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 the winds that scatter the dust, (1) which carry clouds laden with water, (2) And (the ships) that float with ease and gentleness; (3) And those (angels) who distribute (provisions, rain, and other blessings) by (Allah's) Command; (4) Verily that which ye are promised is true; (5) And verily the Requital is surely to befall. (6) CONSIDER the firmament full of starry paths! (7) surely, you are in different sayings, (8) From which only he turns who is turned away. (9) They but destroy themselves, they who are given to guessing at what they cannot ascertain (10) who are steeped in ignorance and heedlessness. (11) they who [mockingly] ask, "When is that Day of Judgment to be?" (12) On that Day they shall be tried at the Fire, (13) "Taste your trial. This is what you sought to hasten." (14) [But,] behold, the God-conscious will find themselves amid gardens and springs, (15) They shall receive what their Lord will bestow on them. They have done good works in the past, (16) They slept very little during the night (17) And in the hour of early dawn, they (were found) praying for Forgiveness; (18) And in their wealth the beggar and the outcast had due share. (19) There are signs in the earth for those who are firm in their faith, (20) As also in your own selves: Will ye not then see? (21) And in heaven is [the source of] your sustenance [on earth] and [of] all that you are promised [for your life after death]: (22) And by the Lord of the heavens and the earth! it is most surely the truth, just as you do speak. (23)
