Abdel Haleem rendition of Surah Those Who Set The Ranks, Drawn up in Ranks, The Rangers(as-Saffat)
37:1 By those [angels] ranged in rows
37:2 who rebuke reproachfull
37:3 and recite God’s word
37:4 truly your God is One
37:5 Lord of the heavens and earth and everything between them, Lord of every sunrise
37:6 We have adorned the lowest heaven with stars
37:7 and made them a safeguard against every rebellious devil
37:8 they cannot eavesdrop on the Higher Assembly––pelted from every side
37:9 driven away, they will have perpetual torment–&ndash
37:10 if any [of them] stealthily snatches away a fragment, he will be pursued by a piercing flame
37:11 So [Prophet], ask the disbelievers: is it harder to create them than other beings We have created? We created them from sticky clay
37:12 You marvel as they scoff
37:13 take no heed when they are warned
37:14 and resort to ridicule when they see a sign
37:15 saying, ‘This is no more than blatant sorcery.&rsquo
37:16 ‘What! After we have died and become dust and bones, shall we really be raised up again
37:17 along with our forefathers?&rsquo
37:18 Say, ‘Yes indeed, and you will be humiliated.&rsquo
37:19 Just one blast and––lo and behold!––they will loo
37:20 and say, ‘Woe to us! This is the Day of Judgement.&rsquo
37:21 [It will be said], ‘This is the Day of Decision, which you used to deny
37:22 [Angels], gather together those who did wrong, and others like them, as well as whatever they worshippe
37:23 beside God, lead them all to the path of Hell
37:24 and halt them for questioning
37:25 “Why do you not support each other now?” ’–&ndash
37:26 no indeed! They will be in complete submission on that Day–&ndash
37:27 and they will turn on one another accusingly
37:28 They will say, ‘You came to us from a position of power.&rsquo
37:29 They will say, ‘No! It was you who would not believe
37:30 we had no power over you- and you were already exceeding all limits
37:31 Our Lord’s sentence on us is just and we must all taste the punishment
37:32 We led you astray as we ourselves were astray.&rsquo
37:33 On that Day they will all share the torment
37:34 this is how We deal with the guilty
37:35 Whenever it was said to them, ‘There is no deity but God,’ they became arrogant
37:36 and said, ‘Are we to forsake our gods for a mad poet?&rsquo
37:37 ‘No: he brought the truth and confirmed the earlier messengers
37:38 you will taste the painful torment
37:39 and be repaid only according to your deeds.&rsquo
37:40 Not so God’s true servants
37:41 They will have familiar provisions–&ndash
37:42 fruits- and will be honoure
37:43 in gardens of delight
37:44 seated on couches, facing one another
37:45 A drink will be passed round among them from a flowing spring
37:46 white, delicious to those who taste it
37:47 causing no headiness or intoxication
37:48 With them will be spouses- modest of gaze and beautiful of eye
37:49 like protected eggs
37:50 They will turn to one another with questions
37:51 one will say, ‘I had a close companion on eart
37:52 who used to ask me, “Do you really believe tha
37:53 after we die and become dust and bone, we shall be brought for judgement?”&rsquo
37:54 Then he will say, ‘Shall we look for him?&rsquo
37:55 He will look down and see him in the midst of the Fire
37:56 and say to him, ‘By God, you almost brought me to ruin
37:57 Had it not been for the grace of my Lord, I too would have been taken to Hell.&rsquo
37:58 Then he will say [to his blessed companions], ‘Are we never to die again after our earlier death
37:59 Shall we never suffer
37:60 This truly is the supreme triumph!&rsquo
37:61 Everyone should strive to attain this
37:62 Is this the better welcome, or the tree of Zaqqum
37:63 which we have made a test for the evildoers
37:64 This tree grows in the heart of the blazing Fire
37:65 and its fruits are like devils’ heads
37:66 They will fill their bellies eating from it
37:67 then drink scalding water on top of it
37:68 then return to the blazing Fire
37:69 They found their forefathers astray
37:70 and rushed to follow in their footsteps- before the disbelievers [of Mecca]
37:71 most men in the past went astray
37:72 even though We sent messengers to warn them
37:73 See how those who were warned met their end
37:74 Not so the true servants of God
37:75 Noah cried to Us, and how excellent was Our response
37:76 We saved him and his people from great distress
37:77 We let his offspring remain on the earth
37:78 We let him be praised by later generations
37:79 ‘Peace be upon Noah among all the nations!&rsquo
37:80 This is how We reward those who do good
37:81 he was truly one of Our faithful servants
37:82 We drowned the rest
37:83 Abraham was of the same faith
37:84 he came to his Lord with a devoted heart
37:85 He said to his father and his people, ‘What are you worshipping
37:86 How can you choose false gods instead of the true God
37:87 So what is your opinion about the Lord of all the Worlds?&rsquo
37:88 then he looked up to the stars
37:89 He said, ‘I am sick,&rsquo
37:90 so [his people] turned away from him and left
37:91 He turned to their gods and said
37:92 ‘Do you not eat? Why do you not speak?&rsquo
37:93 then he turned and struck them with his right arm
37:94 His people hurried towards him
37:95 but he said, ‘How can you worship things you carve with your own hands
37:96 when it is God who has created you and all your handiwork?&rsquo
37:97 They said, ‘Build a pyre and throw him into the blazing fire.&rsquo
37:98 They wanted to harm him, but We humiliated them
37:99 He said, ‘I will go to my Lord: He is sure to guide me
37:100 Lord, grant me a righteous son,&rsquo
37:101 so We gave him the good news that he would have a patient son
37:102 When the boy was old enough to work with his father, Abraham said, ‘My son, I have seen myself sacrificing you in a dream. What do you think?’ He said, ‘Father, do as you are commanded and, God willing, you will find me steadfast.&rsquo
37:103 When they had both submitted to God, and he had laid his son down on the side of his face
37:104 We called out to him, ‘Abraham
37:105 you have fulfilled the dream.’ This is how We reward those who do good
37:106 it was a test to prove [their true characters]
37:107 We ransomed his son with a momentous sacrifice
37:108 and We let him be praised by succeeding generations
37:109 ‘Peace be upon Abraham!&rsquo
37:110 This is how We reward those who do good
37:111 truly he was one of Our faithful servants
37:112 We gave Abraham the good news of Isaac- a prophet and a righteous man
37:113 and blessed him and Isaac too: some of their offspring were good, but some clearly wronged themselves
37:114 We also bestowed Our favour on Moses and Aaron
37:115 We saved them and their people from great distress
37:116 We helped them, so they were the ones to succeed
37:117 We gave them the Scripture that makes things clear
37:118 We guided them to the right path
37:119 We let them be praised by succeeding generations
37:120 ‘Peace be upon Moses and Aaron!&rsquo
37:121 This is how We reward those who do good
37:122 truly they were among Our faithful servants
37:123 Elijah too was one of the messengers
37:124 He said to his people, ‘Have you no fear of God
37:125 How can you invoke Baal and forsake the Most Gracious Creator
37:126 God, your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers?&rsquo
37:127 but they rejected him. They will be brought to punishment as a consequence
37:128 not so the true servants of God
37:129 We let him be praised by succeeding generations
37:130 ‘Peace be to Elijah!&rsquo
37:131 This is how We reward those who do good
37:132 truly he was one of Our faithful servants
37:133 Lot was also one of the messengers
37:134 We saved him and all his family
37:135 except for an old woman who stayed behind
37:136 and We destroyed the rest
37:137 You [people] pass by their ruins mornin
37:138 and night: will you not take heed
37:139 Jonah too was one of the messengers
37:140 He fled to the overloaded ship
37:141 They cast lots, he suffered defeat
37:142 and a great fish swallowed him, for he had committed blameworthy acts
37:143 If he had not been one of those who glorified God
37:144 he would have stayed in its belly until the Day when all are raised up
37:145 but We cast him out, sick, on to a barren shore
37:146 and made a gourd tree grow above him
37:147 We sent him to a hundred thousand people or more
37:148 They believed, so We let them live out their lives
37:149 Now [Muhammad], ask the disbelievers: is it true that your Lord has daughters, while they choose sons for themselves
37:150 Did We create the angels as females while they were watching
37:151 No indeed! It is one of their lies when they say
37:152 ‘God has begotten.’ How they lie
37:153 Did He truly choose daughters in preference to sons
37:154 What is the matter with you? How do you form your judgements
37:155 Do you not reflect
37:156 Do you perhaps have clear authority
37:157 Bring your scriptures, if you are telling the truth
37:158 They claim that He has kinship with the jinn, yet the jinn themselves know that they will be brought before Him
37:159 God is far above what they attribute to Him
37:160 the true servants of God do not do such things
37:161 and neither you nor what you worshi
37:162 can lure away from God an
37:163 except those who will burn in Hell
37:164 [The angels say], ‘Every single one of us has his appointed place
37:165 we are ranged in ranks
37:166 We glorify God.&rsquo
37:167 [The disbelievers] used to say
37:168 ‘If only we had a scripture like previous people
37:169 we would be true servants of God,&rsquo
37:170 yet now they reject [the Quran]. They will soon realize
37:171 Our word has already been given to Our servants the messengers
37:172 it is they who will be helped
37:173 and the ones who support Our cause will be the winners
37:174 So [Prophet] turn away from the disbelievers for a while
37:175 Watch them: they will soon see
37:176 Do they really wish to hasten Our punishment
37:177 When it descends on their courtyards, how ter-rible that morning will be for those who were warned
37:178 [Prophet], turn away from the disbelievers for a while
37:179 Watch them: they will soon see
37:180 Your Lord, the Lord of Glory, is far above what they attribute to Him
37:181 Peace be upon the messenger
37:182 and praise be to God the Lord of all the Worlds
