37:1  By those who arrange themselves in ranks (or rows, to serve and to worship Allah,
37:2  And by those who raise the clouds in a holy way, (to keep away the fears from the mind of humans,
37:3  And those who recite the Message (of Allah)
37:4  Surely! (And assuredly,) your Allah is One (Wah'id)
37:5  Lord of the heavens and of the earth, and all (that is) between them, and Lord of every point of the sun-rising, (that keeps changing every day of the year
37:6  Verily, We have truly stored the lower heaven with beauty (of) the stars—
37:7  (For beauty) and for protection against every tough (unwilling and) revolting Satan
37:8  (So that) they (the Satans') should not try to hear from the direction of the Exalted Assembly (of men and angels in Allah’s service and worship) but (they) be thrown out from every side
37:9  Outcast (and unwelcome), they are under an everlasting penalty
37:10  Except such who may snatch something by stealing: And they are being followed by a flaming Fire of stabbing brightness
37:11  Then just ask (the disbelievers) what they think: Are they the more difficult to create, or the (other) creations whom We have created surely, We have created them (the disbelievers) out of a sticky clay
37:12  Nay! Do you wonder while they mock (and make fun of you and the Quran)
37:13  And when they are reminded, they pay no attention—
37:14  And when they see a Sign (from Allah), they mock at it
37:15  And they say: "This is nothing but evident magic!"
37:16  "What!" (they ask), "When we are dead, and become dust and bones, shall we (then) be resurrected (raised up again)
37:17  "And also our fathers from the old (days)?"
37:18  You say: "Yes, then you shall (also) be put to shame (because of your evil)."
37:19  Then it will be a single (harsh) cry; And look, they will begin to see
37:20  They will say: "Woe (misery) to us! This is the Day of Judgment!"
37:21  (A voice will say:) "This is the Day of Sorting Out, whose Truth you denied (once)
37:22  (The angels will be told): "Bring (all of) you up (for Judgment); The wrongdoers and their companions; And the things they worshipped—
37:23  "Besides Allah, and lead them to the way to the (burning) Fire
37:24  "But stop them, verily, they must be asked
37:25  " 'What is the matter with you, why do you not help each other (now)?' "
37:26  No! But on that Day they shall submit themselves, (to the Judgment
37:27  And they will turn to one another, and question one another
37:28  They will say: "It was you who used to come to us from the right hand (of power and authority)!"
37:29  They will reply: "No, you, yourselves were not believers
37:30  "Also we did not have any authority over you. No, it was you who were a transgressing people
37:31  "So now (this moment) has come true against us, the Word of our Lord that we shall really taste (the penalty of our sins)
37:32  "We led you astray: Because, truly we were ourselves astray."
37:33  Then truly, (on) that Day, they will (all) share in the Penalty
37:34  Surely, that is how We shall deal with the criminals (Al-Mujrimun)
37:35  Truly, when they were told that there is no god except Allah, they would fill themselves up with (false) pride
37:36  And they said: "What! Shall we give up our gods for the sake of a poet possessed?" (Referring to Prophet
37:37  No, he (the Messenger) has come with the Truth, and he restates (the Message of) the messengers (before him)
37:38  Verily, you shall really taste the painful Penalty—
37:39  But it will be no more than the penalty for (the evil) that you have done —
37:40  Except the true (and loving) servants of Allah—
37:41  For them, their food (and provision) is known
37:42  Fruits (and Joys); And they (shall have) honor and dignity
37:43  In Gardens of (supreme) happines
37:44  Facing each other on thrones (of dignity)
37:45  Around to them will be passed a Cup from a clear-flowing fountain
37:46  Crystal-white (and) of a delicious taste for those who drink (from it)
37:47  Free from all pains (and annoyances); They will not suffer intoxication (from it)
37:48  And beside them will be noble (and pure) women, holding back their looks, with big eyes (filled wonder and beauty)
37:49  As if they were (delicate) eggs closely guarded (from evil)
37:50  Then they will turn to one another and question one another
37:51  One of them will start the speak and say: "Verily, I had a close companion (on the earth)
37:52  "Who used to say: 'What! Are you from those (people) who confirms the Truth (of the Message)
37:53  " 'That when we die and become dust and bones, shall we really receive the rewards and punishments?' "
37:54  (The speaker) said: "Would you like to look down?"
37:55  So he looked down and saw him (the questioner) in the middle of the Fire
37:56  He (the speaker) said: "By Allah! You brought me very close to ruin (in this Hell)
37:57  "Had it not been for the Grace of my Lord, I would surely be among those brought (to Hell)!"
37:58  (The people of Paradise will say:) "Is it (true) that we will not die (again)
37:59  "Except our first death, and that we shall not be punished?"
37:60  Surely, this is the supreme success (to be in the Paradise of joy)
37:61  For those who like (the state) this (joy) let (them) all work hard, (those) who wish to strive
37:62  Is that (the Paradise), the better place (of joy) or the (evil and wicked) tree of Zaqqum (in the Pit of Hell, see 37.64—65)
37:63  Truly, We have made it (the evil tree of Zaqqum) a trial for the wrongdoers
37:64  Verily, it is a tree that comes out from the bottom of Hell-Fire
37:65  The buds of its fruit-stalk, come out of the stems; (They are) like the heads of Satans'
37:66  Truly, they (the wrongdoers) will eat from there and fill their stomachs with it
37:67  Then on top of that they will be given a mixture made of boiling water
37:68  Then, thereafter, verily their return will be to the burning Fire of Hell
37:69  Truly, they found their fathers on the wrong path
37:70  So they (also) were rushed down after them (in their fathers evil footsteps)
37:71  And indeed, before them, many (people) from the olden days went astray—
37:72  And indeed, We sent (messengers) among them, to warn them—
37:73  Then see what was the end of those who were warned (but did not pay attention)—
37:74  Except the devoted (and loving) servants of Allah
37:75  And indeed, (in the old days), Nuh (Noah) cried to Us, and We are the best of those to answer him
37:76  And We rescued him, and his family from the great destruction (of the Flood)
37:77  And made his children (and descendants) to live (and stay on this earth)
37:78  And We left for him (this noble blessing) in the generations to follow in later times
37:79  "Peace! (and greetings) to Nuh (Noah) among the (Our) Creation!"
37:80  Truly, like this do We reward those who do good
37:81  Verily, he (Nuh) was one of Our believing servants
37:82  Then We drowned the others (in the Flood)
37:83  And surely, among those who followed his (Nuh’s) way was Ibrahim (Abraham)
37:84  When he came to his Lord with a pure heart
37:85  When he said to his father and to his people, "What is it that, which you worship
37:86  "Is it a lie, false gods other than Allah, that you want
37:87  "Then what do you know about the Lord of the Worlds (Rab-Al-'Ala'meen )?"
37:88  Then he took a look at the stars
37:89  And he said, "I am truly sick (at my heart)!"
37:90  So they (his people) turned away from him, and left (him)
37:91  Then he turned to their gods and said: "Will you not eat (from what is offered to you)?..
37:92  "What is the matter with you that you do not speak (and make sense)?"
37:93  Then he turned upon them (their gods), striking (them) with the right hand
37:94  Then (the worshippers) came with quick steps, and faced (him)
37:95  He said: "Do you worship what you have carved (yourselves)
37:96  "While (it is) Allah (Who) has created you and (also) what you have made!"
37:97  They said: "Build for him a house (burning like a furnace), and throw him into the blazing fire!"
37:98  So (after having failed; See 21.69), they then took a way (to hurt) against him, but We made them the ones most ashamed
37:99  And he said: "Verily, I am going to my Lord! He will surely guide me
37:100  "O my Lord! Grant me (a progeny) of the righteous!"
37:101  So, We gave him the good news of a boy ready (to be born) to suffer and be patient
37:102  And when (his son, Ismail) became (the age to) work with him, he (Ibrahim) said: "O my son! I see in a dream (vision) that I offer you in sacrifice (to Allah): Now see what is your (own) thought!" (The son) said: "O my father! Do like you are commanded: You will find me, if Allah so wills one who has (great) patience (and constancy!)"
37:103  Then, when they both had submitted their wills (to Allah’s Wish), and he (Ibrahim) had laid him (his son, Ismail) prostrate on his forehead (for sacrifice)
37:104  We called out to him, "O Ibrahim (Abraham)
37:105  "You have already fulfilled your vision!"— Verily, thus We do reward those who do good
37:106  Indeed, it was clearly a trial (for Ibrahim)—
37:107  And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice (with that of a ram)
37:108  And We left for him (this blessing) in the generations to follow in later times
37:109  "Peace be upon to Ibrahim (Abraham)!"
37:110  Verily, thus do We reward those who do good
37:111  Indeed, he was one of Our believing servants
37:112  And We gave him the good news of Ishaq (Isaac)— A prophet— One of the righteous
37:113  We blessed him and Ishaq (Isaac): And of their children (and descendants) are (some) who do right, and (some) who clearly do wrong to their own souls
37:114  And again, (from the past) We bestowed Our favor on Musa (Moses) and Haroon (Aaron)
37:115  And We saved them and their people from (their) great misfortune
37:116  And We helped them, so that they overcame (their troubles)
37:117  And We gave them the Book and Clear Scripture (Torah, which helps to make things clear)
37:118  And We guided them to the Straight Path
37:119  And We left for them (this blessing) in the generations to follow in later times
37:120  “Peace, be upon Musa (Moses) and to Haroon (Aaron)!"
37:121  Verily, thus do We reward those who do good
37:122  Indeed, they were two of Our believing servants
37:123  And verily, Ilyas (Elias) was one of Our messengers
37:124  When he said to his people: "Will you fear (Allah)
37:125  "Will you call upon the false god (Baal) and give up the Best of Creators—
37:126  "Allah— Your Lord and (Cherisher and) the Lord (and Cherisher) of your fathers from the earlier days?"
37:127  But they denied him, so they will be truly brought up (for punishment)—
37:128  Except the sincere and the devoted servants of Allah (among them)
37:129  And We left for him (this blessing) in the generations to follow in later times
37:130  "Peace be upon those like Ilyas (Elias)!"
37:131  Verily, thus do We reward those who do good
37:132  Indeed, he was one of Our believing servants
37:133  And verily, Lut (Lot) was one of the messengers
37:134  Truly, We saved him and all his people (with him
37:135  Except an old woman (his wife) who was with those who fell behind
37:136  Then We destroyed the rest
37:137  Surely, you pass by their (sites) by the morning—
37:138  And by night: Will you not reflect and understand
37:139  And verily, Yunus (Jonah) was one of the messengers
37:140  When he ran away (like a slave runs from captivity) to the ship (fully) loaded (with men and cargo)
37:141  Then he (agreed to foretell fortunes and) cast lots, (and he was blamed for the ships bad weather) and he was a loser, punished (and thrown in the sea)
37:142  Then the (big) fish swallowed him, and he had done actions worthy of blame (by running away from his mission)
37:143  If it was that he had not (repented and) glorified Allah
37:144  He would surely have remained inside the fish till the Day of Resurrection (to be raised from the dead)
37:145  But We cast (threw) him on the open shore while he was (still) sick
37:146  And We made a vine (of hard shelled fruit) to grow over him for shade
37:147  And We sent him to (teach Allah’s Message to) a hundred thousand (men) or more
37:148  And they believed; So We let them enjoy (their lives) for a while
37:149  Now ask them (the unbelievers) what they think: Is it that your Lord has (only) daughters, and they have sons
37:150  Or that We created the angels female, and they have seen (it)
37:151  Verily, is it not they who say (in their disbelief and), from their own lies and sayings
37:152  "Allah has had children?" And verily, they are liars
37:153  Did He (then) choose daughters rather than sons
37:154  What is the matter with you? How do you decide
37:155  Then will you not remember (receive the warning)
37:156  Or do you have a clear authority
37:157  (If so), then you bring your Book (of authority) if you are truthful
37:158  And they have invented a blood-relationship between Him and the jinns', but the jinns' know (very well) that they (also) have to appear (for Judgment)
37:159  Glorified be Allah! (He is) Free from the things that they relate (to Him)
37:160  Except those slaves of Allah, whom He chooses
37:161  So surely, neither you nor those you worship—
37:162  Can lead (any of Allah’s servents) into temptation (and lies) about Allah
37:163  Except those who are (by themselves) going to the blazing Fire (of Hell)
37:164  (Those angels arranged in ranks to serve Allah say): "Not even one of us does not have a place appointed
37:165  "And, verily we are surely arranged in ranks (for Allah’s Service)
37:166  "And surely we are those who speak out (Allah’s Supreme) Glory!"
37:167  And indeed they (the pagan Arabs) used to say
37:168  "If only we have had a Message before us from those (Books) of old
37:169  "We would truly have been the Servants of Allah, sincere (and loving)!"
37:170  But (now that the Quran has come), they (still) reject it: But soon will they know (the penalty)
37:171  And surely, Our Word, already has been given before (this) to Our servants and messengers sent
37:172  That they would certainly be made victorious
37:173  And that Our forces— Surely, they would the be victor
37:174  So you (O Prophet!) turn away from them for a little while
37:175  And watch them (how they will do), and they shall soon see (how you do)
37:176  Do they really want to hurry Our punishment
37:177  Then when it (the punishment) falls into the open space before them; Painful will be the morning for those who were warned (but did not pay attention)
37:178  So you turn away from them for a little while
37:179  And watch them (how they will do), and they shall soon see (how you do)
37:180  Glorified be your Lord, the Lord of Honor and Power! (He is free) from the things that they relate (to Him)
37:181  And Peace (be) on the messengers (of Allah)
37:182  And all the Praises (and thanks) to Allah, the Lord (and Cherisher) of the Worlds (Rab-Al-'Ala'meen)
