[37.1] By the aligners (angels) aligning.
[37.2] and the drivers driving,
[37.3] and those who recite the Remembrance
[37.4] surely, your God is One,
[37.5] the Lord of the heavens and the earth and of all that is between them; the Lord of the Easts.
[37.6] We have adorned the lower heaven with the adornment of the planets,
[37.7] a protection against every rebel satan;
[37.8] so they cannot listen to the High Assembly, for they are pelted from every side.
[37.9] They are rejected and theirs is an everlasting punishment;
[37.10] except such as snatches a fragment, and he is pursued by a piercing flame.
[37.11] So ask them, are they stronger in constitution, or those whom We have created. We have created them of sticky clay.
[37.12] No, you marvel, while they scoff.
[37.13] When they are reminded, they do not remember.
[37.14] When they are shown a sign, they scoff at it
[37.15] and say: 'This is nothing but clear sorcery!'
[37.16] What, when we are dead and become dust and bones, shall we be resurrected.
[37.17] What, and our forefathers, the ancients!'
[37.18] Say: 'Yes, but worthless.'
[37.19] It will be but one Shout, then see, they are watching
[37.20] and they will say: 'Woe for us. This is the Day of Recompense.'
[37.21] This is the Day of Decision which you belied.
[37.22] Gather together the evildoers, their wives, and that they were worshipping,
[37.23] other than Allah, and guide them to the Path of Hell!
[37.24] And halt them so that they may be questioned.
[37.25] 'Why do you not help one another?
[37.26] No, today they will resign themselves in submission,
[37.27] and approach each other with questions,
[37.28] saying: 'You used to come to us from the right hand.'
[37.29] But they reply: 'Rather, you were not believers.
[37.30] We had no authority over you, but you were an insolent nation.
[37.31] The statement of Our Lord is realized against us, and we are tasting it,
[37.32] we perverted you, indeed, we were perverts.'
[37.33] Therefore, on that Day they will all share Our punishment.
[37.34] As such We shall deal with the evildoers.
[37.35] For when it was said to them: 'There is no god except Allah,' they were always proud
[37.36] and said: 'Are we to renounce our gods for the sake of a mad poet?'
[37.37] No, indeed, he has brought the truth, and confirmed the Messengers.
[37.38] You shall certainly taste the painful punishment:
[37.39] but you shall not be recompensed except for what you were doing.
[37.40] But for the sincere worshipers of Allah,
[37.41] there is waiting for them a known provision;
[37.42] fruits. And they are receivers of generosity
[37.43] in the Gardens of Delight,
[37.44] sitting face to face upon couches,
[37.45] a goblet from a spring shall be passed round to them
[37.46] white, a delight to the drinkers,
[37.47] there is neither sickness in it, nor intoxication.
[37.48] And with them will be maidens (houris) who restrain their wide glances
[37.49] as if they were hidden pearls.
[37.50] They will go to one another asking each other questions.
[37.51] One of them will say: 'I had a companion
[37.52] who would say: "Are you among the believers (of the resurrection)?
[37.53] When we are dead and turned to dust and bones, shall we be recompensed?"
[37.54] And he will reply: 'Are you looking down (into Hell)?'
[37.55] Then, he will look and see him in the midst of Hell.
[37.56] 'By Allah,' he will say, 'you almost destroyed me!
[37.57] But for the Favor of Allah I should have surely been among those who were arraigned (with you in Hell).
[37.58] What then, shall we not die
[37.59] except our first death, and shall we not be punished?'
[37.60] Indeed, this is the mighty victory,
[37.61] and for the like of this let the workers work.
[37.62] Is this a better hospitality or the tree of Az-Zakkum!
[37.63] We have made this (tree) a trial for the evildoers.
[37.64] It is a tree that grows from the bottom of Hell;
[37.65] its spathes are like the heads of satans
[37.66] on it they shall feed, and with it they shall fill their bellies.
[37.67] On top of it they shall have a brew of boiling water,
[37.68] then their return is to Hell.
[37.69] They found their fathers in error,
[37.70] yet they run in their footsteps,
[37.71] yet before them most of the ancients went astray,
[37.72] though We had sent among them warners.
[37.73] See then the end of those who were warned,
[37.74] except the sincere worshipers of Allah.
[37.75] Noah called to Us, and We are the Best to answer.
[37.76] We saved him and his people from the great distress,
[37.77] and We made his offspring the survivors.
[37.78] And We let it remain upon him in the latter:
[37.79] 'Peace be upon Noah among all the worlds.'
[37.80] As such We recompense the good-doers,
[37.81] he was one of Our believing worshipers.
[37.82] Afterwards We drowned the others.
[37.83] Of his party was Abraham.
[37.84] (Remember when) he came to his Lord with a pure heart;
[37.85] and when he said to his father and to his nation: 'What do you worship?
[37.86] It is falsehood that you desire gods other than Allah!
[37.87] What do you think of the Lord of the Worlds?'
[37.88] He cast a glance at the stars
[37.89] and said: 'Surely, I am sick (of what you worship)!'
[37.90] But they turned their backs and went away from him.
[37.91] Then he turned to their gods, and said: 'What do you eat?
[37.92] What is the matter with you, that you do not speak?'
[37.93] And he turned upon them striking them with the right hand.
[37.94] Thereafter they (the people) came to him in haste.
[37.95] He said: 'Do you worship what you, yourselves have carved
[37.96] when it is Allah who created you and all that you do?'
[37.97] They replied: 'Build for him a building and cast him into the fire.'
[37.98] Their desire was to outwit him, but We made them to be the humiliated.
[37.99] He said: 'I will go to my Lord; He will guide me.
[37.100] My Lord, grant me a righteous (son).'
[37.101] And We gave him the glad tidings of a very gentle son (Ishmael).
[37.102] And when he reached the age of traveling with him, he said: 'My son, while I was sleeping I saw that I shall slaughter (sacrifice) you, tell me what is your opinion.' He replied: 'Father, do as you are ordered (by Allah). Allah willing, you shall find me one of those who are steadfast.'
[37.103] And when they had both submitted, and his son had laid down prostrate upon his forehead,
[37.104] We called to him, saying: 'O Abraham,
[37.105] you have confirmed your vision.' As such We recompense the good-doers.
[37.106] That was indeed a clear trial.
[37.107] So, We ransomed him with a mighty sacrifice,
[37.108] and We let it (the beautiful praise) remain upon him in the latter (generations),
[37.109] 'Peace be upon Abraham!'
[37.110] As such We recompense the good-doers.
[37.111] He was one of Our believing worshipers.
[37.112] Then, We gave him the glad tidings of Isaac, a Prophet, one of the righteous,
[37.113] and We blessed him and Isaac, and from their offspring are some good-doers, and others who clearly wronged themselves.
[37.114] We also favored Moses and Aaron
[37.115] and We saved them with their nation from a great distress.
[37.116] We helped them, and they became victorious,
[37.117] and We gave them the Clear Book,
[37.118] and guided them upon the Straight Path.
[37.119] And We let it (the beautiful praise) remain upon on both of them in the latter (generations),
[37.120] 'Peace be upon Moses and Aaron!'
[37.121] As such We recompense the good-doers.
[37.122] They were among Our believing worshipers.
[37.123] And Elias (El Yaseen) was among the Messengers.
[37.124] He asked his people: 'Do you not fear (Allah)?
[37.125] Do you call on Ba'lan (the idol Baal) and abandon the Best Creator,
[37.126] Allah is your Lord and the Lord of your fathers, the ancients.'
[37.127] But they belied him, so they will be among the arraigned (in Hell),
[37.128] except the sincere worshipers of Allah.
[37.129] And We let it (the beautiful praise) remain upon him in the latter (generations),
[37.130] 'Peace be upon El Yaseen!'
[37.131] As such We recompense the good-doers.
[37.132] He was among Our believing worshipers.
[37.133] Lot, too, was among the Messengers.
[37.134] We saved him and all his kinsmen,
[37.135] except an old woman who lingered,
[37.136] and We destroyed the others.
[37.137] You pass by them in the morning
[37.138] and at night, will you not understand?
[37.139] Jonah, too, was one of the Messengers.
[37.140] He ran away to the laden ship,
[37.141] and cast lots, and he was among the losers (of the lots that were cast).
[37.142] So the whale swallowed him, for he was blameworthy,
[37.143] and had he not been among those who exalt (Allah),
[37.144] he would have lingered in its belly till the Day they are resurrected.
[37.145] But We cast him, upon the shore, and he was ill,
[37.146] and We caused a pumpkin tree to grow over him.
[37.147] Then We sent him to a hundred thousand or more,
[37.148] and they believed, and We gave them enjoyment for awhile.
[37.149] Now, ask them, has your Lord daughters, and they sons?
[37.150] Or, did We create the angels females while they were witnessing?
[37.151] Then is it of their lying that they say:
[37.152] 'Allah has begotten?' They are truly liars.
[37.153] Has He chosen daughters above sons?
[37.154] What is the matter with you? How do you judge?
[37.155] What, will you not remember?
[37.156] Or, do you have a clear authority?
[37.157] Bring your Book, if what you say is true!
[37.158] They assert kinship between Him and the angels. But the angels know that they (the liars) will be arraigned (in Hell).
[37.159] Exaltations to Allah above what they describe,
[37.160] except for the sincere worshipers of Allah.
[37.161] But as for you, and that you worship,
[37.162] you shall tempt none against Him
[37.163] except for he who shall roast in Hell.
[37.164] (Gabriel said to the Prophet): 'Each of us has a known place.
[37.165] We are surely those who are arranged in ranks.
[37.166] And we are they who exalt (Allah).'
[37.167] What, would they then say:
[37.168] 'If only we had a reminder from the ancients,
[37.169] we would have been sincere worshipers of Allah.'
[37.170] But they disbelieve in it (the Koran), but soon they shall know!
[37.171] Our Word had already preceded Our worshipers, the Messengers,
[37.172] that they shall receive Our help
[37.173] and Our armies shall be the victors.
[37.174] So turn (away) from them for a while.
[37.175] See them and soon they shall see.
[37.176] What, do they seek to hasten Our punishment?
[37.177] When it descends upon their courtyards, evil will be the morning of those forewarned.
[37.178] So turn (away) from them for a while,
[37.179] and see, soon they shall see!
[37.180] Exaltations be to your Lord, the Lord of Might, above that they describe!
[37.181] Peace be on the Messengers.
[37.182] And praise belongs to Allah, Lord of the Worlds.
