Muhammad Sarwar rendition of Surah Those Who Set The Ranks, Drawn up in Ranks, The Rangers(as-Saffat)
37:1 I swear by (the angels) who stand in ranks
37:2 by those who drive away the devil (to protect Our revelation)
37:3 and those who recite Our revelations
37:4 that your Lord is the only Lord
37:5 He is the Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, the Lord of the Eastern regions
37:6 We have decked the lower heavens with star
37:7 to protect them from the rebellious satan
37:8 The devils cannot hear those high above. They would be struck from all side
37:9 and driven away to suffer the necessary torment
37:10 Some of them who stealthily steal words from the heavens are pursued by a glistening flame
37:11 (Muhammad), ask them, "Have they (people) been created stronger than what We have created?" We have created them from moist clay
37:12 (Muhammad), you will be surprised that they still mock (God's revelations)
37:13 They pay no attention when they are reminde
37:14 and when they see a miracle, they moc
37:15 it and say, "It is only plain magic"
37:16 They say, "Shall we be brought to life again after we die and turn into dust and bones
37:17 Will our forefathers also be brought to life again?"
37:18 Say, "You will certainly be brought back to life in disgrace"
37:19 The Day of Judgment will come within a single roar and they will remain gazing at it
37:20 They will say, "Woe to us!" (They will be told), "This is the day of receiving recompense"
37:21 This is the Day of Judgment in which you disbelieved
37:22 (God will command the angels), "Gather together the unjust, their spouses, and what they had worshippe
37:23 besides God, and show them the way of hell
37:24 Stop them. They must be questioned."
37:25 They will be asked, "Why do you not help each other?"
37:26 In fact, on that day they will be submissive
37:27 They will turn to each other saying
37:28 "It was you who tried to mislead us from righteousness"
37:29 Others will respond, "It was you who did not want to have any faith
37:30 We had no authority over you, in fact, you were a rebellious people
37:31 Thus, the words of Our Lord about us have come true and now we are suffering the torment
37:32 We mislead you and we ourselves had also gone astray."
37:33 On that day they will all share the torment
37:34 This is how We deal with the criminals
37:35 They were the ones, who on being told, "God is only One," become puffed-up with prid
37:36 and said, "Should we give up our idols for the sake of an insane poet"
37:37 In fact, he had brought them the truth and had acknowledged the Messengers (who were sent before him)
37:38 (They will be told), "You will certainly suffer the painful tormen
37:39 and will be recompensed only for what you deserve
37:40 But the sincere servants of Go
37:41 will have their determined sustenanc
37:42 and fruits while they are honored
37:43 (They will live) in the bountiful gardens
37:44 on couches facing each other
37:45 They will be served with a cup full of crystal clear wine
37:46 delicious to those who drink i
37:47 but not harmful or intoxicating
37:48 They will have with them loving wives with big black and white eye
37:49 who are as chaste as sheltered eggs
37:50 They will turn to each other and ask questions
37:51 One of them will say, "I had a companion who asked me
37:52 'Do you believe in the Day of Judgment
37:53 Shall we be recompensed for our deeds after we die and become bones and dust
37:54 Do you want to see him?' "
37:55 He will look down and see him in hell
37:56 He will say to his friend in hell, "By God, you almost destroyed me
37:57 Had I not the guidance of my Lord, I would certainly have been brought into torment"
37:58 He will ask his companion, "Did you not say that there would only be one deat
37:59 and that we would not be punished?"
37:60 This is certainly the greatest triump
37:61 for which one must strive hard
37:62 Is this not a better reward than the tree of Zaqqu
37:63 which We have made as a torment for the unjust
37:64 (Zaqqum) is a tree which grows from the deepest part of hell
37:65 and its fruits are like the heads of devils
37:66 The dwellers of hell will eat that fruit and fill-up their bellies
37:67 Then they will have on top of it a mixture of boiling water
37:68 They can only return to hell
37:69 They found their father going astra
37:70 and rushed to follow them
37:71 Most of the ancient people had also gone astray
37:72 We had certainly sent warners to them
37:73 See how terrible was the end of those who were warned
37:74 Only Our sincere servants were saved
37:75 Noah called for help. How blessed was the answer which he received
37:76 We rescued him and his people from the greatest afflictio
37:77 and We made his offspring the only survivors
37:78 We perpetuated his praise in later generations
37:79 Peace be with Noah among all men in the worlds
37:80 Thus do We reward the righteous ones
37:81 He was one of Our believing servants
37:82 We drowned all the others (besides Noah and his people)
37:83 Abraham was one of his followers
37:84 He turned to his Lord with a sound hear
37:85 and asked his father and his people, "What is that you worship
37:86 Do you want to worship false idols as your lords besides God
37:87 What do you think about the Lord of the Universe?"
37:88 The people invited him to attend their feast). Then he looked at the star
37:89 and said, "I am sick!"
37:90 All the people turned away from hi
37:91 and he turned to their idols and asked them, "Do you eat
37:92 Why do you not speak?"
37:93 He struck them with his right hand
37:94 Thereupon the people came running to him
37:95 He said, "How can you worship what you yourselves have carve
37:96 even though God created both you and that which you have made?"
37:97 They said, "Let us build a fire and throw him into the flames"
37:98 They plotted against him, but We brought humiliation upon them
37:99 (Abraham) said, "I will go to my Lord who will guide me"
37:100 Abraham prayed, "Lord, grant me a righteous son"
37:101 We gave him the glad news of the birth of a forbearing son
37:102 When his son was old enough to work with him, he said, "My son, I have had a dream that I must sacrifice you. What do you think of this?" He replied, "Father, fulfill whatever you are commanded to do and you will find me patient, by the will of God"
37:103 When they both agreed and Abraham had lain down his son on the side of his face (for slaughtering)
37:104 We called to him, "Abraham
37:105 you have fulfilled what you were commanded to do in your dream." Thus do We reward the righteous ones
37:106 It was certainly an open trial
37:107 We ransomed his son with a great sacrific
37:108 and perpetuated his praise in later generations
37:109 Peace be with Abraham
37:110 Thus, do We reward the righteous ones
37:111 He was one of Our believing servants
37:112 We gave him the glad news of the birth of Isaac, one of the righteous Prophets
37:113 We had blessed him and Isaac. Some of their offspring were righteous and others were openly unjust to themselves
37:114 We certainly bestowed Our favor upon Moses and Aaro
37:115 and saved them and their people from great distress
37:116 We helped them and they were victorious
37:117 We gave them the enlightening Book
37:118 guided them to the right path
37:119 and perpetuated their praise in later generations
37:120 Peace be with Moses and Aaron
37:121 Thus do We reward the righteous ones
37:122 They were two of Our believing servants
37:123 Elias was certainly a Messenger
37:124 He told his people, "Why do you not have fear of God
37:125 Do you worship Ba`al and abandon the Best Creator
37:126 who is your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers?"
37:127 They called him a liar. Thus, all of them will suffer tormen
37:128 except the sincere servants of God
37:129 We perpetuated his praise in the later generations
37:130 Peace be with the followers of Elias
37:131 In this way do We reward the righteous ones
37:132 He was one of Our believing servants
37:133 Lot was certainly a Messenger
37:134 We rescued him and his whole family
37:135 except for an old woman who remained behind
37:136 Then We totally destroyed the others
37:137 You pass by (their ruined town) in the morning and at night
37:138 Will you then not understand
37:139 Jonah was certainly a Messenger
37:140 He abandoned his peopl
37:141 and sailed away in a laden ship, wherein people cast lots. Because he lost, he was thrown into the water
37:142 The fish swallowed him up and he deserved (all this)
37:143 Had he not glorified God
37:144 he would certainly have remained inside the fish until the Day of Resurrection
37:145 We cast him out of the fish unto dry land and he was sick
37:146 We made a plant of gourd grow up for him
37:147 We sent him to a hundred thousand or more people
37:148 They believed in him so We granted them enjoyment for an appointed time
37:149 (Muhammad), ask them, "Do daughters belong to your Lord and sons to them
37:150 Have We created the angels as females before their very eyes
37:151 It is only because of their false invention that they say
37:152 'God has begotten a son.' They are certainly liars
37:153 Has He chosen daughters in preference to sons
37:154 Woe to you! How terrible is your Judgment
37:155 Do you not understand
37:156 Do you have clear authority
37:157 Bring your book if what you say is true
37:158 They have said that there is a relationship between Him and the jinn. The jinn certainly know that they will all be brought to suffer torment
37:159 God is too glorious to be described as they describe Hi
37:160 except the servants of God, sincere and devoted
37:161 You and whatever you worshi
37:162 cannot mislead anyon
37:163 except those who are doomed to enter hell
37:164 The angels say, "Each of us has an appointed place
37:165 We stand in ranks (for prayer
37:166 and we glorify God"
37:167 Even though they (unbelievers) say
37:168 "Had we received guidance from the people living before us
37:169 we would have certainly been sincere servants of God"
37:170 They have rejected the Quran. They will soon know the consequences (of their disbelief)
37:171 We decreed that Our Messenger servant
37:172 will certainly be victoriou
37:173 and that Our army will be triumphant
37:174 (Muhammad), stay away from them for a whil
37:175 and watch them. They, too, will watch
37:176 Do they want to suffer Our torment immediately
37:177 When it descends into their courtyard, it will be terrible for those who have already been warned
37:178 Stay away from them for a whil
37:179 and watch. They, too, will watch
37:180 Your Lord, the Lord of Honor, is too exalted to be considered as they describe Him
37:181 Peace be with the Messengers (of God)
37:182 It is only God, the Lord of the Universe, who deserves all praise
