Al-Haaqqa - The Reality - Meccan

  1. In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

  2. 69:1 The Sure Reality!

  3. 69:2 What is the Sure Reality?

  4. 69:3 And what will make thee realise what the Sure Reality is?

  5. 69:4 The Thamud and the 'Ad People (branded) as false the Stunning Calamity!

  6. 69:5 But the Thamud,- they were destroyed by a terrible Storm of thunder and lightning!

  7. 69:6 And the 'Ad, they were destroyed by a furious Wind, exceedingly violent;

  8. 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!

  9. 69:8 Then seest thou any of them left surviving?

  10. 69:9 And Pharaoh, and those before him, and the Cities Overthrown, committed habitual Sin.

  11. 69:10 And disobeyed (each) the apostle of their Lord; so He punished them with an abundant Penalty.

  12. 69:11 We, when the water (of Noah's Flood) overflowed beyond its limits, carried you (mankind), in the floating (Ark),

  13. 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.

  14. 69:13 Then, when one blast is sounded on the Trumpet,

  15. 69:14 And the earth is moved, and its mountains, and they are crushed to powder at one stroke,-

  16. 69:15 On that Day shall the (Great) Event come to pass.

  17. 69:16 And the sky will be rent asunder, for it will that Day be flimsy,

  18. 69:17 And the angels will be on its sides, and eight will, that Day, bear the Throne of thy Lord above them.

  19. 69:18 That Day shall ye be brought to Judgment: not an act of yours that ye hide will be hidden.

  20. 69:19 Then he that will be given his Record in his right hand will say: "Ah here! Read ye my Record!

  21. 69:20 "I did really understand that my Account would (One Day) reach me!"

  22. 69:21 And he will be in a life of Bliss,

  23. 69:22 In a Garden on high,

  24. 69:23 The Fruits whereof (will hang in bunches) low and near.

  25. 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!"

  26. 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!

  27. 69:26 "And that I had never realised how my account (stood)!

  28. 69:27 "Ah! Would that (Death) had made an end of me!

  29. 69:28 "Of no profit to me has been my wealth!

  30. 69:29 "My power has perished from me!"...

  31. 69:30 (The stern command will say): "Seize ye him, and bind ye him,

  32. 69:31 "And burn ye him in the Blazing Fire.

  33. 69:32 "Further, make him march in a chain, whereof the length is seventy cubits!

  34. 69:33 "This was he that would not believe in Allah Most High.

  35. 69:34 "And would not encourage the feeding of the indigent!

  36. 69:35 "So no friend hath he here this Day.

  37. 69:36 "Nor hath he any food except the corruption from the washing of wounds,

  38. 69:37 "Which none do eat but those in sin."

  39. 69:38 So I do call to witness what ye see,

  40. 69:39 And what ye see not,

  41. 69:40 That this is verily the word of an honoured apostle;

  42. 69:41 It is not the word of a poet: little it is ye believe!

  43. 69:42 Nor is it the word of a soothsayer: little admonition it is ye receive.

  44. 69:43 (This is) a Message sent down from the Lord of the Worlds.

  45. 69:44 And if the apostle were to invent any sayings in Our name,

  46. 69:45 We should certainly seize him by his right hand,

  47. 69:46 And We should certainly then cut off the artery of his heart:

  48. 69:47 Nor could any of you withhold him (from Our wrath).

  49. 69:48 But verily this is a Message for the Allah-fearing.

  50. 69:49 And We certainly know that there are amongst you those that reject (it).

  51. 69:50 But truly (Revelation) is a cause of sorrow for the Unbelievers.

  52. 69:51 But verily it is Truth of assured certainty.

  53. 69:52 So glorify the name of thy Lord Most High.
