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 Gracious, Most Merciful
CONSIDER the winds that scatter the dust far and wide, (1) And the clouds bearing a load. (2) And those that flow with ease and gentleness; (3) by the angels which distribute the affairs, (4) Verily, that which you are promised is true indeed, (5) and the recompense shall surely happen. (6) By the heaven with its numerous forms: (7) Verily ye are in a divided opinion. (8) Only those who are destined to revert, are reverted from it. (9) Perish the conjecturers (10) who are dazed in perplexity (11) They ask: "When is 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) The pious ones will live amidst gardens and springs, (15) receiving what their Lord will give them because before this they were gooddoers. (16) Little of the night they were wont to slumber. (17) And in the hour of early dawn, they (were found) praying for Forgiveness; (18) And the beggar and the destitute had a share in their wealth. (19) In the earth there is evidence (of the Truth) for those who have strong faith. (20) And also in your own selves. Behold ye not? (21) And in the heaven is your providence and that which ye are promised; (22) Then, by the Lord of heaven and earth, this is the very Truth, as much as the fact that ye can speak intelligently to each other. (23)
