69:1  The Imminent Happening
69:2  What is the Imminent Happening
69:3  And what can let you know what the Imminent happening is
69:4  Thamud and ‘Ad had denied (the happening of) the Shocking Event (the Day of Judgment)
69:5  As for Thamud, they were destroyed by that (dreadful cry), which exceeded all limits
69:6  And as for ‘Ad, they were destroyed by a violent windstor
69:7  that He imposed on them for seven nights and eight consecutive days; so you could see them thrown on the ground, as if they were trunks of hollow palm-trees
69:8  Now, do you see any remnant of them
69:9  And Fir‘aun (Pharaoh) and those before him and the overthrown towns came up with evil
69:10  and they disobeyed the messenger of their Lord, so He seized them with an extremely severe seizure
69:11  When the water overflowed (in the Deluge of NuH), We let you (O mankind,) board the floating ship
69:12  so that We make it a reminder for you, and so that a preserving ear (that hears their story) may preserve it
69:13  Then, once the Trumpet will be blown for the first time
69:14  and the earth and the mountains will be lifted and crushed into pieces with a single blow
69:15  then on that Day the Happening will happen
69:16  and the sky will burst apart, while it will have become frail on that day
69:17  And the angels will be on its borders. And on that Day, the Throne of your Lord will be carried above them by eight (angels)
69:18  On that day, you will be brought forward in a way that no secret of yours will remain secret
69:19  Now, as for him who is given his book in his right hand, he will say (to his colleagues), .Come here, read my book
69:20  I was sure that I would encounter my reckoning
69:21  So he will be in a well-pleasing lif
69:22  in a lofty garden
69:23  the fruits of which will be close at hand
69:24  (It will be said to such people,) .Eat and drink with pleasure, as a reward for what you did in advance during past days
69:25  As for him who will be given his book in his left hand, he will say, . Oh, would that I had not been given my book
69:26  and I had never known what my account is
69:27  Oh, would that it (death) had been the end of the matter
69:28  My wealth has not been of any use to me
69:29  My power has gone from me for good
69:30  (Then it will be said to angels,) .Seize him, then put a collar around his neck
69:31  and then, let him burn in the blazing fire
69:32  Thereafter, fasten him with a chain the measure of which is seventy hands
69:33  Indeed, he did not believe in Allah, the Almighty
69:34  and did not persuade (others) to feed the needy
69:35  So, he has no friend here today
69:36  nor any food except that which comes out from wounds when washing
69:37  which is eaten by none but the sinners
69:38  I swear by what you see
69:39  and what you do not see
69:40  it is surely the speech of a noble Messenger, (that he conveys from Allah)
69:41  and it is not the speech of a poet, (but) little you believe
69:42  nor is it the speech of a soothsayer, (but) little you heed to the advice
69:43  It is a revelation from the Lord of the worlds
69:44  Had he (the prophet) forged some statements in Our name
69:45  We would have certainly seized him by the right hand
69:46  and then severed his life-artery
69:47  and none of you could have saved him from it
69:48  It is infact a Reminder for the God-fearing
69:49  And, of course, We know that among you there are deniers
69:50  And surely, it is a cause of remorse for the disbelievers
69:51  And it is surely an absolute truth
69:52  So, pronounce the purity of the name of your magnificent Lord
