I CALL TO witness those who scatter (dust) by dispersing
And those who bear the load (of rain)
And those who move (on the water) gently
And those who distribute (it) by command
Verily the promise made to you is true
The Judgement will indeed take place
The heavens webbed-with-tracks is witnes
You are surely caught in contradictions.
From which only he turns who is turned away
Perish will those who just guess and speculate
Who are lost in deception
They ask: "When is the Day of Judgement?" -
The day they will be burnt in the Fire
(And told:) "Taste your punishment. This is what you were trying to hasten."
Surely those who fear God and follow the straight path will be amidst gardens and fresh springs of water
Receiving what is given them by their Lord. They were surely the virtuous before this
They slept little in the night
And every morning asked forgiveness
In whose wealth the suppliant and the deprived had a share
There are signs in the earth for those who are firm in their faith
And within yourselves. Can you not perceive
There is in the heavens your sustenance, and whatever has been promised you
By the Lord of the heavens and the earth, this is certainly true even as you speak
Has the story of Abraham's honoured guests come to you
When they came to him, they said: "Peace." He answered: "Peace." They were a people he did not recognise
So he hurried to the house and brought a fatted calf
And placing it before them said: "Won't you eat?"
He felt afraid of them; but they said: "Have no fear," and gave him the good news of a wise son
His wife came out lamenting, striking her forehead, and said: "I, am old and barren woman?"
They said: "Thus said your Lord. He is indeed all-wise and all-knowing."
He said: "What is then your business, O messengers?"
They said: "We have been sent to a wicked peopl
So as to let loose clods of clay on the
Marked by your Lord for those who waste their substance."
So We evacuated everyone who was a believer there
But did not find more than a single family of believers
We left a sign in this for those who fear the grievous punishment
As (there was) in Moses when We sent him to the Pharaoh with clear authority
But he turned to his counsellors, and said: "He is a magician or lunatic."
So We seized him and his armies, and threw them into the sea, for he was worthy of blame
In 'Ad (also is a sign), when We sent a blasting wind against them
Which turned everything it touched to ashes
And in Thamud, when We said to them: "Enjoy yourselves for a while;"
But they disobeyed the command of their Lord; so they were destroyed by a thunderbolt, and they could only gape
And neither stand up nor defend themselves
(So had We destroyed) the people of Noah before them: They were surely a sinful people
We built the heavens by Our authority; and We are the Lord of power and expanse
We spread the earth a carpet; what comfort We provide
And We created pairs of everything that you may contemplate
So turn to God. I give you a clear warning from Him
Do not set up another god with God. I give you a clear warning from Him
Even thus no apostle came to those before them but they said: "He is a sorcerer or a mad man."
Is this the legacy they have passed down from one to the other? In fact, they are a rebellious people
Turn away from them. You will not be blamed
But go on reminding them, as reminding benefits the believers
I have not created the jinns and men but to worship Me
I want no sustenance from them nor do I want them to feed Me
God is certainly the great provider, Lord of strength and power
Those who do wrong will indeed come to the same end as their fellows (of old). So let them not ask Me to hasten (the punishment)
Alas the woe for those who refuse to believe in the Day which has been promised them
