Surah 37. Those Who Set The Ranks, Drawn Up In Ranks
1. By those who range themselves in ranks,
2. And so are strong in repelling (evil),
3. And thus proclaim the Message (of Allah.!
4. Verily, verily, your Allah is one!-
5. Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all between them, and Lord of every point at the rising of the sun!
6. We have indeed decked the lower heaven with beauty (in) the stars,-
7. (For beauty) and for guard against all obstinate rebellious evil spirits,
8. (So) they should not strain their ears in the direction of the Exalted Assembly but be cast away from every side,
9. Repulsed, for they are under a perpetual penalty,
10. Except such as snatch away something by stealth, and they are pursued by a flaming fire, of piercing brightness.
11. Just ask their opinion: are they the more difficult to create, or the (other) beings We have created? Them have We created out of a sticky clay!
12. Truly dost thou marvel, while they ridicule,
13. And, when they are admonished, pay no heed,-
14. And, when they see a Sign, turn it to mockery,
15. And say, "This is nothing but evident sorcery!
16. "What! when we die, and become dust and bones, shall we (then) be raised up (again)
17. "And also our fathers of old?"
18. Say thou: "Yea, and ye shall then be humiliated (on account of your evil)."
19. Then it will be a single (compelling) cry; and behold, they will begin to see!
20. They will say, "Ah! Woe to us! This is the Day of Judgment!"
