The Clear Quran, Dr. Mustafa Khattab rendition of Surah The Reality, The Inevitable(al-Haqqah)
69:1 The Inevitable Hour!
69:2 What is the Inevitable Hour?
69:3 And what will make you realize what the Inevitable Hour is?
69:4 ˹Both˺ Thamûd and ’Ȃd denied the Striking Disaster.
69:5 As for Thamûd, they were destroyed by an overwhelming blast.
69:6 And as for ’Ȃd, they were destroyed by a furious, bitter wind
69:7 which Allah unleashed on them non-stop for seven nights and eight days, so that you would have seen its people lying dead like trunks of uprooted palm trees.
69:8 Do you see any of them left alive?
69:9 Also, Pharaoh and those before him, and ˹the people of˺ the overturned cities ˹of Lot˺ indulged in sin,
69:10 each disobeying their Lord’s messenger, so He seized them with a crushing grip.
69:11 Indeed, when the floodwater had overflowed, We carried you in the floating Ark ˹with Noah˺,
69:12 so that We may make this a reminder to you, and that attentive ears may grasp it.
69:13 At last, when the Trumpet will be blown with one blast,
69:14 and the earth and mountains will be lifted up and crushed with one blow,
69:15 on that Day the Inevitable Event will have come to pass.
69:16 The sky will then be so torn that it will be frail,
69:17 with the angels on its sides. On that Day eight ˹mighty angels˺ will bear the Throne of your Lord above them.
69:18 You will then be presented ˹before Him for judgment˺, and none of your secrets will stay hidden.
69:19 As for those given their records in their right hand, they will cry ˹happily˺, “Here ˹everyone˺! Read my record!
69:20 I surely knew I would face my reckoning.”
69:21 They will be in a life of bliss,
69:22 in an elevated Garden,
69:23 whose fruit will hang within reach.
69:24 ˹They will be told,˺ “Eat and drink joyfully for what you did in the days gone by.”
69:25 And as for those given their record in their left hand, they will cry ˹bitterly˺, “I wish I had not been given my record,
69:26 nor known anything of my reckoning!
69:27 I wish death was the end!
69:28 My wealth has not benefited me!
69:29 My authority has been stripped from me.”
69:30 ˹It will be said,˺ “Seize and shackle them,
69:31 then burn them in Hell,
69:32 then tie them up with chains seventy arms long.
69:33 For they never had faith in Allah, the Greatest,
69:34 nor encouraged the feeding of the poor.
69:35 So this Day they will have no close friend here,
69:36 nor any food except ˹oozing˺ pus,
69:37 which none will eat except the evildoers.”
69:38 Now, I do swear by whatever you see,
69:39 and whatever you cannot see!
69:40 Indeed, this ˹Quran˺ is the recitation of a noble Messenger.
69:41 It is not the prose of a poet ˹as you claim˺, ˹yet˺ you hardly have any faith.
69:42 Nor is it the mumbling of a fortune-teller, ˹yet˺ you are hardly mindful.
69:43 ˹It is˺ a revelation from the Lord of all worlds.
69:44 Had the Messenger made up something in Our Name,
69:45 We would have certainly seized him by his right hand,
69:46 then severed his aorta,
69:47 and none of you could have shielded him ˹from Us˺!
69:48 Indeed, this ˹Quran˺ is a reminder to those mindful ˹of Allah˺.
69:49 And We certainly know that some of you will persist in denial,
69:50 and it will surely be a source of regret for the disbelievers.
69:51 And indeed, this ˹Quran˺ is the absolute truth.
69:52 So glorify the Name of your Lord, the Greatest.
