037 TheRangers

 In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

 1. I swear by those who draw themselves out in ranks

 2. Then those who drive away with reproof,

 3. Then those who recite, being mindful,

 4. Most surely your God is One:

 5. The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between 
 them, and Lord of the easts.

 6. Surely We have adorned the nearest heaven with an 
 adornment, the stars,

 7. And (there is) a safeguard against every rebellious 

 8. They cannot listen to the exalted assembly and they are 
 thrown at from every side,

 9. Being driven off, and for them is a perpetual 

 10. Except him who snatches off but once, then there follows 
 him a brightly shining flame.

 11. Then ask them whether they are stronger in creation or 
 those (others) whom We have created. Surely We created them 
 of firm clay.

 12. Nay! you wonder while they mock,

 13. And when they are reminded, they mind not,

 14. And when they see a sign they incite one another to 

 15. And they say: This is nothing but clear magic:

 16. What! when we are dead and have become dust and bones, 
 shall we then certainly be raised,

 17. Or our fathers of yore?

 18. Say: Aye! and you shall be abject.

 19. So it shall only be a single cry, when lo! they shall 

 20. And they shall say: O woe to us! this is the day of 

 21. This is the day of the judgment which you called a lie.

 22. Gather together those who were unjust and their 
 associates, and what they used to worship

 23. Besides Allah, then lead them to the way to hell.

 24. And stop them, for they shall be questioned:

 25. What is the matter with you that you do not help each 

 26. Nay! on that day they shall be submissive.

 27. And some of them shall advance towards others, 
 questioning each other.

 28. They shall say: Surely you used to come to us from the 
 right side.

 29. They shall say: Nay, you (yourselves) were not 

 30. And we had no authority over you, but you were an 
 inordinate people;

 31. So the sentence of our Lord has come to pass against us: 
 (now) we shall surely taste;

 32. So we led you astray, for we ourselves were erring.

 33. So they shall on that day be sharers in the chastisement 
 one with another.

 34. Surely thus do We deal with the guilty.

 35. Surely they used to behave proudly when it was said to 
 them: There is no god but Allah;

 36. And to say: What! shall we indeed give up our gods for 
 the sake of a mad poet?

 37. Nay: he has come with the truth and verified the 

 38. Most surely you will taste the painful punishment.

 39. And you shall not be rewarded except (for) what you did.

 40. Save the servants of Allah, the purified ones.

 41. For them is a known sustenance,

 42. Fruits, and they shall be highly honored,

 43. In gardens of pleasure,

 44. On thrones, facing each other.

 45. A bowl shall be made to go round them from water running 
 out of springs,

 46. White, delicious to those who drink.

 47. There shall be no trouble in it, nor shall they be 
 exhausted therewith.

 48. And with them shall be those who restrain the eyes, 
 having beautiful eyes;

 49. As if they were eggs carefully protected.

 50. Then shall some of them advance to others, questioning 
 each other.

 51. A speaker from among them shall say: Surely I had a 
 comrade of mine,

 52. Who said: What! are you indeed of those who accept (the 

 53. What! when we are dead and have become dust and bones, 
 shall we then be certainly brought to judgment?

 54. He shall say: Will you look on?

 SS. Then he looked down and saw him in the midst of hell.

 56. He shall say: By Allah! you had almost caused me to 

 57. And had it not been for the favor of my Lord, I would 
 certainly have been among those brought up.

 58. Is it then that we are not going to die,

 59. Except our previous death? And we shall not be 

 60. Most surely this is the mighty achievement.

 61. For the like of this then let the workers work.

 62. Is this better as an entertainment or the tree of 

 63. Surely We have made it to be a trial to the unjust.

 64. Surely it is a tree that-grows in the bottom of the 

 65. Its produce is as it were the heads of the serpents.

 66. Then most surely they shall eat of it and fill (their) 
 bellies with it.

 67. Then most surely they shall have after it to drink of a 
 mixture prepared in boiling water.

 68. Then most surely their return shall be to hell.

 69. Surely they found their fathers going astray,

 70. So in their footsteps they are being hastened on.

 71. And certainly most of the ancients went astray before 

 72. And certainly We sent among them warners.

 73. Then see how was the end of those warned,

 74. Except the servants of Allah, the purified ones.

 75. And Nuh did certainly call upon Us, and most excellent 
 answerer of prayer are We.

 76. And We delivered him and his followers from the mighty 

 77. And We made his offspring the survivors.

 78. And We perpetuated to him (praise) among the later 

 79. Peace and salutation to Nuh among the nations.

 80. Thus do We surely reward the doers of good.

 81. Surely he was of Our believing servants.

 82. Then We drowned the others

 83. And most surely Ibrahim followed his way.

 84. When he came to his Lord with a free heart,

 85. When he said to his father and his people: What is it 
 that you worship?

 86. A lie-- gods besides Allah-- do you desire?

 87. What is then your idea about the Lord of the worlds?

 88. Then he looked at the stars, looking up once,

 89. Then he said: Surely I am sick (of your worshipping 

 90. So they went away from him, turning back.

 91. Then he turned aside to their gods secretly and said: 
 What! do you not eat?

 92. What is the matter with you that you do not speak?

 93. Then he turned against them secretly, smiting them with 
 the right hand.

 94. So they (people) advanced towards him, hastening.

 95. Said he: What! do you worship what you hew out?

 96. And Allah has created you and what you make.

 97. They said: Build for him a furnace, then cast him into 
 the burning fire.

 98. And they desired a war against him, but We brought them 

 99. And he said: Surely I fly to my lord; He will guide me.

 100. My Lord! grant me of the doers of good deeds.

 101. So We gave him the good news of a boy, possessing 

 102. And when he attained to working with him, he said: O my 
 son! surely I have seen in a dream that I should sacrifice 
 you; consider then what you see. He said: O my father! do 
 what you are commanded; if Allah please, you will find me of 
 the patient ones.

 103. So when they both submitted and he threw him down upon 
 his forehead,

 104. And We called out to him saying: O Ibrahim!

 105. You have indeed shown the truth of the vision; surely 
 thus do We reward the doers of good:

 106. Most surely this is a manifest trial.

 107. And We ransomed him with a Feat sacrifice.

 108. And We perpetuated (praise) to him among the later 

 109. Peace be on Ibrahim.

 110. Thus do We reward the doers of good.

 111. Surely he was one of Our believing servants.

 112. And We gave him the good news of Ishaq, a prophet among 
 the good ones.

 113. And We showered Our blessings on him and on Ishaq; and 
 of their offspring are the doers of good, and (also) those 
 who are clearly unjust to their own souls.

 114. And certainly We conferred a favor on Musa and Haroun.

 115. And We delivered them both and their people from the 
 mighty distress.

 116. And We helped them, so they were the vanquishers.

 117. And We gave them both the Book that made (things) 

 118. And We guided them both on the right way.

 119. And We perpetuated (praise) to them among the later 

 120. Peace be on Musa and Haroun.

 121. Even thus do We reward the doers of good.

 122. Surely they were both of Our believing servants.

 123. And Ilyas was most surely of the apostles.

 124. When he said to his people: Do you not guard (against 

 125. What! do you call upon Ba'l and forsake the best of the 

 126. Allah, your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of yore?

 127. But they called him a liar, therefore they shall most 
 surely be brought up.

 128. But not the servants of Allah, the purified ones.

 129. And We perpetuated to him (praise) among the later 

 130. Peace be on Ilyas.

 131. Even thus do We reward the doers of good.

 132. Surely he was one of Our believing servants.

 133. And Lut was most surely of the apostles.

 134. When We delivered him and his followers, all-- 

 135. Except an old woman (who was) amongst those who 

 136. Then We destroyed the others.

 137. And most surely you pass by them in the morning,

 138. And at night; do you not then understand?

 139. And Yunus was most surely of the apostles.

 140. When he ran away to a ship completely laden,

 141. So he shared (with them), but was of those who are cast 

 142. So the fish swallowed him while he did that for which 
 he blamed himself

 143. But had it not been that he was of those who glorify 

 144. He would certainly have tarried in its belly to the day 
 when they are raised.

 145. Then We cast him on to the vacant surface of the earth 
 while he was sick.

 146. And We caused to grow up for him a gourdplant.

 147. And We sent him to a hundred thousand, rather they 

 148. And they believed, so We gave them provision till a 

 149. Then ask them whether your Lord has daughters and they 
 have sons.

 150. Or did We create the angels females while they were 

 151. Now surely it is of their own lie that they say:

 152. Allah has begotten; and most surely they are liars.

 153. Has He chosen daughters in preference to sons?

 154. What is the matter with you, how is it that you judge?

 155. Will you not then mind?

 156. Or have you a clear authority?

 157. Then bring your book, if you are truthful.

 158. And they assert a relationship between Him and the 
 jinn; and certainly the jinn do know that they shall surely 
 be brought up;

 159. Glory be to Allah (for freedom) from what they 

 160. But not so the servants of Allah, the purified ones.

 161. So surely you and what you worship,

 162. Not against Him can you cause (any) to fall into trial,

 163. Save him who will go to hell.

 164. And there is none of us but has an assigned place,

 165. And most surely we are they who draw themselves out in 

 166. And we are most surely they who declare the glory (of 

 167. And surely they used to say:

 168. Had we a reminder from those of yore,

 169. We would certainly have been the servants of Allah-- the 
 purified ones.

 170. But (now) they disbelieve in it, so they will come to 

 171. And certainly Our word has already gone forth in 
 respect of Our servants, the apostles:

 172. Most surely they shall be the assisted ones

 173. And most surely Our host alone shall be the victorious 

 174. Therefore turn away from them till a time,

 175. And (then) see them, so they too shall see.

 176. What! would they then hasten on Our chastisement?

 177. But when it shall descend in their court, evil shall 
 then be the morning of the warned ones.

 178. And turn away from them till a time

 179. And (then) see, for they too shall see.

 180. Glory be to your Lord, the Lord of Honor, above what 
 they describe.

 181. And peace be on the apostles.

 182. And all praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.
