Muhammad Taqi Usmani rendition of Surah The Reality, The Inevitable(al-Haqqah)
69:1 The Imminent Happening!
69:2 What is the Imminent Happening?
69:3 And what can let you know what the Imminent happening is?
69:4 Thamud and ‘Ad had denied (the happening of) the Shocking Event (the Day of Judgment).
69:5 As for Thamud, they were destroyed by that (dreadful cry), which exceeded all limits.
69:6 And as for ‘Ad, they were destroyed by a violent windstorm
69:7 that He imposed on them for seven nights and eight consecutive days; so you could see them thrown on the ground, as if they were trunks of hollow palm-trees.
69:8 Now, do you see any remnant of them?
69:9 And Fir‘aun (Pharaoh) and those before him and the overthrown towns came up with evil,
69:10 and they disobeyed the messenger of their Lord, so He seized them with an extremely severe seizure.
69:11 When the water overflowed (in the Deluge of NuH), We let you (O mankind,) board the floating ship,
69:12 so that We make it a reminder for you, and so that a preserving ear (that hears their story) may preserve it.
69:13 Then, once the Trumpet will be blown for the first time,
69:14 and the earth and the mountains will be lifted and crushed into pieces with a single blow,
69:15 then on that Day the Happening will happen,
69:16 and the sky will burst apart, while it will have become frail on that day.
69:17 And the angels will be on its borders. And on that Day, the Throne of your Lord will be carried above them by eight (angels).
69:18 On that day, you will be brought forward in a way that no secret of yours will remain secret.
69:19 Now, as for him who is given his book in his right hand, he will say (to his colleagues), .Come here, read my book.
69:20 I was sure that I would encounter my reckoning.
69:21 So he will be in a well-pleasing life
69:22 in a lofty garden,
69:23 the fruits of which will be close at hand.
69:24 (It will be said to such people,) .Eat and drink with pleasure, as a reward for what you did in advance during past days.
69:25 As for him who will be given his book in his left hand, he will say, . Oh, would that I had not been given my book,
69:26 and I had never known what my account is!
69:27 Oh, would that it (death) had been the end of the matter!
69:28 My wealth has not been of any use to me.
69:29 My power has gone from me for good.
69:30 (Then it will be said to angels,) .Seize him, then put a collar around his neck,
69:31 and then, let him burn in the blazing fire.
69:32 Thereafter, fasten him with a chain the measure of which is seventy hands.
69:33 Indeed, he did not believe in Allah, the Almighty,
69:34 and did not persuade (others) to feed the needy.
69:35 So, he has no friend here today,
69:36 nor any food except that which comes out from wounds when washing,
69:37 which is eaten by none but the sinners.
69:38 I swear by what you see,
69:39 and what you do not see,
69:40 it is surely the speech of a noble Messenger, (that he conveys from Allah).
69:41 and it is not the speech of a poet, (but) little you believe,
69:42 nor is it the speech of a soothsayer, (but) little you heed to the advice.
69:43 It is a revelation from the Lord of the worlds.
69:44 Had he (the prophet) forged some statements in Our name,
69:45 We would have certainly seized him by the right hand,
69:46 and then severed his life-artery,
69:47 and none of you could have saved him from it.
69:48 It is infact a Reminder for the God-fearing.
69:49 And, of course, We know that among you there are deniers.
69:50 And surely, it is a cause of remorse for the disbelievers.
69:51 And it is surely an absolute truth.
69:52 So, pronounce the purity of the name of your magnificent Lord.
