* | quran | * | 51. adh-dhariyat. the scatterers      <   > 

1.  *     By (the winds) that scatter dust.
2.  *     And (the clouds) that bear heavy weight of water;
3.  *     And (the ships) that float with ease and gentleness;
4.  *     And those (angels) who distribute (provisions, rain, and other blessings) by (Allahs) Command;
5.  *     Verily, that which you are promised (i.e. Resurrection in the Hereafter and receiving the reward or punishment of good or bad deeds, etc.) is surely true.
6.  *     And verily, the Recompense is sure to happen.
7.  *     By the heaven full of paths,
8.  *     Certainly, you have different ideas (about Muhammad SAW and the Quran).
9.  *     Turned aside therefrom (i.e. from Muhammad SAW and the Quran) is he who is turned aside (by the Decree and Preordainment   of Allah).
10.  *     Cursed be the liars,
11.  *     Who are under a cover of heedlessness (think not about the gravity of the Hereafter),
12.  *     They ask; "When will be the Day of Recompense?"
13.  *     (It will be) a Day when they will be tried (i.e. burnt) over the Fire!
14.  *     "Taste you your trial (burning)! This is what you used to ask to be hastened!"
15.  *     Verily, the Muttaqoon (pious - see V.2:2) will be in the midst of Gardens and Springs (in the Paradise),
16.  *     Taking joy in the things which their Lord has given them. Verily, they were before this Muhsinoon (good-doers - see V.2:112).
17.  *     They used to sleep but little by night (invoking their Lord (Allah) and praying, with fear and hope).
18.  *     And in the hours before dawn, they were (found) asking (Allah) for forgiveness,
19.  *     And in their properties there was the right of the beggar, and the Mahroom (the poor who does not ask the others) ,
20.  *     And on the earth are signs for those who have Faith with certainty,
21.  *     And also in your ownselves. Will you not then see?
22.  *     And in the heaven is your provision, and that which you are promised.
23.  *     Then, by the Lord of the heaven and the earth, it is the truth (i.e. what has been promised to you), just as it is the truth that you can speak.
24.  *     Has the story reached you, of the honoured guests (three angels; Jibrael (Gabriel) along with another two) of Ibraheem (Abraham)?
25.  *     When they came in to him, and said, "Salam, (peace be upon you)!" He answered; "Salam, (peace be upon you )," and said: "You are a people unknown to me,"
26.  *     Then he turned to his household, so brought out a roasted calf (as the property of Ibraheem (Abraham) was mainly cows).
27.  *     And placed it before them, (saying): "Will you not eat?"
28.  *     Then he conceived a fear of them (when they ate not). They said: "Fear not." And they gave him glad tidings of an intelligent son, having knowledge (about Allah and His religion of True Monotheism).
29.  *     Then his wife came forward with a loud voice, she smote her face, and said: "A barren old woman!"
30.  *     They said: "Even so says your Lord. Verily, He is the All-Wise, the All-Knower."
31.  *     (Ibrahim (Abraham)) said: "Then for what purpose you have come, O Messengers?"
32.  *     They said: "We have been sent to a people who are Mujrimoon (polytheists, sinners, criminals, disbelievers in Allah);
33.  *     To send down upon them stones of baked clay.
34.  *     Marked by your Lord for the Musrifoon (polytheists, criminals, sinners those who trespass Allahs set limits in evil-doings by committing great sins).
35.  *     So We brought out from therein the believers.
36.  *     But We found not there any household of the Muslims except one (i.e. Lout (Lot) and his two daughters).
37.  *     And We have left there a sign (i.e. the place of the Dead Sea , well-known in Palestine) for those who fear the painful torment.
38.  *     And in Moosa (Moses) (too, there is a sign). When We sent him to Firaun (Pharaoh) with a manifest authority.
39.  *     But (Firaun (Pharaoh)) turned away (from Belief in might) along with his hosts, and said: "A sorcerer, or a madman."
40.  *     So We took him and his hosts, and dumped them into the sea, while he was to be blamed.
41.  *     And in Ad (there is also a sign) when We sent against them the barren wind;
42.  *     It spared nothing that it reached, but blew it into broken spreads of rotten ruins.
43.  *     And in Thamood (there is also a sign), when they were told: "Enjoy yourselves for a while!"
44.  *     But they insolently defied the Command of their Lord, so the Saiqah overtook them while they were looking.
45.  *     Then they were unable to rise up, nor could they help themselves.
46.  *     (So were) the people of Nooh (Noah) before them. Verily, they were a people who were Fasiqoon (rebellious, disobedient to Allah).
47.  *     With power did We construct the heaven. Verily, We are Able to extend the vastness of space thereof.
48.  *     And We have spread out the earth, how Excellent Spreader (thereof) are We!
49.  *     And of everything We have created pairs, that you may remember (the Grace of Allah).
50.  *     So flee to Allah (from His Torment to His Mercy Islamic Monotheism), verily, I (Muhammad SAW) am a plain warner to you from Him.
51.  *     And set not up (or worship) any other ilahan (god) along with Allah (Glorified be He (Alone), Exalted above all that they associate as partners with Him). Verily, I (Muhammad SAW) am a plain warner to you from Him.
52.  *     Likewise, no Messenger came to those before them, but they said: "A sorcerer or a madman!"
53.  *     Have they (the people of the past) transmitted this saying to these (Quraish pagans)? Nay, they are themselves a people transgressing beyond bounds (in disbelief)!
54.  *     So turn away (O Muhammad SAW) from them (Quraish pagans) you are not to be blamed (as you have conveyed Allahs Message).
55.  *     And remind (by preaching the Quran, O Muhammad SAW) for verily, the reminding profits the believers.
56.  *     And I (Allah) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me (Alone).
57.  *     I seek not any provision from them (i.e. provision for themselves or for My creatures) nor do I ask that they should feed Me (i.e. feed themselves or My creatures).
58.  *     Verily, Allah is the All-Provider, Owner of Power, the Most Strong.
59.  *     And verily, for those who do wrong, there is a portion of torment like to the evil portion of torment (which came for) their likes (of old), so let them not ask Me to hasten on!
60.  *     Then, woe to those who disbelieve (in Allah and His Oneness Islamic Monotheism) from (that) their Day which they have been promised (for their punishment).
