Ali Quli Qara'i rendition of Surah Those Who Set The Ranks, Drawn up in Ranks, The Rangers(as-Saffat)
37:1 By the [angels] ranged in ranks
37:2 by the ones who drive vigorously
37:3 by the ones who recite the reminder
37:4 indeed your God is certainly One
37:5 the Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them, and the Lord of the easts
37:6 Indeed We have adorned the lowest heaven with the finery of the stars
37:7 and to guard from any froward devil
37:8 They do not eavesdrop on the Supernal Elite but are shot at from every side
37:9 to drive them away, and for them there is a constant mortification
37:10 except him who snatches a snatch, whereat there pursues him a piercing flame
37:11 Ask them, is their creation more prodigious or [that of other creatures] that We have created? Indeed We created them from a viscous clay
37:12 Indeed you wonder, while they engage in ridicule
37:13 and [even] when admonished do not take admonition
37:14 and when they see a sign they make it an object of ridicule
37:15 and say, ‘This is nothing but plain magic!&rsquo
37:16 ‘What! When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we be resurrected
37:17 And our forefathers too?!&rsquo
37:18 Say, ‘Yes! And you will be utterly humble.&rsquo
37:19 It will be only a single shout and, behold, they will look on
37:20 and say, ‘Woe to us! This is the Day of Retribution!&rsquo
37:21 ‘This is the Day of Judgement that you used to deny!&rsquo
37:22 ‘Muster the wrongdoers and their mates and what they used to worshi
37:23 besides Allah, and show them the way to hell
37:24 [But first] stop them! For they must be questioned.&rsquo
37:25 ‘Why is it that you do not support one another [today]?&rsquo
37:26 Rather today they are [meek and] submissive
37:27 Some of them will turn to others, questioning each other
37:28 They will say, ‘Indeed you used to accost us peremptorily.&rsquo
37:29 They will answer, ‘Rather you [yourselves] had no faith
37:30 We had no authority over you. Rather you [yourselves] were a rebellious lot
37:31 So our Lord’s word became due against us that we shall indeed taste [the punishment]
37:32 So we perverted you, for we were perverse [ourselves].&rsquo
37:33 So that day they will share in the punishment
37:34 Indeed that is how We deal with the guilty
37:35 Indeed it was they who, when they were told, ‘There is no god except Allah,’ used to be disdainful
37:36 and [they would] say, ‘Shall we abandon our gods for a crazy poet?&rsquo
37:37 Rather he has brought [them] the truth, and confirmed the [earlier] apostles
37:38 Indeed you will taste the painful punishment
37:39 and you will be requited only for what you used to d
37:40 —[all] except Allah’s exclusive servants
37:41 For such there is a known provisio
37:42 —fruits—and they will be held in honour
37:43 in the gardens of bliss
37:44 [reclining] on couches, facing one another
37:45 served around with a cup from a clear fountain
37:46 snow-white, delicious to the drinkers
37:47 wherein there will be neither headache nor will it cause them stupefaction
37:48 and with them will be maidens of restrained glances with big [beautiful] eyes
37:49 as if they were hidden ostrich eggs
37:50 Some of them will turn to others, questioning each other
37:51 One of them will say, ‘Indeed I had a companio
37:52 who used to say, ‘‘Are you really among those who affir
37:53 [that] when we are dead and have become dust and bones, we shall indeed be brought to retribution?’’ &rsquo
37:54 He will say, ‘Will you have a look?&rsquo
37:55 Then he will take a look and sight him in the middle of hell
37:56 He will say, ‘By Allah, you had almost ruined me
37:57 And had it not been for my Lord’s blessing, I too would have been among the arraigned!&rsquo
37:58 ‘Is it [true] that we shall not die [anymore]
37:59 aside from our first death, and that we shall not be punished
37:60 This is indeed the great success
37:61 Let all the workers work for the like of this!&rsquo
37:62 Is this a better hospitality, or the Zaqqum tree
37:63 Indeed We have made it a punishment for the wrongdoers
37:64 Indeed it is a tree that emerges from the depths of hell
37:65 Its spathes are as if they were devils’ heads
37:66 Indeed they will eat from it and gorge with it their bellies
37:67 Indeed, on top of that they will take a solution of scalding water
37:68 Then indeed their retreat will be toward hell
37:69 Indeed they had found their fathers astray
37:70 yet they press on in their footsteps
37:71 Certainly most of the ancients went astray before them
37:72 and certainly We had sent warners among them
37:73 So observe how was the fate of those who were warne
37:74 —[all] except Allah’s exclusive servants
37:75 Certainly Noah called out to Us, and how well We responded
37:76 We delivered him and his family from the great agony
37:77 and made his descendants the survivors
37:78 and left for him a good name among posterity
37:79 ‘Peace to Noah, throughout the nations!&rsquo
37:80 Thus indeed do We reward the virtuous
37:81 He is indeed one of Our faithful servants
37:82 Then We drowned the others
37:83 Indeed Abraham was among his followers
37:84 when he came to his Lord with a sound heart
37:85 when he said to his father and his people, ‘What is it that you are worshiping
37:86 Is it a lie, gods other than Allah, that you desire
37:87 Then what is your idea about the Lord of all the worlds?&rsquo
37:88 Then he made an observation of the star
37:89 and said, ‘Indeed I am sick!&rsquo
37:90 So they went away leaving him behind
37:91 Then he stole away to their gods and said, ‘Will you not eat
37:92 Why do you not speak?&rsquo
37:93 Then he attacked them, striking forcefully
37:94 They came running towards him
37:95 He said, ‘Do you worship what you have yourselves carved
37:96 when Allah has created you and whatever you make?&rsquo
37:97 They said, ‘Build a structure for him and cast him into a huge fire.&rsquo
37:98 So they sought to outwit him, but We made them the lowermost
37:99 He said, ‘Indeed I am going toward my Lord, who will guide me.&rsquo
37:100 ‘My Lord! Give me [an heir], one of the righteous.&rsquo
37:101 So We gave him the good news of a forbearing son
37:102 When he was old enough to assist in his endeavour, he said, ‘My son! I see in a dream that I am sacrificing you. See what you think.’ He said, ‘Father! Do whatever you have been commanded. If Allah wishes, you will find me to be patient.&rsquo
37:103 So when they had both submitted [to Allah’s will], and he had laid him down on his forehead
37:104 We called out to him, ‘O Abraham
37:105 You have indeed fulfilled the vision! Thus indeed do We reward the virtuous
37:106 This was indeed a manifest test.&rsquo
37:107 Then We ransomed him with a great sacrifice
37:108 and left for him a good name in posterity
37:109 ‘Peace be to Abraham!&rsquo
37:110 Thus do We reward the virtuous
37:111 He is indeed one of Our faithful servants
37:112 And We gave him the good news of [the birth of] Isaac, a prophet, one of the righteous
37:113 And We blessed him and Isaac. Among their descendants [some] are virtuous, and [some] who manifestly wrong themselves
37:114 Certainly We favoured Moses and Aaron
37:115 and delivered them and their people from the great agony
37:116 and We helped them so that they became the victors
37:117 We gave them the illuminating scriptur
37:118 and guided them to the straight path
37:119 and left for them a good name in posterity
37:120 ‘Peace be to Moses and Aaron!&rsquo
37:121 Thus indeed do We reward the virtuous
37:122 They are indeed among Our faithful servants
37:123 And indeed Ilyas was one of the apostles
37:124 when he said to his people, ‘Will you not be Godwary
37:125 Do you invoke Baal and abandon the best of creators
37:126 Allah, your Lord and Lord of your forefathers?&rsquo
37:127 But they impugned him. So they will indeed be arraigned [before Him]
37:128 —[all] except Allah’s exclusive servants
37:129 We left for him a good name in posterity
37:130 ‘Peace be to Ilyas!&rsquo
37:131 Thus indeed do We reward the virtuous
37:132 He is indeed one of Our faithful servants
37:133 And indeed Lot was one of the apostles
37:134 when We delivered him and all his family
37:135 except an old woman among those who remained behind
37:136 Then We destroyed [all] the others
37:137 And indeed you pass by them at daw
37:138 and at night. So do you not apply reason
37:139 And indeed Jonah was one of the apostles
37:140 when he absconded toward the laden ship
37:141 Then he drew lots with them and he was the one to be refuted
37:142 Then the fish swallowed him while he was blameworthy
37:143 And had he not been one of those who celebrate Allah’s glory
37:144 he would have surely remained in its belly till the day they will be resurrected
37:145 Then We cast him on a bare shore, and he was sick
37:146 So We made a gourd plant grow above him
37:147 We sent him to a [community of] hundred thousand or more
37:148 and they believed [in him]. So We provided for them for a while
37:149 Ask them, are daughters to be for your Lord while sons are to be for them
37:150 Did We create the angels females while they were present
37:151 Look! It is indeed out of their mendacity that they say
37:152 ‘Allah has begotten,’ and they indeed speak a falsehood
37:153 Has he preferred daughters to sons
37:154 What is the matter with you? How do you judge
37:155 Will you not then take admonition
37:156 Do you have a manifest authority
37:157 Then produce your scripture, should you be truthful
37:158 And they have set up a kinship between Him and the jinn, while the jinn certainly know that they will indeed be presented [before Him]
37:159 Clear is Allah of whatever they allege [about Him]
37:160 —[all] except Allah’s exclusive servants
37:161 Indeed you and what you worshi
37:162 —you cannot mislead [anyone] about Him
37:163 except someone who is bound for hell
37:164 ‘There is none among us but has a known place
37:165 Indeed it is we who are the ranged ones
37:166 Indeed it is we who are those who celebrate Allah’s glory.&rsquo
37:167 Indeed they used to say
37:168 ‘Had we possessed a reminder from the ancients
37:169 we would surely have been Allah’s exclusive servants.&rsquo
37:170 But they disbelieved it [when it came to them]. Soon they will know
37:171 Certainly Our decree has gone beforehand in favour of Our servants, the apostles
37:172 that they will indeed receive [Allah’s] help
37:173 and indeed Our hosts will be the victors
37:174 So leave them alone for a while
37:175 and watch them; soon they will see [the truth of the matter]
37:176 Do they seek to hasten Our punishment
37:177 But when it descends in their courtyard it will be a dismal dawn for those who had been warned
37:178 So leave them alone for a while
37:179 and watch; soon they will see
37:180 Clear is your Lord, the Lord of Might, of whatever they allege [concerning Him]
37:181 Peace be to the apostles
37:182 All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all the worlds
