Farook Malik rendition of Surah The Winnowing Winds, The Scatterers(adh-Dhariyat)
51:1 By the dust scattering winds
51:2 then by the heavy laden clouds
51:3 then by their swift gliding
51:4 then by those who distribute the big affair (rain)
51:5 surely, that which you are being promised is true
51:6 and surely, the Day of Judgment shall come to pass
51:7 By the sky full of orbits
51:8 surely you contradict one another in what you say
51:9 only the perverse persons turn away from the truth
51:10 Woe to those who judge by conjecture
51:11 those who are engulfed in ignorance and heedlessness
51:12 They ask: "When will the Day of Judgment be?"
51:13 It will be the Day when they will be punished in the fire
51:14 and it will be said: "Taste your chastisement! This is what you were seeking to hasten."
51:15 As to the righteous, they will be in the midst of gardens and springs
51:16 joyfully receiving what their Lord shall give them; for they were before that (during their life on earth) righteous people
51:17 They used to sleep but little in the night time
51:18 pray for forgiveness in the early morning
51:19 and share their wealth with the needy who asked for it, and those who did not ask
51:20 In the earth, there are signs for the firm believers
51:21 and also in your own selves; can you not see
51:22 In heaven is your sustenance and all that you are promised
51:23 I swear by the Lord of heaven and earth that this is true, as certain as you are speaking now
51:24 Have you heard the story of Abraham’s honored guests
51:25 When they came to him and said: "Peace be upon you!" "Peace be upon you also!" he answered, and seeing that they were strangers
51:26 he went quietly to his family, brought a roasted cal
51:27 and placed it before them saying: "Will you not eat?"
51:28 When he saw them not eating, he became afraid of them. They said: "Have no fear," and they gave him good news of a son endowed with knowledge
51:29 Hearing this his wife came forward, with astonishment she smote her forehead and said: "A son to a barren old woman!"
51:30 They replied: "Thus has said your Lord: surely He is the Wise, the Knowledgeable."
51:31 Abraham asked: "O Divine Messengers, what is your errand?"
51:32 They replied: "We have been sent to a guilty nation (people of Lot, who were homosexuals)
51:33 to shower upon them brimstone
51:34 marked by your Lord for the transgressors."
51:35 Then We saved all those who were believers in the tow
51:36 - We found none but one household of true Muslim
51:37 - We left therein a sign for those who fear the painful punishment
51:38 There is also a sign for you in the story of Moses: when We sent him to Pharaoh with clear authority
51:39 but he turned his back along with his chiefs, saying: "He (Moses) is a sorcerer or a madman."
51:40 Consequently, We seized him and his warriors, and cast them into the sea. Indeed he deserved much blame
51:41 There is also a sign in the story of 'Ad: when We let loose on them a blighting win
51:42 which made rotten everything that it blew on
51:43 Likewise the story of Thamud, when it was said to them: "Enjoy yourselves for a while,"
51:44 but they disobeyed the commandment of their Lord; consequently they were overtaken by the thunderbolt even while they were looking on
51:45 So neither they could stand up on their feet nor could they defend themselves
51:46 And We destroyed the people of Noah before them because they too were transgressors
51:47 We have built the heavens with Our hands, for We have the power to do so
51:48 We have spread out the earth; how excellent a spreader We are
51:49 We have created everything in pairs, so that you may learn a lesson from it
51:50 O Prophet, say to mankind: "Rush towards Allah, surely I am assigned by Him as a plain Warner to you all
51:51 Do not set up another god besides Allah, surely I am assigned by Him as a plain Warner to you all."
51:52 It has been the case that whenever a Messenger came to the peoples before them, they said about him: "He is a sorcerer or a madman."
51:53 Have they transmitted this statement from one generation to the next? Nay, but they are all a rebellious people
51:54 So, O Prophet, ignore them; you are not at fault
51:55 But keep on admonishing them, for admonition is beneficial to the true believers
51:56 We have not created jinns and mankind except to worship Me
51:57 I require no sustenance from them, nor do I ask that they should feed Me
51:58 Surely it is Allah Who is the giver of all sustenance, the Lord of Power, the Invincible
51:59 Surely those who are wrongdoers, shall have their portion of torment similar to the portion of their predecessors; so let them not challenge Me to hurry it on
51:60 Woe then to the unbelievers, on that Day with which they are being threatened
