37:1 - By those who set the ranks in battle order 37:2 - And those who drive away (the wicked) with reproof 37:3 - And those who read (the Word) for a reminder, 37:4 - Lo! thy Lord is surely One; 37:5 - Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all that is between them, and Lord of the sun's risings. 37:6 - Lo! We have adorned the lowest heaven with an ornament, the planets; 37:7 - With security from every froward devil. 37:8 - They cannot listen to the Highest Chiefs for they are pelted from every side, 37:9 - Outcast, and theirs is a perpetual torment; 37:10 - Save him who snatcheth a fragment, and there pursueth him a piercing flame. 37:11 - 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. 37:12 - Nay, but thou dost marvel when they mock 37:13 - And heed not when they are reminded, 37:14 - And seek to scoff when they behold a portent. 37:15 - And they say: Lo! this is mere magic; 37:16 - When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then, forsooth, be raised (again)? 37:17 - And our forefathers? 37:18 - Say (O Muhammad): Ye, in truth; and ye will be brought low. 37:19 - There is but one Shout, and lo! they behold, 37:20 - And say: Ah, woe for us! This is the Day of Judgment. 37:21 - This is the Day of Separation, which ye used to deny. 37:22 - (And it is said unto the angels): Assemble those who did wrong, together with their wives and what they used to worship 37:23 - Instead of Allah, and lead them to the path to hell; 37:24 - And stop them, for they must be questioned. 37:25 - What aileth you that ye help not one another? 37:26 - Nay, but this day they make full submission. 37:27 - And some of them draw near unto others, mutually questioning. 37:28 - They say: Lo! ye used to come unto us, imposing, (swearing that ye spoke the truth). 37:29 - They answer: Nay, but ye (yourselves) were not believers. 37:30 - We had no power over you, but ye were wayward folk. 37:31 - Now the Word of our Lord hath been fulfilled concerning us. Lo! we are about to taste (the doom). 37:32 - Thus we misled you. Lo! we were (ourselves) astray. 37:33 - Then lo! this day they (both) are sharers in the doom. 37:34 - Lo! thus deal We with the guilty. 37:35 - For when it was said unto them, There is no Allah save Allah, they were scornful 37:36 - And said: Shall we forsake our gods for a mad poet? 37:37 - Nay, but he brought the Truth, and he confirmed those sent (before him). 37:38 - Lo! (now) verily ye taste the painful doom - 37:39 - Ye are requited naught save what ye did - 37:40 - Save single-minded slaves of Allah; 37:41 - For them there is a known provision, 37:42 - Fruits. And they will be honoured 37:43 - In the Gardens of delight, 37:44 - On couches facing one another; 37:45 - A cup from a gushing spring is brought round for them, 37:46 - White, delicious to the drinkers, 37:47 - Wherein there is no headache nor are they made mad thereby. 37:48 - And with them are those of modest gaze, with lovely eyes, 37:49 - (Pure) as they were hidden eggs (of the ostrich). 37:50 - And some of them draw near unto others, mutually questioning. 37:51 - A speaker of them saith: Lo! I had a comrade 37:52 - Who used to say: Art thou in truth of those who put faith (in his words)? 37:53 - Can we, when we are dead and have become mere dust and bones - can we (then) verily be brought to book? 37:54 - He saith: Will ye look? 37:55 - Then looketh he and seeth him in the depth of hell. 37:56 - He saith: By Allah, thou verily didst all but cause my ruin, 37:57 - And had it not been for the favour of my Lord, I too had been of those haled forth (to doom). 37:58 - Are we then not to die 37:59 - Saving our former death, and are we not to be punished? 37:60 - Lo! this is the supreme triumph. 37:61 - For the like of this, then, let the workers work. 37:62 - Is this better as a welcome, or the tree of Zaqqum? 37:63 - Lo! We have appointed it a torment for wrong-doers. 37:64 - Lo! it is a tree that springeth in the heart of hell. 37:65 - Its crop is as it were the heads of devils 37:66 - And lo! they verily must eat thereof, and fill (their) bellies therewith. 37:67 - And afterward, lo! thereupon they have a drink of boiling water 37:68 - And afterward, lo! their return is surely unto hell. 37:69 - They indeed found their fathers astray, 37:70 - But they make haste (to follow) in their footsteps. 37:71 - And verily most of the men of old went astray before them, 37:72 - And verily We sent among them warners. 37:73 - Then see the nature of the consequence for those warned, 37:74 - Save single-minded slaves of Allah. 37:75 - And Noah verily prayed unto Us, and gracious was the Hearer of his prayer 37:76 - And We saved him and his household from the great distress, 37:77 - And made his seed the survivors, 37:78 - And left for him among the later folk (the salutation): 37:79 - Peace be unto Noah among the peoples! 37:80 - Lo! thus do We reward the good. 37:81 - Lo! he is one of Our believing slaves. 37:82 - Then We did drown the others. 37:83 - And lo! of his persuasion verily was Abraham 37:84 - When he came unto his Lord with a whole heart; 37:85 - When he said unto his father and his folk: What is it that ye worship? 37:86 - Is it a falsehood - gods beside Allah - that ye desire? 37:87 - What then is your opinion of the Lord of the Worlds? 37:88 - And he glanced a glance at the stars 37:89 - Then said: Lo! I feel sick! 37:90 - And they turned their backs and went away from him. 37:91 - Then turned he to their gods and said: Will ye not eat? 37:92 - What aileth you that ye speak not? 37:93 - Then he attacked them, striking with his right hand. 37:94 - And (his people) came toward him, hastening. 37:95 - He said: Worship ye that which ye yourselves do carve 37:96 - When Allah hath created you and what ye make? 37:97 - They said: Build for him a building and fling him in the red-hotfire. 37:98 - And they designed a snare for him, but We made them the undermost. 37:99 - And he said: Lo! I am going unto my Lord Who will guide me. 37:100 - My Lord! Vouchsafe me of the righteous. 37:101 - So We gave him tidings of a gentle son. 37:102 - 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. 37:103 - Then, when they had both surrendered (to Allah), and he had flung him down upon his face, 37:104 - We called unto him: O Abraham! 37:105 - Thou hast already fulfilled the vision. Lo! thus do We reward the good. 37:106 - Lo! that verily was a clear test. 37:107 - Then We ransomed him with a tremendous victim. 37:108 - And We left for him among the later folk (the salutation): 37:109 - Peace be unto Abraham! 37:110 - Thus do We reward the good. 37:111 - Lo! he is one of Our believing slaves. 37:112 - And we gave him tidings of the birth of Isaac, a prophet of the righteous. 37:113 - And We blessed him and Isaac.

Elias was of those sent (to warn), 37:124 - When he said unto his folk: Will ye not ward off (evil)? 37:125 - Will ye cry unto Baal and forsake the Best of creators, 37:126 - Allah, your Lord and Lord of your forefathers? 37:127 - But they denied him, so they surely will be haled forth (to the doom) 37:128 - Save single-minded slaves of Allah. 37:129 - And we left for him among the later folk (the salutation): 37:130 - Peace be unto Elias! 37:131 - Lo! thus do We reward the good. 37:132 - Lo! he is one of our believing slaves. 37:133 - And lo! Lot verily was of those sent (to warn). 37:134 - When We saved him and his household, every one, 37:135 - Save an old woman among those who stayed behind; 37:136 - Then We destroyed the others. 37:137 - And lo! ye verily pass by (the ruin of) them in the morning 37:138 - And at night-time; have ye then no sense? 37:139 - And lo! Jonah verily was of those sent (to warn) 37:140 - When he fled unto the laden ship, 37:141 - And then drew lots and was of those rejected; 37:142 - And the fish swallowed him while he was blameworthy; 37:143 - And had he not been one of those who glorify (Allah) 37:144 - He would have tarried in its belly till the day when they are raised; 37:145 - Then We cast him on a desert shore while he was sick; 37:146 - And We caused a tree of gourd to grow above him; 37:147 - And We sent him to a hundred thousand (folk) or more 37:148 - And they believed, therefor We gave them comfort for a while. 37:149 - Now ask them (O Muhammad): Hath thy Lord daughters whereas they have sons? 37:150 - Or created We the angels females while they were present? 37:151 - Lo! it is of their falsehood that they say: 37:152 - Allah hath begotten. Allah! verily they tell a lie. 37:153 - (And again of their falsehood): He hath preferred daughters to sons. 37:154 - What aileth you? How judge ye? 37:155 - Will ye not then reflect? 37:156 - Or have ye a clear warrant? 37:157 - Then produce your writ, if ye are truthful. 37:158 - And they imagine kinship between him and the jinn, whereas the jinn know well that they will be brought before (Him). 37:159 - Glorified be Allah from that which they attribute (unto Him), 37:160 - Save single-minded slaves of Allah. 37:161 - Lo! verily, ye and that which ye worship, 37:162 - Ye cannot excite (anyone) against Him. 37:163 - Save him who is to burn in hell. 37:164 - There is not one of us but hath his known position. 37:165 - Lo! we, even we are they who set the ranks, 37:166 - Lo! we, even we are they who hymn His praise 37:167 - And indeed they used to say: 37:168 - If we had but a reminder from the men of old 37:169 - We would be single-minded slaves of Allah. 37:170 - Yet (now that it is come) they disbelieve therein; but they will come to know. 37:171 - And verily Our word went forth of old unto Our bondmen sent (to warn) 37:172 - That they verily would be helped, 37:173 - And that Our host, they verily would be the victors. 37:174 - So withdraw from them (O Muhammad) awhile, 37:175 - And watch, for they will (soon) see. 37:176 - Would they hasten on Our doom? 37:177 - But when it cometh home to them, then it will be a hapless morn for those who have been warned. 37:178 - Withdraw from them awhile 37:179 - And watch, for they will (soon) see. 37:180 - Glorified be thy Lord, the Lord of Majesty, from that which they attribute (unto Him) 37:181 - And peace be unto those sent (to warn). 37:182 - And praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds!
