100 The Chargers
Al-’Adiyat: Makki
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful.
I CALL TO witness the chargers, snorting, rushing to battle before the others,
2. Then those striking sparks of fire,
3. Then those charging in the morning
4. Raising clouds of dust,
5. Penetrating deep into the armies,
6. That man is ungrateful to his Lord
7. And is himself witness to it,
8. And is intractable in his love of worldly goods.
9. Does he not know when the contents of the graves are laid bare
10. And the secrets of the hearts exposed,
11. Surely their Lord will be aware of their (deeds).
