51: Adh-Dhariyat (الذاريات)


1:  I swear by the wind that scatters far and wide,

2:  Then those clouds bearing the load (of minute things in space).

3:  Then those (ships) that glide easily,

4:  Then those (angels who) distribute blessings by Our command;

5:  What you are threatened with is most surely true,

6:  And the judgment must most surely come about.

7:  I swear by the heaven full of ways.

8:  Most surely you are at variance with each other in what you say,

9:  He is turned away from it who would be turned away.

10:  Cursed be the liars,

11:  Who are in a gulf (of ignorance) neglectful;

12:  They ask: When is the day of judgment?

13:  (It is) the day on which they shall be tried at the fire.

14:  Taste your persecution! this is what you would hasten on.

15:  Surely those who guard (against evil) shall be in gardens and fountains.

16:  Taking what their Lord gives them; surely they were before that, the doers of good.

17:  They used to sleep but little in the night.

18:  And in the morning they asked forgiveness.

19:  And in their property was a portion due to him who begs and to him who is denied (good).

20:  And in the earth there are signs for those who are sure,

21:  And in your own souls (too); will you not then see?

22:  And in the heaven is your sustenance and what you are threatened with.

23:  And by the Lord of the heavens and the earth! it is most surely the truth, just as you do speak.

24:  Has there come to you information about the honored guests of Ibrahim?

25:  When they entered upon him, they said: Peace. Peace, said he, a strange people.

26:  Then he turned aside to his family secretly and brought a fat (roasted) calf,

27:  So he brought it near them. He said: What! will you not eat?

28:  So he conceived in his mind a fear on account of them. They said: Fear not. And they gave him the good news of a boy possessing knowledge.

29:  Then his wife came up in great grief, and she struck her face and said: An old barren woman!

30:  They said: Thus says your Lord: Surely He is the Wise, the Knowing.

31:  He said: What is your affair then, O messengers!

32:  They said: Surely we are sent to a guilty people,

33:  That we may send down upon them stone of clay,

34:  Sent forth from your Lord for the extravagant.

35:  Then We brought forth such as were therein of the believers.

36:  But We did not find therein save a (single) house of those who submitted (the Muslims).

37:  And We left therein a sign for those who fear the painful punishment.

38:  And in Musa: When We sent him to Firon with clear authority.

39:  But he turned away with his forces and said: A magician or a mad man.

40:  So We seized him and his hosts and hurled them into the sea and he was blamable.

41:  And in Ad: When We sent upon them the destructive wind.

42:  It did not leave aught on which it blew, but it made it like ashes.

43:  And in Samood: When it was said to them: Enjoy yourselves for a while.

44:  But they revolted against the commandment of their Lord, so the rumbling overtook them while they saw.

45:  So they were not able to rise up, nor could they defend themselves-

46:  And the people of Nuh before, surely they were a transgressing people.

47:  And the heaven, We raised it high with power, and most surely We are the makers of things ample.

48:  And the earth, We have made it a wide extent; how well have We then spread (it) out.

49:  And of everything We have created pairs that you may be mindful.

50:  Therefore fly to Allah, surely I am a plain warner to you from Him.

51:  And do not set up with Allah another god: surely I am a plain warner to you from Him.

52:  Thus there did not come to those before them a messenger but they said: A magician or a mad man.

53:  Have they charged each other with this? Nay! they are an inordinate people.

54:  Then turn your back upon them for you are not to blame;

55:  And continue to remind, for surely the reminder profits the believers.

56:  And I have not created the jinn and the men except that they should serve Me.

57:  I do not desire from them any sustenance and I do not desire that they should feed Me.

58:  Surely Allah is the Bestower of sustenance, the Lord of Power, the Strong.

59:  So surely those who are unjust shall have a portion like the portion of their companions, therefore let them not ask Me to hasten on.

60:  Therefore woe to those who disbelieve because of their day which they are threatened with.
