What is the true event?
And how do you know what the true event is?
Thamud and ´Ad denied the calamity.
As for Thamud, they were destroyed by their transgression.
And as for ´Ad, they were destroyed by a raging icy wind.
He directed it against them for seven nights and eight days consecutively, then you saw the people thrown to the ground as if they were stumps of cut down palm trees.
So do you see any remnant of them?
And Pharaoh and those before him and the overturned towns produced sinful acts.
So they disobeyed the messenger of their Lord, then He overtook them in a powerful way.
When the water breached its boundaries, We carried you in the ship.
To make it a reminder for you and to be retained by attentive ears.
Then, when the horn will be blown once,
And the earth and the mountains will be lifted and levelled in one go.
On that day the event happens.
And the sky will break up and be fragile that day.
And the angels will be in the vicinity and eight will carry the throne of your Lord above them that day.
That day you will be presented, nothing will be hidden of you.
Then who is given his record in his right hand, he will say: come and read my record.
I thought I would meet my reckoning.
And he will be in a life of contentment.
In an elevated garden.
Its pickings will be close by.
Eat and drink legitimately on account of what you left behind in the days gone by.
And who is given his record in his left hand, he will say: woe to me, if only I wasn´t given my record.
And wouldn´t know my reckoning.
If only this was the end.
My wealth did not help me.
My authority has departed from me.
Take him and shackle him.
Then throw him into hell-fire.
Then lock him into a chain measuring seventy arms´ length.
For he did not believe in Allah, the mighty.
And did not encourage the feeding of the poor.
So he will not have any dear friend here today.
And no food except waste product.
Only the sinners eat it.
But I swear by what you see,
And by what you don´t see,
It is the speech of an honourable messenger,
And it is not the speech of a poet, little do you believe,
Nor the speech of a fortune-teller, little to you reflect,
A revelation from the Lord of all worlds.
And if he made up some sayings against Us,
We would take his right hand,
Then cut his arteries,
And none of you could save him.
And it is a reminder for those who beware (of Allah).
And We know that there are deniers amongst you.
And it is a loss for those who reject (the truth).
And it is the certain truth.
So glorify the name of your mighty Lord.
