69:1  The Reality
69:2  What is the Reality
69:3  Ah, what will convey unto thee what the reality is
69:4  (The tribes of) Thamud and A'ad disbelieved in the judgment to come
69:5  As for Thamud, they were destroyed by the lightning
69:6  And as for A'ad, they were destroyed by a fierce roaring wind
69:7  Which He imposed on them for seven long nights and eight long days so that thou mightest have seen men lying overthrown, as they were hollow trunks of palm-trees
69:8  Canst thou (O Muhammad) see any remnant of them
69:9  And Pharaoh and those before him, and the communities that were destroyed, brought error
69:10  And they disobeyed the messenger of their Lord, therefor did He grip them with a tightening grip
69:11  Lo! when the waters rose, We carried you upon the shi
69:12  That We might make it a memorial for you, and that remembering ears (that heard the story) might remember
69:13  And when the trumpet shall sound one blas
69:14  And the earth with the mountains shall be lifted up and crushed with one crash
69:15  Then, on that day will the Event befall
69:16  And the heaven will split asunder, for that day it will be frail
69:17  And the angels will be on the sides thereof, and eight will uphold the Throne of thy Lord that day, above them
69:18  On that day ye will be exposed; not a secret of you will be hidden
69:19  Then, as for him who is given his record in his right hand, he will say: Take, read my book
69:20  Surely I knew that I should have to meet my reckoning
69:21  Then he will be in blissful stat
69:22  In a high garde
69:23  Whereof the clusters are in easy reach
69:24  (And it will be said unto those therein): Eat and drink at ease for that which ye sent on before you in past days
69:25  But as for him who is given his record in his left hand, he will say: Oh, would that I had not been given my boo
69:26  And knew not what my reckoning
69:27  Oh, would that it had been death
69:28  My wealth hath not availed me
69:29  My power hath gone from me
69:30  (It will be said): Take him and fetter hi
69:31  And then expose him to hell-fir
69:32  And then insert him in a chain whereof the length is seventy cubits
69:33  Lo! He used not to believe in Allah the Tremendous
69:34  And urged not on the feeding of the wretched
69:35  Therefor hath he no lover here this day
69:36  Nor any food save filt
69:37  Which none but sinners eat
69:38  But nay! I swear by all that ye se
69:39  And all that ye see no
69:40  That it is indeed the speech of an illustrious messenger
69:41  It is not poet's speech - little is it that ye believe
69:42  Nor diviner's speech - little is it that ye remember
69:43  It is a revelation from the Lord of the Worlds
69:44  And if he had invented false sayings concerning Us
69:45  We assuredly had taken him by the right han
69:46  And then severed his life-artery
69:47  And not one of you could have held Us off from him
69:48  And lo! it is a warrant unto those who ward off (evil)
69:49  And lo! We know that some among you will deny (it)
69:50  And lo! it is indeed an anguish for the disbelievers
69:51  And lo! it is absolute truth
69:52  So glorify the name of thy Tremendous Lord
