Abdel Haleem rendition of Surah The Winnowing Winds, The Scatterers(adh-Dhariyat)
---
51:1 By those [winds] that scatter far and wide,
51:2 and those that are heavily laden,
51:3 that speed freely,
51:4 that distribute [rain] as ordained!
51:5 What you [people] are promised is true:
51:6 the Judgement will come––
51:7 by the sky with its pathways,
51:8 you differ in what you say––
51:9 those who turn away from it are [truly] deceived.
51:10 Perish the liars,
51:11 those steeped in error and unaware!
51:12 They ask, ‘When is this Judgement Day coming?’
51:13 On a Day when they will be punished by the Fire,
51:14 ‘Taste the punishment! This is what you wished to hasten.’
51:15 The righteous will be in Gardens with [flowing] springs.
51:16 They will receive their Lord’s gifts because of the good they did before:
51:17 sleeping only little at night,
51:18 praying at dawn for God’s forgiveness,
51:19 giving a rightful share of their wealth to the beggar and the deprived.
51:20 On earth there are signs for those with sure faith––
51:21 and in yourselves too, do you not see?––
51:22 in the sky is your sustenance and all that you are promised.
51:23 By the Lord of the heavens and earth! All this is as real as your speaking.
51:24 [Muhammad], have you heard the story of the honoured guests of Abraham?
51:25 They went in to see him and said, ‘Peace.’ ‘Peace,’ he said, [adding to himself] ‘These people are strangers.’
51:26 He turned quickly to his household, brought out a fat calf,
51:27 and placed it before them. ‘Will you not eat?’ he said,
51:28 beginning to be afraid of them, but they said, ‘Do not be afraid.’ They gave him good news of a son who would be gifted with knowledge.
51:29 His wife then entered with a loud cry, struck her face, and said, ‘A barren old woman?’
51:30 but they said, ‘It will be so. This is what your Lord said, and He is the Wise, the All Knowing.’
51:31 Abraham said, ‘What is your errand, messengers?’
51:32 They said, ‘We are sent to a people lost in sin,
51:33 to bring down rocks of clay,
51:34 marked by your Lord for those who exceed all bounds.’
51:35 We brought out such believers as were there-
51:36 We found only one household devoted to God-
51:37 and left the town to be a sign for those who fear the painful punishment.
51:38 There is another sign in Moses: We sent him to Pharaoh with clear authority.
51:39 Pharaoh turned away with his supporters, saying, ‘This is a sorcerer, or maybe a madman,’
51:40 so We seized him and his forces and threw them into the sea: he was to blame.
51:41 There is another sign in the Ad: We sent the life-destroying wind against them
51:42 and it reduced everything it came up against to shreds.
51:43 And also in the Thamud: it was said to them, ‘Make the most of your lives for a while,’
51:44 but they rebelled against their Lord’s command, so the blast took them. They looked on helplessly:
51:45 they could not even remain standing, let alone defend themselves.
51:46 Before that We destroyed the people of Noah. They were a truly sinful people!
51:47 We built the heavens with Our power and made them vast,
51:48 We spread out the earth- how well We smoothed it out!-
51:49 and We created pairs of all things so that you [people] might take note.
51:50 [So, say to them, Prophet], ‘Quickly, turn to God- I am sent by Him to give you clear warning-
51:51 and do not set up any other god alongside Him. I am sent by Him to give you clear warning!’
51:52 Every previous people to whom a messenger was sent also said, ‘A sor-cerer, or maybe a madman!’
51:53 Did they tell one another to do this? No! They are a people who exceed all bounds,
51:54 so ignore them [Prophet]- you are not to blame-
51:55 and go on reminding [people], it is good for those who believe to be reminded.
51:56 I created jinn and mankind only to worship Me:
51:57 I want no provision from them, nor do I want them to feed Me-
51:58 God is the Provider, the Lord of Power, the Ever Mighty.
51:59 The evildoers, like their predecessors, will have a share of punishment- they need not ask Me to hasten it-
51:60 and woe betide those who deny the truth on the Day they have been promised.
