Mohammad Shafi rendition of Surah The Reality, The Inevitable(al-Haqqah)
69:1 The Inevitable!
69:2 What is the Inevitable?
69:3 And what do you know what the Inevitable is?
69:4 The Thamood and the AAad denied possibility of the Striking Calamity happening.
69:5 Then as for Thamood, they were destroyed by an overpowering blast!h
69:6 And as for the AAad, they were destroyed by a furious, violent storm.
69:7 HE let it [storm] loose upon them for seven nights and eight days in succession. You would have seen the people there then lying prostrate, as though they were uprooted trunks of palm trees.
69:8 Do you now see any trace of them?
69:9 And Pharaoh and those before him and the people of the overturned habitations [the people of Lot] committed the same sin.
69:10 And they followed not the Messenger of their Lord! So He seized them severely.
69:11 When the water rose to great heights indeed, We bore you upon a floating vessel.h
69:12 So as to make it for you an event to remember, and so that an attentive ear commits it to memory.
69:13 So when the Trumpet is blown with a single blow
69:14 And the earth and the mountains are lifted and then crushed at one stroke,
69:15 On that Day shall the Event [the Hereafter, the Inevitable referred to in Verse above] come to pass;
69:16 And the sky will be rent asunder, so it becomes loose that Day,
69:17 And the angels will be at its edges. And eight of them will carry the Throne of your Lord that Day.
69:18 That Day you shall be presented (before Allah) and no secret of yours shall remain hidden.
69:19 He then, whose record will be given to him in his right hand, will say, "Here, read this record of mine!"
69:20 "I did indeed expect that I would come face to face with my record."
69:21 He shall then be living a life of bliss
69:22 In a lofty Garden
69:23 Clusters of its fruits will be within reach.
69:24 "Eat and drink to your satisfaction on account of what you did in the days gone by."
69:25 And he, whose Record will be given to him in his left hand, will say, "Would that I had never been given my Record!"
69:26 "And had I not come to know my account!"
69:27 "Oh! Would that [death in the worldly life] be the end of me!"
69:28 "My wealth has been of no use to me!"
69:29 "My authority is gone from me!"
69:30 [Divine Order for him whose record is given in his left hand:] Seize him and shackle him!
69:31 Then burn him in the Blazing Fire!
69:32 Then tie him to a chain, seventy cubits long!
69:33 He would not believe in Allah, the Almighty!
69:34 And he would feel no urge to feed the poor.
69:35 And so no friend for him here today!
69:36 And no food except from discharged wastes.
69:37 Eat it not but the sinners.
69:38 But no! I swear by what you see
69:39 And by what you do not see
69:40 This [the Qur'aan] certainly indeed is a noble Messenger's [Angel's] Word.
69:41 And not that of a poet! Little do you believe!
69:42 Nor is it the word of a soothsayer! Little do you reflect!
69:43 It is a reveation from the Lord of the Universe.
69:44 And had he [the Prophet] ascribed to Us some of his own sayings,
69:45 We would surely have seized from him by the right hand,
69:46 And then severed from him the life vein.
69:47 And none of you could wit old Us from doing this to him.
69:48 And, indeed, it [the Qur'aan] is a divine Counsel for those who fear Allah.
69:49 And We do indeed know that some among you deny this.
69:50 And, indeed, it [the Qur'aan] is certainly a cause of regret for those who suppress the Truth.
69:51 And certainly indeed it [the Qur'aan] is the absolute Truth!
69:52 Chant, then, the name of your Lord, the Almighty!
