52 verses, revealed in Mecca after Kingship (Al-Mulk) before The Heights (Al-Ma'aarej)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
۞ OH, THE LAYING-BARE of the truth! (1) How awesome that laying-bare of the truth! (2) Ah, what will convey unto thee what the reality is! (3) The Thamud and the Ad denied the (possibility of a) sudden calamity, calling it false. (4) The Thamuds were destroyed by a violent blast of sound. (5) and as for the 'Ad - they were destroyed by a storm wind furiously raging, (6) violent that He compelled against them seven nights and eight days, uninterruptedly, and thou mightest see the people laid prostrate in it as if they were the stumps of fallen down palm-trees. (7) Do you then see of them one remaining? (8) Pharaoh and those before him and the people of the overturned habitations all engaged in the same great sin. (9) They defied their Lord's messenger, so He seized them with an ever-tightening grip. (10) Lo, when the waters rose, We bore you in the running ship (11) That We might make it a Message unto you, and that ears (that should hear the tale and) retain its memory should bear its (lessons) in remembrance. (12) With the first blast of sound from the trumpet, (13) And the earth and mountains heaved and crushed to powder with one levelling blow, (14) On that day, the inevitable event will take place (15) and the sky will be rent asunder - for, frail will it have become on that Day; (16) The angels will stand on all its sides. And on that Day, eight (of them) will carry the Throne of your Lord above them. (17) That will be the Day when you shall be brought forth (before Allah) and no secret of yours shall remain hidden. (18) Then, he who is given his book in his right hand will say: 'Here, take and read my book! (19) Surely, I knew that I should meet my reckoning," (20) Then he shall find himself in a life of bliss; (21) In a lofty Garden (22) The fruits of which are near at hand: (23) 'Eat and drink with wholesome appetite for that you did long ago, in the days gone by.' (24) However, those who will receive the books of the records of their deeds in their left hands will say, "We wish that this record had never been given to us (25) Nor known whatever was my reckoning! (26) How I wish my death had ended all. (27) My wealth has not helped me a thing (28) My power hath gone from me. (29) 'Take him, and fetter him, (30) Then into Hellfire drive him. (31) “Then bind him inside a chain which is seventy arm-lengths.” (32) Verily, He used not to believe in Allah, the Most Great, (33) Nor urged others to feed the poor. (34) "So no friend hath he here this Day. (35) and the only food he has is filth (36) None will eat except the Khati'un (sinners, disbelievers, polytheists, etc.). (37)
