Syed Vickar Ahamed rendition of Surah Those Who Set The Ranks, Drawn up in Ranks, The Rangers(as-Saffat)
37:1 By those who arrange themselves in ranks (or rows, to serve and to worship Allah,)
37:2 And by those who raise the clouds in a holy way, (to keep away the fears from the mind of humans,)
37:3 And those who recite the Message (of Allah)!
37:4 Surely! (And assuredly,) your Allah is One (Wah'id)!
37:5 Lord of the heavens and of the earth, and all (that is) between them, and Lord of every point of the sun-rising, (that keeps changing every day of the year)
37:6 Verily, We have truly stored the lower heaven with beauty (of) the stars—
37:7 (For beauty) and for protection against every tough (unwilling and) revolting Satan,
37:8 (So that) they (the Satans') should not try to hear from the direction of the Exalted Assembly (of men and angels in Allah’s service and worship) but (they) be thrown out from every side,
37:9 Outcast (and unwelcome), they are under an everlasting penalty,
37:10 Except such who may snatch something by stealing: And they are being followed by a flaming Fire of stabbing brightness.
37:11 Then just ask (the disbelievers) what they think: Are they the more difficult to create, or the (other) creations whom We have created surely, We have created them (the disbelievers) out of a sticky clay!
37:12 Nay! Do you wonder while they mock (and make fun of you and the Quran)?
37:13 And when they are reminded, they pay no attention—
37:14 And when they see a Sign (from Allah), they mock at it,
37:15 And they say: "This is nothing but evident magic!"
37:16 "What!" (they ask), "When we are dead, and become dust and bones, shall we (then) be resurrected (raised up again)?
37:17 "And also our fathers from the old (days)?"
37:18 You say: "Yes, then you shall (also) be put to shame (because of your evil)."
37:19 Then it will be a single (harsh) cry; And look, they will begin to see!
37:20 They will say: "Woe (misery) to us! This is the Day of Judgment!"
37:21 (A voice will say:) "This is the Day of Sorting Out, whose Truth you denied (once)!
37:22 (The angels will be told): "Bring (all of) you up (for Judgment); The wrongdoers and their companions; And the things they worshipped—
37:23 "Besides Allah, and lead them to the way to the (burning) Fire!
37:24 "But stop them, verily, they must be asked:
37:25 " 'What is the matter with you, why do you not help each other (now)?' "
37:26 No! But on that Day they shall submit themselves, (to the Judgment)
37:27 And they will turn to one another, and question one another.
37:28 They will say: "It was you who used to come to us from the right hand (of power and authority)!"
37:29 They will reply: "No, you, yourselves were not believers!
37:30 "Also we did not have any authority over you. No, it was you who were a transgressing people!
37:31 "So now (this moment) has come true against us, the Word of our Lord that we shall really taste (the penalty of our sins).
37:32 "We led you astray: Because, truly we were ourselves astray."
37:33 Then truly, (on) that Day, they will (all) share in the Penalty.
37:34 Surely, that is how We shall deal with the criminals (Al-Mujrimun).
37:35 Truly, when they were told that there is no god except Allah, they would fill themselves up with (false) pride,
37:36 And they said: "What! Shall we give up our gods for the sake of a poet possessed?" (Referring to Prophet)
37:37 No, he (the Messenger) has come with the Truth, and he restates (the Message of) the messengers (before him).
37:38 Verily, you shall really taste the painful Penalty—
37:39 But it will be no more than the penalty for (the evil) that you have done —
37:40 Except the true (and loving) servants of Allah—
37:41 For them, their food (and provision) is known;
37:42 Fruits (and Joys); And they (shall have) honor and dignity,
37:43 In Gardens of (supreme) happiness
37:44 Facing each other on thrones (of dignity):
37:45 Around to them will be passed a Cup from a clear-flowing fountain,
37:46 Crystal-white (and) of a delicious taste for those who drink (from it),
37:47 Free from all pains (and annoyances); They will not suffer intoxication (from it).
37:48 And beside them will be noble (and pure) women, holding back their looks, with big eyes (filled wonder and beauty).
37:49 As if they were (delicate) eggs closely guarded (from evil).
37:50 Then they will turn to one another and question one another.
37:51 One of them will start the speak and say: "Verily, I had a close companion (on the earth),
37:52 "Who used to say: 'What! Are you from those (people) who confirms the Truth (of the Message)?
37:53 " 'That when we die and become dust and bones, shall we really receive the rewards and punishments?' "
37:54 (The speaker) said: "Would you like to look down?"
37:55 So he looked down and saw him (the questioner) in the middle of the Fire.
37:56 He (the speaker) said: "By Allah! You brought me very close to ruin (in this Hell)!
37:57 "Had it not been for the Grace of my Lord, I would surely be among those brought (to Hell)!"
37:58 (The people of Paradise will say:) "Is it (true) that we will not die (again),
37:59 "Except our first death, and that we shall not be punished?"
37:60 Surely, this is the supreme success (to be in the Paradise of joy)!
37:61 For those who like (the state) this (joy) let (them) all work hard, (those) who wish to strive.
37:62 Is that (the Paradise), the better place (of joy) or the (evil and wicked) tree of Zaqqum (in the Pit of Hell, see 37.64—65)?
37:63 Truly, We have made it (the evil tree of Zaqqum) a trial for the wrongdoers.
37:64 Verily, it is a tree that comes out from the bottom of Hell-Fire:
37:65 The buds of its fruit-stalk, come out of the stems; (They are) like the heads of Satans':
37:66 Truly, they (the wrongdoers) will eat from there and fill their stomachs with it.
37:67 Then on top of that they will be given a mixture made of boiling water.
37:68 Then, thereafter, verily their return will be to the burning Fire of Hell.
37:69 Truly, they found their fathers on the wrong path;
37:70 So they (also) were rushed down after them (in their fathers evil footsteps)!
37:71 And indeed, before them, many (people) from the olden days went astray—
37:72 And indeed, We sent (messengers) among them, to warn them—
37:73 Then see what was the end of those who were warned (but did not pay attention)—
37:74 Except the devoted (and loving) servants of Allah.
37:75 And indeed, (in the old days), Nuh (Noah) cried to Us, and We are the best of those to answer him.
37:76 And We rescued him, and his family from the great destruction (of the Flood),
37:77 And made his children (and descendants) to live (and stay on this earth);
37:78 And We left for him (this noble blessing) in the generations to follow in later times:
37:79 "Peace! (and greetings) to Nuh (Noah) among the (Our) Creation!"
37:80 Truly, like this do We reward those who do good.
37:81 Verily, he (Nuh) was one of Our believing servants.
37:82 Then We drowned the others (in the Flood).
37:83 And surely, among those who followed his (Nuh’s) way was Ibrahim (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 that, which you worship?
37:86 "Is it a lie, false gods other than Allah, that you want?
37:87 "Then what do you know about the Lord of the Worlds (Rab-Al-'Ala'meen )?"
37:88 Then he took a look at the stars,
37:89 And he said, "I am truly sick (at my heart)!"
37:90 So they (his people) turned away from him, and left (him).
37:91 Then he turned to their gods and said: "Will you not eat (from what is offered to you)?...
37:92 "What is the matter with you that you do not speak (and make sense)?"
37:93 Then he turned upon them (their gods), striking (them) with the right hand.
37:94 Then (the worshippers) came with quick steps, and faced (him).
37:95 He said: "Do you worship what you have carved (yourselves)?
37:96 "While (it is) Allah (Who) has created you and (also) what you have made!"
37:97 They said: "Build for him a house (burning like a furnace), and throw him into the blazing fire!"
37:98 So (after having failed; See 21.69), they then took a way (to hurt) against him, but We made them the ones most ashamed!
37:99 And he said: "Verily, I am going to my Lord! He will surely guide me!
37:100 "O my Lord! Grant me (a progeny) of the righteous!"
37:101 So, We gave him the good news of a boy ready (to be born) to suffer and be patient.
37:102 And when (his son, Ismail) became (the age to) work with him, he (Ibrahim) said: "O my son! I see in a dream (vision) that I offer you in sacrifice (to Allah): Now see what is your (own) thought!" (The son) said: "O my father! Do like you are commanded: You will find me, if Allah so wills one who has (great) patience (and constancy!)"
37:103 Then, when they both had submitted their wills (to Allah’s Wish), and he (Ibrahim) had laid him (his son, Ismail) prostrate on his forehead (for sacrifice),
37:104 We called out to him, "O Ibrahim (Abraham)!
37:105 "You have already fulfilled your vision!"— Verily, thus We do reward those who do good.
37:106 Indeed, it was clearly a trial (for Ibrahim)—
37:107 And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice (with that of a ram):
37:108 And We left for him (this blessing) in the generations to follow in later times:
37:109 "Peace be upon to Ibrahim (Abraham)!"
37:110 Verily, thus do We reward those who do good.
37:111 Indeed, he was one of Our believing servants.
37:112 And We gave him the good news of Ishaq (Isaac)— A prophet— One of the righteous.
37:113 We blessed him and Ishaq (Isaac): And of their children (and descendants) are (some) who do right, and (some) who clearly do wrong to their own souls.
37:114 And again, (from the past) We bestowed Our favor on Musa (Moses) and Haroon (Aaron),
37:115 And We saved them and their people from (their) great misfortune;
37:116 And We helped them, so that they overcame (their troubles);
37:117 And We gave them the Book and Clear Scripture (Torah, which helps to make things clear);
37:118 And We guided them to the Straight Path.
37:119 And We left for them (this blessing) in the generations to follow in later times:
37:120 “Peace, be upon Musa (Moses) and to Haroon (Aaron)!"
37:121 Verily, thus do We reward those who do good.
37:122 Indeed, they were two of Our believing servants.
37:123 And verily, Ilyas (Elias) was one of Our messengers.
37:124 When he said to his people: "Will you fear (Allah)?
37:125 "Will you call upon the false god (Baal) and give up the Best of Creators—
37:126 "Allah— Your Lord and (Cherisher and) the Lord (and Cherisher) of your fathers from the earlier days?"
37:127 But they denied him, so they will be truly brought up (for punishment)—
37:128 Except the sincere and the devoted servants of Allah (among them).
37:129 And We left for him (this blessing) in the generations to follow in later times:
37:130 "Peace be upon those like Ilyas (Elias)!"
37:131 Verily, thus do We reward those who do good.
37:132 Indeed, he was one of Our believing servants!
37:133 And verily, Lut (Lot) was one of the messengers.
37:134 Truly, We saved him and all his people (with him)
37:135 Except an old woman (his wife) who was with those who fell behind:
37:136 Then We destroyed the rest.
37:137 Surely, you pass by their (sites) by the morning—
37:138 And by night: Will you not reflect and understand?
37:139 And verily, Yunus (Jonah) was one of the messengers.
37:140 When he ran away (like a slave runs from captivity) to the ship (fully) loaded (with men and cargo),
37:141 Then he (agreed to foretell fortunes and) cast lots, (and he was blamed for the ships bad weather) and he was a loser, punished (and thrown in the sea):
37:142 Then the (big) fish swallowed him, and he had done actions worthy of blame (by running away from his mission).
37:143 If it was that he had not (repented and) glorified Allah,
37:144 He would surely have remained inside the fish till the Day of Resurrection (to be raised from the dead).
37:145 But We cast (threw) him on the open shore while he was (still) sick,
37:146 And We made a vine (of hard shelled fruit) to grow over him for shade.
37:147 And We sent him to (teach Allah’s Message to) a hundred thousand (men) or more.
37:148 And they believed; So We let them enjoy (their lives) for a while.
37:149 Now ask them (the unbelievers) what they think: Is it that your Lord has (only) daughters, and they have sons?
37:150 Or that We created the angels female, and they have seen (it)?
37:151 Verily, is it not they who say (in their disbelief and), from their own lies and sayings:
37:152 "Allah has had children?" And verily, they are liars!
37:153 Did He (then) choose daughters rather than sons?
37:154 What is the matter with you? How do you decide?
37:155 Then will you not remember (receive the warning)?
37:156 Or do you have a clear authority?
37:157 (If so), then you bring your Book (of authority) if you are truthful!
37:158 And they have invented a blood-relationship between Him and the jinns', but the jinns' know (very well) that they (also) have to appear (for Judgment)!
37:159 Glorified be Allah! (He is) Free from the things that they relate (to Him)!
37:160 Except those slaves of Allah, whom He chooses.
37:161 So surely, neither you nor those you worship—
37:162 Can lead (any of Allah’s servents) into temptation (and lies) about Allah,
37:163 Except those who are (by themselves) going to the blazing Fire (of Hell)!
37:164 (Those angels arranged in ranks to serve Allah say): "Not even one of us does not have a place appointed;
37:165 "And, verily we are surely arranged in ranks (for Allah’s Service);
37:166 "And surely we are those who speak out (Allah’s Supreme) Glory!"
37:167 And indeed they (the pagan Arabs) used to say,
37:168 "If only we have had a Message before us from those (Books) of old,
37:169 "We would truly have been the Servants of Allah, sincere (and loving)!"
37:170 But (now that the Quran has come), they (still) reject it: But soon will they know (the penalty)!
37:171 And surely, Our Word, already has been given before (this) to Our servants and messengers sent.
37:172 That they would certainly be made victorious,
37:173 And that Our forces— Surely, they would the be victors
37:174 So you (O Prophet!) turn away from them for a little while,
37:175 And watch them (how they will do), and they shall soon see (how you do)!
37:176 Do they really want to hurry Our punishment?
37:177 Then when it (the punishment) falls into the open space before them; Painful will be the morning for those who were warned (but did not pay attention)!
37:178 So you turn away from them for a little while,
37:179 And watch them (how they will do), and they shall soon see (how you do)!
37:180 Glorified be your Lord, the Lord of Honor and Power! (He is free) from the things that they relate (to Him)!
37:181 And Peace (be) on the messengers (of Allah)!
37:182 And all the Praises (and thanks) to Allah, the Lord (and Cherisher) of the Worlds (Rab-Al-'Ala'meen).
