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 Compassionate, the Merciful
CONSIDER the winds that scatter the dust far and wide, (1) which carry clouds laden with water, (2) then the easy runners (the ships); (3) And the angels who distribute the affair. (4) Verily that wherewith ye are threatened is surely true. (5) and surely the Doom is about to fall! (6) By the Sky with (its) numerous Paths, (7) Truly ye are in a doctrine discordant, (8) From which only he turns who is turned away. (9) Cursed be the liars, (10) who are steeped in ignorance and heedlessness. (11) They ask: When is the Day of Judgment? (12) (It will be) a Day when they will be tried (and tested) 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) enjoying all that their Sustainer will have granted them [because,] verily, they were doers of good in the past: (16) They used to sleep but little of the night, (17) And in the dawns they prayed for forgiveness. (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 there are signs for those who are sure, (20) just as [there are signs thereof] within your own selves: can you not, then, see? (21) In heaven is your sustenance, and also that which you are promised. (22) By the Lord of the heaven and the earth it is sure, even as it is a fact that ye are speaking. (23)
