Dispatched (Al-Mursalaat)
50 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Backbiter (Al-Hummazah) before Q (Qaaf)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
I swear by the emissary winds, sent one after another (for men's benefit), 1 And those that strike violently, 2 Consider these [messages] that spread [the truth] far and wide, 3 then winnow them thoroughly, 4 Then I swear by the angels who bring down the revelation, 5 to excuse some and warn others: 6 surely, that which you have been promised is about to fall! 7 When the stars lose their light, 8 and the sky is rent asunder, 9 The mountains reduced to dust and blown away, 10 And when the Messengers are gathered to their time appointed; 11 For what Day was it postponed? 12 For the Day of Decision. 13 And what shall teach thee what is the Day of Decision? 14 Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth! 15 Have We not destroyed the earlier generations? 16 So shall We make later generations to follow them. 17 Thus do We deal with the guilty. 18 Woe on that Day to those that give the lie to the Truth! 19 Did We not create you of a mean water, 20 And We placed it in a firm lodging 21 For a period (of gestation), determined (according to need)? 22 So We proportion it-- how well are We at proportioning (things). 23 Woe that day unto those who cry it lies! 24 Have We not made the earth a receptacle. 25 Both for the living and the dead, 26 and have We not set on it proud, firm mountains, and given you sweet water to drink? 27 Woe on that Day to those who belied it! 28 “Move towards what you used to deny!” 29 Proceed to that shadow, rising in three columns 30 wherein there is neither shade, nor freeing from the blazing flames 31 It will throw out sparks as logs of wood 32 As if they were tawny camels. 33 Alas the woe that day for those who deny! 34 On that Day they will be speechless, 35 nor will they be allowed to proffer excuses. 36 Woe, that Day, to the deniers. 37 That will be a Day of Sorting out! We shall gather you together and those before (you)! 38 If you have any plans, use them. 39 Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth! 40
