Sūra C.

’Adiyāt, or Those that run.

In the name of God, Most Gracious,
Most Merciful.

1. By the (Steeds)
That run, with panting (breath),

2. And strike sparks of fire,

3. And push home the charge
In the morning,

4. And raise the dust
In clouds the while,

5. And penetrate forthwith
Into the midst (of the foe)
En masse;

p. 1775

6. Truly Man is,
To his Lord,

7. And to that (fact)
He bears witness
(By his deeds);

8. And violent is he
In his love of wealth.

9. Does he not know,—
When that which is
In the graves is
Scattered abroad

10. And that which is
(Locked up) in (human) breasts
Is made manifest—

11. That their Lord had been
Well-acquainted with them,
(Even to) that Day?
