69:1  The Reality
69:2  What is the Reality
69:3  What will make you understand what the Reality is
69:4  Thamood and Aad denied the Catastrophe
69:5  As for Thamood, they were annihilated by the Overwhelming
69:6  And as for Aad; they were annihilated by a furious, roaring wind
69:7  He unleashed it upon them for seven nights and eight days, in succession. You could see the people tossed around, as though they were stumps of hollow palm-trees
69:8  Can you see any remnant of them
69:9  Then Pharaoh came, and those before him, and the Overturned Cities steeped in sin
69:10  But they disobeyed the messenger of their Lord, so He seized them with an overpowering grip
69:11  When the waters overflowed, We carried you in the cruising ship
69:12  To make it a lesson for you—so that retaining ears may retain it.
69:13  Then, when the Trumpet is sounded a single time.
69:14  And the earth and the mountains are lifted up, and crushed, with a single crush
69:15  On that Day, the Event will come to pass
69:16  And the heaven will crack; so on that Day it will be frail
69:17  And the angels will be ranged around its borders, while eight will be carrying the Throne of your Lord above them that Day
69:18  On that Day you will be exposed, and no secret of yours will remain hidden
69:19  As for him who is given his book in his right hand, he will say, 'Here, take my book and read it
69:20  I knew I would be held accountable.'
69:21  So he will be in pleasant living
69:22  In a lofty Garden
69:23  Its pickings are within reach
69:24  'Eat and drink merrily for what you did in the days gone by.'
69:25  But as for him who is given his book in his left hand, he will say, 'I wish I was never given my book
69:26  And never knew what my account was
69:27  If only it was the end
69:28  My money cannot avail me
69:29  My power has vanished from me.'
69:30  'Take him and shackle him
69:31  Then scorch him in the Blaze
69:32  Then in a chain which length is seventy cubits tie him up
69:33  For he would not believe in God the Great
69:34  Nor would he advocate the feeding of the destitute
69:35  So he has no friend here today
69:36  And no food except scum
69:37  Which only the sinners eat.'
69:38  Indeed, I swear by what you see
69:39  And by what you do not see
69:40  It is the speech of a noble messenger
69:41  And it is not the speech of a poet—little do you believe
69:42  Nor is it the speech of a soothsayer—little do you take heed
69:43  It is a revelation from the Lord of the Worlds
69:44  Had he falsely attributed some statements to Us
69:45  We would have seized him by the right arm
69:46  Then slashed his lifeline
69:47  And none of you could have restrained Us from him
69:48  Surely, it is a message for the righteous
69:49  And We know that some of you will reject it
69:50  And it is surely a source of grief for the unbelievers
69:51  Yet it is the absolute truth
69:52  So glorify the name of your Lord, the Magnificent
