5. كَذَّبَتْ ثَمُودُ وَعَادٌ بِالْقَارِعَةِ
The Thamud and 'Ad denied the consequential calamity.
6. فَأَمَّا ثَمُودُ فَأُهْلِكُوا بِالطَّاغِيَةِ
So destroyed were the Thamud by a storm of thunder and lightning;

And the 'Ad were destroyed by the furious cold blast of roaring wind
8. سَخَّرَهَا عَلَيْهِمْ سَبْعَ لَيَالٍ وَثَمَانِيَةَ أَيَّامٍ حُسُومًا فَتَرَى الْقَوْمَ فِيهَا صَرْعَىٰ كَأَنَّهُمْ أَعْجَازُ نَخْلٍ خَاوِيَةٍ
Which He sent to assail them for seven nights and eight days running. You should have seen the people prostrate like the decayed trunks of date-palm trees.
9. فَهَلْ تَرَىٰ لَهُم مِّن بَاقِيَةٍ
Do you see any trace of them?
10. وَجَاءَ فِرْعَوْنُ وَمَن قَبْلَهُ وَالْمُؤْتَفِكَاتُ بِالْخَاطِئَةِ

13. لِنَجْعَلَهَا لَكُمْ تَذْكِرَةً وَتَعِيَهَا أُذُنٌ وَاعِيَةٌ
In order to make it a warning for you, and that the ear retentive may preserve it.
14. فَإِذَا نُفِخَ فِي الصُّورِ نَفْخَةٌ وَاحِدَةٌ
When the single blast is sounded on the trumpet,
15. وَحُمِلَتِ الْأَرْضُ وَالْجِبَالُ فَدُكَّتَا دَكَّةً وَاحِدَةً
And the earth and mountains heaved and crushed to powder with one levelling blow,
16. فَيَوْمَئِذٍ وَقَعَتِ الْوَاقِعَةُ
On that Day will come what is to come.
17. وَانشَقَّتِ السَّمَاءُ فَهِيَ يَوْمَئِذٍ وَاهِيَةٌ

21. إِنِّي ظَنَنتُ أَنِّي مُلَاقٍ حِسَابِيَهْ
I was certain I'll be given my account."
22. فَهُوَ فِي عِيشَةٍ رَّاضِيَةٍ
So he shall have an agreeable life
23. فِي جَنَّةٍ عَالِيَةٍ
In high empyrean
24. قُطُوفُهَا دَانِيَةٌ
With fruits hanging low within reach,
25. كُلُوا وَاشْرَبُوا هَنِيئًا بِمَا أَسْلَفْتُمْ فِي الْأَيَّامِ الْخَالِيَةِ
(And told:) "Eat and drink to your fill as reward for (good) deeds you had done in days of yore."
26. وَأَمَّا مَنْ أُوتِيَ كِتَابَهُ بِشِمَالِهِ فَيَقُولُ يَا لَيْتَنِي لَمْ أُوتَ كِتَابِيَهْ

Then cast him to be burnt in Hell;
33. ثُمَّ فِي سِلْسِلَةٍ ذَرْعُهَا سَبْعُونَ ذِرَاعًا فَاسْلُكُوهُ
And string him to a chain seventy cubits long.
34. إِنَّهُ كَانَ لَا يُؤْمِنُ بِاللَّهِ الْعَظِيمِ
He did not believe in God the supreme,
35. وَلَا يَحُضُّ عَلَىٰ طَعَامِ الْمِسْكِينِ
Nor urged others to feed the poor.
36. فَلَيْسَ لَهُ الْيَوْمَ هَاهُنَا حَمِيمٌ
That is why he has no friend today,
37. وَلَا طَعَامٌ إِلَّا مِنْ غِسْلِينٍ
Nor food other than suppuration (filth)
38. لَّا يَأْكُلُهُ إِلَّا الْخَاطِئُونَ
Which none but the hellish eat."
39. فَلَا أُقْسِمُ بِمَا تُبْصِرُونَ

40. وَمَا لَا تُبْصِرُونَ
And what you do not see,
41. إِنَّهُ لَقَوْلُ رَسُولٍ كَرِيمٍ
That this is indeed the word of the noble Messenger,
42. وَمَا هُوَ بِقَوْلِ شَاعِرٍ ۚ قَلِيلًا مَّا تُؤْمِنُونَ
And not the word of a poet. How little is it that you believe!
43. وَلَا بِقَوْلِ كَاهِنٍ ۚ قَلِيلًا مَّا تَذَكَّرُونَ
Nor is it the word of a soothsayer. Little is it that you reflect!
44. تَنزِيلٌ مِّن رَّبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ
It has been sent down by the Lord of all the worlds.
45. وَلَوْ تَقَوَّلَ عَلَيْنَا بَعْضَ الْأَقَاوِيلِ
Had he attributed falsely any words to Us,
46. لَأَخَذْنَا مِنْهُ بِالْيَمِينِ
We would have seized him by his right hand,
47. ثُمَّ لَقَطَعْنَا مِنْهُ الْوَتِينَ
Then cut off his aorta,
48. فَمَا مِنكُم مِّنْ أَحَدٍ عَنْهُ حَاجِزِينَ
And not one of you would have been able to stop (Us).
49. وَإِنَّهُ لَتَذْكِرَةٌ لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ
It is really a reminder for those who fear God and follow the straight path.

It is surely the nemesis of unbelievers.
52. وَإِنَّهُ لَحَقُّ الْيَقِينِ
And He, He is indeed the ultimate Reality.
53. فَسَبِّحْ بِاسْمِ رَبِّكَ الْعَظِيمِ
So glorify your Lord, the most supreme.
