Shakir 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 rank
37:2 Then those who drive away with reproof
37:3 Then those who recite, being mindful
37:4 Most surely your Allah is One
37:5 The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, and Lord of the easts
37:6 Surely We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment, the stars
37:7 And (there is) a safeguard against every rebellious Shaitan
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 off but once, 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 firm clay
37:12 Nay! you wonder while they mock
37:13 And when they are reminded, they mind 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 yore
37:18 Say: Aye! and you shall be abject
37:19 So it shall only be a single cry, when lo! they shall see
37:20 And they shall say: O woe to us! this is the day of requital
37:21 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 shall be questioned
37:25 What is the matter with 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 side
37:29 They shall say: Nay, you (yourselves) were not believers
37:30 And we had no authority over you, but you were an inordinate people
37:31 So the sentence of our Lord has come to pass against us: (now) we shall surely taste
37:32 So we led you astray, for we ourselves were 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 proudly when it was said to them: There is no god but Allah
37:36 And to say: 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 messengers
37:38 Most surely you will taste the painful punishment
37:39 And you shall not be rewarded except (for) what you did
37:40 Save the servants of Allah, the purified ones
37:41 For them is a known sustenance
37:42 Fruits, and they shall be highly honored
37:43 In gardens of pleasure
37:44 On thrones, facing each other
37:45 A bowl shall be made to go round them from water running out of springs
37:46 White, delicious to those who drink
37:47 There shall be no trouble in it, nor shall they be exhausted therewith
37:48 And with them shall be those who restrain the eyes, having beautiful eyes
37:49 As if they were eggs carefully protected
37:50 Then shall some of them advance to others, questioning each other
37:51 A speaker from among them shall say: Surely I had a comrade of mine
37:52 Who said: What! are you indeed of those who accept (the truth)
37:53 What! when we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then be certainly brought to judgment
37:54 He shall say: Will you look on
37:55 Then he looked down and saw him in the midst of hell
37:56 He shall say: By Allah! you had almost caused me to perish
37:57 And had it not been for the favor of my Lord, I would certainly have been among those brought up
37:58 Is it then that we are not going to die
37:59 Except our previous death? And we shall not be chastised
37:60 Most surely this is the mighty 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
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 the hell
37:65 Its produce is as it were the heads of the serpents
37:66 Then most surely they shall eat of it and fill (their) bellies with it
37:67 Then most surely they shall have after it to drink of a mixture prepared in boiling water
37:68 Then most surely their return shall be to hell
37:69 Surely they found their fathers going astray
37:70 So in their footsteps they are being hastened 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 how was the end of those warned
37:74 Except the servants of Allah, the purified ones
37:75 And Nuh did certainly call upon Us, and most excellent answerer 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 Peace and salutation to Nuh 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 We drowned the other
37:83 And most surely Ibrahim followed his way
37:84 When he came to his Lord with a free heart
37:85 When he said to his father and his people: What is it that you worship
37:86 A lie-- gods besides Allah-- do 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: Surely I am sick (of your worshipping these)
37:90 So they went away from him, turning back
37:91 Then he turned aside 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 turned against them secretly, smiting them with the right hand
37:94 So they (people) advanced towards him, hastening
37:95 Said he: What! do you worship what you hew out
37:96 And 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 desired a war against him, but We brought them low
37:99 And he said: Surely I fly to my lord; He will guide me
37:100 My Lord! grant me of the doers of good deeds
37:101 So We gave him the good news of a boy, possessing forbearance
37:102 And when he attained to working with him, he said: O my son! surely I have seen in a dream that I should sacrifice you; consider then what you see. He said: O my father! do what you are commanded; if Allah please, you will find me of the patient ones
37:103 So when they both submitted and he threw him down upon his forehead
37:104 And We called out to him saying: O Ibrahim
37:105 You have indeed shown the truth of 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 Feat sacrifice
37:108 And We perpetuated (praise) to him among the later generations
37:109 Peace be on Ibrahim
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 Ishaq, a prophet among the good ones
37:113 And We showered Our blessings on him and on Ishaq; and of their offspring are the doers of good, and (also) those who are clearly unjust to their own souls
37:114 And certainly We conferred a favor on Musa and Haroun
37:115 And We delivered them both and their people from the mighty distress
37:116 And We helped them, so they were the vanquishers
37:117 And We gave them both the Book that made (things) clear
37:118 And We guided them both on the right way
37:119 And We perpetuated (praise) to them among the later generations
37:120 Peace be on Musa and Haroun
37:121 Even thus do We reward the doers of good
37:122 Surely they were both of Our believing servants
37:123 And Ilyas was most surely of the messengers
37:124 When he said to his people: Do you not guard (against evil)
37:125 What! do you call upon Ba'l and forsake the best of the creators
37:126 Allah, your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of yore
37:127 But they called him a liar, therefore they shall most surely be brought up
37:128 But not the servants of Allah, the purified ones
37:129 And We perpetuated to him (praise) among the later generations
37:130 Peace be on Ilyas
37:131 Even thus do We reward the doers of good
37:132 Surely he was one of Our believing servants
37:133 And Lut was most surely of the messengers
37:134 When We delivered him and his followers, all-
37:135 Except an old woman (who was) amongst those who tarried
37:136 Then We destroyed the others
37:137 And most surely you pass by them in the morning
37:138 And at night; do you not then understand
37:139 And Yunus was most surely of the messengers
37:140 When he ran away to a ship completely laden
37:141 So he shared (with them), but was of those who are cast off
37:142 So the fish swallowed him while he did that for which he blamed himsel
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 vacant surface of the earth while he was sick
37:146 And We caused to grow up for him a gourdplant
37:147 And We sent him to a hundred thousand, rather they exceeded
37:148 And they believed, so We gave them provision till a time
37:149 Then ask them whether your Lord has daughters and they have sons
37:150 Or did We create the angels females while they were witnesses
37:151 Now surely it is of their own lie 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 is the matter with you, how is it that you judge
37:155 Will you not then mind
37:156 Or have you a clear authority
37:157 Then bring your book, 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 up
37:159 Glory be to Allah (for freedom) from what they describe
37:160 But not so the servants of Allah, the purified ones
37:161 So surely you and what you worship
37:162 Not against Him can you cause (any) to fall into trial
37:163 Save him who will go to hell
37:164 And there is none of us but has an assigned place
37:165 And most surely we are they who draw themselves out in ranks
37:166 And we are most surely they who declare the glory (of Allah)
37:167 And surely they used to say
37:168 Had we a reminder from those of yore
37:169 We would certainly have been the servants of Allah-- the purified ones
37:170 But (now) they disbelieve in it, so they will come to know
37:171 And certainly Our word has already gone forth in respect of Our servants, the messengers
37:172 Most surely they shall be the assisted one
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 (then) see them, so they too shall see
37:176 What! would they then hasten on Our chastisement
37:177 But when it shall descend in their court, evil shall then be the morning of the warned ones
37:178 And turn away from them till a tim
37:179 And (then) see, for they too shall see
37:180 Glory be to your Lord, the Lord of Honor, above what they describe
37:181 And peace be on the messengers
37:182 And all praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds
