Asalam o Alykum, welcome to 152nd part of our Discover the Holy Quran project. In this part we will verses 38 to 60 of Surah Adh-Dhariyat. Let’s begin:
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
38- And in Moses (was another Sign): Behold, We sent him to Pharaoh, with authority manifest.
39- But (Pharaoh) turned back with his Chiefs, and said, “A sorcerer, or one possessed!”
40- So We took him and his forces, and threw them into the sea; and his was the blame.
41- And in the ‘Ad (people) (was another Sign): Behold, We sent against them the devastating Wind.
42- It left nothing whatever that it came up against, but reduced it to ruin and rottenness.
43- And in the Thamud (was another Sign): Behold, they were told, “Enjoy (your brief day) for a little while!”
44- But they insolently defied the Command of their Lord: So the stunning noise (of an earthquake) seized them, even while they were looking on.
45- They then could not even stand (on their feet), nor could they help themselves.
46- So were the People of Noah before them for they wickedly transgressed.
47- With power and skill did We construct the Firmament: for it is We Who create the vastness of pace.
48- And We have spread out the (spacious) earth: How excellently We do spread out!
49- And of every thing We have created pairs: Thay ye may receive instruction.
50- Hasten ye then (at once) to Allah. I am from Him a Warner to you, clear and open!
51- And make not another an object of worship with Allah. I am from Him a Warner to you, clear and open!
52- Similarly, no apostle came to the Peoples before them, but they said (of him) in like manner, “A sorcerer, or one possessed!”
53- Is this the legacy they have transmitted, one to another? Nay, they are themselves a people transgressing beyond bounds!
54- So turn away from them: not thine is the blame.
55- But teach (thy Message) for teaching benefits the Believers.
56- I have only created Jinns and men, that they may serve Me.
57- No Sustenance do I require of them, nor do I require that they should feed Me.
58- For Allah is He Who gives (all) Sustenance,- Lord of Power,- Steadfast (for ever).
59- For the Wrong-doers, their portion is like unto the portion of their fellows (of earlier generations): then let them not ask Me to hasten (that portion)!
60- Woe, then, to the Unbelievers, on account of that Day of theirs which they have been promised!
May Allah Give us sustenance and Forgive our Sins. (Ameen)
