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 Most Merciful
By those that winnow with a winnowing (1) by the clouds which are heavily loaded with water, (2) And those [ships] sailing with ease (3) and those that apportion [the gift of life] at [God's] behest! (4) Indeed, what you are promised is true. (5) And indeed, the recompense is to occur. (6) By heaven with all its tracks (7) Verily, [O men,] you are deeply at variance as to what to believe: (8) he is turned away from [the truth] who is destined to be so turned away. (9) They but destroy themselves, they who are given to guessing at what they cannot ascertain (10) who are dazed in perplexity (11) asking, 'When shall be the Day of Doom?' (12) (It will be) a Day when they will be tried (i.e. burnt) over the Fire! (13) and will be told, "Suffer the torment which you wanted to experience immediately". (14) Lo! those who keep from evil will dwell amid gardens and watersprings, (15) Accepting the rewards given by their Lord; they were indeed virtuous before this. (16) Little of the night they were wont to slumber. (17) and at dawn would ask forgiveness, (18) and sharing their possessions with the beggars and the deprived. (19) There are signs in the earth for those who are firm in their faith, (20) And also in your own selves. Behold ye not? (21) And in the heaven is your provision and that which ye are promised. (22) By the Lord of the heaven and the earth, it is certainly the truth. It is as true as your ability to speak. (23)
