The Study Quran rendition of Surah Those Who Set The Ranks, Drawn up in Ranks, The Rangers(as-Saffat)
---
37:1 By those ranged in ranks,
37:2 and the drivers driving,
37:3 and the reciters of a reminder,
37:4 truly your God is One,
37:5 Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is between them, and Lord of the easts.
37:6 Truly We adorned the lowest heaven with an ornament, the stars,
37:7 and a guard against every defiant satan.
37:8 They listen not to the Highest Assembly, for they are repelled from every side—
37:9 cast out, and theirs shall be a punishment everlasting—
37:10 save one who snatches a fragment as a piercing flame pursues him.
37:11 So ask them, are they more difficult to create, or those whom We created? Truly We created them from a viscous clay.
37:12 Indeed, but thou dost marvel, while they scoff.
37:13 And when they are reminded, they do not remember.
37:14 And when they see a sign, they seek to scoff,
37:15 and say, “This is naught but manifest sorcery.
37:16 What! When we have died and are dust and bones are we to be resurrected,
37:17 and our fathers of old?”
37:18 Say, “Yes, and debased will you be.”
37:19 Then there will be but a single cry. And they will then behold.
37:20 They will say, “Oh, woe unto us! This is the Day of Judgment.”
37:21 This is the Day of Division that you used to deny.
37:22 Gather those who did wrong together with their spouses and that which they used to worship
37:23 apart from God, and guide them unto the path of Hellfire.
37:24 And stop them. Surely they are to be questioned:
37:25 “What ails you that you do not help one another?”
37:26 Nay, but this Day they will surrender.
37:27 And they will turn to one another, questioning each other,
37:28 saying, “Truly you used to come to us from the right.”
37:29 They reply, “Nay, but you were not believers.
37:30 And we had no authority over you. Rather, you were a rebellious people.
37:31 So the Word of our Lord has come due for us; truly we shall taste [it].
37:32 We caused you to err for truly we were errant.”
37:33 Verily that Day they will share in the punishment.
37:34 Thus do We deal with the guilty.
37:35 Indeed, when it was said unto them, “There is no god but God,” they waxed arrogant,
37:36 saying, “Are we to forsake our gods for a poet possessed?”
37:37 Nay! He has come with the truth and confirmed the messengers.
37:38 Truly you shall taste the painful punishment.
37:39 And you shall not be requited, save for that which you used to do.
37:40 Not so for God’s sincere servants.
37:41 For them there shall be a known provision,
37:42 fruits. And they will be honored
37:43 in Gardens of bliss,
37:44 upon couches, facing one another,
37:45 with a cup from a gushing spring brought round,
37:46 white, delicious to those who drink thereof.
37:47 No headiness lies therein; nor are they intoxicated by it.
37:48 And theirs shall be maidens of modest gaze with lustrous eyes,
37:49 as if they were hidden eggs.
37:50 And they will turn to one another, questioning each other.
37:51 One among them will say, “I had a companion
37:52 who would say, ‘Are you among those who confirm?
37:53 What! When we have died and are dust and bones, are we to be requited?’”
37:54 He will say, “Will you look?”
37:55 So he will look and see him in the midst of Hellfire.
37:56 He will say, “By God! You did well-nigh destroy me;
37:57 and if not for the blessing of my Lord, I would have been among the arraigned.
37:58 Are we then not to die,
37:59 but our first death, and are we not to be punished?
37:60 This indeed is the great triumph!”
37:61 For the like of this, then, let the laborers labor.
37:62 Is this a better welcome or the tree of Zaqqum?
37:63 Truly We have made it a trial for the wrongdoers.
37:64 Truly it is a tree that emerges in the depths of Hellfire.
37:65 Its spathes are as the heads of satans.
37:66 They will eat thereof and fill their bellies therewith.
37:67 Then on top of it they will have a brew of a boiling liquid.
37:68 Then their return shall be unto Hellfire.
37:69 Truly they found their fathers astray;
37:70 yet they hasten in their footsteps.
37:71 And before them most of those of old had indeed gone astray,
37:72 though We had indeed sent warners among them.
37:73 So behold how those who were warned fared in the end.
37:74 Not so for God’s sincere servants.
37:75 And indeed Noah cried out to Us. How excellent are those who respond!
37:76 We saved him and his people from great distress,
37:77 and We made his progeny endure,
37:78 and We left [a blessing] upon him among later generations:
37:79 “Peace be upon Noah throughout the worlds.”
37:80 Thus do We recompense the virtuous.
37:81 Truly he was among Our believing servants.
37:82 Then We drowned the others.
37:83 And surely among his party was Abraham,
37:84 when he came unto his Lord with a sound heart,
37:85 when he said unto his father and his people, “What do you worship?
37:86 Is it a perversion, gods apart from God, that you desire?
37:87 What, then, think you of the Lord of the worlds?”
37:88 Then he cast a glance at the stars
37:89 and said, “Truly I am sick.”
37:90 But they turned their backs on him.
37:91 Then he went quietly to their gods and said, “Will you not eat?
37:92 What ails you that you speak not?”
37:93 Then he turned upon them, striking with his right hand.
37:94 Then they came to him rushing.
37:95 He said, “Do you worship that which you carve,
37:96 while God created you and that which you make?”
37:97 They said, “Erect a building for him and cast him into the fire.”
37:98 They desired to scheme against him, so We made them the lowest.
37:99 And he said, “Truly I am going unto my Lord. He will guide me.
37:100 My Lord, give unto me from among the righteous.”
37:101 So We gave him glad tidings of a gentle son.
37:102 When he had become old enough to partake of his father’s endeavors, Abraham said, “O my son! I see while dreaming that I am to sacrifice you. So consider, what do you see?” He replied, “O my father! Do as you are commanded. You will find me, God willing, among those who are patient.”
37:103 But when they had submitted and Abraham had laid him upon his forehead,
37:104 We called unto him, “O Abraham!
37:105 Thou hast been true to the vision.” Thus indeed do We recompense the virtuous.
37:106 Truly this was the manifest trial.
37:107 Then We ransomed him with a great sacrifice.
37:108 And We left [a blessing] upon him among later generations:
37:109 “Peace be upon Abraham.”
37:110 Thus do We recompense the virtuous.
37:111 Truly he was among Our believing servants.
37:112 And We gave him glad tidings of Isaac, a prophet from among the righteous.
37:113 And We blessed him and Isaac. And among their progeny are the virtuous and those who clearly wrong themselves.
37:114 And We were gracious unto Moses and Aaron.
37:115 We saved them and their people from great distress
37:116 and helped them, so that they were the victors.
37:117 And We gave the two of them the Book that makes clear,
37:118 and guided the two of them upon the straight path.
37:119 And We left [a blessing] upon them among later generations:
37:120 “Peace be upon Moses and Aaron.”
37:121 Thus indeed do We recompense the virtuous.
37:122 Truly they were among Our believing servants.
37:123 And truly Elias was among the message bearers
37:124 when he said to his people, “Will you not reverence?
37:125 Do you call upon Baal and leave the most beautiful of creators?
37:126 God is your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of old.”
37:127 But they denied him; so they are surely to be arraigned.
37:128 Not so for God’s sincere servants.
37:129 And We left [a blessing] upon him among later generations:
37:130 “Peace be upon Elias.”
37:131 Thus indeed do We recompense the virtuous.
37:132 Truly he was among Our believing servants.
37:133 And truly Lot was among the message bearers.
37:134 Behold! We saved him and his family all together,
37:135 save for an old woman who was among those who lagged behind.
37:136 Then We destroyed the others.
37:137 And truly you pass by them in the morning
37:138 and at night. Do you not understand?
37:139 And truly Jonah was among the message bearers.
37:140 Behold! He fled to the full-laden ship,
37:141 and then cast lots and was among those rejected.
37:142 Then the fish swallowed him, for he was blameworthy.
37:143 And had he not been among those who glorify,
37:144 he would have tarried in its belly till the Day they are resurrected.
37:145 So We cast him, sick, upon the barren shore.
37:146 And We caused a gourd tree to grow over him.
37:147 Then We sent him unto a hundred thousand or more.
37:148 And they believed; so We granted them enjoyment for a while.
37:149 So ask them, does your Lord have daughters while they have sons?
37:150 Or did We create the angels female, while they were witnesses?
37:151 Behold! It is of their own perversion that they say,
37:152 “God has begotten,” while truly they are liars.
37:153 Has He chosen daughters over sons?
37:154 What ails you? How do you judge?
37:155 Do you not reflect?
37:156 Or have you a manifest authority?
37:157 Bring your Book, then, if you are truthful.
37:158 They have made kinship between Him and the jinn—yet the jinn know that they will surely be arraigned;
37:159 Glory be to God above that which they ascribe.
37:160 Not so for God’s sincere servants.
37:161 For truly neither you nor that which you worship
37:162 can tempt any against Him,
37:163 save he who is to burn in Hellfire.
37:164 There is none among us, but that he has a known station.
37:165 And truly we are those who are ranged [in ranks].
37:166 Truly we are those who glorify.
37:167 Indeed, they used to say,
37:168 “If only we had a reminder from those of old,
37:169 then we would indeed be God’s sincere servants.”
37:170 But they disbelieved in it. So soon they will know,
37:171 for indeed Our Word has already gone forth unto Our message bearers
37:172 that they will surely be helped,
37:173 and that Our host will surely be victorious.
37:174 So turn away from them for a time,
37:175 and observe them; for they will soon observe.
37:176 Do they seek to hasten Our Punishment?
37:177 When it alights in their very midst, evil will be the morning of those who were warned!
37:178 So turn away from them for a time,
37:179 and observe; for they will soon observe.
37:180 Glory be to thy Lord, the Lord of Might, above that which they ascribe.
37:181 Peace be upon the message bearers.
37:182 And praise be to God, Lord of the worlds.
