51:1  By the scatterers dispersing.
51:2  And the burden-bearers.
51:3  And those gliding with ease.
51:4  And those distributing commands.
51:5  What you’ve been promised is true.
51:6  Judgment will take place.
51:7  By the woven sky.
51:8  You have conflicting views.
51:9  From it, the deviators deviate.
51:10  Perish the falsifiers.
51:11  Those entangled in confusion and delusion.
51:12  They ask, “When is Judgment Day?”
51:13  The Day they will be tried over the Fire.
51:14  “Taste your ordeal. This is what you sought to expedite.”
51:15  Yet, the righteous will be in gardens and springs.
51:16  Receiving what their Lord has given them, for they were good doers before that.
51:17  They hardly slept during the night.
51:18  And at dawn, they would ask for forgiveness.
51:19  And in their wealth was a known right for the asker and the deprived.
51:20  On earth are signs for the convinced.
51:21  And within yourselves—don’t you see?
51:22  In the heavens is your sustenance, as promised.
51:23  By the Lord of heavens and earth: this is as true as your speaking.
51:24  Did you hear the story of Abraham’s honored guests?
51:25  They entered upon him and said, “Peace.” He replied, “Peace,” to the strangers.
51:26  Then he went to his family and brought a fattened calf.
51:27  He placed it before them and said, “Will you not eat?”
51:28  Sensing their discomfort, they reassured him, “Fear not.” And they gave him the good news of a knowledgeable son.
51:29  His wife approached in astonishment, slapped her face, and said, “A barren old woman?”
51:30  They responded, “So said your Lord. Indeed, He is the Wise, the Knowing.”
51:31  He asked, “What’s your business, O messengers?”
51:32  They replied, “We’ve been sent to a guilty people.
51:33  To unleash upon them stones of clay.
51:34  Marked by your Lord for the transgressors.”
51:35  So, we evacuated those of the believers who were there.
51:36  In it, we found only one household of the submissive.
51:37  We left therein a sign for those who fear the dreadful punishment.
51:38  Also, in Moses, We sent him to Pharaoh with apparent authority.
51:39  But he turned away with his chiefs and said, “A magician or a madman!”
51:40  So, We seized him and his troops, and We threw them into the sea, and he was to blame.
51:41  Also, in Aad, when We sent against them the barren wind.
51:42  It left nothing it came upon but made it like disintegrated ruins.
51:43  And in Thamud, when it was said to them, “Enjoy yourselves for a while.”
51:44  They defied their Lord’s command, so the thunderbolt seized them while they looked on.
51:45  They were unable to rise, nor could they defend themselves.
51:46  And the people of Noah before them. They were a sinful people.
51:47  We constructed the universe with power, and We are expanding it.
51:48  And We spread the earth; how excellent are We as spreaders!
51:49  Of all things, we created two mates, so you may think.
51:50  “So flee towards God. I am to you from Him a clear warner.”
51:51  “And don’t set up any other deity with God. I am to you from Him a clear warner.”
51:52  Likewise, no messenger came to those before them, but they said, “A magician, or a madman.”
51:53  Did they pass it down among themselves? They are defiant people.
51:54  So, distance yourself from them; you are not to blame.
51:55  And remind, for the reminder benefits the believers.
51:56  I didn’t create the jinn and the humans except to worship Me.
51:57  I seek no provision from them, and neither do I want them to feed Me.
51:58  God is the Provider, the Possessor of Power, and the Firm.
51:59  To those who do wrong will have the same fate as their predecessors, so let them not hasten Me.
51:60  So woe to those who disbelieve, for their Day which they are promised.
