069 : The Reality

69:1
The Sure Reality!

69:2
What is the Sure Reality?

69:3
And what will make thee realise 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 destroyed by a terrible Storm of thunder and lightning!

69:6
And the 'Ad, they were destroyed by a furious Wind, exceedingly violent;

69:7
He made it rage against them seven nights and eight days in succession: so that thou couldst see the (whole) people lying prostrate in its (path), as they had been roots of hollow palm-trees tumbled down!

69:8
Then seest thou any of them left surviving?

69:9
And Pharaoh, and those before him, and the Cities Overthrown, committed habitual Sin.

69:10
And disobeyed (each) the messenger of their Lord; so He punished them with an abundant Penalty.

69:11
We, when the water (of Noah's Flood) overflowed beyond its limits, carried you (mankind), in the floating (Ark),

69:12
That We might make it a Message unto you, and that ears (that should hear the tale and) retain its memory should bear its (lessons) in remembrance.

69:13
Then, when one blast is sounded on the Trumpet,

69:14
And the earth is moved, and its mountains, and they are crushed to powder at one stroke,-

69:15
On that Day shall the (Great) Event come to pass.

69:16
And the sky will be rent asunder, for it will that Day be flimsy,

69:17
And the angels will be on its sides, and eight will, that Day, bear the Throne of thy Lord above them.

69:18
That Day shall ye be brought to Judgment: not an act of yours that ye hide will be hidden.

69:19
Then he that will be given his Record in his right hand will say: "Ah here! Read ye my Record!

69:20
"I did really understand that my Account would (One Day) reach me!"

69:21
And he will be in a life of Bliss,

69:22
In a Garden on high,

69:23
The Fruits whereof (will hang in bunches) low and near.

69:24
"Eat ye and drink ye, with full satisfaction; because of the (good) that ye sent before you, in the days that are gone!"

69:25
And he that will be given his Record in his left hand, will say: "Ah! Would that my Record had not been given to me!

69:26
"And that I had never realised how my account (stood)!

69:27
"Ah! Would that (Death) had made an end of me!

69:28
"Of no profit to me has been my wealth!

69:29
"My power has perished from me!"...

69:30
(The stern command will say): "Seize ye him, and bind ye him,

69:31
"And burn ye him in the Blazing Fire.

69:32
"Further, make him march in a chain, whereof the length is seventy cubits!

69:33
"This was he that would not believe in Allah Most High.

69:34
"And would not encourage the feeding of the indigent!

69:35
"So no friend hath he here this Day.

69:36
"Nor hath he any food except the corruption from the washing of wounds,

69:37
"Which none do eat but those in sin."

69:38
So I do call to witness what ye see,

69:39
And what ye see not,

69:40
That this is verily the word of an honoured messenger;

69:41
It is not the word of a poet: little it is ye believe!

69:42
Nor is it the word of a soothsayer: little admonition it is ye receive.

69:43
(This is) a Message sent down from the Lord of the Worlds.

69:44
And if the messenger were to invent any sayings in Our name,

69:45
We should certainly seize him by his right hand,

69:46
And We should certainly then cut off the artery of his heart:

69:47
Nor could any of you withhold him (from Our wrath).

69:48
But verily this is a Message for the Allah-fearing.

69:49
And We certainly know that there are amongst you those that reject (it).

69:50
But truly (Revelation) is a cause of sorrow for the Unbelievers.

69:51
But verily it is Truth of assured certainty.

69:52
So glorify the name of thy Lord Most High.
