The Scatterers

Revealed at Mecca, Verses: 60 In the name of Allah, The Merciful, The All-merciful
  1. By the forces that scatter wide apart,(1)
  2. then carry the burden,(2)
  3. then run with ease,(3)
  4. then apportion the thing ordained,(4)
  5. surely that you are promised is true,(5)
  6. and the Recompense must come to pass.(6)
  7. By the heaven of the tracks,(7)
  8. you are at variance in speech,(8)
  9. and perverted from it is the one perverted.(9)
  10. Perish the conjecturers,(10)
  11. who in confusion are forgetful __(11)
  12. they ask, `when shall be the Day of Recompense?'(12)
  13. `On the day when they shall be tried at the Fire: (13)
  14. `Taste your trial! This is what you have been seeking to hasten'.(14)
  15. The godfearing shall be amidst gardens and fountains,(15)
  16. taking what their Lord would give them; they were surely good-doers before that.(16)
  17. Little of the night would they sleep;(17)
  18. and at dawns they would pray for forgiveness.(18)
  19. And in their wealth was a right for the beggar and the destitute.(19)
  20. And in the earth are Signs for those who have faith(20)
  21. and also in your selves; will you not see?(21)
  22. And in the heaven is your provision, and that which you are promised.(22)
  23. So by the Lord of the heaven and the earth, it is as surely true as that you speak.(23)
  24. Hast the story of the honoured guests of Abraham come to thee?(24)
  25. When they entered to him, they said, `peace'; he said, `peace; a people unknown!'(25)
  26. Then he turned to his household and brought a fattened calf,(26)
  27. and laid it before them, saying, `will you not eat?'(27)
  28. Then he conceived fear of them. They said, `fear not'. And they gave him good news of a learned boy.(28)
  29. Then came forward his wife clamouring, and she struck her face, and said, `a barren old woman!'(29)
  30. They said, `so has thy Lord said; surely He is the Wise, the Knowing.'(30)
  31. He said, `what is your business, O envoys?(31)
  32. They said, `We have been sent to a people of sinners(32)
  33. that We may loose upon them stones of clay,(33)
  34. marked with thy Lord for the extravagant'.(34)
  35. Then We brought forth whoso was a Believer in it,(35)
  36. and We did not find in it another house of those that had surrendered.(36)
  37. And We left in it a Sign for those who fear the painful punishment.(37)
  38. And also in Moses, when We sent him to Pharaoh with a clear authority.(38)
  39. But he, together with his court, turned back, and said, `a sorcerer or a mad man'.(39)
  40. Then We seized him and his hosts, and cast them into the sea, and he was to blame.(40)
  41. And also in Ad, when We loosed upon them a devastating wind,(41)
  42. which left nothing it came upon, but made it as stuff decayed.(42)
  43. And also in Thamood, when it was said to them, `enjoy for a while!'(43)
  44. But they turned in disdain from the commandment of their Lord. So the thunderbolt took them,(44)
  45. while they looked on. Then they could not stand up, nor could defend themselves.(45)
  46. And the people of Noah before; they were a people of trangressors. (46)
  47. And the heaven, We built it with might, and We will surely be extending it.(47)
  48. And the earth, We spread it forth, and how excellent are the smoothers!(48)
  49. And of everything We created two kinds that you may heed.(49)
  50. So flee to God; I am from Him a clear warner to you.(50)
  51. And do not set up with God another god; I am from Him a clear warner to you.(51)
  52. Even so no Messenger came to those before them but they said, `a sorcerer or a mad man!'(52)
  53. Have they bequeathed it on? No, they are an insolent people.(53)
  54. So turn thou away from them, for thou art not to blame.(54)
  55. And remind, for the Reminder profits the Believers.(55)
  56. And I have not created jinn and men except that they should serve Me.(56)
  57. I do not desire of them any provision, and I do not desire that they should feed Me.(57)
  58. Surely God is the All-provider, the Strong, the Firm.(58)
  59. The wrong-doers shall have the portion like the portion of their fellows, so let them not seek to hasten Me!(59)
  60. And woe to the unbelievers, for that day of theirs that they are promised.(60)
