Shakir rendition of Surah The Winnowing Winds, The Scatterers(adh-Dhariyat)
51:1 I swear by the wind that scatters far and wide
51:2 Then those clouds bearing the load (of minute things in space)
51:3 Then those (ships) that glide easily
51:4 Then those (angels who) distribute blessings by Our command
51:5 What you are threatened with is most surely true
51:6 And the judgment must most surely come about
51:7 I swear by the heaven full of ways
51:8 Most surely you are at variance with each other in what you say
51:9 He is turned away from it who would be turned away
51:10 Cursed be the liars
51:11 Who are in a gulf (of ignorance) neglectful
51:12 They ask: When is the day of judgment
51:13 (It is) the day on which they shall be tried at the fire
51:14 Taste your persecution! this is what you would hasten on
51:15 Surely those who guard (against evil) shall be in gardens and fountains
51:16 Taking what their Lord gives them; surely they were before that, the doers of good
51:17 They used to sleep but little in the night
51:18 And in the morning they asked forgiveness
51:19 And in their property was a portion due to him who begs and to him who is denied (good)
51:20 And in the earth there are signs for those who are sure
51:21 And in your own souls (too); will you not then see
51:22 And in the heaven is your sustenance and what you are threatened with
51:23 And by the Lord of the heavens and the earth! it is most surely the truth, just as you do speak
51:24 Has there come to you information about the honored guests of Ibrahim
51:25 When they entered upon him, they said: Peace. Peace, said he, a strange people
51:26 Then he turned aside to his family secretly and brought a fat (roasted) calf
51:27 So he brought it near them. He said: What! will you not eat
51:28 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
51:29 Then his wife came up in great grief, and she struck her face and said: An old barren woman
51:30 They said: Thus says your Lord: Surely He is the Wise, the Knowing
51:31 He said: What is your affair then, O messengers
51:32 They said: Surely we are sent to a guilty people
51:33 That we may send down upon them stone of clay
51:34 Sent forth from your Lord for the extravagant
51:35 Then We brought forth such as were therein of the believers
51:36 But We did not find therein save a (single) house of those who submitted (the Muslims)
51:37 And We left therein a sign for those who fear the painful punishment
51:38 And in Musa: When We sent him to Firon with clear authority
51:39 But he turned away with his forces and said: A magician or a mad man
51:40 So We seized him and his hosts and hurled them into the sea and he was blamable
51:41 And in Ad: When We sent upon them the destructive wind
51:42 It did not leave aught on which it blew, but it made it like ashes
51:43 And in Samood: When it was said to them: Enjoy yourselves for a while
51:44 But they revolted against the commandment of their Lord, so the rumbling overtook them while they saw
51:45 So they were not able to rise up, nor could they defend themselves
51:46 And the people of Nuh before, surely they were a transgressing people
51:47 And the heaven, We raised it high with power, and most surely We are the makers of things ample
51:48 And the earth, We have made it a wide extent; how well have We then spread (it) out
51:49 And of everything We have created pairs that you may be mindful
51:50 Therefore fly to Allah, surely I am a plain warner to you from Him
51:51 And do not set up with Allah another god: surely I am a plain warner to you from Him
51:52 Thus there did not come to those before them a messenger but they said: A magician or a mad man
51:53 Have they charged each other with this? Nay! they are an inordinate people
51:54 Then turn your back upon them for you are not to blame
51:55 And continue to remind, for surely the reminder profits the believers
51:56 And I have not created the jinn and the men except that they should serve Me
51:57 I do not desire from them any sustenance and I do not desire that they should feed Me
51:58 Surely Allah is the Bestower of sustenance, the Lord of Power, the Strong
51:59 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
51:60 Therefore woe to those who disbelieve because of their day which they are threatened with
