Section 1

[Haqqah 69:1] The true event!

[Haqqah 69:2] How tremendous is the true event!

[Haqqah 69:3] And what have you understood, how tremendous the true event is!

[Haqqah 69:4] The tribes of Thamud and A’ad denied the event of great dismay. (The Day of Resurrection)

[Haqqah 69:5] So regarding the Thamud, they were destroyed by a terrible scream.

[Haqqah 69:6] And as for A’ad, they were destroyed by a severe thundering windstorm.

[Haqqah 69:7] He forced it upon them with strength, consecutively for seven nights and eight days - so you would see those people overthrown in it, like trunks of date palms fallen down.

[Haqqah 69:8] So do you see any survivor among them?

[Haqqah 69:9] And Firaun, and those before him, and the dwellings that were inverted and thrown, had brought error.

[Haqqah 69:10] They therefore disobeyed the Noble Messengers of their Lord – so He seized them with an intense seizure.

[Haqqah 69:11] Indeed when the water swelled up, We boarded you onto the ship.

[Haqqah 69:12] In order to make it a remembrance for you, and in order that the ears that store may remember.

[Haqqah 69:13] So when the Trumpet will be blown, with a sudden single blow.

[Haqqah 69:14] And the earth and the mountains will be lifted up and crushed with a single crush.

[Haqqah 69:15] So that is the day when the forthcoming event will occur.

[Haqqah 69:16] And the heaven will split asunder - so on that day it will be unstable.

[Haqqah 69:17] And the angels will be on its sides; and on that day, eight angels will carry the Throne of your Lord above them.

[Haqqah 69:18] On that day all of you will be brought forth, so none among you wishing to hide will be able to hide.

[Haqqah 69:19] So whoever is given his book in his right hand - he will say, “Take, read my account!”

[Haqqah 69:20] “I was certain that I will confront my account.”

[Haqqah 69:21] He is therefore in the desired serenity.

[Haqqah 69:22] In a lofty Garden -

[Haqqah 69:23] The fruit clusters of which are hanging down.

[Haqqah 69:24] “Eat and drink with pleasure – the reward of what you sent ahead, in the past days.”

[Haqqah 69:25] And whoever is given his book in his left hand - he will say, “Alas, if only my account were not given to me!”

[Haqqah 69:26] “And had never come to know my account!”

[Haqqah 69:27] “Alas, if only it had been just death.”

[Haqqah 69:28] “My wealth did not in the least benefit me.”

[Haqqah 69:29] “All my power has vanished.”

[Haqqah 69:30] It will be said, “Seize him, and shackle him.”

[Haqqah 69:31] “Then hurl him into the blazing fire.”

[Haqqah 69:32] “Then bind him inside a chain which is seventy arm-lengths.”

[Haqqah 69:33] “Indeed he refused to accept faith in Allah, the Greatest.”

[Haqqah 69:34] “And did not urge to feed the needy.”

[Haqqah 69:35] “So he does not have any friend here this day.”

[Haqqah 69:36] “Nor any food except the pus discharged from the people of hell.”

[Haqqah 69:37] “Which none except the guilty shall eat.”

Section 2

[Haqqah 69:38] So by oath of the things you see.

[Haqqah 69:39] And by oath of those you do not see.

[Haqqah 69:40] This Qur’an is the speech of Allah with a gracious Noble Messenger.

[Haqqah 69:41] And it is not the speech of a poet; how little do you believe!

[Haqqah 69:42] Nor is it the speech of a soothsayer; how little do you ponder!

[Haqqah 69:43] Sent down by the Lord Of The Creation.

[Haqqah 69:44] And had he fabricated just one matter upon Us -

[Haqqah 69:45] We would have definitely taken revenge from him.

[Haqqah 69:46] Then would have cut off his heart’s artery.

[Haqqah 69:47] Then none among you would be his saviour.

[Haqqah 69:48] And indeed this Qur’an is an advice for the pious.

[Haqqah 69:49] And indeed We know that some among you are deniers.

[Haqqah 69:50] And indeed it is a despair for the disbelievers.

[Haqqah 69:51] And indeed it is a certain Truth.

[Haqqah 69:52] Therefore (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him), proclaim the purity of your Lord, the Greatest.
