51 Adh-Dhariyat | The Winnowing Winds

  • 51:1

    By the atoms that scatter.

  • 51:2

    Carrying a charge.

  • 51:3

    Flowing smoothly.

  • 51:4

    Distributing a command.

  • 51:5

    What you are being promised is true.

  • 51:6

    The Judgment will come to pass.

  • 51:7

    By the sky with orbits.

  • 51:8

    You are in verbal discord.

  • 51:9

    Misled by it is the deviant.

  • 51:10

    Woe to the deceitful.

  • 51:11

    Who are in mischief, unaware.

  • 51:12

    They ask: "When is the day of Judgment?"

  • 51:13

    The day they are tested upon the fire.

  • 51:14

    "Taste this trial of yours; this is what you asked to be hastened."

  • 51:15

    The righteous are in paradises and springs.

  • 51:16

    Receiving what their Lord has bestowed to them, for they were before that pious.

  • 51:17

    They used to rarely sleep the whole night.

  • 51:18

    Before dawn, they would seek forgiveness.

  • 51:19

    An in their money was a portion for the needy and the deprived.

  • 51:20

    In the earth are signs for those who reason.

  • 51:21

    Within yourselves; do you not see?

  • 51:22

    In the heaven is your provision, and what you are promised.

  • 51:23

    By the Lord of the heaven and the earth, this is truth just as the fact that you speak.

  • 51:24

    Has the story of Abraham's noble guests come to you?

  • 51:25

    When they entered upon him, they said, "Peace." He said, "Peace to a people unknown!"

  • 51:26

    Then he went to his family and brought a fat roasted calf.

  • 51:27

    He offered it to them, he said, "Do you not eat?"

  • 51:28

    He then became fearful of them. They said, "Do not fear," and they gave him good news of a knowledgeable son.

  • 51:29

    His wife then approached in amazement. She slapped upon her face, and said, "I am a sterile old woman!"

  • 51:30

    They said, "It was such that your Lord has said. He is the Wise, the Knowledgeable."

  • 51:31

    He said, "What is your undertaking, O messengers?"

  • 51:32

    They said, "We have been sent to a criminal people."

  • 51:33

    "To send down upon them rocks of clay."

  • 51:34

    "Prepared by your Lord for the transgressors."

  • 51:35

    We then vacated from it all those who acknowledged.

  • 51:36

    But We only found in it one house of those who had peacefully surrendered.

  • 51:37

    We have left in it a sign for those who fear the painful retribution.

  • 51:38

    Also Moses, for We sent him to Pharaoh with a clear authority.

  • 51:39

    But he turned away, in arrogance, and he said, "A magician, or crazy."

  • 51:40

    So We took him and his troops; We cast them into the sea, and he was to blame.

  • 51:41

    Also Aad, for We sent upon them the hurricane wind.

  • 51:42

    Anything that it came upon was utterly destroyed.

  • 51:43

    Also Thamud, for it was said to them: "Enjoy for a while."

  • 51:44

    But they rebelled against the command of their Lord. So the lightning struck them while they were looking.

  • 51:45

    They were unable to rise up, nor could they win.

  • 51:46

    The people of Noah before; they were a wicked people.

  • 51:47

    We constructed the universe with might, and We are expanding it.

  • 51:48

    The earth We furnished; We are fine Providers.

  • 51:49

    From everything We created a pair, perhaps you may remember.

  • 51:50

    So escape to God. I am to you from Him a clear warner.

  • 51:51

    Do not make any other god with God. I am to you from Him a clear warner.

  • 51:52

    Likewise, when a messenger went to those before them, they said, "A magician, or crazy."

  • 51:53

    Have they passed down this saying to each other? Indeed, they are a wicked people.

  • 51:54

    So turn away from them; you will not be blamed.

  • 51:55

    Remind, for the reminder benefits those who acknowledge.

  • 51:56

    I did not create the Jinn and the humans except to serve Me.

  • 51:57

    I need no provisions from them, nor do I need them to give food.

  • 51:58

    God is the Provider, the One with Power, the Supreme.

  • 51:59

    The transgressors will have the same fate as their previous friends; so let them not be hasty.

  • 51:60

    So woe to those who rejected from the day that is waiting for them.
