Safi Kaskas rendition of Surah The Reality, The Inevitable(al-Haqqah)
---
69:1 The Hour of Truth!
69:2 What is the Hour of Truth?
69:3 And how would you know what is the Hour of Truth?
69:4 The people of Thamud and 'Aad denied [that there would be a] sudden calamity.
69:5 So as for Thamud, they were destroyed by the overpowering blast.
69:6 And as for Aad, they were destroyed by a furious, roaring wind
69:7 which He unleashed against them for seven nights and eight days, nonstop. You could have seen its people lying dead as if they were hollow palm tree trunks.
69:8 Do you see anything left of them?
69:9 Then came Pharaoh and those before him, and the destroyed towns that indulged in sin.
69:10 They disobeyed their Lord's Messenger, so He seized them with an overpowering grip.
69:11 When the water overflowed, We carried your ancestors in the sailing ship
69:12 To make it a lesson for you to remember, so listening ears may recall it.
69:13 Then when the Horn is blown with a single blast,
69:14 and the earth and the mountains are lifted up and crushed with one blow,
69:15 on that Day, the Hour of Truth will occur.
69:16 The heaven will split open on that Day, since it will be so frail.
69:17 And the angels will be round its edges. On that Day, eight of them will bear your Lord's Throne of His majesty above them.
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 record in his right hand, he will say, "Here, take my record and read it,
69:20 I expected that I would be held accountable."
69:21 So, he will have a pleasant life
69:22 in an elevated Garden,
69:23 its pickings are within easy reach.
69:24 "Eat and drink merrily for what you have done in days gone by."
69:25 As for him who is given his record in his left hand, he will say, "I wish I was never given my record
69:26 and never knew what my account was.
69:27 If only death had really been the end.
69:28 My wealth has been of no use to me
69:29 and my power has vanished."
69:30 [God will say], "Seize him and shackle him.
69:31 Then drive him into Hell.
69:32 Then tie him with a chain whose length is seventy cubits."
69:33 For he would not believe in God, the Magnificent,
69:34 nor would he encourage feeding of the poor.
69:35 So he has no friend here this Day,
69:36 nor any food except scum,
69:37 that only sinners eat.
69:38 So I swear by what you see
69:39 and what you do not see
69:40 that this is the word of a noble Messenger.
69:41 And It is not the word of a poet; how little you believe,
69:42 nor the word of a soothsayer; how little you remember,
69:43 The gradual revelations of the Book, is from the Lord of the worlds.
69:44 Had he [the Messenger] falsely attributed some statements to Us,
69:45 We would have seized him by the right arm.
69:46 Then We would have slashed his lifeline,
69:47 and none of you could have protected him.
69:48 It [The Qur'an] is a reminder for the those who are mindful of God.
69:49 And We know that some of you will deny it.
69:50 It is a cause of great distress to the unbelievers.
69:51 And it is the Truth of certainty.
69:52 Exalt, then, the limitless glory of your Lord's magnificent name.
