Abdul Hye rendition of Surah Those Who Set The Ranks, Drawn up in Ranks, The Rangers(as-Saffat)
37:1 By those (angels) arranged in rows,
37:2 by those (angels) who are strong in repelling (evil),
37:3 by those (angels) who bring the book (the Qur’an),
37:4 surely your one worthy of worship is indeed One (Allah),
37:5 the Lord of the heavens and the earth, and all that lies between them, and Lord of every point of the sun’s risings.
37:6 Surely! We have adorned the lower heaven with beautiful stars
37:7 and has guarded against all rebellious devils.
37:8 They cannot even listen to the higher group (angels) for they are pelted from every side,
37:9 repulsed and they are under a constant punishment.
37:10 Except such as snatch away something by stealing and they are pursued by a flaming fire of piercing brightness.
37:11 Ask them (polytheists, O Muhammad): “Are they stronger as creation, or those whom We have created?” Surely, We created them of sticky clay.
37:12 Nay, you (Muhammad) wonder while they mock (at you and the Qur’an).
37:13 When they are reminded, they don’t pay attention,
37:14 and when they see a Verse (from Allah), they mock at it
37:15 and say: “This is nothing but clear magic!
37:16 When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then surely be resurrected?
37:17 Also our forefathers of old times?”
37:18 Say (O Muhammad): “Yes and you shall then be humiliated.”
37:19 It will be only a single shout and they will be staring!
37:20 They will say: “Woe to us! This is the Day of recompense!”
37:21 (It will be said): “This is the Day of judgment which you used to deny.”
37:22 (It will be said to the angels): “Assemble those who did wrong, together with their companions whom they used to worship
37:23 besides Allah, and lead them to the way of flaming fire (hell).”
37:24 (When they will be gathered, Allah will say): “Stop them, surely they are to be questioned:
37:25 What is the matter with you? Why don’t you help one another (as you used to do in the world)?”
37:26 Nay, but that Day they shall surrender.
37:27 Some of them will face others to question one another.
37:28 They will say (to their leaders): “Surely, you used to come to us from the right (with authority to beautify every evil, enjoin polytheism, and stop us from the truth).”
37:29 They will reply: “Nay, you were not believers.
37:30 We had no authority over you. Nay! You were transgressing people,
37:31 now the Word of our Lord has become justified against us, and indeed we shall taste (the punishment).
37:32 So we led you astray because we were ourselves astray.”
37:33 Then surely on that Day, they will share in the punishment.
37:34 Certainly, that is how We shall deal with sinners
37:35 surely, when it was said to them: “There is no one worthy of worship but Allah,” they used to puff themselves up with pride
37:36 and say: “Are we going to abandon our one worthy of worship for the sake of a mad poet?”
37:37 Nay! He (Muhammad) has come with the truth and he has confirmed the (previous) Messengers.
37:38 (It will be said): “Surely, you (polytheists) are going to taste the painful punishment;
37:39 and you will be requited nothing except for what you had done (evil deeds).”
37:40 Except the chosen (faithful) devotees of Allah,
37:41 those for them will have known provision:
37:42 fruits, and they shall be honored
37:43 in the gardens of delight (Paradise),
37:44 on the thrones facing one another,
37:45 served around (them) with a cup of pure wine,
37:46 crystal-white, delicious to the drinkers.
37:47 Neither they will have any kind of hurt, headache or sin in that, nor will they suffer intoxication from that.
37:48 With them will be chaste females restraining their glances (for husbands only) with wide and beautiful eyes
37:49 as if they were preserved eggs.
37:50 Some of them will turn to others, questioning each others.
37:51 One of them will say: “Surely, I had a companion for me (in the world),
37:52 who used to say: ‘Are you among those who believe (in Resurrection after death)?
37:53 When we die and become dust and bones, shall we indeed (be raised up) to receive reward or punishment (according to deeds)?”’
37:54 It will be said (to him): “Will you look down (to see the friend)?”
37:55 So the person looked down and saw friend in the midst of the fire.
37:56 The person said: “By Allah! You have nearly ruined me.
37:57 Had it not been for the Grace of my Lord, I would certainly have been among those brought forth (to hell).
37:58 (The believer in the heaven will say): “Are we then not to die (any more)
37:59 after our first death and we shall not be punished?”
37:60 Truly, this is the supreme success!
37:61 For such an end, let everyone strive who wishes to strive.
37:62 Is this (Paradise) a better entertainment or the tree of the Zaqqum (a horrible tree in hell)?
37:63 Truly, We have made it a trail for the wrongdoers.
37:64 Surely, it is a tree that grows in the bottom of hellfire,
37:65 the shoots of its fruit-stalks are like the heads of devils,
37:66 so truly, they will eat from it and fill their bellies from it.
37:67 Then surely, on top of that, they will be given a mixture of boiling water (to drink).
37:68 Then surely, their return is to the flaming fire of hell.
37:69 In fact, they found their fathers on the wrong way,
37:70 so they are too haste to follow their footsteps!
37:71 and indeed most of the ancient people went astray before them
37:72 and indeed We had sent warners (Messengers) among them.
37:73 Then see how was the end of those who were warned (all perished),
37:74 except the chosen (faithful) devotees of Allah.
37:75 And indeed Noah prayed to Us, and indeed We are the Best to answer (the prayer).
37:76 And We rescued him and his family from the great distress (drowning),
37:77 and made his progeny to be the only survivors,
37:78 and left for him (a good name) among generations to come in later times.
37:79 Peace be upon Noah (from Us) among the (people of) worlds!
37:80 Surely, thus We reward the righteous people.
37:81 Surely, he (Noah) was one of Our believing devotees.
37:82 Then We drowned the others (disbelievers).
37:83 Surely, among those who followed his (Noah’s) way was Abraham,
37:84 when he came to his Lord with a pure heart.
37:85 When he said to his father and to his people: “What is it you worship?
37:86 Is it a falsehood worthy of worship other than Allah that you seek?
37:87 Then what do you think about the Lord of the worlds?
37:88 Then he looked a glance at the stars,
37:89 and said: “Surely, I am sick (he did this trick to stay in their temple of idols to destroy them and not to accompany them to the pagan’s feast).”
37:90 So they turned away from him, and departed.
37:91 Then he turned to their idols and said: “Why don’t you eat (from food offered)?
37:92 What is the matter with you that you don’t speak?”
37:93 Then he turned upon them, striking with his right hand.
37:94 They (idol worshippers) came running towards him.
37:95 He said: ”Do you worship what you carve,
37:96 while Allah has created you and what you have make?”
37:97 They said: “Build for him a building (like a furnace) and throw him into the blazing fire!”
37:98 So they plotted against him, but We made them the lowest (humiliated).
37:99 He said (after his rescue from fire): “Surely, I am going to my Lord. He will guide me
37:100 My Lord! Grant me (offspring) from the righteous.”
37:101 So We gave him the glad tidings of a gentle boy.
37:102 When he (son) was old enough to walk with him, he said: “O my son! Surely, I have seen in the sleep (dream) that I am slaughtering you (sacrifice to Allah), so what do you think!” He said: “O my father! Do what you are commanded (by Allah), you shall find me of the patient.
37:103 Then, when they had both submitted themselves (to Allah), and he laid his son prostrate on his forehead (for sacrifice);
37:104 and Allah called out to him: “O Abraham!
37:105 Surely, you have fulfilled the dream!” Surely! Thus We reward the righteous people.
37:106 Surely, that was indeed a clear trial.
37:107 We ransomed his son for a great sacrifice
37:108 and We left for him (good name) among the later generations (to come).
37:109 Peace be upon Abraham!
37:110 Thus indeed We reward the righteous people.
37:111 Surely, he was one of Our believing devotees.
37:112 And We gave him the glad tidings of (his son) Isaac, a prophet from the righteous.
37:113 We blessed him and Isaac. Of their progeny, there are some who do right, and some plainly wrong themselves.
37:114 Indeed We gave Our Grace to Moses and Aaron.
37:115 We saved them and their people from the great distress;
37:116 and helped them, so they became victorious
37:117 We gave them the clear Scripture (Torah),
37:118 and guided them to the Right Way.
37:119 We left for them (a good name) among later generations (to come).
37:120 Peace be upon Moses and Aaron!
37:121 Surely, thus We do reward the righteous people.
37:122 Surely! They were of Our believing devotees.
37:123 Surely, Elias was one of the Messengers.
37:124 When he said to his people: “Will you not fear (Allah)?
37:125 Will you call upon Bal (idol) and forsake the best of creators,
37:126 Allah, your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers?”
37:127 But they denied him (Elias), so they will certainly be brought forth (to the punishment)
37:128 except the chosen (faithful) devotees of Allah.
37:129 We left for him (a good name) among later generations (to come).
37:130 Peace be upon Elias!
37:131 Surely, thus We reward the righteous people.
37:132 Surely, he was one of Our believing devotees.
37:133 Surely, Lot was one of the Messengers.
37:134 When We saved him and all his family,
37:135 except an old woman (who was) among those who remained behind
37:136 then We destroyed the rest (the towns of Sodom at the Dead Sea in Jordan).
37:137 Surely, you pass by them in the morning,
37:138 and at night; will you not then reflect (think)?
37:139 Surely, Jonah was one of the Messengers.
37:140 When he ran to the laden ship,
37:141 he (agreed to) cast lots, and he was among the losers.
37:142 Then a (big) fish swallowed him while he had done an act worthy of blame.
37:143 Had it not been that he was of those who glorify (Allah),
37:144 he would have indeed remained in its belly (the fish) till the Day of Resurrection.
37:145 Then We cast him out on the naked shore while he was sick
37:146 and We caused a plant of gourd (squash) to grow over him.
37:147 Then We had sent him to a nation of 100,000 people or even more.
37:148 They believed; so We gave them enjoyment for a while.
37:149 Now ask them (disbelievers, O Muhammad): (Does it make sense that) your Lord should have only daughters while they choose to have sons
37:150 Or did We create the angels as females while they were witnesses
37:151 Surely, they invent a lie when they say:
37:152 “Allah has begotten (children). Surely, they are liars!”
37:153 Has He chosen daughters (rather than) sons?
37:154 What is the matter with you? How do you decide?
37:155 Will you not then remember?
37:156 Or is there any plain authority for you?
37:157 Then bring your book if you are truthful!
37:158 They have invented a kinship between Him and the jinns, but indeed the jinns know quite well that they will be brought for account (before Allah)
37:159 Glory be to Allah! (He is free) from what they attribute to Him
37:160 except the chosen (faithful) devotees of Allah.
37:161 So, neither you nor those whom you worship (idols)
37:162 can lead (anyone) astray
37:163 except those who are destined to burn in hell!
37:164 (The angels say): “There is one known place for us.
37:165 Surely, we stand in rows (for prayers);
37:166 surely, we are those who glorify (Allah).”
37:167 Indeed they (disbelievers) used to say:
37:168 “If we had a reminder like the people of old received (before the coming of Muhammad)
37:169 we would have indeed been the chosen devotees of Allah!”
37:170 But (since the Qur’an has come) they disbelieve in it (the Qur’an), and they will come to know (the consequence soon)!
37:171 Surely, Our Word has gone forth for Our devotees, the Messengers,
37:172 that surely they would be victorious
37:173 and verily, Our hosts (soldiers) will be victorious.
37:174 So turn away (O Muhammad) from them for a while,
37:175 and watch them, and they shall see (your victory)!
37:176 Do they seek to hasten on Our Punishment?
37:177 Then, when it descends into their court-yard (near them), then evil will be the morning for those who had been warned!
37:178 So turn (O Muhammad) away from them for a while,
37:179 and watch (their downfall) and they shall see (your victory)!
37:180 Glory be to your Lord, the Lord of honor and power, (He is free) from what they attribute to Him!
37:181 Peace be upon the Messengers
37:182 and all the praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds.
