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 Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
By those [winds] scattering [dust] dispersing (1) And (the clouds) that bear heavy weight of water; (2) And those that glide with ease (upon the sea) (3) And those that distribute and apportion by Command;- (4) surely what you are being warned against is true, (5) the Judgement will surely come to pass -- (6) By the heaven containing pathways, (7) surely, you are in different sayings, (8) He is made to turn away from it who is (himself) averse. (9) Accursed be the conjecturers (10) and who wander in the abyss of confusion. (11) They ask: When is the Day of Judgment? (12) On that Day they shall be tried at the Fire, (13) (And it will be said unto them): Taste your torment (which ye inflicted). This is what ye sought to hasten. (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 were in the habit of sleeping but little by night, (17) And ere the dawning of each day would seek forgiveness, (18) And in their wealth the beggar and the outcast had due share. (19) And on the earth are signs for those who have Faith with certainty, (20) There is also evidence of the Truth within your own selves. Will you then not see? (21) And in the heaven is your provision and that which ye are promised. (22) for, by the Sustainer of heaven and earth, this [life after death] is the very truth - as true as that you are endowed with speech! (23)
