1By the snorting chargers,
2by the strikers of fire,
3by the dawn-raiders
4blazing a trail of dust,
5cleaving there with a host!
6Surely Man is ungrateful to his Lord,
7and surely he is a witness against that!
8Surely he is passionate in his love for good things.
9Knows he not that when that which is in the tombs is over-thrown,
10and that which is in the breasts is brought out --
11surely on that day their Lord shall be aware of them!
