37:1  By those ranged in ranks
37:2  and the drivers driving
37:3  and the reciters of a reminder
37:4  truly your God is One
37:5  Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is between them, and Lord of the easts
37:6  Truly We adorned the lowest heaven with an ornament, the stars
37:7  and a guard against every defiant satan
37:8  They listen not to the Highest Assembly, for they are repelled from every side
37:9  cast out, and theirs shall be a punishment everlasting
37:10  save one who snatches a fragment as a piercing flame pursues him
37:11  So ask them, are they more difficult to create, or those whom We created? Truly We created them from a viscous clay
37:12  Indeed, but thou dost marvel, while they scoff
37:13  And when they are reminded, they do not remember
37:14  And when they see a sign, they seek to scoff
37:15  and say, “This is naught but manifest sorcery
37:16  What! When we have died and are dust and bones are we to be resurrected
37:17  and our fathers of old?
37:18  Say, “Yes, and debased will you be.
37:19  Then there will be but a single cry. And they will then behold
37:20  They will say, “Oh, woe unto us! This is the Day of Judgment.
37:21  This is the Day of Division that you used to deny
37:22  Gather those who did wrong together with their spouses and that which they used to worshi
37:23  apart from God, and guide them unto the path of Hellfire
37:24  And stop them. Surely they are to be questioned
37:25  “What ails you that you do not help one another?
37:26  Nay, but this Day they will surrender
37:27  And they will turn to one another, questioning each other
37:28  saying, “Truly you used to come to us from the right.
37:29  They reply, “Nay, but you were not believers
37:30  And we had no authority over you. Rather, you were a rebellious people
37:31  So the Word of our Lord has come due for us; truly we shall taste [it]
37:32  We caused you to err for truly we were errant.
37:33  Verily that Day they will share in the punishment
37:34  Thus do We deal with the guilty
37:35  Indeed, when it was said unto them, “There is no god but God,” they waxed arrogant
37:36  saying, “Are we to forsake our gods for a poet possessed?
37:37  Nay! He has come with the truth and confirmed the messengers
37:38  Truly you shall taste the painful punishment
37:39  And you shall not be requited, save for that which you used to do
37:40  Not so for God’s sincere servants
37:41  For them there shall be a known provision
37:42  fruits. And they will be honore
37:43  in Gardens of bliss
37:44  upon couches, facing one another
37:45  with a cup from a gushing spring brought round
37:46  white, delicious to those who drink thereof
37:47  No headiness lies therein; nor are they intoxicated by it
37:48  And theirs shall be maidens of modest gaze with lustrous eyes
37:49  as if they were hidden eggs
37:50  And they will turn to one another, questioning each other
37:51  One among them will say, “I had a companio
37:52  who would say, ‘Are you among those who confirm
37:53  What! When we have died and are dust and bones, are we to be requited?’
37:54  He will say, “Will you look?
37:55  So he will look and see him in the midst of Hellfire
37:56  He will say, “By God! You did well-nigh destroy me
37:57  and if not for the blessing of my Lord, I would have been among the arraigned
37:58  Are we then not to die
37:59  but our first death, and are we not to be punished
37:60  This indeed is the great triumph!
37:61  For the like of this, then, let the laborers labor
37:62  Is this a better welcome or the tree of Zaqqum
37:63  Truly We have made it a trial for the wrongdoers
37:64  Truly it is a tree that emerges in the depths of Hellfire
37:65  Its spathes are as the heads of satans
37:66  They will eat thereof and fill their bellies therewith
37:67  Then on top of it they will have a brew of a boiling liquid
37:68  Then their return shall be unto Hellfire
37:69  Truly they found their fathers astray
37:70  yet they hasten in their footsteps
37:71  And before them most of those of old had indeed gone astray
37:72  though We had indeed sent warners among them
37:73  So behold how those who were warned fared in the end
37:74  Not so for God’s sincere servants
37:75  And indeed Noah cried out to Us. How excellent are those who respond
37:76  We saved him and his people from great distress
37:77  and We made his progeny endure
37:78  and We left [a blessing] upon him among later generations
37:79  “Peace be upon Noah throughout the worlds.
37:80  Thus do We recompense the virtuous
37:81  Truly he was among Our believing servants
37:82  Then We drowned the others
37:83  And surely among his party was Abraham
37:84  when he came unto his Lord with a sound heart
37:85  when he said unto his father and his people, “What do you worship
37:86  Is it a perversion, gods apart from God, that you desire
37:87  What, then, think you of the Lord of the worlds?
37:88  Then he cast a glance at the star
37:89  and said, “Truly I am sick.
37:90  But they turned their backs on him
37:91  Then he went quietly to their gods and said, “Will you not eat
37:92  What ails you that you speak not?
37:93  Then he turned upon them, striking with his right hand
37:94  Then they came to him rushing
37:95  He said, “Do you worship that which you carve
37:96  while God created you and that which you make?
37:97  They said, “Erect a building for him and cast him into the fire.
37:98  They desired to scheme against him, so We made them the lowest
37:99  And he said, “Truly I am going unto my Lord. He will guide me
37:100  My Lord, give unto me from among the righteous.
37:101  So We gave him glad tidings of a gentle son
37:102  When he had become old enough to partake of his father’s endeavors, Abraham said, “O my son! I see while dreaming that I am to sacrifice you. So consider, what do you see?” He replied, “O my father! Do as you are commanded. You will find me, God willing, among those who are patient.
37:103  But when they had submitted and Abraham had laid him upon his forehead
37:104  We called unto him, “O Abraham
37:105  Thou hast been true to the vision.” Thus indeed do We recompense the virtuous
37:106  Truly this was the manifest trial
37:107  Then We ransomed him with a great sacrifice
37:108  And We left [a blessing] upon him among later generations
37:109  “Peace be upon Abraham.
37:110  Thus do We recompense the virtuous
37:111  Truly he was among Our believing servants
37:112  And We gave him glad tidings of Isaac, a prophet from among the righteous
37:113  And We blessed him and Isaac. And among their progeny are the virtuous and those who clearly wrong themselves
37:114  And We were gracious unto Moses and Aaron
37:115  We saved them and their people from great distres
37:116  and helped them, so that they were the victors
37:117  And We gave the two of them the Book that makes clear
37:118  and guided the two of them upon the straight path
37:119  And We left [a blessing] upon them among later generations
37:120  “Peace be upon Moses and Aaron.
37:121  Thus indeed do We recompense the virtuous
37:122  Truly they were among Our believing servants
37:123  And truly Elias was among the message bearer
37:124  when he said to his people, “Will you not reverence
37:125  Do you call upon Baal and leave the most beautiful of creators
37:126  God is your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of old.
37:127  But they denied him; so they are surely to be arraigned
37:128  Not so for God’s sincere servants
37:129  And We left [a blessing] upon him among later generations
37:130  “Peace be upon Elias.
37:131  Thus indeed do We recompense the virtuous
37:132  Truly he was among Our believing servants
37:133  And truly Lot was among the message bearers
37:134  Behold! We saved him and his family all together
37:135  save for an old woman who was among those who lagged behind
37:136  Then We destroyed the others
37:137  And truly you pass by them in the mornin
37:138  and at night. Do you not understand
37:139  And truly Jonah was among the message bearers
37:140  Behold! He fled to the full-laden ship
37:141  and then cast lots and was among those rejected
37:142  Then the fish swallowed him, for he was blameworthy
37:143  And had he not been among those who glorify
37:144  he would have tarried in its belly till the Day they are resurrected
37:145  So We cast him, sick, upon the barren shore
37:146  And We caused a gourd tree to grow over him
37:147  Then We sent him unto a hundred thousand or more
37:148  And they believed; so We granted them enjoyment for a while
37:149  So ask them, does your Lord have daughters while they have sons
37:150  Or did We create the angels female, while they were witnesses
37:151  Behold! It is of their own perversion that they say
37:152  “God has begotten,” while truly they are liars
37:153  Has He chosen daughters over sons
37:154  What ails you? How do you judge
37:155  Do you not reflect
37:156  Or have you a manifest authority
37:157  Bring your Book, then, if you are truthful
37:158  They have made kinship between Him and the jinn—yet the jinn know that they will surely be arraigned
37:159  Glory be to God above that which they ascribe
37:160  Not so for God’s sincere servants
37:161  For truly neither you nor that which you worshi
37:162  can tempt any against Him
37:163  save he who is to burn in Hellfire
37:164  There is none among us, but that he has a known station
37:165  And truly we are those who are ranged [in ranks]
37:166  Truly we are those who glorify
37:167  Indeed, they used to say
37:168  “If only we had a reminder from those of old
37:169  then we would indeed be God’s sincere servants.
37:170  But they disbelieved in it. So soon they will know
37:171  for indeed Our Word has already gone forth unto Our message bearer
37:172  that they will surely be helped
37:173  and that Our host will surely be victorious
37:174  So turn away from them for a time
37:175  and observe them; for they will soon observe
37:176  Do they seek to hasten Our Punishment
37:177  When it alights in their very midst, evil will be the morning of those who were warned
37:178  So turn away from them for a time
37:179  and observe; for they will soon observe
37:180  Glory be to thy Lord, the Lord of Might, above that which they ascribe
37:181  Peace be upon the message bearers
37:182  And praise be to God, Lord of the worlds
