Arthur John Arberry rendition of Surah The Winnowing Winds, The Scatterers(adh-Dhariyat)
---
51:1 By the swift scatterers
51:2 and the burden-bearers
51:3 and the smooth runners
51:4 and the partitioners,
51:5 surely that you are promised is true,
51:6 and surely the Doom is about to fall!
51:7 By heaven with all its tracks
51:8 surely you speak at variance,
51:9 and perverted therefrom are some.
51:10 Perish the conjecturers
51:11 who are dazed in perplexity
51:12 asking, 'When shall be the Day of Doom?'
51:13 Upon the day when they shall be tried at the Fire:
51:14 'Taste your trial! This is that you were seeking to hasten.'
51:15 Surely the godfearing shall be among gardens and fountains
51:16 taking whatsoever their Lord has given them; they were good-doers before that.
51:17 Little of the night would they slumber,
51:18 and in the mornings they would ask for forgiveness;
51:19 and the beggar and the outcast had a share in their wealth.
51:20 In the earth are signs for those having sure faith;
51:21 and in your selves; what, do you not see?
51:22 And in heaven is your provision, and that you are promised.
51:23 So by the Lord of heaven and earth, it is as surely true as that you have speech.
51:24 Hast thou received the story of the honoured guests of Abraham?
51:25 When they entered unto him, saying 'Peace!' he said 'Peace! You are a people unknown to me.'
51:26 Then he turned to his household and brought a fattened calf,
51:27 and he laid it before them saying, 'Will you not eat?'
51:28 Then he conceived a fear of them. They said, 'Be not afraid!' And they gave him good tidings of a cunning boy.
51:29 Then came forward his wife, clamouring, and she smote her face, and said, 'An old woman, barren!'
51:30 They said, 'So says thy Lord; He is the All-wise, the All-knowing.'
51:31 Said he, 'And what is your business, envoys?'
51:32 They said, 'We have been sent to a people of sinners,
51:33 to loose upon them stones of clay
51:34 marked with thy Lord for the prodigal.
51:35 So We brought forth such believers as were in it,
51:36 but We found not therein except one house of those that have surrendered themselves.
51:37 And therein We left a sign to those who fear the painful chastisement.
51:38 And also in Moses, when We sent him unto Pharaoh, with a clear authority,
51:39 but he turned his back, with his court, saying, 'A sorcerer, or a man possessed!'
51:40 So We seized him and his hosts, and We cast them into the sea, and he blameworthy.
51:41 And also in Ad, when We loosed against them the withering wind
51:42 that left nothing it came upon, but made it as stuff decayed.
51:43 And also in Thamood, when it was said to them, 'Take your enjoyment for a while!'
51:44 Then they turned in disdain from the commandment of their Lord, and the thunderbolt took them and they themselves beholding
51:45 and they were not able to stand upright, and were not helped.
51:46 And the people of Noah before; surely they were an ungodly people.
51:47 And heaven -- We built it with might, and We extend it wide.
51:48 And the earth -- We spread it forth; O excellent Smoothers!
51:49 And of everything created We two kinds; haply you will remember.
51:50 Therefore flee unto God! I am a clear warner from Him to you.
51:51 And set not up with God another god; I am a clear warner from Him to you.
51:52 Even so not a Messenger came to those before them but they said, 'A sorcerer, or a man possessed!'
51:53 What, have they bequeathed it one to another? Nay, but they are an insolent people.
51:54 So turn thou from them; thou wilt not be reproached.
51:55 And remind; the Reminder profits the believers.
51:56 I have not created jinn and mankind except to serve Me.
51:57 I desire of them no provision, neither do I desire that they should feed Me.
51:58 Surely God is the All-provider, the Possessor of Strength, the Ever-Sure.
51:59 The evildoers shall have their portion, like the portion of their fellows; so let them not hasten Me!
51:60 So woe to the unbelievers, for that day of theirs that they are promised.
