As-Saffaat

1

وَالصَّافَّاتِ صَفًّا

By those who set the ranks in battle order

2

فَالزَّاجِرَاتِ زَجْرًا

And those who drive away (the wicked) with reproof

3

فَالتَّالِيَاتِ ذِكْرًا

And those who read (the Word) for a reminder,

4

إِنَّ إِلَٰهَكُمْ لَوَاحِدٌ

Lo! thy Lord is surely One;

5

رَّبُّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا وَرَبُّ الْمَشَارِقِ

Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all that is between them, and Lord of the sun's risings.

6

إِنَّا زَيَّنَّا السَّمَاءَ الدُّنْيَا بِزِينَةٍ الْكَوَاكِبِ

Lo! We have adorned the lowest heaven with an ornament, the planets;

7

وَحِفْظًا مِّن كُلِّ شَيْطَانٍ مَّارِدٍ

With security from every froward devil.

8

لَّا يَسَّمَّعُونَ إِلَى الْمَلَإِ الْأَعْلَىٰ وَيُقْذَفُونَ مِن كُلِّ جَانِبٍ

They cannot listen to the Highest Chiefs for they are pelted from every side,

9

دُحُورًا ۖ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ وَاصِبٌ

Outcast, and theirs is a perpetual torment;

10

إِلَّا مَنْ خَطِفَ الْخَطْفَةَ فَأَتْبَعَهُ شِهَابٌ ثَاقِبٌ

Save him who snatcheth a fragment, and there pursueth him a piercing flame.
