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 Gracious, Most Merciful
By the winds which carry dust particles, (1) and the burden-bearers (2) and those that speed along with gentle ease, (3) And those who distribute (it) by command, (4) What you are promised is certainly true: (5) and the recompense shall surely happen. (6) By the heaven full of paths, (7) surely you are deeply at variance [as to what to believe] -- (8) though only those who are averse to the Truth will turn away from (believing in it). (9) Woe to the liars (10) Who are under a cover of heedlessness (think not about the gravity of the Hereafter), (11) They ask: "When is the Day of Judgement?" -- (12) (It will be) a Day when they will be tried (i.e. burnt) over the Fire! (13) (And told:) "Taste your punishment. This is what you were trying to hasten." (14) Indeed the pious are among Gardens and water springs. (15) receiving their reward from their Lord. They had been righteous people before the Day of Judgment. (16) They used to sleep but little of the night, (17) And in the hour of early dawn, they (were found) praying for Forgiveness; (18) and [would assign] in all that they possessed a due share unto such as might ask [for help] and such as might suffer privation. (19) There are many Signs on earth for those of sure faith, (20) just as [there are signs thereof] within your own selves: can you not, then, see? (21) And in the heaven is your sustenance and what you are threatened with. (22) Then, by the Lord of heaven and earth, this is the very Truth, as much as the fact that ye can speak intelligently to each other. (23)
