Abdul Majid Daryabadi 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 angels driving away.
37:3 By the angels reciting the praise.
37:4 Verily your God is One.
37:5 Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is in- between the twain, and Lord of the easts.
37:6 Verily We! We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment: the stars.
37:7 And have placed therein a guard against any Satan froward.
37:8 They cannot listen to the exalted assembly, and they are darted at from every side.
37:9 With a driving fusillade, and theirs shall be a torment perpetual;
37:10 Except him who snatcheth away a word by stealth, and him then pursueth a glowing flame.
37:11 Ask them thou: are they stronger in structure or those others whom We have created? Verily We! We have created them of a sticky clay.
37:12 Aye! thou marvellest, and they scoff.
37:13 And when they are admonished, they receive not admcnition.
37:14 And when they behold a sign, they turn to scoffing.
37:15 And they say: this Qur'an is naught but magic manifest.
37:16 When we have become dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then verily be raised?
37:17 And also our forefathers?
37:18 Say thou: and verily ye; shall then be despicable.
37:19 It shall be but one shout, lo! they shall be staring.
37:20 And they will say: Ah! woe be Unto us! this is the Day of Requital.
37:21 This is the Day of Judgment which ye were wont to belie.
37:22 Gather together those who did wrong and their comrades and that which they were wont to worship
37:23 Beside Allah, and lead them on to the path of the Flaming Fire.
37:24 And stop them; verily they are to be questioned:
37:25 What aileth you that ye succour not one another?
37:26 Nay! on that Day they will be entirely submissive.
37:27 And they will advance toward each other mutually questioning.
37:28 They will say: verily ye! ye were wont to come Unto us Imposing.
37:29 They will say: nay! ye yourselves were not believers.
37:30 And we had over you no authority, but ye were a people exorbitant.
37:31 So on us hath been justified the sentence of our Lord: verily we are to taste.
37:32 We seduced you astray; verily we were ourselves the seduced ones.
37:33 So verily on that Day they all in the torment will be sharers.
37:34 Verily We! in this wise We deal with the culprits.
37:35 Verily when it was said Unto them: there is no god but Allah, they ever grew stiff-necked.
37:36 And they said: are we going to abandon our gods on account of a Poet distracted?
37:37 Aye! he hath come with the truth, and he confesseth to the sent ones.
37:38 Verily ye are going to taste a torment afflictive.
37:39 And ye shall be required not except for that which ye have been doing;
37:40 But the bondmen of Allah, the sincere ones -
37:41 Those! theirs shall be a provision known:
37:42 Fruits! And they shall be honoured.
37:43 In Gardens of Delight.
37:44 On couches, facing one another.
37:45 Round shall be passed a cup Unto them filled with limpid drink:
37:46 White, a pleasure Unto the drinkers.
37:47 No headiness there shall be therein, nor shall they be therewith Inebriated.
37:48 And with them shall be damsels of refraining looks, large- eyed
37:49 As though they were eggs hidden.
37:50 Then they will advance Unto each other, mutually questioning.
37:51 And a speaker from among them will say: verily there was Unto me a mate.
37:52 Who said: art thou of those who confess to the doctrine of Resurrection:
37:53 When we are dead and have become dust and bones, are we indeed going to be requited?
37:54 Allah will say: will ye look down?
37:55 Then he will look down and see him in the midst of the Flaming Fire.
37:56 And he will say: by Allah, thou hadst wellnigh causedest me to perish.
37:57 And but for the favourcf my lord, I should have been of those brought forward.
37:58 Are we not then to die
37:59 Save our first death, and are we not to be tormented?
37:60 Verily this! that is the supreme achievement.
37:61 For the like of this, then, let the workers work.
37:62 Is this better as an entertainment or the tree of Zaqqum?
37:63 Verily We! We have made it a temptation for the wrong- doers.
37:64 Verily it is a tree that springeth forth in the bottom of Flaming Fire.
37:65 The fruit thereof is as though the hoods of the serpents.
37:66 And verily they must eat thereof and fill their bellies therewith.
37:67 And thereafter verily they shall have thereon a draught of balling water.
37:68 And thereafter verily their return is Unto the Flaming Fire.
37:69 Verily they found their fathers gone astray.
37:70 So they in their footsteps are rushing.
37:71 And assuredly there went stray before them many of the ancients.
37:72 And assuredly We sent among them warners.
37:73 So behold what wise hath been the end of those who were warned.
37:74 Save the bondmen of Allah sincere.
37:75 And assuredly Nuh cried Unto us; and We are the Best of answerers!
37:76 And We delivered him and his people from the great affliction.
37:77 And his offspring! them We made the survivors.
37:78 And We left for him among the posterity.
37:79 Peace be on Nuh among the worlds.
37:80 Verily We! thus We recompense the well-doers.
37:81 Verily he was of Our bondmen believing.
37:82 Then We drowned the others.
37:83 And verily of his sect was Ibrahim.
37:84 Recall what time he came Unto his lord with a heart whole.
37:85 Recall what time he said Unto his father and his people: What is it that ye worship?
37:86 Is it a falsehood-god beside Allah - that ye desire?
37:87 what, then, is your opinion of the Lord of the worlds?
37:88 Then he glanced a glance on the stars.
37:89 And he said: verily I am about to be sick.
37:90 So they departed from him turning their backs.
37:91 Then he slipped Unto their gods and said: eat ye not
37:92 What aileth ye that ye speak not?
37:93 Then he slipped Unto them striking them with the right hand.
37:94 Then they advanced toward him, hastening.
37:95 He said: worship ye that which carve.
37:96 Whereas Allah hath created you and that which ye make?
37:97 They said. build for him a building and cast him into the flaming fire.
37:98 And they devised a plot for him, but We made them the humble.
37:99 And he said: verily I am going to my Lord who will guide me.
37:100 My Lord! Bestow on me a son who will be of the righteous.
37:101 Wherefore We gave him the glad tidings of a boy gentle.
37:102 And when he attained the age of, running with him, he said: O my son! verily I have seen in a dream that I am slaughtering thee; so look, what considerest thou? He said: O my father! do that which thou art commanded; thou shalt find me, Allah willing, of the patients.
37:103 Then when the twain had submitted themselves and he had prostrated him upon his temple.
37:104 We cried Unto him: O Ibrahim
37:105 Of a surety thou hast fulfilled the vision. Verily We! thus We recompense the well-doers.
37:106 Verily that! that was a trial manifest.
37:107 And We ransomed him with a mighty victim.
37:108 And We left for him among the posterity:
37:109 Peace be Unto Ibrahim:
37:110 Verily We! thus We compense the well-doers.
37:111 Verily he was one of Our believing bondmen.
37:112 And We gave him the glad tidings of Is-haq, a prophet, and of the righteous.
37:113 And We blessed him and Is-haq; and of their offspring are some well-doers and some who wrong themselves manifestly.
37:114 And assuredly We gave grace Unto Musa and Harun.
37:115 And delivered them and their people from the great affliction.
37:116 And We succoured them so that they became overcomers.
37:117 And We vouchsafed Unto the twain a Book luminous.
37:118 And We led the twain on Unto the straight path.
37:119 And We left for the twain among the posterity:
37:120 Peace be Unto Musa and Harun.
37:121 Verily We! thus We recompense the well-doers.
37:122 Verily the twain were of Our bondmen believing.
37:123 And verily, llyas was one of the sent ones.
37:124 Recall what time he said Unto his people: fear ye not?
37:125 Call ye upon Bal and forsake the Best of creators.
37:126 Allah, your Lord and Lord of your forefathers?
37:127 Then they belied him, so verily they are to be brought up.
37:128 Except the bondmen of Allah sincere.
37:129 And We left for him among the posterity:
37:130 Peace be Unto Elyasin.
37:131 Verily We! thus We recompense the well-doers.
37:132 Verily he was one of Our bondmen believing.
37:133 And verily Lut was of the sent ones.
37:134 Recall what time We delivered him and his household, all.
37:135 Save an old woman among the lingerers.
37:136 Then We annihilated the others.
37:137 And surely ye pass by them in the morning.
37:138 And at night. Will ye not therefore reflect?
37:139 And verily Yunus was Of the sent ones.
37:140 Recall what time he ran away Unto a laden ship.
37:141 Then he joined the lots, and was of the condemned.
37:142 And a fish swallowed him, and he was reproaching himself.
37:143 And had he not been of those who hallow Him,
37:144 He would have tarried in the belly thereof till the Day when they are raised.
37:145 Then We cast him on a bare desert whilst he was sick.
37:146 And We caused to grow over him a tree, a gourd.
37:147 And We had sent him to a hundred thousand: rather they exceeded.
37:148 And they believed, whrefore We let them enjoy life for a season.
37:149 Now ask thou them: there for thy Lord daughters and for them sons?
37:150 Or created We the angels females while they were witnesses?
37:151 Lo! verily it is of their falsehood that they say:
37:152 God hath begotten. Verily they are the liars.
37:153 Hath He chosen daughters above sons?
37:154 What aileth you? How judge ye?
37:155 Will ye not then be admonished?
37:156 Or, is there for you a clear warranty
37:157 Then bring your book, if ye say sooth.
37:158 And they have made a kinship between Him and the jinn a kinship whereas the jinn assuredly know that they are to be brought up
37:159 Hallowed be Allah from that which they ascribe to Him.
37:160 Except the bondmen of Allah sincere.
37:161 Wherefore verily neither ye nor that which ye worship,
37:162 Can tempt anyone to rebel against Him.
37:163 Save him Who is to roast in the Flaming Fire.
37:164 Of us there is none but hath a station assigned.
37:165 And verily we! we are ranged in ranks.
37:166 And verily we! we halloW.
37:167 And they surely were wont to say:
37:168 Had we but an admonition as had the ancients.
37:169 Surefy we would have been the bondmen of God sincere.
37:170 Yet they disbelieve therein. Presently they shall come to know.
37:171 And assuredly Our word hath already gone forth Our bondmen, the sent ones:
37:172 That verily they! they shall be made triumphant.
37:173 And verily Our host! they are to be overcome.
37:174 So turn thou aside from them for a season.
37:175 And see them thou; they themselves shall presently see.
37:176 Our torment seek they to hasten on!
37:177 Then when it descendeth Unto them face to, face, a hapless morn that shall be for those who were Warned.
37:178 And turn thou aside from them for a season.
37:179 And see thou: they themselves shall presently see.
37:180 Hallowed be thine Lord, the Lord of Majesty, from that which they ascribe!
37:181 And peace be Unto the sent ones.
37:182 And all praise Unto Allah the Lord of the worlds.
