Dispatched (Al-Mursalaat)
50 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Backbiter (Al-Hummazah) before Q (Qaaf)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
I CALL TO WITNESS those who are sent consecutively, (1) storming tempestuously (2) And those that revive by quickening, (3) thus separating [right and wrong] with all clarity, (4) And those [angels] who deliver a message (5) to provide excuses for some and to give warnings to others: (6) that which you have been promised shall be fulfilled. (7) Thus, [it will come to pass] when the stars are effaced, (8) and when the sky is rent asunder, (9) And when the mountains are blown away (10) And when the messengers' time has come... (11) For which day were they appointed? (12) For the Day of Decision. (13) Would that you knew what the Day of Decision is! (14) Woe on that Day to those that give the lie to the Truth! (15) Did We not destroy [so many of] those [sinners] of olden days? (16) Then caused the latter folk to follow after? (17) Thus do We deal with the sinful ones. (18) Woe on that day to the rejecters. (19) Did We not create you from a liquid disdained? (20) Which We placed in a depository safe. (21) until an appointed time? (22) See that We had the power to do so. Great indeed is Our power to do what We will. (23) Woe that day unto those who cry it lies! (24) Did We not make the earth a receptacle, (25) for both the living and the dead? (26) Set We not therein soaring mountains? Sated you with sweetest water? (27) Woe, that Day, to the deniers. (28) (It will be said:) "Depart ye to that which ye used to reject as false! (29) "Depart ye to a Shadow (of smoke ascending) in three columns, (30) (Which yet is) no relief nor shelter from the flame. (31) Verily! It (Hell) throws sparks (huge) as Al-Qasr [a fort or a Qasr (huge log of wood)], (32) Seeming like yellow camels. (33) Woe that day unto those who cry it lies! (34) This is a day in which they will not be able to speak. (35) nor be allowed to proffer excuses! (36) Woe that Day to the deniers (of the Day of Resurrection)! (37) That is the Day of Judgment. We will bring you together with all the ancient peoples. (38) If now ye have any craft, try that craft upon Me. (39) Woe unto the repudiators on that day! (40)
