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 Beneficent, the Merciful
By those that winnow with a winnowing (1) And (the clouds) that bear heavy weight of water; (2) And those [ships] sailing with ease (3) and those that apportion [the gift of life] at [God's] behest! (4) indeed, that which you are promised is true, (5) and the recompense shall surely happen. (6) By the heaven with its passages, (7) You are surely caught in contradictions., (8) he is turned away from [the truth] who is destined to be so turned away. (9) They but destroy themselves, they who are given to guessing at what they cannot ascertain (10) Those who have forgotten in a state of intoxication. (11) They ask: when is the Day of Requital coming? (12) It will be the Day when they shall be scourged by the Fire (13) [and will be told:] "Taste this your trial! It is this that you were so hastily asking for!" (14) Indeed, the righteous will be among gardens and springs, (15) joyously receiving what their Lord will have granted them. Verily they did good works before (the coming of this Day): (16) they would lie asleep during but a small part of the night, (17) praying at dawn for God's pardon, (18) and in their wealth there was a rightful share for him who would ask and for the destitute. (19) And on the earth there are signs for those who would be convinced. (20) And in your own souls (too); will you not then see? (21) And in the heaven is your provision and whatever you are promised. (22) And by the Lord of the heavens and the earth, it is the truth, even as (it is true) that ye speak. (23)
