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 Compassionate, the Merciful
By the winds which carry dust particles, (1) And (the clouds) that bear heavy weight of water; (2) And the ships that glide with ease. (3) and distributing the command of God at His behest! (4) Undoubtedly, the promise you are given is surely true. (5) And verily, the Recompense is sure to happen. (6) By the heaven full of paths, (7) your ideas are confused. (8) and are turned away from him who is turned. (9) Woe to the liars (10) who are steeped in ignorance and heedlessness. (11) They ask, "When it will be the Day of Judgment?" (12) Upon the day when they shall be tried at the Fire: (13) Taste your persecution! this is what you would hasten on. (14) Surely the godfearing shall be among gardens and fountains (15) Taking joy in the things which their Lord has given them. Verily, they were before this Muhsinun (good-doers - see V. 2:112). (16) They were in the habit of sleeping but little by night, (17) and asked for forgiveness in the early morning. (18) and sharing their possessions with the beggars and the deprived. (19) In the earth are signs for those having sure faith; (20) And within yourselves. Can you not perceive? (21) And in the heaven is your sustenance and what you are threatened with. (22) By the Lord of the heaven and the earth it is sure, even as it is a fact that ye are speaking. (23)
