Muhammad Taqi Usmani rendition of Surah Those Who Set The Ranks, Drawn up in Ranks, The Rangers(as-Saffat)
37:1 (I swear) by those who stand in rows
37:2 then by those who prevent firmly
37:3 then by those who recite the dhikr
37:4 surely your God is but One
37:5 the Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, and Lord of the points of sunrise
37:6 Verily, We have decorated the nearest sky with an adornment, the stars
37:7 and (have made them) a security against every rebellious devil
37:8 They cannot listen to the Upper Realm and are hit from every sid
37:9 to be driven off, and for them there is a lasting punishment
37:10 however, if one snatches a little bit, he is pursued by a bright flame
37:11 Now ask them, .Are they stronger in the formation of their bodies, or those (other beings) that We have created?. Certainly, We did create them from sticky clay
37:12 But you wonder (at their denial), and they mock (at the idea of an Hereafter)
37:13 And when any advice is given to them, they pay no heed to it
37:14 And when they see a sign, they make fun of it
37:15 and say, .This is nothing but an open magic
37:16 Is it when we have died and become dust and bones, that we shall be raised again
37:17 and even our fathers of aforetime?
37:18 Say, .Yes, and you shall be disgraced (too)!
37:19 So, it will be only a single castigating call, and all of a sudden they will begin to see
37:20 And they will be saying, .Woe to us; this is the Day of Retribution
37:21 (It will be said to them,) .This is the Day of Judgment that you used to deny
37:22 (It will be said to the angels,) .Muster all those who were unjust, and their fellows, and whatever they used to worshi
37:23 other than Allah, and show them the way to Jahannam
37:24 and stop them (for a while,) for they are to be asked some questions
37:25 (Then they will be asked, .What is wrong with you that you do not help each other?
37:26 On the contrary, that day all of them will have totally surrendered
37:27 And some of them (the followers of their chiefs) will turn to others (the chiefs), asking questions from one another
37:28 They (the followers) will say, .You were the ones who used to come to (mislead) us forcefully
37:29 They (the chiefs) will say, .On the contrary, you yourselves were not believers
37:30 We had no authority over you at all, but you yourselves were a transgressing people
37:31 So, the word of our Lord has come true against us. Indeed, we have to taste (the punishment)
37:32 We did misguide you, (because) we were ourselves erroneous
37:33 So, that day, they will share each other in punishment
37:34 This is how We deal with the criminals
37:35 They were those to whom when it was said: .There is no god but Allah., they waxed proud
37:36 and used to say, .Are we really to leave our gods because of an insane poet?
37:37 No, he has come with Truth and has confirmed all the messengers (of Allah)
37:38 Surely you have to taste the painful punishment,_
37:39 And you will be recompensed for nothing but for what you used to do__
37:40 unlike Allah‘s chosen servants
37:41 Those are the people for whom there is a known provision
37:42 the fruits; and they will be honore
37:43 in Gardens of Blis
37:44 facing each other on couches
37:45 They will be served with a cup from a flowing drink
37:46 (that will be) white (and) delicious for those who drink
37:47 There will be no headache therein, nor will they be intoxicated with it
37:48 and by their side there will be females restricting their gazes (to their husbands), having pretty big eyes
37:49 as if they were eggs hidden (under feathers, protected from pollution)
37:50 Then they will turn to each other asking questions mutually
37:51 A speaker from them will say, .I had a companion (in the worldly life
37:52 who used to say (to me), .Are you one of those who believe
37:53 Is it when we have died and become dust and bones? Is it true that we are going to be recompensed (for our deeds)?
37:54 He (the speaker) will say (to other people in Paradise) .Would you like to have a look (at Jahannam to find out what happened to that companion of mine)?
37:55 So he will look and will see him in the middle of Jahannam
37:56 He (the speaker) will say (to his companion seen in Jahannam ), .By Allah, you were going almost to ruin me
37:57 But for the favor of my Lord, I would have been among those produced for punishment
37:58 (Then the speaker will address other people of Paradise in delight and wonder, saying,) .Are we not then to die anymor
37:59 beyond our first death, nor are we going to be punished?
37:60 This is, indeed, the great achievement
37:61 For this kind (of achievement), all workers must work
37:62 Is that (blissful Paradise) better for hospitality or the tree of zaqqum
37:63 We have made it a test for the unjust
37:64 It is a tree that comes forth in the bottom of Jahannam
37:65 Its fruits are like the heads of devils
37:66 So, they have to eat from it and have to fill their bellies with it
37:67 Then they will have, on top of it, a mixture made of boiling water
37:68 Then, their final return is to the Fire
37:69 They found their fathers on the wrong path
37:70 So, they used to run in their footsteps
37:71 Most of the earlier ones (too) had gone astray before them
37:72 We did send warners among them
37:73 So look, how was the end of those warned
37:74 except Allah‘s chosen servants
37:75 And NuH did call Us (for help after he was disappointed with his people), so (We accepted his prayer, as) We are the best to respond
37:76 And We delivered him and his family from the great agony
37:77 and made his progeny the sole survivors (from the Deluge)
37:78 And We left for him (a word of praise) among the later people, (that is)
37:79 Salam be on NuH among (the people of) all the worlds
37:80 Certainly, this is how We reward those who are good in their deeds
37:81 He was one of Our believing servants
37:82 Then, we drowned others
37:83 And certainly one of his adherents was Ibrahim
37:84 (Remember) when he came to his Lord with a pure heart
37:85 when he said to his father and his people, .What is that which you worship
37:86 Do you wish (to have) fallacious gods other than Allah
37:87 Then, what do you think about the Lord of the worlds?
37:88 Then, he cast a look at the stars
37:89 and then said, .I feel indisposed
37:90 So they went away from him, turning their backs
37:91 And he made his way to their ‘gods‘ and said to them, .Why would you not eat
37:92 What is wrong with you that you do not speak?
37:93 Then he attacked them striking with his right hand
37:94 Then, they (the idolaters) came to him rushing
37:95 He said, .Do you worship what is carved by yourselves
37:96 while Allah has created you and what you make?
37:97 They said, .Build for him a structure, and throw him into the blazing fire
37:98 So, they intended to bring harm to him, but We made them the lowest (by frustrating their plan)
37:99 And he said, .I am going to my Lord. He will show me the way
37:100 O my Lord, bless me with a righteous son
37:101 So, We gave him the good news of a forbearing boy
37:102 Thereafter, when he (the boy) reached an age in which he could work with him, he (Ibrahim) said, .O my little son, I have seen in a dream that I am slaughtering you, so consider, what is your opinion?. He said, .O my dear father, do what you have been ordered to do. You will find me, insha‘allah , (if Allah wills) one of those who endure patiently
37:103 So, (it was a great episode) when both of them submitted themselves (to Allah‘s will), and he laid him on his forehead (to slaughter him)
37:104 and then We called out to him, .O Ibrahim
37:105 you did make the dream come true. This is how We reward those who are good in their deeds
37:106 This was indeed a trial that clearly demonstrated (their obedience)
37:107 And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice
37:108 and We left for him (a word of praise) among the later people
37:109 (that is,) .Salam be on Ibrahim
37:110 This is how We reward those who are good in their deeds
37:111 Surely, he is among Our believing servants
37:112 And We gave him the good news of IsHaq (Isaac), a prophet from among the righteous
37:113 And We did bless him, and IsHaq. And among the progeny of both of them, some are good and some are utterly unjust to their own selves
37:114 Certainly We bestowed favors upon Musa and Harun
37:115 and We delivered them and their people from the great agony
37:116 and We helped them, so they became victors
37:117 and We gave them the clear book
37:118 and guided them to the straight path
37:119 And We left for them (a word of praise) among the later people
37:120 (that is,) Salam be on Musa and Harun
37:121 This is how We reward those who are good in their deeds
37:122 Surely, both of them were among Our believing servants
37:123 And surely, Ilyas is one of the messengers
37:124 (Remember) when he said to his people: .Do you not fear Allah
37:125 Do you invoke Ba‘l, and ignore the Best of the creators
37:126 that is, Allah who is your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers?
37:127 Then they rejected him. Therefore, they will be arraigned
37:128 except Allah‘s chosen servants
37:129 And We left for him (a word of praise) among the later people
37:130 (that is,) .Salam on Ilyasin (Ilyas)
37:131 This is how We reward those who are good in their deeds
37:132 Surely, he was from among Our believing servants
37:133 And surely, LuT is one of the messengers
37:134 (Remember) when We saved him and his family, all of them
37:135 except an old woman among those remaining behind
37:136 After that, We destroyed other
37:137 and you do pass by them at daybrea
37:138 and by nightfall. Would you still not understand
37:139 And surely, Yunus (Jonah) is from among the messengers
37:140 (Remember) when he ran away towards the boat that was already loaded
37:141 Then he participated in drawing lots (to offload one of the passengers) and was the one who was defeated
37:142 Then the fish swallowed him while he was reproaching his own self
37:143 Had he not been of those who proclaim Allah‘s purity
37:144 he would have definitely lived in its belly till the day when the dead will be raised
37:145 Then We cast him ashore in the open while he was ill
37:146 and We caused a tree of ourds to grow over him
37:147 And We had sent him (as messenger) to one hundred thousand, or more
37:148 So, they believed, then, We let them enjoy for a time
37:149 So ask them, .Does your Lord have daughters while they have sons?
37:150 Or, had We created angels as females while they were witnessing
37:151 Beware! They are the ones who, by way of a lie of theirs, (have the audacity to) say
37:152 .Allah has children. - and they are absolute liars
37:153 Is it that Allah has chosen daughters (for Himself) instead of sons
37:154 What is the matter with you? How (arbitrarily) do you judge
37:155 Then, is it that you do not think about it
37:156 Or, is it that there is some open authority with you
37:157 Then bring your book, if you are truthful
37:158 And they have made up between Him (Allah) and the Jinns some kinship, while the Jinns already know that they are bound to be seized._
37:159 __Pure is Allah from what they describe_
37:160 except Allah‘s chosen servants
37:161 So, you and those whom you worship
37:162 none of you can make anyone turn away from Him (Allah)
37:163 except him who is to burn in Jahannam
37:164 And (the angels say,) .There is no one among us who does not have a known station
37:165 and We, surely We, are those who stand in row
37:166 and We, surely We, are those who proclaim Allah‘s purity
37:167 And they (the pagans) used to say
37:168 .Had there been a scripture with us like that of the former people
37:169 we would have certainly been Allah‘s chosen servants
37:170 Then (once the divine book came to them,) they disbelieved in it. So, very soon they will come to know
37:171 And Our Word has already come to pass in favor of Our servants, the messenger
37:172 (that) they are the ones who will be supported
37:173 and verily it is Our army (of chosen servants) that prevails
37:174 So, withdraw your attention from them for some time
37:175 But, watch them. They shall soon see (the reality)
37:176 Are they asking for Our punishment to come sooner
37:177 So, when it will descend in their courtyard, then, evil will be the morning of those warned
37:178 So, withdraw your attention from them for some time
37:179 and watch. They shall soon see (the reality)
37:180 Pure is your Lord, the Lord of all might and honor, from what they describ
37:181 and Salam be on the messenger
37:182 and praised is Allah, the Lord of all the worlds
