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 the scatterers (the wind) scattering, (1) by the clouds which are heavily loaded with water, (2) Then those (ships) that glide easily, (3) and distributing the command of God at His behest! (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) And the judgment must most surely come about. (6) By the heaven with its numerous forms: (7) Most surely you are at variance with each other in what you say, (8) though only those who are averse to the Truth will turn away from (believing in it). (9) Woe to the falsehood-mongers,- (10) who flounder in the depths of ignorance. (11) They ask; "When will be the Day of Recompense?" (12) [It will be] a Day when they will be sorely tried by the fire, (13) "Taste your trial. This is what you sought to hasten." (14) Surely those who guard (against evil) shall be in gardens and fountains. (15) Taking joy in the things which their Lord gives them, because, before then, they lived a good life. (16) They were in the habit of sleeping but little by night, (17) and would pray for forgiveness from their innermost hearts; (18) And in their property was a portion due to him who begs and to him who is denied (good). (19) And in the earth are portents for those whose faith is sure. (20) and also in yourselves. Can you not see? (21) And in the heaven lies your sustenance, and the promise you are given. (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)
