Quran with English Translation

Surah Al Dhariyat

English Translation by Dr Muhsin Khan, Dr Hilali

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


وَٱلذَّٲرِيَـٰتِ ذَرۡوً۬ا 

By (the winds) that scatter dust.


فَٱلۡحَـٰمِلَـٰتِ وِقۡرً۬ا 

And (the clouds) that bear heavy weight of water;


فَٱلۡجَـٰرِيَـٰتِ يُسۡرً۬ا 

And (the ships) that float with ease and gentleness;


فَٱلۡمُقَسِّمَـٰتِ أَمۡرًا 

And those (angels) who distribute (provisions, rain, and other blessings) by (Allahs) Command;


إِنَّمَا تُوعَدُونَ لَصَادِقٌ۬ 

Verily, that which you are promised (i.e. Resurrection in the Hereafter and receiving the reward or punishment of good or bad deeds, etc.) is surely true.


وَإِنَّ ٱلدِّينَ لَوَٲقِعٌ۬ 

And verily, the Recompense is sure to happen.


وَٱلسَّمَآءِ ذَاتِ ٱلۡحُبُكِ 

By the heaven full of paths,


إِنَّكُمۡ لَفِى قَوۡلٍ۬ مُّخۡتَلِفٍ۬

Certainly, you have different ideas (about Muhammad SAW and the Quran).


يُؤۡفَكُ عَنۡهُ مَنۡ أُفِكَ 

Turned aside therefrom (i.e. from Muhammad SAW and the Quran) is he who is turned aside (by the Decree and Preordainment of Allah).


قُتِلَ ٱلۡخَرَّٲصُونَ 

Cursed be the liars,


ٱلَّذِينَ هُمۡ فِى غَمۡرَةٍ۬ سَاهُونَ

Who are under a cover of heedlessness (think not about the gravity of the Hereafter),


يَسۡـَٔلُونَ أَيَّانَ يَوۡمُ ٱلدِّينِ 

They ask; "When will be the Day of Recompense?"


يَوۡمَ هُمۡ عَلَى ٱلنَّارِ يُفۡتَنُونَ 

(It will be) a Day when they will be tried (i.e. burnt) over the Fire!


ذُوقُواْ فِتۡنَتَكُمۡ هَـٰذَا ٱلَّذِى كُنتُم بِهِۦ تَسۡتَعۡجِلُونَ 

"Taste you your trial (burning)! This is what you used to ask to be hastened!"


إِنَّ ٱلۡمُتَّقِينَ فِى جَنَّـٰتٍ۬ وَعُيُونٍ 

Verily, the Muttaqoon (pious - see V.2:2) will be in the midst of Gardens and Springs (in the Paradise),


ءَاخِذِينَ مَآ ءَاتَٮٰهُمۡ رَبُّہُمۡ‌ۚ

Taking joy in the things which their Lord has given them.

إِنَّہُمۡ كَانُواْ قَبۡلَ ذَٲلِكَ مُحۡسِنِينَ 

Verily, they were before this Muhsinoon (good-doers - see V.2:112).


كَانُواْ قَلِيلاً۬ مِّنَ ٱلَّيۡلِ مَا يَہۡجَعُونَ 

They used to sleep but little by night (invoking their Lord (Allah) and praying, with fear and hope).


وَبِٱلۡأَسۡحَارِ هُمۡ يَسۡتَغۡفِرُونَ 

And in the hours before dawn, they were (found) asking (Allah) for forgiveness,


وَفِىٓ أَمۡوَٲلِهِمۡ حَقٌّ۬ لِّلسَّآٮِٕلِ وَٱلۡمَحۡرُومِ

And in their properties there was the right of the beggar, and the Mahroom (the poor who does not ask the others) ,


وَفِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ ءَايَـٰتٌ۬ لِّلۡمُوقِنِينَ 

And on the earth are signs for those who have Faith with certainty,


وَفِىٓ أَنفُسِكُمۡ‌ۚ

And also in your ownselves.

أَفَلَا تُبۡصِرُونَ 

Will you not then see?


وَفِى ٱلسَّمَآءِ رِزۡقُكُمۡ وَمَا تُوعَدُونَ 

And in the heaven is your provision, and that which you are promised.


فَوَرَبِّ ٱلسَّمَآءِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ إِنَّهُ ۥ لَحَقٌّ۬ مِّثۡلَ مَآ أَنَّكُمۡ تَنطِقُونَ 

Then, 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.


هَلۡ أَتَٮٰكَ حَدِيثُ ضَيۡفِ إِبۡرَٲهِيمَ ٱلۡمُكۡرَمِينَ 

Has the story reached you, of the honoured guests (three angels; Jibrael (Gabriel) along with another two) of Ibraheem (Abraham)?


إِذۡ دَخَلُواْ عَلَيۡهِ فَقَالُواْ سَلَـٰمً۬ا‌ۖ

When they came in to him, and said, "Salam, (peace be upon you)!"

قَالَ سَلَـٰمٌ۬

He answered; "Salam, (peace be upon you ),"

قَوۡمٌ۬ مُّنكَرُونَ 

and said: "You are a people unknown to me,"


فَرَاغَ إِلَىٰٓ أَهۡلِهِۦ فَجَآءَ بِعِجۡلٍ۬ سَمِينٍ۬ 

Then he turned to his household, so brought out a roasted calf (as the property of Ibraheem (Abraham) was mainly cows).


فَقَرَّبَهُ ۥۤ إِلَيۡہِمۡ

And placed it before them,

قَالَ أَلَا تَأۡكُلُونَ 

(saying): "Will you not eat?"


فَأَوۡجَسَ مِنۡہُمۡ خِيفَةً۬‌ۖ

Then he conceived a fear of them (when they ate not).

قَالُواْ لَا تَخَفۡ‌ۖ

They said: "Fear not."

وَبَشَّرُوهُ بِغُلَـٰمٍ عَلِيمٍ۬ 

And they gave him glad tidings of an intelligent son, having knowledge (about Allah and His religion of True Monotheism).


فَأَقۡبَلَتِ ٱمۡرَأَتُهُ ۥ فِى صَرَّةٍ۬ فَصَكَّتۡ وَجۡهَهَا

Then his wife came forward with a loud voice, she smote her face,

وَقَالَتۡ عَجُوزٌ عَقِيمٌ۬

and said: "A barren old woman!"


قَالُواْ كَذَٲلِكِ قَالَ رَبُّكِ‌ۖ

They said:

"Even so says your Lord.

إِنَّهُ ۥ هُوَ ٱلۡحَكِيمُ ٱلۡعَلِيمُ 

Verily, He is the All-Wise, the All-Knower."


قَالَ فَمَا خَطۡبُكُمۡ أَيُّہَا ٱلۡمُرۡسَلُونَ

(Ibrahim (Abraham)) said: "Then for what purpose you have come, O Messengers?"


قَالُوٓاْ إِنَّآ أُرۡسِلۡنَآ إِلَىٰ قَوۡمٍ۬ مُّجۡرِمِينَ

They said: "We have been sent to a people who are Mujrimoon (polytheists, sinners, criminals, disbelievers in Allah);


لِنُرۡسِلَ عَلَيۡہِمۡ حِجَارَةً۬ مِّن طِينٍ۬ 

To send down upon them stones of baked clay.


مُّسَوَّمَةً عِندَ رَبِّكَ لِلۡمُسۡرِفِينَ 

Marked by your Lord for the Musrifoon (polytheists, criminals, sinners those who trespass Allahs set limits in evil-doings by committing great sins).


فَأَخۡرَجۡنَا مَن كَانَ فِيہَا مِنَ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ

So We brought out from therein the believers.


فَمَا وَجَدۡنَا فِيہَا غَيۡرَ بَيۡتٍ۬ مِّنَ ٱلۡمُسۡلِمِينَ 

But We found not there any household of the Muslims except one (i.e. Lout (Lot) and his two daughters).


وَتَرَكۡنَا فِيہَآ ءَايَةً۬ لِّلَّذِينَ يَخَافُونَ ٱلۡعَذَابَ ٱلۡأَلِيمَ 

And We have left there a sign (i.e. the place of the Dead Sea , well-known in Palestine) for those who fear the painful torment.


وَفِى مُوسَىٰٓ إِذۡ أَرۡسَلۡنَـٰهُ إِلَىٰ فِرۡعَوۡنَ بِسُلۡطَـٰنٍ۬ مُّبِينٍ۬ 

And in Moosa (Moses) (too, there is a sign). When We sent him to Firaun (Pharaoh) with a manifest authority.


فَتَوَلَّىٰ بِرُكۡنِهِۦ وَقَالَ سَـٰحِرٌ أَوۡ مَجۡنُونٌ۬ 

But (Firaun (Pharaoh)) turned away (from Belief in might) along with his hosts, and said: "A sorcerer, or a madman."


فَأَخَذۡنَـٰهُ وَجُنُودَهُ ۥ فَنَبَذۡنَـٰهُمۡ فِى ٱلۡيَمِّ

So We took him and his hosts, and dumped them into the sea,

وَهُوَ مُلِيمٌ۬ 

while he was to be blamed.


وَفِى عَادٍ إِذۡ أَرۡسَلۡنَا عَلَيۡہِمُ ٱلرِّيحَ ٱلۡعَقِيمَ

And in Ad (there is also a sign) when We sent against them the barren wind;


مَا تَذَرُ مِن شَىۡءٍ أَتَتۡ عَلَيۡهِ إِلَّا جَعَلَتۡهُ كَٱلرَّمِيمِ 

It spared nothing that it reached, but blew it into broken spreads of rotten ruins.


وَفِى ثَمُودَ إِذۡ قِيلَ لَهُمۡ تَمَتَّعُواْ حَتَّىٰ حِينٍ۬ 

And in Thamood (there is also a sign), when they were told: "Enjoy yourselves for a while!"


فَعَتَوۡاْ عَنۡ أَمۡرِ رَبِّہِمۡ

But they insolently defied the Command of their Lord,

فَأَخَذَتۡهُمُ ٱلصَّـٰعِقَةُ وَهُمۡ يَنظُرُونَ 

so the Saiqah overtook them while they were looking.


فَمَا ٱسۡتَطَـٰعُواْ مِن قِيَامٍ۬ وَمَا كَانُواْ مُنتَصِرِينَ 

Then they were unable to rise up, nor could they help themselves.


وَقَوۡمَ نُوحٍ۬ مِّن قَبۡلُ‌ۖ

(So were) the people of Nooh (Noah) before them.

إِنَّہُمۡ كَانُواْ قَوۡمً۬ا فَـٰسِقِينَ 

Verily, they were a people who were Fasiqoon (rebellious, disobedient to Allah).


وَٱلسَّمَآءَ بَنَيۡنَـٰهَا بِأَيۡيْدٍ۬ وَإِنَّا لَمُوسِعُونَ

With power did We construct the heaven. Verily, We are Able to extend the vastness of space thereof.


وَٱلۡأَرۡضَ فَرَشۡنَـٰهَا فَنِعۡمَ ٱلۡمَـٰهِدُونَ 

And We have spread out the earth, how Excellent Spreader (thereof) are We!


وَمِن ڪُلِّ شَىۡءٍ خَلَقۡنَا زَوۡجَيۡنِ لَعَلَّكُمۡ تَذَكَّرُونَ 

And of everything We have created pairs, that you may remember (the Grace of Allah).


فَفِرُّوٓاْ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ‌ۖ

So flee to Allah (from His Torment to His Mercy Islamic Monotheism),

إِنِّى لَكُم مِّنۡهُ نَذِيرٌ۬ مُّبِينٌ۬ 

verily, I (Muhammad SAW) am a plain warner to you from Him.


وَلَا تَجۡعَلُواْ مَعَ ٱللَّهِ إِلَـٰهًا ءَاخَرَ‌ۖ

And set not up (or worship) any other ilahan (god) along with Allah (Glorified be He (Alone), Exalted above all that they associate as partners with Him).

إِنِّى لَكُم مِّنۡهُ نَذِيرٌ۬ مُّبِينٌ۬ 

Verily, I (Muhammad SAW) am a plain warner to you from Him.


كَذَٲلِكَ مَآ أَتَى ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبۡلِهِم مِّن رَّسُولٍ إِلَّا قَالُواْ سَاحِرٌ أَوۡ مَجۡنُونٌ 

Likewise, no Messenger came to those before them, but they said: "A sorcerer or a madman!"


أَتَوَاصَوۡاْ بِهِۦ‌ۚ

Have they (the people of the past) transmitted this saying to these (Quraish pagans)?

بَلۡ هُمۡ قَوۡمٌ۬ طَاغُونَ 

Nay, they are themselves a people transgressing beyond bounds (in disbelief)!


فَتَوَلَّ عَنۡہُمۡ فَمَآ أَنتَ بِمَلُومٍ۬

So turn away (O Muhammad SAW) from them (Quraish pagans) you are not to be blamed (as you have conveyed Allahs Message).


وَذَكِّرۡ فَإِنَّ ٱلذِّكۡرَىٰ تَنفَعُ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ 

And remind (by preaching the Quran, O Muhammad SAW) for verily, the reminding profits the believers.


وَمَا خَلَقۡتُ ٱلۡجِنَّ وَٱلۡإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعۡبُدُونِ

And I (Allah) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me (Alone).


مَآ أُرِيدُ مِنۡہُم مِّن رِّزۡقٍ۬ وَمَآ أُرِيدُ أَن يُطۡعِمُونِ 

I 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).


إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ هُوَ ٱلرَّزَّاقُ ذُو ٱلۡقُوَّةِ ٱلۡمَتِينُ 

Verily, Allah is the All-Provider, Owner of Power, the Most Strong.


فَإِنَّ لِلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُواْ ذَنُوبً۬ا مِّثۡلَ ذَنُوبِ أَصۡحَـٰبِہِمۡ

And 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),

فَلَا يَسۡتَعۡجِلُونِ 

so let them not ask Me to hasten on!


فَوَيۡلٌ۬ لِّلَّذِينَ ڪَفَرُواْ مِن يَوۡمِهِمُ ٱلَّذِى يُوعَدُونَ 

Then, woe to those who disbelieve (in Allah and His Oneness Islamic Monotheism) from (that) their Day which they have been promised (for their punishment).
