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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
CONSIDER the winds that scatter the dust far and wide, (1) And (the clouds) that bear heavy weight of water; (2) Then those (ships) that glide easily, (3) Then by oath of those which distribute by the command. (4) What you are promised is certainly true: (5) the Judgement will surely come to pass -- (6) CONSIDER the firmament full of starry paths! (7) surely, you are in different sayings, (8) and are turned away from him who is turned. (9) Destroyed are the falsifiers (10) Those who have forgotten in a state of intoxication. (11) They ask: when is the Day of Requital coming? (12) It will be the Day when they shall be scourged by the Fire (13) (And told:) "Taste your punishment. This is what you were trying to hasten." (14) As to the Righteous, they will be in the midst of Gardens and Springs, (15) Taking what their Lord gives them; surely they were before that, the doers of good. (16) They used to sleep only a little during the night. (17) and would ask for forgiveness at dawn, (18) And the beggar and the destitute had a share in their wealth. (19) AND ON EARTH there are signs [of God's existence, visible] to all who are endowed with inner certainty, (20) And in your own souls (too); will you not then see? (21) And in heaven is [the source of] your sustenance [on earth] and [of] all that you are promised [for your life after death]: (22) So by the Lord of heaven and earth, it is as true as your speech. (23)
