37:1  By the aligners aligning.
37:2  And the drivers driving.
37:3  And those conveying the message.
37:4  Your God is certainly One.
37:5  Lord of the heavens, the earth, and everything between them, and Lord of the sunrises.
37:6  We adorned the nearest heaven with the beauty of stars.
37:7  And as a protection from every defiant devil.
37:8  They can’t overhear the Highest Assembly, for they get pelted from every side.
37:9  Repelled, they will face perpetual torment.
37:10  Except for one who snatches a snatch; he is pursued by a piercing flame.
37:11  Ask them, “Are they more difficult to create, or those We created?” We created them from sticky clay.
37:12  Yet you are amazed, and they mock.
37:13  When reminded, they pay no heed.
37:14  When they see a sign, they mock.
37:15  And they say, “This is nothing but apparent magic.
37:16  When we are dead and have become dust and bones, will we be resurrected?
37:17  And our ancient ancestors as well?”
37:18  Say, “Yes, and you’ll be subdued.”
37:19  It will be just a single shout, and behold, they will be staring.
37:20  They will exclaim, “Woe to us! This is Judgement Day.”
37:21  “This is the Day of Separation, which you used to deny.”
37:22  Round up those who did wrong, their partners, and what they used to worship.
37:23  Other than God, and lead them to the path of Hellfire.
37:24  But stop them, for they must be questioned.”
37:25  What’s the matter with you that you don’t help each other?
37:26  But today, they are in utter submission.
37:27  And they will turn on one another, blaming each other.
37:28  Some will say, “You used to come to us from the right.”
37:29  Others will say, “No, in fact, it was you who weren’t believers.
37:30  We had no authority over you; you were a transgressing people.
37:31  So now the word of our Lord has come true 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  This is how We deal with sinners.
37:35  When they were told, “There is no god but God,” they exhibited arrogance.
37:36  And they said, “Shall we leave our gods for a mad poet?”
37:37  He came with the truth and confirmed the messengers.
37:38  You will surely taste the severe punishment.
37:39  And you will only be recompensed for what you used to do.
37:40  Except for the chosen servants of God.
37:41  For them, there will be a known provision.
37:42  Fruits, and they will be honored.
37:43  In the Gardens of Delights.
37:44  On thrones, facing one another.
37:45  A cup filled with a drink of pure pleasure will be passed among them.
37:46  Crystal-clear, delicious to those who drink.
37:47  Causing neither headache nor intoxication.
37:48  And with them will be women restraining their glances.
37:49  As though they were hidden pearls.
37:50  They will turn to one another, questioning each other.
37:51  A speaker among them will say, “I had a close companion.
37:52  Who would say, ‘Are you among those who believe?
37:53  That when we die and become dust and bones, we will be held accountable?’”
37:54  He will then ask, “Would you care to look?”
37:55  He looked down and saw him in the midst of the Fire.
37:56  He exclaimed, “By God, you nearly led me astray!
37:57  If not for the mercy of my Lord, I would’ve been among those presented.”
37:58  “We are not to die.
37:59  Except for our first death, and we aren’t to be punished.”
37:60  Indeed, this is the great achievement.
37:61  For such, let the workers work.
37:62  Isn’t this a better hospitality than that of the Tree of Bitterness?
37:63  We made it an ordeal for the unjust.
37:64  It’s a tree that sprouts from the core of Hellfire.
37:65  Its buds are like the heads of devils.
37:66  From it, they will eat and fill their stomachs.
37:67  Then, they will have a mixture of scalding brew.
37:68  Then, their return will be to the flaming Inferno.
37:69  They found their ancestors astray.
37:70  And they rushed upon their footsteps.
37:71  Most of the earlier generations before them had also deviated.
37:72  Even though We had sent warners among them.
37:73  See, then, the end of those who were warned.
37:74  Except for the sincere servants of God.
37:75  When Noah implored Us—excellent indeed are We in answering!
37:76  We saved him and his family from the great disaster.
37:77  We made his descendants to be those who remained.
37:78  And We preserved his story for those who would come later.
37:79  Peace be upon Noah among all the nations.
37:80  Thus, do We reward those who do good.
37:81  He was one of Our faithful servants.
37:82  Then We drowned the others.
37:83  From his lineage came Abraham.
37:84  When he approached his Lord with a sound heart.
37:85  He asked his father and his people, “What do you worship?
37:86  Do you prefer false idols over God?
37:87  What’s your opinion of the Lord of the Worlds?”
37:88  He then gazed at the stars.
37:89  And he said, “I feel unwell.”
37:90  So they turned away from him, retreating.
37:91  He turned towards their gods and said, “Do you not eat?”
37:92  What’s wrong with you that you’re not speaking?”
37:93  He then turned on them, striking them down with force.
37:94  They confronted him, their hearts filled with rage.
37:95  He countered, “Do you worship what you carve?
37:96  While it is God who created you and all that you make?”
37:97  They responded, “Build a furnace for him, and throw him into the flames.”
37:98  They intended a plot against him, but We made them the lowest.
37:99  He declared, “I am going to my Lord, who will guide me.”
37:100  “My Lord, grant me righteous offspring.”
37:101  So We gave him the good news of a forbearing son.
37:102  When he was old enough to assist him, he said, “O my son, I saw in a dream that I’m sacrificing you, so see what you think?” He replied, “O my father, do as you’re commanded; you will find me, if God wills, one of the patient.”
37:103  And when they had submitted, he put him down upon his forehead.
37:104  We called out to him, “O Abraham!
37:105  You have fulfilled the vision.” Thus, do We reward those who do right.
37:106  That was a significant test.
37:107  And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice.
37:108  And We left for him favorable mention among later generations.
37:109  Peace be upon Abraham.
37:110  Thus do We reward those who do good.
37:111  He was one of Our faithful servants.
37:112  And We gave him the good news of Isaac, a prophet, one of the righteous.
37:113  We blessed him and Isaac. However, some are righteous among their descendants, while some clearly wrong themselves.
37:114  We also favored Moses and Aaron.
37:115  We saved them and their people from the great calamity.
37:116  We supported them, and they emerged as victors.
37:117  We gave them the Scripture that sheds light.
37:118  And We guided them on the straight path.
37:119  We left for them a favorable mention among later generations.
37:120  Peace be upon Moses and Aaron.
37:121  Thus do We reward those who do good.
37:122  They were among Our believing servants.
37:123  Elijah was also one of the messengers.
37:124  When he said to his people, “Will you not embrace righteousness?
37:125  Do you call upon Baal and forsake the Best of Creators?
37:126  God is your Lord and the Lord of your ancestors.”
37:127  But they rejected him, and they will be apprehended.
37:128  Except for God’s chosen servants.
37:129  We left for him a favorable mention among later generations.
37:130  Peace be upon Elijah.
37:131  Thus do We reward those who do good.
37:132  He was one of Our believing servants.
37:133  And Lot was among the messengers.
37:134  We rescued him and his entire family.
37:135  Except an elderly woman who was among those left behind.
37:136  Then We destroyed the rest.
37:137  You pass by them in the morning.
37:138  And at night. Will you not then reflect?
37:139  Jonah was also among the messengers.
37:140  When he stormed out to the laden ship.
37:141  He gambled and lost.
37:142  A whale swallowed him, and he was to blame.
37:143  Had he not been of those who glorified.
37:144  He would’ve remained in its belly until the Day they’re raised.
37:145  So, We cast him onto the barren shore, ill and weak.
37:146  And We made a gourd plant grow over him.
37:147  Then, We sent him to a hundred thousand or more.
37:148  They believed, so We gave them enjoyment for some time.
37:149  Ask them: “Does your Lord have daughters while they have sons?”
37:150  Or did We create the angels as females while they were watching?
37:151  They are speaking from their conjecture when they say.
37:152  “God has begotten.” They are liars, definitely.
37:153  Does He prefer daughters over sons?
37:154  What’s the matter with you? How do you judge?
37:155  Won’t you reflect?
37:156  Or do you have clear authority?
37:157  Then produce your scripture, if you are truthful.
37:158  And they made up a relationship between Him and the jinn, yet the jinn know well that they will be summoned.
37:159  Exalted is God, above what they describe.
37:160  Except for God’s select servants.
37:161  Neither you nor those you worship.
37:162  Can’t seduce away from Him.
37:163  Except those destined for Hell’s embrace.
37:164  “There is none among us but has a known position.
37:165  We are those who stand in rows.
37:166  And we are the praisers.”
37:167  Yet, they used to say.
37:168  “If we had a sermon from the ancients.
37:169  We would’ve been devoted servants of God.”
37:170  Yet, they disbelieved it; they will soon come to know.
37:171  Our mandate has already been conveyed to Our chosen messengers.
37:172  Definitely, they are the ones who will be victorious.
37:173  Our forces will undoubtedly triumph.
37:174  So, for a while, turn away from them.
37:175  Observe, they will soon witness.
37:176  Are they eager for Our punishment?
37:177  When it descends on their yard, how terrible will be the morning for those who were warned.
37:178  Turn aside from them for some time.
37:179  And watch; they soon will see.
37:180  Praised is your Lord, the Lord of Glory, beyond their description.
37:181  And peace be upon the messengers.
37:182  And praise be to God, the Lord of the universes.
