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 benevolent, ever-merciful
I CALL TO witness those who scatter (dust) by dispersing, (1) And those who bear the load (of rain), (2) and those that speed along with gentle ease, (3) and the partitioners, (4) surely that you are promised is true, (5) and the Judgement shall doubtlessly take place. (6) By the heaven with its numerous forms: (7) surely you are deeply at variance [as to what to believe] -- (8) Through which are deluded (away from the Truth) such as would be deluded. (9) May the conjecturers perish, (10) Those who are in heedlessness neglectful. (11) They ask, "When will be the Day of Judgment and Justice?" (12) (It is) the day when they will be tormented at the Fire, (13) (And told:) "Taste your punishment. This is what you were trying to hasten." (14) Surely those who fear God and follow the straight path will be amidst gardens and fresh springs of water, (15) Accepting what their Lord has given them. Indeed, they were before that doers of good. (16) They slept little in the night, (17) And used to seek forgiveness before dawn. (18) And the beggar and the destitute had a share in their wealth. (19) On the earth are signs for those of assured Faith, (20) And also in your ownselves. Will you not then see? (21) And in the heaven lies your sustenance, and the promise you are given. (22) By the Lord of the heavens and the earth, this is certainly true even as you speak. (23)
