Section 1

Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

[Saffat 37:1] By oath of those who establish proper ranks.

[Saffat 37:2] And by oath of those who herd with a stern warning.

[Saffat 37:3] And by oath of the groups that read the Qur’an.

[Saffat 37:4] Indeed your God is surely only One.

[Saffat 37:5] Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them - and the Lord of the sun’s rising points.

[Saffat 37:6] We have indeed adorned the lowest heaven with stars as ornaments.

[Saffat 37:7] And to protect it from every rebellious devil.

[Saffat 37:8] They cannot listen to the speech of those on higher elevations and they are targeted from every side.

[Saffat 37:9] To make them flee, and for them is a never-ending punishment.

[Saffat 37:10] Except one who sometimes steals a part, so a blazing flame goes after him.

[Saffat 37:11] Therefore ask them (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him), “Are they a stronger creation, or are other things of our creation?” We have indeed created them from sticky clay.

[Saffat 37:12] Rather you are surprised, whereas they keep mocking.

[Saffat 37:13] And they do not understand, when explained to.

[Saffat 37:14] And whenever they see a sign, they mock at it.

[Saffat 37:15] And they say, “This is nothing but clear magic.”

[Saffat 37:16] “When we are dead and have turned into dust and bones, will we certainly be raised again?”

[Saffat 37:17] “And also our forefathers?”

[Saffat 37:18] Proclaim, “Yes, and with disgrace.”

[Saffat 37:19] So that is just a single jolt, thereupon they will begin staring.

[Saffat 37:20] And will say, “O our misfortune!” It will be said to them, “This is the Day of Justice.”

[Saffat 37:21] “This is the Day of Judgement, which you used to deny!”

Section 2

[Saffat 37:22] “Gather all the unjust persons and their spouses, and all that they used to worship!” -

[Saffat 37:23] “Instead of Allah - and herd them to the path leading to hell.”

[Saffat 37:24] “And stop them - they are to be questioned.”
