In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

By the dust scattering winds;[1] then by the heavy laden clouds;[2] then by their swift gliding;[3] then by those who distribute the big affair (rain);[4] surely, that which you are being promised is true;[5] and surely, the Day of Judgment shall come to pass.[6] By the sky full of orbits,[7] surely you contradict one another in what you say,[8] only the perverse persons turn away from the truth.[9] Woe to those who judge by conjecture,[10] those who are engulfed in ignorance and heedlessness.[11] They ask: “When will the Day of Judgment be?”[12] It will be the Day when they will be punished in the fire,[13] and it will be said: “Taste your chastisement! This is what you were seeking to hasten."[14] As to the righteous, they will be in the midst of gardens and springs,[15] joyfully receiving what their Rabb shall give them; for they were before that (during their life on earth) righteous people,[16] They used to sleep but little in the night time,[17] pray for forgiveness in the early morning,[18] and share their wealth with the needy who asked for it, and those who did not ask.[19] In the earth, there are signs for the firm believers,[20] and also in your own selves; can you not see?[21] In heaven is your sustenance and all that you are promised.[22] I swear by the Rabb of heaven and earth that this is true, as certain as you are speaking now![23]


Surely the Day of Judgment shall come to pass, only the perverse persons turn away from this truth

Have you heard the story of Ibrãhïm’s honored guests?[24] When they came to him and said: “Peace be upon you!” “Peace be upon you also!” he answered, and seeing that they were strangers,[25] he went quietly to his family, brought a roasted calf[26] and placed it before them saying: “Will you not eat?”[27] When he saw them not eating, he became afraid of them. They said: “Have no fear,” and they gave him good news of a son endowed with knowledge.[28] Hearing this his wife came forward, with astonishment she smote her forehead and said: “A son to a barren old woman!”[29] They replied: “Thus has said your Rabb: surely He is the Wise, the Knowledgeable.”[30]


Story of the Prophet Ibrãhïm, when he was given the good news of having a son

Ibrãhïm (Abraham) asked: “O Divine Messengers, what is your errand?”[31] They replied: “We have been sent to a guilty nation (people of Lot, who were homosexuals),[32] to shower upon them brimstone,[33] marked by your Rabb for the transgressors."[34] Then We saved all those who were believers in the town[35] - We found none but one household of true Muslims[36] - We left therein a sign for those who fear the painful punishment.[37]


The same angels who gave good news to Ibrãhïm annihilated the nation of homosexuals

There is also a sign for you in the story of Musa (Moses): when We sent him to Fir'on (Pharaoh) with clear authority,[38] but he turned his back along with his chiefs, saying: “He (Moses) is a sorcerer or a madman."[39] Consequently, We seized him and his warriors, and cast them into the sea. Indeed he deserved much blame.[40] There is also a sign in the story of 'Ad: when We let loose on them a blighting wind[41] which made rotten everything that it blew on.[42] Likewise the story of Thamüd, when it was said to them: “Enjoy yourselves for a while,”[43] but they disobeyed the commandment of their Rabb; consequently they were overtaken by the thunderbolt even while they were looking on.[44] So neither they could stand up on their feet nor could they defend themselves.[45] And We destroyed the people of Nüh (Noah) before them because they too were transgressors.[46]


There is a lesson in the stories of Fir'on, 'Ad, Thamüd and people of Nüh

We have built the heavens with Our hands, for We have the power to do so.[47] We have spread out the earth; how excellent a spreader We are![48] We have created everything in pairs, so that you may learn a lesson from it.[49] O Prophet, say to mankind: “Rush towards Allah, surely I am assigned by Him as a plain Warner to you all.[50] Do not set up another god besides Allah, surely I am assigned by Him as a plain Warner to you all."[51] It has been the case that whenever a Rasool came to the peoples before them, they said about him: “He is a sorcerer or a madman."[52] Have they transmitted this statement from one generation to the next? Nay, but they are all a rebellious people.[53] So, O Prophet, ignore them; you are not at fault.[54] But keep on admonishing them, for admonition is beneficial to the true believers.[55] We have not created jinns and mankind except to worship Me.[56] I require no sustenance from them, nor do I ask that they should feed Me.[57] Surely it is Allah Who is the giver of all sustenance, the Lord of Power, the Invincible.[58] Surely those who are wrongdoers, shall have their portion of torment similar to the portion of their predecessors; so let them not challenge Me to hurry it on.[59] Woe then to the unbelievers, on that Day with which they are being threatened![60]


Allah, Who built the heavens and spread out the earth, has assigned the Prophet Muhammad to be a Warner for mankind

This Sürah emphasizes the Hereafter , and extends an invitation to Tawhïd. The people are warned that refusal to accept the message of the Prophets and persistence in ignorance proved to be disastrous for those nations who adopted this attitude in the past.

People’s different and conflicting beliefs about the end of human life are themselves an express proof that none of these beliefs and creeds is based on knowledge; everyone has individually formed an ideology on the basis of conjecture which has become his creed. Some thought that there would be no life-after-death; some believed in life- after-death, but in the form of the transmigration of souls; some believed in the life hereafter and the meeting out of reward and punishment, but invented different sorts of props and supports to escape retribution. About a question of such vital and fundamental importance, a wrong view of which renders man’s whole life-work wasted ultimately ruining his future for ever, it would be a disastrous folly to build an ideology only on the basis of speculation and conjecture, and without knowledge. It would mean that man should remain involved in grave misunderstanding, his whole life passing in heedless error, and after death, should suddenly meet with a situation for which he had made no preparation at all. There is only one way of forming the right opinion about such a question and it is through the knowledge that the Prophet of Allah has conveyed.

The invitation to Tawhïd is given in the following words: “Your Creator has not created you for the service of others, but for His own service. He is not like your false gods which receive sustenance from you and the godhead of which cannot function without your help. He is the God, Who is the Sustainer of all, Who does not stand in need of sustenance from anyone and Whose Godhead is functioning by His own power and might. Finally, the Prophet is instructed to ignore the rebels and keep on performing his mission of invitation and admonition, for it is useful and beneficial for the believers, although it may not be so for the other people. As for the wicked people who still persist in their rebellion, they should know that their predecessors who followed the same way of life, have already received their shares of the punishment.
