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 Compassionate
I swear by the wind that scatters far and wide, (1) then the bearers of weight (the clouds), (2) and the smooth runners (3) and distributing the command of God at His behest! (4) surely what you are being warned against is true, (5) and surely the Doom is about to fall! (6) The heavens webbed-with-tracks is witness (7) your ideas are confused. (8) From which only he turns who is turned away. (9) Doomed are the conjecturers (10) Those who have forgotten in a state of intoxication. (11) 'When will the Day of Judgement be' they ask. (12) On that Day they shall be tried at the Fire, (13) And it will be said to them, “Taste your own roasting; this is what you were impatient for.” (14) Surely those who fear God and follow the straight path will be amidst gardens and fresh springs of water, (15) taking whatsoever their Lord has given them; they were good-doers before that. (16) Little of the night they were wont to slumber. (17) and would ask for forgiveness at dawn, (18) and in their wealth there was a rightful share for him who would ask and for the destitute. (19) And in the earth there are signs for those who are sure, (20) And also in your own selves. Behold ye not? (21) There is in the heavens your sustenance, and whatever has been promised you. (22) So, by the Lord of the heaven and the earth, this is certainly true, as true as the fact of your speaking. (23)
