Abdel Haleem rendition of Surah The Winnowing Winds, The Scatterers(adh-Dhariyat)
51:1 By those [winds] that scatter far and wide
51:2 and those that are heavily laden
51:3 that speed freely
51:4 that distribute [rain] as ordained
51:5 What you [people] are promised is true
51:6 the Judgement will come–&ndash
51:7 by the sky with its pathways
51:8 you differ in what you say–&ndash
51:9 those who turn away from it are [truly] deceived
51:10 Perish the liars
51:11 those steeped in error and unaware
51:12 They ask, ‘When is this Judgement Day coming?&rsquo
51:13 On a Day when they will be punished by the Fire
51:14 ‘Taste the punishment! This is what you wished to hasten.&rsquo
51:15 The righteous will be in Gardens with [flowing] springs
51:16 They will receive their Lord’s gifts because of the good they did before
51:17 sleeping only little at night
51:18 praying at dawn for God’s forgiveness
51:19 giving a rightful share of their wealth to the beggar and the deprived
51:20 On earth there are signs for those with sure faith–&ndash
51:21 and in yourselves too, do you not see?–&ndash
51:22 in the sky is your sustenance and all that you are promised
51:23 By the Lord of the heavens and earth! All this is as real as your speaking
51:24 [Muhammad], have you heard the story of the honoured guests of Abraham
51:25 They went in to see him and said, ‘Peace.’ ‘Peace,’ he said, [adding to himself] ‘These people are strangers.&rsquo
51:26 He turned quickly to his household, brought out a fat calf
51:27 and placed it before them. ‘Will you not eat?’ he said
51:28 beginning to be afraid of them, but they said, ‘Do not be afraid.’ They gave him good news of a son who would be gifted with knowledge
51:29 His wife then entered with a loud cry, struck her face, and said, ‘A barren old woman?&rsquo
51:30 but they said, ‘It will be so. This is what your Lord said, and He is the Wise, the All Knowing.&rsquo
51:31 Abraham said, ‘What is your errand, messengers?&rsquo
51:32 They said, ‘We are sent to a people lost in sin
51:33 to bring down rocks of clay
51:34 marked by your Lord for those who exceed all bounds.&rsquo
51:35 We brought out such believers as were there
51:36 We found only one household devoted to God
51:37 and left the town to be a sign for those who fear the painful punishment
51:38 There is another sign in Moses: We sent him to Pharaoh with clear authority
51:39 Pharaoh turned away with his supporters, saying, ‘This is a sorcerer, or maybe a madman,&rsquo
51:40 so We seized him and his forces and threw them into the sea: he was to blame
51:41 There is another sign in the Ad: We sent the life-destroying wind against the
51:42 and it reduced everything it came up against to shreds
51:43 And also in the Thamud: it was said to them, ‘Make the most of your lives for a while,&rsquo
51:44 but they rebelled against their Lord’s command, so the blast took them. They looked on helplessly
51:45 they could not even remain standing, let alone defend themselves
51:46 Before that We destroyed the people of Noah. They were a truly sinful people
51:47 We built the heavens with Our power and made them vast
51:48 We spread out the earth- how well We smoothed it out!
51:49 and We created pairs of all things so that you [people] might take note
51:50 [So, say to them, Prophet], ‘Quickly, turn to God- I am sent by Him to give you clear warning
51:51 and do not set up any other god alongside Him. I am sent by Him to give you clear warning!&rsquo
51:52 Every previous people to whom a messenger was sent also said, ‘A sor-cerer, or maybe a madman!&rsquo
51:53 Did they tell one another to do this? No! They are a people who exceed all bounds
51:54 so ignore them [Prophet]- you are not to blame
51:55 and go on reminding [people], it is good for those who believe to be reminded
51:56 I created jinn and mankind only to worship Me
51:57 I want no provision from them, nor do I want them to feed Me
51:58 God is the Provider, the Lord of Power, the Ever Mighty
51:59 The evildoers, like their predecessors, will have a share of punishment- they need not ask Me to hasten it
51:60 and woe betide those who deny the truth on the Day they have been promised
