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 Dispenser of Grace
By oath of those which carry away while dispersing. (1) which carry clouds laden with water, (2) And those that glide with ease (upon the sea) (3) And those that distribute and apportion by Command;- (4) What you are threatened with is most surely true, (5) and the Day of Judgment will inevitably take place. (6) By heaven with all its tracks (7) Truly ye are in a doctrine discordant, (8) perverted in his views thereon is he who would deceive himself! (9) Woe to the falsehood-mongers,- (10) and who wander in the abyss of confusion. (11) They ask, “When will be the Day of Judgement?” (12) (It is) the day on which they shall be tried at the fire. (13) (And told:) "Taste your punishment. This is what you were trying to hasten." (14) Surely those who fear God and follow the straight path will be amidst gardens and fresh springs of water, (15) Accepting what their Lord has given them. Indeed, they were before that doers of good. (16) They were in the habit of sleeping but little by night, (17) And in the hours before dawn, they were (found) asking (Allah) for forgiveness, (18) and in their wealth there was a rightful share for him who would ask and for the destitute. (19) And on the earth are signs for the certain [in faith] (20) There is also evidence of the Truth within your own selves. Will you then not see? (21) And in the heaven is your sustenance and what you are threatened with. (22) for, by the Sustainer of heaven and earth, this [life after death] is the very truth - as true as that you are endowed with speech! (23)
