1.  *     The Reality (i.e. the Day of Resurrection)!
2.  *     What is the Reality?
3.  *     And what will make you know what the Reality is?
4.  *     Thamood and Ad people denied the Qariah (the striking Hour (of Judgement))!
5.  *     As for Thamood, they were destroyed by the awful cry!
6.  *     And as for Ad, they were destroyed by a furious violent wind;
7.  *     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!
8.  *     Do you see any remnants of them?
9.  *     And Firaun (Pharaoh), and those before him, and the cities overthrown (the towns of the people of (Lout (Lot)) committed sin,
10.  *     And they disobeyed their Lords Messenger, so He punished them with a strong punishment.
11.  *     Verily! When the water rose beyond its limits (Noohs (Noah) Flood), We carried you (mankind) in the floating (ship that was constructed by Nooh (Noah)).
12.  *     That We might make it a remembrance for you, and the keen ear (person) may (hear and) understand it.
13.  *     Then when the Trumpet will be blown with one blowing (the first one),
14.  *     And the earth and the mountains shall be removed from their places, and crushed with a single crushing,
15.  *     Then on that Day shall the (Great) Event befall,
16.  *     And the heaven will split asunder, for that Day it (the heaven will be frail (weak), and torn up,
17.  *     And the angels will be on its sides, and eight angels will, that Day, bear the Throne of your Lord above them.
18.  *     That Day shall you be brought to Judgement, not a secret of you will be hidden.
19.  *     Then as for him who will be given his Record in his right hand will say: "Take, read my Record!
20.  *     "Surely, I did believe that I shall meet my Account!"
21.  *     So he shall be in a life, well-pleasing.
22.  *     In a lofty Paradise,
23.  *     The fruits in bunches whereof will be low and near at hand.
24.  *     Eat and drink at ease for that which you have sent on before you in days past!
25.  *     But as for him who will be given his Record in his left hand, will say: "I wish that I had not been given my Record!
26.  *     "And that I had never known, how my Account is?
27.  *     "I wish, would that it had been my end (death)!
28.  *     "My wealth has not availed me,
29.  *     "My power and arguments (to defend myself) have gone from me!"
30.  *     (It will be said): "Seize him and fetter him,
31.  *     Then throw him in the blazing Fire.
32.  *     "Then fasten him with a chain whereof the length is seventy cubits!"
33.  *     Verily, He used not to believe in Allah, the Most Great,
34.  *     And urged not on the feeding of AlMiskeen (the poor),
35.  *     So no friend has he here this Day,
36.  *     Nor any food except filth from the washing of wounds,
37.  *     None will eat except the Khatioon (sinners, disbelievers, polytheists, etc.).
38.  *     So I swear by whatsoever you see,
39.  *     And by whatsoever you see not,
40.  *     That this is verily the word of an honoured Messenger (i.e. Jibrael (Gabriel) or Muhammad SAW which he has brought from Allah).
41.  *     It is not the word of a poet, little is that you believe!
42.  *     Nor is it the word of a soothsayer (or a foreteller), little is that you remember!
43.  *     This is the Revelation sent down from the Lord of the Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists).
44.  *     And if he (Muhammad SAW) had forged a false saying concerning Us (Allah  ),
45.  *     We surely should have seized him by his right hand (or with power and might),
46.  *     And then certainly should have cut off his life artery (Aorta),
47.  *     And none of you could withhold Us from (punishing) him.
48.  *     And verily, this Quran is a Reminder for the Muttaqoon (pious - see V.2:2).
49.  *     And verily, We know that there are some among you that belie (this Quran). (Tafsir At-Tabaree, Vol. 29, Page 68)
50.  *     And indeed it (this Quran) will be an anguish for the disbelievers (on the Day of Resurrection).
51.  *     And Verily, it (this Quran) is an absolute truth with certainty .
52.  *     So glorify the Name of your Lord, the Most Great.
