69:1  The Infallible
69:2  what is the Infallible
69:3  and what should make thee know what the Infallible is
69:4  Thamud and 'Ad called the Striking Day a lie
69:5  but as for Thamud they perished by the shock
69:6  and as for 'Ad they perished with the violent cold blast of wind
69:7  which He subjected against them for seven nights and eight days consecutively
69:8  Thou mightest see the people therein prostrate as though they were palm stumps thrown down, and canst thou see any of them left
69:9  And Pharaoh and those before him of the overturned Cities committed sins
69:10  and they rebelled against the apostle of their Lord, and He seized them with an excessive punishment
69:11  Verily, we, when the water surged, bore you on it in a sailing ship
69:12  to make it a memorial for you, and that the retentive ear might hold it
69:13  And when the trumpet shall be blown with one blast
69:14  and the earth shall be borne away, and the mountains too, and both be crushed with one crushing
69:15  on that day shall the inevitable happen
69:16  and the heaven on that day shall be cleft asunder, for on that day shall it wane
69:17  and the angels upon the sides thereof; and above them on that day shall eight bear the throne of thy Lord
69:18  On the day when ye shall be set forth no hidden thing of yours shall be concealed
69:19  And as for him who is given his book in his right hand, he shall say, 'Here! take and read my book
69:20  Verily, I thought that I should meet my reckoning;
69:21  and he shall be in a pleasing life
69:22  in a lofty garden
69:23  whose fruits are nigh to cull
69:24  'Eat ye and drink with good digestion, for what ye did aforetime in the days that have gone by!
69:25  But as for him who is given his book in his left hand he shall say, 'O, would that I had not received my book
69:26  I did not know what my account would be
69:27  O, would that it had been an end of me
69:28  my wealth availed me not
69:29  my authority has perished from me!
69:30  'Take him and fetter him
69:31  then in hell broil him
69:32  then into a chain whose length is seventy cubits force him
69:33  verily, he believed not in the mighty God
69:34  nor was he particular to feed the poor
69:35  therefore he has not here today any warm friend
69:36  nor any food except foul ichor
69:37  which none save sinners shall eat!
69:38  I need not swear by what ye se
69:39  or what ye do not see
69:40  verily, it is the speech of a noble apostle
69:41  and it is not the speech of a poet:- little is it ye believe
69:42  And it is not the speech of a soothsayer,- little is it that ye mind!
69:43  a revelation from the Lord of the worlds
69:44  Why if he had invented against us any sayings
69:45  we would have seized him by the right hand
69:46  then we would have cut his jugular vein
69:47  nor could any one of you have kept us off from him
69:48  Verily, it is a memorial to the pious
69:49  and, verily, we know that there are amongst you those who say it is a lie
69:50  and, verily, it is a source of sighing to the misbelievers
69:51  and, verily, it is certain truth
69:52  Therefore celebrate the name of thy mighty Lord
