69:1  The Haqqah
69:2  What is the Haqqah
69:3  And what will make you understand what the Haqqah is
69:4  The Thamud and the ‘Ad people denied the striking calamity
69:5  As for Thamud, they were destroyed by the Thunderbolt
69:6  As for 'Ad they were destroyed by a furious windstor
69:7  - which He let loose on them for seven nights and eight successive days. Had you been there, you would have seen them lying prostrate as though they were hollow trunks of the palm-trees
69:8  Now, do you see any of them alive
69:9  Pharaoh and those before him, and the inhabitants of the overthrown cities also committed similar sin
69:10  and disobeyed the Messengers of their Lord, so He gripped them with a tight grip
69:11  Just consider the great flood of Noah, when the water rose high, We carried you (O mankind) in the floating Ark
69:12  that We may make that event a warning for you so that all attentive ears may retain its memory
69:13  As for the dooms- day, it shall come, when the Trumpet will be blown with a single blas
69:14  and the earth with all its mountains will be lifted up and crushed into pieces with a single strok
69:15  - On that day the Great Event will come to pass
69:16  heaven shall split asunder, and the day shall seem flimsy
69:17  The angels will stand all around and eight of them will be carrying the Throne of your Lord above them
69:18  That shall be the day when you will be brought before your Lord, and none of your secrets shall remain hidden
69:19  Then he, who will be given his Book of Deeds in his right hand, will say: "Here it is, read my Book of deeds!"
69:20  I knew that I would certainly face my reckoning."
69:21  So he will have a life of pleasure
69:22  in a lofty garden
69:23  with clusters of fruit within his reach
69:24  We shall say to him: "Eat and drink to your heart's content; this is a reward for what you did in the days gone by."
69:25  While he, who will be given his Book of Deeds in his left hand, will say: "Woe to me, would that I had not been given my Book of Deed
69:26  nor known what my account was
69:27  Would that my death had ended all
69:28  My wealth had availed me nothing
69:29  and my authority has gone away from me."
69:30  We shall say: "Seize him and put a chain around his neck
69:31  then cast him in the blazing fire
69:32  then fasten him with a chain seventy cubits long
69:33  For he did not believe in Allah, the Most High
69:34  nor did he care to feed the poor
69:35  Today he neither has a true friend here
69:36  nor any food except the pus from the washing of wounds
69:37  which none but the wrongdoers eat."
69:38  Nay! I swear by all that you can see
69:39  and all that you cannot see
69:40  that this is the word of a noble Messenger
69:41  It is not the word of a poet - little is it that you believe
69:42  - nor is it the word of a soothsayer - little admonition is that you take
69:43  This is a revelation from the Lord of the worlds
69:44  Had he (Muhammad) invented false statements concerning Us
69:45  We would certainly have seized him by his right han
69:46  then cut off his main artery
69:47  and none of you could prevent it
69:48  Surely this Qur’an is a reminder to the Godfearing
69:49  We know that there are some among you who deny it
69:50  and for such disbelievers it is indeed a cause of despair
69:51  Yet surely it is the absolute truth
69:52  So glorify the name of your Lord, the Most High
