51:1  By the swift scatterer
51:2  and the burden-bearer
51:3  and the smooth runner
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 track
51:8  surely you speak at variance
51:9  and perverted therefrom are some
51:10  Perish the conjecturer
51:11  who are dazed in perplexit
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 fountain
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 cla
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 win
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 beholdin
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
