;

1 . By the (Winds) sent forth one after another (to man´s profit);

2 . Which then blow violently in tempestuous Gusts,

3 . And scatter (things) far and wide;

4 . Then separate them, one from another,

5 . Then spread abroad a Message,

6 . Whether of Justification or of Warning;-

7 . Assuredly, what ye are promised must come to pass.

8 . Then when the stars become dim;

9 . When the heaven is cleft asunder;

10 . When the mountains are scattered (to the winds) as dust;

11 . And when the messengers are (all) appointed a time (to collect);-

12 . For what Day are these (portents) deferred?

13 . For the Day of Sorting out.

14 . And what will explain to thee what is the Day of Sorting out?

15 . Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

16 . Did We not destroy the men of old (for their evil)?

17 . So shall We make later (generations) follow them.

18 . Thus do We deal with men of sin.

19 . Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

20 . Have We not created you from a fluid (held) despicable?-

21 . The which We placed in a place of rest, firmly fixed,

22 . For a period (of gestation), determined (according to need)?

23 . For We do determine (according to need); for We are the best to determine (things).

24 . Ah woe, that Day! to the Rejecters of Truth!

25 . Have We not made the earth (as a place) to draw together.

26 . The living and the dead,

27 . And made therein mountains standing firm, lofty (in stature); and provided for you water sweet (and wholesome)?

28 . Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

29 . (It will be said:) "Depart ye to that which ye used to reject as false!

30 . "Depart ye to a Shadow (of smoke ascending) in three columns,

31 . "(Which yields) no shade of coolness, and is of no use against the fierce Blaze.

32 . "Indeed it throws about sparks (huge) as Forts,

33 . "As if there were (a string of) yellow camels (marching swiftly)."

34 . Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

35 . That will be a Day when they shall not be able to speak.

36 . Nor will it be open to them to put forth pleas.

37 . Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

38 . That will be a Day of Sorting out! We shall gather you together and those before (you)!

39 . Now, if ye have a trick (or plot), use it against Me!

40 . Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

41 . As to the Righteous, they shall be amidst (cool) shades and springs (of water).

42 . And (they shall have) fruits,- all they desire.

43 . "Eat ye and drink ye to your heart´s content: for that ye worked (Righteousness).

44 . Thus do We certainly reward the Doers of Good.

45 . Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

46 . (O ye unjust!) Eat ye and enjoy yourselves (but) a little while, for that ye are Sinners.

47 . Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

48 . And when it is said to them, "Prostrate yourselves!" they do not so.

49 . Ah woe, that Day, to the Rejecters of Truth!

50 . Then what Message, after that, will they believe in?
