037.000 Drawn Up in Ranks

 

037.001

By those who set the ranks in battle order

037.002

And those who drive away (the wicked) with reproof

037.003

And those who read (the Word) for a reminder,

037.004

Lo! thy Lord is surely One;

037.005

Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all that is between them, and Lord of the sun's risings.

037.006

Lo! We have adorned the lowest heaven with an ornament, the planets;

037.007

With security from every froward devil.

037.008

They cannot listen to the Highest Chiefs for they are pelted from every side,

037.009

Outcast, and theirs is a perpetual torment;

037.010

Save him who snatcheth a fragment, and there pursueth him a piercing flame.

037.011

Then ask them (O Muhammad): Are they stronger as a creation, or those (others) whom we have created ? Lo! We created them of plastic clay.

037.012

Nay, but thou dost marvel when they mock

037.013

And heed not when they are reminded,

037.014

And seek to scoff when they behold a portent.

037.015

And they say: Lo! this is mere magic;

037.016

When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then, forsooth, be raised (again) ?

037.017

And our forefathers ?

037.018

Say (O Muhammad): Ye, in truth; and ye will be brought low.

037.019

There is but one Shout, and lo! they behold,

037.020

And say: Ah, woe for us! This is the Day of Judgment.

037.021

This is the Day of Separation, which ye used to deny.

037.022

(And it is said unto the angels): Assemble those who did wrong, together with their wives and what they used to worship

037.023

Instead of Allah, and lead them to the path to hell;

037.024

And stop them, for they must be questioned.

037.025

What aileth you that ye help not one another ?

037.026

Nay, but this day they make full submission.

037.027

And some of them draw near unto others, mutually questioning.

037.028

They say: Lo! ye used to come unto us, imposing, (swearing that ye spoke the truth).

037.029

They answer: Nay, but ye (yourselves) were not believers.

037.030

We had no power over you, but ye were wayward folk.

037.031

Now the Word of our Lord hath been fulfilled concerning us. Lo! we are about to taste (the doom).

037.032

Thus we misled you. Lo! we were (ourselves) astray.

037.033

Then lo! this day they (both) are sharers in the doom.

037.034

Lo! thus deal We with the guilty.

037.035

For when it was said unto them, There is no God save Allah, they were scornful

037.036

And said: Shall we forsake our gods for a mad poet ?

037.037

Nay, but he brought the Truth, and he confirmed those sent (before him).

037.038

Lo! (now) verily ye taste the painful doom -

037.039

Ye are requited naught save what ye did -

037.040

Save single-minded slaves of Allah;

037.041

For them there is a known provision,

037.042

Fruits. And they will be honoured

037.043

In the Gardens of delight,

037.044

On couches facing one another;

037.045

A cup from a gushing spring is brought round for them,

037.046

White, delicious to the drinkers,

037.047

Wherein there is no headache nor are they made mad thereby.

037.048

And with them are those of modest gaze, with lovely eyes,

037.049

(Pure) as they were hidden eggs (of the ostrich).

037.050

And some of them draw near unto others, mutually questioning.

037.051

A speaker of them saith: Lo! I had a comrade

037.052

Who used to say: Art thou in truth of those who put faith (in his words) ?

037.053

Can we, when we are dead and have become mere dust and bones - can we (then) verily be brought to book ?

037.054

He saith: Will ye look ?

037.055

Then looketh he and seeth him in the depth of hell.

037.056

He saith: By Allah, thou verily didst all but cause my ruin,

037.057

And had it not been for the favour of my Lord, I too had been of those haled forth (to doom).

037.058

Are we then not to die

037.059

Saving our former death, and are we not to be punished ?

037.060

Lo! this is the supreme triumph.

037.061

For the like of this, then, let the workers work.

037.062

Is this better as a welcome, or the tree of Zaqqum ?

037.063

Lo! We have appointed it a torment for wrong-doers.

037.064

Lo! it is a tree that springeth in the heart of hell.

037.065

Its crop is as it were the heads of devils

037.066

And lo! they verily must eat thereof, and fill (their) bellies therewith.

037.067

And afterward, lo! thereupon they have a drink of boiling water

037.068

And afterward, lo! their return is surely unto hell.

037.069

They indeed found their fathers astray,

037.070

But they make haste (to follow) in their footsteps.

037.071

And verily most of the men of old went astray before them,

037.072

And verily We sent among them warners.

037.073

Then see the nature of the consequence for those warned,

037.074

Save single-minded slaves of Allah.

037.075

And Noah verily prayed unto Us, and gracious was the Hearer of his prayer

037.076

And We saved him and his household from the great distress,

037.077

And made his seed the survivors,

037.078

And left for him among the later folk (the salutation):

037.079

Peace be unto Noah among the peoples!

037.080

Lo! thus do We reward the good.

037.081

Lo! he is one of Our believing slaves.

037.082

Then We did drown the others.

037.083

And lo! of his persuasion verily was Abraham

037.084

When he came unto his Lord with a whole heart;

037.085

When he said unto his father and his folk: What is it that ye worship ?

037.086

Is it a falsehood - gods beside Allah - that ye desire ?

037.087

What then is your opinion of the Lord of the Worlds ?

037.088

And he glanced a glance at the stars

037.089

Then said: Lo! I feel sick!

037.090

And they turned their backs and went away from him.

037.091

Then turned he to their gods and said: Will ye not eat ?

037.092

What aileth you that ye speak not ?

037.093

Then he attacked them, striking with his right hand.

037.094

And (his people) came toward him, hastening.

037.095

He said: Worship ye that which ye yourselves do carve

037.096

When Allah hath created you and what ye make ?

037.097

They said: Build for him a building and fling him in the red-hotfire.

037.098

And they designed a snare for him, but We made them the undermost.

037.099

And he said: Lo! I am going unto my Lord Who will guide me.

037.100

My Lord! Vouchsafe me of the righteous.

037.101

So We gave him tidings of a gentle son.

037.102

And when (his son) was old enough to walk with him, (Abraham) said: O my dear son, I have seen in a dream that I must sacrifice thee. So look, what thinkest thou ? He said: O my father! Do that which thou art commanded. Allah willing, thou shalt find me of the steadfast.

037.103

Then, when they had both surrendered (to Allah), and he had flung him down upon his face,

037.104

We called unto him: O Abraham!

037.105

Thou hast already fulfilled the vision. Lo! thus do We reward the good.

037.106

Lo! that verily was a clear test.

037.107

Then We ransomed him with a tremendous victim.

037.108

And We left for him among the later folk (the salutation):

037.109

Peace be unto Abraham!

037.110

Thus do We reward the good.

037.111

Lo! he is one of Our believing slaves.

037.112

And we gave him tidings of the birth of Isaac, a prophet of the righteous.

037.113

And We blessed him and Isaac. And of their seed are some who do good, and some who plainly wrong themselves.

037.114

And We verily gave grace unto Moses and Aaron,

037.115

And saved them and their people from the great distress,

037.116

And helped them so that they became the victors.

037.117

And We gave them the clear Scripture

037.118

And showed them the right path.

037.119

And We left for them among the later folk (the salutation):

037.120

Peace be unto Moses and Aaron!

037.121

Lo! thus do We reward the good.

037.122

Lo! they are two of Our believing slaves.

037.123

And lo! Elias was of those sent (to warn),

037.124

When he said unto his folk: Will ye not ward off (evil) ?

037.125

Will ye cry unto Baal and forsake the Best of creators,

037.126

Allah, your Lord and Lord of your forefathers ?

037.127

But they denied him, so they surely will be haled forth (to the doom)

037.128

Save single-minded slaves of Allah.

037.129

And we left for him among the later folk (the salutation):

037.130

Peace be unto Elias!

037.131

Lo! thus do We reward the good.

037.132

Lo! he is one of our believing slaves.

037.133

And lo! Lot verily was of those sent (to warn).

037.134

When We saved him and his household, every one,

037.135

Save an old woman among those who stayed behind;

037.136

Then We destroyed the others.

037.137

And lo! ye verily pass by (the ruin of) them in the morning

037.138

And at night-time; have ye then no sense ?

037.139

And lo! Jonah verily was of those sent (to warn)

037.140

When he fled unto the laden ship,

037.141

And then drew lots and was of those rejected;

037.142

And the fish swallowed him while he was blameworthy;

037.143

And had he not been one of those who glorify (Allah)

037.144

He would have tarried in its belly till the day when they are raised;

037.145

Then We cast him on a desert shore while he was sick;

037.146

And We caused a tree of gourd to grow above him;

037.147

And We sent him to a hundred thousand (folk) or more

037.148

And they believed, therefor We gave them comfort for a while.

037.149

Now ask them (O Muhammad): Hath thy Lord daughters whereas they have sons ?

037.150

Or created We the angels females while they were present ?

037.151

Lo! it is of their falsehood that they say:

037.152

Allah hath begotten. Allah! verily they tell a lie.

037.153

(And again of their falsehood): He hath preferred daughters to sons.

037.154

What aileth you ? How judge ye ?

037.155

Will ye not then reflect ?

037.156

Or have ye a clear warrant ?

037.157

Then produce your writ, if ye are truthful.

037.158

And they imagine kinship between him and the jinn, whereas the jinn know well that they will be brought before (Him).

037.159

Glorified be Allah from that which they attribute (unto Him),

037.160

Save single-minded slaves of Allah.

037.161

Lo! verily, ye and that which ye worship,

037.162

Ye cannot excite (anyone) against Him.

037.163

Save him who is to burn in hell.

037.164

There is not one of us but hath his known position.

037.165

Lo! we, even we are they who set the ranks,

037.166

Lo! we, even we are they who hymn His praise

037.167

And indeed they used to say:

037.168

If we had but a reminder from the men of old

037.169

We would be single-minded slaves of Allah.

037.170

Yet (now that it is come) they disbelieve therein; but they will come to know.

037.171

And verily Our word went forth of old unto Our bondmen sent (to warn)

037.172

That they verily would be helped,

037.173

And that Our host, they verily would be the victors.

037.174

So withdraw from them (O Muhammad) awhile,

037.175

And watch, for they will (soon) see.

037.176

Would they hasten on Our doom ?

037.177

But when it cometh home to them, then it will be a hapless morn for those who have been warned.

037.178

Withdraw from them awhile

037.179

And watch, for they will (soon) see.

037.180

Glorified be thy Lord, the Lord of Majesty, from that which they attribute (unto Him)

037.181

And peace be unto those sent (to warn).

037.182

And praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds!
