The Reality (i.e. the Day of Resurrection)!
What is the Reality?
And what will make you know what the Reality is?
Thamud and"Ad people denied the Qari"ah [the striking Hour (of Judgement)]!
As for Thamud, they were destroyed by the awful cry!
And as for"Ad, they were destroyed by a furious violent wind;
Which Allah imposed on them for seven nights and eight days in succession, so that you could see men lying overthrown (destroyed), as if they were hollow trunks of date-palms!
Do you see any remnants of them?
And Fir"aun (Pharaoh), and those before him, and the cities overthrown [the towns of the people of [Lout (Lot)] committed sin,
And they disobeyed their Lord"s Messenger, so He punished them with a strong punishment.
Verily! When the water rose beyond its limits [Nuh"s (Noah) Flood], We carried you (mankind) in the floating [ship that was constructed by Nuh (Noah)].
That We might make it a remembrance for you, and the keen ear (person) may (hear and) understand it.
Then when the Trumpet will be blown with one blowing (the first one),
And the earth and the mountains shall be removed from their places, and crushed with a single crushing,
Then on that Day shall the (Great) Event befall,
And the heaven will split asunder, for that Day it (the heaven will be frail (weak), and torn up,
And the angels will be on its sides, and eight angels will, that Day, bear the Throne of your Lord above them.
That Day shall you be brought to Judgement, not a secret of you will be hidden.
Then as for him who will be given his Record in his right hand will say:"Take, read my Record!
"Surely, I did believe that I shall meet my Account!"
