Ahmed Raza Khan (Barelvi) rendition of Surah Those Who Set The Ranks, Drawn up in Ranks, The Rangers(as-Saffat)
37:1 By those Who range them selves in ranks properly.
37:2 Then by those who drive by chiding.
37:3 Then by those groups that recites Quran.
37:4 Undoubtedly, your God is necessarily One.
37:5 The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is in between them and the Lord of the casts.
37:6 And undoubtedly, We adorned the lower heaven with the adornment of the stars.
37:7 And a safeguard from every contumacious devil (Satan).
37:8 They can not give ear towards heavenly world and they are pelted from every side.
37:9 To drive them away and for them is the perpetual torment.
37:10 But he who carries away by swooping once or twice then are at once followed by a bright burning flame.
37:11 Therefore ask them, is their creation stronger or Our other creations heavens and angels etc? Undoubtedly We have made them of sticking clay.
37:12 But you do wonder and they ridicule it.
37:13 And when they are made to understand, they understand not.
37:14 And when they see any sign, they ridicule it.
37:15 And they say, 'this is not but an open magic'.
37:16 What! when we become dust and bones after death, shall we necessarily be raised?
37:17 And our former fore-fathers too?
37:18 Say you, 'yes, and you shall be disgraced ones'.
37:19 Then it will be only a single horrible shout, henceforth they will begin to see.
37:20 And they will say, 'woe, alas to us it will be said to them' 'This is the Day of Requital.'
37:21 This is the Day of judgement, which you used to belie.
37:22 Drive and bring together the oppressors and their companions, and what they used to worship.
37:23 Beside Allah, and drive them to the path of the Fire.
37:24 And stop them, they are to be questioned.
37:25 What happened to you, why you do not help each other?
37:26 Nay, today they have surrendered themselves.
37:27 And of them, one faced the other mutually questioning.
37:28 They said, 'you used to approach us for misleading from right side.
37:29 They will reply, 'you yourselves were not believing.
37:30 And We had no control over you, but rather you were a people contumacious.
37:31 Therefore, the sentence of our Lord has been proved against us that we are necessarily to taste.
37:32 And we misled you for we ourselves had gone astray.
37:33 Therefore that day they are all sharers in the torment.
37:34 Thus, We do with the culprits.
37:35 Undoubtedly, when it was said to them, 'None is to be worshipped beside Allah', they then swelled with pride.
37:36 And they used to say, shall we indeed leave our gods, because of the saying of a mad poet?
37:37 No indeed, rather he has brought the truth and he has confirmed the Messengers.
37:38 Undoubtedly, you are to taste a painful agony.
37:39 And you shall not be recompensed but of your own doings.
37:40 But those who are the chosen bond men of Allah.
37:41 For them is that provision which is in Our knowledge.
37:42 Fruits, and they shall be honored.
37:43 In the Gardens of comfort.
37:44 They will be on thrones face to face.
37:45 There will be a round of a flowing drink cup before their eyes.
37:46 White coloured, delicious to those who drink.
37:47 Wherein neither there is intoxication and nor their heads will become giddy wherewith.
37:48 And they have those, who will not look towards any one else other than their husbands, having large eyes.
37:49 As they are eggs preserved.
37:50 Then of them one faced the other questioning.
37:51 A speaker from among them said, 'I had a mate of mine.'
37:52 'Who used to say, do you take it to be true'?
37:53 What! when we are rotten and will become dust and bones, shall we then be requited?
37:54 He will say, 'will you peep and see?'
37:55 Then he peeped and saw him in the midst of Flaming fire.
37:56 He said, By God, it was near that, you would cause me to perish.'
37:57 And had it not been for the favour of my Lord, I would surely have been seized and presented'.
37:58 Is it not then we are to die?
37:59 But our first death and that we are not to be punished.
37:60 No doubt, this is the supreme triumph.
37:61 Therefore, let the workers work the like of this.
37:62 Is this entertainment better or the tree of Zaqqum? (Bearing bitter, un-tasty and sour fruits).
37:63 Undoubtedly, We have made it a test for the unjust.
37:64 Verily, it is a tree, which grows in the bottom of Hell.
37:65 Its spikes are like the heads of monsters.
37:66 And verily they shall eat of it, And fill their bellies with it.
37:67 Then undoubtedly, for them there is in addition to it a mixture of boiling water.
37:68 Then their return is necessary towards a Flaming Fire.
37:69 Undoubtedly, they found their fathers erring.
37:70 So they are rushing in their footsteps.
37:71 And undoubtedly, most of the ancient went astray before them.
37:72 And undoubtedly, We sent warners in them.
37:73 Then look as to how was the end of those who were warned.
37:74 Save the chosen devotees of Allah.
37:75 And undoubtedly, Nuh called to Us, and what excellent respondent are, We.
37:76 And We delivered him and his family from the great distress.
37:77 And We made his offspring the only survivors.
37:78 And We left for him a good name among later generations.
37:79 Peace be upon Nuh among the people of the world.
37:80 Undoubtedly, thus We recompense the righteous.
37:81 Undoubtedly, he is among Our most dignified fully believing devotees.
37:82 Then We drowned the others.
37:83 And undoubtedly, Ibrahim belongs to his same group.
37:84 When he came to his Lord with a pure heart.
37:85 When he said to his father and his people, 'what do you worship'?
37:86 Do you desire false gods beside Allah?
37:87 What do you think about the Lord of the worlds?
37:88 Then he cast a glance at the stars.
37:89 Then he said, 'I am about to be sick'.
37:90 Then they turned back from him.
37:91 Then he walked towards their gods secretly and said, 'do you not eat'?
37:92 What happened to you that you speak not?
37:93 Then avoiding sight of the people, he began to strike them with his right hand.
37:94 Then the infidels rushed to wards him.
37:95 He said, 'do you worship What your hand carved out.'
37:96 And Allah has created you and what you make.
37:97 They said, 'build for him a building, then cast him in the flaming fire.
37:98 Then they intended to design a plan against him, but We brought them low.
37:99 And he said, 'I am to go to my Lord' now He shall guide me.
37:100 'My Lord, bestow me a righteous son.'
37:101 Then We gave him a glad tiding of a prudent son.
37:102 Then when he became able to work with him, he said, 'O my son, I have dreamt that I am slaughtering you, now look you, what is your opinion'. He said, 'O my father, do as you are commanded, Allah willing, you will find me patient.'
37:103 Then when they both submitted to My command and the father laid down his son on forehead.
37:104 We called to him, O Ibrahim,
37:105 Undoubtedly, you have fulfilled the vision; thus, We recompense the righteous.
37:106 No doubt, it was a bright test.
37:107 And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice.
37:108 And We left a good name for him in later generations.
37:109 Peace be upon Ibrahim.
37:110 And thus We recompense the righteous.
37:111 Undoubtedly, He is among Our most dignified fully believing devotees.
37:112 And We gave him the glad tidings of Ishaque, a Prophet the Communicator of unseen, one of the deserving men of our proximity.
37:113 And We blessed him and Ishaque. And among their progeny some are good doers, and are some who clearly wrong themselves.
37:114 And undoubtedly, We bestowed favours on Musa and Haroon.
37:115 And We delivered them and their people from the great distress.
37:116 And We helped them, so they became dominant.
37:117 And We bestowed to both a luminous Book.
37:118 And We showed them straight path.
37:119 And left their good names in later generations.
37:120 Peace be upon Musa and Maroon.
37:121 Undoubtedly, thus We recompense the righteous.
37:122 Undoubtedly, they are among Our most dignified Fully believing devotees.
37:123 And undoubtedly, Elyas is among Messengers.
37:124 When he said to his people 'do you not fear'?
37:125 Do you worship Baal and leave the Best Creator?
37:126 Allah, Who is your Lord and the Lord of your forefather`?
37:127 Then-he belied him, so necessity, they will come accosted.
37:128 But the chosen devotees of Allah.
37:129 And We left his good name in later generation.
37:130 Peace be upon Elyas.
37:131 Undoubtedly, thus We recompense the righteous.
37:132 Verily, he is among Our most dignified fully believing devotees.
37:133 And verily Lut is among Our Messengers.
37:134 When We delivered him and his all family members.
37:135 But an old woman who was among those who remained behind.
37:136 Then We destroyed the others.
37:137 And undoubtedly, you pass by them in the morning
37:138 And at night. Do you then have no wisdom?
37:139 And verily, Yunus is among Messengers.
37:140 When he went away towards a laden boat.
37:141 And cast lots and was of the pushed ones.
37:142 Then the fish swallowed him and he was blaming himself.
37:143 And had he not been of those who glorify Allah.
37:144 He would have necessarily remained in its belly until the day when the people shall be raised.
37:145 Then We cast him on a bare place and he was sick.
37:146 And We caused to grow over him a tree of gourd.
37:147 And We sent him towards a hundred thousand rather more.
37:148 And they believed, then We allowed them to enjoy for a time.
37:149 Now ask them 'are the daughters for your Lord and for them sons?'
37:150 Or did We create the angels females, while they were present?
37:151 Do you hear? Undoubtedly they say of their own calumny.
37:152 Allah has begotten', and undoubtedly, they are necessarily liars.
37:153 Has He chosen daughters leaving sons?
37:154 What is the matter with you? How you order?
37:155 Do you then not reflect?
37:156 Or have you any clear authority?
