[Verses 38 to 52]: False allegations refuted:
69: (Al-Haqqah: The Sure Truth)
(Revealed at Makkah:
2 sections; 52 verses)
38 But nay! I swear by that which you
39 And that
which you see not!
40 Surely, it is
the word of an honoured Messenger,
41 And it is not
the word of a poet. Little is it that you
42 Nor the word
of a soothsayer. Little is it that you mind!
43 It is a
revelation from the Lord of the worlds.
44 And if he had
fabricated against Us certain sayings,
45 We would
certainly have seized him by the right hand,
46 Then cut off
his hearts vein.
47 And not one
of you could have withheld Us from him.a
48 And surely it
is a Reminder for the dutiful.
49 And We
certainly know that some of you are rejecters.
50 And it is
indeed a (source of) grief to the
51 And surely it
is the certain Truth.a
52 So glorify
the name of thy Lord, the incomparably Great.
This verse and the three preceding it show that one who
fabricates Divine revelation does not prosper. Compare Deut.
18:20, where the prophecy of the advent of a Prophet like
Moses is followed by the words: "But the prophet which shall
presume to speak a word in My name, which I have not
commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of
other gods, even that prophet shall die". Jesus words
in Matt. 7:19: "Every tree that bringeth not forth good
fruit is hewn down and cast into the .re", after comparing a
false prophet with a corrupt tree that does not bring forth
good fruit, point to a like effect. [Back

Because the punishment of which it warns them must
overtake them. [Back

The haqq al-yaqin, true certainty or certain
truth of this verse, is the same as al-haqqah of
the opening verse. The ultimate triumph of Truth is a
certain truth. [Back
