100. The Assaulters


In the name of Allah, 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;-

  6. Truly man is, to his Lord, ungrateful;

  7. And to that (fact) he bears witness (byhis deeds);

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

  9. Does he not know,- when that which is inthe graves is scattered abroad

  10. And that which is (locked up) in (human)breasts is made manifest

  11. That their Lord had been Well-acquaintedwith them, (even to) that Day.?
