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 benevolent, ever-merciful
By those [winds] scattering [dust] dispersing (1) and those that carry the burden [of heavy clouds,] (2) and those that speed along with gentle ease, (3) And those [angels] apportioning [each] matter, (4) What you are promised is certainly true: (5) and the recompense shall surely happen. (6) CONSIDER the firmament full of starry paths! (7) surely you speak at variance, (8) From which only he turns who is turned away. (9) Death to those whose opinions are merely baseless conjectures. (10) and who wander in the abyss of confusion. (11) They ask, "When will the Day of Judgement come?" (12) (It will be) a Day when they will be tried (i.e. burnt) over the Fire! (13) 'Taste your trial. This is what you have sought to hasten' (14) Surely those who fear God and follow the straight path will be amidst gardens and fresh springs of water, (15) Accepting the rewards given by their Lord; they were indeed virtuous before this. (16) They slept little in the night, (17) and in the mornings they would ask for forgiveness; (18) And in their properties there was the right of the beggar, and the Mahrum (the poor who does not ask the others). (19) On the earth are signs for those of assured Faith, (20) And also in your ownselves. Will you not then see? (21) And in heaven is [the source of] your sustenance [on earth] and [of] all that you are promised [for your life after death]: (22) By the Lord of the heavens and the earth, this is certainly true even as you speak. (23)
