37:1  By those set in ranks, ranging.
37:2  By the drivers, driving.
37:3  By the reciters of the reminder.
37:4  Indeed, your god is surely one,
37:5  Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between both of them, and the Lord of the easts.
37:6  Indeed, We adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment, the stars.
37:7  And a guard from every rebellious devil,
37:8  They may not listen to the exalted chiefs; for they are hurled at from every side,
37:9  Driven off, and for them is lasting punishment;
37:10  Except him who snatched the hearing, and there followed him a firebrand with piercing brightness.
37:11  So ask them for a decision: Are they stronger as a creation, or those whom We created? Indeed, We created them of sticky clay.
37:12  Nay, you wonder and they jest.
37:13  And when they are reminded they do not remember;
37:14  And when they see a sign they make a jest,
37:15  And they say, 'This is not except clear magic.
37:16  When we are dead, and have become dust and bones, shall we indeed be raised up?
37:17  And our fathers, the former people?'
37:18  Say, 'Yes, and you will be contemptible.'
37:19  And it shall only be one cry, and behold they, they will look,
37:20  And they will say, 'O woe to us! This is the Day of Judgment.'
37:21  This is the Day of Decision, which you used to deny.
37:22  Gather those who did wrong, and their spouses, and what they used to serve
37:23  Beside God, and guide them to the way of Hellfire,
37:24  And stop them; indeed, they will be questioned.
37:25  'What ails you, you do not help one another?'
37:26  Nay, they are today submitting,
37:27  And some of them advanced towards some, questioning one another,
37:28  They said, 'Indeed, you came to us from the right.'
37:29  They said, 'Nay, you were not believers,
37:30  Nor had we any authority over you; nay you were an immoderate people.
37:31  And the speech of our Lord shall be due for us; indeed, we shall surely taste;
37:32  We did seduce you - indeed, we were erring.'
37:33  Then indeed, on that day they shall share the punishment:
37:34  Indeed, thus We do with the sinners.
37:35  Indeed, when it was said to them, 'There is no god but God,' they were big with pride,
37:36  And they say, 'Shall we leave our gods for a mad poet?'
37:37  Nay, he came with the truth, and verified the messengers;
37:38  Indeed, you are surely tasters of the painful punishment,
37:39  And you will not be recompensed except what you used to do.
37:40  Except God's sincere servants,
37:41  Those, for them is a known provision,
37:42  Fruits, and they shall be honoured
37:43  In the Gardens of pleasure,
37:44  Upon couches facing each other;
37:45  They shall be served all round with a cup of wine from a flowing spring,
37:46  White and delicious to those who drink,
37:47  No headache in it nor will they be intoxicated from it;
37:48  And with them, women restraining their glances, wide-eyed;
37:49  As though they were a sheltered egg;
37:50  And some of them advanced towards some, questioning one another;
37:51  And a speaker amongst them shall say, 'Indeed, I had a companion,
37:52  Who used to say, "Are you indeed of those who believe?
37:53  When we are dead, and have become dust and bones, shall we be surely judged?"'
37:54  He will say, 'Are you looking?'
37:55  And he shall look and see him in the midst of Hell.
37:56  He shall say, 'By God, you almost ruined me.
37:57  And if not for the favour of my Lord, I should have been among the arraigned.'
37:58  'Shall we not die
37:59  Except our first death? And we are not with those who are punished?
37:60  Indeed, this surely it is the great success.
37:61  For the like of this then let the workers work.'
37:62  Is that better as an entertainment, or the tree of Zaqqum?
37:63  Indeed, we have made it a trial to the wrongdoers.
37:64  Indeed, it is a tree that comes forth in the bottom of Hellfire;
37:65  Its spathe is as if it were the heads of devils;
37:66  And indeed, they surely eat from it, and fill the bellies from it.
37:67  Then indeed, for them upon it is surely a mixture of hot water;
37:68  Then indeed, their return is surely to the Hellfire.
37:69  Indeed, they found their fathers erring,
37:70  And they hurried on in their tracks.
37:71  And surely, certainly most of the former people erred before them,
37:72  And surely, certainly We sent among them warners.
37:73  Then see how was the end of those who were warned,
37:74  Except God's sincere servants.
37:75  And surely, certainly Noah called Us, and surely excellent are the responders;
37:76  And We saved him and his people from the great trouble;
37:77  And We made his offspring, they are the remaining;
37:78  And We left for him amongst posterity
37:79  'Peace be upon Noah in the worlds;'
37:80  Indeed, thus We reward the good-doers;
37:81  Indeed, he was of Our believing servants.
37:82  Then We drowned the others.
37:83  And indeed, of his sect was surely Abraham;
37:84  When he came to his Lord with a sound heart;
37:85  When he said to his father and his people, 'What is it you serve?
37:86  Do you desire a lie - gods beside God?
37:87  What then is your thought about the Lord of the worlds?'
37:88  And he cast a glance at the stars
37:89  And he said, 'Indeed, I am sick.'
37:90  And they turned their backs upon him fleeing.
37:91  And he went aside unto their gods and said, 'Will you not eat?
37:92  What ails you that you will not speak?'
37:93  And he went aside to them striking with the right hand.
37:94  And they advanced towards him, hastening.
37:95  He said, 'Do you serve what you carve out,
37:96  When God has created you, and what you make?'
37:97  They said, 'Build for him a building and fling him in the flaming Hell.'
37:98  And they desired to plot against him, but We made them inferior.
37:99  And he said, 'Indeed, I am going to my Lord, soon He will guide me.
37:100  My Lord! Bestow upon me of the righteous.'
37:101  And We gave him glad tidings of a clement boy.
37:102  And when he attained to working with him, he said, 'O my son! Indeed, I saw in the dream that I sacrifice you, so look what do you see.' He said, 'O my father! Do what you are commanded. Soon you will find me, if God wills, of the patient.'
37:103  And when they had submitted, and he had thrown him down upon his forehead,
37:104  And We called to him, 'O Abraham!
37:105  You have already verified the vision; indeed, thus We reward those who do well.
37:106  Indeed, this, surely it is the clear trial.'
37:107  And We ransomed him with a mighty victim;
37:108  And We left for him amongst posterity,
37:109  'Peace be upon Abraham;'
37:110  Thus We reward the good-doers;
37:111  Indeed, he was of Our servants who believe.
37:112  And We gave him glad tidings of Isaac, a prophet among the righteous;
37:113  And We blessed him and Isaac; - and of their offspring is one who does good, and one who clearly wrongs himself.
37:114  And surely, certainly We bestowed favour upon Moses and Aaron.
37:115  And We saved them and their people from the great trouble,
37:116  And We helped them, so they were the overcomers;
37:117  And We gave them both the perspicuous Book;
37:118  And We guided them to the straight way;
37:119  And We left for them amongst posterity,
37:120  'Peace be upon Moses and Aaron.'
37:121  Indeed, thus We reward the good-doers;
37:122  Indeed, they were both of Our servants who believe.
37:123  And indeed Ilyas was surely of the messengers;
37:124  When he said to his people, 'Will you not fear?
37:125  Do you call upon Baal and leave the best of creators,
37:126  God your Lord and the Lord of your fathers, the former people?'
37:127  But they called him liar; so indeed, they shall surely be arraigned,
37:128  Except God's sincere servants.
37:129  And We left for him amongst posterity,
37:130  'Peace be upon Ilyas.'
37:131  Indeed, thus We reward the good-doers;
37:132  Indeed, he was of Our servants who believe.
37:133  And indeed, Lot was surely among the messengers;
37:134  When We saved him and his people altogether,
37:135  Except an old woman amongst those who lingered;
37:136  Then We destroyed the others;
37:137  And indeed, you surely pass by them morning
37:138  And in the night; have you then no sense?
37:139  And indeed, Jonah was amongst the messengers;
37:140  When he ran away into the laden ship;
37:141  And he cast lots and was of the rebutted;
37:142  And a fish swallowed him, and he was to be blamed;
37:143  And had it not been that he was of those who glorify
37:144  He would surely have tarried in its belly to the day they are resurrected.
37:145  But We cast him on the naked land; and he was sick;
37:146  And We made to grow over him a tree of gourd;
37:147  And We sent him to a hundred thousand or more,
37:148  And they believed; and We gave them enjoyment for a while.
37:149  So ask them for a decision: Are the daughters for your Lord and the sons for them?
37:150  Or have We created the angels females while they are witnesses?
37:151  Is it not of their lie that they say,
37:152  'God has begotten?' Indeed, they are liars.
37:153  Has He preferred daughters to sons?
37:154  What ails you? How do you judge?
37:155  Then will you not remember,
37:156  Or have you clear authority?
37:157  Then bring your book if you are truthful.
37:158  And they made a relationship between Him and the jinns. And surely, certainly the jinns knew indeed they will surely be arraigned.
37:159  Glory be to God above what they attribute.
37:160  Except God's sincere servants.
37:161  So indeed, you and what you worship
37:162  Shall not tempt against Him
37:163  Except he who shall broil in Hellfire;
37:164  And there is none among us except for him is a known position,
37:165  And indeed we, surely we are those in ranks,
37:166  And indeed we, surely we are those who glorify.
37:167  And indeed, they used to surely say,
37:168  'If that with us was a reminder from the former people,
37:169  Surely we would be God's sincere servants.'
37:170  Then they disbelieved in it; so soon they will know.
37:171  And surely, certainly Our word has already preceded to Our servants, the messengers,
37:172  Indeed they, surely they are those who shall be helped;
37:173  And indeed, Our host, surely they are the overcomers.
37:174  So turn away from them for a time,
37:175  And look upon them, for soon they shall look.
37:176  Would they hasten on Our punishment?
37:177  But when it descends in their court, evil will the morning be of those who have been warned.
37:178  So turn away from them for a time;
37:179  And look, for soon they shall look.
37:180  Glory be to your Lord, the Lord of glory, above what they attribute.
37:181  And peace be upon the messengers
37:182  And praise be to God, the Lord of the worlds.
