Ayah Text in عربي, English (Yusuf Ali translation), عربي (بدون تشكيل) and transliteration

By the (Steeds) that run, with panting (breath),
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم والعاديات ضبحا
Wal’aadi yaati dabha

And strike sparks of fire,
فالموريات قدحا
Fal moori yaati qadha

And push home the charge in the morning,
فالمغيرات صبحا
Fal mugheeraati subha

And raise the dust in clouds the while,
فأثرن به نقعا
Fa atharna bihee naq’a

And penetrate forthwith into the midst (of the foe) en masse;-
فوسطن به جمعا
Fawa satna bihee jam’a

Truly man is, to his Lord, ungrateful;
إن الإنسان لربه لكنود
Innal-insana lirabbihee lakanood

And to that (fact) he bears witness (by his deeds);
وإنه على ذلك لشهيد
Wa innahu ‘alaa zaalika la shaheed

And violent is he in his love of wealth.
وإنه لحب الخير لشديد
Wa innahu lihubbil khairi la shadeed

Does he not know,- when that which is in the graves is scattered abroad
۞ أفلا يعلم إذا بعثر ما في القبور
Afala ya’lamu iza b’uthira ma filquboor

And that which is (locked up) in (human) breasts is made manifest-
وحصل ما في الصدور
Wa hussila maa fis sudoor

That their Lord had been Well-acquainted with them, (even to) that Day?
إن ربهم بهم يومئذ لخبير
Inna rabbahum bihim yauma ‘izil la khabeer
