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 Merciful, the Compassionate
I CALL TO witness those who scatter (dust) by dispersing, (1) and the burden-bearers (2) and those that speed along with gentle ease, (3) and those that apportion [the gift of life] at [God's] behest! (4) What you are promised is certainly true: (5) and the recompense shall surely happen. (6) By the heaven full of paths, (7) surely, you are in different sayings, (8) though only those who are averse to the Truth will turn away from (believing in it). (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) The day they will be burnt in the Fire, (13) (And told:) "Taste your punishment. This is what you were trying to hasten." (14) The righteous shall live among gardens and fountains, (15) receiving what their Lord will give them because before this they were gooddoers. (16) They were in the habit of sleeping but little by night, (17) And in the hours before dawn, they were (found) asking (Allah) for forgiveness, (18) In whose wealth the suppliant and the deprived had a share. (19) AND ON EARTH there are signs [of God's existence, visible] to all who are endowed with inner certainty, (20) just as [there are signs thereof] within your own selves: can you not, then, see? (21) And in the heaven is your provision and that which ye are promised. (22) So by the Lord of heaven and earth, it is as surely true as that you have speech. (23)
