37:1  By oath of those who establish proper ranks
37:2  And by oath of those who herd with a stern warning
37:3  And by oath of the groups that read the Qur’an
37:4  Indeed your God is surely only One
37:5  Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them - and the Lord of the sun’s rising points
37:6  We have indeed adorned the lowest heaven with stars as ornaments
37:7  And to protect it from every rebellious devil
37:8  They cannot listen to the speech of those on higher elevations and they are targeted from every side
37:9  To make them flee, and for them is a never-ending punishment
37:10  Except one who sometimes steals a part, so a blazing flame goes after him
37:11  Therefore ask them (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him), “Are they a stronger creation, or are other things of our creation, (the angels, the heavens etc.)?” We have indeed created them from sticky clay
37:12  Rather you are surprised, whereas they keep mocking
37:13  And they do not understand, when explained to
37:14  And whenever they see a sign, they mock at it
37:15  And they say, “This is nothing but clear magic.”
37:16  “When we are dead and have turned into dust and bones, will we certainly be raised again?”
37:17  “And also our forefathers?”
37:18  Proclaim, “Yes, and with disgrace.”
37:19  So that is just a single jolt, thereupon they will begin staring
37:20  And will say, “O our misfortune!” It will be said to them, “This is the Day of Justice.”
37:21  “This is the Day of Judgement, which you used to deny!”
37:22  “Gather all the unjust persons and their spouses, and all that they used to worship!”
37:23  “Instead of Allah - and herd them to the path leading to hell.”
37:24  “And stop them - they are to be questioned.”
37:25  “What is the matter with you, that you do not help one another?”
37:26  In fact this day they have all surrendered
37:27  And some of them inclined towards others, mutually questioning
37:28  They said, “It is you who used to come to us from our right, in order to sway.”
37:29  They will answer, “You yourselves did not have faith!”
37:30  “And we did not have any control over you; but in fact you yourselves were rebellious.”
37:31  “So the Word of our Lord has proved true upon us; we will surely have to taste (the punishment).”
37:32  “We therefore led you astray, for we ourselves were astray!”
37:33  So this day they all are partners in the punishment
37:34  This is how We deal with the guilty
37:35  Indeed, when it was said to them, “There is no God except Allah”, they were haughty
37:36  And they used to say, “Shall we forsake our gods upon the sayings of a mad poet?”
37:37  In fact he has brought the Truth, and testified for the Noble Messengers
37:38  “You surely have to taste the painful punishment.”
37:39  “And you will not be compensated except for your deeds.”
37:40  Except the chosen bondmen of Allah
37:41  For them is the sustenance known to Us
37:42  Fruits; and they will be honoured
37:43  In Gardens of peace
37:44  Facing one another on thrones
37:45  Cups of wine will be presented to them in rounds, from a spring flowing in front of them
37:46  White, delicious for the drinkers
37:47  Neither does it intoxicate, nor give a headache
37:48  And with them are those who do not set gaze upon men except their husbands, the maidens with gorgeous eyes
37:49  As if they were eggs, safely hidden
37:50  So one among them turns to the other, questioning.
37:51  The speaker among them said, “I had a companion.”
37:52  “Who used to tell me, ‘Do you believe it is true?’
37:53  ‘That when we are dead and have turned into dust and bones, that we will either be rewarded or punished?’ ”
37:54  He said (to others on the thrones), “Will you take a glimpse (into hell) below?”
37:55  He therefore looked down and saw him amidst the blazing fire
37:56  He said, “By Allah, you had nearly ruined me!”
37:57  “And were it not for the munificence of my Lord, I too would have been seized and brought forth (captive)!”
37:58  “So are we never to die?” (The people of Paradise will ask the angels, with delight, after the announcement of everlasting life.
37:59  “Except our earlier death, and nor will we be punished?”
37:60  “This is, most certainly, the supreme success.”
37:61  For such a reward should the workers perform
37:62  So is this welcome better, or the tree of Zaqqum
37:63  We have indeed made that a punishment for the unjust
37:64  Indeed it is a tree that sprouts from the base of hell
37:65  Its fruit like the heads of demons
37:66  So indeed they will eat from it, and fill their bellies with it
37:67  Then after it, indeed for them is the drink of boiling hot water
37:68  Then surely their return is towards hell
37:69  They had indeed found their forefathers astray
37:70  So they hastily follow their footsteps
37:71  And indeed before them, most of the former people went astray
37:72  And indeed We had sent Heralds of warnings among them
37:73  Therefore see what sort of fate befell those who were warned
37:74  Except the chosen bondmen of Allah
37:75  And indeed Nooh prayed to Us – so what an excellent Acceptor of Prayer We are
37:76  And We rescued him and his household from the great calamity
37:77  And We preserved his descendants
37:78  And We kept his praise among the latter generations
37:79  Peace be upon Nooh, among the entire people
37:80  This is how We reward the virtuous
37:81  He is indeed one of Our high ranking, firmly believing bondmen
37:82  We then drowned the others
37:83  And indeed Ibrahim is from his (Nooh’s) group
37:84  When he came to his Lord, with a sound heart. (Free from falsehood)
37:85  When he said to his father (paternal uncle) and his people, “What do you worship?”
37:86  “What! You desire, through fabrication, gods other than Allah?”
37:87  “So what do you assume regarding the Lord Of The Creation?” (That He will not punish you?
37:88  He then shot a glance at the stars
37:89  He then said, “I feel sick (of you)!”
37:90  And they turned their backs on him and went away. (The pagans thought he would transmit the disease)
37:91  He then sneaked upon their deities and said, “Do you not eat?”
37:92  “What is the matter with you, that you do not say anything?”
37:93  He then began striking them with his right hand, unseen by the people
37:94  So the disbelievers came running towards him
37:95  He said, “What! You worship what you yourselves have sculpted?”
37:96  “Whereas Allah has created you and your actions?”
37:97  They said, “Construct a building (furnace) for him, and then cast him in the blazing fire!”
37:98  So they tried to execute their evil scheme upon him – We therefore degraded them. (Allah saved him, by commanding the fire to turn cool)
37:99  And he said, “Indeed I shall go to my Lord Who will guide me.”
37:100  “My Lord! Give me a meritorious child.”
37:101  We therefore gave him the glad tidings of an intelligent son
37:102  And when he became capable of working with him, Ibrahim said, “O my son, I dreamt that I am sacrificing you - therefore now consider what is your opinion”; he said, “O my father! Do what you are commanded! Allah willing, you will soon find me patiently enduring!”
37:103  Then (remember) when they both submitted to Allah’s command, and Ibrahim lay his son facing downwards. (The knife did not hurt Ismail
37:104  And We called out to him, “O Ibrahim!”
37:105  “You have indeed made the dream come true”; and this is how We reward the virtuous
37:106  Indeed this was a clear test
37:107  And We rescued him in exchange of a great sacrifice. (The sacrifice of Ibrahim and Ismail – peace be upon them – is commemorated every year on 10,11 and 12 Zil Haj)
37:108  And We kept his praise among the latter generations
37:109  Peace be upon Ibrahim
37:110  This is how We reward the virtuous
37:111  He is indeed one of Our high ranking, firmly believing bondmen
37:112  And We gave him the glad tidings of Ishaq, a Herald of the Hidden, from among those who deserve Our proximity
37:113  And We sent blessings upon him and Ishaq; and among their descendants - some who do good deeds, and some who clearly wrong themselves
37:114  And We indeed did a great favour to Moosa and Haroon
37:115  And rescued them and their people from the great calamity
37:116  And We helped them, so they were victorious
37:117  And We bestowed the clear Book to both of them
37:118  And guided them to the Straight Path
37:119  And We kept their praise among the latter generations
37:120  Peace be upon Moosa and Haroon
37:121  This is how We reward the virtuous
37:122  Indeed they are two of Our high ranking, firmly believing bondmen
37:123  And indeed Ilyas is one of the Noble Messengers
37:124  When he said to his people, “Do you not fear?”
37:125  “What! You worship Baal (an idol) and leave the Best Creator?”
37:126  “Allah, Who is, your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers?”
37:127  In response they denied him, so they will surely be brought forth as captives
37:128  Except the chosen bondmen of Allah
37:129  And We kept his praise among the latter generations
37:130  Peace be upon Ilyas
37:131  This is how We reward the virtuous
37:132  He is indeed one of Our high ranking, firmly believing bondmen
37:133  And indeed Lut is one of the Noble Messengers
37:134  When We rescued him and his entire household
37:135  Except an old woman, who became of those who stayed behind
37:136  We then destroyed the others
37:137  And indeed you pass over them in the morning.
37:138  And during the night; so do you not have sense
37:139  And indeed Yunus is one of the Noble Messengers
37:140  When he left towards the laden ship
37:141  Then lots were drawn and he became of those who were pushed into the sea
37:142  The fish then swallowed him and he blamed himself. (For not waiting for Allah’s command.
37:143  And were he not one of those who praise.
37:144  He would have remained in its belly till the day when all will be raised
37:145  We then put him ashore on a plain, and he was sick
37:146  And We grew a tree of gourd (as a shelter) above him
37:147  And We sent him towards a hundred thousand people, in fact more
37:148  So they accepted faith - We therefore gave them usage for a while
37:149  Therefore ask them (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him), whether the daughters are for your Lord and the sons for them
37:150  Or that have We created the angels as females, while they were present
37:151  Pay heed! It is their slander that they say. –
37:152  That “Allah has offspring”; and indeed, surely, they are liars
37:153  “Has he chosen daughters instead of sons?”
37:154  “What is the matter with you? What sort of a judgement you impose!”
37:155  “So do you not ponder?”
37:156  “Or do you have some clear proof?”
37:157  “Then bring forth your Book, if you are truthful!”
37:158  And they have appointed a relationship between Him and the jinns; and indeed the jinns surely know that they will be brought forth
37:159  Purity is to Allah from the matters they fabricate
37:160  Except the chosen bondmen of Allah
37:161  Therefore you and all what you worship. (The disbelievers and their deities.
37:162  You cannot make anyone rebel against Him
37:163  Except the one who will go into the blazing fire
37:164  And the angels say, “Each one of us has an appointed known position.”
37:165  “And indeed we, with our wings spread, await the command.”
37:166  “And indeed we are those who say His purity.”
37:167  And indeed the disbelievers used to say,
37:168  “If we had some advice from the earlier generations,”
37:169  “We would certainly be the chosen bondmen of Allah.”
37:170  They therefore denied it, so they will soon come to know
37:171  And indeed Our Word has already gone forth for Our bondmen who were sent
37:172  That undoubtedly, only they will be helped
37:173  And surely, only Our army will be victorious
37:174  Therefore turn away from them for some time
37:175  And watch them, for they will soon see
37:176  So are they being impatient for Our punishment
37:177  So when it does descend in their courtyards – so what an evil morning it will be for those who were warned
37:178  And turn away from them for some time
37:179  And wait, for they will soon see
37:180  Purity is to your Lord, the Lord of Honour, from all what they say
37:181  And peace is upon the Noble Messengers
37:182  And all praise is to Allah, the Lord Of The Creation
