Sura 51:  Drivers of the Winds (Al-Dhareyat)

Number of verses in sura: 60
Order of revelation: 67

[51:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[51:1]  The blowing winds.

[51:2]  Bearing rain.

[51:3]  Bringing provisions.

[51:4]  Distributing them as commanded.

[51:5]  What is promised to you will surely come to pass.

[51:6]  The Day of Judgment is inevitable.

[51:7]  Despite the perfectly created sky.

[51:8]  You continue to dispute the truth.

[51:9]  Deviating therefrom are the deviators.

[51:10]  Woe to the falsifiers.

[51:11]  In their blundering, they are totally heedless.

[51:12]  They question the Day of Judgment.

[51:13]  The day they are presented to the fire.

[51:14]  Taste the retribution; this is what you used to challenge.

[51:15]  The righteous have deserved gardens and springs.

[51:16]  They receive their Lord's rewards, for they used to be pious.

[51:17]  Rarely did they sleep the whole night.

[51:18]  At dawn, they prayed for forgiveness.

[51:19]  A portion of their money was set aside for the beggar and the needy.

[51:20]  The earth is full of signs for those who are certain.

[51:21]  And within yourselves; can you see?

[51:22]  In the heaven is your provision, and everything that is promised to you.

[51:23]  By the Lord of the heaven and the earth, this is as true as the fact that you speak.

[51:24]  Have you noted the history of Abraham's honorable guests?

[51:25]  They visited him, saying, "Peace." He said, "Peace to you, strangers!"

[51:26]  He asked his family to prepare a fat calf.

[51:27]  When he offered it to them, he remarked, "Do you not eat?"

[51:28]  He harbored fear of them. They said, "Have no fear," and they gave good news of a knowledgeable son.

[51:29]  His wife was astonished. Noting her wrinkled face: "I am a sterile old woman."

[51:30]  They said, "Thus said your Lord. He is the Most Wise, the Omniscient."

[51:31]  He said, "What are you up to, O messengers?"

[51:32]  They said, "We have been dispatched to criminal people.

[51:33]  "We will shower them with rocks of clay.

[51:34]  "Marked by your Lord for the transgressors."

[51:35]  We then delivered all the believers.

[51:36]  We did not find in it except one house of submitters.

[51:37]  We set it up as a lesson for those who fear the painful retribution.

[51:38]  In Moses (there is a lesson). We sent him to Pharaoh with manifest proofs.

[51:39]  But he turned away, in arrogance, and said, "Magician, or crazy."

[51:40]  Consequently, we punished him and his troops. We threw them into the sea, and he is the one to blame.

[51:41]  In `Aad (there is a lesson). We sent upon them disastrous wind.

[51:42]  Anything that it came upon was utterly destroyed.

[51:43]  In Thamoud (there is a lesson). They were told, "Enjoy temporarily."

[51:44]  They rebelled against the command of their Lord. Consequently, the lightning struck them as they looked.

[51:45]  They could never get up, nor were they helped.

[51:46]  And the people of Noah before that; they were wicked people.

"Expansion of the Universe Theory" Confirmed

[51:47]  We constructed the sky with our hands, and we will continue to expand it.

[51:48]  And we made the earth habitable; a perfect design.

[51:49]  We created a pair (male and female) of everything, that you may take heed.

[51:50]  You shall escape to GOD. I am sent by Him to you as a manifest warner.

[51:51]  Do not set up beside GOD any other god. I am sent by Him to you as a manifest warner.

[51:52]  Consistently, when a messenger went to the previous generations, they said, "Magician," or, "Crazy."

[51:53]  Did they make an agreement with each other? Indeed, they are transgressors.

[51:54]  You may disregard them; you cannot be blamed.

[51:55]  And remind, for the reminder benefits the believers.

The Purpose of Our Existence

[51:56]  I did not create the jinns and the humans except to worship Me alone.

[51:57]  I need no provisions from them, nor do I need them to feed Me.

[51:58]  GOD is the Provider, the Possessor of all power, the Supreme.

[51:59]  The transgressors have incurred the same fate as their previous counterparts; they should not challenge.

[51:60]  Woe to those who disbelieved from the day that is awaiting them.
