51:1  By the (Winds) that scatter broadcast
51:2  And those that lift and bear away heavy weights
51:3  And those that flow with ease and gentleness
51:4  And those that distribute and apportion by Command;
51:5  Verily that which ye are promised is true
51:6  And verily Judgment and Justice must indeed come to pass
51:7  By the Sky with (its) numerous Paths
51:8  Truly ye are in a doctrine discordant
51:9  Through which are deluded (away from the Truth) such as would be deluded
51:10  Woe to the falsehood-mongers,
51:11  Those who (flounder) heedless in a flood of confusion
51:12  They ask, "When will be the Day of Judgment and Justice?"
51:13  (It will be) a Day when they will be tried (and tested) over the Fire
51:14  "Taste ye your trial! This is what ye used to ask to be hastened!"
51:15  As to the Righteous, they will be in the midst of Gardens and Springs
51:16  Taking joy in the things which their Lord gives them, because, before then, they lived a good life
51:17  They were in the habit of sleeping but little by night
51:18  And in the hour of early dawn, they (were found) praying for Forgiveness
51:19  And in their wealth and possessions (was remembered) the right of the (needy,) him who asked, and him who (for some reason) was prevented (from asking)
51:20  On the earth are signs for those of assured Faith
51:21  As also in your own selves: Will ye not then see
51:22  And in heaven is your Sustenance, as (also) that which ye are promised
51:23  Then, by the Lord of heaven and earth, this is the very Truth, as much as the fact that ye can speak intelligently to each other
51:24  Has the story reached thee, of the honoured guests of Abraham
51:25  Behold, they entered his presence, and said: "Peace!" He said, "Peace!" (and thought, "These seem) unusual people."
51:26  Then he turned quickly to his household, brought out a fatted calf
51:27  And placed it before them.. he said, "Will ye not eat?"
51:28  (When they did not eat), He conceived a fear of them. They said, "Fear not," and they gave him glad tidings of a son endowed with knowledge
51:29  But his wife came forward (laughing) aloud: she smote her forehead and said: "A barren old woman!"
51:30  They said, "Even so has thy Lord spoken: and He is full of Wisdom and Knowledge."
51:31  (Abraham) said: "And what, O ye Messengers, is your errand (now)?"
51:32  They said, "We have been sent to a people (deep) in sin;
51:33  "To bring on, on them, (a shower of) stones of clay (brimstone)
51:34  "Marked as from thy Lord for those who trespass beyond bounds."
51:35  Then We evacuated those of the Believers who were there
51:36  But We found not there any just (Muslim) persons except in one house
51:37  And We left there a Sign for such as fear the Grievous Penalty
51:38  And in Moses (was another Sign): Behold, We sent him to Pharaoh, with authority manifest
51:39  But (Pharaoh) turned back with his Chiefs, and said, "A sorcerer, or one possessed!"
51:40  So We took him and his forces, and threw them into the sea; and his was the blame
51:41  And in the 'Ad (people) (was another Sign): Behold, We sent against them the devastating Wind
51:42  It left nothing whatever that it came up against, but reduced it to ruin and rottenness
51:43  And in the Thamud (was another Sign): Behold, they were told, "Enjoy (your brief day) for a little while!"
51:44  But they insolently defied the Command of their Lord: So the stunning noise (of an earthquake) seized them, even while they were looking on
51:45  Then they could not even stand (on their feet), nor could they help themselves
51:46  So were the People of Noah before them for they wickedly transgressed
51:47  With power and skill did We construct the Firmament: for it is We Who create the vastness of pace
51:48  And We have spread out the (spacious) earth: How excellently We do spread out
51:49  And of every thing We have created pairs: That ye may receive instruction
51:50  Hasten ye then (at once) to God: I am from Him a Warner to you, clear and open
51:51  And make not another an object of worship with God: I am from Him a Warner to you, clear and open
51:52  Similarly, no apostle came to the Peoples before them, but they said (of him) in like manner, "A sorcerer, or one possessed"
51:53  Is this the legacy they have transmitted, one to another? Nay, they are themselves a people transgressing beyond bounds
51:54  So turn away from them: not thine is the blame
51:55  But teach (thy Message) for teaching benefits the Believers
51:56  I have only created Jinns and men, that they may serve Me
51:57  No Sustenance do I require of them, nor do I require that they should feed Me
51:58  For God is He Who gives (all) Sustenance,- Lord of Power,- Steadfast (for ever)
51:59  For the Wrong-doers, their portion is like unto the portion of their fellows (of earlier generations): then let them not ask Me to hasten (that portion)
51:60  Woe, then, to the Unbelievers, on account of that Day of theirs which they have been promised
