In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

The Hãqqah![1] What is the Hãqqah?[2] And what will make you understand what the Hãqqah is?[3] The Thamüd and the ‘Ad people denied the striking calamity.[4] As for Thamüd, they were destroyed by the Thunderbolt.[5] As for 'Ad they were destroyed by a furious windstorm[6] - which He let loose on them for seven nights and eight successive days. Had you been there, you would have seen them lying prostrate as though they were hollow trunks of the palm-trees.[7] Now, do you see any of them alive?[8] Fir'on (Pharaoh) and those before him, and the inhabitants of the overthrown cities also committed similar sins[9] and disobeyed the Rasools of their Rabb, so He gripped them with a tight grip.[10] Just consider the great flood of Nüh, when the water rose high, We carried you (O mankind) in the floating Ark,[11] that We may make that event a warning for you so that all attentive ears may retain its memory.[12] As for the dooms- day, it shall come, when the Trumpet will be blown with a single blast[13] and the earth with all its mountains will be lifted up and crushed into pieces with a single stroke[14] - On that day the Great Event will come to pass,[15] heaven shall split asunder, and the day shall seem flimsy.[16] The angels will stand all around and eight of them will be carrying the Throne of your Rabb above them.[17] That shall be the day when you will be brought before your Rabb, and none of your secrets shall remain hidden.[18]


Description of the Day of Resurrection and the Day of Judgment

Then he, who will be given his Book of Deeds in his right hand, will say: “Here it is, read my Book of deeds!”[19] I knew that I would certainly face my reckoning."[20] So he will have a life of pleasure,[21] in a lofty garden,[22] with clusters of fruit within his reach.[23] We shall say to him: “Eat and drink to your heart's content; this is a reward for what you did in the days gone by."[24] While he, who will be given his Book of Deeds in his left hand, will say: “Woe to me, would that I had not been given my Book of Deeds[25] nor known what my account was![26] Would that my death had ended all![27] My wealth had availed me nothing,[28] and my authority has gone away from me."[29] We shall say: “Seize him and put a chain around his neck,[30] then cast him in the blazing fire,[31] then fasten him with a chain seventy cubits long.[32] For he did not believe in Allah, the Most High,[33] nor did he care to feed the poor.[34] Today he neither has a true friend here,[35] nor any food except the pus from the washing of wounds,[36] which none but the wrongdoers eat."[37]


Righteous people and their reward

Sinful people and their punishment

Nay! I swear by all that you can see,[38] and all that you cannot see,[39] that this is the word of a noble Rasool.[40] It is not the word of a poet - little is it that you believe,[41] - nor is it the word of a soothsayer - little admonition is that you take.[42] This is a revelation from the Rabb of the worlds.[43] Had he (Muhammad) invented false statements concerning Us,[44] We would certainly have seized him by his right hand[45] then cut off his main artery,[46] and none of you could prevent it![47] Surely this Qur’an is a reminder to the Godfearing.[48] We know that there are some among you who deny it,[49] and for such disbelievers it is indeed a cause of despair.[50] Yet surely it is the absolute truth.[51] So glorify the name of your Rabb, the Most High.[52]


The Qur'an is the word of Allah and not of the Prophet, and is a reminder for those who fear Allah (God)

Major Issues, Divine Law and Guidance:

* Description of the Day of Resurrection and the Day of Judgement.
* Righteous people and their reward.
* Sinful people and their punishment.
* Al-Qur’an is the word of Allah and not of the Prophet, and that it is a reminder for those who fear Allah (God).

The first section is about the Hereafter and the second about the Qur’an being a revelation from Allah and the Prophet being a true Rasool of Allah. The first section opens with the assertion that the coming of the Resurrection and the occurrence of the Hereafter is a truth which is destined to take place inevitably. The real object why Allah has destined a second life for mankind after the present worldly life is described depicting a scene from the Day of Judgement when all men shall appear in the court of their Rabb where no secret of theirs shall remain hidden and each man’s record will be placed in his hand. Those who spent their lives in the world with the realization that one day they would have to render an account of their deeds before their Rabb, and who had worked righteously in the world and provided beforehand for their well being in the Hereafter, will rejoice when they see that they have been acquitted and blessed with the eternal bliss of paradise. On the contrary, those who neither recognized the rights of Allah, nor discharged the rights of men, will have no one to save them from the punishment of Allah, and they will be cast into hell.

In the second section the disbelievers of Makkah are addressed and told: “You think this Qur’an is the word of a poet or soothsayer, whereas it is a Revelation sent down by Allah, which is being presented by His noble Rasool. The Rasool by himself has no power to add or delete a word in it. If he forges something of his own composition into it, We will cut off his jugular vein."
