What will make you understand what the Reality is
Thamood and Aad denied the Catastrophe
As for Thamood, they were annihilated by the Overwhelming
And as for Aad; they were annihilated by a furious, roaring wind
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
Can you see any remnant of them
Then Pharaoh came, and those before him, and the Overturned Cities steeped in sin
But they disobeyed the messenger of their Lord, so He seized them with an overpowering grip
When the waters overflowed, We carried you in the cruising ship
To make it a lesson for you—so that retaining ears may retain it.
Then, when the Trumpet is sounded a single time.
And the earth and the mountains are lifted up, and crushed, with a single crush
On that Day, the Event will come to pass
And the heaven will crack; so on that Day it will be frail
And the angels will be ranged around its borders, while eight will be carrying the Throne of your Lord above them that Day
On that Day you will be exposed, and no secret of yours will remain hidden
As for him who is given his book in his right hand, he will say, 'Here, take my book and read it
I knew I would be held accountable.'
So he will be in pleasant living
Its pickings are within reach
'Eat and drink merrily for what you did in the days gone by.'
But as for him who is given his book in his left hand, he will say, 'I wish I was never given my book
And never knew what my account was
If only it was the end
My money cannot avail me
My power has vanished from me.'
'Take him and shackle him
Then scorch him in the Blaze
Then in a chain which length is seventy cubits tie him up
For he would not believe in God the Great
Nor would he advocate the feeding of the destitute
So he has no friend here today
And no food except scum
Which only the sinners eat.'
Indeed, I swear by what you see
And by what you do not see
It is the speech of a noble messenger
And it is not the speech of a poet—little do you believe
Nor is it the speech of a soothsayer—little do you take heed
It is a revelation from the Lord of the Worlds
Had he falsely attributed some statements to Us
We would have seized him by the right arm
Then slashed his lifeline
And none of you could have restrained Us from him
Surely, it is a message for the righteous
And We know that some of you will reject it
And it is surely a source of grief for the unbelievers
Yet it is the absolute truth
So glorify the name of your Lord, the Magnificent
