وَالصَّافَّاتِ صَفًّا
CONSIDER these [messages] ranged in serried ranks, (1)
فَالزَّاجِرَاتِ زَجْرًا
and restraining [from evil] by a call to restraint, (2)
فَالتَّالِيَاتِ ذِكْرًا
and conveying [to all the world] a reminder: (3)
إِنَّ إِلَٰهَكُمْ لَوَاحِدٌ
Verily, most surely, your God is One – (4)
رَبُّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا وَرَبُّ الْمَشَارِقِ
the Sustainer of the heavens and the earth and of all that is between them, and the Sustainer of all the points of sunrise! (5)
إِنَّا زَيَّنَّا السَّمَاءَ الدُّنْيَا بِزِينَةٍ الْكَوَاكِبِ
Behold, We have adorned the skies nearest to the earth with the beauty of stars, (6)
وَحِفْظًا مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْطَانٍ مَارِدٍ
and have made them secure against every rebellious, satanic force, (7)
لَا يَسَّمَّعُونَ إِلَى الْمَلَإِ الْأَعْلَىٰ وَيُقْذَفُونَ مِنْ كُلِّ جَانِبٍ
[so that] they [who seek to learn the unknowable] should not be able to overhear the host on high, but shall be repelled from all sides, (8)
دُحُورًا وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ وَاصِبٌ
cast out [from all grace], with lasting suffering in store for them [in the life to come]; (9)
إِلَّا مَنْ خَطِفَ الْخَطْفَةَ فَأَتْبَعَهُ شِهَابٌ ثَاقِبٌ
but if anyone does succeed in snatching a glimpse [of such knowledge], he is [henceforth] pursued by a piercing flame. (10)
