51:1  By those scattering broadcast
51:2  And those bearing the load
51:3  And those running easily
51:4  And those distributing the Affair! -
51:5  What you are promised is surely true
51:6  And the Judgment will surely come to pass
51:7  By the heaven full of paths
51:8  Surely you are of warying opinion -
51:9  He is turned away from it who would be turned away
51:10  Cursed by the liars
51:11  Who are in an abyss, neglectful
51:12  They ask: When is the day of Judgment
51:13  (It is) the day when they are tried at the Fire
51:14  Taste your persecution! This is what you would hasten on
51:15  Surely the dutiful are amidst Gardens and fountains
51:16  Taking that which their Lord gives them. Surely they were before that the doers of good
51:17  The used to sleep but little at night
51:18  And in the morning they asked (Divine) protection
51:19  And in their wealth there was a due share for the beggar and for one who is denied (good)
51:20  And in the earth are signs for those who are sure
51:21  And in yourselves -- do you not see
51:22  And in the heavens is your sustenance and that which you are promised
51:23  So by the Lord of the heavens and the earth! it is surely the truth, just as you speak
51:24  Has the story of Abraham’s honoured guests reached thee
51:25  When they came to him, they said: Peace! Peace! said he. Strangers
51:26  Then he turned aside to his family and brought a fat calf
51:27  So he placed it before them. He said: Will you not eat
51:28  So he conceived a fear of them. They said: Fear not. And they gave him the good news of a boy possessing knowledge
51:29  Then his wife came up in grief, and she smote her face and said: A barren old woman
51:30  They said: Thus says thy Lord. Surely He is the Wise, the Knowing
51:31  He said: What is your errand, O messengers
51:32  They said: We have been sent to a guilty peopl
51:33  That we may send upon them stones of clay
51:34  Marked from thy Lord for the prodigal
51:35  Then we brought forth such believers as were there
51:36  And We found there but a (single) house of Muslims
51:37  And We left therein a sign for those who fear the painful chastisement
51:38  And in Moses, when We sent him to Pharaoh with clear authority
51:39  But he turned away on account of his might and said: An enchanter or a madman
51:40  So We seized him and his hosts and hurled them into the sea, and he was blameable
51:41  And in ‘Ad, when We sent upon them the destructive wind
51:42  It spared naught that it came against, but it made it like ashes
51:43  And in Thamud, when it was said to them: Enjoy yourselves for a while
51:44  But they revolted against the commandment of their Lord, so the punishment overtook them, while they saw
51:45  So they were unable to rise up, nor could they defend themselves
51:46  And the people of Noah before. Surely they were a transgressing people
51:47  And the heaven, We raised it high with power, and We are Makers of the vast extent
51:48  And the earth, We have spread it out. How well We prepared it
51:49  And of everything We have created pairs that you may be mindful
51:50  So flee to Allah. Surely I am a plain warner to you from Him
51:51  And do not set up with Allah another god. Surely I am a plain warner to you from Him
51:52  Thus there came not a messenger to those before them but they said: An enchanter or a madman
51:53  Have they charged each other with this? Nay, they are an inordinate people
51:54  So turn away from them, for thou art not to blame
51:55  And remind, for reminding profits the believers
51:56  And I have not created the jinn and the men except that they should serve Me
51:57  I desire no sustenance from them, nor do I desire that they should feed Me
51:58  Surely Allah is the Bestower of sustenance, the Lord of Power, the Strong
51:59  Surely the lot of the wrongdoers is as was the lot of their companions, so let them not ask Me to hasten on
51:60  Woe, then, to those who disbelieve because of that day of theirs which they are promised
