1By (the winds) that scatter dust.
2And (the clouds) that bear heavy weight of water.
3And (the ships) that float with ease and gentleness.
4And those (angels) who distribute (provisions, rain, and other blessings) by (Allah's) Command.
5Verily, that which you are promised (i.e. Resurrection in the Hereafter and receiving the reward or punishment of good or bad deeds) is surely true.
6And verily, the Recompense is sure to happen.
7By the heaven full of paths,
8Certainly, you have different ideas (about Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم and the Qur'an).
9Turned aside therefrom (i.e. from Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم and the Qur'an) is he who is turned aside (by the Decree and Preordainment القضاء والقدر of Allah).
10Cursed be the liars
11Who are under a cover of heedlessness (think not about the gravity of the Hereafter),
12They ask: "When will be the Day of Recompense?"
13(It will be) a Day when they will be tried (punished i.e. burnt) over the Fire!
14"Taste you your trial (punishment i.e. burning)! This is what you used to ask to be hastened!"
15Verily, the Muttaqun (the pious. See V.2:2) will be in the midst of Gardens and Springs (in the Paradise),
16Taking joy in the things which their Lord has given them. Verily, they were before this Muhsinun (good-doers. See V.2:112).
17They used to sleep but little by night [invoking their Lord (Allah) and praying, with fear and hope].
18And in the hours before dawn, they were (found) asking (Allah) for forgiveness.
19And in their properties there was the right of the Sa'il (the beggar who asks) and the Mahrum (the poor who does not ask others) .
20And on the earth are signs for those who have Faith with certainty.
21And also in your ownselves. Will you not then see?
22And in the heaven is your provision, and that which you are promised.
23Then by the Lord of the heaven and the earth, it is the truth (i.e. what has been promised to you), just as it is the truth that you can speak.
24Has the story reached you, of the honoured guests [three angels; Jibril (Gabriel) along with another two] of Ibrahim (Abraham)?
25When they came in to him and said: "Salam, (peace be upon you)!" He answered: "Salam, (peace be upon you)," and said: "You are a people unknown to me."
26Then he turned to his household, and brought out a roasted calf [as the property of Ibrahim (Abraham) was mainly cows].
27And placed it before them, (saying): "Will you not eat?"
28Then he conceived fear of them (when they ate not). They said: "Fear not." And they gave him glad tidings of a son having knowledge (about Allah and His religion of True Monotheism).
29Then his wife came forward with a loud voice: she smote her face, and said: "A barren old woman!"
30They said: "Even so says your Lord. Verily, He is the All-Wise, the All-Knower."
31[Ibrahim (Abraham)] said: "Then for what purpose you have come, O Messengers?"
32They said: "We have been sent to a people who are Mujrimun (polytheists, sinners, criminals, disbelievers in Allah)
33To send down upon them stones of baked clay.
34Marked by your Lord for the Musrifun (polytheists, criminals, sinners - those who trespass Allah's set limits in evil-doings by committing great sins).
35So We brought out from therein the believers.
36But We found not there any household of the Muslims except one [of Lut (Lot) and his two daughters].
37And We have left there a sign (i.e. the place of the Dead Sea in Palestine) for those who fear the painful torment.
38And in Musa (Moses) (too, there is a sign), when We sent him to Fir'aun (Pharaoh) with a manifest authority.
39But [Fir'aun (Pharaoh)] turned away (from Belief in might) along with his hosts, and said: "A sorcerer, or a madman."
40So We took him and his hosts, and dumped them into the sea, for he was blameworthy.
41And in 'Ad (there is also a sign) when We sent against them the barren wind;
42It spared nothing that it reached, but blew it into broken spreads of rotten ruins.
43And in Thamud (there is also a sign), when they were told: "Enjoy yourselves for a while!"
44But they insolently defied the Command of their Lord, so the Sa'iqah overtook them while they were looking.
45Then they were unable to rise up, nor could they help themselves.
46(So were) the people of Nuh (Noah) before them. Verily, they were a people who were Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah).
47With power did We construct the heaven. Verily, We are Able to extend the vastness of space thereof.
48And We have spread out the earth: how Excellent Spreader (thereof) are We!
49And of everything We have created pairs, that you may remember (the Grace of Allah).
50So flee to Allah (from His Torment to His Mercy - Islamic Monotheism). Verily, I (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) am a plain warner to you from Him.
51And set not up (or worship not) any other ilah (god) along with Allah [Glorified be He (Alone), Exalted above all that they associate as partners with Him]. Verily, I (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) am a plain warner to you from Him.
52Likewise, no Messenger came to those before them but they said: "A sorcerer or a madman!"
53Have they (the people of the past) transmitted this saying to these (Quraish pagans)? Nay, they are themselves a people transgressing beyond bounds (in disbelief)!
54So turn away (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) from them (Quraish pagans), you are not blame-worthy (as you have conveyed Allah's Message).
55And remind (by preaching the Qur'an, O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم), for verily, the reminding profits the believers.
56And I (Allah) created not the jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me (Alone).
57I seek not any provision from them (i.e. provision for themselves or for My creatures) nor do I ask that they should feed Me (i.e. feed themselves or My creatures).
58Verily, Allah is the All-Provider, Owner of Power, the Most Strong.
59And verily, for those who do wrong, there is a portion of torment like to the evil portion of torment (which came for) their likes (of old); so let them not ask Me to hasten on!
60Then woe to those who disbelieve (in Allah and His Oneness - Islamic Monotheism) from their Day which they have been promised (for their punishment).
