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, most benevolent, ever-merciful
By (the winds) that scatter dust. (1) And those that lift and bear away heavy weights; (2) by the ships which smoothly sail on the oceans, (3) and execute the great task of apportioning (rainfall): (4) Undoubtedly, the promise you are given is surely true. (5) and the recompense shall surely happen. (6) By heaven with all its tracks (7) Indeed, you are in differing speech. (8) Turned aside therefrom is who is turned aside. (9) Destroyed are the falsifiers (10) who are heedless in the immersion. (11) They ask, “When will be the Day of Judgement?” (12) It will be on the day when they will be roasted in the fire. (13) [And will be told], "Taste your torment. This is that for which you were impatient." (14) The pious ones will live amidst gardens and springs, (15) Taking that which their Lord giveth them; for lo! aforetime they were doers of good; (16) They slept little in the night, (17) praying at dawn for God's pardon, (18) And in their properties there was the right of the beggar, and the Mahrum (the poor who does not ask the others). (19) On the earth, and in yourselves, (20) and also in your own selves. Do you not see? (21) In the heavens there is your sustenance and that which you were promised (Paradise). (22) By the Lord of the heavens and the earth, this is certainly true even as you speak. (23)
