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 dipersing winds that disperse. (1) and those that carry the burden [of heavy clouds,] (2) by the ships which smoothly sail on the oceans, (3) and execute the great task of apportioning (rainfall): (4) Verily that which ye are promised is true; (5) And undoubtedly justice will surely be done. (6) The heavens webbed-with-tracks is witness (7) your ideas are confused. (8) Let whoever wishes, turn away from Our Quran. (9) They but destroy themselves, they who are given to guessing at what they cannot ascertain (10) and who wander in the abyss of confusion. (11) they who [mockingly] ask, "When is that Day of Judgment to be?" (12) (It will be) a Day when they will be tried (i.e. burnt) over the Fire! (13) (and be told): “Taste your ordeal! This is what you were seeking to hasten.” (14) Indeed, the righteous will be among gardens and springs, (15) Taking joy in the things which their Lord gives them, because, before then, they lived a good life. (16) They used to sleep only a little during the night. (17) And in the hours before dawn they would ask forgiveness, (18) And in their property was a portion due to him who begs and to him who is denied (good). (19) And in the earth are signs for those who are certain. (20) And in your own selves; so can you not perceive? (21) In the heavens there is your sustenance and that which you were promised (Paradise). (22) And by the Lord of the heavens and the earth, it is the truth, even as (it is true) that ye speak. (23)
