51:1  By the Winnowing [Winds]
51:2  and those bearing a burden [of water]
51:3  and the ships floating gently
51:4  and those [angels] delivering a command [from Allah(God)],
51:5  whatever you are promised is certain!
51:6  Doom [Resurrection and Reckoning] is about to occur!
51:7  By the sky full of orbits,
51:8  you (all) have different ways of saying things,
51:9  to brush off anyone who may be brushed off.
51:10  Damned will be guessers
51:11  who are dazed with excitement.
51:12  They ask: "When will Doomsday be?"
51:13  [It is] A day [that] they will be tested over the Fire:
51:14  "Taste your test! This is what you wanted to hurry up.
51:15  The heedful will be in gardens and by springs
51:16  partaking of whatever their Lord has given them. They had acted kindly even before that;
51:17  they used to slumber only a portion of the night
51:18  while in vigils towards dawning they sought forgiveness.
51:19  The beggar and the destitute had some right to their wealth.
51:20  On earth there are signs for the convinced,
51:21  and even within yourselves; do you not notice them?
51:22  In the sky is your sustenance and whatever you are promised;
51:23  so by the Lord of Heaven and Earth, it is the Truth just the same as you have been uttering!
51:24  Has the report of Abraham's honored guests ever come to you,
51:25  when they entered his home and said: "Peace [be upon you]!"? He said: "[On you be] peace!" [even though] they were people he did not know.
51:26  So he slipped off to his family and fetched a fattened calf,
51:27  and brought it up to them. He said: "Will you not eat?"
51:28  He felt a fear concerning them. They said: "Don’t be afraid," and gave him the news of a clever lad.
51:29  His wife came up sighing, and struck her face and said: "[I'm] a barren old hag!"
51:30  They said: "Even so did your Lord say. He is the Wise, the Aware!
51:31  He said: "Yet what is your errand, O emissaries?"
51:32  They said: "We have been sent to a criminal folk,
51:33  to launch clay pellets on them
51:34  marked by your Lord for the dissipated."
51:35  So We brought out anyone there who were believers,
51:36  though We found only one house with Muslims in it.
51:37  We left a sign there for those who fear painful torment.
51:38  And with Moses when We sent him off with clear authority to Pharaoh,
51:39  who turned away with his warlords and said: "[He's either] a magician or a madman!"
51:40  We seized him and his troops and hurled them into the deep while he was to blame.
51:41  And with Ad, when We loosed a devastating wind on them:
51:42  it left nothing that it chanced upon without turning it into rubble.
51:43  And with Thamud when someone told them: "Enjoy things for a while!"
51:44  They strutted around against their Lord's command, as the Thunderbolt caught them while they were looking on.
51:45  They were unable to withstand it nor were they supported.
51:46  And Noah's people had already been such immoral folk.
51:47  The sky We have built firmly and We are extending it.
51:48  The earth have We spread out; how Blissful is the One Who has smoothed it off!
51:49  With everything We have created pairs so that you may be reminded;
51:50  so flee to Allah (God): "I am a plain warner to you from Him!
51:51  "Do not place any other deity alongside Allah (God) [Alone]: I am a plain warner to you from Him.
51:52  Thus no messenger ever came to those who preceded them unless they said: '[He's] a magician or a madman!'
51:53  Do they recommend it to one another? Yet they are such arrogant folk.
51:54  Turn away from them; you are not to blame!
51:55  Remind, Indeed, reminding benefits believers."
51:56  I have only created sprites and humankind so they may worship Me;
51:57  I do not want any sustenance from them nor do I need them to feed me.
51:58  Allah (God) is the Provider, wielding sturdy strength.
51:59  The ones who do wrong have offences just like their companions' offences, so do not let them ask Me to hurry things up.
51:60  It will be too bad for those who disbelieve on their day which has been promised them!
