51:1  By the spreaders spreading,
51:2  and by those bearers of loads,
51:3  and by those moving gently,
51:4  and by those distributing as commanded—
51:5  what youpl are promised is true.
51:6  And, indeed, the Recompense is sure to come.
51:7  By the heaven comprising interwoven tracks,
51:8  indeed, youpl are of different opinions.
51:9  Averted from it is he who is averted.
51:10  May the conjecturers perish!
51:11  Those who are unmindful and in perplexity,
51:12  asking, “When is the Day of Recompense?”
51:13  The day they are heated on the Fire:
51:14  “Taste your trial; this is what youpl, (challengingly) have been asking to be hastened.”
51:15  Indeed, the mindful (of God) are amidst Gardens (of Paradise) and springs,
51:16  taking what their Lord has given them. Indeed, before that, they used to excel in doing good:
51:17  they used to lie down but little of the night,
51:18  and at dawn they would seek forgiveness,
51:19  and in their wealth was a share for the asker and the deprived.
51:20  And on earth are signs for those who believe with certitude,
51:21  and within yourselves; do you not see?
51:22  And in the heaven is your provision and what you are promised.
51:23  So by the Lord of the heaven and the earth, indeed, it is as true as the fact that youpl (can) pronounce.
51:24  Has the story of Abraham’s honorable guests reached yousg?
51:25  When they entered upon him they said, “Peace.” He said, “Peace, strangers.”
51:26  And he slipped away to his family and brought a fatted calf
51:27  and set it before them. He said, “Will you not eat?”
51:28  And he was filled with apprehension towards them. They said, “Do not be afraid,” and they announced to him the glad tidings of a knowledgeable boy.
51:29  So his wife came forward with a shriek, then clasped her face and said, “A barren old woman!”
51:30  They said, “Thus your Lord has said; He is the All-Wise, the All- Knowing.”
51:31  He said, “So what is your business, O emissaries?”
51:32  They said, “We have been sent to a criminal people,
51:33  to unleash upon them rocks of clay,
51:34  marked by yoursg Lord for the extremists.”
51:35  Then We brought out all the believers who were in it.
51:36  Yet We found in it only one household of Muslims,
51:37  and We left in it a sign for those who fear the painful punishment.
51:38  And in Moses (there is also a sign) —when We sent him to Pharaoh with an evident manifestation.
51:39  But he turned away with his warlords and said, “A sorcerer or a madman.”
51:40  So We seized him and his troops and flung them into the waters, and he was to blame.
51:41  And (likewise) in (the people of) Ād—We sent against them the Barren Wind,
51:42  sparing nothing it came upon without rendering it like decayed ruins.
51:43  And (likewise) in (the people of) Thamûd—they were told, “Enjoy yourselves for a while.”
51:44  But they defied the command of their Lord, so the Lightning struck them as they looked on,
51:45  and they could not rise up, nor could they help themselves.
51:46  And (recall) before that, the people of Noah—indeed, they were a defiantly disobedient people.
51:47  And the universe—We constructed it with power, and We are surely expanding it.
51:48  And the earth—We spread it out. So how excellent are We who prepared it!
51:49  And We created all things in pairs, that you may remind yourselves.
51:50  “So flee to Allah; I am to youpl from Him an evident warner.
51:51  And do not set up any other god with Allah; I am to you from Him an evident warner.”
51:52  Likewise, no messenger came to those before them but they said, “A sorcerer or a madman.”
51:53  Did they recommend it to one another? In fact, they are a people who exceed all limits.
51:54  So turn away from them, for yousg are not to blame.
51:55  And remind, for the reminder benefits the believers.
51:56  And I did not create the unseen beings and humans but to worship Me.
51:57  I need no provision from them, nor do I need them to feed Me.
51:58  Allah is the All-Providing, the Possessor of power, the All-Firm.
51:59  So, indeed, those who do injustice will have their lot like the lot of their fellows, so let them not hasten Me.
51:60  So woe to those who have denied from that day of theirs which they are promised.
