51:1By the spreaders spreading.

51:2And those carrying loads.

51:3And those moving gently.

51:4And those distributing as commanded.

51:5What you are promised is true.

51:6Judgment will take place.

51:7By the sky that is woven.

51:8You differ in what you say.

51:9Averted from it is he who is averted.

51:10Perish the imposters.

51:11Those who are dazed in ignorance.

51:12They ask, “When is the Day of Judgment?”

51:13The Day they are presented to the Fire.

51:14“Taste your ordeal. This is what you used to challenge.”

51:15But the pious are amidst gardens and springs.

51:16Receiving what their Lord has given them. They were virtuous before that.

51:17They used to sleep a little at night.

51:18And at dawn, they would pray for pardon.

51:19And in their wealth, there was a share for the beggar and the deprived.

51:20And on earth are signs for the convinced.

51:21And within yourselves. Do you not see?

51:22And in the heaven is your livelihood, and what you are promised.

51:23By the Lord of the heaven and the earth, it is as true as the fact that you speak.

51:24Has the story of Abraham’s honorable guests reached you?

51:25When they entered upon him, they said, “Peace.” He said, “Peace, strangers.”

51:26Then he slipped away to his family, and brought a fatted calf.

51:27He set it before them. He said, “Will you not eat?”

51:28And he harbored fear of them. They said, “Do not fear,” and they announced to him the good news of a knowledgeable boy.

51:29His wife came forward crying. She clasped her face, and said, “A barren old woman?”

51:30They said, “Thus spoke your Lord. He is the Wise, the Knowing.”

51:31He said, “What is your business, O envoys?”

51:32They said, “We are sent to a people guilty of sin.”

51:33“To unleash upon them rocks of clay.”

51:34“Marked by your Lord for the excessive.”

51:35We evacuated all the believers who were in it.

51:36But found in it only one household of Muslims.

51:37And We left in it a sign for those who fear the painful punishment.

51:38And in Moses. We sent him to Pharaoh with a clear authority.

51:39But he turned away with his warlords, and said, “A sorcerer or a madman.”

51:40So We seized him and his troops, and threw them into the sea, and He was to blame.

51:41And in Aad. We unleashed against them the devastating wind.

51:42It spared nothing it came upon, but rendered it like decayed ruins.

51:43And in Thamood. They were told, “Enjoy yourselves for a while.”

51:44But they defied the command of their Lord, so the lightning struck them as they looked on.

51:45They could not rise up, nor could they find help.

51:46And before that, the people of Noah. They were immoral people.

51:47We constructed the universe with power, and We are expanding it.

51:48And the earth—We spread it out—How well We prepared it!

51:49We created all things in pairs, so that you may reflect and ponder.

51:50“So flee towards God. I am to you from Him a clear warner.”

51:51“And do not set up any other god with God. I am to you from Him a clear warner.”

51:52Likewise, no messenger came to those before them, but they said, “A sorcerer or a madman.”

51:53Did they recommend it to one another? In fact, they are rebellious people.

51:54So turn away from them; you are not to blame.

51:55And remind, for the reminder benefits the believers.

51:56I did not create the jinn and the humans except to worship Me.

51:57I need no livelihood from them, nor do I need them to feed Me.

51:58God is the Provider, the One with Power, the Strong.

51:59Those who do wrong will have their turn, like the turn of their counterparts, so let them not rush Me.

51:60So woe to those who disbelieve because of that Day of theirs which they are promised.
