Hasan Al-Fatih Qaribullah rendition of Surah Those Who Set The Ranks, Drawn up in Ranks, The Rangers(as-Saffat)
37:1 By the aligners (angels) aligning.
37:2 and the drivers driving,
37:3 and those who recite the Remembrance
37:4 surely, your God is One,
37:5 the Lord of the heavens and the earth and of all that is between them; the Lord of the Easts.
37:6 We have adorned the lower heaven with the adornment of the planets,
37:7 a protection against every rebel satan;
37:8 so they cannot listen to the High Assembly, for they are pelted from every side.
37:9 They are rejected and theirs is an everlasting punishment;
37:10 except such as snatches a fragment, and he is pursued by a piercing flame.
37:11 So ask them, are they stronger in constitution, or those whom We have created. We have created them of sticky clay.
37:12 No, you marvel, while they scoff.
37:13 When they are reminded, they do not remember.
37:14 When they are shown a sign, they scoff at it
37:15 and say: 'This is nothing but clear sorcery! '
37:16 What, when we are dead and become dust and bones, shall we be resurrected.
37:17 What, and our forefathers, the ancients! '
37:18 Say: 'Yes, but worthless. '
37:19 It will be but one Shout, then see, they are watching
37:20 and they will say: 'Woe for us. This is the Day of Recompense. '
37:21 This is the Day of Decision which you belied.
37:22 Gather together the evildoers, their wives, and that they were worshipping,
37:23 other than Allah, and guide them to the Path of Hell!
37:24 And halt them so that they may be questioned.
37:25 'Why do you not help one another?
37:26 No, today they will resign themselves in submission,
37:27 and approach each other with questions,
37:28 saying: 'You used to come to us from the right hand. '
37:29 But they reply: 'Rather, you were not believers.
37:30 We had no authority over you, but you were an insolent nation.
37:31 The statement of Our Lord is realized against us, and we are tasting it,
37:32 we perverted you, indeed, we were perverts. '
37:33 Therefore, on that Day they will all share Our punishment.
37:34 As such We shall deal with the evildoers.
37:35 For when it was said to them: 'There is no god except Allah, ' they were always proud
37:36 and said: 'Are we to renounce our gods for the sake of a mad poet? '
37:37 No, indeed, he has brought the truth, and confirmed the Messengers.
37:38 You shall certainly taste the painful punishment:
37:39 but you shall not be recompensed except for what you were doing.
37:40 But for the sincere worshipers of Allah,
37:41 there is waiting for them a known provision;
37:42 fruits. And they are receivers of generosity
37:43 in the Gardens of Delight,
37:44 sitting face to face upon couches,
37:45 a goblet from a spring shall be passed round to them
37:46 white, a delight to the drinkers,
37:47 there is neither sickness in it, nor intoxication.
37:48 And with them will be maidens (houris) who restrain their wide glances
37:49 as if they were hidden pearls.
37:50 They will go to one another asking each other questions.
37:51 One of them will say: 'I had a companion
37:52 who would say: "Are you among the believers (of the resurrection)?
37:53 When we are dead and turned to dust and bones, shall we be recompensed?"
37:54 And he will reply: 'Are you looking down (into Hell)? '
37:55 Then, he will look and see him in the midst of Hell.
37:56 'By Allah, ' he will say, 'you almost destroyed me!
37:57 But for the Favor of Allah I should have surely been among those who were arraigned (with you in Hell).
37:58 What then, shall we not die
37:59 except our first death, and shall we not be punished? '
37:60 Indeed, this is the mighty victory,
37:61 and for the like of this let the workers work.
37:62 Is this a better hospitality or the tree of AzZakkum!
37:63 We have made this (tree) a trial for the evildoers.
37:64 It is a tree that grows from the bottom of Hell;
37:65 its spathes are like the heads of satans
37:66 on it they shall feed, and with it they shall fill their bellies.
37:67 On top of it they shall have a brew of boiling water,
37:68 then their return is to Hell.
37:69 They found their fathers in error,
37:70 yet they run in their footsteps,
37:71 yet before them most of the ancients went astray,
37:72 though We had sent among them warners.
37:73 See then the end of those who were warned,
37:74 except the sincere worshipers of Allah.
37:75 Noah called to Us, and We are the Best to answer.
37:76 We saved him and his people from the great distress,
37:77 and We made his offspring the survivors.
37:78 And We let it remain upon him in the latter:
37:79 'Peace be upon Noah among all the worlds. '
37:80 As such We recompense the gooddoers,
37:81 he was one of Our believing worshipers.
37:82 Afterwards We drowned the others.
37:83 Of his party was Abraham.
37:84 (Remember when) he came to his Lord with a pure heart;
37:85 and when he said to his father and to his nation: 'What do you worship?
37:86 It is falsehood that you desire gods other than Allah!
37:87 What do you think of the Lord of the Worlds? '
37:88 He cast a glance at the stars
37:89 and said: 'Surely, I am sick (of what you worship)! '
37:90 But they turned their backs and went away from him.
37:91 Then he turned to their gods, and said: 'What do you eat?
37:92 What is the matter with you, that you do not speak? '
37:93 And he turned upon them striking them with the right hand.
37:94 Thereafter they (the people) came to him in haste.
37:95 He said: 'Do you worship what you, yourselves have carved
37:96 when it is Allah who created you and all that you do? '
37:97 They replied: 'Build for him a building and cast him into the fire. '
37:98 Their desire was to outwit him, but We made them to be the humiliated.
37:99 He said: 'I will go to my Lord; He will guide me.
37:100 My Lord, grant me a righteous (son). '
37:101 And We gave him the glad tidings of a very gentle son (Ishmael).
37:102 And when he reached the age of traveling with him, he said: 'My son, while I was sleeping I saw that I shall slaughter (sacrifice) you, tell me what is your opinion. ' He replied: 'Father, do as you are ordered (by Allah). Allah willing, you shall find me one of those who are steadfast. '
37:103 And when they had both submitted, and his son had laid down prostrate upon his forehead,
37:104 We called to him, saying: 'O Abraham,
37:105 you have confirmed your vision. ' As such We recompense the gooddoers.
37:106 That was indeed a clear trial.
37:107 So, We ransomed him with a mighty sacrifice,
37:108 and We let it (the beautiful praise) remain upon him in the latter (generations),
37:109 'Peace be upon Abraham! '
37:110 As such We recompense the gooddoers.
37:111 He was one of Our believing worshipers.
37:112 Then, We gave him the glad tidings of Isaac, a Prophet, one of the righteous,
37:113 and We blessed him and Isaac, and from their offspring are some gooddoers, and others who clearly wronged themselves.
37:114 We also favored Moses and Aaron
37:115 and We saved them with their nation from a great distress.
37:116 We helped them, and they became victorious,
37:117 and We gave them the Clear Book,
37:118 and guided them upon the Straight Path.
37:119 And We let it (the beautiful praise) remain upon on both of them in the latter (generations),
37:120 'Peace be upon Moses and Aaron! '
37:121 As such We recompense the gooddoers.
37:122 They were among Our believing worshipers.
37:123 And Elias (El Yaseen) was among the Messengers.
37:124 He asked his people: 'Do you not fear (Allah)?
37:125 Do you call on Ba'lan (the idol Baal) and abandon the Best Creator,
37:126 Allah is your Lord and the Lord of your fathers, the ancients. '
37:127 But they belied him, so they will be among the arraigned (in Hell),
37:128 except the sincere worshipers of Allah.
37:129 And We let it (the beautiful praise) remain upon him in the latter (generations),
37:130 'Peace be upon El Yaseen! '
37:131 As such We recompense the gooddoers.
37:132 He was among Our believing worshipers.
37:133 Lot, too, was among the Messengers.
37:134 We saved him and all his kinsmen,
37:135 except an old woman who lingered,
37:136 and We destroyed the others.
37:137 You pass by them in the morning
37:138 and at night, will you not understand?
37:139 Jonah, too, was one of the Messengers.
37:140 He ran away to the laden ship,
37:141 and cast lots, and he was among the losers (of the lots that were cast).
37:142 So the whale swallowed him, for he was blameworthy,
37:143 and had he not been among those who exalt (Allah),
37:144 he would have lingered in its belly till the Day they are resurrected.
37:145 But We cast him, upon the shore, and he was ill,
37:146 and We caused a pumpkin tree to grow over him.
37:147 Then We sent him to a hundred thousand or more,
37:148 and they believed, and We gave them enjoyment for awhile.
37:149 Now, ask them, has your Lord daughters, and they sons?
37:150 Or, did We create the angels females while they were witnessing?
37:151 Then is it of their lying that they say:
37:152 'Allah has begotten? ' They are truly liars.
37:153 Has He chosen daughters above sons?
37:154 What is the matter with you? How do you judge?
37:155 What, will you not remember?
37:156 Or, do you have a clear authority?
37:157 Bring your Book, if what you say is true!
37:158 They assert kinship between Him and the angels. But the angels know that they (the liars) will be arraigned (in Hell).
37:159 Exaltations to Allah above what they describe,
37:160 except for the sincere worshipers of Allah.
37:161 But as for you, and that you worship,
37:162 you shall tempt none against Him
37:163 except for he who shall roast in Hell.
37:164 (Gabriel said to the Prophet): 'Each of us has a known place.
37:165 We are surely those who are arranged in ranks.
37:166 And we are they who exalt (Allah). '
37:167 What, would they then say:
37:168 'If only we had a reminder from the ancients,
37:169 we would have been sincere worshipers of Allah. '
37:170 But they disbelieve in it (the Koran), but soon they shall know!
37:171 Our Word had already preceded Our worshipers, the Messengers,
37:172 that they shall receive Our help
37:173 and Our armies shall be the victors.
37:174 So turn (away) from them for a while.
37:175 See them and soon they shall see.
37:176 What, do they seek to hasten Our punishment?
37:177 When it descends upon their courtyards, evil will be the morning of those forewarned.
37:178 So turn (away) from them for a while,
37:179 and see, soon they shall see!
37:180 Exaltations be to your Lord, the Lord of Might, above that they describe!
37:181 Peace be on the Messengers.
37:182 And praise belongs to Allah, Lord of the Worlds.
