Talal A. Itani (new translation) rendition of Surah The Reality, The Inevitable(al-Haqqah)
69:1 The Reality.
69:2 What is the Reality?
69:3 What will make you understand what the Reality is?
69:4 Thamood and Aad denied the Catastrophe.
69:5 As for Thamood, they were annihilated by the Overwhelming.
69:6 And as for Aad; they were annihilated by a furious, roaring wind.
69:7 He unleashed it upon them for seven nights and eight days, in succession. You could see the people tossed around, as though they were stumps of hollow palm-trees.
69:8 Can you see any remnant of them?
69:9 Then Pharaoh came, and those before him, and the Overturned Cities steeped in sin.
69:10 But they disobeyed the messenger of their Lord, so He seized them with an overpowering grip.
69:11 When the waters overflowed, We carried you in the cruising ship.
69:12 To make it a lesson for you—so that retaining ears may retain it.
69:13 Then, when the Trumpet is sounded a single time.
69:14 And the earth and the mountains are lifted up, and crushed, with a single crush.
69:15 On that Day, the Event will come to pass.
69:16 And the heaven will crack; so on that Day it will be frail.
69:17 And the angels will be ranged around its borders, while eight will be carrying the Throne of your Lord above them that Day.
69:18 On that Day you will be exposed, and no secret of yours will remain hidden.
69:19 As for him who is given his book in his right hand, he will say, 'Here, take my book and read it.
69:20 I knew I would be held accountable.'
69:21 So he will be in pleasant living.
69:22 In a lofty Garden.
69:23 Its pickings are within reach.
69:24 'Eat and drink merrily for what you did in the days gone by.'
69:25 But as for him who is given his book in his left hand, he will say, 'I wish I was never given my book.
69:26 And never knew what my account was.
69:27 If only it was the end.
69:28 My money cannot avail me.
69:29 My power has vanished from me.'
69:30 'Take him and shackle him.
69:31 Then scorch him in the Blaze.
69:32 Then in a chain which length is seventy cubits tie him up.
69:33 For he would not believe in God the Great.
69:34 Nor would he advocate the feeding of the destitute.
69:35 So he has no friend here today.
69:36 And no food except scum.
69:37 Which only the sinners eat.'
69:38 Indeed, I swear by what you see.
69:39 And by what you do not see.
69:40 It is the speech of a noble messenger.
69:41 And it is not the speech of a poet—little do you believe.
69:42 Nor is it the speech of a soothsayer—little do you take heed.
69:43 It is a revelation from the Lord of the Worlds.
69:44 Had he falsely attributed some statements to Us.
69:45 We would have seized him by the right arm.
69:46 Then slashed his lifeline.
69:47 And none of you could have restrained Us from him.
69:48 Surely, it is a message for the righteous.
69:49 And We know that some of you will reject it.
69:50 And it is surely a source of grief for the unbelievers.
69:51 Yet it is the absolute truth.
69:52 So glorify the name of your Lord, the Magnificent.
