SURAH ADH-DHARIYAT (THOSE WHICH SCATTER DUST)

Division: 281

1-6Those which scatter dust, then haul the weight, then flow easily and then distribute a command279 is the evidence that with what you have been threatened is definitely true. Surely, recompense of what have been done will be fulfilled.

7-9The scholars who follow good paths280 is the evidence that you are definitely in a differing judgment. Those who are averted from differing judgment, are averted.

10-12Destroyed are those liars who are in delusion and unconsciousness, who say: “When is the Day of Religion?”!

13,14On that day, they will be brought to their senses in the fire/Jahannah [Hell]: “Taste your own melting in the fire! This is what you have been hastening for!”.

15-21Surely, those who have entered under the guardianship of Allah will be in the gardens and the springs as the ones who received what their Rabb has given them. Surely, they were those who produced good before. They used to sleep a little in the night. They asked forgiveness during daybreak and there was a right in their wealth for those who asked and did not ask, and without a doubt, there are many evidences/signs on the earth and within yourselves for those who will certainly believe. Do you still not see?

22Your provision/the One Who provides for you and that which you are promised is in the heavens/universe.

23Then, by Rabb of the heavens/universe and the earth, that which you are promised is truth just as you speak.

24Has the news of the honored guests of Abraham come to you?

25When they entered upon Abraham and said: “Salam [health, peace, happiness…] be upon you!”. And Abraham said: “Salam [health, peace, happiness…] be upon you, the group of strange and unknown people!”.

26Then Abraham went to his family and came back with gold281. 27Then, he placed the gold close to them and said: “Would you not have?”.

28Then he felt from them apprehension. They said: “Do not fear!” and gave him the good tidings of a knowledgeable son.

29Then his wife came forward with a cry and hit her face and said: “An unfortunate one, a barren one!”.

30Guests said: “Thus decreed your Rabb. Indeed, your Rabb is the One Who makes laws, rules and principles that are set forth to prevent injustice and chaos. He is the One Who knows best”.

31Then Abraham said: “What is your important business, O messengers?”.

32-34Messengers said: “Indeed, we have been sent to a people of sinners to send down upon them hard stones made of baked clay and marked for the transgressors from your Rabb”.

35So We brought out whoever was in there of the believers. 36But We did not find there other than a single house of Muslims. 37And We left therein an evidence/a sign for those who fear a painful punishment.

38,39And there are evidences/signs in Moses. Once We sent him to Pharaoh with an explicit proof but Pharaoh turned away with his army and all his sources of power. And he said: “This is a magician, a person who is supported by secret forces/is a madman”.

40Then We seized him and his armies and cast them in the large amount of water/river. And he was blameworthy.

41,42And there are evidences/signs in Ad. Once We sent upon them a wind which left nothing of what it came upon but that it made it like ash.

43,44And there are evidences/signs in Thamud. Once it was said to them: “Enjoy until a specified time!”. Then they went astray from the command of their Rabb and a thunderbolt seized them while they were looking on.

45Then they did not have any strength to stand. And they were not the ones who were helped.

46And before that, We had manipulated/destroyed the people of Noah. Surely they were a people who had gone astray from the righteous path.

47And the heavens/universe; We constructed it with strength/tightly. Indeed, We are the Ones Who expand.

48And the earth; it is We Who have spread it out. How excellent We spread!

49And We formed two mates from all things so you may give thought/remember.

50So, flee to Allah, flee to Allah!!! Indeed, I am an explicit warner from Him for you.

51And do not make another deity together with Allah. Indeed, I am an explicit warner from Him for you. 282

52Similarly, when a messenger came to those before them, they definitely said about him: “This is a magician!” or “the one who is supported by secret forces/is a madman!”.

53Did they transfer it to each other as a liability? Rather, they are a transgressing people.

54,55So, turn away from them. You are not to be blamed. And remind them. Because, reminding benefits the believers.

56,57I formed everyone, that came and passed, whether you know or not, only to worship Me. I do not want any provision from them. And I do not want them to feed Me.

58Surely, Allah is the One Who provides much, the One Who is the possessor of firm strength .

59And indeed for those who do wrong; act against their own good by associating others with Allah is a share like the share of their companions. So let them not haste.

60O woe to the infidels; those who consciously deny the divinity of Allah and the fact that He is Rabb for their days which they are promised!
