Talal A. Itani (new translation) rendition of Surah The Winnowing Winds, The Scatterers(adh-Dhariyat)
51:1 By the spreaders spreading
51:2 And those carrying loads
51:3 And those moving gently
51:4 And those distributing as commanded
51:5 What you are promised is true
51:6 Judgment will take place
51:7 By the sky that is woven
51:8 You differ in what you say
51:9 Averted from it is he who is averted
51:10 Perish the imposters
51:11 Those who are dazed in ignorance
51:12 They ask, 'When is the Day of Judgment?'
51:13 The Day they are presented to the Fire
51:14 'Taste your ordeal. This is what you used to challenge.'
51:15 But the pious are amidst gardens and springs
51:16 Receiving what their Lord has given them. They were virtuous before that
51:17 They used to sleep a little at night
51:18 And at dawn, they would pray for pardon
51:19 And in their wealth, there was a share for the beggar and the deprived
51:20 And on earth are signs for the convinced
51:21 And within yourselves. Do you not see
51:22 And in the heaven is your livelihood, and what you are promised
51:23 By the Lord of the heaven and the earth, it is as true as the fact that you speak
51:24 Has the story of Abraham's honorable guests reached you
51:25 When they entered upon him, they said, 'Peace.' He said, 'Peace, strangers.'
51:26 Then he slipped away to his family, and brought a fatted calf
51:27 He set it before them. He said, 'Will you not eat?'
51:28 And he harbored fear of them. They said, 'Do not fear,' and they announced to him the good news of a knowledgeable boy
51:29 His wife came forward crying. She clasped her face, and said, 'A barren old woman?'
51:30 They said, 'Thus spoke your Lord. He is the Wise, the Knowing.'
51:31 He said, 'What is your business, O envoys?'
51:32 They said, 'We are sent to a people guilty of sin.'
51:33 'To unleash upon them rocks of clay.'
51:34 'Marked by your Lord for the excessive.'
51:35 We evacuated all the believers who were in it
51:36 But found in it only one household of Muslims
51:37 And We left in it a sign for those who fear the painful punishment
51:38 And in Moses. We sent him to Pharaoh with a clear authority
51:39 But he turned away with his warlords, and said, 'A sorcerer or a madman.'
51:40 So We seized him and his troops, and threw them into the sea, and He was to blame
51:41 And in Aad. We unleashed against them the devastating wind
51:42 It spared nothing it came upon, but rendered it like decayed ruins
51:43 And in Thamood. They were told, 'Enjoy yourselves for a while.'
51:44 But they defied the command of their Lord, so the lightning struck them as they looked on
51:45 They could not rise up, nor could they find help
51:46 And before that, the people of Noah. They were immoral people
51:47 We constructed the universe with power, and We are expanding it
51:48 And the earth—We spread it out—How well We prepared it
51:49 We created all things in pairs, so that you may reflect and ponder
51:50 'So flee towards God. I am to you from Him a clear warner.'
51:51 'And do not set up any other god 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 sorcerer or a madman.'
51:53 Did they recommend it to one another? In fact, they are rebellious people
51:54 So turn away from them; you are not to blame
51:55 And remind, for the reminder benefits the believers
51:56 I did not create the jinn and the humans except to worship Me
51:57 I need no livelihood from them, nor do I need them to feed Me
51:58 God is the Provider, the One with Power, the Strong
51:59 Those who do wrong will have their turn, like the turn of their counterparts, so let them not rush Me
51:60 So woe to those who disbelieve because of that Day of theirs which they are promised
