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 Gracious, Most Merciful
By the swift scatterers (1) And those that bear the burden (of the rain) (2) Then those (ships) that glide easily, (3) And those (angels) who distribute (provisions, rain, and other blessings) by (Allah's) Command; (4) that what you are promised is certainly true (5) and the Day of Judgment will inevitably take place. (6) By the heaven full of paths, (7) your ideas are confused. (8) Through which are deluded (away from the Truth) such as would be deluded. (9) Doomed are the conjecturers (10) Who are careless in an abyss! (11) They ask; "When will be the Day of Recompense?" (12) [It is] the Day they will be tormented over the Fire (13) (And told:) "Taste your punishment. This is what you were trying to hasten." (14) [But,] behold, the God-conscious will find themselves amid gardens and springs, (15) Taking joy in the things which their Lord has given them. Verily, they were before this Muhsinun (good-doers - see V. 2:112). (16) Little of the night would they slumber, (17) and would ask for forgiveness at dawn, (18) and [would assign] in all that they possessed a due share unto such as might ask [for help] and such as might suffer privation. (19) In the earth there is evidence (of the Truth) for those who have strong faith. (20) And also in your ownselves. Will you not then see? (21) And in the heaven is your sustenance and what you are threatened with. (22) Then, by the Lord of heaven and earth, this is the very Truth, as much as the fact that ye can speak intelligently to each other. (23)
