69:2  What is the concrete reality
69:3  What do you comprehend by the concrete reality
69:4  The Thamud and 'Ad denied the consequential calamity
69:5  So destroyed were the Thamud by a storm of thunder and lightning
69:6  And the 'Ad were destroyed by the furious cold blast of roaring win
69:7  Which He sent to assail them for seven nights and eight days running. You should have seen the people prostrate like the decayed trunks of date-palm trees
69:8  Do you see any trace of them
69:9  Then came the Pharaoh, and those before him whose habitations were overthrown while they were committing crimes
69:10  When they disobeyed the apostle of their Lord He seized them with an overwhelming punishment
69:11  When the water rose in flood, We bore you in the ark
69:12  In order to make it a warning for you, and that the ear retentive may preserve it
69:13  When the single blast is sounded on the trumpet
69:14  And the earth and mountains heaved and crushed to powder with one levelling blow
69:15  On that Day will come what is to come
69:16  The sky will cleave asunder on that day and fall to pieces
69:17  On its fringes will be angels, eight of them, bearing their Lord's throne aloft
69:18  You will then be set before Him, and not one of you will remain unexposed
69:19  He who is given his ledger in his right hand, will say: "Here, read my ledger
69:20  I was certain I'll be given my account."
69:21  So he shall have an agreeable lif
69:22  In high empyrea
69:23  With fruits hanging low within reach
69:24  (And told:) "Eat and drink to your fill as reward for (good) deeds you had done in days of yore."
69:25  But whosoever gets his ledger in his left hand, will say: "Would that I were never given my ledger
69:26  And not known my account
69:27  I wish death had put an end to me
69:28  Of no use was even my wealth
69:29  Vanished has my power from me."
69:30  "Seize him and manacle him
69:31  Then cast him to be burnt in Hell
69:32  And string him to a chain seventy cubits long
69:33  He did not believe in God the supreme
69:34  Nor urged others to feed the poor
69:35  That is why he has no friend today
69:36  Nor food other than suppuration (filth
69:37  Which none but the hellish eat."
69:38  So, I call to witness what you se
69:39  And what you do not see
69:40  That this is indeed the word of the noble Messenger
69:41  And not the word of a poet. How little is it that you believe
69:42  Nor is it the word of a soothsayer. Little is it that you reflect
69:43  It has been sent down by the Lord of all the worlds
69:44  Had he attributed falsely any words to Us
69:45  We would have seized him by his right hand
69:46  Then cut off his aorta
69:47  And not one of you would have been able to stop (Us)
69:48  It is really a reminder for those who fear God and follow the straight path
69:49  We certainly know that some among you do deny it
69:50  It is surely the nemesis of unbelievers
69:51  And He, He is indeed the ultimate Reality
69:52  So glorify your Lord, the most supreme
