By the clouds which scatter with SCATTERING
And those which bear their load
And by those which speed lightly along
And those which apportion by command
True, indeed, is that with which ye are threatened
And lo! the judgment will surely come
By the star-tracked heaven
Ye are discordant in what ye say
But whose turneth him from the truth, is turned from it by a divine decree
Who are bewildered in the depths of ignorance
They ask, "When this day of judgment?"
On that day they shall be tormented at the fire
"Taste ye of this your torment, whose speedy coming ye challenged."
But the God-fearing shall dwell amid gardens and fountains
Enjoying what their Lord hath given them, because, aforetime they were well-doers
But little of the night was it that they slept
And at dawn they prayed for pardon
And gave due share of their wealth to the suppliant and the outcast
On Earth are signs for men of firm belief
And also in your own selves: Will ye not then behold them
The Heaven hath sustenance for you, and it containeth that which you are promised
By the Lord then of the heaven and of the earth, I swear that this is the truth, even as ye speak yourselves
Hath the story reached thee of Abraham's honoured guests
When they went in unto him and said, "Peace!" he replied, "Peace: - they are strangers."
And he went apart to his family, and brought a fatted calf
And set it before them. He said, "Eat ye not?"
And he conceived a fear of them. They said to him, "Fear not;" and announced to him a wise son
His wife came up with outcry: she smote her face and said, "What I, old and barren!"
They said, "Thus saith thy Lord. He truly is the Wise, the Knowing."
Said he, "And what, O messengers, is your errand?"
They said, "To a wicked people are we sent
To hurl upon them stones of clay
Destined by thy Lord for men guilty of excesses."
And we brought forth the believers who were in the city
But we found not in it but one family of Muslims
And signs we left in it for those who dread the afflictive chastisement,
And in Moses: when we sent him to Pharaoh with manifest power
But relying on his forces he turned his back and said, "Sorcerer, or Possessed."
So we seized him and his hosts and cast them into the sea; for of all blame was he worthy
And in Ad: when we sent against them the desolating blast
It touched not aught over which it came, but it turned it to dust
And in Themoud: when it was said to them, "Enjoy yourselves for yet a while."
But they rebelled against their Lord's command: so the tempest took them as they watched its coming
They were not able to stand upright, and could not help themselves
And we destroyed the people of Noah, before them; for an impious people were they
And the Heaven - with our hands have we built it up, and given it its expanse
And the Earth - we have stretched it out like a carpet; and how smoothly have we spread it forth
And of everything have we created pairs: that haply ye may reflect
Fly then to God: I come to you from him a plain warner
And set not up another god with God: I come to you from him a plain warner
Even thus came there no apostle to those who flourished before them, but they exclaimed, "Sorcerer, or Possessed."
Have they made a legacy to one another of this scoff? Yes, they are a rebel people
Turn away, then, from them, and thou shalt not incur reproach
Yet warn them, for, in truth, warning will profit the believers
I have not created Djinn and men, but that they should worship me
I require not sustenance from them, neither require I that they feed me
Verily, God is the sole sustainer: possessed of might: the unshaken
Therefore to those who injure thee shall be a fate like the fate of their fellows of old. Let them not challenge me to hasten it
Woe then to the infidels, because of their threatened day
