69:1  The Sure Reality! (The Word and Retribution of Allah.
69:2  What is the Sure Reality
69:3  And what will make you realize what the Sure Reality is
69:4  The Samood (Thamud) and the ‘Ad people (treated) the stunning calamity as false
69:5  But the Samood (Thamud)— They were destroyed by a terrible storm of thunder and lightning
69:6  And the ‘Ad— They were destroyed by a furious wind extremely fierce
69:7  Which (wind) He (Allah) made it rage against them for seven nights and eight days continuously so that you could see all the people lying on their faces in its (path), as if they had been roots of hollow palm-trees tumbled down
69:8  Then do you see any of them left (still) living
69:9  And Firon (Pharaoh), and those before him and the cities overthrown, committed the same habitual sin
69:10  And (each) disobeyed the messenger of their Lord: So He punished them with a severe penalty
69:11  Verily, when the water (of Nuh's Flood) overflowed beyond its limits, We carried you (mankind) in the floating Ark
69:12  That We might make it a Message for you, that (your) ears (may listen) and retain (its extraordinary lessons) in memor
69:13  Then, when the blast is sounded on the Trumpet once
69:14  And the earth and its mountains shall be dislodged from their places and are crushed to powder at one stroke—
69:15  On that Day shall the Event (and Reality) become true
69:16  And the sky will be split apart, for that Day will be flimsy and torn apart
69:17  And the angels will be on its (the sky) sides, and on that Day eight (angels) will bear the Throne of your Lord above them
69:18  That Day shall you be brought to Judgment: Not (even) one act of yours that you hide will be hidden
69:19  Then he who will be given his record in his right hand will say: "Here! Read my record
69:20  "Surely, I did really know that my account would (One Day) reach me!"
69:21  So, he will be in a life of (ultimate) joy
69:22  In a Garden placed high
69:23  The fruits in bunches there, will be low and near at hand
69:24  (The greeting will be:) "You eat and drink, with full satisfaction; Because of the good that you sent before you, in the days that are gone!"
69:25  And he who will be given his record in his left hand, will say: "I wish my record was not been given to me
69:26  "And that I had never known what my account (contained)
69:27  "Would that (death) had made an end of me
69:28  "My wealth has been of no profit to me
69:29  "My power has departed from me!"..
69:30  (The command will be:) "Seize him and bind (shackle) him
69:31  "And throw him in the blazing Fire
69:32  "Further, make him march in a chain, whose length is seventy cubits (99-128 ft)
69:33  "He was one, who would not believe in Allah, the Most Great (Al-Azeem)
69:34  "And would not encourage the feeding of those in need
69:35  "So, no friend does he have here this Day
69:36  "Nor does he have any food (here) except the corruption from the washing of wound
69:37  "Which none do eat except those who have sinned."
69:38  So, I swear by what you se
69:39  And what you see not
69:40  That this is truly the word of an honorable Messenger (of Allah, the Prophet Muhammad)
69:41  It is not the word of a poet: Little it is you believe
69:42  Nor is it the word of a soothsayer (or a fortune teller): Little warning (and advice) it is, that you receive
69:43  (This is) a Message sent down from the Lord of the Worlds (Rab-ul-'Ala'meen)
69:44  And if he (the Messenger) were to invent any saying in Our Name
69:45  We should certainly have seized him by his right hand
69:46  And then We certainly would have cut off the artery of his hear
69:47  Nor could any of you withhold him (from Our Anger)
69:48  But truly this is a Reminder (the Quran) for those who fear Allah
69:49  And We certainly, know that there are among you those who reject (it)
69:50  But truly, it (the Reminder, this Quran) is a cause of sorrow for the unbelievers
69:51  And verily, it (the Quran) is the Truth of total certainty
69:52  So glorify the Name of your Lord the Most Great (Rab-ul-Azeem)
