37:1  (I swear) by those who stand in rows
37:2  then by those who prevent firmly
37:3  then by those who recite the dhikr
37:4  surely your God is but One
37:5  the Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, and Lord of the points of sunrise
37:6  Verily, We have decorated the nearest sky with an adornment, the stars
37:7  and (have made them) a security against every rebellious devil
37:8  They cannot listen to the Upper Realm and are hit from every sid
37:9  to be driven off, and for them there is a lasting punishment
37:10  however, if one snatches a little bit, he is pursued by a bright flame
37:11  Now ask them, .Are they stronger in the formation of their bodies, or those (other beings) that We have created?. Certainly, We did create them from sticky clay
37:12  But you wonder (at their denial), and they mock (at the idea of an Hereafter)
37:13  And when any advice is given to them, they pay no heed to it
37:14  And when they see a sign, they make fun of it
37:15  and say, .This is nothing but an open magic
37:16  Is it when we have died and become dust and bones, that we shall be raised again
37:17  and even our fathers of aforetime?
37:18  Say, .Yes, and you shall be disgraced (too)!
37:19  So, it will be only a single castigating call, and all of a sudden they will begin to see
37:20  And they will be saying, .Woe to us; this is the Day of Retribution
37:21  (It will be said to them,) .This is the Day of Judgment that you used to deny
37:22  (It will be said to the angels,) .Muster all those who were unjust, and their fellows, and whatever they used to worshi
37:23  other than Allah, and show them the way to Jahannam
37:24  and stop them (for a while,) for they are to be asked some questions
37:25  (Then they will be asked, .What is wrong with you that you do not help each other?
37:26  On the contrary, that day all of them will have totally surrendered
37:27  And some of them (the followers of their chiefs) will turn to others (the chiefs), asking questions from one another
37:28  They (the followers) will say, .You were the ones who used to come to (mislead) us forcefully
37:29  They (the chiefs) will say, .On the contrary, you yourselves were not believers
37:30  We had no authority over you at all, but you yourselves were a transgressing people
37:31  So, the word of our Lord has come true against us. Indeed, we have to taste (the punishment)
37:32  We did misguide you, (because) we were ourselves erroneous
37:33  So, that day, they will share each other in punishment
37:34  This is how We deal with the criminals
37:35  They were those to whom when it was said: .There is no god but Allah., they waxed proud
37:36  and used to say, .Are we really to leave our gods because of an insane poet?
37:37  No, he has come with Truth and has confirmed all the messengers (of Allah)
37:38  Surely you have to taste the painful punishment,_
37:39  And you will be recompensed for nothing but for what you used to do__
37:40  unlike Allah‘s chosen servants
37:41  Those are the people for whom there is a known provision
37:42  the fruits; and they will be honore
37:43  in Gardens of Blis
37:44  facing each other on couches
37:45  They will be served with a cup from a flowing drink
37:46  (that will be) white (and) delicious for those who drink
37:47  There will be no headache therein, nor will they be intoxicated with it
37:48  and by their side there will be females restricting their gazes (to their husbands), having pretty big eyes
37:49  as if they were eggs hidden (under feathers, protected from pollution)
37:50  Then they will turn to each other asking questions mutually
37:51  A speaker from them will say, .I had a companion (in the worldly life
37:52  who used to say (to me), .Are you one of those who believe
37:53  Is it when we have died and become dust and bones? Is it true that we are going to be recompensed (for our deeds)?
37:54  He (the speaker) will say (to other people in Paradise) .Would you like to have a look (at Jahannam to find out what happened to that companion of mine)?
37:55  So he will look and will see him in the middle of Jahannam
37:56  He (the speaker) will say (to his companion seen in Jahannam ), .By Allah, you were going almost to ruin me
37:57  But for the favor of my Lord, I would have been among those produced for punishment
37:58  (Then the speaker will address other people of Paradise in delight and wonder, saying,) .Are we not then to die anymor
37:59  beyond our first death, nor are we going to be punished?
37:60  This is, indeed, the great achievement
37:61  For this kind (of achievement), all workers must work
37:62  Is that (blissful Paradise) better for hospitality or the tree of zaqqum
37:63  We have made it a test for the unjust
37:64  It is a tree that comes forth in the bottom of Jahannam
37:65  Its fruits are like the heads of devils
37:66  So, they have to eat from it and have to fill their bellies with it
37:67  Then they will have, on top of it, a mixture made of boiling water
37:68  Then, their final return is to the Fire
37:69  They found their fathers on the wrong path
37:70  So, they used to run in their footsteps
37:71  Most of the earlier ones (too) had gone astray before them
37:72  We did send warners among them
37:73  So look, how was the end of those warned
37:74  except Allah‘s chosen servants
37:75  And NuH did call Us (for help after he was disappointed with his people), so (We accepted his prayer, as) We are the best to respond
37:76  And We delivered him and his family from the great agony
37:77  and made his progeny the sole survivors (from the Deluge)
37:78  And We left for him (a word of praise) among the later people, (that is)
37:79  Salam be on NuH among (the people of) all the worlds
37:80  Certainly, this is how We reward those who are good in their deeds
37:81  He was one of Our believing servants
37:82  Then, we drowned others
37:83  And certainly one of his adherents was Ibrahim
37:84  (Remember) when he came to his Lord with a pure heart
37:85  when he said to his father and his people, .What is that which you worship
37:86  Do you wish (to have) fallacious gods other than Allah
37:87  Then, what do you think about the Lord of the worlds?
37:88  Then, he cast a look at the stars
37:89  and then said, .I feel indisposed
37:90  So they went away from him, turning their backs
37:91  And he made his way to their ‘gods‘ and said to them, .Why would you not eat
37:92  What is wrong with you that you do not speak?
37:93  Then he attacked them striking with his right hand
37:94  Then, they (the idolaters) came to him rushing
37:95  He said, .Do you worship what is carved by yourselves
37:96  while Allah has created you and what you make?
37:97  They said, .Build for him a structure, and throw him into the blazing fire
37:98  So, they intended to bring harm to him, but We made them the lowest (by frustrating their plan)
37:99  And he said, .I am going to my Lord. He will show me the way
37:100  O my Lord, bless me with a righteous son
37:101  So, We gave him the good news of a forbearing boy
37:102  Thereafter, when he (the boy) reached an age in which he could work with him, he (Ibrahim) said, .O my little son, I have seen in a dream that I am slaughtering you, so consider, what is your opinion?. He said, .O my dear father, do what you have been ordered to do. You will find me, insha‘allah , (if Allah wills) one of those who endure patiently
37:103  So, (it was a great episode) when both of them submitted themselves (to Allah‘s will), and he laid him on his forehead (to slaughter him)
37:104  and then We called out to him, .O Ibrahim
37:105  you did make the dream come true. This is how We reward those who are good in their deeds
37:106  This was indeed a trial that clearly demonstrated (their obedience)
37:107  And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice
37:108  and We left for him (a word of praise) among the later people
37:109  (that is,) .Salam be on Ibrahim
37:110  This is how We reward those who are good in their deeds
37:111  Surely, he is among Our believing servants
37:112  And We gave him the good news of IsHaq (Isaac), a prophet from among the righteous
37:113  And We did bless him, and IsHaq. And among the progeny of both of them, some are good and some are utterly unjust to their own selves
37:114  Certainly We bestowed favors upon Musa and Harun
37:115  and We delivered them and their people from the great agony
37:116  and We helped them, so they became victors
37:117  and We gave them the clear book
37:118  and guided them to the straight path
37:119  And We left for them (a word of praise) among the later people
37:120  (that is,) Salam be on Musa and Harun
37:121  This is how We reward those who are good in their deeds
37:122  Surely, both of them were among Our believing servants
37:123  And surely, Ilyas is one of the messengers
37:124  (Remember) when he said to his people: .Do you not fear Allah
37:125  Do you invoke Ba‘l, and ignore the Best of the creators
37:126  that is, Allah who is your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers?
37:127  Then they rejected him. Therefore, they will be arraigned
37:128  except Allah‘s chosen servants
37:129  And We left for him (a word of praise) among the later people
37:130  (that is,) .Salam on Ilyasin (Ilyas)
37:131  This is how We reward those who are good in their deeds
37:132  Surely, he was from among Our believing servants
37:133  And surely, LuT is one of the messengers
37:134  (Remember) when We saved him and his family, all of them
37:135  except an old woman among those remaining behind
37:136  After that, We destroyed other
37:137  and you do pass by them at daybrea
37:138  and by nightfall. Would you still not understand
37:139  And surely, Yunus (Jonah) is from among the messengers
37:140  (Remember) when he ran away towards the boat that was already loaded
37:141  Then he participated in drawing lots (to offload one of the passengers) and was the one who was defeated
37:142  Then the fish swallowed him while he was reproaching his own self
37:143  Had he not been of those who proclaim Allah‘s purity
37:144  he would have definitely lived in its belly till the day when the dead will be raised
37:145  Then We cast him ashore in the open while he was ill
37:146  and We caused a tree of ourds to grow over him
37:147  And We had sent him (as messenger) to one hundred thousand, or more
37:148  So, they believed, then, We let them enjoy for a time
37:149  So ask them, .Does your Lord have daughters while they have sons?
37:150  Or, had We created angels as females while they were witnessing
37:151  Beware! They are the ones who, by way of a lie of theirs, (have the audacity to) say
37:152  .Allah has children. - and they are absolute liars
37:153  Is it that Allah has chosen daughters (for Himself) instead of sons
37:154  What is the matter with you? How (arbitrarily) do you judge
37:155  Then, is it that you do not think about it
37:156  Or, is it that there is some open authority with you
37:157  Then bring your book, if you are truthful
37:158  And they have made up between Him (Allah) and the Jinns some kinship, while the Jinns already know that they are bound to be seized._
37:159  __Pure is Allah from what they describe_
37:160  except Allah‘s chosen servants
37:161  So, you and those whom you worship
37:162  none of you can make anyone turn away from Him (Allah)
37:163  except him who is to burn in Jahannam
37:164  And (the angels say,) .There is no one among us who does not have a known station
37:165  and We, surely We, are those who stand in row
37:166  and We, surely We, are those who proclaim Allah‘s purity
37:167  And they (the pagans) used to say
37:168  .Had there been a scripture with us like that of the former people
37:169  we would have certainly been Allah‘s chosen servants
37:170  Then (once the divine book came to them,) they disbelieved in it. So, very soon they will come to know
37:171  And Our Word has already come to pass in favor of Our servants, the messenger
37:172  (that) they are the ones who will be supported
37:173  and verily it is Our army (of chosen servants) that prevails
37:174  So, withdraw your attention from them for some time
37:175  But, watch them. They shall soon see (the reality)
37:176  Are they asking for Our punishment to come sooner
37:177  So, when it will descend in their courtyard, then, evil will be the morning of those warned
37:178  So, withdraw your attention from them for some time
37:179  and watch. They shall soon see (the reality)
37:180  Pure is your Lord, the Lord of all might and honor, from what they describ
37:181  and Salam be on the messenger
37:182  and praised is Allah, the Lord of all the worlds
