بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ الحاقَّةُ(1)
The true event!(1)
مَا الحاقَّةُ(2)
How tremendous is the true event!(2)
وَما أَدرىٰكَ مَا الحاقَّةُ(3)
And what have you understood, how tremendous the true event is!(3)
كَذَّبَت ثَمودُ وَعادٌ بِالقارِعَةِ(4)
The tribes of Thamud and A’ad denied the event of great dismay. (The Day of Resurrection)(4)
فَأَمّا ثَمودُ فَأُهلِكوا بِالطّاغِيَةِ(5)
So regarding the Thamud, they were destroyed by a terrible scream.(5)
وَأَمّا عادٌ فَأُهلِكوا بِريحٍ صَرصَرٍ عاتِيَةٍ(6)
And as for A’ad, they were destroyed by a severe thundering windstorm.(6)
سَخَّرَها عَلَيهِم سَبعَ لَيالٍ وَثَمٰنِيَةَ أَيّامٍ حُسومًا فَتَرَى القَومَ فيها صَرعىٰ كَأَنَّهُم أَعجازُ نَخلٍ خاوِيَةٍ(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.(7)
فَهَل تَرىٰ لَهُم مِن باقِيَةٍ(8)
So do you see any survivor among them?(8)
وَجاءَ فِرعَونُ وَمَن قَبلَهُ وَالمُؤتَفِكٰتُ بِالخاطِئَةِ(9)
And Firaun, and those before him, and the dwellings that were inverted and thrown, had brought error.(9)
فَعَصَوا رَسولَ رَبِّهِم فَأَخَذَهُم أَخذَةً رابِيَةً(10)
They therefore disobeyed the Noble Messengers of their Lord – so He seized them with an intense seizure.(10)
إِنّا لَمّا طَغَا الماءُ حَمَلنٰكُم فِى الجارِيَةِ(11)
Indeed when the water swelled up, We boarded you onto the ship.(11)
لِنَجعَلَها لَكُم تَذكِرَةً وَتَعِيَها أُذُنٌ وٰعِيَةٌ(12)
In order to make it a remembrance for you, and in order that the ears that store may remember.(12)
فَإِذا نُفِخَ فِى الصّورِ نَفخَةٌ وٰحِدَةٌ(13)
So when the Trumpet will be blown, with a sudden single blow.(13)
وَحُمِلَتِ الأَرضُ وَالجِبالُ فَدُكَّتا دَكَّةً وٰحِدَةً(14)
And the earth and the mountains will be lifted up and crushed with a single crush.(14)
فَيَومَئِذٍ وَقَعَتِ الواقِعَةُ(15)
So that is the day when the forthcoming event will occur.(15)
وَانشَقَّتِ السَّماءُ فَهِىَ يَومَئِذٍ واهِيَةٌ(16)
And the heaven will split asunder – so on that day it will be unstable.(16)
وَالمَلَكُ عَلىٰ أَرجائِها ۚ وَيَحمِلُ عَرشَ رَبِّكَ فَوقَهُم يَومَئِذٍ ثَمٰنِيَةٌ(17)
And the angels will be on its sides; and on that day, eight angels will carry the Throne of your Lord above them.(17)
يَومَئِذٍ تُعرَضونَ لا تَخفىٰ مِنكُم خافِيَةٌ(18)
On that day all of you will be brought forth, so none among you wishing to hide will be able to hide.(18)
فَأَمّا مَن أوتِىَ كِتٰبَهُ بِيَمينِهِ فَيَقولُ هاؤُمُ اقرَءوا كِتٰبِيَه(19)
So whoever is given his book in his right hand – he will say, “Take, read my account!”(19)
إِنّى ظَنَنتُ أَنّى مُلٰقٍ حِسابِيَه(20)
“I was certain that I will confront my account.”(20)
فَهُوَ فى عيشَةٍ راضِيَةٍ(21)
He is therefore in the desired serenity.(21)
فى جَنَّةٍ عالِيَةٍ(22)
In a lofty Garden –(22)
قُطوفُها دانِيَةٌ(23)
The fruit clusters of which are hanging down.(23)
كُلوا وَاشرَبوا هَنيـًٔا بِما أَسلَفتُم فِى الأَيّامِ الخالِيَةِ(24)
“Eat and drink with pleasure – the reward of what you sent ahead, in the past days.”(24)
وَأَمّا مَن أوتِىَ كِتٰبَهُ بِشِمالِهِ فَيَقولُ يٰلَيتَنى لَم أوتَ كِتٰبِيَه(25)
