By the dust scattering winds
then by the heavy laden clouds
then by their swift gliding
then by those who distribute the big affair (rain)
surely, that which you are being promised is true
and surely, the Day of Judgment shall come to pass
By the sky full of orbits
surely you contradict one another in what you say
only the perverse persons turn away from the truth
Woe to those who judge by conjecture
those who are engulfed in ignorance and heedlessness
They ask: "When will the Day of Judgment be?"
It will be the Day when they will be punished in the fire
and it will be said: "Taste your chastisement! This is what you were seeking to hasten."
As to the righteous, they will be in the midst of gardens and springs
joyfully receiving what their Lord shall give them; for they were before that (during their life on earth) righteous people
They used to sleep but little in the night time
pray for forgiveness in the early morning
and share their wealth with the needy who asked for it, and those who did not ask
In the earth, there are signs for the firm believers
and also in your own selves; can you not see
In heaven is your sustenance and all that you are promised
I swear by the Lord of heaven and earth that this is true, as certain as you are speaking now
Have you heard the story of Abraham’s honored guests
When they came to him and said: "Peace be upon you!" "Peace be upon you also!" he answered, and seeing that they were strangers
he went quietly to his family, brought a roasted cal
and placed it before them saying: "Will you not eat?"
When he saw them not eating, he became afraid of them. They said: "Have no fear," and they gave him good news of a son endowed with knowledge
Hearing this his wife came forward, with astonishment she smote her forehead and said: "A son to a barren old woman!"
They replied: "Thus has said your Lord: surely He is the Wise, the Knowledgeable."
Abraham asked: "O Divine Messengers, what is your errand?"
They replied: "We have been sent to a guilty nation (people of Lot, who were homosexuals)
to shower upon them brimstone
marked by your Lord for the transgressors."
Then We saved all those who were believers in the tow
- We found none but one household of true Muslim
- We left therein a sign for those who fear the painful punishment
There is also a sign for you in the story of Moses: when We sent him to Pharaoh with clear authority
but he turned his back along with his chiefs, saying: "He (Moses) is a sorcerer or a madman."
Consequently, We seized him and his warriors, and cast them into the sea. Indeed he deserved much blame
There is also a sign in the story of 'Ad: when We let loose on them a blighting win
which made rotten everything that it blew on
Likewise the story of Thamud, when it was said to them: "Enjoy yourselves for a while,"
but they disobeyed the commandment of their Lord; consequently they were overtaken by the thunderbolt even while they were looking on
So neither they could stand up on their feet nor could they defend themselves
And We destroyed the people of Noah before them because they too were transgressors
We have built the heavens with Our hands, for We have the power to do so
We have spread out the earth; how excellent a spreader We are
We have created everything in pairs, so that you may learn a lesson from it
O Prophet, say to mankind: "Rush towards Allah, surely I am assigned by Him as a plain Warner to you all
Do not set up another god besides Allah, surely I am assigned by Him as a plain Warner to you all."
It has been the case that whenever a Messenger came to the peoples before them, they said about him: "He is a sorcerer or a madman."
Have they transmitted this statement from one generation to the next? Nay, but they are all a rebellious people
So, O Prophet, ignore them; you are not at fault
But keep on admonishing them, for admonition is beneficial to the true believers
We have not created jinns and mankind except to worship Me
I require no sustenance from them, nor do I ask that they should feed Me
Surely it is Allah Who is the giver of all sustenance, the Lord of Power, the Invincible
Surely those who are wrongdoers, shall have their portion of torment similar to the portion of their predecessors; so let them not challenge Me to hurry it on
Woe then to the unbelievers, on that Day with which they are being threatened
