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
I swear by the wind that scatters far and wide, (1) and those that bear the burden [of the rain], (2) And those [ships] sailing with ease (3) And the angels who distribute the affair. (4) Verily, that which you are promised is true indeed, (5) And verily the Requital is surely to befall. (6) By the heaven full of paths. (7) Certainly, you have different ideas (about Muhammad SAW and the Quran). (8) He is made to turn away from it who is (himself) averse. (9) Cursed be the liars, (10) Who are within a flood [of confusion] and heedless. (11) They ask: "When is the Day of Judgement?" -- (12) (It will be) a Day when they will be tried (i.e. burnt) over the Fire! (13) "Taste ye your trial! This is what ye used to ask to be hastened!" (14) The pious ones will live amidst gardens and springs, (15) joyously receiving what their Lord will have granted them. Verily they did good works before (the coming of this Day): (16) They slept but a little at night, (17) And in the hours before dawn they would ask forgiveness, (18) And in their properties there was the right of the beggar, and the Mahrum (the poor who does not ask the others). (19) AND ON EARTH there are signs [of God's existence, visible] to all who are endowed with inner certainty, (20) And in yourselves. Then will you not see? (21) In heaven is your sustenance, and also that which you are promised. (22) By the Lord of the heaven and the earth it is sure, even as it is a fact that ye are speaking. (23)
