    As for Thamud, they were annihilated by the devastation.

  • 69:6

    As for Aad, they were annihilated by a furious violent wind.

  • 69:7

    He unleashed it upon them for seven nights and eight days, in succession. You could see the people destroyed in it, as if they were decayed palm trunks.

  • 69:8

    Do you see any legacy for them?

  • 69:9

    And Pharaoh, and those before him, and the sinners, came with wickedness.

  • 69:10

    They disobeyed the messenger of their Lord. So He took them with a devastating requital.

  • 69:11

    When the water flooded, We carried you on the vessel.

  • 69:12

    That We would make it as a reminder for you, and so that any listening ear may understand.

  • 69:13

    When the horn is blown once.

  • 69:14

    The earth and the mountains will be removed from their place and crushed with a single crush.

  • 69:15

    On that day the unavoidable event will come to pass.

  • 69:16

    The heavens will be torn, and on that day it will be flimsy.

  • 69:17

    The controllers will be on its borders, and the throne of your Lord will be carried above them by eight.

  • 69:18

    On that day, you will be exposed, nothing from you can be hidden.

  • 69:19

    As for the one who is given his record in his right, he will say, "Here, come and read my record!"

  • 69:20

    "I knew that I was going to be held accountable."

  • 69:21

    So he shall be in a life, well-pleasing.

  • 69:22

    In a lofty Paradise.

  • 69:23

    Its fruits are within reach.

  • 69:24

    "Eat and drink merrily in return for your works in days past."

  • 69:25

    As for he who is given his record in his left, he will say, "Oh, I wish I never received my record,"

  • 69:26

    "That I never knew my account,"

  • 69:27

    "I wish the end had been final,"

  • 69:28

    "My money cannot help me,"

  • 69:29

    "All my power is gone."

  • 69:30

    Take him and shackle him.

  • 69:31

    Then to hell cast him.

  • 69:32

    Then, in a chain that is the length of seventy hands, tie him up.

  • 69:33

    For he did not acknowledge God, the Great.

  • 69:34

    Nor did he advocate the feeding of the poor.

  • 69:35

    Consequently, he has no friend here today.

  • 69:36

    Nor any food, except for pollutants.

  • 69:37

    Food for the sinners.

  • 69:38

    I swear by what you see.

  • 69:39

    What you do not see.

  • 69:40

    This is the utterance of an honorable messenger.

  • 69:41

    It is not the utterance of a poet; rarely do you acknowledge.

  • 69:42

    Nor the utterance of a soothsayer; rarely do you take heed.

  • 69:43

    A revelation from the Lord of the universes.

  • 69:44

    Had he attributed anything falsely to Us.

  • 69:45

    We would have seized him by the right.

  • 69:46

    Then, We would have severed his life-line.

  • 69:47

    None of you would be able to prevent it.

  • 69:48

    This is a reminder for the righteous.

  • 69:49

    We know that some of you are deniers.

  • 69:50

    That it is a distress for the ingrates.

  • 69:51

    It is the absolute truth.

  • 69:52

    Therefore, you shall glorify the name of your Lord, the Great.
