The Inevitable

Revealed at Mecca, Verses: 52 In the name of Allah, The Merciful, The All-merciful
  1. The Inevitable; (1)
  2. what is the Inevitable; (2)
  3. and what will teach thee what is the Inevitable!(3)
  4. Thamood and Ad gave lies to the Clatterer!(4)
  5. Then as for Thamood, they were destroyed by the Screamer.(5)
  6. And as for Ad, they were destroyed by a violent clamorous wind,(6)
  7. which He imposed on them for seven nights and eight days uninterrup-tedly, so that thou wouldst see the people lying prostrate in it, as if they were stumps of fallen down palm-trees.(7)
  8. Now dost thou see any remnant of them?(8)
  9. And Pharaoh, and those before him, and the subverted cities, committed wrong things.(9)
  10. They disobeyed the Messenger of their Lord, so He seized them with a surpassing grip.(10)
  11. When the waters rose high, We carried you in the running ship,(11)
  12. that We make it a reminder for you, and that retaining ears may retain it.(12)
  13. So, when the Trumpet is blown with a single blast,(13)
  14. and the earth and the mountains are lifted up and crushed with a single crash,(14)
  15. that day the Event shall befall,(15)
  16. and that day the heaven shall be split, and it shall be frail,(16)
  17. and the angels shall be on its borders; and that day, eight shall carry above them the Throne of thy Lord.(17)
  18. That day you shall be presented, no secret of yours hidden.(18)
  19. Then, as for him who is given his Book in his right hand, he will say, `here, take and read my Book;(19)
  20. I thought that I should meet my reckoning'.(20)
  21. So he shall be in a pleasing life,(21)
  22. in a lofty garden,(22)
  23. its clusters at hand: (23)
  24. `Eat and drink with wholesome appetite for what you did long ago, in days gone-by'.(24)
  25. And as for him who is given his Book in his left hand, he shall say, `would that I had not been given my Book;(25)
  26. and I had not learnt my reckoning!(26)
  27. Would that it had been the end!(27)
  28. My wealth has not availed me;(28)
  29. my authority is gone from me'__(29)
  30. `Take him, and fetter him,(30)
  31. then cast him in Hell,(31)
  32. then in a chain of seventy cubits' length insert him.(32)
  33. Surely he never believed in God, the Mighty,(33)
  34. and he never urged the feeding of the needy;(34)
  35. so today, there is no loyal friend for him,(35)
  36. nor any food except foul pus,(36)
  37. which none except the guilty eat.'(37)
  38. No, I swear by what you see,(38)
  39. and by what you do not see,(39)
  40. it is surely the Word of a Noble Messenger,(40)
  41. and it is not the word of a poet; little do you believe;(41)
  42. nor the word of a soothsayer; little do you heed.(42)
  43. It is a sending down from the Lord of the world.(43)
  44. Had he invented any sayings against us,(44)
  45. We would have seized him by the right hand,(45)
  46. then We would have cut his life-artery;(46)
  47. then none of you could have defended him.(47)
  48. And surely it is a Reminder for the godfearing.(48)
  49. And We surely know that some of you give lies.(49)
  50. And it is surely a (cause of) sorrow to the unbelievers.(50)
  51. And it is surely the Truth of Certainty.(51)
  52. So extol the Name of thy Mighty Lord.(52)
