# 69 The Reality (Al-Haaqqa) Explanation of # 69 The Reality (Al-Haaqqa)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

[69.1] The Reality!
[69.2] What is the Reality ?
[69.3] Ah, what will convey unto thee what the reality is!
[69.4] (The tribes of) Thamud and A'ad disbelieved in the judgment to come.
[69.5] As for Thamud, they were destroyed by the lightning.
[69.6] And as for A'ad, they were destroyed by a fierce roaring wind,
[69.7] Which He imposed on them for seven long nights and eight long days so that thou mightest have seen men lying overthrown, as they were hollow trunks of palm-trees.
[69.8] Canst thou (O Muhammad) see any remnant of them ?
[69.9] And Pharaoh and those before him, and the communities that were destroyed, brought error,
[69.10] And they disobeyed the messenger of their Lord, therefor did He grip them with a tightening grip.
[69.11] Lo! when the waters rose, We carried you upon the ship
[69.12] That We might make it a memorial for you, and that remembering ears (that heard the story) might remember.
[69.13] And when the trumpet shall sound one blast
[69.14] And the earth with the mountains shall be lifted up and crushed with one crash,
[69.15] Then, on that day will the Event befall.
[69.16] And the heaven will split asunder, for that day it will be frail.
[69.17] And the angels will be on the sides thereof, and eight will uphold the Throne of thy Lord that day, above them.
[69.18] On that day ye will be exposed; not a secret of you will be hidden.
[69.19] Then, as for him who is given his record in his right hand, he will say: Take, read my book!
[69.20] Surely I knew that I should have to meet my reckoning.
[69.21] Then he will be in blissful state
[69.22] In a high garden
[69.23] Whereof the clusters are in easy reach.
[69.24] (And it will be said unto those therein): Eat and drink at ease for that which ye sent on before you in past days.
[69.25] But as for him who is given his record in his left hand, he will say: Oh, would that I had not been given my book
[69.26] And knew not what my reckoning!
[69.27] Oh, would that it had been death!
[69.28] My wealth hath not availed me,
[69.29] My power hath gone from me.
[69.30] (It will be said): Take him and fetter him
[69.31] And then expose him to hell-fire
[69.32] And then insert him in a chain whereof the length is seventy cubits.
[69.33] Lo! He used not to believe in Allah the Tremendous,
[69.34] And urged not on the feeding of the wretched.
[69.35] Therefor hath he no lover here this day,
[69.36] Nor any food save filth
[69.37] Which none but sinners eat.
[69.38] But nay! I swear by all that ye see
[69.39] And all that ye see not
[69.40] That it is indeed the speech of an illustrious messenger.
[69.41] It is not poet's speech - little is it that ye believe!
[69.42] Nor diviner's speech - little is it that ye remember!
[69.43] It is a revelation from the Lord of the Worlds.
[69.44] And if he had invented false sayings concerning Us,
[69.45] We assuredly had taken him by the right hand
[69.46] And then severed his life-artery,
[69.47] And not one of you could have held Us off from him.
[69.48] And lo! it is a warrant unto those who ward off (evil).
[69.49] And lo! We know that some among you will deny (it).
[69.50] And lo! it is indeed an anguish for the disbelievers.
[69.51] And lo! it is absolute truth.
[69.52] So glorify the name of thy Tremendous Lord.
