Abdel Haleem rendition of Surah The Reality, The Inevitable(al-Haqqah)
69:1 The Inevitable Hour!
69:2 What is the Inevitable Hour?
69:3 What will explain to you what the Inevitable Hour is?
69:4 The people of Thamud and 'Ad denied that the crashing blowwould come:
69:5 Thamud was destroyed by a deafening blast;
69:6 Ad was destroyed by a furious wind
69:7 that God let loose against them for seven consecutive nights, eight consecutive days, so that you could have seen its people lying dead like hollow palm-trunks.
69:8 Can you see any trace of them now?
69:9 Pharaoh, too, and those before him, and the ruined cities: these people committed grave sins
69:10 and disobeyed the messenger of their Lord, so He seized them with an ever-tightening grip.
69:11 But when the Flood rose high, We saved you in the floating ship,
69:12 making that event a reminder for you: attentive ears may take heed.
69:13 When the Trumpet is sounded a single time,
69:14 when the earth and its mountains are raised high and then crushed with a single blow,
69:15 on that Day the Great Event will come to pass.
69:16 The sky will be torn apart on that Day, it will be so frail.
69:17 The angels will be on all sides of it and, on that Day, eight of them will bear the throne of your Lord above them.
69:18 On that Day you will be brought to judgement and none of your secrets will remain hidden.
69:19 Anyone who is given his Record in his right hand will say, ‘Here is my Record, read it.
69:20 I knew I would meet my Reckoning,’
69:21 and so he will have a pleasant life
69:22 in a lofty Garden,
69:23 with clustered fruit within his reach.
69:24 It will be said, ‘Eat and drink to your heart’s content as a reward for what you have done in days gone by.’
69:25 But anyone who is given his Record in his left hand will say, ‘If only I had never been given any Record
69:26 and knew nothing of my Reckoning.
69:27 How I wish death had been the end of me.
69:28 My wealth has been no use to me,
69:29 and my power has vanished.’
69:30 ‘Take him, put a collar on him,
69:31 lead him to burn in the blazing Fire,
69:32 and [bind him] in a chain seventy metres long:
69:33 he would not believe in Almighty God,
69:34 he never encouraged feeding the hungry,
69:35 so today he has no real friend here,
69:36 and the only food he has is the filth
69:37 that only sinners eat.’
69:38 So I swear by what you can see
69:39 and by what you cannot see:
69:40 this [Quran] is the speech of an honoured messenger,
69:41 not the words of a poet- how little you believe!-
69:42 nor the words of a soothsayer- how little you reflect!
69:43 This [Quran] is a message sent down from the Lord of the Worlds:
69:44 if [the Prophet] had attributed some fabrication to Us,
69:45 We would certainly have seized his right hand
69:46 and cut off his lifeblood,
69:47 and none of you could have defended him.
69:48 This [Quran] is a reminder for those who are aware of God.
69:49 We know that some of you consider it to be lies-
69:50 this will be a source of bitter regret for the disbelievers-
69:51 but it is in fact the certain Truth.
69:52 So [Prophet] glorify the name of your Lord, the Almighty.
