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 the Lord of the sunrises.
37:6  We have adorned the lower heaven 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 a part, 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 a clay that is sticky.
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 except 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 you will be humbled."
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 Recompense!"
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 the decree of our Lord 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 the servants God who are faithful.
37:41  For them will be known provisions.
37:42  Fruits, and they will be honored.
37:43  In gardens of bliss.
37:44  On beds which are opposite one another.
37:45  They will be served with a cup of pure drink.
37:46  White, delicious for the drinkers.
37:47  There is no bitterness therein, nor will they tire from it.
37:48  And with them are those with a modest gaze, with lovely eyes.
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 used 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 the blessing of my Lord, 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 great triumph
37:61  For this let those who will work endeavor
37:62  Is that a better destination, or the tree of Bitterness?
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 the servants of God 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 his clan 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 gods 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 cast him into its fire."
37:98  So they wanted to plan against 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 submitted, and he was laid by his forehead.
37:104  And We called him: "O Abraham,"
37:105  "You have carried out 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 Book
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 the devoted servants of God.
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 them in the morning;
37:138  And in the night. Do you not comprehend?
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 a tree of gourd 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 witnessed?
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 sons?
37:154  What is wrong with you, how do you judge
37:155  Will you not remember
37:156  Or do you have a clear proof
37:157  Bring forth your book, 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 the servants of God 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 station.
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 loyal servants of God."
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 retribution
37:177  When it comes down to their courtyard, dire will be the morning for those who have 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.
