Drivers of the Winds (Al-Dhaareyaat)
60 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Dunes (Al-Ahqaaf) before Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
I swear by the wind that scatters far and wide, (1) then the bearers of weight (the clouds), (2) Then those (ships) that glide easily, (3) And those that distribute and apportion by Command;- (4) Indeed, what you are promised is true. (5) And indeed, the recompense is to occur. (6) By the heaven full of paths, (7) surely, you are in different sayings, (8) From which only he turns who is turned away. (9) Perish the conjecturers (10) who are steeped in ignorance and heedlessness. (11) They ask, "When is the Day of Recompense?" (12) It will be the Day when they shall be scourged by the Fire (13) Taste your persecution! this is what you would hasten on. (14) Surely the godfearing shall be among gardens and fountains (15) Accepting what their Lord has given them. Indeed, they were before that doers of good. (16) They slept little in the night, (17) And in the hours before dawn they would ask forgiveness, (18) And from their properties was [given] the right of the [needy] petitioner and the deprived. (19) There are signs in the earth for those who are firm in their faith, (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) So by oath of the Lord of the heavens and the earth, this Qur’an is the Truth, in the same language that you speak. (23)
