1 . By the winds sent forth with beneficence.
2 . And those raging swiftly;
3 . By the spreading winds spreading.
4 . And the scattering wind scattering.
5 . And those winds that bring down the remembrance.
6 . By way of excuse or warning.
7 . Verily that which ye are promised is about to befall.
8 . So when stars are effaced.
9 . And when the heaven is cloven asunder.
10 . And when the mountains are carried away by wind.
11 . And when the apostles are collected at the appointed time,
12 . For what day is it timed?
13 . For the Day of Decision.
14 . And what knowest thou what the Day of Decision is?
15 . Woe on that day Unto the beliers
16 . Destroyed We not the ancients?
17 . Thereafter We shall cause to follow them the latter ones.
18 . In this wise We do with the culprits.
19 . Woe on that day Unto the beliers!
20 . Created We you not of water despicable,
21 . Which We placed in a depository safe.
22 . Till a limit known?
23 . So We decreed. How excellent are We as decreers!
24 . Woe on that day Unto the beliers!
25 . Have We not made the earth a receptacle.
26 . Both for the living and the dead,
27 . And have placed therein firm and tall mountains and given you to drink of water fresh
28 . Woe on that day Unto the beliers!
29 . ´Depart Unto that which ye were wont to belie.
30 . Depart Unto the shadow three branched:
31 . Neither shading nor availing against the flame.
32 . Verily it shall cast forth sparks like Unto a castle.
33 . As though they were camels yellow tawny.
34 . Woe on that day Unto the beliers!
35 . This is a Day whereon they shall not be able to speak.
36 . Nor shall they be permitted so that they might excuse themselves.
37 . Woe on that day Unto the beliers!
38 . This is the Day of Decision, We have assembled both ye and the ancients.
39 . If now ye have any craft, try that craft upon Me.
40 . Woe on the day Unto the beliers!
41 . Verily the God-fearing shall be amid shades and springs,
42 . And fruits such as they shall desire.
43 . ´Eat and drink with relish that which ye have been working.
44 . Verily We! in this wise We recompense the well-doers.
45 . Woe on that day Unto the beliers!
46 . ´Eat and enjoy a little; verily ye are culprits.
47 . Woe on that day Unto the beliers!
48 . And when it is said Unto them: ´bow down, they bow not down.
49 . Woe on that day Unto the beliers!
50 . In what discourse, then, after it, will they believe?
