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 benevolent, ever-merciful
By those [winds] scattering [dust] dispersing (1) Then those clouds bearing the load (of minute things in space). (2) And (the ships) that float with ease and gentleness; (3) by the angels which distribute the affairs, (4) Verily, that which you are promised (i.e. Resurrection in the Hereafter and receiving the reward or punishment of good or bad deeds, etc.) is surely true. (5) The Judgement will indeed take place. (6) By the heaven full of paths, (7) Certainly, you have different ideas (about Muhammad SAW and the Quran). (8) perverted in his views thereon is he who would deceive himself! (9) Woe to the falsehood-mongers,- (10) Who are within a flood [of confusion] and heedless. (11) They ask; "When will be the Day of Recompense?" (12) It will be on the day when they will be roasted in the fire. (13) (And it will be said unto them): Taste your torment (which ye inflicted). This is what ye sought to hasten. (14) Surely the godfearing shall be among gardens and fountains (15) Taking joy in the things which their Lord gives them, because, before then, they lived a good life. (16) They were in the habit of sleeping but little by night, (17) and would ask for forgiveness at dawn, (18) And in their wealth and possessions (was remembered) the right of the (needy,) him who asked, and him who (for some reason) was prevented (from asking). (19) In the earth are signs for those having sure faith; (20) And within yourselves. Can you not perceive? (21) In the heavens there is your sustenance and that which you were promised (Paradise). (22) By the Lord of the heavens and the earth, this is certainly true even as you speak. (23)
