51:1  (I swear) By the wind that scatters far and wide
51:2  And those that lift and bear heavy loads
51:3  And those that flow with ease and gentleness
51:4  And those that distribute and apportion by Our command
51:5  That of which you are warned is most surely true
51:6  And the judgment must most surely come about
51:7  Swear by the heaven (sky) full of paths (orbits)
51:8  Most surely you are in doctrines (opinions, teachings, ideologies) discordant (or inconsistent or contradictory)
51:9  He is turned away by them from truth, who would be (or wishes to be) turned away
51:10  Cursed be the conjecturers (or lie-mongers)
51:11  Who flounder heedless in an abyss (of ignorance and confusion)
51:12  They ask, "When will be the day of judgment?"
51:13  It is the day on which they shall be tried at the Fire
51:14  Taste you your torment! This is what you sought to hasten
51:15  Surely those who guard (against evil) shall be in Gardens and Springs
51:16  Taking joy in what their Lord gives them; surely they were before that, the doers of good
51:17  They used to sleep but little in the night
51:18  And in the morning they prayed for forgiveness
51:19  And in their wealth a portion was allotted for him who asked (the needy) and to him who was denied (the outcast, the deprived person or the one who could not ask)
51:20  And in the earth there are signs for those who have sure faith
51:21  And also in your own souls; will you not then see
51:22  And in the heaven is your sustenance and that which you are promised
51:23  And by the Lord of the heavens and the earth! It is most surely the truth, even as you speak
51:24  Has there come to you information about the honoured guests of Abraham
51:25  When they entered his presence they said, "Peace. Peace." Said he, "What a strange people."
51:26  Then he turned aside to his family secretly and brought a fat (roasted) calf
51:27  And placed it before them. He said, "What! Will you not eat?"
51:28  (When they did not eat) he conceived in his mind a fear of them. They said, "Fear not." And they gave him the good news of a son endowed with knowledge
51:29  Then his wife came up in great grief, and she struck her face and said, "An old barren woman!"
51:30  They said, "Thus says your Lord: Surely He is the Wise, the Knowing."
51:31  He said, "What is your errand then, O Messengers!"
51:32  They said, "Surely we are sent to a guilty people
51:33  "That we may send down upon them stone of clay (or brimstones)
51:34  "Sent forth from your Lord for the extravagant (those who transgress beyond bounds)."
51:35  Then We brought forth such believers as were therein
51:36  But We found not therein but one house of those who had Surrendered (Muslims)
51:37  And We left therein a sign for those who fear the grievous penalty
51:38  And in Moses (was another sign). When We sent him to Pharaoh with clear authority
51:39  But he turned away with his forces and said, "A sorcerer or a mad man."
51:40  So We seized him and his hosts and hurled them into the sea and his was the blame
51:41  And in A´ad (was another sign). When We sent upon them the destructive wind
51:42  It spared naught on which it blew, but made it like dust
51:43  And in Thamud (was another sign). When it was said to them, "Enjoy yourselves for a while."
51:44  But they revolted against the commandment of their Lord, so the rumbling (thunderbolt or stunning noise of an earthquake) overtook them while they looked
51:45  And they were not able to rise up, nor could they defend themselves
51:46  And the people of Noah (were also a sign) before that, surely they were a transgressing people
51:47  And the heaven, We raised it high with power, and it is We that expand the vastness of space (or We are the expanders of it)
51:48  And the earth, We have spread it out; how gracious was the Spreader thereof
51:49  And of all things have We created pairs, that you may reflect (or receive instruction)
51:50  Therefore flee unto Allah, surely I am a plain Warner to you from Him
51:51  And set not up with Allah another God: surely I am a plain Warner to you from Him
51:52  Thus there did not come to those before them a messenger but they said, "(He is) A sorcerer or a mad man."
51:53  Is this the legacy (or tradition) they have transmitted to each other? Nay! They are a people extravagant (transgressing beyond bounds)
51:54  Then turn your back upon them for you are not to blame
51:55  And continue to teach (or remind), for surely the reminder profits the believers
51:56  And I have not created the jinn and mankind except to worship (serve) Me
51:57  No sustenance do I require from them, nor do I require that they should feed Me
51:58  Surely it is Allah Who is the Bestower of sustenance, the Lord of Power, the ever Steadfast
51:59  And lo! Those who do wrong shall have a portion like the portion of those of earlier generations, therefore let them not ask Me to hasten
51:60  Woe to those who disbelieve because of their Day which they are promised
