Chapter Scripts

Surah As-Saffat 37:161-170

37:161 For, verily, neither you [blasphemers] nor the objects of your worship. 

37:162 Can cause anyone to fall prey to your temptation. 

37:163 Unless it be such as rushes towards the blazing fire [of his own accord]!

37:164 [All forces of nature praise God and say] “Among us, too, there is none but has a place assigned to it [by Him].

37:165 And, Verily, we too are ranged [before Him in worship].

37:166 And, Verily, we too extol His limitless glory!”

37:167 And, Indeed, they [who deny the truth] have always been wont to say. 

37:168 If only we had a tradition [to this effect] from our forebears.

37:169 We would certainly be true servants of God.”

37:170 And yet, [now that this divine writ has been placed before them,] they refuse to acknowledge it as true! In time, however, they will come to know [what it was that they had rejected]. 


The divine scriptures are God’s beacons to the world. Surely God offered His trust to the heavens and the earth, and the hills, but they shrank from bearing it and were afraid of it. And man undertook it.
