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