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 who bear the load (of rain), (2) and the smooth runners (3) and execute the great task of apportioning (rainfall): (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) And undoubtedly justice will surely be done. (6) By the Sky with (its) numerous Paths, (7) You are indeed in different opinions regarding this Qur’an. (8) Only those who are destined to revert, are reverted from it. (9) Doomed are the conjecturers (10) Those who are in heedlessness neglectful. (11) They ask, "When is the Day of Recompense?" (12) [It is] the Day they will be tormented over the Fire (13) (and be told): “Taste your ordeal! This is what you were seeking to hasten.” (14) The pious ones will live amidst gardens and springs, (15) Accepting the rewards given by their Lord; they were indeed virtuous before this. (16) They slept very little during the night (17) And every morning asked 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 on the earth there are signs for those who would be convinced. (20) And also in your ownselves. Will you not then see? (21) And in the heaven is your provision and that which ye are promised. (22) By the Lord of the heavens and the earth, this is certainly true even as you speak. (23)
