By those (winds) that circulate dust!
Then those (clouds) that carry the burden,
Then those (ships) that glide smoothly (upon the sea),
Then those (‘Angels’ who) distribute (blessings) by Our Command,
Indeed, what you are promised is true,
And the ‘Day of Judgment’ is absolutely inevitable.
By the heavens with its beauty and (numerous) pathways,
Indeed, you have different views over (‘Muhammad’ & the ‘Qur’ān’).
He who is turned away from (the ‘Qur’ān’) is decreed to be turned away.
Curse be upon the liars!
Who are wasting life in doubts
They ask: "When will be the ‘Day of Judgment’?"
(It will be) the day when they will be punished by the Fire.
(It will be said unto them): “Taste your penalization! This is what you used to ask to be hastened.”
Indeed, the ‘Pious’ will dwell in (Great) Gardens and water springs,
Receiving what their Lord gives them. They were benefactors aforetime.
They used to sleep but a little of the night,
And to ask for forgiveness in the early morning,
While in their wealth, there was a due share for the beggar and for the needy.
On the earth are signs (of Allâh’s power & glory) for those who have a definite faith.
And also in your own selves. Do you not see?
In the heavens is your livelihood and that which you are promised.
Therefore, by the Lord of the heavens and earth, this is definitely the Truth, just as it is true that you speak.
Has the anecdote of the honorable guests of ‘Abraham’ reached you?
When they came to him, they said: "Peace". He said, "Peace to you, strangers!"
Then he went quietly to his household and brought a fat (roasted) calf.
He placed it before them. Then he said: "Will you not eat?"
He felt afraid of them. They said: “Do not be afraid," and then gave him the joyful news of a boy possessing knowledge.
Then his wife came forward, wailing, slapping her face and saying: “A barren old woman!”
They said: “This is what your Lord said. Indeed, He is the All-Wise, the All-Knowing."
He said: "What is your mission, O' messengers?"
They said: "We have been sent to a folk of ungodly sinners
To strike them with stones of baked clay,
Marked by your Lord for the prodigal ones.”
Thus, We brought out from therein the monotheistic believers.
But We did not find therein except for one house of those who submitted (themselves to the will of Allâh)
We left behind therein a portent for those who fear the painful punishment.
In ‘Moses’ (too, there is a lesson) when We sent him to ‘Pharaoh’ with evident authority.
But he turned away in arrogance, and said: “He is either a magician or a lunatic."
Thus, We seized him and his soldiers, and threw them into the sea, as he was the one to be blamed.
In (the tribe of) 'Aad’ (there is also a lesson) when We sent upon them the barren wind.
It spared nothing that reached it, but made it like a rotten bone.
In (the tribe of) ‘Thamūd’ (there is also a lesson) when they were told, "Enjoy yourselves for a while!"
They rebelled against the command of their Lord, so the thunderbolt overtook them while they were looking.
Thus, they were not able to rise up, or to help their own selves.
(There is also a lesson) in the folk of ‘Noah’ before them. They were a folk of debauchees walking in the path of disobedience.
The heavens, We have built with Our Hands. Indeed, We will continue to expand it.
The earth, We have spread it out. How brilliantly We do spread out!
Of everything, We have created pairs so that you may ruminate (on the sovereignty of Allâh).
(O’ ‘Muhammad’, say unto them): “Seek refuge in Allâh! Truly I am a perspicuous warner to you from Him.
Set not up any other god along with Allâh. Indeed, I am just a perspicuous warner to you from Him.”
Similarly, no ‘Messenger’ came to those before them, but they said: “He is either a magician or a lunatic."
Did they transmit this saying to each other? Nay, they are really cruel and oppressive people.
Thus, turn away from them and you will not be blamed (for that).
keep on reminding, Surely such a reminder will eventfully profit those who placed their faith in Allâh.
I have created not the jinn and the mankind except that they should worship (& venerate) Me.
I desire no livelihood from them, nor do I desire that they should feed Me.
Indeed, Allâh is the All-Provider, the Lord of all power, the Potent.
Indeed, the dreadful end of those who keep on sinning will be like the end of those who lived before them. Thus, let them not ask Me to hasten on.
Then, woe unto those who excessively indulge in disbelief (in Allâh) because of their day which they are threatened with.
