M. M. Pickthall rendition of Surah The Winnowing Winds, The Scatterers(adh-Dhariyat)
51:1 By those that winnow with a winnowin
51:2 And those that bear the burden (of the rain
51:3 And those that glide with ease (upon the sea
51:4 And those who distribute (blessings) by command
51:5 Lo! that wherewith ye are threatened is indeed true
51:6 And lo! the judgment will indeed befall
51:7 By the heaven full of paths
51:8 Lo! ye, forsooth, are of various opinion (concerning the truth)
51:9 He is made to turn away from it who is (himself) averse
51:10 Accursed be the conjecturer
51:11 Who are careless in an abyss
51:12 They ask: When is the Day of Judgment
51:13 (It is) the day when they will be tormented at the Fire
51:14 (And it will be said unto them): Taste your torment (which ye inflicted). This is what ye sought to hasten
51:15 Lo! those who keep from evil will dwell amid gardens and watersprings
51:16 Taking that which their Lord giveth them; for lo! aforetime they were doers of good
51:17 They used to sleep but little of the night
51:18 And ere the dawning of each day would seek forgiveness
51:19 And in their wealth the beggar and the outcast had due share
51:20 And in the earth are portents for those whose faith is sure
51:21 And (also) in yourselves. Can ye then not see
51:22 And in the heaven is your providence and that which ye are promised
51:23 And by the Lord of the heavens and the earth, it is the truth, even as (it is true) that ye speak
51:24 Hath the story of Abraham's honoured guests reached thee (O Muhammad)
51:25 When they came in unto him and said: Peace! he answered, Peace! (and thought): Folk unknown (to me)
51:26 Then he went apart unto his housefolk so that they brought a fatted calf
51:27 And he set it before them, saying: Will ye not eat
51:28 Then he conceived a fear of them. They said: Fear not! and gave him tidings of (the birth of) a wise son
51:29 Then his wife came forward, making moan, and smote her face, and cried: A barren old woman
51:30 They said: Even so saith thy Lord. Lo! He is the Wise, the Knower
51:31 (Abraham) said: And (afterward) what is your errand, O ye sent (from Allah)
51:32 They said: Lo! we are sent unto a guilty folk
51:33 That we may send upon them stones of clay
51:34 Marked by thy Lord for (the destruction of) the wanton
51:35 Then we brought forth such believers as were there
51:36 But We found there but one house of those surrendered (to Allah)
51:37 And We left behind therein a portent for those who fear a painful doom
51:38 And in Moses (too, there is a portent) when We sent him unto Pharaoh with clear warrant
51:39 But he withdrew (confiding) in his might, and said: A wizard or a madman
51:40 So We seized him and his hosts and flung them in the sea, for he was reprobate
51:41 And in (the tribe of) A'ad (there is a portent) when we sent the fatal wind against them
51:42 It spared naught that it reached, but made it (all) as dust
51:43 And in (the tribe of) Thamud (there is a portent) when it was told them: Take your ease awhile
51:44 But they rebelled against their Lord's decree, and so the thunderbolt overtook them even while they gazed
51:45 And they were unable to rise up, nor could they help themselves
51:46 And the folk of Noah aforetime. Lo! they were licentious folk
51:47 We have built the heaven with might, and We it is Who make the vast extent (thereof)
51:48 And the earth have We laid out, how gracious is the Spreader (thereof)
51:49 And all things We have created by pairs, that haply ye may reflect
51:50 Therefor flee unto Allah; lo! I am a plain warner unto you from him
51:51 And set not any other god along with Allah; lo! I am a plain warner unto you from Him
51:52 Even so there came no messenger unto those before them but they said: A wizard or a madman
51:53 Have they handed down (the saying) as an heirloom one unto another? Nay, but they are froward folk
51:54 So withdraw from them (O Muhammad), for thou art in no wise blameworthy
51:55 And warn, for warning profiteth believers
51:56 I created the jinn and humankind only that they might worship Me
51:57 I seek no livelihood from them, nor do I ask that they should feed Me
51:58 Lo! Allah! He it is that giveth livelihood, the Lord of unbreakable might
51:59 And lo! for those who (now) do wrong there is an evil day like unto the evil day (which came for) their likes (of old); so let them not ask Me to hasten on (that day)
51:60 And woe unto those who disbelieve, from (that) their day which they are promised
