Surah Adh-Dhariyat 51:51-60

51:51 And do not ascribe divinity to aught side by side with God: verily, I am a plain warner to you from Him!”

51:52 [But] thus it is: never yet came any apostle to those who lived before their time but they said, “A spellbinder [is he], or a madman!”

51:53 Have they, perchance, handed down this [way of thinking] as a legacy unto one another? Nay, they are people filled with overweening arrogance!

51:54 Turn, then, away from them, and thou shalt incur no blame.

51:55 yet go on reminding [all who w6uld listen]: for, verily, such a reminder will profit the believers.

51:56 And [tell them that] I have not created the invisible beings and men to any end other than that they may [know and] worship Me.

51:57 [But withal] no sustenance do I ever demand of them, nor do I demand that they feed Me.

51:58 for, verily, God Himself is the Provider of all sustenance, the Lord of all might, the Eternal!

51:59 And, verily, they who are bent on doing evil shall have their share [of evil] like unto the share of their fellows [of old], so let them not ask Me to hasten [their doom]!

51:60 For, woe unto those who are bent on denying the truth – [woe] on the Day which they have been promised!


The divine scriptures are God’s beacons to the world. Surely God offered His trust to the heavens and the earth, and the hills, but they shrank from bearing it and were afraid of it. And man undertook it.
