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 Beneficent, the Merciful
By the winds which carry dust particles, (1) Then those clouds bearing the load (of minute things in space). (2) and those that speed along with gentle ease, (3) Then those (angels who) distribute blessings by Our command; (4) that what you are promised is certainly true (5) the Judgement will surely come to pass -- (6) By the heaven full of paths, (7) Lo! ye, forsooth, are of various opinion (concerning the truth). (8) Turned aside therefrom is who is turned aside. (9) They but destroy themselves, they who are given to guessing at what they cannot ascertain (10) Who are under a cover of heedlessness (think not about the gravity of the Hereafter), (11) They ask, "When it will be the Day of Judgment?" (12) (It will be) a Day when they will be tried (i.e. burnt) over the Fire! (13) And it will be said to them, “Taste your own roasting; this is what you were impatient for.” (14) Lo! those who keep from evil will dwell amid gardens and watersprings, (15) Receiving what is given them by their Lord. They were surely the virtuous before this. (16) They used to sleep but little in the night. (17) and asked for forgiveness in the early morning. (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 ON EARTH there are signs [of God's existence, visible] to all who are endowed with inner certainty, (20) And in your own selves; so can you not perceive? (21) In the sky is your provision and that which you are promised. (22) And by the Lord of the heavens and the earth! it is most surely the truth, just as you do speak. (23)
