Al-muntakhab fi tafsir al-Qur'an al-Karim rendition of Surah The Reality, The Inevitable(al-Haqqah)
69:1 The absolute reality
69:2 What a reality
69:3 You just do not know what the Day of Reality is like
69:4 The people of Thamud -the Thamudites- and those of 'Ad - the 'Adites denied that Day of the stunning roar concurrent with the collision of the celestial bodies
69:5 The Thamudites were destroyed by an overwhelming thunderous convulsion of the earth's surface produced by a natural force within the earth's crust
69:6 And the 'Adites were destroyed by a cold terrifying destructive hurricane, merciless, pitiless and unrelenting
69:7 Which hurricane was calculated and directed against them for seven successive nights and eight successive days; you could see their dwellings collapsing making fresh victims. They lay prostrate as if they were hollow trunks of palm trees tumbled down by an unruly wind
69:8 And now do you see any of them who had outlasted or remained a survivor
69:9 And there were Pharaoh and those before him and those of the corrupt cities who wickedly committed the unprecedented sin; all of whom did evil in exchange for good
69:10 They disobeyed the Messenger of Allah their Creator, so He stunned them and overtook them by a condign punishment making them unable to hold their own
69:11 When the water gained advantage on the kingdom of the shore and inundated the land, We carried you in the Ark which We kept afloat
69:12 An incident which was a signal instance serving as a deterrent in order that you preserve its memory and the bowing ear absorbs it
69:13 When the trumpet is blown once or sounded and all those in heaven and on earth are dumbfounde
69:14 And the earth and the mountains are given a lift and in one crash they are pounded, ending with the wrecks of matter and the crush of the Worlds
69:15 There and then has the Hour of Truth come to pass, and has been actuated
69:16 And the heavens have been parted asunder, and with frailty they stand shaky and agitated
69:17 And the angels now standing in attention, high will eight of them carry your Creator's throne
69:18 There and then shall all of you have audience of Allah for judgment, and not a single action of your worldly deeds will be hidden or unknown
69:19 Then he who is given his book, bearing his record, in his right hand will joyfully say to those he meets: "there, you may read my book lending radiance of the divine glory"
69:20 "I was convinced", he adds, "of the truth of The Day of Judgement when I would be requited the like for the like"
69:21 Such persons whose deeds were imprinted with wisdom and piety shall live in comfort and delight
69:22 In Gardens exalted and blissful, spectacular and most pleasing to the sight
69:23 With fruits on branches springing up and down to be always within easy reach and always in their sight
69:24 Welcomed therein, they will be told: "Eat and drink and enjoy all that affords pleasure, in return for the works of equity you had done in the days bygone"
69:25 But he whose book, bearing his record, is given in his left hand will pitifully say: "I wish I had suffered eternal death then I would never have been given that book"
69:26 "Nor would I have been asked to answer for conduct not knowing what language shall my countenance speak nor what shall it look like"
69:27 "I wish my death were the end and the final catastrophe."
69:28 "What good did my wealth do me?"
69:29 "My power, my influence, and my authority have vanished and my realm has collapsed!"
69:30 Seize him, bind him and make fast with a tie
69:31 Then throw him in the fire to be tortured but not to die
69:32 And fix him upon a chain seventy cubits ( or forearms ) long
69:33 Never did he accept, or recognize Allah, the Almighty
69:34 Nor did he encourage ministering to the necessities and demands of the indigent
69:35 He will not find here any who would afford him help or deliver him from Allah's retributory punishment
69:36 Nor will he feed except upon the bloody rotten discharges
69:37 Which no one consumes but the wicked who are destined to make their abode in Hell
69:38 I swear by all that you can see
69:39 And by all that you cannot see
69:40 That the words uttered are sacred words expressed by an honourable Messenger -the Spirit or the Messenger- held in high esteem
69:41 And not a gifted utterance championed by a poet that you could hardly believe
69:42 Nor is it a prophecy foretold by a foreteller that you do not, reflect upon with close attention
69:43 It -the utterance- is that of sacred words revealed by Allah, the Creator of the worlds, past present and those to come
69:44 And if he -the Messenger- had uttered error against Us and his heart worked iniquity
69:45 We. would have smitten him by the right
69:46 And We would have broken the continuity of blood flow in his major artery close to his heart besides a grievous woeful future plight
69:47 And no one among~ you could defend him from Us
69:48 But it -the utterance- is a Revelation to remind those who entertain the profound reverence dutiful to Allah
69:49 We do know that among you people are some who refuse to admit the truth of the Quran, albeit it is convincing, and quite clear
69:50 And that it has distressed the minds of those who refuse to acknowledge Allah and are satisfied with the age of discord
69:51 But it is the Absolute Truth which together with reality does accord
69:52 And so, praise the attributes and advance the glory of the Name of Allah, your Creator
