By the scatterers who scatter
and by those pregnant with their burden
and by those running on easily
and by the distributors of affairs!
verily, what ye are threatened with is surely true
And, verily, the judgment will surely take place
By the heaven possessed of paths
verily, ye are at variance in what ye say
He is turned from it who is turned
who are heedless in a flood (of ignorance)
They will ask, 'When is the day of judgment?
The day when at the fire they shall be tried.
'Taste your trial! this is what we wished to hasten on!
Verily, the pious are in gardens and springs
taking what their Lord brings them. Verily, they before that did well
But little of the night they slept
and at the dawn they asked forgiveness
And in their wealth was what was due to him who asked, and him who was kept back from asking
And in the earth are signs to those who are sure
and in yourselves,- what! do ye not then see
And in the heaven is your provision and that which ye are promised
But by the Lord of the heaven and the earth! verily, it is the truth,- like that which ye do utter
Has the tale of Abraham's honoured guests reached thee
When they entered in unto him and said, 'Peace!' he said, 'Peace!-a people unrecognised.
And he went aside unto his people and fetched a fat calf
and brought it nigh unto them; said he, 'Will ye then not eat?
And he felt a secret fear of them: said they, Fear not.' And they gave him glad tidings of a knowing boy
And his wife approached with a noise, and smote her face, and said, 'An old woman, barren!
Said they, 'Thus says thy Lord, He is knowing, wise.
Said he, 'And about what is your errand, O ye messengers?
They said, 'Verily, we are sent unto a sinful people
to send upon them stones of clay
marked from thy Lord for the extravagant.
And we sent out therefrom such as were in it of the believers
but we only found therein one house of Muslims
And we left therein a sign to those who fear the grievous woe
And in Moses; when we sent him to Pharaoh with obvious authority
But he turned his back towards his column and said, 'A sorcerer or mad!
And we seized him and his hosts and hurled them into the sea; for he was to be blamed
And in 'Ad, when we sent against them a desolating wind
that left naught on which it came without making it ashes
And in Thamud, when it was said to them, 'Enjoy yourselves for a season.
But they revolted against the bidding of their Lord; and the noise caught them as they looked on
And they could not stand upright, and they were not helped
And the people of Noah of yore; verily, they were an abominable people
And the heaven - we have built it with might, and, verily, we do surely give it ample space
And the earth - we have spread it out; and how well we lay it out
And of everything have we created pairs, haply ye may be mindful
Flee then to God; verily, I am a plain warner from Him to you
And do not set with God another god; verily, I am a plain warner from Him to you
Thus there came no apostle to those before them, but they said, 'A sorcerer, mad!
Do they bequeath it to each other? Yea, they are an outrageous people
So turn thy back upon them, so thou wilt not be to blame
And remind; for, verily, the reminder shall profit the believers
And I have not created the ginn and mankind save that they may worship me
I do not desire any provision from them, and I do not wish them to feed me
Verily, God, He is the provider, endowed with steady might
Verily, for those who injure (the Apostle) shall be a portion like the portion of their fellows, but let them not hurry Me
Then woe to those who misbelieve from their day which they are threatened
