بسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

وَالذَّارِيَاتِ ذَرْوًا {1}

[Yusufali 51:1] By the (Winds) that scatter broadcast;

فَالْحَامِلَاتِ وِقْرًا {2}

[Yusufali 51:2] And those that lift and bear away heavy weights;

فَالْجَارِيَاتِ يُسْرًا {3}

[Yusufali 51:3] And those that flow with ease and gentleness;

فَالْمُقَسِّمَاتِ أَمْرًا {4}

[Yusufali 51:4] And those that distribute and apportion by Command;-

إِنَّمَا تُوعَدُونَ لَصَادِقٌ {5}

[Yusufali 51:5] Verily that which ye are promised is true;

وَإِنَّ الدِّينَ لَوَاقِعٌ {6}

[Yusufali 51:6] And verily Judgment and Justice must indeed come to pass.

وَالسَّمَاءِ ذَاتِ الْحُبُكِ {7}

[Yusufali 51:7] By the Sky with (its) numerous Paths,

إِنَّكُمْ لَفِي قَوْلٍ مُخْتَلِفٍ {8}

[Yusufali 51:8] Truly ye are in a doctrine discordant,

يُؤْفَكُ عَنْهُ مَنْ أُفِكَ {9}

[Yusufali 51:9] Through which are deluded (away from the Truth) such as would be deluded.

قُتِلَ الْخَرَّاصُونَ {10}

[Yusufali 51:10] Woe to the falsehood-mongers,-

الَّذِينَ هُمْ فِي غَمْرَةٍ سَاهُونَ {11}

[Yusufali 51:11] Those who (flounder) heedless in a flood of confusion:

يَسْأَلُونَ أَيَّانَ يَوْمُ الدِّينِ {12}

[Yusufali 51:12] They ask, “When will be the Day of Judgment and Justice?”

يَوْمَ هُمْ عَلَى النَّارِ يُفْتَنُونَ {13}

[Yusufali 51:13] (It will be) a Day when they will be tried (and tested) over the Fire!

ذُوقُوا فِتْنَتَكُمْ هَٰذَا الَّذِي كُنْتُمْ بِهِ تَسْتَعْجِلُونَ {14}

[Yusufali 51:14] “Taste ye your trial! This is what ye used to ask to be hastened!”

إِنَّ الْمُتَّقِينَ فِي جَنَّاتٍ وَعُيُونٍ {15}

[Yusufali 51:15] As to the Righteous, they will be in the midst of Gardens and Springs,

آخِذِينَ مَا آتَاهُمْ رَبُّهُمْ ۚ إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا قَبْلَ ذَٰلِكَ مُحْسِنِينَ {16}

[Yusufali 51:16] Taking joy in the things which their Lord gives them, because, before then, they lived a good life.

كَانُوا قَلِيلًا مِنَ اللَّيْلِ مَا يَهْجَعُونَ {17}

[Yusufali 51:17] They were in the habit of sleeping but little by night,

وَبِالْأَسْحَارِ هُمْ يَسْتَغْفِرُونَ {18}

[Yusufali 51:18] And in the hour of early dawn, they (were found) praying for Forgiveness;

وَفِي أَمْوَالِهِمْ حَقٌّ لِلسَّائِلِ وَالْمَحْرُومِ {19}

[Yusufali 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).

وَفِي الْأَرْضِ آيَاتٌ لِلْمُوقِنِينَ {20}

[Yusufali 51:20] On the earth are signs for those of assured Faith,

وَفِي أَنْفُسِكُمْ ۚ أَفَلَا تُبْصِرُونَ {21}

[Yusufali 51:21] As also in your own selves: Will ye not then see?

وَفِي السَّمَاءِ رِزْقُكُمْ وَمَا تُوعَدُونَ {22}

[Yusufali 51:22] And in heaven is your Sustenance, as (also) that which ye are promised.

فَوَرَبِّ السَّمَاءِ وَالْأَرْضِ إِنَّهُ لَحَقٌّ مِثْلَ مَا أَنَّكُمْ تَنْطِقُونَ {23}

[Yusufali 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.

هَلْ أَتَاكَ حَدِيثُ ضَيْفِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ الْمُكْرَمِينَ {24}

[Yusufali 51:24] Has the story reached thee, of the honoured guests of Abraham?

إِذْ دَخَلُوا عَلَيْهِ فَقَالُوا سَلَامًا ۖ قَالَ سَلَامٌ قَوْمٌ مُنْكَرُونَ {25}

[Yusufali 51:25] Behold, they entered his presence, and said: “Peace!” He said, “Peace!” (and thought, “These seem) unusual people.”

فَرَاغَ إِلَىٰ أَهْلِهِ فَجَاءَ بِعِجْلٍ سَمِينٍ {26}

[Yusufali 51:26] Then he turned quickly to his household, brought out a fatted calf,

فَقَرَّبَهُ إِلَيْهِمْ قَالَ أَلَا تَأْكُلُونَ {27}

[Yusufali 51:27] And placed it before them.. he said, “Will ye not eat?”

فَأَوْجَسَ مِنْهُمْ خِيفَةً ۖ قَالُوا لَا تَخَفْ ۖ وَبَشَّرُوهُ بِغُلَامٍ عَلِيمٍ {28}

[Yusufali 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.

فَأَقْبَلَتِ امْرَأَتُهُ فِي صَرَّةٍ فَصَكَّتْ وَجْهَهَا وَقَالَتْ عَجُوزٌ عَقِيمٌ {29}

[Yusufali 51:29] But his wife came forward (laughing) aloud: she smote her forehead and said: “A barren old woman!”

قَالُوا كَذَٰلِكِ قَالَ رَبُّكِ ۖ إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْحَكِيمُ الْعَلِيمُ {30}

[Yusufali 51:30] They said, “Even so has thy Lord spoken: and He is full of Wisdom and Knowledge.”

قَالَ فَمَا خَطْبُكُمْ أَيُّهَا الْمُرْسَلُونَ {31}

[Yusufali 51:31] (Abraham) said: “And what, O ye Messengers, is your errand (now)?”

قَالُوا إِنَّا أُرْسِلْنَا إِلَىٰ قَوْمٍ مُجْرِمِينَ {32}

[Yusufali 51:32] They said, “We have been sent to a people (deep) in sin;-

لِنُرْسِلَ عَلَيْهِمْ حِجَارَةً مِنْ طِينٍ {33}

[Yusufali 51:33] “To bring on, on them, (a shower of) stones of clay (brimstone),

مُسَوَّمَةً عِنْدَ رَبِّكَ لِلْمُسْرِفِينَ {34}

[Yusufali 51:34] “Marked as from thy Lord for those who trespass beyond bounds.”

فَأَخْرَجْنَا مَنْ كَانَ فِيهَا مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ {35}

[Yusufali 51:35] Then We evacuated those of the Believers who were there,

فَمَا وَجَدْنَا فِيهَا غَيْرَ بَيْتٍ مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ {36}

[Yusufali 51:36] But We found not there any just (Muslim) persons except in one house:

وَتَرَكْنَا فِيهَا آيَةً لِلَّذِينَ يَخَافُونَ الْعَذَابَ الْأَلِيمَ {37}

[Yusufali 51:37] And We left there a Sign for such as fear the Grievous Penalty.

وَفِي مُوسَىٰ إِذْ أَرْسَلْنَاهُ إِلَىٰ فِرْعَوْنَ بِسُلْطَانٍ مُبِينٍ {38}

[Yusufali 51:38] And in Moses (was another Sign): Behold, We sent him to Pharaoh, with authority manifest.

فَتَوَلَّىٰ بِرُكْنِهِ وَقَالَ سَاحِرٌ أَوْ مَجْنُونٌ {39}

[Yusufali 51:39] But (Pharaoh) turned back with his Chiefs, and said, “A sorcerer, or one possessed!”

فَأَخَذْنَاهُ وَجُنُودَهُ فَنَبَذْنَاهُمْ فِي الْيَمِّ وَهُوَ مُلِيمٌ {40}

[Yusufali 51:40] So We took him and his forces, and threw them into the sea; and his was the blame.

وَفِي عَادٍ إِذْ أَرْسَلْنَا عَلَيْهِمُ الرِّيحَ الْعَقِيمَ {41}

[Yusufali 51:41] And in the ‘Ad (people) (was another Sign): Behold, We sent against them the devastating Wind:

مَا تَذَرُ مِنْ شَيْءٍ أَتَتْ عَلَيْهِ إِلَّا جَعَلَتْهُ كَالرَّمِيمِ {42}

[Yusufali 51:42] It left nothing whatever that it came up against, but reduced it to ruin and rottenness.

وَفِي ثَمُودَ إِذْ قِيلَ لَهُمْ تَمَتَّعُوا حَتَّىٰ حِينٍ {43}

[Yusufali 51:43] And in the Thamud (was another Sign): Behold, they were told, “Enjoy (your brief day) for a little while!”

فَعَتَوْا عَنْ أَمْرِ رَبِّهِمْ فَأَخَذَتْهُمُ الصَّاعِقَةُ وَهُمْ يَنْظُرُونَ {44}

[Yusufali 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.

فَمَا اسْتَطَاعُوا مِنْ قِيَامٍ وَمَا كَانُوا مُنْتَصِرِينَ {45}

[Yusufali 51:45] Then they could not even stand (on their feet), nor could they help themselves.

وَقَوْمَ نُوحٍ مِنْ قَبْلُ ۖ إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا قَوْمًا فَاسِقِينَ {46}

[Yusufali 51:46] So were the People of Noah before them for they wickedly transgressed.

وَالسَّمَاءَ بَنَيْنَاهَا بِأَيْدٍ وَإِنَّا لَمُوسِعُونَ {47}

[Yusufali 51:47] With power and skill did We construct the Firmament: for it is We Who create the vastness of pace.

وَالْأَرْضَ فَرَشْنَاهَا فَنِعْمَ الْمَاهِدُونَ {48}

[Yusufali 51:48] And We have spread out the (spacious) earth: How excellently We do spread out!

وَمِنْ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ خَلَقْنَا زَوْجَيْنِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُونَ {49}

[Yusufali 51:49] And of every thing We have created pairs: That ye may receive instruction.

فَفِرُّوا إِلَى اللَّهِ ۖ إِنِّي لَكُمْ مِنْهُ نَذِيرٌ مُبِينٌ {50}

[Yusufali 51:50] Hasten ye then (at once) to Allah: I am from Him a Warner to you, clear and open!

وَلَا تَجْعَلُوا مَعَ اللَّهِ إِلَٰهًا آخَرَ ۖ إِنِّي لَكُمْ مِنْهُ نَذِيرٌ مُبِينٌ {51}

[Yusufali 51:51] And make not another an object of worship with Allah: I am from Him a Warner to you, clear and open!

كَذَٰلِكَ مَا أَتَى الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ مِنْ رَسُولٍ إِلَّا قَالُوا سَاحِرٌ أَوْ مَجْنُونٌ {52}

[Yusufali 51:52] Similarly, no messenger came to the Peoples before them, but they said (of him) in like manner, “A sorcerer, or one possessed”!

أَتَوَاصَوْا بِهِ ۚ بَلْ هُمْ قَوْمٌ طَاغُونَ {53}

[Yusufali 51:53] Is this the legacy they have transmitted, one to another? Nay, they are themselves a people transgressing beyond bounds!

فَتَوَلَّ عَنْهُمْ فَمَا أَنْتَ بِمَلُومٍ {54}

[Yusufali 51:54] So turn away from them: not thine is the blame.

وَذَكِّرْ فَإِنَّ الذِّكْرَىٰ تَنْفَعُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ {55}

[Yusufali 51:55] But teach (thy Message) for teaching benefits the Believers.

وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنْسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ {56}

[Yusufali 51:56] I have only created Jinns and men, that they may serve Me.

مَا أُرِيدُ مِنْهُمْ مِنْ رِزْقٍ وَمَا أُرِيدُ أَنْ يُطْعِمُونِ {57}

[Yusufali 51:57] No Sustenance do I require of them, nor do I require that they should feed Me.

إِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الرَّزَّاقُ ذُو الْقُوَّةِ الْمَتِينُ {58}

[Yusufali 51:58] For Allah is He Who gives (all) Sustenance,- Lord of Power,- Steadfast (for ever).

فَإِنَّ لِلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا ذَنُوبًا مِثْلَ ذَنُوبِ أَصْحَابِهِمْ فَلَا يَسْتَعْجِلُونِ {59}

[Yusufali 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)!

فَوَيْلٌ لِلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْ يَوْمِهِمُ الَّذِي يُوعَدُونَ {60}

[Yusufali 51:60] Woe, then, to the Unbelievers, on account of that Day of theirs which they have been promised!
