 Surah Name Meaning: Those Who Set the Ranks, Drawn Up In Ranks, The Rangers
 Revealed at Mecca, Ayat 182

In the name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful

37:83

 

Verily among those who followed his Way was Abraham.

37:84

 

Behold! he approached his Lord with a sound heart.

37:85

 

Behold! he said to his father and to his people, "What is that which ye worship?

37:86

 

"Is it a falsehood- gods other than Allah. that ye desire?

37:87

 

"Then what is your idea about the Lord of the worlds?"

37:88

 

Then did he cast a glance at the Stars.

37:89

 

And he said, "I am indeed sick (at heart)!"

37:90

 

So they turned away from him, and departed.

37:91

 

Then did he turn to their gods and said, "will ye not eat (of the offerings before you)?...

37:92

 

"What is the matter with you that ye speak not (intelligently)?"

37:93

 

Then did he turn upon them, striking (them) with the right hand.

37:94

 

Then came (the worshippers) with hurried steps, and faced (him).

37:95

 

He said: "Worship ye that which ye have (yourselves) carved?

37:96

 

"But Allah has created you and your handwork!"

37:97

 

They said, "Build him a furnace, and throw him into the blazing fire!"

37:98

 

(This failing), they then sought a stratagem against him, but We made them the ones most humiliated!

37:99

 

He said: "I will go to my Lord! He will surely guide me!

37:100

 

"O my Lord! Grant me a righteous (son)!"

37:101

 

So We gave him the good news of a boy ready to suffer and forbear.

37:102

 

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!"

37:103

 

So when they had both submitted their wills (to Allah., and he had laid him prostrate on his forehead (for sacrifice),

37:104

 

We called out to him "O Abraham!

37:105

 

"Thou hast already fulfilled the vision!" - thus indeed do We reward those who do right.

37:106

 

For this was obviously a trial-

37:1

 

By those who range themselves in ranks,

37:2

 

And so are strong in repelling (evil),

37:3

 

And thus proclaim the Message (of Allah.!

37:4

 

Verily, verily, your Allah is one!-

37:5

 

Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all between them, and Lord of every point at the rising of the sun!

37:6

 

We have indeed decked the lower heaven with beauty (in) the stars,-

37:7

 

(For beauty) and for guard against all obstinate rebellious evil spirits,

37:8

 

(So) they should not strain their ears in the direction of the Exalted Assembly but be cast away from every side,

37:9

 

Repulsed, for they are under a perpetual penalty,

37:10

 

Except such as snatch away something by stealth, and they are pursued by a flaming fire, of piercing brightness.

37:11

 

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!

37:12

 

Truly dost thou marvel, while they ridicule,

37:13

 

And, when they are admonished, pay no heed,-

37:14

 

And, when they see a Sign, turn it to mockery,

37:15

 

And say, "This is nothing but evident sorcery!

37:16

 

"What! when we die, and become dust and bones, shall we (then) be raised up (again)

37:17

 

"And also our fathers of old?"

37:18

 

Say thou: "Yea, and ye shall then be humiliated (on account of your evil)."

37:19

 

Then it will be a single (compelling) cry; and behold, they will begin to see!

37:20

 

They will say, "Ah! Woe to us! This is the Day of Judgment!"

37:21

 

(A voice will say,) "This is the Day of Sorting Out, whose truth ye (once) denied!"

37:22

 

"Bring ye up", it shall be said, "The wrong-doers and their wives, and the things they worshipped-

37:23

 

"Besides Allah, and lead them to the Way to the (Fierce) Fire!

37:24

 

"But stop them, for they must be asked:

"'What is the matter with you that ye help not each other?'"

37:26
