In The Name Of Allah The Entirely Merciful The Especially Merciful
37:1 By those [angels] lined up in rows
37:2 And those who drive [the clouds]
37:3 And those who recite the message,
37:4 Indeed, your God is One,
37:5 Lord of the heavens and the earth and that between them and Lord of the sunrises.
37:6 Indeed, We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment of stars
37:7 And as protection against every rebellious devil
37:8 [So] they may not listen to the exalted assembly [of angels] and are pelted from every side,
37:9 Repelled; and for them is a constant punishment,
37:10 Except one who snatches [some words] by theft, but they are pursued by a burning flame, piercing [in brightness].
37:11 Then inquire of them, [O Muhammad], "Are they a stronger [or more difficult] creation or those [others] We have created?" Indeed, We created men from sticky clay.
37:12 But you wonder, while they mock,
37:13 And when they are reminded, they remember not.
37:14 And when they see a sign, they ridicule
37:15 And say, "This is not but obvious magic.
37:16 When we have died and become dust and bones, are we indeed to be resurrected?
37:17 And our forefathers [as well]?"
37:18 Say, "Yes, and you will be [rendered] contemptible."
37:19 It will be only one shout, and at once they will be observing.
37:20 They will say, "O woe to us! This is the Day of Recompense."
37:21 [They will be told], "This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny."
37:22 [The angels will be ordered], "Gather those who committed wrong, their kinds, and what they used to worship
37:23 Other than Allah , and guide them to the path of Hellfire
37:24 And stop them; indeed, they are to be questioned."
37:25 [They will be asked], "What is [wrong] with you? Why do you not help each other?"
37:26 But they, that Day, are in surrender.
37:27 And they will approach one another blaming each other.
37:28 They will say, "Indeed, you used to come at us from the right."
37:29 The oppressors will say, "Rather, you [yourselves] were not believers,
37:30 And we had over you no authority, but you were a transgressing people.
37:31 So the word of our Lord has come into effect upon us; indeed, we will taste [punishment].
37:32 And we led you to deviation; indeed, we were deviators."
37:33 So indeed they, that Day, will be sharing in the punishment.
37:34 Indeed, that is how We deal with the criminals.
37:35 Indeed they, when it was said to them, "There is no deity but Allah ," were arrogant
37:36 And were saying, "Are we to leave our gods for a mad poet?"
37:37 Rather, the Prophet has come with the truth and confirmed the [previous] messengers.
37:38 Indeed, you [disbelievers] will be tasters of the painful punishment,
37:39 And you will not be recompensed except for what you used to do –
37:40 But not the chosen servants of Allah .
37:41 Those will have a provision determined –
37:42 Fruits; and they will be honored
37:43 In gardens of pleasure
37:44 On thrones facing one another.
37:45 There will be circulated among them a cup [of wine] from a flowing spring,
37:46 White and delicious to the drinkers;
37:47 No bad effect is there in it, nor from it will they be intoxicated.
37:48 And with them will be women limiting [their] glances, with large, [beautiful] eyes,
37:49 As if they were [delicate] eggs, well-protected.
37:50 And they will approach one another, inquiring of each other.
37:51 A speaker among them will say, "Indeed, I had a companion [on earth]
37:52 Who would say, 'Are you indeed of those who believe
37:53 That when we have died and become dust and bones, we will indeed be recompensed?'"
37:54 He will say, "Would you [care to] look?"
37:55 And he will look and see him in the midst of the Hellfire.
37:56 He will say, "By Allah , you almost ruined me.
37:57 If not for the favor of my Lord, I would have been of those brought in [to Hell].
37:58 Then, are we not to die
37:59 Except for our first death, and we will not be punished?"
37:60 Indeed, this is the great attainment.
37:61 For the like of this let the workers [on earth] work.
37:62 Is Paradise a better accommodation or the tree of zaqqum?
37:63 Indeed, We have made it a torment for the wrongdoers.
37:64 Indeed, it is a tree issuing from the bottom of the Hellfire,
37:65 Its emerging fruit as if it was heads of the devils.
37:66 And indeed, they will eat from it and fill with it their bellies.
37:67 Then indeed, they will have after it a mixture of scalding water.
37:68 Then indeed, their return will be to the Hellfire.
37:69 Indeed they found their fathers astray.
37:70 So they hastened [to follow] in their footsteps.
37:71 And there had already strayed before them most of the former peoples,
37:72 And We had already sent among them warners.
37:73 Then look how was the end of those who were warned –
37:74 But not the chosen servants of Allah .
37:75 And Noah had certainly called Us, and [We are] the best of responders.
37:76 And We saved him and his family from the great affliction.
37:77 And We made his descendants those remaining [on the earth]
37:78 And left for him [favorable mention] among later generations:
37:79 "Peace upon Noah among the worlds."
37:80 Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.
37:81 Indeed, he was of Our believing servants.
37:82 Then We drowned the disbelievers.
37:83 And indeed, among his kind was Abraham,
37:84 When he came to his Lord with a sound heart
37:85 [And] when he said to his father and his people, "What do you worship?
37:86 Is it falsehood [as] gods other than Allah you desire?
37:87 Then what is your thought about the Lord of the worlds?"
37:88 And he cast a look at the stars
37:89 And said, "Indeed, I am [about to be] ill."
37:90 So they turned away from him, departing.
37:91 Then he turned to their gods and said, "Do you not eat?
37:92 What is [wrong] with you that you do not speak?"
37:93 And he turned upon them a blow with [his] right hand.
37:94 Then the people came toward him, hastening.
37:95 He said, "Do you worship that which you [yourselves] carve,
37:96 While Allah created you and that which you do?"
37:97 They said, "Construct for him a furnace and throw him into the burning fire."
37:98 And they intended for him a plan, but We made them the most debased.
37:99 And [then] he said, "Indeed, I will go to [where I am ordered by] my Lord; He will guide me.
37:100 My Lord, grant me [a child] from among the righteous."
37:101 So We gave him good tidings of a forbearing boy.
37:102 And when he reached with him [the age of] exertion, he said, "O my son, indeed I have seen in a dream that I [must] sacrifice you, so see what you think." He said, "O my father, do as you are commanded. You will find me, if Allah wills, of the steadfast."
37:103 And when they had both submitted and he put him down upon his forehead,
37:104 We called to him, "O Abraham,
37:105 You have fulfilled the vision." Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.
37:106 Indeed, this was the clear trial.
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 upon Abraham."
37:110 Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.
37:111 Indeed, he was of Our believing servants.
37:112 And We gave him good tidings of Isaac, a prophet from among the righteous.
37:113 And We blessed him and Isaac. But among their descendants is the doer of good and the clearly unjust to himself.
37:114 And We did certainly confer favor upon Moses and Aaron.
37:115 And We saved them and their people from the great affliction,
37:116 And We supported them so it was they who overcame.
37:117 And We gave them the explicit Scripture,
37:118 And We guided them on the straight path.
37:119 And We left for them [favorable mention] among later generations:
37:120 "Peace upon Moses and Aaron."
37:121 Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.
37:122 Indeed, they were of Our believing servants.
37:123 And indeed, Elias was from among the messengers,
37:124 When he said to his people, "Will you not fear Allah ?
37:125 Do you call upon Ba'l and leave the best of creators –
37:126 Allah , your Lord and the Lord of your first forefathers?"
37:127 And they denied him, so indeed, they will be brought [for punishment],
37:128 Except the chosen servants of Allah .
37:129 And We left for him [favorable mention] among later generations:
37:130 "Peace upon Elias."
37:131 Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.
37:132 Indeed, he was of Our believing servants.
37:133 And indeed, Lot was among the messengers.
37:134 [So mention] when We saved him and his family, all,
37:135 Except his wife among those who remained [with the evildoers].
37:136 Then We destroyed the others.
37:137 And indeed, you pass by them in the morning
37:138 And at night. Then will you not use reason?
37:139 And indeed, Jonah was among the messengers.
37:140 [Mention] when he ran away to the laden ship.
37:141 And he drew lots and was among the losers.
37:142 Then the fish swallowed him, while he was blameworthy.
37:143 And had he not been of those who exalt Allah ,
37:144 He would have remained inside its belly until the Day they are resurrected.
37:145 But We threw him onto the open shore while he was ill.
37:146 And We caused to grow over him a gourd vine.
37:147 And We sent him to [his people of] a hundred thousand or more.
37:148 And they believed, so We gave them enjoyment [of life] for a time.
37:149 So inquire of them, [O Muhammad], "Does your Lord have daughters while they have sons?
37:150 Or did We create the angels as females while they were witnesses?"
37:151 Unquestionably, it is out of their [invented] falsehood that they say,
37:152 " Allah has begotten," and indeed, they are liars.
37:153 Has He chosen daughters over sons?
37:154 What is [wrong] with you? How do you make judgement?
37:155 Then will you not be reminded?
37:156 Or do you have a clear authority?
37:157 Then produce your scripture, if you should be truthful.
37:158 And they have claimed between Him and the jinn a lineage, but the jinn have already known that they [who made such claims] will be brought to [punishment].
37:159 Exalted is Allah above what they describe,
37:160 Except the chosen servants of Allah [who do not share in that sin].
37:161 So indeed, you [disbelievers] and whatever you worship,
37:162 You cannot tempt [anyone] away from Him
37:163 Except he who is to [enter and] burn in the Hellfire.
37:164 [The angels say], "There is not among us any except that he has a known position.
37:165 And indeed, we are those who line up [for prayer].
37:166 And indeed, we are those who exalt Allah ."
37:167 And indeed, the disbelievers used to say,
37:168 "If we had a message from [those of] the former peoples,
37:169 We would have been the chosen servants of Allah ."
37:170 But they disbelieved in it, so they are going to know.
37:171 And Our word has already preceded for Our servants, the messengers,
37:172 [That] indeed, they would be those given victory
37:173 And [that] indeed, Our soldiers will be those who overcome.
37:174 So, [O Muhammad], leave them for a time.
37:175 And see [what will befall] them, for they are going to see.
37:176 Then for Our punishment are they impatient?
37:177 But when it descends in their territory, then evil is the morning of those who were warned.
37:178 And leave them for a time.
37:179 And see, for they are going to see.
37:180 Exalted is your Lord, the Lord of might, above what they describe.
37:181 And peace upon the messengers.
37:182 And praise to Allah , Lord of the worlds.
