51:1  By the scattering [winds] that scatter [the clouds]
51:2  by the [rain] bearing [clouds] laden [with water]
51:3  by [the ships] which move gently [on the sea]
51:4  by [the angels] who dispense [livelihood] by [His] command
51:5  indeed what you are promised is true
51:6  and indeed the retribution will surely come to pass
51:7  By the sky full of adornment [with stars]
51:8  indeed you are of different opinions
51:9  He is turned away from it who has been turned away [from the truth]
51:10  Perish the liars
51:11  who are heedless in a stupor
51:12  They ask, ‘When will be the Day of Retribution?’
51:13  It is the day when they will be tormented in the Fire
51:14  [and will be told]: ‘Taste your torment. This is what you used to hasten.’
51:15  Indeed the Godwary will be amid gardens and springs
51:16  receiving what their Lord has given them, for they had been virtuous aforetime
51:17  They used to sleep a little during the night
51:18  and at dawns they would plead for forgiveness,
51:19  and there was a share in their wealth for the beggar and the deprived
51:20  In the earth are signs for those who have conviction
51:21  and in your souls [as well]. Will you not then perceive
51:22  And in the sky is your provision and what you are promised
51:23  By the Lord of the sky and the earth, it is indeed the truth, just as [it is a fact that] you speak
51:24  Did you receive the story of Abraham’s honoured guests
51:25  When they entered into his presence, they said, ‘Peace!’ ‘Peace!’ He answered, ‘[You are] an unfamiliar folk.’
51:26  Then he retired to his family and brought a fat [roasted] calf
51:27  and put it near them. He said, ‘Will you not eat?’
51:28  Then he felt a fear of them. They said, ‘Do not be afraid!’ and they gave him the good news of a wise son
51:29  Then his wife came forward crying [with joy]. She beat her face, and said, ‘A barren old woman!’
51:30  They said, ‘So has your Lord said. Indeed He is the All-wise, the All-knowing.’
51:31  He said, ‘O messengers, what is now your errand?’
51:32  They said, ‘We have been sent toward a guilty people
51:33  that We may rain upon them stones of clay
51:34  marked with your Lord for the profligate
51:35  So We picked out those who were in it of the faithful
51:36  but We did not find there other than one house of muslims
51:37  and We have left therein a sign for those who fear a painful punishment.’
51:38  And in Moses [too there is a sign] when We sent him to Pharaoh with a manifest authority
51:39  But he turned away assured of his might, and said, ‘A magician or a crazy man!’
51:40  So We seized him and his hosts, and cast them into the sea, while he was blameworthy
51:41  And in ‘a€d when We unleashed upon them a barren wind
51:42  It left nothing that it came upon without making it like decayed bones
51:43  And in Thamud, when they were told, ‘Enjoy for a while.’
51:44  Then they defied the command of their Lord; so the thunderbolt seized them as they looked on
51:45  So they were neither able to rise up, nor to come to one another’s aid
51:46  And the people of Noah aforetime. Indeed they were a transgressing lot
51:47  We have built the sky with might, and indeed it is We who are its expanders
51:48  And the earth We have spread it out, so how excellent spreaders We have been
51:49  In all things We have created pairs so that you may take admonition
51:50  [Say,] ‘So flee toward Allah. Indeed I am a manifest warner to you from Him
51:51  Do not set up another god besides Allah. Indeed I am a manifest warner to you from Him.’
51:52  So it was that there did not come to those who were before them any apostle but they said, ‘A magician,’ or ‘A crazy man!’
51:53  Did they enjoin this upon one another?! Rather they were a rebellious lot
51:54  So turn away from them, for you will not be blameworthy
51:55  And admonish, for admonition indeed benefits the faithful
51:56  I did not create the jinn and the humans except that they may worship Me
51:57  I desire no provision from them, nor do I desire that they should feed Me
51:58  Indeed it is Allah who is the All-provider, Powerful, All-strong
51:59  Indeed the lot of those who do wrong [now] will be like the lot of their [earlier] counterparts. So let them not ask Me to hasten on [that fate]
51:60  Woe to the faithless for the day they are promised
