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 Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
By the winds that scatter the dust, (1) And the clouds bearing a load. (2) And those [ships] sailing with ease (3) and those that apportion [the gift of life] at [God's] behest! (4) Lo! that wherewith ye are threatened is indeed true, (5) And lo! the judgment will indeed befall. (6) By the heaven with its numerous forms: (7) Truly ye are in a doctrine discordant, (8) Only those who are destined to revert, are reverted from it. (9) Perish the conjecturers (10) Who are careless in an abyss! (11) They ask, "When will the Day of Judgement come?" (12) On that Day they shall be tried at the Fire, (13) 'Taste your trial! This is that you were seeking to hasten.' (14) The righteous shall live among gardens and fountains, (15) receiving their reward from their Lord. They had been righteous people before the Day of Judgment. (16) sleeping little in the night-time, (17) And used to seek forgiveness before dawn. (18) They assigned a share of their property for the needy and the destitute. (19) For those with sure belief there are signs in the earth, (20) And in yourselves. Then will you not see? (21) In the heavens there is your sustenance and that which you were promised (Paradise). (22) Then, by the Lord of the heaven and the earth, it is the truth (i.e. what has been promised to you), just as it is the truth that you can speak. (23)
