69:1  The sure reality
69:2  What is the sure reality
69:3  And what will cause you to realize what the sure reality is
69:4  The Thamud and the ‘Ad people branded as false the stunning calamity
69:5  But the Thamud, they were caused to perish, by a terrible storm
69:6  And the ‘Ad, they were caused to perish by a furious wind, extremely violent
69:7  He made it rage against them seven nights and eight days in succession. So that you could see the people lying prostrate in its path, as if they had been roots of hollow palm trees tumbled down
69:8  Do you see then any of them left surviving
69:9  And Pharaoh, and those before him, and the cities overthrown, committed habitual, harmful deeds
69:10  And they did not follow the messenger of their Lord, so He punished them with a sufficient penalty
69:11  We, when the water overflowed beyond its limits, carried you in the Ark
69:12  That We might make it a message for you, and that ears which hear the tale retain it to memory, and bear its lessons in mind
69:13  Then when a single trumpet is blown
69:14  And the earth and its mountains are moved, and they are crushed to powder with a single pound
69:15  On that day will the Event come to pass
69:16  And the universe will be rent asunder, for it will be flimsy that day
69:17  And the angels will be on its sides, and eight will that day, bear the throne of your Lord above them
69:18  That day you will be brought to Judgment. Not an act of yours that you hide will be hidden
69:19  Then he, who will be given his record in his right hand will say, “Ah here, read my record
69:20  “I indeed understood that my account would reach me.
69:21  And he will be in a life of bliss
69:22  In a garden on high
69:23  Fruits hanging low and near
69:24  “Eat and drink with full satisfaction, because of that which you sent before you, in days gone by.
69:25  And he who will be given his record in his left hand will say, “I wish that my record had not been given to me
69:26  “And that I had never realized how my account stood
69:27  “I wish that death had been the end of me
69:28  “Of no profit to me is my wealth
69:29  “My power has vanished from me.
69:30  Then it will be said, “Seize him and bind him
69:31  “And burn him in the blazing fire
69:32  “Further, make him march in a chain-gang, with a length of seventy cubits
69:33  “This was he who would not believe in God, Most High
69:34  “And would not encourage the feeding of the indigent
69:35  “So no friend has he here this day
69:36  “Nor has he any food, except of what remains from the washing of wounds
69:37  “Which none eat but the wrong-doers.
69:38  So I call to witness what you see
69:39  And what you see not
69:40  That this is indeed the word of an honored messenger
69:41  It is not the word of a poet. Little is it you believe
69:42  Nor is it the word of an oracle. Little advice is it you receive
69:43  A message sent down from the Lord of all worlds
69:44  And if the messenger were to invent any sayings in Our name
69:45  We would certainly seize him by his right hand
69:46  Then We would certainly cut off the artery of his heart
69:47  Nor could any of you protect him
69:48  But indeed this is a message for those who are conscious
69:49  And We certainly know that there are among you those who reject it
69:50  But truly it is a cause of sorrow for the unbelievers
69:51  But indeed it is certainly true
69:52  So glorify the name of your Lord, Most High
