51:1  By the winnowing winds of ones that winnow
51:2  by the burden-bearers, the ones who carry a heavy burden
51:3  and the ones that run with ease
51:4  and the ones who distribute the command,
51:5  truly, what you are promised is that which is sincere.
51:6  And, truly, the judgment is that which falls.
51:7  By the heaven that is full of tracks,
51:8  you are ones who are at variance in your sayings.
51:9  He is misled there by he who was misled.
51:10  Perdition to those who guess,
51:11  ones who are inattentive because of obstinacy.
51:12  They ask: When will the Day of Judgment be?
51:13  A Day when they are tried over the fire:
51:14  Experience your test. This is that for which you had been seeking to hasten.
51:15  Truly, the ones who are Godfearing will be in the Garden and springs,
51:16  ones who take what their Lord gave them. Truly, they had been before this—ones who are doers of good.
51:17  They had been slumbering little during the night.
51:18  And at the breaking of the day, they ask for forgiveness.
51:19  And there is an obligation from their wealth for the one who begs and the one who is deprived.
51:20  On the earth are signs, for the ones that are certain
51:21  and in yourselves. Will you not, then, perceive?
51:22  And in the heaven is your provision as you are promised
51:23  by the Lord of the heaven and the earth. It is, truly, The Truth just as you yourselves speak.
51:24  Truly, approached thee the discourse of guests of Abraham, the ones who are honored?
51:25  When they entered to him they said: Peace. He said: Peace, to a folk, ones who are unknown.
51:26  Then, he turned upon his people and brought about a fattened calf
51:27  so he brought it near to them. He said: Will you not eat?
51:28  Then, he sensed a fear of them; they said: Be not in awe. They gave him good tidings of a knowing boy.
51:29  Then, his woman came forward with a loud cry. She slapped her face and said: I am an old barren woman!
51:30  They said: Thus, spoke thy Lord. Truly, He is The Wise, The Knowing.
51:31  Abraham said: O ones who are sent, what is your business?
51:32  They said: That we were sent to a folk, ones who sin,
51:33  to send on them rocks of clay,
51:34  ones distinguished by thy Lord for ones who are excessive.
51:35  So We brought out whoever had been in it of the ones who believe.
51:36  But We found in it nothing but a house of ones who submit to God.
51:37  And We left a sign in it for those who fear the painful punishment.
51:38  And in Moses, then, We sent him to Pharaoh with a clear authority.
51:39  Then, Pharaoh turned away to his court. He said: One who is a sorcerer, one who is possessed!
51:40  So We took him and his armies and cast them forth into the water of the sea and he is one who is answerable.
51:41  And in Ad, when We sent against them the withering wind.
51:42  It forsakes not anything it approached, but made it like it was decayed.
51:43  And in Thamud, when it was said to them: Take joy for a while.
51:44  Yet they defied the command of their Lord so the thunderbolt took them while they look on.
51:45  They were neither able to stand up nor had they been ones who are aided.
51:46  And the folk of Noah from before. Truly, they had been a folk, ones who disobey.
51:47  And We built the heaven with potency. And, truly, We are ones who extend wide.
51:48  And the earth, We spread it forth. How excellent are the ones who spread!
51:49  And of everything We created pairs so that perhaps you will recollect.
51:50  So run away towards God. Truly, I am to you a clear warner from Him.
51:51  And make not with God any other god. Truly, I am to you a clear warner from Him.
51:52  There approached not those who were before them any Messenger but that they said: One who is a sorcerer or one who is possessed!
51:53  Counseled they this to one another? Nay! They are a folk, ones who are defiant!
51:54  So turn thou away from them that thou be not one who is reproached.
51:55  And remind, for, truly, the reminder profits the ones who believe.
51:56  And I created not jinn and humankind but that they worship Me.
51:57  I want no provision from them nor want I that they feed Me.
51:58  Truly, God, He is The Provider, The Possessor of Strength, The Sure.
51:59  And, truly, the impiety of those who did wrong is like the impiety of their companions. So let them not seek to hasten the Judgment.
51:60  Then, woe to those who disbelieved in that Day of theirs that they are promised.
