Bijan Moeinian rendition of Surah The Winnowing Winds, The Scatterers(adh-Dhariyat)
---
51:1 Your Lord swears by the blowing winds.
51:2 Your Lord swears by those clouds that are carrying a heavy mass of water.
51:3 Your Lord swears by those clouds that glide with ease.
51:4 Your Lord swears by those clouds that distribute their water equally throughout their trip by the order of the Almighty.
51:5 That whatever your Lord has promised will take place.
51:6 That one day you will be questioned for what you have done in your life.
51:7 In spit of the fact that you observe the majestic heaven, which God has created with many trajectories in it,…
51:8 you keep disputing the truth that He has revealed to you!
51:9 God, therefore, will turn away from those who have chosen to deny their Creator.
51:10 Doomed are those who choose their religion based upon guesses and incomplete evidences.
51:11 Who are deeply ignorant and careless about their religion.
51:12 They jokingly ask: “When will be the Day of Judgment? Why does not it happen soon, if it is true?]”
51:13 The answer is: “When they will be thrown into the Fire.”
51:14 They will be told: “Taste the result of your mischief. This is the event that you wanted to take place soon.”
51:15 On that Day, the righteous ones will be welcomed to the gardens with water springs.
51:16 They will joyfully receive the reward that their Lord will give them for doing good deeds in their worldly lives.
51:17 They cut their sleeping at night short to worship their Lord.
51:18 And around dawn ask their Lord for forgiveness.
51:19 And gave a part of their wealth to the needy ones (whether the latter asked for it or not) realizing that what they own is not completely theirs.
51:20 Earth is full of signs [indicating the existence of God, Oneness of God, hasting toward a doomed destiny, etc.] for those who believe.
51:21 In your own selves, too, the believer find many signs to strengthen their faith.
51:22 Your provision, as well as whatever is promised to you [destiny, talent, new discoveries, achievements, etc.], is already decided in the heaven.
51:23 By the Lord of Heaven [the world of unseen] and the earth [materialistic world] whatever you have heard is as true as any truth that you speak yourself about.
51:24 Have you ever heard the story of the Abraham’s honored guests?
51:25 When they [angles appearing like human beings] reached him they wished peace for him. Abraham returned their salutation saying: “Peace also be with you my noble stranger guests.”
51:26 He asked his family to roast a fat cow for his guests.
51:27 When they did not touch the food, Abraham asked “Do not you want to eat?”
51:28 As they refused to eat, fear overtook him. The angles said: “Do not be afraid, we are here to give you a good news: Pretty soon God will give you a wise and knowledgeable son.”
51:29 His wife, overhearing them, came out (struck her forehead) saying: “From an old and barren woman like me?”
51:30 They said: “That is what your Lord has decided; He is the Most Wise, the Most Knowledgeable.”
51:31 Abraham asked then: “It sounds that you have come to accomplish an important mission.”
51:32 They replied: “We are sent to punish the guilty people [of Prophet Lot].”
51:33 “To shower them with hot clays.”
51:34 “Each stone being marked by Lord to punish a specific sinner.”
51:35 “Another mission of ours is to evacuate the town from believers.”
51:36 “But we have found only one Muslim (submitted to God) household [Lot’s household].”
51:37 “We set it up as an example for those who do not want to face the punishment of the Lord.”
51:38 And the story of Moses whom God sent with the most clear signs to Pharaoh.
51:39 But Pharaoh rejected did not believe in those miracles out of pride and said: “This man is either crazy or a magician.”
51:40 Then I (God) punished him and his army by casting them into the sea. He is the one to be blamed for his fate.
51:41 And the story of Ad whom God sent a disastrous wind to his guilty people.
51:42 Which destroyed anything on its path.
51:43 And the story of Thamud when they were told: “You are given only a short time to enjoy [may you take advantage of it and change] your style of life.”
51:44 As they continued to challenge their Lord, they were overtaken by a sudden thunderbolt.
51:45 They did not even have time to stand up and run.
51:46 And the story of Noah’s people whom I destroyed as they were so wicked.
51:47 I (God) have created the universe myself and will continue to expand it [confirmation of the expansion theory of the universe after the Big Bang.]
51:48 I have made the earth habitable for its inhabitant; excellently designed [eco-system].
51:49 I have put a pair of everything in it so that you may wonder about the creative power of your Creator.
51:50 Tell them: “Take refuge in God; I (Mohammad) am sent to you as His Warner.”
51:51 “Do not set up another God [idol, boss, money, woman, etc.] to worship beside Him; I am sent to you as His Warner.”
51:52 This is a trend: whenever a Prophet is sent to a people, they would say: “He is a crazy magician.”
51:53 Is it because they have arrived to such after a rational debate? Indeed not. The fact of the matter is that such accusations are the natural reactions of rebellious people.
51:54 So, forget about them. Your job has been to relay the message. You (Mohammed) are not responsible for their behaviors.
51:55 Continue admonishing; the believers will benefit from the admonition.
51:56 I have created men and extra-terrestrials (Jinns) to serve only me [not a ruler, a woman, a constitution, etc.]
51:57 I (God) do not need any provision from them, nor do I ask them to feed Me.
51:58 On the contrary, God, the supreme and the Most Powerful, is the One Who provides provision for his creatures.
51:59 The sinners will have the same destiny as those who sinned before them. Tell them not to jokingly ask Me to accelerate it.
51:60 What a miserable Day will be when the disbelievers face their fate.
