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 Merciful, the Compassionate
I swear by the wind that scatters far and wide, (1) by the clouds which are heavily loaded with water, (2) then the easy runners (the ships); (3) And those who distribute (it) by command, (4) What you are threatened with is most surely true, (5) And indeed, the recompense is to occur. (6) by the heaven full of tracks, (7) Verily ye are in a divided opinion. (8) Deluded away from the Qur'an is he who is deluded. (9) Doomed are the conjecturers (10) and who wander in the abyss of confusion. (11) They ask, "When is the Day of Recompense?" (12) It will be the Day whereon in the Fire they will be burned (13) (And told:) "Taste your punishment. This is what you were trying to hasten." (14) [But,] behold, the God-conscious will find themselves amid gardens and springs, (15) Taking joy in the things which their Lord has given them. Verily, they were before this Muhsinun (good-doers - see V. 2:112). (16) They used to sleep but little of the night, (17) and at dawn would ask forgiveness, (18) And in their property was a portion due to him who begs and to him who is denied (good). (19) And in the earth are portents for those whose faith is sure. (20) And in your own souls (too); will you not then see? (21) There is in the heavens your sustenance, and whatever has been promised you. (22) So, by the Lord of the heaven and the earth, this is certainly true, as true as the fact of your speaking. (23)
