Chapter Scripts

Surah As-Saffat 37:91-100

37:91 Thereupon he approached their gods stealthily and said, “What! You do not eat [of the offerings placed before you]?

37:92 What is amiss with you that you do not speak?”

37:93 And then he fell upon them, smiting them with his right hand.

37:94 [But] then the others came towards him hurriedly [and accused him of his deed].

37:95 He answered “Do you worship something that you [yourselves] have carved. 

37:96 The while it is God who has created you and all your handiwork?”

37:97 They exclaimed, “Build a pyre for him, and cast him into the blazing fire!”

37:98 But whereas they sought to do evil unto him, We [frustrated their designs, and thus] brought them low.

37:99 And [Abraham] said, “Verily, I shall [leave this land and] go wherever my Sustainer will guide me!”

37:100 [And he prayed] “O my Sustainer! Bestow upon me the gift of (a son who shall be] one of the righteous!”


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.
