37: As-Saffat (الصافات)
1: I swear by those who draw themselves out in ranks
2: Then those who drive away with reproof,
3: Then those who recite, being mindful,
4: Most surely your Allah is One:
5: The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, and Lord of the easts.
6: Surely We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment, the stars,
7: And (there is) a safeguard against every rebellious Shaitan.
8: They cannot listen to the exalted assembly and they are thrown at from every side,
9: Being driven off, and for them is a perpetual chastisement,
10: Except him who snatches off but once, then there follows him a brightly shining flame.
11: Then ask them whether they are stronger in creation or those (others) whom We have created. Surely We created them of firm clay.
12: Nay! you wonder while they mock,
13: And when they are reminded, they mind not,
14: And when they see a sign they incite one another to scoff,
15: And they say: This is nothing but clear magic:
16: What! when we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then certainly be raised,
17: Or our fathers of yore?
18: Say: Aye! and you shall be abject.
19: So it shall only be a single cry, when lo! they shall see.
20: And they shall say: O woe to us! this is the day of requital.
21: This is the day of the judgment which you called a lie.
22: Gather together those who were unjust and their associates, and what they used to worship
23: Besides Allah, then lead them to the way to hell.
24: And stop them, for they shall be questioned:
25: What is the matter with you that you do not help each other?
26: Nay! on that day they shall be submissive.
27: And some of them shall advance towards others, questioning each other.
28: They shall say: Surely you used to come to us from the right side.
29: They shall say: Nay, you (yourselves) were not believers;
30: And we had no authority over you, but you were an inordinate people;
31: So the sentence of our Lord has come to pass against us: (now) we shall surely taste;
32: So we led you astray, for we ourselves were erring.
33: So they shall on that day be sharers in the chastisement one with another.
34: Surely thus do We deal with the guilty.
35: Surely they used to behave proudly when it was said to them: There is no god but Allah;
36: And to say: What! shall we indeed give up our gods for the sake of a mad poet?
37: Nay: he has come with the truth and verified the messengers.
38: Most surely you will taste the painful punishment.
39: And you shall not be rewarded except (for) what you did.
40: Save the servants of Allah, the purified ones.
41: For them is a known sustenance,
42: Fruits, and they shall be highly honored,
43: In gardens of pleasure,
44: On thrones, facing each other.
45: A bowl shall be made to go round them from water running out of springs,
46: White, delicious to those who drink.
47: There shall be no trouble in it, nor shall they be exhausted therewith.
48: And with them shall be those who restrain the eyes, having beautiful eyes;
49: As if they were eggs carefully protected.
50: Then shall some of them advance to others, questioning each other.
51: A speaker from among them shall say: Surely I had a comrade of mine,
52: Who said: What! are you indeed of those who accept (the truth)?
53: What! when we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then be certainly brought to judgment?
54: He shall say: Will you look on?
55: Then he looked down and saw him in the midst of hell.
56: He shall say: By Allah! you had almost caused me to perish;
57: And had it not been for the favor of my Lord, I would certainly have been among those brought up.
58: Is it then that we are not going to die,
59: Except our previous death? And we shall not be chastised?
60: Most surely this is the mighty achievement.
61: For the like of this then let the workers work.
62: Is this better as an entertainment or the tree of Zaqqum?
63: Surely We have made it to be a trial to the unjust.
64: Surely it is a tree that-grows in the bottom of the hell;
65: Its produce is as it were the heads of the serpents.
66: Then most surely they shall eat of it and fill (their) bellies with it.
67: Then most surely they shall have after it to drink of a mixture prepared in boiling water.
68: Then most surely their return shall be to hell.
69: Surely they found their fathers going astray,
70: So in their footsteps they are being hastened on.
71: And certainly most of the ancients went astray before them,
72: And certainly We sent among them warners.
73: Then see how was the end of those warned,
74: Except the servants of Allah, the purified ones.
75: And Nuh did certainly call upon Us, and most excellent answerer of prayer are We.
76: And We delivered him and his followers from the mighty distress.
77: And We made his offspring the survivors.
78: And We perpetuated to him (praise) among the later generations.
79: Peace and salutation to Nuh among the nations.
80: Thus do We surely reward the doers of good.
81: Surely he was of Our believing servants.
82: Then We drowned the others
83: And most surely Ibrahim followed his way.
84: When he came to his Lord with a free heart,
85: When he said to his father and his people: What is it that you worship?
86: A lie-- gods besides Allah-- do you desire?
87: What is then your idea about the Lord of the worlds?
88: Then he looked at the stars, looking up once,
89: Then he said: Surely I am sick (of your worshipping these).
90: So they went away from him, turning back.
91: Then he turned aside to their gods secretly and said: What! do you not eat?
92: What is the matter with you that you do not speak?
93: Then he turned against them secretly, smiting them with the right hand.
94: So they (people) advanced towards him, hastening.
95: Said he: What! do you worship what you hew out?
96: And Allah has created you and what you make.
97: They said: Build for him a furnace, then cast him into the burning fire.
98: And they desired a war against him, but We brought them low.
99: And he said: Surely I fly to my lord; He will guide me.
100: My Lord! grant me of the doers of good deeds.
101: So We gave him the good news of a boy, possessing forbearance.
102: And when he attained to working with him, he said: O my son! surely I have seen in a dream that I should sacrifice you; consider then what you see. He said: O my father! do what you are commanded; if Allah please, you will find me of the patient ones.
103: So when they both submitted and he threw him down upon his forehead,
104: And We called out to him saying: O Ibrahim!
105: You have indeed shown the truth of the vision; surely thus do We reward the doers of good:
106: Most surely this is a manifest trial.
107: And We ransomed him with a Feat sacrifice.
108: And We perpetuated (praise) to him among the later generations.
109: Peace be on Ibrahim.
110: Thus do We reward the doers of good.
111: Surely he was one of Our believing servants.
112: And We gave him the good news of Ishaq, a prophet among the good ones.
113: And We showered Our blessings on him and on Ishaq; and of their offspring are the doers of good, and (also) those who are clearly unjust to their own souls.
114: And certainly We conferred a favor on Musa and Haroun.
115: And We delivered them both and their people from the mighty distress.
116: And We helped them, so they were the vanquishers.
117: And We gave them both the Book that made (things) clear.
118: And We guided them both on the right way.
119: And We perpetuated (praise) to them among the later generations.
120: Peace be on Musa and Haroun.
121: Even thus do We reward the doers of good.
122: Surely they were both of Our believing servants.
123: And Ilyas was most surely of the messengers.
124: When he said to his people: Do you not guard (against evil)?
125: What! do you call upon Ba'l and forsake the best of the creators,
126: Allah, your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of yore?
127: But they called him a liar, therefore they shall most surely be brought up.
128: But not the servants of Allah, the purified ones.
129: And We perpetuated to him (praise) among the later generations.
130: Peace be on Ilyas.
131: Even thus do We reward the doers of good.
132: Surely he was one of Our believing servants.
133: And Lut was most surely of the messengers.
134: When We delivered him and his followers, all--
135: Except an old woman (who was) amongst those who tarried.
136: Then We destroyed the others.
137: And most surely you pass by them in the morning,
138: And at night; do you not then understand?
139: And Yunus was most surely of the messengers.
140: When he ran away to a ship completely laden,
141: So he shared (with them), but was of those who are cast off.
142: So the fish swallowed him while he did that for which he blamed himself
143: But had it not been that he was of those who glorify (Us),
144: He would certainly have tarried in its belly to the day when they are raised.
145: Then We cast him on to the vacant surface of the earth while he was sick.
146: And We caused to grow up for him a gourdplant.
147: And We sent him to a hundred thousand, rather they exceeded.
148: And they believed, so We gave them provision till a time.
149: Then ask them whether your Lord has daughters and they have sons.
150: Or did We create the angels females while they were witnesses?
151: Now surely it is of their own lie that they say:
152: Allah has begotten; and most surely they are liars.
153: Has He chosen daughters in preference to sons?
154: What is the matter with you, how is it that you judge?
155: Will you not then mind?
156: Or have you a clear authority?
157: Then bring your book, if you are truthful.
158: And they assert a relationship between Him and the jinn; and certainly the jinn do know that they shall surely be brought up;
159: Glory be to Allah (for freedom) from what they describe;
160: But not so the servants of Allah, the purified ones.
161: So surely you and what you worship,
162: Not against Him can you cause (any) to fall into trial,
163: Save him who will go to hell.
164: And there is none of us but has an assigned place,
165: And most surely we are they who draw themselves out in ranks,
166: And we are most surely they who declare the glory (of Allah).
167: And surely they used to say:
168: Had we a reminder from those of yore,
169: We would certainly have been the servants of Allah-- the purified ones.
170: But (now) they disbelieve in it, so they will come to know.
171: And certainly Our word has already gone forth in respect of Our servants, the messengers:
172: Most surely they shall be the assisted ones
173: And most surely Our host alone shall be the victorious ones.
174: Therefore turn away from them till a time,
175: And (then) see them, so they too shall see.
176: What! would they then hasten on Our chastisement?
177: But when it shall descend in their court, evil shall then be the morning of the warned ones.
178: And turn away from them till a time
179: And (then) see, for they too shall see.
180: Glory be to your Lord, the Lord of Honor, above what they describe.
181: And peace be on the messengers.
182: And all praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.
