37:1  By those (angels) arranged in rows,
37:2  by those (angels) who are strong in repelling (evil),
37:3  by those (angels) who bring the book (the Qur’an),
37:4  surely your one worthy of worship is indeed One (Allah),
37:5  the Lord of the heavens and the earth, and all that lies between them, and Lord of every point of the sun’s risings.
37:6  Surely! We have adorned the lower heaven with beautiful stars
37:7  and has guarded against all rebellious devils.
37:8  They cannot even listen to the higher group (angels) for they are pelted from every side,
37:9  repulsed and they are under a constant punishment.
37:10  Except such as snatch away something by stealing and they are pursued by a flaming fire of piercing brightness.
37:11  Ask them (polytheists, O Muhammad): “Are they stronger as creation, or those whom We have created?” Surely, We created them of sticky clay.
37:12  Nay, you (Muhammad) wonder while they mock (at you and the Qur’an).
37:13  When they are reminded, they don’t pay attention,
37:14  and when they see a Verse (from Allah), they mock at it
37:15  and say: “This is nothing but clear magic!
37:16  When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then surely be resurrected?
37:17  Also our forefathers of old times?”
37:18  Say (O Muhammad): “Yes and you shall then be humiliated.”
37:19  It will be only a single shout and they will be staring!
37:20  They will say: “Woe to us! This is the Day of recompense!”
37:21  (It will be said): “This is the Day of judgment which you used to deny.”
37:22  (It will be said to the angels): “Assemble those who did wrong, together with their companions whom they used to worship
37:23  besides Allah, and lead them to the way of flaming fire (hell).”
37:24  (When they will be gathered, Allah will say): “Stop them, surely they are to be questioned:
37:25  What is the matter with you? Why don’t you help one another (as you used to do in the world)?”
37:26  Nay, but that Day they shall surrender.
37:27  Some of them will face others to question one another.
37:28  They will say (to their leaders): “Surely, you used to come to us from the right (with authority to beautify every evil, enjoin polytheism, and stop us from the truth).”
37:29  They will reply: “Nay, you were not believers.
37:30  We had no authority over you. Nay! You were transgressing people,
37:31  now the Word of our Lord has become justified against us, and indeed we shall taste (the punishment).
37:32  So we led you astray because we were ourselves astray.”
37:33  Then surely on that Day, they will share in the punishment.
37:34  Certainly, that is how We shall deal with sinners
37:35  surely, when it was said to them: “There is no one worthy of worship but Allah,” they used to puff themselves up with pride
37:36  and say: “Are we going to abandon our one worthy of worship for the sake of a mad poet?”
37:37  Nay! He (Muhammad) has come with the truth and he has confirmed the (previous) Messengers.
37:38  (It will be said): “Surely, you (polytheists) are going to taste the painful punishment;
37:39  and you will be requited nothing except for what you had done (evil deeds).”
37:40  Except the chosen (faithful) devotees of Allah,
37:41  those for them will have known provision:
37:42  fruits, and they shall be honored
37:43  in the gardens of delight (Paradise),
37:44  on the thrones facing one another,
37:45  served around (them) with a cup of pure wine,
37:46  crystal-white, delicious to the drinkers.
37:47  Neither they will have any kind of hurt, headache or sin in that, nor will they suffer intoxication from that.
37:48  With them will be chaste females restraining their glances (for husbands only) with wide and beautiful eyes
37:49  as if they were preserved eggs.
37:50  Some of them will turn to others, questioning each others.
37:51  One of them will say: “Surely, I had a companion for me (in the world),
37:52  who used to say: ‘Are you among those who believe (in Resurrection after death)?
37:53  When we die and become dust and bones, shall we indeed (be raised up) to receive reward or punishment (according to deeds)?”’
37:54  It will be said (to him): “Will you look down (to see the friend)?”
37:55  So the person looked down and saw friend in the midst of the fire.
37:56  The person said: “By Allah! You have nearly ruined me.
37:57  Had it not been for the Grace of my Lord, I would certainly have been among those brought forth (to hell).
37:58  (The believer in the heaven will say): “Are we then not to die (any more)
37:59  after our first death and we shall not be punished?”
37:60  Truly, this is the supreme success!
37:61  For such an end, let everyone strive who wishes to strive.
37:62  Is this (Paradise) a better entertainment or the tree of the Zaqqum (a horrible tree in hell)?
37:63  Truly, We have made it a trail for the wrongdoers.
37:64  Surely, it is a tree that grows in the bottom of hellfire,
37:65  the shoots of its fruit-stalks are like the heads of devils,
37:66  so truly, they will eat from it and fill their bellies from it.
37:67  Then surely, on top of that, they will be given a mixture of boiling water (to drink).
37:68  Then surely, their return is to the flaming fire of hell.
37:69  In fact, they found their fathers on the wrong way,
37:70  so they are too haste to follow their footsteps!
37:71  and indeed most of the ancient people went astray before them
37:72  and indeed We had sent warners (Messengers) among them.
37:73  Then see how was the end of those who were warned (all perished),
37:74  except the chosen (faithful) devotees of Allah.
37:75  And indeed Noah prayed to Us, and indeed We are the Best to answer (the prayer).
37:76  And We rescued him and his family from the great distress (drowning),
37:77  and made his progeny to be the only survivors,
37:78  and left for him (a good name) among generations to come in later times.
37:79  Peace be upon Noah (from Us) among the (people of) worlds!
37:80  Surely, thus We reward the righteous people.
37:81  Surely, he (Noah) was one of Our believing devotees.
37:82  Then We drowned the others (disbelievers).
37:83  Surely, among those who followed his (Noah’s) way was 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 you worship?
37:86  Is it a falsehood worthy of worship other than Allah that you seek?
37:87  Then what do you think about the Lord of the worlds?
37:88  Then he looked a glance at the stars,
37:89  and said: “Surely, I am sick (he did this trick to stay in their temple of idols to destroy them and not to accompany them to the pagan’s feast).”
37:90  So they turned away from him, and departed.
37:91  Then he turned to their idols and said: “Why don’t you eat (from food offered)?
37:92  What is the matter with you that you don’t speak?”
37:93  Then he turned upon them, striking with his right hand.
37:94  They (idol worshippers) came running towards him.
37:95  He said: ”Do you worship what you carve,
37:96  while Allah has created you and what you have make?”
37:97  They said: “Build for him a building (like a furnace) and throw him into the blazing fire!”
37:98  So they plotted against him, but We made them the lowest (humiliated).
37:99  He said (after his rescue from fire): “Surely, I am going to my Lord. He will guide me
37:100  My Lord! Grant me (offspring) from the righteous.”
37:101  So We gave him the glad tidings of a gentle boy.
37:102  When he (son) was old enough to walk with him, he said: “O my son! Surely, I have seen in the sleep (dream) that I am slaughtering you (sacrifice to Allah), so what do you think!” He said: “O my father! Do what you are commanded (by Allah), you shall find me of the patient.
37:103  Then, when they had both submitted themselves (to Allah), and he laid his son prostrate on his forehead (for sacrifice);
37:104  and Allah called out to him: “O Abraham!
37:105  Surely, you have fulfilled the dream!” Surely! Thus We reward the righteous people.
37:106  Surely, that was indeed a clear trial.
37:107  We ransomed his son for a great sacrifice
37:108  and We left for him (good name) among the later generations (to come).
37:109  Peace be upon Abraham!
37:110  Thus indeed We reward the righteous people.
37:111  Surely, he was one of Our believing devotees.
37:112  And We gave him the glad tidings of (his son) Isaac, a prophet from the righteous.
37:113  We blessed him and Isaac. Of their progeny, there are some who do right, and some plainly wrong themselves.
37:114  Indeed We gave Our Grace to Moses and Aaron.
37:115  We saved them and their people from the great distress;
37:116  and helped them, so they became victorious
37:117  We gave them the clear Scripture (Torah),
37:118  and guided them to the Right Way.
37:119  We left for them (a good name) among later generations (to come).
37:120  Peace be upon Moses and Aaron!
37:121  Surely, thus We do reward the righteous people.
37:122  Surely! They were of Our believing devotees.
37:123  Surely, Elias was one of the Messengers.
37:124  When he said to his people: “Will you not fear (Allah)?
37:125  Will you call upon Bal (idol) and forsake the best of creators,
37:126  Allah, your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers?”
37:127  But they denied him (Elias), so they will certainly be brought forth (to the punishment)
37:128  except the chosen (faithful) devotees of Allah.
37:129  We left for him (a good name) among later generations (to come).
37:130  Peace be upon Elias!
37:131  Surely, thus We reward the righteous people.
37:132  Surely, he was one of Our believing devotees.
37:133  Surely, Lot was one of the Messengers.
37:134  When We saved him and all his family,
37:135  except an old woman (who was) among those who remained behind
37:136  then We destroyed the rest (the towns of Sodom at the Dead Sea in Jordan).
37:137  Surely, you pass by them in the morning,
37:138  and at night; will you not then reflect (think)?
37:139  Surely, Jonah was one of the Messengers.
37:140  When he ran to the laden ship,
37:141  he (agreed to) cast lots, and he was among the losers.
37:142  Then a (big) fish swallowed him while he had done an act worthy of blame.
37:143  Had it not been that he was of those who glorify (Allah),
37:144  he would have indeed remained in its belly (the fish) till the Day of Resurrection.
37:145  Then We cast him out on the naked shore while he was sick
37:146  and We caused a plant of gourd (squash) to grow over him.
37:147  Then We had sent him to a nation of 100,000 people or even more.
37:148  They believed; so We gave them enjoyment for a while.
37:149  Now ask them (disbelievers, O Muhammad): (Does it make sense that) your Lord should have only daughters while they choose to have sons
37:150  Or did We create the angels as females while they were witnesses
37:151  Surely, they invent a lie when they say:
37:152  “Allah has begotten (children). Surely, they are liars!”
37:153  Has He chosen daughters (rather than) sons?
37:154  What is the matter with you? How do you decide?
37:155  Will you not then remember?
37:156  Or is there any plain authority for you?
37:157  Then bring your book if you are truthful!
37:158  They have invented a kinship between Him and the jinns, but indeed the jinns know quite well that they will be brought for account (before Allah)
37:159  Glory be to Allah! (He is free) from what they attribute to Him
37:160  except the chosen (faithful) devotees of Allah.
37:161  So, neither you nor those whom you worship (idols)
37:162  can lead (anyone) astray
37:163  except those who are destined to burn in hell!
37:164  (The angels say): “There is one known place for us.
37:165  Surely, we stand in rows (for prayers);
37:166  surely, we are those who glorify (Allah).”
37:167  Indeed they (disbelievers) used to say:
37:168  “If we had a reminder like the people of old received (before the coming of Muhammad)
37:169  we would have indeed been the chosen devotees of Allah!”
37:170  But (since the Qur’an has come) they disbelieve in it (the Qur’an), and they will come to know (the consequence soon)!
37:171  Surely, Our Word has gone forth for Our devotees, the Messengers,
37:172  that surely they would be victorious
37:173  and verily, Our hosts (soldiers) will be victorious.
37:174  So turn away (O Muhammad) from them for a while,
37:175  and watch them, and they shall see (your victory)!
37:176  Do they seek to hasten on Our Punishment?
37:177  Then, when it descends into their court-yard (near them), then evil will be the morning for those who had been warned!
37:178  So turn (O Muhammad) away from them for a while,
37:179  and watch (their downfall) and they shall see (your victory)!
37:180  Glory be to your Lord, the Lord of honor and power, (He is free) from what they attribute to Him!
37:181  Peace be upon the Messengers
37:182  and all the praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds.
