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
CONSIDER the winds that scatter the dust far and wide, (1) by the clouds which are heavily loaded with water, (2) And those that glide with ease (upon the sea) (3) And those who distribute (it) by command, (4) surely what you are being warned against is true, (5) The Judgement will indeed take place. (6) The heavens webbed-with-tracks is witness (7) Verily, [O men,] you are deeply at variance as to what to believe: (8) He is turned away from it who would be turned away. (9) They but destroy themselves, they who are given to guessing at what they cannot ascertain (10) they who blunder along, in ignorance lost (11) they who [mockingly] ask, "When is that Day of Judgment to be?" (12) Upon the day when they shall be tried at the Fire: (13) Taste your burning: this is that which ye sought to be hastened. (14) Surely those who fear God and follow the straight path will be amidst gardens and fresh springs of water, (15) joyously receiving what their Lord will have granted them. Verily they did good works before (the coming of this Day): (16) They used to sleep but little in the night. (17) And used to seek forgiveness before dawn. (18) And in their wealth and possessions (was remembered) the right of the (needy,) him who asked, and him who (for some reason) was prevented (from asking). (19) And in the earth are portents for those whose faith is sure. (20) There is also evidence of the Truth within your own selves. Will you then not see? (21) And in the heaven is your sustenance and what you are threatened with. (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)
