The Study Quran rendition of Surah Those Who Set The Ranks, Drawn up in Ranks, The Rangers(as-Saffat)
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
