37:1  By those lined up in rows.
37:2  And those holding back.
37:3  And those reciting the reminder.
37:4  Your god is indeed one.
37:5  The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them and the Lord of the sunrises.
37:6  We have adorned the heaven of this world with the adornment of stars.
37:7  And a protection against every rebellious devil.
37:8  They cannot listen to the highest counsel and are pelted from every side.
37:9  Chased away, and theirs is a lasting punishment.
37:10  Except for one who tries to do so by stealth, then a bright shooting star pursues him.
37:11  So ask them, are they stronger in creation or whom else We created, for We created them from sticky clay.
37:12  Yet you are amazed and they make fun.
37:13  And when they are reminded they do not remember.
37:14  And when they see a sign they belittle it.
37:15  And say: this is only plain magic.
37:16  When we have died and are dust and bones, are we going to be raised again?
37:17  Or our forefathers?
37:18  Say: yes, and you will be submissive.
37:19  For it will be a single shout and they will see.
37:20  And they will say: woe to us, this is the day of repayment.
37:21  This is the day of division which you used to deny.
37:22  Gather the wrongdoers and their partners and all that they served,
37:23  Besides Allah, and guide them to the path of hell-fire.
37:24  And arrest them, for they will be questioned.
37:25  What is the matter with you that you don´t help each other?
37:26  But today they have surrendered.
37:27  And some of them approach others, asking each other,
37:28  Saying: you came to us (claiming to be) from the right.
37:29  They say: but you were not believers.
37:30  And we had no authority over you, but you were transgressing people.
37:31  So the word of our Lord came to pass for us that we had to taste it.
37:32  And we led you astray for we were astray.
37:33  So today they will share in the punishment.
37:34  For this is how We deal with the sinners.
37:35  When they are told that there is no god but Allah they are arrogant.
37:36  And they say: are we going to abandon our gods for a possessed poet?
37:37  But he brought the truth and the messengers were right.
37:38  You will taste the painful punishment.
37:39  And you will only be punished for what you did.
37:40  Except the sincere servants of Allah.
37:41  For them is a known provision.
37:42  Fruit, and they will be honoured.
37:43  In gardens of blessings.
37:44  They will face each other happily.
37:45  They will be waited upon with a cup of flowing beverage.
37:46  White (in colour), delicious to drink.
37:47  With no harmful effect in it nor will they be drained by it.
37:48  And with them will be exclusive women of rare beauty.
37:49  As if they were hidden white pearls.
37:50  Then some of them approach others, asking each other.
37:51  A speaker amongst them says: I had a friend.
37:52  Who said: are you confirming the truth of this?
37:53  That when we have died and are dust and bones, are we going to be judged?
37:54  He says: do you want to take a look?
37:55  Then he looks and sees him in the midst of hell-fire.
37:56  He says: by Allah, he almost ruined me.
37:57  And had it not been for the favour of my Lord, I would have been called to account.
37:58  So we will not die?
37:59  Except for our first death, and we will not be punished.
37:60  For this is the ultimate success.
37:61  For the like of this should everybody work.
37:62  Is this a better reward or the tree of Zaqqum?
37:63  For We made it a trial for the wrongdoers.
37:64  It is a tree which grows from the base of hell-fire.
37:65  Its fruit is like the heads of devils.
37:66  Then they will be eating from it and filling their stomachs with it.
37:67  Then they will have a cocktail of boiling water on top of it.
37:68  Then they will be returned to hell-fire.
37:69  For they found their fathers astray.
37:70  Then they eagerly followed into their footsteps.
37:71  And most of the earliest communities before them went astray.
37:72  And We did send warners amongst them.
37:73  So see what the outcome of those warned was like.
37:74  Except the sincere servants of Allah.
37:75  And We previously called Nuh (Noah), and he responded well.
37:76  And We rescued him and his family from the tremendous distress.
37:77  And We made his descendants the survivors.
37:78  And We left him to be remembered by those afterwards.
37:79  Peace be with Nuh (Noah) in all the worlds.
37:80  For this is how We reward those who do good.
37:81  For he is of Our believing servants.
37:82  Then We drowned the others.
37:83  And of his faction is Ibrahim (Abraham).
37:84  When he came to his Lord with a clean heart.
37:85  When he said to his father and his people: what do you serve?
37:86  Do you want invented gods besides Allah?
37:87  So what do you think of the Lord of all worlds?
37:88  Then he took a look at the stars.
37:89  Then he said: I feel sick.
37:90  Then they turned away from him.
37:91  So he turned to their gods and said: don´t you eat?
37:92  What is the matter with you that you don´t speak?
37:93  Then he struck them with his right hand.
37:94  Then they hurried towards him.
37:95  He said: do you serve what you carve yourselves?
37:96  When Allah created you and what you do?
37:97  They said: build a structure for him and throw him into the fire.
37:98  So they wanted to plot against him, but We made them the lowest.
37:99  And he said: I will go towards my Lord, He will guide me.
37:100  My Lord, make me from amongst the righteous.
37:101  Then We gave him good news of a gentle son.
37:102  Then when he was old enough to go out with him, he said, oh my son, I saw in my dream that I should sacrifice you, so see what you think. He said: oh my father, do what you have been commanded, you will find me if Allah pleases of the patient.
37:103  So when they had both submitted and he turned him face down,
37:104  We called him: oh Ibrahim (Abraham)!
37:105  You have already fulfilled the dream; for this is how we reward those who do good.
37:106  For this is the clear test.
37:107  And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice.
37:108  And We left him to be remembered by those afterwards.
37:109  Peace be upon Ibrahim (Abraham).
37:110  This is how We reward those who do good.
37:111  For he is of Our believing servants.
37:112  And We gave him good news of Ishaq (Isaac) as a prophet from amongst the righteous.
37:113  And We blessed him and Ishaq (Isaac), and of their descendants are those who do good and those who clearly wrong themselves.
37:114  And We already favoured Musa (Moses) and Harun (Aaron).
37:115  And We rescued them and their people from the tremendous distress.
37:116  And We helped them and they were the victorious.
37:117  And We gave them the clarifying book.
37:118  And We guided them on the straight path.
37:119  And We left them to be remembered by those afterwards.
37:120  Peace be upon Musa (Moses) and Harun (Aaron).
37:121  For this is how We reward those who do good.
37:122  For they are of Our believing servants.
37:123  And Ilyas (Elijah) is one of the messengers.
37:124  When he said to his people: will you not beware (of Allah)?
37:125  Do you call on Baal and abandon the best of creators?
37:126  Allah, your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers.
37:127  But they denied him, so they will be presented.
37:128  Except the sincere servants of Allah.
37:129  And We left him to be remembered by those afterwards.
37:130  Peace be upon Ilyas (Elijah).
37:131  For this is how We reward those who do good.
37:132  For he is of Our believing servants.
37:133  And Lut (Lot) is one of the messengers.
37:134  When We rescued him and his family altogether.
37:135  Except an old woman who stayed behind.
37:136  Then We destroyed the others.
37:137  And you pass by them in the mornings.
37:138  And at night, so don´t you understand?
37:139  And Yunus (Jonah) is one of the messengers.
37:140  When he ran away to the laden ship.
37:141  Then after drawing lots was defeated.
37:142  Then the fish swallowed him whilst he blamed himself.
37:143  And had he not been of those who glorify (Allah),
37:144  He would have stayed in its belly till the day when they are resurrected.
37:145  Then We flung him into the open whilst he was sick.
37:146  And We grew a marrow plant for him.
37:147  And We sent him to a hundred thousand (people) or more.
37:148  Then they believed and We gave them provision for a while.
37:149  So ask them: does your Lord have daughters whilst they have sons?
37:150  Or did We create the angels female whilst they were witnesses?
37:151  It is of their inventions that they say:
37:152  Allah has fathered children, and they are lying.
37:153  That he has chosen daughters over sons.
37:154  What is the matter with you, how do you judge?
37:155  Don´t you reflect?
37:156  Or do you have a clear authority?
37:157  Then bring your letter (of authority) if you are truthful.
37:158  And they claimed a relationship between Him and the Jinn, when the Jinn already knew that they will be presented.
37:159  Glorified is Allah above what they make out.
37:160  Except the sincere servants of Allah.
37:161  For you and what you served,
37:162  You will not tempt anyone against Him,
37:163  Except him who enters the hell-fire.
37:164  And each of us has a known place.
37:165  And We are the ones lined up.
37:166  And We are the ones who glorify.
37:167  And they used to say:
37:168  If only we had a reminder from the earlier communities,
37:169  We would have been sincere servants of Allah.
37:170  But they rejected him, so they shall soon know.
37:171  And Our word has gone before regarding Our messengers,
37:172  That they will be helped,
37:173  And that Our forces will be victorious.
37:174  So turn away from them for a while.
37:175  And watch them, for soon they will see.
37:176  Do they hasten Our punishment?
37:177  Then when it comes down on their habitations, bad is the awakening of those who have been warned.
37:178  And turn away from them for a while.
37:179  And watch, for soon they will see.
37:180  Glorified is your Lord, the Lord of Might, above what they make out.
37:181  And peace be upon the messengers.
37:182  And Allah is praised, the Lord of all worlds
