69.0 In The Name Of YHWH: The Almighty, The Merciful.
69:1 The Reality.
69:2 What is the Reality?
69:3 And what would cause thee to recognize what the Reality is?
69:4 Thamud and Ad denied the Reality.
69:5 Then as for Thamud
they were destroyed by a storm with the greatest thunder and lightning never to be recounted by any!
69:6 And as for Ad
they were destroyed by a deadly scourge of violent winds
69:7 which He Set Against them seven long nights and eight days without let.
And thou could see the people therein laid prostrate like uprooted date palms.
69:8 Does thou hear any recount of those who suffered it?
69:9 And there came pharaoh
and those before him
and the cities thrown down due to their errors.
69:10 They opposed the Messengers Of their Lord
so He Seized them With a Tight Grip.
69:11 And when the water rose We carried yours in the ship
69:12 that We might make it a reminder for you
and that the hearing ears might take heed.
69:13 The trumpet will be blown with a single blow
69:14 before the Earth and the mountains are leveled with a single leveling and everything therein is taken up.
69:15 That Day the Inevitability becomes the Reality.
69:16 Yea the Day the wide Heavens will be rent asunder
as if feathers blown about.
69:17 The angels will be upon its borders
and eight will bear the Throne Of thy Lord above them.
69:18 That Day you will be presented your books
and no secret among any of you will be hidden.
69:19 As for those given their Book in their right hand
they will say: Here read my Book
69:20 for I knew that I would meet my Reckoning.
69:21 Then they will have a pleasing Eternal Life
69:22 in a High Garden
69:23 where the fruits hang low and it is said:
69:24 Eat and drink with ease for what you sent before you in days past.
69:25 But as for those given their book in their left hand
they will say: If only this record of mine were not kept!
69:26 And this were not my Reckoning!
69:27 Yea if only the first death had been my end!
69:28 Now my wealth does not avail me
69:29 and gone from me is my security and authority!
69:30 All that is said is: Take them!
And fetter them!
69:31 Then burn them in Hell!
69:32 And anchor them to chains of seventy cubits in length!
69:33 For they did not believe in God, The Almighty
69:34 and did not encourage helping those in need.
69:35 So for them there are no intimate friends this Day
69:36 nor drink except foul puss
69:37 which is only drank by those who erred.
69:38 This do I swear by what you see
69:39 and what you see not.
69:40 It is the speech of Gods’ Noble Messenger
69:41 and not the speech of a poet
yet so little do most believe!
69:42 Indeed it is not the speech of a soothsayer
yet so little do most take heed!
69:43 A Successive Revelation From The Lord of the Worlds.
69:44 And had the messenger fabricated some sayings
69:45 We would have taken him with Our right hands
69:46 and severed his aorta.
69:47 And not one among you could have prevented that nor anything else We do!
69:48 Yea this is a Kindly Reminder to those of Wise Fear
69:49 and We know who among you denies
69:50 so this is a sorrow upon all those fools.
69:51 For it is the Certain Truth
69:52 so give thou glory with The Name Of thy Lord, The Almighty.
