37:1  By those who range themselves in rank
37:2  and by those who cast out demons
37:3  and by those who proclaim the message
37:4  : surely your God is One
37:5  the Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all that lies between them, and the Lord of the easts
37:6  We have indeed decked the worldly heaven with beautiful star
37:7  and have secured it against all obstinate rebellious Satans
37:8  They cannot even hear the words of the exalted assembly of angels and they are darted at from every sid
37:9  they are repulsed and are under a constant chastisement
37:10  Eavesdroppers are persuaded by a flaming fire of piercing brightness
37:11  Ask them: "What is more difficult - their creation or the rest of Our creation? - Them We have created out of a sticky clay
37:12  You marvel at the wonders of Allah’s creation, while they ridicule at it
37:13  When they are admonished, they pay no heed
37:14  and when they see a sign, they mock at i
37:15  and say: "This is nothing but plain sorcery
37:16  What! When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we be raised to life agai
37:17  - we and also our forefathers of the ancient time?"
37:18  Tell them: "Yes and you shall be held up to shame."
37:19  It will be just a single cry, and they will see it all with their own eyes
37:20  Ah, woe to us! They shall exclaim, "this is the Day of Judgement!"
37:21  It will be said: "Yes, this is the same Day of Judgement which you used to deny."
37:22  It will be commanded: "Gather all the wrongdoers, their spouses and those whom they used to worshi
37:23  besides Allah and show them the way to hell
37:24  When they will all be gathered and angels will start pushing them towards hell, Allah shall say: "Stop for a while, they have to be questioned
37:25  What is the matter with you today that you do not help each other
37:26  Nay! On that Day they shall all be submissive
37:27  Some of them will step forward to question one another
37:28  The followers will say to their leaders: "It was you who used to come at us from the right hand and forced us towards the wrong way."
37:29  They will reply: "Nay! But it was you who had no faith
37:30  We had no power over you, the fact is that you were an inordinate people
37:31  true is the verdict which Our Lord has passed upon us, we shall indeed taste the punishment of our sins
37:32  We misled you, for we ourselves were astray."
37:33  So on that Day they shall all be partners in the punishment
37:34  Thus, shall We deal with the criminals
37:35  for when they were told: "There is no god except Allah," they used to puff themselves up with prid
37:36  and say: "What! Should we give up our gods for the sake of a mad poet?"
37:37  Whereas he had come with the truth and had confirmed the message of prior Messengers
37:38  Then it will be said: "You are surely going to taste the painful punishment
37:39  and this reward is nothing except what you had done
37:40  But the sincere devotees of Alla
37:41  shall have familiar sustenanc
37:42  - fruits, and shall be honore
37:43  in the gardens of delight
37:44  Reclining face to face upon soft couches
37:45  they shall be served with goblets filled at a fountain of wine
37:46  a crystal-white drink, delicious to those who drink it
37:47  It will neither dull their senses nor they will become drunk
37:48  And beside them there will be bashful, dark big beautiful-eyed virgins
37:49  as if they were delicate eggs closely guarded
37:50  Some of them will be asking questions to others
37:51  One of them will say: "I had a frien
37:52  who used to ask: ‘Are you really of those who affirm (the message of Islam)
37:53  When we are dead and turned to dust and bones, shall we ever be brought to judgement?’"
37:54  It will be said: "Would you like to see him?"
37:55  He will look down and see his friend in the midst of hellfire
37:56  Then he will say: "By Allah! You had almost ruined me
37:57  Had it not been for the grace of my Lord, I should certainly have been among those who are brought there
37:58  Is it not so that we shall not di
37:59  after our first death and that we shall not be chastised?"
37:60  Most surely it is a mighty achievement
37:61  For such an end, let every one strive who wishes to strive
37:62  Is this a better entertainment or the tree of Zaqqum
37:63  Surely We have made this tree a trial for the wrongdoers
37:64  Surely it is a tree that grows in the bottom of the hellfire
37:65  bearing fruits as if they were heads of Satans
37:66  on it they shall feed and with it they shall fill their bellies
37:67  Then on top of that, they will be given a concoction made from boiling water
37:68  Then to hellfire they shall be returned
37:69  In fact, they found their fathers on the wrong path
37:70  and they are eagerly following their footsteps
37:71  Most of the ancients went astray before them
37:72  though We had sent Warners to them
37:73  See what was the end of those who had been forewarned: they all perished
37:74  except the sincere devotees of Allah
37:75  Noah prayed to Us; see how excellent was Our response to his prayer
37:76  We delivered him and his people from the mighty distress
37:77  and made his progeny to be the only survivors
37:78  and We left his good name among the later generations
37:79  SaLotation to Noah among the people of the worlds
37:80  Thus do We reward the righteous
37:81  Surely he was one of Our believing devotees
37:82  Then the rest We drowned in the great flood
37:83  Surely Abraham belonged to the first group
37:84  when he came to his Lord with a pure heart
37:85  Behold, he said to his father and to his people: "What are these that you worship
37:86  Would you serve false gods instead of Allah
37:87  What is your idea about the Lord of the worlds?"
37:88  Then he looked at the stars one tim
37:89  and said "I am feeling sick."
37:90  So his people left him behind and went away to their national fair
37:91  He sneaked into the temple of their gods and addressed them: "Why don’t you eat from these offerings before you
37:92  What is the matter with you that you don’t even speak?"
37:93  Then he fell upon them, smiting them with his right hand
37:94  The people came running to the scene
37:95  Would you worship that which you have carved with your own hands, he said
37:96  when Allah is the One Who created you and that which you have made
37:97  They said to one another: "Prepare for him a furnace and throw him into the blazing flames."
37:98  Thus did they scheme against him: but We humiliated them in their scheme
37:99  Abraham said: "I am going to take refuge with my Lord, He will surely guide me
37:100  O Lord! Grant me a righteous son."
37:101  So We gave him the good news of a gentle son
37:102  When he reached the age to work with him, Abraham said to him: "O my son! I have seen a vision that I should offer you as a sacrifice, now tell me what is your view." He replied: "O my father! Do as you are commanded: you will find me, if Allah so wills, of the patient."
37:103  And when they both submitted to Allah and Abraham laid down his son prostrate upon his forehead for sacrifice
37:104  We called out to him: "O Abraham stop
37:105  You have fulfilled your vision." Thus do We reward the righteous
37:106  That was indeed a manifest test
37:107  We ransomed his son for a great sacrific
37:108  and We left his good name among the later generations
37:109  SaLotation to Abraham
37:110  Thus We reward the righteous
37:111  Surely he was one of Our believing devotees
37:112  We gave him the good news of Isaac - a prophet - one of the righteous
37:113  We blessed him and Isaac both. Among their progeny there are some who are righteous and some who are clearly doing wrong to their own souls
37:114  We bestowed Our favor on Moses and Haroon
37:115  We delivered them with all their people from the mighty distress
37:116  We helped them so they became victorious
37:117  We gave them the Glorious Book (Torah)
37:118  and guided them both to the Right Way
37:119  We left their good names among the later generations
37:120  SaLotation to Moses and Haroon
37:121  Thus do We reward the righteous
37:122  Surely they were two of Our believing devotees
37:123  Ilyas (Elias) was surely one of Our Messengers
37:124  Behold, he said to his people: "Have you no fear of Allah
37:125  Would you invoke Bal (their invented god) and forsake the best of the Creator
37:126  - Allah - Who is your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers?"
37:127  But they denied him, so they will certainly be called to account
37:128  with the exception of sincere devotees of Allah
37:129  We left his good name among the later generations
37:130  SaLotation to Ilyas
37:131  Thus do We reward the righteous
37:132  He was surely one of Our believing devotees
37:133  Lot was one of Our Messengers
37:134  Behold, We delivered him and his whole famil
37:135  except an old woman who was among those who remained behind
37:136  and We destroyed the others
37:137  Surely you pass by their ruins by da
37:138  and by night. Will you not use your common sense
37:139  Jonah was surely one of Our Messengers
37:140  When he ran to the laden ship
37:141  took part in casting of lots, and was condemned
37:142  A whale swallowed him for he had become blameworthy
37:143  Had he not repented and became of those who glorify Allah
37:144  he would certainly have remained inside its belly till the Day of Resurrection
37:145  Then We cast him upon a desolate shore in a state of serious illnes
37:146  and caused a gourd plant to grow over him
37:147  Then We sent him to a nation of one hundred thousand people or more
37:148  They believed in him, so We permitted them to enjoy their life for a while
37:149  Just ask the unbelievers: Does it make any sense that their Lord should have daughters while they choose to have sons
37:150  Or is it that We created the angels as females and they were present at their creation
37:151  Surely they invent a lie when they say:
37:152  Allah has children. They are utter liars
37:153  Would He choose daughters rather than sons
37:154  What is the matter with you? How do you judge
37:155  Will you not take heed
37:156  Or do you have any proof of what you are saying
37:157  Show us your scriptures if you are truthful
37:158  They assert blood- relationship between Him and the jinns; and the jinns know quite well that they will be called to account
37:159  Glory be to Allah! He is free from what they ascribe to Hi
37:160  except His sincere devotees who do not attribute such things to Him
37:161  Therefore neither you nor those whom you worshi
37:162  can deceive anyone about Alla
37:163  except him who is destined for hell
37:164  The angels in fact say: "We each have our appointed place
37:165  We range ourselves in ranks for His servic
37:166  and we are surely those who declare His glory."
37:167  Before this, the same disbelievers used to say
37:168  If we had received a reminder which the earlier people had received
37:169  We certainly would have been sincere devotees of Allah
37:170  But now that the Qur’an has come, they reject it: but soon they will find out the consequences of this attitude
37:171  We have already promised Our servants whom We sent as Messenger
37:172  that they would certainly be helped
37:173  and that Our forces will surely be victorious
37:174  So give no heed to them for a while
37:175  you will see their downfall as they shall see your victory
37:176  Do they wish to hurry on Our punishment
37:177  But dreadful will be that morning, when it will descend in the courtyards of those who have been forewarned
37:178  So pay no heed to them for a while
37:179  You will surely see their downfall as they shall see your victory
37:180  Glory be to your Lord, the Lord of Honor, He is free from what they ascribe to Him
37:181  Peace be on the Messengers
37:182  and praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds
