51:1  By the winds that scatter the dust
51:2  and those that bear the burden [of the rain]
51:3  and those speeding along with ease
51:4  and distributing the command of God at His behest
51:5  What you are promised is certainly true
51:6  the Judgement will surely come to pas
51:7  by the heaven full of tracks
51:8  surely you are deeply at variance [as to what to believe]
51:9  he is turned away from [the truth] who is destined to be so turned away
51:10  May the conjecturers perish
51:11  who flounder in the depths of ignorance
51:12  They ask, When will the Day of Judgement come
51:13  It will be the Day when they are tormented at the Fire
51:14  Taste your trial. This is what you sought to hasten
51:15  Surely the God-fearing will find themselves in the midst of gardens and springs
51:16  They shall receive what their Lord will bestow on them. They have done good works in the past
51:17  sleeping little in the night-time
51:18  praying at dawn for God's pardon
51:19  and sharing their possessions with the beggars and the deprived
51:20  On the earth, and in yourselves
51:21  there are signs for firm believers. Do you not see then
51:22  In heaven is your sustenance, and also that which you are promised
51:23  By the Lord of the heaven and the earth, it is certainly the truth. It is as true as your ability to speak
51:24  Have you heard the story of Abrahams honoured guests
51:25  When they came to him they said, Peace! He answered, Peace! [saying to himself]. They are strangers
51:26  Then he turned quickly to his household, and brought a fatted 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, Dont be afraid; and they gave him the good news of a son who would be endowed with knowledge
51:29  Then his wife came forward, crying and beating her brow. She said, I am surely a barren, old woman
51:30  Such is the will of your Lord, they replied. He is the Wise, the All Knowing
51:31  Abraham asked, What is your errand, O messengers
51:32  They replied, We have been sent to a sinful people
51:33  so that we may bring down upon them a shower of stones of clay
51:34  which are marked by your Lord for the punishment of those guilty of excesses
51:35  We saved all the faithful in the town
51:36  We found in it only one household of true believer
51:37  and We left therein a sign for those who fear a painful punishment
51:38  There is another sign in Moses: We sent him to Pharaoh with clear authority
51:39  But he turned his back, he and his courtiers, and said, This is a sorcerer or a madman
51:40  Then We seized him and his army and cast them all into the sea: he himself [Pharaoh] was to blame
51:41  There is another sign in the [tribe of] Ad, when We sent against them a life-destroying win
51:42  and it destroyed everything over which it passed and reduced it to dust
51:43  In the Thamud [there was another sign], when they were told, Make the most of your lives for a while
51:44  But they rebelled against the command of their Lord. So the thunderbolt overtook them while they looked on
51:45  they could not stand up again, nor could they defend themselves
51:46  [We destroyed] the people of Noah before them. They were certainly a sinful people
51:47  We built the universe with Our might, giving it its vast expanse
51:48  We have spread out the earthhow well We have spread it ou
51:49  and We created pairs of all things so that you might reflect
51:50  Therefore hasten to God; truly, I am sent by Him to give you clear warning
51:51  Do not set up another god, along with God. I come from Him to warn you plainly
51:52  Likewise, there came no messenger to those before them, but they said, He is a sorcerer or a madman
51:53  Have they handed this down to one another? They are certainly a people who exceed all bounds
51:54  so ignore them you are not to blam
51:55  but keep on exhorting them, for exhortation benefits the believers
51:56  I created the jinn and mankind only so that they might worship Me
51:57  I seek no sustenance from them, nor do I want them to feed M
51:58  it is God who is the great Sustainer, the Mighty One, the Invincible
51:59  The wrongdoers will meet the same fate as their predecessors let them not ask Me to hasten on [the punishment]
51:60  woe, then, to those who are bent on denying the truth, when the Day arrives which they have been promised
