Did you notice?
69:1  The inevitable (of the Day of Resurrection)!
69:2  What is the inevitable?
69:3  And what will make you understand what the inevitable is?
69:4  Thamud and Ad people denied the calamity (the striking Hour of judgment)!
69:5  As for Thamud, they were destroyed by the awful cry!
69:6  As for Ad, they were destroyed by a furious violent wind,
69:7  which Allah imposed on them for 7 nights and 8 days in succession, so that you could see the people lying overthrown (destroyed) in it as if they were hollow trunks of date-palms!
69:8  Now, do you see any remnants of them?
69:9  And Pharaoh and those before him, and the cities overthrown (the people of Lot) who committed sin
69:10  and they disobeyed their Lord’s Messenger, so He seized them with a strong seize.
69:11  Surely! When the water rose beyond limits (Noah’s flood), We carried you people in the floating ship,
69:12  that We may make it an event of warning for you so that it may be understood by the retaining ears (in memory).
69:13  Then when the Trumpet will be blown with one blowing (first one)
69:14  and the earth with its mountains will be removed (from their places) and crushed with a single crushing,
69:15  then on that Day the great Event will befall,
69:16  and the heaven will split asunder, and for that Day it (heaven) will be frail and torn up.
69:17  And the angels will be on all sides and on that Day 8 angels will bear the Throne of your Lord above them.
69:18  That Day you will be brought to judgment (before your Lord), and not a secret of you will be hidden.
69:19  Then, as for the one who will be given its record (of deeds) in its right hand, will say: “Here! read my record!
69:20  Surely, I did believe that I shall meet my account!”
69:21  So he shall have a life of well-pleasing,
69:22  in a lofty Paradise,
69:23  with fruits in bunches which will be low and near at hand.
69:24  (It will be said him): “Eat and drink at ease, (this is the reward) for what you did sent on before in past days!”
69:25  But as for the one who will be given its record (of deeds) in its left hand, will say: “I wish that I had not been given my record (of deeds)
69:26  and that I had never known what my account was?
69:27  I wish if only it had been my end (death)!
69:28  My wealth has availed me nothing,
69:29  my power and arguments (to defend myself) have gone from me!”
69:30  (It will be said): “Seize him and fetter (with a chain around its neck),
69:31  then throw him in the blazing fire,
69:32  then fasten him with a chain of 70 cubits long!
69:33  Surely, he did not believe in Allah, the Great,
69:34  and did not urge on the feeding of the poor.
69:35  This Day he has neither a friend here,
69:36  nor any food except the filth from the washing of wounds,
69:37  which none will eat except the sinners.”
69:38  So, surely I swear by whatever you see,
69:39  and by whatever you don’t see,
69:40  that surely this is the word of an honored Messenger.
69:41  It is not the word of a poet, little is that you believe,
69:42  nor it is the word of a soothsayer, little is that you remember.
69:43  This is the revelation sent down from the Lord of the worlds.
69:44  Had he (Muhammad) forged false sayings concerning Us,
69:45  We certainly would have seized him by his right hand
69:46  then certainly would have cut off his life arter
69:47  and none of you could prevent (Us) from punishing him.
69:48  Surely this (Qur’an) is a reminder for the pious.
69:49  Surely We know that there are some among you who deny (the Qur’an)
69:50  and indeed it (this Qur’an) will be an anguish for the disbelievers.
69:51  Yet, it (this Qur’an) is an absolute truth with certainty.
69:52  So glorify the name of your Lord, the Great.
