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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
By the winds which scatter dust, (1) And those that lift and bear away heavy weights; (2) And those that glide with ease (upon the sea) (3) then by the distributors (angels), ordered; (4) Verily that wherewith ye are threatened is surely true. (5) The Judgement will indeed take place. (6) CONSIDER the firmament full of starry paths! (7) Indeed, you are in differing speech. (8) From which only he turns who is turned away. (9) Woe to the liars (10) Those who are in heedlessness neglectful. (11) They ask: "When is the Day of Judgement?" -- (12) Upon the day when they shall be tried at the Fire: (13) "Taste you your trial (burning)! This is what you used to ask to be hastened!" (14) Surely those who fear God and follow the straight path will be amidst gardens and fresh springs of water, (15) receiving their reward from their Lord. They had been righteous people before the Day of Judgment. (16) they would lie asleep during but a small part of the night, (17) And in the hour of early dawn, they (were found) praying for Forgiveness; (18) And in their property was a portion due to him who begs and to him who is denied (good). (19) In the earth there is evidence (of the Truth) for those who have strong faith. (20) just as [there are signs thereof] within your own selves: can you not, then, see? (21) And in the heaven is your provision and that which ye are promised. (22) So by the Lord of heaven and earth, it is as true as your speech. (23)
