[51.1] By the (Winds) that scatter broadcast;
[51.2] And those that lift and bear away heavy weights;
[51.3] And those that flow with ease and gentleness;
[51.4] And those that distribute and apportion by Command;-
[51.5] Verily that which ye are promised is true;
[51.6] And verily Judgment and Justice must indeed come to pass.
[51.7] By the Sky with (its) numerous Paths,
[51.8] Truly ye are in a doctrine discordant,
[51.9] Through which are deluded (away from the Truth) such as would be deluded.
[51.10] Woe to the falsehood-mongers,-
[51.11] Those who (flounder) heedless in a flood of confusion:
[51.12] They ask, "When will be the Day of Judgment and Justice?"
[51.13] (It will be) a Day when they will be tried (and tested) over the Fire!
[51.14] "Taste ye your trial! This is what ye used to ask to be hastened!"
[51.15] As to the Righteous, they will be in the midst of Gardens and Springs,
[51.16] Taking joy in the things which their Lord gives them, because, before then, they lived a good life.
[51.17] They were in the habit of sleeping but little by night,
[51.18] And in the hour of early dawn, they (were found) praying for Forgiveness;
[51.19] And in their wealth and possessions (was remembered) the right of the (needy,) him who asked, and him who (for some reason) was prevented (from asking).
[51.20] On the earth are signs for those of assured Faith,
[51.21] As also in your own selves: Will ye not then see?
[51.22] And in heaven is your Sustenance, as (also) that which ye are promised.
[51.23] Then, by the Lord of heaven and earth, this is the very Truth, as much as the fact that ye can speak intelligently to each other.
[51.24] Has the story reached thee, of the honoured guests of Abraham?
[51.25] Behold, they entered his presence, and said: "Peace!" He said, "Peace!" (and thought, "These seem) unusual people."
[51.26] Then he turned quickly to his household, brought out a fatted calf,
[51.27] And placed it before them.. he said, "Will ye not eat?"
[51.28] (When they did not eat), He conceived a fear of them. They said, "Fear not," and they gave him glad tidings of a son endowed with knowledge.
[51.29] But his wife came forward (laughing) aloud: she smote her forehead and said: "A barren old woman!"
[51.30] They said, "Even so has thy Lord spoken: and He is full of Wisdom and Knowledge."
[51.31] (Abraham) said: "And what, O ye Messengers, is your errand (now)?"
[51.32] They said, "We have been sent to a people (deep) in sin;-
[51.33] "To bring on, on them, (a shower of) stones of clay (brimstone),
[51.34] "Marked as from thy Lord for those who trespass beyond bounds."
[51.35] Then We evacuated those of the Believers who were there,
[51.36] But We found not there any just (Muslim) persons except in one house:
[51.37] And We left there a Sign for such as fear the Grievous Penalty.
[51.38] And in Moses (was another Sign): Behold, We sent him to Pharaoh, with authority manifest.
[51.39] But (Pharaoh) turned back with his Chiefs, and said, "A sorcerer, or one possessed!"
[51.40] So We took him and his forces, and threw them into the sea; and his was the blame.
[51.41] And in the 'Ad (people) (was another Sign): Behold, We sent against them the devastating Wind:
[51.42] It left nothing whatever that it came up against, but reduced it to ruin and rottenness.
[51.43] And in the Thamud (was another Sign): Behold, they were told, "Enjoy (your brief day) for a little while!"
[51.44] But they insolently defied the Command of their Lord: So the stunning noise (of an earthquake) seized them, even while they were looking on.
[51.45] Then they could not even stand (on their feet), nor could they help themselves.
[51.46] So were the People of Noah before them for they wickedly transgressed.
[51.47] With power and skill did We construct the Firmament: for it is We Who create the vastness of pace.
[51.48] And We have spread out the (spacious) earth: How excellently We do spread out!
[51.49] And of every thing We have created pairs: That ye may receive instruction.
[51.50] Hasten ye then (at once) to Allah: I am from Him a Warner to you, clear and open!
[51.51] And make not another an object of worship with Allah: I am from Him a Warner to you, clear and open!
[51.52] Similarly, no messenger came to the Peoples before them, but they said (of him) in like manner, "A sorcerer, or one possessed"!
[51.53] Is this the legacy they have transmitted, one to another? Nay, they are themselves a people transgressing beyond bounds!
[51.54] So turn away from them: not thine is the blame.
[51.55] But teach (thy Message) for teaching benefits the Believers.
[51.56] I have only created Jinns and men, that they may serve Me.
[51.57] No Sustenance do I require of them, nor do I require that they should feed Me.
[51.58] For Allah is He Who gives (all) Sustenance,- Lord of Power,- Steadfast (for ever).
[51.59] For the Wrong-doers, their portion is like unto the portion of their fellows (of earlier generations): then let them not ask Me to hasten (that portion)!
[51.60] Woe, then, to the Unbelievers, on account of that Day of theirs which they have been promised!
