Quran & Tafseer, The Noble Quran / Sunday, August 31st, 2008

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.

وَالْعَادِيَاتِ ضَبْحاً (1)

[100:1] (I swear) by those (horses) that run snorting,

فَالْمُورِيَاتِ قَدْحاً (2)

[100:2] then those that create sparks by striking (their hoofs) on the stones,

فَالْمُغِيرَاتِ صُبْحاً (3)

[100:3] then those that invade at morning,

فَأَثَرْنَ بِهِ نَقْعاً (4)

[100:4] then raise, at the same time, a trail of dust,

فَوَسَطْنَ بِهِ جَمْعاً (5)

[100:5] then enter, at the same time, into the centre of the (opposing) host,

إِنَّ الإِنسَانَ لِرَبِّهِ لَكَنُودٌ (6)

[100:6] man is, indeed, very ungrateful to his Lord,

وَإِنَّهُ عَلَى ذَلِكَ لَشَهِيدٌ (7)

[100:7] and he himself is a witness to that fact,

وَإِنَّهُ لِحُبِّ الْخَيْرِ لَشَدِيدٌ (8)

[100:8] and in his love for wealth, he is very intense.

أَفَلا يَعْلَمُ إِذَا بُعْثِرَ مَا فِي الْقُبُورِ (9)

[100:9] Does he not then know (what will happen) when all that is contained in the graves will be overturned,

وَحُصِّلَ مَا فِي الصُّدُورِ (10)

[100:10] and all that is contained in the hearts will be exposed.

إِنَّ رَبَّهُمْ بِهِمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ لَخَبِيرٌ (11)

[100:11] Surely your Lord, that day, is fully aware of them.
