69:1  The sure Reality
69:2  What is the sure Reality
69:3  And what would make you realize what the sure Reality is
69:4  Thamud and A´ad called the Stunning Calamity (the Day of Judgment) a lie
69:5  But the Thamud, they were destroyed by the Storm of thunder and lightening
69:6  And the A´ad, they were destroyed by a roaring, violent wind
69:7  Which He made to prevail against them for seven nights and eight days unremittingly, so that you might have seen the people therein prostrate as if they were the trunks of hollow palms
69:8  Do you then see any of them remaining
69:9  And Pharaoh and those before him and the overthrown cities (Sodom and Gomorrah) continuously committed sins
69:10  And they disobeyed the Messengers of their Lord, so He punished them with a severe punishment
69:11  Surely We bore you (mankind) up in the Ark when the water rose high
69:12  So that We may make it a reminder to you, and that the retaining ear might retain it (in memory)
69:13  And when the trumpet is blown with a single blast
69:14  And the earth and the mountains are borne away and crushed with a single crushing
69:15  On that day shall the Great Event come to pass
69:16  And the heaven shall cleave asunder, so that on that Day it shall be frail
69:17  And the angels shall be on the sides thereof; and above them eight shall bear the Throne of their Lord that Day
69:18  On that day you shall be exposed to view, no secret of yours shall remain hidden
69:19  Then as for him who is given his book in his right hand, he will say, "Here! Read my book
69:20  "Surely I knew that I shall meet my account."
69:21  So he shall be in a life of Bliss
69:22  In a lofty garden
69:23  The fruits of which are near at hand
69:24  Eat and drink pleasantly for what you did beforehand in the days gone by
69:25  And as for him who is given his book in his left hand he shall say, "O would that my book had never been given me
69:26  "And I did not know how my account stood
69:27  "O would that it (death) had made an end of me
69:28  "My wealth has availed me nothing
69:29  "My authority has perished away from me."
69:30  (The command is given) "Seize him, and chain him
69:31  "Then cast him into the burning Fire
69:32  "Then march him tied to a chain the length of which is seventy cubits
69:33  "Surely he did not believe in Allah, the Great
69:34  "Nor did he urge the feeding of the poor
69:35  "Therefore he has not here today a true friend
69:36  "Nor any food except filth
69:37  "Which none but the wrongdoers eat."
69:38  But nay! I swear (or call to witness) by that which you see
69:39  And that which you do not see
69:40  Most surely, it is the Word brought by an honoured Messenger
69:41  And it is not the word of a poet; little is it that you believe
69:42  Nor the word of a soothsayer; little is it that you mind
69:43  It is a revelation from the Lord of the worlds
69:44  And if he had fabricated against Us some of the sayings
69:45  We would certainly have seized him by the right hand
69:46  Then We would certainly have severed his life-artery
69:47  And not one of you could have withheld Us from him
69:48  And verily, it is a reminder for those who guard against evil
69:49  And verily, We know that some of you are rejecters
69:50  And verily, it is a source of great grief to the unbelievers
69:51  And verily, it is the Truth of Certainty
69:52  Therefore-glorify the name of your Lord, the Most High
