Dr. Mohammad Tahir-ul-Qadri rendition of Surah The Reality, The Inevitable(al-Haqqah)
69:1 The surely Inevitable Hour!
69:2 What is the surely Inevitable Hour?
69:3 And what has made you alert what (calamity) surely is the Inevitable Hour?
69:4 Thamud and ‘Ad rejected the (calamity of a) Shattering Gravitational Collision (of all the existent cosmic bodies).
69:5 So, as for the people of Thamud, they were destroyed by the extremely violent, Deafening Blast.
69:6 And as for the people of ‘Ad, they (too) were destroyed by a violently cold, roaring gale.
69:7 Allah made that (gale) seize them for consecutive seven nights and eight days. So, you could see them lying dead (during that time as if) they were hollow roots of the uprooted palm trees.
69:8 So do you see any of them surviving?
69:9 And Pharaoh and those before him and (the dwellers of) the overthrown towns (of the community of Lut [Lot]) committed grave sins.
69:10 So they (also) disobeyed the Messenger of their Lord. And Allah seized them with a mighty seizure.
69:11 Indeed, when the water (of the Deluge) overflowed the limit, We carried you in the floating Ark,
69:12 So that We make this (episode a reminding) lesson of warning for you and that the retentive ears may retain it.
69:13 Then when the Trumpet will be blown once,
69:14 And the earth and mountains will be removed (from their places), they will then be crushed to sand particles in a single crash.
69:15 Then that will be the Hour when the surely Inevitable (calamity) will occur.
69:16 And (all) the heavenly bodies will split apart and this universe will come to comprise (black) holes (by means of a force which coordinates and keeps the system going).*
69:17 And the angels will be standing on its edges and above them that Day, and eight (angels or parties of angels) will be carrying the Throne of your Lord.
69:18 That Day you will be made to appear (for reckoning). Nothing of your secrets will remain hidden.
69:19 So the one who will be given his record in the right hand will say (pleased): ‘Come and read my record.
69:20 I firmly believed that I would find my account (easy).’
69:21 So he will live a pleasant life,
69:22 In an elevated lofty Paradise,
69:23 The clusters of its fruits hanging low (due to abundance).
69:24 (It will be said to them:) ‘Eat and drink rejoicing, in recompense of (your deeds) that you had sent forward during the days of your past (life).’
69:25 And as for him who will be given his record in his left hand, he will say: ‘Would that I had not been given my record!
69:26 And would that I had not known about my account!
69:27 Alas! Would that (death) had settled my affair once and for all!
69:28 Today my wealth has not been able to keep (the torment) away from me even a little.
69:29 My power and domain have (also) gone from me.’
69:30 (It will be commanded:) ‘Seize him and put him in neck-fetter.
69:31 Then cast him into Hell.
69:32 Then bind him tightly in a seventy yard long chain.
69:33 Verily, he did not believe in Allah, the Lord of Majesty.
69:34 Nor did he urge the feeding of the poor.
69:35 So Today he does not have any warm friend.
69:36 Nor has he anything to eat except filthy pus,
69:37 That no one will eat except the sinners.’
69:38 So I swear by the things that you see,
69:39 And by those things that you do not see.
69:40 Assuredly, this (Qur’an) is the (God-sent) commandment of the Exalted and Glorious Messenger ([blessings and peace be upon him] which he expounds as a Messenger and as a Vicegerent).
69:41 And it is not the poetry of a poet (composed with literary expertise). You have but little faith.
69:42 Nor is it the word of a fortune-teller (designed by skilful guesswork). You take but little advice.
69:43 (This) is sent down by the Lord of all the worlds.
69:44 And had he ascribed to Us even a (single) fabricated thing,
69:45 We would have seized him with full force and might,
69:46 Then certainly We would have cut his life artery,
69:47 Then no one of you could have held (Us) back from it.
69:48 So no doubt this (Qur’an) is direction and guidance for the Godfearing.
69:49 And surely, We know that some of you are the beliers (of this open truth).
69:50 And surely, this is (a cause of) bitter regret for the disbelievers.
69:51 And undeniably, it is the truth of Absolute Certitude.
69:52 So, (O Esteemed Beloved,) glorify your Lord, Most Magnificent, with persistence.
