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
I swear by the wind that scatters far and wide, (1) which carry clouds laden with water, (2) And those that flow with ease and gentleness; (3) and execute the great task of apportioning (rainfall): (4) Undoubtedly, the promise you are given is surely true. (5) And the judgment must most surely come about. (6) The heavens webbed-with-tracks is witness (7) Truly ye are in a doctrine discordant, (8) From which only he turns who is turned away. (9) Perish the conjecturers (10) who flounder in the depths of ignorance. (11) They ask, "When will be the Day of Judgment and Justice?" (12) [It will be] a Day when they will be sorely tried by the fire, (13) and will be told, "Suffer the torment which you wanted to experience immediately". (14) As to the Righteous, they will be in the midst of Gardens and Springs, (15) taking whatsoever their Lord has given them; they were good-doers before that. (16) They used to sleep but little by night [invoking their Lord (Allah) and praying, with fear and hope]. (17) And in the morning they asked forgiveness. (18) and [would assign] in all that they possessed a due share unto such as might ask [for help] and such as might suffer privation. (19) There are signs in the earth for those who are firm in their faith, (20) And (also) in yourselves. Can ye then not see? (21) And in the heaven is your provision and that which ye are promised. (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)
