Farook Malik rendition of Surah Those Who Set The Ranks, Drawn up in Ranks, The Rangers(as-Saffat)
37:1 - Dialogue between the followers and the leaders who mislead them. 37 AS-SAFFAT - IN RANKS In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful. By those who range themselves in rank
37:2 and by those who cast out demons
37:3 and by those who proclaim the message
37:4 : surely your God is One
37:5 the Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all that lies between them, and the Lord of the easts
37:6 We have indeed decked the worldly heaven with beautiful star
37:7 and have secured it against all obstinate rebellious Satans
37:8 They cannot even hear the words of the exalted assembly of angels and they are darted at from every sid
37:9 they are repulsed and are under a constant chastisement
37:10 Eavesdroppers are persuaded by a flaming fire of piercing brightness
37:11 Ask them: "What is more difficult - their creation or the rest of Our creation? - Them We have created out of a sticky clay
37:12 You marvel at the wonders of Allah’s creation, while they ridicule at it
37:13 When they are admonished, they pay no heed
37:14 and when they see a sign, they mock at i
37:15 and say: "This is nothing but plain sorcery
37:16 What! When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we be raised to life agai
37:17 - we and also our forefathers of the ancient time?"
37:18 Tell them: "Yes and you shall be held up to shame."
37:19 It will be just a single cry, and they will see it all with their own eyes
37:20 Ah, woe to us! They shall exclaim, "this is the Day of Judgement!"
37:21 It will be said: "Yes, this is the same Day of Judgement which you used to deny."
37:22 It will be commanded: "Gather all the wrongdoers, their spouses and those whom they used to worshi
37:23 besides Allah and show them the way to hell
37:24 When they will all be gathered and angels will start pushing them towards hell, Allah shall say: "Stop for a while, they have to be questioned
37:25 What is the matter with you today that you do not help each other
37:26 Nay! On that Day they shall all be submissive
37:27 Some of them will step forward to question one another
37:28 The followers will say to their leaders: "It was you who used to come at us from the right hand and forced us towards the wrong way."
37:29 They will reply: "Nay! But it was you who had no faith
37:30 We had no power over you, the fact is that you were an inordinate people
37:31 true is the verdict which Our Lord has passed upon us, we shall indeed taste the punishment of our sins
37:32 We misled you, for we ourselves were astray."
37:33 So on that Day they shall all be partners in the punishment
37:34 Thus, shall We deal with the criminals
37:35 for when they were told: "There is no god except Allah," they used to puff themselves up with prid
37:36 and say: "What! Should we give up our gods for the sake of a mad poet?"
37:37 Whereas he had come with the truth and had confirmed the message of prior Messengers
37:38 Then it will be said: "You are surely going to taste the painful punishment
37:39 and this reward is nothing except what you had done
37:40 But the sincere devotees of Alla
37:41 shall have familiar sustenanc
37:42 - fruits, and shall be honore
37:43 in the gardens of delight
37:44 Reclining face to face upon soft couches
37:45 they shall be served with goblets filled at a fountain of wine
37:46 a crystal-white drink, delicious to those who drink it
37:47 It will neither dull their senses nor they will become drunk
37:48 And beside them there will be bashful, dark big beautiful-eyed virgins
37:49 as if they were delicate eggs closely guarded
37:50 Some of them will be asking questions to others
37:51 One of them will say: "I had a frien
37:52 who used to ask: ‘Are you really of those who affirm (the message of Islam)
37:53 When we are dead and turned to dust and bones, shall we ever be brought to judgement?’"
37:54 It will be said: "Would you like to see him?"
37:55 He will look down and see his friend in the midst of hellfire
37:56 Then he will say: "By Allah! You had almost ruined me
37:57 Had it not been for the grace of my Lord, I should certainly have been among those who are brought there
37:58 Is it not so that we shall not di
37:59 after our first death and that we shall not be chastised?"
37:60 Most surely it is a mighty achievement
37:61 For such an end, let every one strive who wishes to strive
37:62 Is this a better entertainment or the tree of Zaqqum
37:63 Surely We have made this tree a trial for the wrongdoers
37:64 Surely it is a tree that grows in the bottom of the hellfire
37:65 bearing fruits as if they were heads of Satans
37:66 on it they shall feed and with it they shall fill their bellies
37:67 Then on top of that, they will be given a concoction made from boiling water
37:68 Then to hellfire they shall be returned
37:69 In fact, they found their fathers on the wrong path
37:70 and they are eagerly following their footsteps
37:71 Most of the ancients went astray before them
37:72 though We had sent Warners to them
37:73 See what was the end of those who had been forewarned: they all perished
37:74 except the sincere devotees of Allah
37:75 Noah prayed to Us; see how excellent was Our response to his prayer
37:76 We delivered him and his people from the mighty distress
37:77 and made his progeny to be the only survivors
37:78 and We left his good name among the later generations
37:79 SaLotation to Noah among the people of the worlds
37:80 Thus do We reward the righteous
37:81 Surely he was one of Our believing devotees
37:82 Then the rest We drowned in the great flood
37:83 Surely Abraham belonged to the first group
37:84 when he came to his Lord with a pure heart
37:85 Behold, he said to his father and to his people: "What are these that you worship
37:86 Would you serve false gods instead of Allah
37:87 What is your idea about the Lord of the worlds?"
37:88 Then he looked at the stars one tim
37:89 and said "I am feeling sick."
37:90 So his people left him behind and went away to their national fair
37:91 He sneaked into the temple of their gods and addressed them: "Why don’t you eat from these offerings before you
37:92 What is the matter with you that you don’t even speak?"
37:93 Then he fell upon them, smiting them with his right hand
37:94 The people came running to the scene
37:95 Would you worship that which you have carved with your own hands, he said
37:96 when Allah is the One Who created you and that which you have made
37:97 They said to one another: "Prepare for him a furnace and throw him into the blazing flames."
37:98 Thus did they scheme against him: but We humiliated them in their scheme
37:99 Abraham said: "I am going to take refuge with my Lord, He will surely guide me
37:100 O Lord! Grant me a righteous son."
37:101 So We gave him the good news of a gentle son
37:102 When he reached the age to work with him, Abraham said to him: "O my son! I have seen a vision that I should offer you as a sacrifice, now tell me what is your view." He replied: "O my father! Do as you are commanded: you will find me, if Allah so wills, of the patient."
37:103 And when they both submitted to Allah and Abraham laid down his son prostrate upon his forehead for sacrifice
37:104 We called out to him: "O Abraham stop
37:105 You have fulfilled your vision." Thus do We reward the righteous
37:106 That was indeed a manifest test
37:107 We ransomed his son for a great sacrific
37:108 and We left his good name among the later generations
37:109 SaLotation to Abraham
37:110 Thus We reward the righteous
37:111 Surely he was one of Our believing devotees
37:112 We gave him the good news of Isaac - a prophet - one of the righteous
37:113 We blessed him and Isaac both. Among their progeny there are some who are righteous and some who are clearly doing wrong to their own souls
37:114 We bestowed Our favor on Moses and Haroon
37:115 We delivered them with all their people from the mighty distress
37:116 We helped them so they became victorious
37:117 We gave them the Glorious Book (Torah)
37:118 and guided them both to the Right Way
37:119 We left their good names among the later generations
37:120 SaLotation to Moses and Haroon
37:121 Thus do We reward the righteous
37:122 Surely they were two of Our believing devotees
37:123 Ilyas (Elias) was surely one of Our Messengers
37:124 Behold, he said to his people: "Have you no fear of Allah
37:125 Would you invoke Bal (their invented god) and forsake the best of the Creator
37:126 - Allah - Who is your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers?"
37:127 But they denied him, so they will certainly be called to account
37:128 with the exception of sincere devotees of Allah
37:129 We left his good name among the later generations
37:130 SaLotation to Ilyas
37:131 Thus do We reward the righteous
37:132 He was surely one of Our believing devotees
37:133 Lot was one of Our Messengers
37:134 Behold, We delivered him and his whole famil
37:135 except an old woman who was among those who remained behind
37:136 and We destroyed the others
37:137 Surely you pass by their ruins by da
37:138 and by night. Will you not use your common sense
37:139 Jonah was surely one of Our Messengers
37:140 When he ran to the laden ship
37:141 took part in casting of lots, and was condemned
37:142 A whale swallowed him for he had become blameworthy
37:143 Had he not repented and became of those who glorify Allah
37:144 he would certainly have remained inside its belly till the Day of Resurrection
37:145 Then We cast him upon a desolate shore in a state of serious illnes
37:146 and caused a gourd plant to grow over him
37:147 Then We sent him to a nation of one hundred thousand people or more
37:148 They believed in him, so We permitted them to enjoy their life for a while
37:149 Just ask the unbelievers: Does it make any sense that their Lord should have daughters while they choose to have sons
37:150 Or is it that We created the angels as females and they were present at their creation
37:151 Surely they invent a lie when they say:
37:152 Allah has children. They are utter liars
37:153 Would He choose daughters rather than sons
37:154 What is the matter with you? How do you judge
37:155 Will you not take heed
37:156 Or do you have any proof of what you are saying
37:157 Show us your scriptures if you are truthful
37:158 They assert blood- relationship between Him and the jinns; and the jinns know quite well that they will be called to account
37:159 Glory be to Allah! He is free from what they ascribe to Hi
37:160 except His sincere devotees who do not attribute such things to Him
37:161 Therefore neither you nor those whom you worshi
37:162 can deceive anyone about Alla
37:163 except him who is destined for hell
37:164 The angels in fact say: "We each have our appointed place
37:165 We range ourselves in ranks for His servic
37:166 and we are surely those who declare His glory."
37:167 Before this, the same disbelievers used to say
37:168 If we had received a reminder which the earlier people had received
37:169 We certainly would have been sincere devotees of Allah
37:170 But now that the Qur’an has come, they reject it: but soon they will find out the consequences of this attitude
37:171 We have already promised Our servants whom We sent as Messenger
37:172 that they would certainly be helped
37:173 and that Our forces will surely be victorious
37:174 So give no heed to them for a while
37:175 you will see their downfall as they shall see your victory
37:176 Do they wish to hurry on Our punishment
37:177 But dreadful will be that morning, when it will descend in the courtyards of those who have been forewarned
37:178 So pay no heed to them for a while
37:179 You will surely see their downfall as they shall see your victory
37:180 Glory be to your Lord, the Lord of Honor, He is free from what they ascribe to Him
37:181 Peace be on the Messengers
37:182 and praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds
