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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
By the scatterers (the wind) scattering, (1) then the bearers of weight (the clouds), (2) And those who move (on the water) gently, (3) And those that distribute and apportion by Command;- (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 verily Judgment and Justice must indeed come to pass. (6) By heaven with all its tracks (7) Truly ye are in a doctrine discordant, (8) Let whoever wishes, turn away from Our Quran. (9) May the conjecturers perish, (10) who are dazed in perplexity (11) They ask, “When will be the Day of Judgement?” (12) It will be the Day whereon in the Fire they will be burned (13) and will be told, "Suffer the torment which you wanted to experience immediately". (14) Surely the God-fearing will find themselves in the midst of 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) They used to sleep but little in the night. (17) praying at dawn for God's pardon, (18) and the beggar and the outcast had a share in their wealth. (19) In the earth there is evidence (of the Truth) for those who have strong faith. (20) And also in your own selves. Behold ye not? (21) In heaven is your sustenance, and also that which you are promised. (22) Then by the Lord of the heaven and earth, indeed, it is truth - just as [sure as] it is that you are speaking. (23)
