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) And those that bear the burden (of the rain) (2) and those that speed along with gentle ease, (3) And those (angels) who distribute (provisions, rain, and other blessings) by (Allah's) 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) the Judgement will surely come to pass -- (6) By the heaven full of paths. (7) Verily, [O men,] you are deeply at variance as to what to believe: (8) Through which are deluded (away from the Truth) such as would be deluded. (9) Accursed be the conjecturers (10) Those who (flounder) heedless in a flood 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) "Taste ye your trial! This is what ye used to ask to be hastened!" (14) [But,] behold, the God-conscious will find themselves amid gardens and springs, (15) joyously receiving what their Lord will have granted them. Verily they did good works before (the coming of this Day): (16) They used to sleep only a little during the night. (17) And in the dawns they prayed for forgiveness. (18) and in their wealth there was a rightful share for him who would ask and for the destitute. (19) And in the earth are signs for those who are certain. (20) just as [there are signs thereof] within your own selves: can 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) 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)
