69:1  The sure calamity
69:2  What is the sure calamity
69:3  And what would make you realize what the sure calamity is
69:4  Samood and Ad called the striking calamity a lie
69:5  Then as to Samood, they were destroyed by an excessively severe punishment
69:6  And as to Ad, they were destroyed by a roaring, violent blast
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 of them one remaining
69:9  And Firon and those before him and the overthrown cities continuously committed sins
69:10  And they disobeyed the Messenger of their Lord, so He punished them with a vehement punishment
69:11  Surely We bore you up in the ship 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
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 on that day your Lord's power
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: Lo! read my book
69:20  Surely I knew that I shall meet my account
69:21  So he shall be in a life of pleasure
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 had not known what my account was
69:27  O would that it had made an end (of me)
69:28  My wealth has availed me nothing
69:29  My authority is gone away from me
69:30  Lay hold on him, then put a chain on him
69:31  Then cast him into the burning fire
69:32  Then thrust him into 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 refuse
69:37  Which none but the wrongdoers eat
69:38  But nay! I swear 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 honored 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 cut off his aorta
69:47  And not one of you could have withheld Us from him
69:48  And most surely it is a reminder for those who guard (against evil)
69:49  And most surely We know that some of you are rejecters
69:50  And most surely it is a great grief to the unbelievers
69:51  And most surely it is the true certaint
69:52  Therefore-glorify the name of your Lord, the Great
