Drivers of the Winds (Al-Dhaareyaat)
60 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Dunes (Al-Ahqaaf) before Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
CONSIDER the winds that scatter the dust far and wide, (1) which carry clouds laden with water, (2) by the ships which smoothly sail on the oceans, (3) And those that distribute and apportion by Command;- (4) Verily, that which you are promised (i.e. Resurrection in the Hereafter and receiving the reward or punishment of good or bad deeds, etc.) is surely true. (5) the Judgement will surely come to pass -- (6) By the Sky with (its) numerous Paths, (7) surely you are deeply at variance [as to what to believe] -- (8) Deluded away from the Qur'an is he who is deluded. (9) Cursed be the liars, (10) who are dazed in perplexity (11) They ask, "When will the Day of Judgement come?" (12) The day they will be burnt in the Fire, (13) [and will be told:] "Taste this your trial! It is this that you were so hastily asking for!" (14) Surely the godfearing shall be among gardens and fountains (15) Taking that which their Lord will vouchsafe unto hem. Verily they have been before that well-doers. (16) They slept but a little at night, (17) praying at dawn for God's pardon, (18) In whose wealth the suppliant and the deprived had a share. (19) On the earth are signs for those of assured Faith, (20) And also in your own selves. Behold ye not? (21) In the sky is your provision and that which you are promised. (22) So by oath of the Lord of the heavens and the earth, this Qur’an is the Truth, in the same language that you speak. (23)
