Drivers of the Winds (Al-Dhaareyaat)
60 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Dunes (Al-Ahqaaf) before Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
By the winds which carry dust particles, 1 And those that bear the burden (of the rain) 2 And those that flow with ease and gentleness; 3 And those that distribute and apportion by Command;- 4 surely that you are promised is true, 5 And verily the Requital is surely to befall. 6 And by oath of the decorated heaven. 7 Verily ye are in a divided opinion. 8 From which only he turns who is turned away. 9 Woe to the falsehood-mongers,- 10 Those who are in heedlessness neglectful. 11 They ask: When is the Day of Judgment? 12 The day they will be burnt in the Fire, 13 (and be told): “Taste your ordeal! This is what you were seeking to hasten.” 14 Surely those who fear God and follow the straight path will be amidst gardens and fresh springs of water, 15 joyously receiving what their Lord will have granted them. Verily they did good works before (the coming of this Day): 16 They slept little in the night, 17 And ere the dawning of each day would seek forgiveness, 18 and in their wealth was a share for whosoever asked and for whosoever was prevented. 19 For those with sure belief there are signs in the earth, 20 and also in your own selves. Do you not see? 21 And in heaven is your Sustenance, as (also) that which ye are promised. 22 Then, by the Lord of heaven and earth, this is the very Truth, as much as the fact that ye can speak intelligently to each other. 23
