69:1  The Reality.
69:2  What is the Reality?
69:3  And what can make yousg realize what the Reality is?
69:4  Thamûd and Ād disbelieved in the Shocking Event.
69:5  So as for Thamûd, they were annihilated by the Overwhelming.
69:6  And as for Ād, they were annihilated by a furious, roaring wind
69:7  which He unleashed upon them for seven nights and eight days in succession, so yousg could see the people tossed around as though they were stumps of hollow palm trees.
69:8  So can yousg see any remnant of them?
69:9  Then Pharaoh and whoever was before him and the Overturned Cities came up with grave offenses
69:10  and disobeyed the messenger of their Lord, so He seized them with an overpowering grip.
69:11  Indeed, when the waters overflowed We carried youpl in the running ship,
69:12  making it a lesson for youpl—so that an attentive ear may take heed.
69:13  Then, when the Trumpet is blown with a single blast,
69:14  and the earth and the mountains are lifted up and crushed with a single crush—
69:15  on that day, the Inevitable Event shall come to pass
69:16  and the heaven shall crack, for on that day it shall be frail.
69:17  And the angels are ranged around its borders, while eight carry the Throne of yoursg Lord above them on that day.
69:18  On that day youpl are presented, and no hidden secret of yours remains hidden.
69:19  So as for the one who was given his record in his right hand, he says, “Here, take my record and read it.
69:20  Indeed, I was certain that I would meet my reckoning.”
69:21  So he will be in a well-pleasing living,
69:22  in a lofty Garden (of Paradise),
69:23  its clusters (of fruit) within reach—
69:24  “Eat and drink with satisfaction on account of what youpl did in the days gone by.”
69:25  But as for the one who was given his record in his left hand, he says, “I wish I was never given my record
69:26  and never knew what my reckoning was.
69:27  If only it was the end!
69:28  My money cannot avail me;
69:29  my power has vanished from me.”
69:30  “Takepl him and shackle him,
69:31  then scorch him in purgatory,
69:32  then in a chain whose length is seventy cubits tie him up.
69:33  For he would not believe in Allah, the Great,
69:34  nor would he urge (others to serve) food to the destitutesg.
69:35  So he has no intimate (friend) here today,
69:36  nor any food except scum,
69:37  which none eats except the wrongdoers."
69:38  So I swear by what youpl see
69:39  and what you do not see:
69:40  it is indeed the word of a noble messenger
69:41  and in no way is it the word of a poet—little do youpl believe,
69:42  nor is it the speech of a soothsayer—little do you remind yourselves.
69:43  (It is) a bestowal from on high by the Lord of all realms.
69:44  And had he falsely attributed some statements to Us,
69:45  We would certainly have seized him strongly,
69:46  then We would certainly have slashed his aorta,
69:47  and in no way could any of you have defended him.
69:48  And indeed, it is a reminding for the mindful pl (of God).
69:49  And indeed, We do know that some of you are disbelievers.
69:50  And indeed, it is surely a source of grief for the deniers.
69:51  And indeed, it is surely the truth of certitude.
69:52  So highly exalt the name of yoursg Lord, the Great.
