Your God is indeed One.

Lord of the heavens and the earth, and everything between them; and Lord of the Easts.

We have adorned the lower heaven with the beauty of the planets.

Qur'an 37:6 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:7[edit]

And guarded it against every defiant devil.

Qur'an 37:7 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:8[edit]

They cannot eavesdrop on the Supernal Elite, for they get bombarded from every side.

Qur'an 37:8 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:9[edit]

Repelled—they will have a lingering torment.

Qur'an 37:9 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:10[edit]

Except for him who snatches a fragment—he gets pursued by a piercing projectile.

Qur'an 37:10 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:11[edit]

Inquire of them, “Are they more difficult to create, or the others We created?” We created them from sticky clay.

Qur'an 37:11 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:12[edit]

But you wonder, and they ridicule.

Qur'an 37:12 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:13[edit]

And when reminded, they pay no attention.

Qur'an 37:13 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:14[edit]

And when they see a sign, they ridicule.

Qur'an 37:14 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:15[edit]

And they say, “This is nothing but plain magic.

Qur'an 37:15 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:16[edit]

When we have died and become dust and bones, shall we be resurrected?

Qur'an 37:16 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:17[edit]

And our ancestors of old?”

Qur'an 37:17 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:18[edit]

Say, “Yes indeed, and you will be totally subdued.”

Qur'an 37:18 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:19[edit]

It will be a single nudge, and they will be staring.

Qur'an 37:19 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:20[edit]

They will say, “Woe to us. This is the Day of Judgment.”

Qur'an 37:20 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:21[edit]

“This is the Day of Separation which you used to deny.

Qur'an 37:21 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:22[edit]

Gather those who did wrong, and their mates, and what they used to worship.

Qur'an 37:22 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:23[edit]

Besides God, and lead them to the way to Hell.

Qur'an 37:23 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:24[edit]

And stop them. They are to be questioned.”

Qur'an 37:24 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:25[edit]

What is the matter with you? Why do you not help one another?

Qur'an 37:25 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:26[edit]

In fact, on that Day, they will be submissive.

Qur'an 37:26 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:27[edit]

They will come to one another, questioning one another.

Qur'an 37:27 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:28[edit]

They will say, “You used to come at us from the right.”

Qur'an 37:28 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:29[edit]

They will say, “You yourselves were not believers.

Qur'an 37:29 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:30[edit]

We had no authority over you. You yourselves were rebellious people.

Qur'an 37:30 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:31[edit]

The Word of our Lord has been realized against us. We are tasting it.

Qur'an 37:31 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:32[edit]

We seduced you. We were seducers.”

Qur'an 37:32 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:33[edit]

On that Day, they will share in the punishment.

Qur'an 37:33 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:34[edit]

Thus We deal with the sinners.

Qur'an 37:34 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:35[edit]

When it was said to them, “There is no god except God,” they grew arrogant.

Qur'an 37:35 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:36[edit]

And said, “Are we to abandon our gods for a mad poet?”

Qur'an 37:36 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:37[edit]

In fact, he came with the truth, and he confirmed the messengers.

Qur'an 37:37 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:38[edit]

Most assuredly, you will taste the painful punishment.

Qur'an 37:38 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:39[edit]

And you will be repaid only for what you used to do.

Qur'an 37:39 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:40[edit]

Except for God’s sincere servants.

Qur'an 37:40 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:41[edit]

For them is a known provision.

Qur'an 37:41 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:42[edit]

Fruits; and they will be honored.

Qur'an 37:42 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:43[edit]

In the Gardens of Bliss.

Qur'an 37:43 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:44[edit]

On furnishings, facing one another.

Qur'an 37:44 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:45[edit]

They will be offered a cup of pure drink.

Qur'an 37:45 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:46[edit]

White; a delight to those who drink.

Qur'an 37:46 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:47[edit]

Never polluted, and never intoxicating.

Qur'an 37:47 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:48[edit]

With them will be bashful women with lovely eyes.

Qur'an 37:48 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:49[edit]

As if they were closely guarded pearls.

Qur'an 37:49 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:50[edit]

Then they will approach one another, questioning.

Qur'an 37:50 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:51[edit]

One of them will say, “I used to have a friend.

Qur'an 37:51 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:52[edit]

Who used to say, “Are you of those who believe?

Qur'an 37:52 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:53[edit]

That after we die and become dust and bones, we will be called to account?”

Qur'an 37:53 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:54[edit]

He will say, “Will you have a look?”

Qur'an 37:54 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:55[edit]

He will look, and will see him in the pit of Hell.

Qur'an 37:55 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:56[edit]

He will say, “By God, you almost ruined me.

Qur'an 37:56 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:57[edit]

Were it not for the grace of my Lord, I would have been among the arraigned.”

Qur'an 37:57 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:58[edit]

“We will not die.

Qur'an 37:58 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:59[edit]

Except for our first death, and we will not be punished.”

Qur'an 37:59 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:60[edit]

This is the supreme triumph.

Qur'an 37:60 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:61[edit]

For the like of this let the workers work.

Qur'an 37:61 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:62[edit]

Is this a better hospitality, or the Tree of Bitterness?

Qur'an 37:62 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:63[edit]

We made it an ordeal for the unjust.

Qur'an 37:63 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:64[edit]

It is a tree that grows from the bottom of Hell.

Qur'an 37:64 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:65[edit]

Its fruits are like the devils’ heads.

Qur'an 37:65 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:66[edit]

They will eat from it, and fill their bellies with it.

Qur'an 37:66 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:67[edit]

Then, on top of it, they will have a brew of boiling liquid.

Qur'an 37:67 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:68[edit]

Then their return will be to the Blaze.

Qur'an 37:68 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:69[edit]

They had found their parents astray.

Qur'an 37:69 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:70[edit]

And rushed along in their footsteps.

Qur'an 37:70 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:71[edit]

And most of the ancients before them went astray.

Qur'an 37:71 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:72[edit]

Even though We sent messengers to warn them.

Qur'an 37:72 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:73[edit]

So observe the end of those who were warned.

Qur'an 37:73 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:74[edit]

Except for the sincere servants of God.

Qur'an 37:74 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:75[edit]

And Noah called out to Us, and We are the Best of responders.

Qur'an 37:75 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:76[edit]

And We saved him and his family from the great calamity.

Qur'an 37:76 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:77[edit]

And We made his descendants the survivors.

Qur'an 37:77 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:78[edit]

And We left mention of him among those who succeeded.

Qur'an 37:78 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:79[edit]

Peace be upon Noah among all people.

Qur'an 37:79 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:80[edit]

We thus reward the righteous.

Qur'an 37:80 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:81[edit]

He was one of Our believing servants.

Qur'an 37:81 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:82[edit]

Then We drowned the others.

Qur'an 37:82 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:83[edit]

Of his kind was Abraham.

Qur'an 37:83 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:84[edit]

When he came to his Lord with a sound heart.

Qur'an 37:84 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:85[edit]

When he came to his Lord with a sound heart.

Qur'an 37:85 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:86[edit]

He said to his father and his people, “What are you worshiping?

Qur'an 37:86 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:87[edit]

Is it falsified gods, instead of God, that you want?

Qur'an 37:87 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:88[edit]

So what is your opinion about the Lord of the Worlds?”

Qur'an 37:88 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:89[edit]

Then he took a glance at the stars.

Qur'an 37:89 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:90[edit]

And said, “I am sick.”

Qur'an 37:90 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:91[edit]

But they turned their backs on him, and went away.

Qur'an 37:91 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:92[edit]

Then he turned to their gods, and said, “will you not eat?

Qur'an 37:92 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:93[edit]

What is it with you, that you do not speak?”

Qur'an 37:93 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:94[edit]

Then he turned on them, striking with his right hand.

Qur'an 37:94 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:95[edit]

And they came running towards him.

Qur'an 37:95 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:96[edit]

He said, “Do you worship what you carve?

Qur'an 37:96 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:97[edit]

When God created you, and what you manufacture?”

Qur'an 37:97 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:98[edit]

They said, “Build a pyre for him, and throw him into the furnace.”

Qur'an 37:98 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:99[edit]

They wished him ill, but We made them the losers.

Qur'an 37:99 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:100[edit]

He said, “I am going towards my Lord, and He will guide me.”

Qur'an 37:100 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:101[edit]

“My Lord, give me one of the righteous.”

Qur'an 37:101 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:102[edit]

So We gave him good news of a clement boy.

Qur'an 37:102 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:103[edit]

Then, when he was old enough to accompany him, he said, “O My son, I see in a dream that I am sacrificing you; see what you think.” He said, “O my Father, do as you are commanded; you will find me, God willing, one of the steadfast.”

Qur'an 37:103 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:104[edit]

Then, when they had submitted, and he put his forehead down.

Qur'an 37:104 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:105[edit]

We called out to him, “O Abraham!

Qur'an 37:105 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:106[edit]

You have fulfilled the vision.” Thus We reward the doers of good.

Qur'an 37:106 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:107[edit]

This was certainly an evident test.

Qur'an 37:107 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:108[edit]

And We redeemed him with a great sacrifice.

Qur'an 37:108 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:109[edit]

And We left with him for later generations.

Qur'an 37:109 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:110[edit]

Peace be upon Abraham.

Qur'an 37:110 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:111[edit]

Thus We reward the doers of good.

Qur'an 37:111 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:112[edit]

He was one of Our believing servants.

Qur'an 37:112 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:113[edit]

And We gave him good news of Isaac, a prophet, one of the righteous.

Qur'an 37:113 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:114[edit]

And We blessed him, and Isaac. But among their descendants are some who are righteous, and some who are clearly unjust to themselves.

Qur'an 37:114 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:115[edit]

And We blessed Moses and Aaron.

Qur'an 37:115 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:116[edit]

And We delivered them and their people from the terrible disaster.

Qur'an 37:116 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:117[edit]

And We supported them, and so they were the victors.

Qur'an 37:117 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:118[edit]

And We gave them the Clarifying Scripture.

Qur'an 37:118 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:119[edit]

And We guided them upon the straight path.

Qur'an 37:119 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:120[edit]

And We left with them for later generations.

Qur'an 37:120 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:121[edit]

Peace be upon Moses and Aaron.

Qur'an 37:121 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:122[edit]

Thus We reward the righteous.

Qur'an 37:122 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:123[edit]

They were of Our believing servants.

Qur'an 37:123 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:124[edit]

Also Elijah was one of the messengers.

Qur'an 37:124 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:125[edit]

He said to his people, “Do you not fear?

Qur'an 37:125 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:126[edit]

Do you call on Baal, and forsake the Best of creators?

Qur'an 37:126 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:127[edit]

God is your Lord, and the Lord of your ancestors.”

Qur'an 37:127 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:128[edit]

But they called him a liar, and thus they will be brought forward.

Qur'an 37:128 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:129[edit]

Except for God’s sincere servants.

Qur'an 37:129 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:130[edit]

And We left with him for later generations.

Qur'an 37:130 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:131[edit]

Peace be upon the House of Elijah.

Qur'an 37:131 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:132[edit]

Thus We reward the virtuous.

Qur'an 37:132 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:133[edit]

He was one of Our believing servants.

Qur'an 37:133 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:134[edit]

And Lot was one of the messengers.

Qur'an 37:134 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:135[edit]

We saved him and his family, all of them.

Qur'an 37:135 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:136[edit]

Except for an old woman who lagged behind.

Qur'an 37:136 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:137[edit]

Then We annihilated the others.

Qur'an 37:137 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:138[edit]

You pass by them in the morning.

Qur'an 37:138 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:139[edit]

And at night. Do you not understand?

Qur'an 37:139 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:140[edit]

And Jonah was one of the messengers.

Qur'an 37:140 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:141[edit]

When he fled to the laden boat.

Qur'an 37:141 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:142[edit]

He gambled and lost.

Qur'an 37:142 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:143[edit]

Then the fish swallowed him, and he was to blame.

Qur'an 37:143 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:144[edit]

Had he not been one of those who praised.

Qur'an 37:144 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:145[edit]

He would have stayed in its belly until the Day they are raised.

Qur'an 37:145 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:146[edit]

Then We threw him into the wilderness, and he was sick.

Qur'an 37:146 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:147[edit]

And We made a gourd tree grow over him.

Qur'an 37:147 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:148[edit]

Then We sent him to a hundred thousand, or more.

Qur'an 37:148 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:149[edit]

And they believed, so We gave them enjoyment for a while.

Qur'an 37:149 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:150[edit]

Ask them, “Are the daughters for your Lord, while for them the sons?”

Qur'an 37:150 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:151[edit]

Or did We create the angels females, as they witnessed?”

Qur'an 37:151 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:152[edit]

No indeed! It is one of their lies when they say.

Qur'an 37:152 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:153[edit]

“God has begotten.” They are indeed lying.

Qur'an 37:153 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:154[edit]

So He preferred girls over boys?

Qur'an 37:154 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:155[edit]

What is the matter with you? How do you judge?

Qur'an 37:155 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:156[edit]

Will you not reflect?

Qur'an 37:156 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:157[edit]

Or do you have some clear proof?

Qur'an 37:157 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:158[edit]

Then bring your book, if you are telling the truth.

Qur'an 37:158 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:159[edit]

And they invented a relationship between Him and the jinn. But the jinn know that they will be arraigned.

Qur'an 37:159 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:160[edit]

God be glorified, far above what they allege.

Qur'an 37:160 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:161[edit]

Except for God’s sincere servants.

Qur'an 37:161 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:162[edit]

Surely, you and what you serve.

Qur'an 37:162 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:163[edit]

Cannot seduce away from Him.

Qur'an 37:163 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:164[edit]

Except for he who will be roasting in Hell.

Qur'an 37:164 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:165[edit]

“There is not one of us but has an assigned position.

Qur'an 37:165 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:166[edit]

And we are the arrangers.

Qur'an 37:166 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:167[edit]

And we are the glorifiers.”

Qur'an 37:167 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:168[edit]

Even though they used to say.

Qur'an 37:168 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:169[edit]

“Had we received advice from the ancients.

Qur'an 37:169 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:170[edit]

We would have been God's faithful servants.”

Qur'an 37:170 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:171[edit]

But they rejected it, so they will find out.

Qur'an 37:171 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:172[edit]

Our Word has already gone out to our servant messengers.

Qur'an 37:172 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:173[edit]

It is they who will be supported.

Qur'an 37:173 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:174[edit]

And Our troops will be the victors.

Qur'an 37:174 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:175[edit]

So disregard them for a while.

Qur'an 37:175 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:176[edit]

And watch them—they will soon see.

Qur'an 37:176 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:177[edit]

Are they seeking to hasten Our punishment?

Qur'an 37:177 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:178[edit]

When it descends into their yard, miserable will be the morning of those forewarned.

Qur'an 37:178 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:179[edit]

So avoid them for a while.

Qur'an 37:179 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:180[edit]

And watch—they will soon see.

Qur'an 37:180 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:181[edit]

Exalted be your Lord, the Lord of Glory, beyond their allegations.

Qur'an 37:181 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:182[edit]

And peace be upon the messengers.

Qur'an 37:182 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 37:183[edit]

And praise be to God, the Lord of the Worlds.

Qur'an 37:183 Notes[edit]
