The Study Quran rendition of Surah The Winnowing Winds, The Scatterers(adh-Dhariyat)
51:1 By the scatterers as they scatter,
51:2 and by those that bear a burden,
51:3 by those that course with ease,
51:4 and by those that apportion the Command,
51:5 verily what you are promised is true,
51:6 and truly the judgment shall come to pass.
51:7 By Heaven possessed of paths,
51:8 truly you are of differing claims.
51:9 Whosoever has been turned away shall from it be turned away.
51:10 Perish those who conjecture!
51:11 Those who blunder along in a stupor,
51:12 asking, “When is the Day of Judgment?”
51:13 A day when they are tried upon the Fire.
51:14 Taste your trial! This is what you sought to hasten!
51:15 Truly the reverent shall be amidst gardens and springs,
51:16 partaking of that which their Lord has given them. Truly they were virtuous aforetime.
51:17 Little of the night did they slumber,
51:18 and ere dawn would seek forgiveness.
51:19 And in their wealth was a due for the beggar and the deprived.
51:20 Upon the earth are signs for those possessing certainty,
51:21 and within your souls. Do you not then behold?
51:22 And in Heaven is your provision and that which you were promised.
51:23 So by the Lord of Heaven and earth, it is indeed true—as it is that you are endowed with speech.
51:24 Hast thou heard tell of Abraham’s honored guests,
51:25 when they entered upon him and said, “Peace!” he said, “Peace—an unfamiliar folk.”
51:26 Then he went quietly to his family and came with a fattened calf.
51:27 He placed it close to them, saying, “Will you not eat?”
51:28 Then he conceived a fear of them. They said, “Fear not!” and gave him glad tidings of a knowing son.
51:29 Then his wife came forward with a loud cry; she struck her face and said, “A barren old woman!”
51:30 They said, “Thus has thy Lord decreed. Truly He is the Wise, the Knowing.”
51:31 He said, “What is your errand, O messengers?”
51:32 They said, “We have been sent unto a guilty people,
51:33 to send upon them stones of clay
51:34 marked by thy Lord for the prodigal.”
51:35 So We brought forth those among them who were believers;
51:36 yet We did not find therein but one house of submitters.
51:37 And We left therein a sign for those who fear the painful punishment.
51:38 And in Moses [We left a sign], when We sent him to Pharaoh with a manifest authority.
51:39 But he turned away with his court and said, “A sorcerer or one possessed.”
51:40 So We seized him and his hosts and cast them into the sea, for he was blameworthy.
51:41 And in ?Ad [We left a sign], when We sent upon them the barren wind.
51:42 Naught did it leave that it came upon, but that it made it as bones decayed.
51:43 And in Thamud [We left a sign], when it was said unto them, “Enjoy yourselves for a time.”
51:44 Then they insolently defied the Command of their Lord, and the thunderbolt seized them as they looked on.
51:45 So they were not able to rise; nor could they help one another.
51:46 As for the people of Noah before, truly they were an iniquitous people.
51:47 And the sky We established with might; truly We make vast!
51:48 And the earth We laid out—what excellent spreaders!
51:49 And of all things We created pairs, that haply you may remember.
51:50 So flee unto God. Truly I am a clear warner unto you from Him.
51:51 And do not set up another god along with God. Truly I am a clear warner unto you from Him.
51:52 Likewise, there came no messenger unto those before them, but that they said, “A sorcerer or one possessed.”
51:53 Do they exhort one another to it? Nay, they are a rebellious people.
51:54 So turn away from them, for thou shalt not be blamed.
51:55 And remind, for truly the Reminder benefits the believers.
51:56 I did not create jinn and mankind, save to worship Me.
51:57 I desire no provision from them; nor do I desire that they should feed Me.
51:58 Truly God is the Provider, the Possessor of Strength, the Firm.
51:59 And surely for those who do wrong are sins like unto the sins of their companions; so let them not seek to hasten.
51:60 Woe unto those who disbelieve on account of the Day that they are promised.
