Qur'an

  Revealed 67th  

51:1
By those [winds] scattering [dust] dispersing

51:2
And those [clouds] carrying a load [of water]

51:3
And those [ships] sailing with ease

51:4
And those [angels] apportioning [each] matter,

51:5
Indeed, what you are promised is true.

51:6
And indeed, the Recompense is to occur.

51:7
By the heaven containing pathways,

51:8
Indeed, you are in differing speech.

51:9
Deluded away from [the Qur'an] is he who is deluded.

51:10
Destroyed are the falsifiers

51:11
Who are within a flood [of confusion] and heedless.

51:12
They ask, "When is the Day of Recompense?"

51:13
[It is] the Day they will be tormented over the Fire

51:14
[And will be told], "Taste your torment.  This is that for which you were impatient."

51:15
Indeed, the righteous will be among gardens and springs,

51:16
Accepting what their Lord has given them.  Indeed, they were before that doers of good.

51:17
They used to sleep but little of the night,

51:18
And in the hours before dawn they would ask forgiveness,

51:19
And from their properties was [given] the right of the [needy] petitioner and the deprived.

51:20
And on the earth are signs for the certain [in faith]

51:21
And in yourselves.  Then will you not see?

51:22
And in the heaven is your provision and whatever you are promised.

51:23
Then by the Lord of the heaven and earth, indeed, it is truth - just as [sure as] it is that you are speaking.

51:24
Has there reached you the story of the honored guests of Abraham?  -

51:25
When they entered upon him and said, "[We greet you with] peace." He answered, "[And upon you] peace, [you are] a people unknown.

51:26
Then he went to his family and came with a fat [roasted] calf  [*Genesis 18:7]

51:27
And placed it near them; he said, "Will you not eat?"

51:28
And he felt from them apprehension.  They said, "Fear not," and gave him good tidings of a learned boy.

51:29
And his wife approached with a cry [of alarm] and struck her face and said, "[I am] a barren old woman!"  [*Genesis 18:12]

51:30
They said, "Thus has your Lord said; indeed, He is the Wise, the Knowing."

51:31
[Abraham] said, "Then what is your business [here], O messengers?"

51:32
They said, "Indeed, we have been sent to a people of criminals

51:33
To send down upon them stones of clay,

51:34
Marked in the presence of your Lord for the transgressors."

51:35
So We brought out whoever was in the cities of the believers.

51:36
And We found not within them other than a [single] house of Muslims.

51:37
And We left therein a sign for those who fear the painful punishment.

51:38
And in Moses [was a sign], when We sent him to Pharaoh with clear authority.

51:39
But he turned away with his supporters and said, "A magician or a madman."

51:40
So We took him and his soldiers and cast them into the sea, and he was blameworthy.

51:41
And in 'Aad [was a sign], when We sent against them the barren wind.

51:42
It left nothing of what it came upon but that it made it like disintegrated ruins.

51:43
And in Thamud, when it was said to them, "Enjoy yourselves for a time."

51:44
But they were insolent toward the command of their Lord, so the thunderbolt seized them while they were looking on.

51:45
And they were unable to arise, nor could they defend themselves.

51:46
And [We destroyed] the people of Noah before; indeed, they were a people defiantly disobedient.

51:47
And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] expander.

51:48
And the earth We have spread out [as a carpet], and excellent is the spreader.

51:49
And of all things We created two pairs; perhaps you will remember.

51:50
So flee to God.  Indeed, I am to you from Him a clear warner.

51:51
And do not make [as equal] with God another deity.  Indeed, I am to you from Him a clear warner.

51:52
Similarly, there came not to those before them any messenger except that they said, "A magician or a madman."

51:53
Did they suggest it to them?  Rather, they [themselves] are a transgressing people.

51:54
So leave them, for you are not to be blamed.

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

51:56
And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.

51:57
I do not want from them any provision, nor do I want them to feed Me.

51:58
Indeed, it is God who is the [continual] Provider, the firm possessor of strength.

51:59
And indeed, for those who have wronged is a portion [of punishment] like the portion of their predecessors, so let them not impatiently urge Me.

51:60
And woe to those who have disbelieved from their Day which they are promised.
