37: As-Saffat (الصافات)

Audio Surah: AS-SAFFAT

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.
