Hamid S. Aziz rendition of Surah Those Who Set The Ranks, Drawn up in Ranks, The Rangers(as-Saffat)
37:1 I swear by those who draw themselves out in ranks
37:2 Then those who drive away (evil or the wicked) with reproof (or strength)
37:3 Then those who recite (proclaim), with mindfulness
37:4 "Verily, verily your God is One
37:5 "The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, and Lord of the Easts (i.e. all the sun´s rising point)."
37:6 Surely We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment, the stars
37:7 And (there is) a safeguard against every rebellious Satan
37:8 They cannot listen to the exalted assembly and they are thrown at from every side
37:9 Being driven off, and for them is a perpetual chastisement
37:10 Except him who snatches a fragment by stealth, then there follows him a brightly shining flame
37:11 Then ask them whether they are stronger in creation or those (others) whom We have created. Surely We created them of plastic (malleable) clay
37:12 Nay! You wonder while they mock
37:13 And when they are reminded, they mind (heed) not
37:14 And when they see a sign they incite one another to scoff
37:15 And they say, "This is nothing but clear magic
37:16 "What! When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then certainly be raised
37:17 "Or our fathers of past times (ancestors)?"
37:18 Say, "Aye! And you shall be abject (humiliated)."
37:19 So it shall only be a single Shout, when lo! They shall see
37:20 And they shall say, "O woe to us! This is the Day of Judgment."
37:21 (A voice will say,) "This is the Day of the Judgment which you called a lie
37:22 "Gather together those who were unjust and their associates, and what they used to worshi
37:23 "Besides Allah, then lead them to the way to hell
37:24 "And stop them, for they must be questioned
37:25 "What ails you that you do not help each other?"
37:26 Nay! On that day they shall be submissive
37:27 And some of them shall advance towards others, questioning each other
37:28 They shall say, "Surely you used to come to us from the right hand side."
37:29 They shall say, "Nay, you (yourselves) were not believers
37:30 "And we had no authority over you, but you were a wayward people
37:31 "So the sentence of our Lord has come to pass against us: we shall surely taste (punishment)
37:32 "We led you astray, for we were ourselves erring."
37:33 So they shall on that day be sharers in the chastisement one with another
37:34 Surely thus do We deal with the guilty
37:35 Surely they used to behave arrogantly when it was said to them, "There is no God but Allah."
37:36 And said, "What! Shall we indeed give up our gods for the sake of a mad poet?"
37:37 Nay, he has come with the truth and verified the (messages of) the Messengers sent before him
37:38 Most surely you will taste the painful punishment
37:39 And you shall not be punished except for what you did
37:40 Save the servants of Allah, the purified ones
37:41 For them is a determined sustenance
37:42 Fruits, and they shall be highly honoured
37:43 In Gardens of Felicity
37:44 On Thrones (of Dignity), facing each other
37:45 A bowl shall be made to go round them from water running out of clear springs
37:46 Crystal-white, delicious to those who drink
37:47 There shall be no distress in it, nor shall they be exhausted therewith
37:48 And with them shall be those of modest gaze with large beautiful eyes
37:49 As if they were delicate eggs carefully protected
37:50 Then shall some of them turn to others, questioning each other
37:51 A speaker from among them shall say, "Surely I had a comrade on earth
37:52 "Who said, ´What! are you indeed of those who bear witness to (the truth)
37:53 "´What! When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then, indeed, be brought to judgment?´"
37:54 (A voice) Will say, "Will you look down?"
37:55 Then he looked down and saw him in the midst of hell
37:56 He shall say (to the sceptic), "By Allah! You had almost caused me to perish
37:57 "And had it not been for the grace of my Lord, I would certainly have been among those brought there
37:58 "Is it then true that we shall not die
37:59 "Except our previous death? And that we shall not be chastised?"
37:60 Most surely this is the supreme achievement
37:61 For the like of this then let the workers work
37:62 Is this better as an entertainment or the tree of Zaqqum (having bitter fruit)
37:63 Surely We have made it to be a trial to the unjust
37:64 Surely it is a tree that grows in the bottom of hell
37:65 Its produce is as it were the heads of the serpents (or devils)
37:66 Then verily, they shall eat of it and fill (their) bellies with it
37:67 Then afterwards they shall drink a mixture prepared in boiling water
37:68 Then most surely their return shall be to hell
37:69 Certainly, they found their fathers going astray
37:70 So in their footsteps they hasten on
37:71 And certainly most of the ancients went astray before them
37:72 And certainly We sent among them Warners
37:73 Then see what was the end of those who were warned
37:74 Except the servants of Allah, the purified ones
37:75 And Noah did certainly call upon Us, and the most gracious of Hearer of prayer are We
37:76 And We delivered him and his followers from the mighty distress
37:77 And We made his offspring the survivors
37:78 And We perpetuated to him praise among the later generations
37:79 (This blessing) "Peace and salutation to Noah among the nations"
37:80 Thus do We surely reward the doers of good
37:81 Surely he was of Our believing servants
37:82 Then did We drown the other
37:83 And most surely Abraham followed his way
37:84 When he came to his Lord with a whole (sound, pure) heart
37:85 When he said to his father and his people, " What is it that you worship?"
37:86 "Is it lies - gods besides Allah - that you desire
37:87 "What is then your idea about the Lord of the Worlds?"
37:88 Then he looked at the stars, looking up once
37:89 Then he said, "Verily, I am sick (at heart of your worshipping these)."
37:90 So they turned their backs and went away
37:91 Then he turned to their gods secretly and said, "What! Do you not eat
37:92 "What is the matter with you that you do not speak?"
37:93 Then he attacked them, smiting them with his right hand
37:94 So they (people) advanced towards him, hastening
37:95 Said he, "Worship you what you yourselves carve out
37:96 "When Allah has created you and what you make?"
37:97 They said, "Build for him a furnace, then cast him into the burning fire."
37:98 And they designed a plot against him, but We brought them low
37:99 And he said, "Surely I flee to my lord; He will guide me
37:100 "My Lord! Grant me those who do good deeds."
37:101 So We gave him the good news of a gentle son
37:102 And when his son was old enough to work with him, he said, "O my son! Surely I have seen in a dream that I should sacrifice you; consider then what do you think." He said. "O my father! Do what you are commanded; if Allah wills, you will f
37:103 So when they had both Surrendered (unto Allah in Islam) and he threw him down upon his face
37:104 And We called out to him saying, "O Abraham
37:105 You have indeed fulfiled the vision; surely thus do We reward the doers of good
37:106 Most surely this is a manifest trial
37:107 And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice
37:108 And We perpetuated to him among the later generations
37:109 (This blessing) "Peace be on Abraham"
37:110 Thus do We reward the doers of good
37:111 Surely he was one of Our believing servants
37:112 And We gave him the good news of Isaac, a prophet among the righteous
37:113 And We showered Our blessings on him and on Isaac; and of their offspring are some who do good, and also some who are clearly unjust to their own souls
37:114 And certainly We conferred a favour on Moses and Aaron
37:115 And We delivered them both and their people from the mighty distress
37:116 And We helped them, so they became the victors
37:117 And We gave them both the Book that clarifies
37:118 And We guided them both on the Straight Way
37:119 And We perpetuated to them among the later generations
37:120 (This blessing) "Peace be on Moses and Aaron"
37:121 Even thus do We reward the doers of good
37:122 Surely they were both of Our believing servants
37:123 And Elias was most surely one of those sent
37:124 When he said to his people, "Do you not guard (against evil)
37:125 "What! Do you call upon Baal and forsake the best of Creators
37:126 "Allah, your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of past times (ancestors)?"
37:127 But they called him a liar, therefore they shall most surely be brought forth (to the doom)
37:128 But not the servants of Allah, the purified ones
37:129 And We perpetuated to him among the later generations
37:130 (This blessing) "Peace be on Elias"
37:131 Even thus do We reward the doers of good
37:132 Surely he was one of Our believing servants
37:133 And Lot was most surely one of those sent
37:134 When We delivered him and his followers, everyon
37:135 Except an old woman who was amongst those who lingered behind
37:136 Then We destroyed the others
37:137 And most surely you pass by their (ruins) in the morning
37:138 And at night; do you not then understand
37:139 And Jonah was most surely of those sent
37:140 When he ran away to a ship completely laden
37:141 Then he drew lots, but was of those rejected
37:142 And the fish swallowed him while he was blameworthy
37:143 But had it not been that he was of those who glorify (Us)
37:144 He would certainly have tarried in its belly to the day when they are raised
37:145 Then We cast him on to the desert shore while he was sick
37:146 And We caused a gourd plant to grow above him
37:147 And We sent him to a hundred thousand folk or more
37:148 And they believed; therefore, We gave them provision for a time
37:149 Now ask them (O Muhammad) has your Lord daughters while they have sons
37:150 Or did We create the angels females while they were witnesses
37:151 Verily, it is of their own lies that they say
37:152 "Allah has begotten"; and most surely they are liars
37:153 Has He chosen daughters in preference to sons
37:154 What ails you, how is it that you judge
37:155 Will you not then reflect
37:156 Or have you a clear authority
37:157 Then bring your book (writ, record), if you are truthful
37:158 And they assert a relationship between Him and the Jinn; and certainly the Jinn do know that they shall surely be brought forth
37:159 Glory be to Allah from all that they attribute (unto Him)
37:160 But not so the servants of Allah, the purified ones
37:161 So surely you and what you worship
37:162 Cannot lead into temptation anyone against Him
37:163 Save him who will go to hell
37:164 (The angels or those who are ranged in ranks say,) "And there is none of us but has an assigned place
37:165 "Verily, we, even we, are they who draw out in ranks
37:166 "Verily, we, even we, are they who declare the glory (of Allah)."
37:167 And there are those who used to say
37:168 "Had we a reminder from those of yore
37:169 "We would certainly have been the single-minded servants of Allah
37:170 But (now that it is come) they disbelieve in it; but they will come to know
37:171 And certainly Our word has already gone forth before this unto Our servants sen
37:172 That most surely they shall be helpe
37:173 And most surely Our host alone shall be the victorious ones
37:174 Therefore, turn away from them till a time
37:175 And watch, for they will soon come to see
37:176 What! Would they then hasten Our chastisement
37:177 But when it descends on them, evil will then be the morning for those who have been warned
37:178 And turn away from them for a tim
37:179 And watch, for they will soon come to see
37:180 Glorified be your Lord, the Lord of Majesty, above all that which they attribute (unto Him)
37:181 And peace be unto those who are sent
37:182 And all praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds
