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 Beneficent, the Merciful
By the winds which scatter dust, (1) And those that lift and bear away heavy weights; (2) and those that speed along with gentle ease, (3) And those who distribute (blessings) by command, (4) Verily, that which you are promised is true indeed, (5) And verily the Requital is surely to befall. (6) The heavens webbed-with-tracks is witness (7) Certainly, you have different ideas (about Muhammad SAW and the Quran). (8) From which only he turns who is turned away. (9) Woe to the falsehood-mongers,- (10) Those who have forgotten in a state of intoxication. (11) They ask, "When will the Day of Judgement come?" (12) (It will be) a Day when they will be tried (i.e. burnt) over the Fire! (13) (And told:) "Taste your punishment. This is what you were trying to hasten." (14) Surely the God-fearing will find themselves in the midst of gardens and springs. (15) enjoying all that their Sustainer will have granted them [because,] verily, they were doers of good in the past: (16) They slept little in the night, (17) And in the hour of early dawn, they (were found) praying for Forgiveness; (18) and sharing their possessions with the beggars and the deprived. (19) AND ON EARTH there are signs [of God's existence, visible] to all who are endowed with inner certainty, (20) And within yourselves. Can you not perceive? (21) There is in the heavens your sustenance, and whatever has been promised you. (22) And by the Lord of the heavens and the earth! it is most surely the truth, just as you do speak. (23)
