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 which carry dust particles, (1) And those that bear the burden (of the rain) (2) which then smoothly speed along, (3) and execute the great task of apportioning (rainfall): (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) And lo! the judgment will indeed befall. (6) By heaven with all its tracks (7) Verily, [O men,] you are deeply at variance as to what to believe: (8) Let whoever wishes, turn away from Our Quran. (9) Perish the conjecturers (10) and who wander in the abyss of confusion. (11) They ask, "When will be the Day of Judgment and Justice?" (12) On that Day they shall be tried at the Fire, (13) 'Taste your trial! This is that you were seeking to hasten.' (14) Surely the godfearing shall be among gardens and fountains (15) Receiving what is given them by their Lord. They were surely the virtuous before this. (16) they would lie asleep during but a small part of the night, (17) and would ask for forgiveness at dawn, (18) And in their properties there was the right of the beggar, and the Mahrum (the poor who does not ask the others). (19) AND ON EARTH there are signs [of God's existence, visible] to all who are endowed with inner certainty, (20) And also in your ownselves. Will you not then see? (21) And in the heaven is your provision and that which ye are promised. (22) And by the Lord of the heavens and the earth, it is the truth, even as (it is true) that ye speak. (23)
