Dispatched (Al-Mursalaat)
50 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Backbiter (Al-Hummazah) before Q (Qaaf)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
CONSIDER these [messages,] sent forth in waves 1 By the raging hurricanes, 2 And those that revive by quickening, 3 Then by those that clearly differentiate the right and wrong. 4 and those (angels) dropping, reminding 5 To complete the argument or to warn. 6 Surely, what you are promised must come to pass. 7 When the stars are obliterated, 8 And when the sky is riven asunder, 9 And when the mountains are carried away by wind. 10 And when the messengers are brought unto their time appointed - 11 If one asks, "To which day have such calamitous events been postponed?" 12 For the Day of Decision. 13 And what will make you comprehend what the day of decision is? 14 Woe on that Day to those who belied it! 15 Did We not destroy the ancients, 16 and let the latter follow them? 17 Thus do We deal with the criminals. 18 Woe on that day unto the beliers! 19 Did We not create you from contemptible water? 20 Which We laid up in a safe abode 21 For a known term? 22 So We did measure, and We are the Best to measure (the things). 23 Woe on that Day to those who reject the truth! 24 Have We not made the earth a repository 25 For the living and the dead. 26 Have We not placed high mountains upon it and filled you with sweet water? 27 Woe on that Day unto those who give the lie to the truth! 28 Proceed to that which you denied. 29 Walk on to the covering having three branches, 30 which neither gives shade nor protects one from the flames. 31 Verily it shall cast forth sparks like unto a castle. 32 and as bright as a herd of yellow camels. 33 Woe on that Day to those who belied it! 34 On that day they will not be able to speak, 35 nor shall they be given permission, so that they can apologize. 36 Woe unto the repudiators on that day! 37 That is the Day of Judgement on which We have assembled you as well as all those who went before you. 38 So if you have any plot to devise against Me, then devise it. 39 Woe on that Day to those who reject the truth! 40
