37:1  By those who set the ranks in battle orde
37:2  And those who drive away (the wicked) with reproo
37:3  And those who read (the Word) for a reminder
37:4  Lo! thy Lord is surely One
37:5  Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all that is between them, and Lord of the sun's risings
37:6  Lo! We have adorned the lowest heaven with an ornament, the planets
37:7  With security from every froward devil
37:8  They cannot listen to the Highest Chiefs for they are pelted from every side
37:9  Outcast, and theirs is a perpetual torment
37:10  Save him who snatcheth a fragment, and there pursueth him a piercing flame
37:11  Then ask them (O Muhammad): Are they stronger as a creation, or those (others) whom we have created? Lo! We created them of plastic clay
37:12  Nay, but thou dost marvel when they moc
37:13  And heed not when they are reminded
37:14  And seek to scoff when they behold a portent
37:15  And they say: Lo! this is mere magic
37:16  When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then, forsooth, be raised (again)
37:17  And our forefathers
37:18  Say (O Muhammad): Ye, in truth; and ye will be brought low
37:19  There is but one Shout, and lo! they behold
37:20  And say: Ah, woe for us! This is the Day of Judgment
37:21  This is the Day of Separation, which ye used to deny
37:22  (And it is said unto the angels): Assemble those who did wrong, together with their wives and what they used to worshi
37:23  Instead of Allah, and lead them to the path to hell
37:24  And stop them, for they must be questioned
37:25  What aileth you that ye help not one another
37:26  Nay, but this day they make full submission
37:27  And some of them draw near unto others, mutually questioning
37:28  They say: Lo! ye used to come unto us, imposing, (swearing that ye spoke the truth)
37:29  They answer: Nay, but ye (yourselves) were not believers
37:30  We had no power over you, but ye were wayward folk
37:31  Now the Word of our Lord hath been fulfilled concerning us. Lo! we are about to taste (the doom)
37:32  Thus we misled you. Lo! we were (ourselves) astray
37:33  Then lo! this day they (both) are sharers in the doom
37:34  Lo! thus deal We with the guilty
37:35  For when it was said unto them, There is no Allah save Allah, they were scornfu
37:36  And said: Shall we forsake our gods for a mad poet
37:37  Nay, but he brought the Truth, and he confirmed those sent (before him)
37:38  Lo! (now) verily ye taste the painful doom
37:39  Ye are requited naught save what ye did
37:40  Save single-minded slaves of Allah
37:41  For them there is a known provision
37:42  Fruits. And they will be honoure
37:43  In the Gardens of delight
37:44  On couches facing one another
37:45  A cup from a gushing spring is brought round for them
37:46  White, delicious to the drinkers
37:47  Wherein there is no headache nor are they made mad thereby
37:48  And with them are those of modest gaze, with lovely eyes
37:49  (Pure) as they were hidden eggs (of the ostrich)
37:50  And some of them draw near unto others, mutually questioning
37:51  A speaker of them saith: Lo! I had a comrad
37:52  Who used to say: Art thou in truth of those who put faith (in his words)
37:53  Can we, when we are dead and have become mere dust and bones - can we (then) verily be brought to book
37:54  He saith: Will ye look
37:55  Then looketh he and seeth him in the depth of hell
37:56  He saith: By Allah, thou verily didst all but cause my ruin
37:57  And had it not been for the favour of my Lord, I too had been of those haled forth (to doom)
37:58  Are we then not to di
37:59  Saving our former death, and are we not to be punished
37:60  Lo! this is the supreme triumph
37:61  For the like of this, then, let the workers work
37:62  Is this better as a welcome, or the tree of Zaqqum
37:63  Lo! We have appointed it a torment for wrong-doers
37:64  Lo! it is a tree that springeth in the heart of hell
37:65  Its crop is as it were the heads of devil
37:66  And lo! they verily must eat thereof, and fill (their) bellies therewith
37:67  And afterward, lo! thereupon they have a drink of boiling wate
37:68  And afterward, lo! their return is surely unto hell
37:69  They indeed found their fathers astray
37:70  But they make haste (to follow) in their footsteps
37:71  And verily most of the men of old went astray before them
37:72  And verily We sent among them warners
37:73  Then see the nature of the consequence for those warned
37:74  Save single-minded slaves of Allah
37:75  And Noah verily prayed unto Us, and gracious was the Hearer of his praye
37:76  And We saved him and his household from the great distress
37:77  And made his seed the survivors
37:78  And left for him among the later folk (the salutation)
37:79  Peace be unto Noah among the peoples
37:80  Lo! thus do We reward the good
37:81  Lo! he is one of Our believing slaves
37:82  Then We did drown the others
37:83  And lo! of his persuasion verily was Abraha
37:84  When he came unto his Lord with a whole heart
37:85  When he said unto his father and his folk: What is it that ye worship
37:86  Is it a falsehood - gods beside Allah - that ye desire
37:87  What then is your opinion of the Lord of the Worlds
37:88  And he glanced a glance at the star
37:89  Then said: Lo! I feel sick
37:90  And they turned their backs and went away from him
37:91  Then turned he to their gods and said: Will ye not eat
37:92  What aileth you that ye speak not
37:93  Then he attacked them, striking with his right hand
37:94  And (his people) came toward him, hastening
37:95  He said: Worship ye that which ye yourselves do carv
37:96  When Allah hath created you and what ye make
37:97  They said: Build for him a building and fling him in the red-hotfire
37:98  And they designed a snare for him, but We made them the undermost
37:99  And he said: Lo! I am going unto my Lord Who will guide me
37:100  My Lord! Vouchsafe me of the righteous
37:101  So We gave him tidings of a gentle son
37:102  And when (his son) was old enough to walk with him, (Abraham) said: O my dear son, I have seen in a dream that I must sacrifice thee. So look, what thinkest thou? He said: O my father! Do that which thou art commanded. Allah willing, thou shalt find me of the steadfast
37:103  Then, when they had both surrendered (to Allah), and he had flung him down upon his face
37:104  We called unto him: O Abraham
37:105  Thou hast already fulfilled the vision. Lo! thus do We reward the good
37:106  Lo! that verily was a clear test
37:107  Then We ransomed him with a tremendous victim
37:108  And We left for him among the later folk (the salutation)
37:109  Peace be unto Abraham
37:110  Thus do We reward the good
37:111  Lo! he is one of Our believing slaves
37:112  And we gave him tidings of the birth of Isaac, a prophet of the righteous
37:113  And We blessed him and Isaac. And of their seed are some who do good, and some who plainly wrong themselves
37:114  And We verily gave grace unto Moses and Aaron
37:115  And saved them and their people from the great distress
37:116  And helped them so that they became the victors
37:117  And We gave them the clear Scriptur
37:118  And showed them the right path
37:119  And We left for them among the later folk (the salutation)
37:120  Peace be unto Moses and Aaron
37:121  Lo! thus do We reward the good
37:122  Lo! they are two of Our believing slaves
37:123  And lo! Elias was of those sent (to warn)
37:124  When he said unto his folk: Will ye not ward off (evil)
37:125  Will ye cry unto Baal and forsake the Best of creators
37:126  Allah, your Lord and Lord of your forefathers
37:127  But they denied him, so they surely will be haled forth (to the doom
37:128  Save single-minded slaves of Allah
37:129  And we left for him among the later folk (the salutation)
37:130  Peace be unto Elias
37:131  Lo! thus do We reward the good
37:132  Lo! he is one of our believing slaves
37:133  And lo! Lot verily was of those sent (to warn)
37:134  When We saved him and his household, every one
37:135  Save an old woman among those who stayed behind
37:136  Then We destroyed the others
37:137  And lo! ye verily pass by (the ruin of) them in the mornin
37:138  And at night-time; have ye then no sense
37:139  And lo! Jonah verily was of those sent (to warn
37:140  When he fled unto the laden ship
37:141  And then drew lots and was of those rejected
37:142  And the fish swallowed him while he was blameworthy
37:143  And had he not been one of those who glorify (Allah
37:144  He would have tarried in its belly till the day when they are raised
37:145  Then We cast him on a desert shore while he was sick
37:146  And We caused a tree of gourd to grow above him
37:147  And We sent him to a hundred thousand (folk) or mor
37:148  And they believed, therefor We gave them comfort for a while
37:149  Now ask them (O Muhammad): Hath thy Lord daughters whereas they have sons
37:150  Or created We the angels females while they were present
37:151  Lo! it is of their falsehood that they say
37:152  Allah hath begotten. Allah! verily they tell a lie
37:153  (And again of their falsehood): He hath preferred daughters to sons
37:154  What aileth you? How judge ye
37:155  Will ye not then reflect
37:156  Or have ye a clear warrant
37:157  Then produce your writ, if ye are truthful
37:158  And they imagine kinship between him and the jinn, whereas the jinn know well that they will be brought before (Him)
37:159  Glorified be Allah from that which they attribute (unto Him)
37:160  Save single-minded slaves of Allah
37:161  Lo! verily, ye and that which ye worship
37:162  Ye cannot excite (anyone) against Him
37:163  Save him who is to burn in hell
37:164  There is not one of us but hath his known position
37:165  Lo! we, even we are they who set the ranks
37:166  Lo! we, even we are they who hymn His prais
37:167  And indeed they used to say
37:168  If we had but a reminder from the men of ol
37:169  We would be single-minded slaves of Allah
37:170  Yet (now that it is come) they disbelieve therein; but they will come to know
37:171  And verily Our word went forth of old unto Our bondmen sent (to warn
37:172  That they verily would be helped
37:173  And that Our host, they verily would be the victors
37:174  So withdraw from them (O Muhammad) awhile
37:175  And watch, for they will (soon) see
37:176  Would they hasten on Our doom
37:177  But when it cometh home to them, then it will be a hapless morn for those who have been warned
37:178  Withdraw from them awhil
37:179  And watch, for they will (soon) see
37:180  Glorified be thy Lord, the Lord of Majesty, from that which they attribute (unto Him
37:181  And peace be unto those sent (to warn)
37:182  And praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds
