37:1  By the aligners aligning
37:2  And the drivers driving
37:3  And the reciters of the Reminder.
37:4  Your God is indeed One
37:5  Lord of the heavens and the earth, and everything between them; and Lord of the Easts
37:6  We have adorned the lower heaven with the beauty of the planets
37:7  And guarded it against every defiant devil
37:8  They cannot eavesdrop on the Supernal Elite, for they get bombarded from every side
37:9  Repelled—they will have a lingering torment
37:10  Except for him who snatches a fragment—he gets pursued by a piercing projectile
37:11  Inquire of them, 'Are they more difficult to create, or the others We created?' We created them from sticky clay
37:12  But you wonder, and they ridicule
37:13  And when reminded, they pay no attention
37:14  And when they see a sign, they ridicule
37:15  And they say, 'This is nothing but plain magic
37:16  When we have died and become dust and bones, shall we be resurrected
37:17  And our ancestors of old?'
37:18  Say, 'Yes indeed, and you will be totally subdued.'
37:19  It will be a single nudge, and they will be staring
37:20  They will say, 'Woe to us. This is the Day of Judgment.'
37:21  'This is the Day of Separation which you used to deny
37:22  Gather those who did wrong, and their mates, and what they used to worship
37:23  Besides God, and lead them to the way to Hell
37:24  And stop them. They are to be questioned.'
37:25  What is the matter with you? Why do you not help one another
37:26  In fact, on that Day, they will be submissive
37:27  They will come to one another, questioning one another
37:28  They will say, 'You used to come at us from the right.'
37:29  They will say, 'You yourselves were not believers
37:30  We had no authority over you. You yourselves were rebellious people
37:31  The Word of our Lord has been realized against us. We are tasting it
37:32  We seduced you. We were seducers.'
37:33  On that Day, they will share in the punishment
37:34  Thus We deal with the sinners
37:35  When it was said to them, 'There is no god except God,' they grew arrogant
37:36  And said, 'Are we to abandon our gods for a mad poet?'
37:37  In fact, he came with the truth, and he confirmed the messengers
37:38  Most assuredly, you will taste the painful punishment
37:39  And you will be repaid only for what you used to do
37:40  Except for God's sincere servants.
37:41  For them is a known provision
37:42  Fruits; and they will be honored
37:43  In the Gardens of Bliss
37:44  On furnishings, facing one another
37:45  They will be offered a cup of pure drink
37:46  White; a delight to those who drink
37:47  Never polluted, and never intoxicating
37:48  With them will be bashful women with lovely eyes
37:49  As if they were closely guarded pearls
37:50  Then they will approach one another, questioning
37:51  One of them will say, 'I used to have a friend
37:52  Who used to say, 'Are you of those who believe
37:53  That after we die and become dust and bones, we will be called to account?'
37:54  He will say, 'Will you have a look?'
37:55  He will look, and will see him in the pit of Hell
37:56  He will say, 'By God, you almost ruined me
37:57  Were it not for the grace of my Lord, I would have been among the arraigned.'
37:58  'We will not die
37:59  Except for our first death, and we will not be punished.'
37:60  This is the supreme triumph
37:61  For the like of this let the workers work
37:62  Is this a better hospitality, or the Tree of Bitterness
37:63  We made it an ordeal for the unjust
37:64  It is a tree that grows from the bottom of Hell
37:65  Its fruits are like the devils' heads
37:66  They will eat from it, and fill their bellies with it
37:67  Then, on top of it, they will have a brew of boiling liquid
37:68  Then their return will be to the Blaze
37:69  They had found their parents astray
37:70  And rushed along in their footsteps
37:71  And most of the ancients before them went astray
37:72  Even though We sent messengers to warn them
37:73  So observe the end of those who were warned
37:74  Except for the sincere servants of God
37:75  And Noah called out to Us, and We are the Best of responders
37:76  And We saved him and his family from the great calamity
37:77  And We made his descendants the survivors
37:78  And We left mention of him among those who succeeded
37:79  Peace be upon Noah among all people
37:80  We thus reward the righteous
37:81  He was one of Our believing servants
37:82  Then We drowned the others
37:83  Of his kind was Abraham
37:84  When he came to his Lord with a sound heart
37:85  He said to his father and his people, 'What are you worshiping
37:86  Is it falsified gods, instead of God, that you want
37:87  So what is your opinion about the Lord of the Worlds?'
37:88  Then he took a glance at the stars
37:89  And said, 'I am sick.'
37:90  But they turned their backs on him, and went away.
37:91  Then he turned to their gods, and said, 'will you not eat
37:92  What is it with you, that you do not speak?'
37:93  Then he turned on them, striking with his right hand
37:94  And they came running towards him.
37:95  He said, 'Do you worship what you carve
37:96  When God created you, and what you manufacture?'
37:97  They said, 'Build a pyre for him, and throw him into the furnace.'
37:98  They wished him ill, but We made them the losers
37:99  He said, 'I am going towards my Lord, and He will guide me.'
37:100  'My Lord, give me one of the righteous.'
37:101  So We gave him good news of a clement boy
37:102  Then, when he was old enough to accompany him, he said, 'O My son, I see in a dream that I am sacrificing you; see what you think.' He said, 'O my Father, do as you are commanded; you will find me, God willing, one of the steadfast.'
37:103  Then, when they had submitted, and he put his forehead down
37:104  We called out to him, 'O Abraham
37:105  You have fulfilled the vision.' Thus We reward the doers of good
37:106  This was certainly an evident test
37:107  And We redeemed him with a great sacrifice
37:108  And We left with him for later generations
37:109  Peace be upon Abraham
37:110  Thus We reward the doers of good
37:111  He was one of Our believing servants
37:112  And We gave him good news of Isaac, a prophet, one of the righteous
37:113  And We blessed him, and Isaac. But among their descendants are some who are righteous, and some who are clearly unjust to themselves
37:114  And We blessed Moses and Aaron
37:115  And We delivered them and their people from the terrible disaster
37:116  And We supported them, and so they were the victors
37:117  And We gave them the Clarifying Scripture
37:118  And We guided them upon the straight path
37:119  And We left with them for later generations
37:120  Peace be upon Moses and Aaron
37:121  Thus We reward the righteous
37:122  They were of Our believing servants
37:123  Also Elijah was one of the messengers
37:124  He said to his people, 'Do you not fear
37:125  Do you call on Baal, and forsake the Best of creators
37:126  God is your Lord, and the Lord of your ancestors.'
37:127  But they called him a liar, and thus they will be brought forward
37:128  Except for God's sincere servants
37:129  And We left with him for later generations
37:130  Peace be upon the House of Elijah
37:131  Thus We reward the virtuous
37:132  He was one of Our believing servants
37:133  And Lot was one of the messengers
37:134  We saved him and his family, all of them
37:135  Except for an old woman who lagged behind
37:136  Then We annihilated the others
37:137  You pass by them in the morning
37:138  And at night. Do you not understand
37:139  And Jonah was one of the messengers
37:140  When he fled to the laden boat
37:141  He gambled and lost
37:142  Then the fish swallowed him, and he was to blame
37:143  Had he not been one of those who praised
37:144  He would have stayed in its belly until the Day they are raised
37:145  Then We threw him into the wilderness, and he was sick
37:146  And We made a gourd tree grow over him
37:147  Then We sent him to a hundred thousand, or more
37:148  And they believed, so We gave them enjoyment for a while
37:149  Ask them, 'Are the daughters for your Lord, while for them the sons?'
37:150  Or did We create the angels females, as they witnessed?'
37:151  No indeed! It is one of their lies when they say
37:152  'God has begotten.' They are indeed lying
37:153  So He preferred girls over boys
37:154  What is the matter with you? How do you judge
37:155  Will you not reflect
37:156  Or do you have some clear proof
37:157  Then bring your book, if you are telling the truth
37:158  And they invented a relationship between Him and the jinn. But the jinn know that they will be arraigned
37:159  God be glorified, far above what they allege
37:160  Except for God's sincere servants
37:161  Surely, you and what you serve
37:162  Cannot seduce away from Him
37:163  Except for he who will be roasting in Hell
37:164  'There is not one of us but has an assigned position
37:165  And we are the arrangers
37:166  And we are the glorifiers.'
37:167  Even though they used to say
37:168  'Had we received advice from the ancients
37:169  We would have been God's faithful servants.'
37:170  But they rejected it, so they will find out
37:171  Our Word has already gone out to our servant messengers
37:172  It is they who will be supported
37:173  And Our troops will be the victors
37:174  So disregard them for a while
37:175  And watch them—they will soon see
37:176  Are they seeking to hasten Our punishment
37:177  When it descends into their yard, miserable will be the morning of those forewarned
37:178  So avoid them for a while
37:179  And watch—they will soon see
37:180  Exalted be your Lord, the Lord of Glory, beyond their allegations
37:181  And peace be upon the messengers
37:182  And praise be to God, the Lord of the Worlds
