51:1  By the winds which scatter dust
51:2  which carry clouds laden with water
51:3  which then smoothly speed along
51:4  and execute the great task of apportioning (rainfall)
51:5  surely what you are being warned against is true
51:6  and the Judgement shall doubtlessly take place
51:7  By the heaven with its numerous forms
51:8  surely you are at variance (about the Hereafter)
51:9  though only those who are averse to the Truth will turn away from (believing in it)
51:10  Doomed are the conjecturer
51:11  who are steeped in ignorance and heedlessness
51:12  They ask: "When will the Day of Judgement be?"
51:13  It will be the Day when they shall be scourged by the Fir
51:14  (and be told): "Taste your ordeal! This is what you were seeking to hasten."
51:15  As for the God-fearing, they shall be in the midst of gardens and fountains
51:16  joyously receiving what their Lord will have granted them. Verily they did good works before (the coming of this Day)
51:17  they used to sleep but little by night
51:18  and would ask for forgiveness at dawn
51:19  and in their wealth there was a rightful share for him who would ask and for the destitute
51:20  There are many Signs on earth for those of sure faith
51:21  and also in your own selves. Do you not see
51:22  And in heaven is your provision and also what you are being promised
51:23  So, by the Lord of the heaven and the earth, this is certainly true, as true as the fact of your speaking
51:24  (O Prophet), did the story of Abraham´s honoured guests reach you
51:25  When they came to him, they said: "Peace"; he said: "Peace also be to you; (you seem to be) a group of strangers."
51:26  Then he went back to his family and brought a fat roasted cal
51:27  and laid it before them, saying: "Will you not eat?"
51:28  Then he became afraid of them. They said: "Fear not," and announced to him the good news of (the birth of) a boy endowed with knowledge
51:29  So hearing his wife went forth shouting. She struck her face and exclaimed: "A barren old woman am I."
51:30  They said: "So has your Lord said (that you shall have a boy). Surely He is Most Wise, All-Knowing."
51:31  Abraham said: "Envoys (of Allah), what is your errand?"
51:32  They replied: "Behold, we have been sent to a wicked peopl
51:33  that we may unleash a shower of clay-stone
51:34  marked by your Lord upon those who go beyond the limits."
51:35  Then We evacuated there from all the believer
51:36  – and We did not find there any, apart from a single house of Muslims
51:37  and We left therein a Sign for those who fear the grievous chastisement
51:38  There is also a Sign for you in the story of Moses when We sent him with a clear authority to Pharaoh
51:39  But Pharaoh turned away, showing arrogance on account of his power, and said (about Moses): "He is either a sorcerer or a madman."
51:40  So We seized him and his hosts, and cast them into the sea. He became an object of much blame
51:41  There is also a Sign for you in (the story of) Ad, when We let loose upon them an ominous win
51:42  that left nothing that it came upon without reducing it to rubble
51:43  There is also a Sign for you in (the story of) Thamud. They were told: "Enjoy yourselves for a while."
51:44  But they brazenly disobeyed their Lord´s command, and then a sudden chastisement overtook them while they looked on
51:45  They were unable even to stand up or protect themselves
51:46  Before all these We destroyed the people of Noah: they were a wicked people
51:47  And heaven – We made it with Our Own Power and We have the Power to do so
51:48  And the earth – We spread it out, and how well have We smoothed it
51:49  And of everything We have created pairs; perhaps you will take heed
51:50  Flee, therefore, to Allah. Surely I am a clear warner to you from Him
51:51  and do not set up any deity with Allah. Surely I am a clear warner to you from Him
51:52  Thus has it been (in the past): never did a Messenger come to the nations that preceded them but they said: "(He is) a sorcerer, or a mad-man."
51:53  Have they arrived at a common understanding concerning this? No; but they are a people given to transgression
51:54  So turn your attention away from them; you shall incur no blame
51:55  Do, however, keep exhorting them; for exhortation benefits those endowed with faith
51:56  I created the jinn and humans for nothing else but that they may serve Me
51:57  I desire from them no provision, nor do I want them to feed Me
51:58  Surely Allah is the Bestower of all provision, the Lord of all power, the Strong
51:59  The wrong-doers shall receive a portion of the chastisements as their fellows (of yore). So let them not rush Me
51:60  Woe, then, betide those who disbelieved in that Day of theirs which they are being asked to hold in dread
