By (the winds) that scatter dust
and (the clouds) that bear heavy weight of water;
and (the ships) that float with ease and gentleness;
and those (angels) that distribute command (of Allah);
surely that which you are Promised is true;
and surely, the recompense is sure to happen.
By the sky full of orbits,
certainly, you have different ideas,
turn aside from (Muhammad and the Qur’an) is the one who is turned aside.
Curse be to the liars,
who are under a cover of heedlessness (don’t think about the Hereafter).
They ask: “When will be the Day of recompense?”
(It will be) a Day when they will be punished over the fire,
(it will be said): “You taste your trial (burning)! This is what you used to ask to be hastened!”
Surely, the pious will be in the midst of gardens and springs (in Paradise),
taking joy in the things which their Lord has given them. Surely, they were before this (in the world) righteous people.
They used to sleep but little by the night,
and ask (Allah) for forgiveness in the Hours before dawn,
and share their properties with the needy (who asked) for it, and the deprived (who did not ask).
And in the earth, there are signs for those who have firm faith,
and also in your own selves. Can you not then see?
And in the heaven is your provision, and all that which you are Promised.
Then by the Lord of the heaven and the earth, surely it is the truth just as what you speak!
Has the story of the honored guests (angel Gabriel with 2 more angels) of Abraham reached you?
When they came to him, and said: “Peace be upon you!” He answered: “Peace be upon you,” and said: “You are people unknown to me,”
then he turned to his family, brought out a fat roasted calf
and he put it before them (saying): “Will you not eat?”
(When they did not eat), he became afraid of them. They said: “Don’t fear.” They gave him glad tidings of an intelligent son.
Then his wife came forward with a loud voice, she strikes her face and said: “(A son to) a barren old woman!”
They said: “Even so says your Lord. Surely, He is the All-Wise, the All-Knower.”
He (Abraham) said: “For what purpose you have come, O Messengers?”
They said: “We have been sent to a criminal people (of prophet Lot, who were homosexuals)
to send down upon them stones of baked clay,
marked by your Lord for those who transgress Allah’s limits.”
So We brought out all those who were believers in the town,
but We found none in it except one household of the Muslims (Lot and his 2 daughters)
and We left in it a sign (the Dead Sea in Palestine) for those who fear the painful punishment.
And (There is sign in the story) of Moses, when We sent him to Pharaoh with a clear authority,
but he (Pharaoh) turned away (from belief) with his hosts and said: “A sorcerer, or a madman.”
So, We took him and his hosts, and dumped them into the sea. Indeed he deserved to be blamed.
(There is sign in the story) of Ad, when We sent against them the barren wind,
which spared nothing that it reached and it blew on like something rotten (decayed).
And (there is sign in the story) of Thamud, when it was said to them: “Enjoy yourselves for a while (3 days),”
but they disobeyed the command of their Lord with arrogance; so the awful cry overtook them while they were looking.
So neither they were able to rise up nor could they help themselves.
(Allah destroyed) the people of Noah before them. Surely, they were people who were rebellious, disobedient (to Allah).
Allah has built the heaven with power. Surely, We are Able to extend the vastness of space in it.
And We have spread out the earth, how Excellent Spreader are We!
We have created everything in pairs, so that you may remember (Allah).
(Say to mankind, O Muhammad):“Rush towards Allah, surely, I (Muhammad) am from Him a plain Warner to you.
And don’t set up any other one worthy of worship with Allah. Surely, I (Muhammad) am from Him a plain Warner to you.”
Likewise, whenever a Messenger came to those before them, they said: “A sorcerer or a madman!”
Have they (past people) transmitted this saying (to these pagans)? Nay, but they are a people transgressing beyond bounds!
So, turn away (O Muhammad) from them (pagans), you are not to be blamed (you have conveyed message).
And remind (by preaching the Qur’an, O Muhammad), for surely, the reminding benefits the believers.
I have not created the jinns and mankind except to worship Me (alone).
I don’t want any provision from them nor do I want that they feed Me.
Surely, Allah is the All-Provider, Owner of Power, the Strong.
And surely, for those who do wrong, there is a portion of punishment similar to the portion of the punishment of their friends (predecessors), so ask Me not to hasten on!
Then, woe to those who disbelieve from their Day which they have been promised (for punishment).
