Drivers of the Winds (Al-Dhaareyaat)
60 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Dunes (Al-Ahqaaf) before Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By those that winnow with a winnowing (1) by the clouds which are heavily loaded with water, (2) And (the ships) that float with ease and gentleness; (3) and distributing the command of God at His behest! (4) What you are threatened with is most surely true, (5) And the judgment must most surely come about. (6) By the heaven full of paths, (7) surely, you are in different sayings, (8) He is made to turn away from it who is (himself) averse. (9) May the conjecturers perish, (10) Who are lost in deception. (11) They ask: “When will the Day of Judgement be?” (12) It will be the Day whereon in the Fire they will be burned (13) 'Taste your trial. This is what you have sought to hasten' (14) Surely those who guard (against evil) shall be in gardens and fountains. (15) Accepting the rewards given by their Lord; they were indeed virtuous before this. (16) They used to sleep but little in the night. (17) and in the mornings they would ask for forgiveness; (18) And in their wealth and possessions (was remembered) the right of the (needy,) him who asked, and him who (for some reason) was prevented (from asking). (19) And in the earth are signs for those who are certain. (20) and in your selves; what, do you not see? (21) And in heaven is your provision, and that you are promised. (22) By the Lord of the heaven and the earth, it is certainly the truth. It is as true as your ability to speak. (23)
