As-Saffat ( 182 Verses )

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

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!"
21 . (A voice will say,) "This is the Day of Sorting Out, whose truth ye (once) denied!"
22 . "Bring ye up", it shall be said, "The wrong-doers and their wives, and the things they worshipped-
23 . "Besides Allah, and lead them to the Way to the (Fierce) Fire!
24 . "But stop them, for they must be asked:
25 . "'What is the matter with you that ye help not each other?'"
26 . Nay, but that day they shall submit (to Judgment);
27 . And they will turn to one another, and question one another.
28 . They will say: "It was ye who used to come to us from the right hand (of power and authority)!"
29 . They will reply: "Nay, ye yourselves had no Faith!
30 . "Nor had we any authority over you. Nay, it was ye who were a people in obstinate rebellion!
31 . "So now has been proved true, against us, the word of our Lord that we shall indeed (have to) taste (the punishment of our sins).
32 . "We led you astray: for truly we were ourselves astray."
33 . Truly, that Day, they will (all) share in the Penalty.
34 . Verily that is how We shall deal with Sinners.
35 . For they, when they were told that there is no god except Allah, would puff themselves up with Pride,
36 . And say: "What! shall we give up our gods for the sake of a Poet possessed?"
37 . Nay! he has come with the (very) Truth, and he confirms (the Message of) the apostles (before him).
38 . Ye shall indeed taste of the Grievous Penalty;-
39 . But it will be no more than the retribution of (the Evil) that ye have wrought;-
40 . But the sincere (and devoted) Servants of Allah,-
41 . For them is a Sustenance determined,
42 . Fruits (Delights); and they (shall enjoy) honour and dignity,
43 . In Gardens of Felicity,
44 . Facing each other on Thrones (of Dignity):
45 . Round will be passed to them a Cup from a clear-flowing fountain,
46 . Crystal-white, of a taste delicious to those who drink (thereof),
47 . Free from headiness; nor will they suffer intoxication therefrom.
48 . And besides them will be chaste women, restraining their glances, with big eyes (of wonder and beauty).
49 . As if they were (delicate) eggs closely guarded.
50 . Then they will turn to one another and question one another.
51 . One of them will start the talk and say: "I had an intimate companion (on the earth),
52 . "Who used to say, 'what! art thou amongst those who bear witness to the Truth (of the Message)?
53 . "'When we die and become dust and bones, shall we indeed receive rewards and punishments?'"
54 . (A voice) said: "Would ye like to look down?"
55 . He looked down and saw him in the midst of the Fire.
56 . He said: "By Allah. thou wast little short of bringing me to perdition!
57 . "Had it not been for the Grace of my Lord, I should certainly have been among those brought (there)!
58 . "Is it (the case) that we shall not die,
59 . "Except our first death, and that we shall not be punished?"
60 . Verily this is the supreme achievement!
61 . For the like of this let all strive, who wish to strive.
62 . Is that the better entertainment or the Tree of Zaqqum?
63 . For We have truly made it (as) a trial for the wrong-doers.
64 . For it is a tree that springs out of the bottom of Hell-Fire:
65 . The shoots of its fruit-stalks are like the heads of devils:
66 . Truly they will eat thereof and fill their bellies therewith.
67 . Then on top of that they will be given a mixture made of boiling water.
68 . Then shall their return be to the (Blazing) Fire.
69 . Truly they found their fathers on the wrong Path;
70 . So they (too) were rushed down on their footsteps!
71 . And truly before them, many of the ancients went astray;-
72 . But We sent aforetime, among them, (apostles) to admonish them;-
73 . Then see what was the end of those who were admonished (but heeded not),-
74 . Except the sincere (and devoted) Servants of Allah.
75 . (In the days of old), Noah cried to Us, and We are the best to hear prayer.
76 . And We delivered him and his people from the Great Calamity,
77 . And made his progeny to endure (on this earth);
78 . And We left (this blessing) for him among generations to come in later times:
79 . "Peace and salutation to Noah among the nations!"
80 . Thus indeed do we reward those who do right.
81 . For he was one of our believing Servants.
82 . Then the rest we overwhelmed in the Flood.
83 . Verily among those who followed his Way was Abraham.
84 . Behold! he approached his Lord with a sound heart.
85 . Behold! he said to his father and to his people, "What is that which ye worship?
86 . "Is it a falsehood- gods other than Allah. that ye desire?
87 . "Then what is your idea about the Lord of the worlds?"
88 . Then did he cast a glance at the Stars.
89 . And he said, "I am indeed sick (at heart)!"
90 . So they turned away from him, and departed.
91 . Then did he turn to their gods and said, "will ye not eat (of the offerings before you)?...
92 . "What is the matter with you that ye speak not (intelligently)?"
93 . Then did he turn upon them, striking (them) with the right hand.
94 . Then came (the worshippers) with hurried steps, and faced (him).
95 . He said: "Worship ye that which ye have (yourselves) carved?
96 . "But Allah has created you and your handwork!"
97 . They said, "Build him a furnace, and throw him into the blazing fire!"
98 . (This failing), they then sought a stratagem against him, but We made them the ones most humiliated!
99 . He said: "I will go to my Lord! He will surely guide me!
100 . "O my Lord! Grant me a righteous (son)!"
101 . So We gave him the good news of a boy ready to suffer and forbear.
102 . Then, when (the son) reached (the age of) (serious) work with him, he said: "O my son! I see in vision that I offer thee in sacrifice: Now see what is thy view!" (The son) said: "O my father! Do as thou art commanded: thou will find me, if Allah so wills one practising Patience and Constancy!"
103 . So when they had both submitted their wills (to Allah., and he had laid him prostrate on his forehead (for sacrifice),
104 . We called out to him "O Abraham!
105 . "Thou hast already fulfilled the vision!" - thus indeed do We reward those who do right.
106 . For this was obviously a trial-
107 . And We ransomed him with a momentous sacrifice:
108 . And We left (this blessing) for him among generations (to come) in later times:
109 . "Peace and salutation to Abraham!"
110 . Thus indeed do We reward those who do right.
111 . For he was one of our believing Servants.
112 . And We gave him the good news of Isaac - a prophet,- one of the Righteous.
113 . We blessed him and Isaac: but of their progeny are (some) that do right, and (some) that obviously do wrong, to their own souls.
114 . Again (of old) We bestowed Our favour on Moses and Aaron,
115 . And We delivered them and their people from (their) Great Calamity;
116 . And We helped them, so they overcame (their troubles);
117 . And We gave them the Book which helps to make things clear;
118 . And We guided them to the Straight Way.
119 . And We left (this blessing) for them among generations (to come) in later times:
120 . "Peace and salutation to Moses and Aaron!"
121 . Thus indeed do We reward those who do right.
122 . For they were two of our believing Servants.
123 . So also was Elias among those sent (by Us).
124 . Behold, he said to his people, "Will ye not fear ((Allah))?
125 . "Will ye call upon Baal and forsake the Best of Creators,-
126 . "(Allah), your Lord and Cherisher and the Lord and Cherisher of your fathers of old?"
127 . But they rejected him, and they will certainly be called up (for punishment),-
128 . Except the sincere and devoted Servants of Allah (among them).
129 . And We left (this blessing) for him among generations (to come) in later times:
130 . "Peace and salutation to such as Elias!"
131 . Thus indeed do We reward those who do right.
132 . For he was one of our believing Servants.
133 . So also was Lut among those sent (by Us).
134 . Behold, We delivered him and his adherents, all
135 . Except an old woman who was among those who lagged behind:
136 . Then We destroyed the rest.
137 . Verily, ye pass by their (sites), by day-
138 . And by night: will ye not understand?
139 . So also was Jonah among those sent (by Us).
140 . When he ran away (like a slave from captivity) to the ship (fully) laden,
141 . He (agreed to) cast lots, and he was condemned:
142 . Then the big Fish did swallow him, and he had done acts worthy of blame.
143 . Had it not been that he (repented and) glorified Allah,
144 . He would certainly have remained inside the Fish till the Day of Resurrection.
145 . But We cast him forth on the naked shore in a state of sickness,
146 . And We caused to grow, over him, a spreading plant of the gourd kind.
147 . And We sent him (on a mission) to a hundred thousand (men) or more.
148 . And they believed; so We permitted them to enjoy (their life) for a while.
149 . Now ask them their opinion: Is it that thy Lord has (only) daughters, and they have sons?-
150 . Or that We created the angels female, and they are witnesses (thereto)?
151 . Is it not that they say, from their own invention,
152 . "(Allah) has begotten children"? but they are liars!
153 . Did He (then) choose daughters rather than sons?
154 . What is the matter with you? How judge ye?
155 . Will ye not then receive admonition?
156 . Or have ye an authority manifest?
157 . Then bring ye your Book (of authority) if ye be truthful!
158 . And they have invented a blood-relationship between Him and the Jinns: but the Jinns know (quite well) that they have indeed to appear (before his Judgment- Seat)!
159 . Glory to Allah. (He is free) from the things they ascribe (to Him)!
160 . Not (so do) the Servants of Allah, sincere and devoted.
161 . For, verily, neither ye nor those ye worship-
162 . Can lead (any) into temptation concerning Allah,
163 . Except such as are (themselves) going to the blazing Fire!
164 . (Those ranged in ranks say): "Not one of us but has a place appointed;
165 . "And we are verily ranged in ranks (for service);
166 . "And we are verily those who declare ((Allah)'s) glory!"
167 . And there were those who said,
168 . "If only we had had before us a Message from those of old,
169 . "We should certainly have been Servants of Allah, sincere (and devoted)!"
170 . But (now that the Qur'an has come), they reject it: But soon will they know!
171 . Already has Our Word been passed before (this) to our Servants sent (by Us),
172 . That they would certainly be assisted,
173 . And that Our forces,- they surely must conquer.
174 . So turn thou away from them for a little while,
175 . And watch them (how they fare), and they soon shall see (how thou farest)!
176 . Do they wish (indeed) to hurry on our Punishment?
177 . But when it descends into the open space before them, evil will be the morning for those who were warned (and heeded not)!
178 . So turn thou away from them for a little while,
179 . And watch (how they fare) and they soon shall see (how thou farest)!
180 . Glory to thy Lord, the Lord of Honour and Power! (He is free) from what they ascribe (to Him)!
181 . And Peace on the apostles!
182 . And Praise to Allah, the Lord and Cherisher of the Worlds.
