What is the Ultimate Truth?
What will cause you to realize what the Ultimate Truth is?
The Thamud and the Ad people did not believe something awful would happen.
The Thamud were destroyed by a terrifying storm.
The Ad were destroyed by a furious, violent wind.
He made it rage against them seven nights and eight days continuously. People could be seen fallen. They were like hollow, palm logs.
Do you see any survivors?
Pharaoh and those preceding him and the overthrown cities were with sin.
They disobeyed the messenger of their Lord, so He punished them with ample punishment.
When the water level rose [in the flood of Noah], We carried (humanity) in what floated [which was the ark].
[We did this] so We might make it a reminder for you so that attentive ears would be aware.
When one blast peals from the trumpet!
[When] the earth and mountains are lifted and then crushed to powder in one event!
That day the episode will come to pass.
The sky will rip apart, for on that day, it will be dilapidated.
The angels will be on its sides. On that day, eight will bear the throne of your Lord above them.
On that day, you will be exposed. Not one of your secrets will remain hidden.
The one who receives his/her record in his/her right hand will say, “Now read my record.
“I really did understand that I would be held accountable.”
He/she will be in a life of bliss…
…in a garden on high,…
…where fruits hang near.
Eat and drink to your satisfaction because of what you put forward in the days gone by.
The one who receives his/her record in his/her left hand will say, “Oh, I wish that my record had not been given to me.
“[I wish that] I had never realized my account.
“Oh, I wish that (death) had been the end.
“My money has done me no good.
“My power has left me.”
[The command:] “Seize him/her! Bind him/her!
“Cast him/her into the blazing fire.
“[Cast him/her] into a chain seventy cubits long.
“This is one who would not believe in Allah the Magnificent.
“[He/she] would not encourage the feeding of the poor.
“He/she has no friend here this day.
“[He/she] has no food except the pus from infected wounds.
“No one will eat that except those lost in sin.”
So! I call to witness what you see.
[I call to witness] what you do not see.
This is truly the word of a noble messenger!
It is not the word of a poet. You have little faith!
It is not the word of a sorcerer. You accept little advice!
[This is] a message from the Lord of the Worlds!
If (the messenger) were to invent any sayings in Our name,…
…We would grab him by his right hand!
We would block the artery to his heart!
None of you could save him!
Truly, this is a message for those who fear Allah.
Indeed, We certainly know that there are many among you who reject it.
Truly, it is a cause of grief for the unbelievers.
Truly, it is truth of assurance.
Glorify the name of your Lord the Magnificent.
