37:1  By the columns in formation
37:2  By the drivers of clouds
37:3  By the remembrance which follows
37:4  Your god is indeed One
37:5  The Lord of the heavens and the Earth, and what lies between them, and Lord of the easts
37:6  We have adorned this universe with the decoration of planets
37:7  And to guard against every rebellious devil
37:8  They cannot listen to the command up high; and they are bombarded from every side
37:9  Outcasts; they will have an eternal retribution
37:10  Any of them who snatches something away, he is pursued by a piercing flame
37:11  So ask them: "Are they the more powerful creation, or the others We created" We have created them from sticky mud
37:12  While you were awed, they simply mocked
37:13  And when they are reminded, they do not care
37:14  And when they see a sign, they make fun of it
37:15  And they said: "This is nothing but evident magic!"
37:16  "Can it be that after we die and become dust and bones, that we are resurrected"
37:17  "What about our fathers of old"
37:18  Say: "Yes, and then you will be humiliated."
37:19  All it takes is one sound, then they will be staring
37:20  And they said: "Woe to us, this is the Day of Judgment!"
37:21  This is the Day of decisiveness that you used to deny
37:22  Gather the transgressors, and their mates, and all they worshiped
37:23  Beside God, and guide them to the path of Hell
37:24  And let them stand and be questioned
37:25  "Why do you not support one another"
37:26  No, for today they have totally given up
37:27  And some of them came to each other, questioning
37:28  They said: "You used to entice us from the right side."
37:29  They replied: "No, it was you who were not believers."
37:30  "And we never had any power over you, but you were a wicked people."
37:31  "So our Lord's decree is now upon us, that we will suffer."
37:32  "We misled you, because we were astray."
37:33  Then, on that Day they will all share in the retribution
37:34  This is how We deal with the criminals
37:35  When it was said to them: "There is no god except God," they would be arrogant
37:36  And they would Say: "Shall we leave our gods because of a crazy poet"
37:37  No, he has come with the truth and he has confirmed the messengers
37:38  You will taste the greatest of retribution
37:39  And you are only recompensed for what you have done
37:40  Except for God's servants who are faithful
37:41  For them will be known provisions
37:42  Fruits, and they will be honoured
37:43  In the gardens of bliss
37:44  On furnishings which are opposite one another
37:45  They will be served with cups of pure drinks
37:46  Clear and tasty for the drinkers
37:47  There is no bitterness therein, nor will they tire from it
37:48  And with them are attendants with wide eyes and a splendid look
37:49  They are like fragile eggs
37:50  So then they approached one another, questioning
37:51  One of them said: "I used to have a friend."
37:52  "Who use to Say: "Are you among those who believe in this"
37:53  "That if we die and turn into dust and bones, that we would be called to account""
37:54  He said: "Can anyone find him"
37:55  So when he looked, he saw him in the midst of Hell
37:56  He said: "By God, you nearly ruined me!"
37:57  "And had it not been for my Lord's blessing, I would have been with you."
37:58  "Are we then not going to die,"
37:59  "Except for our first death, and we will not be punished"
37:60  Such is the greatest triumph
37:61  For this let those who will strive work
37:62  Is that a better destination, or the tree of Bitternes
37:63  We have made it a punishment for the transgressors
37:64  It is a tree that grows in the midst of Hell
37:65  Its shoots are like the devils' heads
37:66  They will eat from it, so that their bellies are filled up
37:67  Then they will have with it a drink of boiling liquid
37:68  Then they will be returned to Hell
37:69  They had found their parents astray
37:70  So they too have hastened in their footsteps
37:71  Most of the previous generations have strayed before them
37:72  And We had sent to them warners
37:73  Thus note the consequences for those who were warned
37:74  Except for God's servants who are faithful
37:75  And Noah had called upon Us, for We are the best to respond
37:76  And We saved him and his family from the great disaster
37:77  And We made his progeny the one that remained
37:78  And We kept his history for those who came later
37:79  Peace be upon Noah among the worlds
37:80  It is such that We reward the righteous
37:81  He is of Our believing servants
37:82  Then We drowned the others
37:83  And from among his descendants was Abraham
37:84  For he came to his Lord with a pure heart
37:85  When he said to his father and his people: "What are you worshiping"
37:86  "Is it fabricated gods, instead of God, that you want"
37:87  "What do you say of the Lord of the worlds"
37:88  Then he looked towards the stars
37:89  And he said: "I am ill!"
37:90  So they turned away from him and departed
37:91  He then went to their idols and said: "Can you not eat"
37:92  "What is the matter, you do not speak"
37:93  So he then turned on them, striking with his hand
37:94  Then they approached him outraged
37:95  He said: "Do you worship what you carve"
37:96  "While God has created you, and all that you make!"
37:97  They said: "Build for him a structure, and then throw him into its fire."
37:98  So they wanted to harm him, but We made them the losers
37:99  And he said: "I am going to my Lord; He will guide me."
37:100  "My Lord, grant me from among the righteous."
37:101  So We gave him good news of a compassionate child
37:102  And when he grew enough to work with him, he said: "My son, I am seeing in a dream that I am sacrificing you. What do you think" He said: "O my father, do what you are commanded to do. You will find me, God willing, patient."
37:103  So when they both had surrendered, and he put his forehead down
37:104  And We called him: "O Abraham,"
37:105  "You have believed the vision." It was such that We rewarded the righteous
37:106  Surely, this was an exacting test
37:107  And We ransomed him with a great animal sacrifice
37:108  And We kept his history for those who came later
37:109  Peace be upon Abraham
37:110  It is thus that We reward the righteous
37:111  He was of Our believing servants
37:112  And We gave him the good news of the coming of Isaac, a prophet from among the righteous
37:113  And We blessed him and Isaac. And from among their progeny, some are righteous, and some are clearly wicked
37:114  And indeed, We have given Our grace to Moses and Aaron
37:115  And We saved them and their people from the great disaster
37:116  And We supported them, so that they became the winners
37:117  And We gave both the clear Scripture
37:118  And We guided them to the straight path
37:119  And We kept their history for those who came later
37:120  Peace be upon Moses and Aaron
37:121  We thus reward the righteous
37:122  Both of them were among Our believing servants
37:123  And Elias was one of the messengers
37:124  When he said to his people: "Would you not be righteous"
37:125  "Would you call on Ba'al and forsake the best Creator"
37:126  "God is your Lord, and the Lord of your fathers of old!"
37:127  But they denied him. Thus they were called to account
37:128  Except for God's devoted servants
37:129  And We kept his history for those who came later
37:130  Peace be upon the family of Elias
37:131  We thus reward the righteous
37:132  He was one of our believing servants
37:133  And Lot was one of the messengers
37:134  When We saved him and all his family
37:135  Except an old woman who remained
37:136  Then, We destroyed the rest
37:137  And you pass by their ruins in the morning
37:138  And in the night. Do you not understan
37:139  And Jonah was one of the messengers
37:140  When he escaped to the charged ship
37:141  And he was guilty, so he became among the losers
37:142  Thus a whale swallowed him, and he was the one to blame
37:143  And had it not been that he was one of those who implored
37:144  He would have stayed in its belly until the Day of Resurrection
37:145  So We threw him on the shore while he was sick
37:146  And We caused seaweed to grow on him
37:147  And We sent him to a hundred thousand, or more
37:148  And they believed, so We gave them enjoyment for a time
37:149  So ask them: "Are the daughters for your Lord, while the sons are for them"
37:150  Or did We create the Angels as females while they witnesse
37:151  Indeed, it is out of their falsehood that they Say
37:152  "The son of God." And they are liars
37:153  Has He chosen the daughters over the son
37:154  What is wrong with you, how do you judg
37:155  Will you not remembe
37:156  Or do you have a clear proo
37:157  Bring forth your scripture, if you are truthful
37:158  And they invented a kinship between Him and the Jinn. But the Jinn know that they will be gathered
37:159  God be glorified from what they describe
37:160  Except for God's servants who are faithful
37:161  As for you and what you worship
37:162  You cannot lead away from Him
37:163  Except those who are destined to Hell
37:164  Every one of us has a destined place
37:165  And we are the ones who are in columns
37:166  And we are the ones that glorify
37:167  And they used to Say
37:168  "If only we had received a reminder from the previous generations,"
37:169  "We would have surely been God's loyal servants."
37:170  But they rejected it. They will come to know
37:171  Our word had been decreed to Our servants who were sent
37:172  That they would be made victorious
37:173  And that Our soldiers are the winners
37:174  So turn away from them for awhile
37:175  And observe them; for they will see
37:176  Do they seek to hasten Our retributio
37:177  Then, when it descends into their courtyard, evil will be the morning, for they have already been warned
37:178  And turn away from them for awhile
37:179  And observe; for they will see
37:180  Glory be to your Lord, the Lord of greatness, for what they have described
37:181  And peace be upon the messengers
37:182  And praise be to God, Lord of the worlds
