Al-Haaqqa ("The Reality")
(69:0) In the name of God, the Gracious, the Compassionate.
(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.
