100. The Charging Steeds (1 – 11)

An early Meccan sura in which God swears by the warhorses He has subjected to man's usea Cf. 36: 71–2; 43: 12–13. that man is ungrateful and misguided.

In the name of God, the Lord of Mercy, the Giver of Mercy

1By the charging steeds that pant 2and strike sparks with their hooves,3who make dawn raids,4raising a cloud of dust,5and plunging into the midst of the enemy, 6man is ungrateful to his Lord—7and He is witness to thisb Or man will by his own actions be a witness against himself on the Day of Judgement.8he is truly excessive in his love of wealth.

9Does he not know that when the contents of graves burst forth, 10when the secrets of hearts are uncovered, on that Day, 11their Lord will be fully aware of them all?

Notes:

a Cf. 36: 71–2; 43: 12–13.

b Or man will by his own actions be a witness against himself on the Day of Judgement.
