Sura Adh-Dhariyat (The Winds that Scatter)
Sheikh / Mishary AlAfasy

  • In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

    51:1-6 By those that winnow with a winnowing, and those that bear the burden (of the rain), and those that glide with ease (upon the sea), and those who distribute (blessings) by command, lo! That wherewith you are threatened is indeed true, and lo! The judgment will indeed befall.

    51:7-14 By the heaven full of paths, lo! You, forsooth, are of various opinions (concerning the truth). He is made to turn away from it who is (himself) averse. Accursed be the conjecturers, who are careless in an abyss! They ask: When is the Day of Judgment? (It is) the Day when they will be tormented at the Fire, (and it will be said to them): Taste your torment (which you inflicted). This is what you sought to hasten.

    51:15-19 Lo! Those who are pious will dwell amid gardens and water springs. Taking that which their Lord gives them, for lo! Before they were doers of good; they used to sleep but little of the night, and ere the dawning of each day would seek forgiveness, and in their wealth the beggar and the outcast had due share.

    51:20-21 And in the earth are signs for those whose faith is sure, and (also) in yourselves. Can you then not see?

    51:22-23 And in the heaven is your providence and that which you are promised; and by the Lord of the heavens and the earth, it is the truth, even as (it is true) that you speak.

    51:24-30 Has the story of Abraham's honored guests reached you (O Muhammad)? When they came in to him and said: Peace! He answered: Peace! (And thought:) Folk unknown (to me). Then he went apart to his house folk so that they brought a fatted calf; and he set it before them, saying: Will you not eat? Then he conceived a fear of them. They said: Fear not! And gave him tidings of (the birth of) a wise son. Then his wife came forward, making moan, and smote her face, and cried: A barren old woman! They said: Even so says your Lord. Lo! He is the Wise, the Knower.

    51:31-37 (Abraham) said: And (afterward) what is your errand, O you sent (from God)? They said: Lo! We are sent to a guilty folk, that we may send upon them stones of clay, marked by your Lord for (the destruction of) the wanton. Then We brought out such believers as were there (in the cities). But We found therein but one house of Muslims (those surrendered to God). And We left behind therein a sign for those who fear a painful punishment.

    51:38-40 And in Moses (too, there is a sign) when We sent him to Pharaoh with clear warrant, but he withdrew (confiding) in his might, and said: A wizard or a madman. So We seized him and his hosts and flung them in the sea, for he was a reprobate.

    51:41-42 And in (the tribe of) Aad (there is a sign) when We sent the fatal wind against them. It spared nothing that it reached, but made it (all) as dust.

    51:43-45 And in (the tribe of) Thamud (there is a sign) when it was told to them: Take your ease awhile. But they rebelled against their Lord's decree, and so the thunderbolt overtook them even while they gazed; and they were neither able to rise up, nor could they help themselves.

    51:46 And the folk of Noah before. Lo! They were licentious folk.

    51:47-48 We have built the heaven with might, and We it is Who make the vast extent (thereof). And the earth have We laid out, how Gracious was the Spreader (thereof)!

    51:49 And all things We have created by pairs, that perhaps you may reflect.

    51:50-51 Therefore flee to God, lo! I am a plain warner to you from Him, and set not any other god along with God, lo! I am a plain warner to you from Him.

    51:52-55 Even so there came no Messenger to those before them but they said: A wizard or a madman! Have they handed down (the saying) as an heirloom one to another? Nay, but they are froward folk. So withdraw from them (O Muhammad), for you are in no way blameworthy, and warn, for warning profits believers.

    51:56-58 I created the jinn and humankind only that they might worship Me. I seek no livelihood from them, nor do I ask that they should feed Me. Lo! God! It is He that gives livelihood, the Lord of unbreakable might.

    51:59-60 And lo! For those who (now) do wrong there is an evil day like to the evil day (which came for) their likes (of old); so let them not ask Me to hasten on (that day). And woe to those who disbelieve, from (that) their Day, which they are promised.
