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, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
I CALL TO witness those who scatter (dust) by dispersing, (1) then the bearers of weight (the clouds), (2) And (the ships) that float with ease and gentleness; (3) And those that distribute and apportion by Command;- (4) Verily, that which you are promised (i.e. Resurrection in the Hereafter and receiving the reward or punishment of good or bad deeds, etc.) is surely true. (5) and the Judgement shall doubtlessly take place. (6) The heavens webbed-with-tracks is witness (7) You are surely caught in contradictions., (8) Turned aside therefrom is who is turned aside. (9) Slain be those who mould from their imaginations. (10) Who are lost in deception. (11) They ask: When is the Day of Judgment? (12) On the Day of Judgment they will be punished by the fire (13) [and will be told:] "Taste this your trial! It is this that you were so hastily asking for!" (14) Verily, the Muttaqun (pious - see V. 2:2) will be in the midst of Gardens and Springs (in the Paradise), (15) Taking joy in the things which their Lord has given them. Verily, they were before this Muhsinun (good-doers - see V. 2:112). (16) they used to sleep but little by night, (17) And in the hour of early dawn, they (were found) praying for Forgiveness; (18) and [would assign] in all that they possessed a due share unto such as might ask [for help] and such as might suffer privation. (19) There are signs in the earth for those who are firm in their faith, (20) And within yourselves. Can you not perceive? (21) There is in the heavens your sustenance, and whatever has been promised you. (22) Then, by the Lord of the heaven and the earth, it is the truth (i.e. what has been promised to you), just as it is the truth that you can speak. (23)
