of you are deniers.

(69:50) That it is a distress for the ingrates.

(69:51) It is the absolute truth.

(69:52) Therefore, you shall glorify the name of your Lord, the Great.
