37:1  Act as a witness those personalities who set themselves in rows — establishing the rows (in Salat)
37:2  then the personalities who transmit the strict warning — transmitting strict warnings (in Takbeer)
37:3  then the personalities who recite (the Text of Al-Kitab) Zikran (as a Message)
37:4  (declaring categorically that) verily, your Ilah is indeed One —
37:5  Nourisher-Sustainer to the heavens and the earth, and whatever is between those two; and the Nourisher-Sustainer to all the easts (every point of the sun’s risings)
37:6  Verily We, We have adorned the near heaven with the beauty of the planets
37:7  and (other items) as a guard against all the rebellious Satans
37:8  They are unable to hear to the higher elite and they are pelted from every side —
37:9  being repulsed and outcast, and for them is a constant and perpetual punishment
37:10  except one who snatched away something snatched stealthily — then a flaming fire of piercing brightness pursued and chased him
37:11  So ask them: “Are they more strong as a creation, or (others) whom We created (as jinns etc.)? " Verily, We created them (i.e., the humans) of sticky clay
37:12  Nay, you wondered (at Al-Kitab) while they mock (at it)
37:13  And when they are reminded they do not remind (neither themselves, nor others)
37:14  And when they saw Aayatan (‘A Verse’ in Al-Kitab), they mock (at the Message)
37:15  and said: “It is not but evident magic
37:16  Whether, when we are dead, and have become dust and bones, shall we then verily be indeed those who have been raised into a new life
37:17  And whether our initial forefathers (also)?”
37:18  Say: “Yes (of course)! And you are those who are humiliated .
37:19  So certainly what (is a fact is that) this (Day of Resurrection) is a single blasting (wild) sound. And behold, they are staring
37:20  And they said: “Oh, woe to us! This is the Day of Accountability.”
37:21  This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny
37:22  (The advice will proceed to the angels thus): "Assemble those who did wrong and their accomplices and what they used to worship
37:23  besides Allah, and lead them on to the way of the Flaming Fire
37:24  but keep them detained, surely they are those who have been questioned (and have yet not given any explanation for their evil deeds and fake beliefs).”
37:25  (O opponents of Al-Kitab)! What (is the matter) with you? You do not provide help to one another
37:26  Nay, they, this Day are submitters
37:27  And some of them came closer to some others — they question one another
37:28  They said: “Certainly (it was) you, you used to come to us from the right side.”
37:29  They (i.e., the others) said: “Nay, you (yourselves) were not Believers
37:30  And there was not in us, regarding you, any authority. Nay! You (yourselves) were a nation of disobedient arrogants
37:31  So the Statement (about punishment) coming from our Nourisher-Sustainer has proved true against us. Verily, we indeed are those who shall taste it very soon
37:32  So we led you astray, since indeed we ourselves used to be astray.”
37:33  So, surely they, this Day, will be co-partners in the torment
37:34  Surely We, in such a manner, We deal with Al-Mujrimun
37:35  Truly they, when it was said to them: “La ilaha-ill-Allah [(there is) no god except Allah]”, they used to show stubborn arrogance
37:36  And they say: “Whether surely we become those who indeed will abandon our aaliha (gods) for the sake of a fanatic poet?”
37:37  Nay! (One who propagates Al-Kitab) has come alongwith Al-Haqq (‘The Truth’), and he has confirmed (and verified) the Messengers
37:38  Verily, you (arrogant disbelievers) are about to become those who taste the painful torment
37:39  And you will not be rewarded except what you used to do —
37:40  save the Ibad of Allah who have been purified and sanctified (from every polytheism and disbelief)
37:41  Those people: for them is a well-known provision
37:42  fruits, and they will be honoured people
37:43  in the Gardens of delight
37:44  facing one another on raised couches
37:45  round them will pass [boys in perpetual (freshness)] with a cup of a flowing (liquid)
37:46  of white colour, a delight to those who drink (it)
37:47  no bad-effect therein, nor they will suffer intoxication therefrom
37:48  And near them will be those who restrain their glance, (possessing) beautiful wide eyes (with a raven-black cornea on snow-white sclera) —
37:49  as if they are eggs well guarded (in a nest)
37:50  Then some of those (dwellers in Paradise) moved forward towards some (others). They question mutually
37:51  One speaker from amongst them said: “Verily I, there was a companion to me (while I stayed in the world)
37:52  he would (frequently) say (to me): 'are you surely, indeed of those who confirm and verify
37:53  Whether when we have faced death and we have become dust and bones, would surely we will indeed be those who have been fully recompensed (of their deeds)?'”
37:54  (The other one) said: “Would you like to be those who would peep and see?”
37:55  So he peeped and saw; so he saw him in the midst of the Fire
37:56  He said: “Allah is Witness, if you could, you would have surely ruined me
37:57  And if (there was) not the Grace of my Nourisher-Sustainer, I would certainly have been among those who have been brought forth (to the midst of Fire)
37:58  Are we then not to be those who must die
37:59  except our first death, and we are not those who have been put to punishment
37:60  Truly, this indeed— that is the supreme achievement .
37:61  For this kind (of good deeds) let the performers (of actions and deeds) perform
37:62  Is this better as a welcome or the tree of Zaqqum
37:63  Truly, We have made that (tree) a trial for the criminals
37:64  Verily, it is a tree that springs out in the bottom of the Hell-Fire
37:65  The shoot of its fruit-stalk — as if it is — heads of the devils
37:66  Truly, they (the criminals) surely, are about to eat thereof, then they are about to fill up the bellies therewith
37:67  Then surely, for them in addition to that, is indeed a drink of an item on a boiling-temperature
37:68  Thereafter, surely their returning-place is indeed towards the blazing Fire
37:69  Verily, they found their fathers on the wrong path
37:70  So they are made to run in their footsteps
37:71  And surely, indeed most of the earlier people before them went astray
37:72  And surely, indeed We sent amongst them warners
37:73  Then ponder what was the final end of those who were warned —
37:74  save Ibad of Allah who were cleansed and sanctified
37:75  And surely, indeed Nuh invoked Us, so surely (We are) the Best — those who answer (the request)
37:76  And We rescued him and his followers from the great distress
37:77  And We made his progeny: they (very ones, as) the survivors
37:78  And We left, regarding him in the later generations —
37:79  ‘Salamun [peace (and blessings be)] upon Nuh’ throughout the worlds
37:80  Certainly We, like this, We reward the Muhsinun (who perform righteous deeds in perfection)
37:81  Verily, he was out of Our Believing Ibad
37:82  Afterwards We drowned the other ones
37:83  And verily, from amongst his group (is) surely Ibrahim
37:84  When he approached his Nourisher-Sustainer with a submitting heart
37:85  When he counselled his father and his nation: “What is that which you worship
37:86  Is (that) falsehood — aaliha (gods or deities) (which) you seek besides Allah
37:87  So, what is your thought and concept regarding the Nourisher-Sustainer to the worlds?”
37:88  Then he cast a glance at the stars
37:89  then he said: “Verily, I feel sick
37:90  So they turned away from him, showing their backs. [Please see Verse 21/57 to understand the plan and challenge which Ibrahim had in his mind]
37:91  Then (Ibrahim) turned to their aaliha and said: “Will you not eat (of these offerings available for you)
37:92  What (is the matter) with you: you do not speak?”
37:93  Then he turned upon them, strihead of state (them) with (his) right (hand)
37:94  Then the people (when they came to know of this incident which took place in their absence), returned back to him; they hasten on (intoxicated in their wild fury)
37:95  (Ibrahim) said: “Do you worship that which you (yourself) carve
37:96  while Allah has created you as well as that which you make (as your handiwork)?”
37:97  They said: “Prepare for him a structure, then throw him into the blazing fire.”
37:98  So they intended an evil design against him, but We made them the most humiliated
37:99  And (after remaining untouched by the fire, Ibrahim) said: “Verily, I am about to go towards my Nourisher-Sustainer; soon He will guide me
37:100  My Nourisher-Sustainer! Grant me (a son) out of the righteous.”
37:101  So We gave him the glad tidings of a forbearing, submissive male offspring
37:102  So when he attained (reached the age of), ‘striving and effort along with him’, he (the father) said: “O my little son! I do see during the sleep that I will offer you in sacrifice (to some Cause of Allah), so look what you think.” He said: “O my dear father! Implement what you would be commanded; soon you would find me, in-shaa-Allaho [if Allah (so) willed] out of those who patiently persevere .
37:103  So when both submitted (themselves), and he (Ibrahim) made him (Ismaiel) ready for Al-Jabeen [the forehead (i.e., , the events which Ismaiel would face as a sacrifice in the Way of Allah)]
37:104  instantly, We called out to him (saying) that: " O Ibrahim
37:105  Indeed, you have fulfilled the vision (dream)!” Verily, thus We do reward the Muhsinun
37:106  Verily, this (vision): indeed that (is) an obvious test and preparation
37:107  And We interpreted unto him (the contents of the vision, and physically implemented Our Plan) through a Great Sacrifice
37:108  And We established for him among the later generations —
37:109  'Salamun [peace (and blessings be)] upon Ibrahim’
37:110  Thus do We reward Al-Muhsinun
37:111  Verily, he was out of Our Believing Ibad
37:112  And (now, after mahead of state him experience the vision) We gave him (i.e., to Ibrahim) the glad tidings of (the birth of) Ishaque — a Prophet from the righteous
37:113  And We showered Blessings on him as well as on Ishaque. And out of the progeny of these two (is that who is) Muhsin (who acts right in perfection) as well as (that who is) Zalim (transgressor) to his Nafs (personality) — evidently manifest
37:114  And surely, indeed We showered Grace on Musa and Harun
37:115  And We saved those two and the nation of those two from the great distress
37:116  And helped them, so they became — they (very ones as) the victors
37:117  And We delivered them Al-Kitab-al-Mustabin (The Book which explains clearly and evidently)
37:118  And We guided them both to As-Sirat-al- Mustaqim (The Permanent, Eternal Path)
37:119  And We established for these two among the future generations —
37:120  'Salamun [peace (and blessings be)] upon Musa and Harun'
37:121  Surely We, thus do We reward Al-Muhsinun
37:122  Verily, those two (were) out of Our Believing Ibad
37:123  And verily, Ilyas (was) surely out of the Messengers —
37:124  When he said to his nation: “Will you not pay obedience (to Allah)
37:125  Will you invoke Ba’l (proper name of a chief idol) and forsake the Better of the creators
37:126  Allah, your Nourisher-Sustainer and Nourisher-Sustainer of your initial forefathers?”
37:127  But they denied him, so surely they will certainly be those brought forth (to the punishment)
37:128  except Ibad of Allah who were cleansed and sanctified
37:129  And We established for him among the later generations —
37:130  'Salamun [peace (and blessings be)] upon Ilyasin'
37:131  Surely We, thus do We reward Al-Muhsinun
37:132  Verily, he (was) out of Our Believing Ibad
37:133  And verily, Lout (was) surely of the Messengers —
37:134  when We saved him and his family, all together
37:135  except one who had crossed the age of fertility and hope — (we left her) among those who bury themselves in dust and debris
37:136  Then We annihilated the rest
37:137  And verily, you people pass by them as those who see the morning (i.e., during the early morning journey)
37:138  and at night . Will you not then use your intellect
37:139  And verily, Yunus (was) surely of the Messengers —
37:140  when he swiftly moved towards the fully loaded ship
37:141  as a result he slipped, so he became of those who have fallen down
37:142  Then a (big) fish swallowed him while he (is) one who blames (his own, and has no complaint against his Creator)
37:143  And that (if) he had not been of those who glorify (Allah) much (i.e., those who are always mindful of the ordainments of Allah)
37:144  surely he would have tarried in its belly uptil the Day when people would be raised (to a new life of Resurrection)
37:145  So We brought him on the bare land along the shore while he was exhausted
37:146  And We caused to grow, for his sake, a plant of the gourd kind
37:147  And We sent him as Messenger to a (nation of) hundred thousand (people), or, they will breed in number
37:148  Then, (when preaching was reinforced over them), they Believed, so We gave them provision for the limited period
37:149  So ask them: “Are (there only) daughters for your Nourisher-Sustainer and sons (exclusively) for them
37:150  Or did We create the angels as females while they (acted as) witnesses?
37:151  Be careful! Certainly they, out of their fabrication they will surely say
37:152  “Allah has begotten (children)”. And certainly they are indeed liars
37:153  Has He chosen daughters in preference to sons
37:154  What is the matter with you? How do you judge
37:155  Will you not then remind (yourselves and remind the others)
37:156  Or is there for you a ‘Sultanun Mobin’ (‘Evident Authority’. This term is applied as an attribute to Allah’s Book)
37:157  (If it is so), then come forward with your Book if you happen to be truthful individuals
37:158  And (the misguided) people have invented between Him and between jinns a genealogical link, although surely, indeed the jinns knew (that) out of a certainty they will surely be those who have been brought (before Allah for Accountability)
37:159  Glorified be Allah from what they attribute (unto Him)
37:160  except Ibad of Allah who were cleansed and sanctified
37:161  So verily, you (disbelievers) and what you worship —
37:162  you are not unto him (i.e., unto a cleansed and sanctified Abd of Allah) as Fateneen [those who will put a person in doubt and suspicion (against Al-Kitab)]
37:163  except that one who is about to approach Hell-Fire
37:164  (And the angels say): “There is not one out of us but for him is a known place
37:165  And verily we, indeed we are those who stand in rows
37:166  And verily we, indeed we are those who glorify.
37:167  And they (disbelievers in Allah’s Book) used to indeed say
37:168  “If (it be) that (there is available) unto us Zikr (‘Message’) moving down from the earlier people
37:169  we would have indeed been Ibad of Allah who are cleansed and sanctified.”
37:170  But (now when Allah’s Book is again in its Original and under active propagation), they have disbelieved therein; so very soon they will know (the ultimate result)
37:171  And surely, indeed, Our Statement stands issued regarding Our Ibad — the Messengers
37:172  verily they, indeed they will be those who have received help
37:173  And certainly it is Our Regiments (and forces) — indeed they (shall be) victorious
37:174  So turn away from them for a while
37:175  but keep a watch over them; then soon they will (also) see
37:176  Do they then seek to hasten on Our Torment
37:177  So when it has already descended into their courtyard, then the morning of those who had been warned (in advance) turned into something evil
37:178  So turn away from them for a while
37:179  but keep a watch; then soon they will (also) see
37:180  Exalted and Absolved is your Nourisher-Sustainer, the Nourisher-Sustainer in Honour (and Majesty) from what people attribute (as partners unto Him)
37:181  And 'Salamun [peace (and blessings be)] on the Messengers .
37:182  And selective Praise suits Allah (Alone), Nourisher-Sustainer to the worlds
