Drawn Up in Ranks
In the name of
Allah, Gracious, Merciful.
1By those who range themselves in ranks.1
2And so are strong in repelling evil.
3And thus proclaim the message!
4Verily, verily, your Allah is One!
5Lord of the heavens and of the earth, and all between them, and Lord of
every point at the rising of the sun!
6We have indeed decked the lower heaven with beauty in the stars.
7And for guard against all obstinate rebellious evil spirits.
8They should not strain their ears in the direction of the exalted
assembly, but be cast away from every side.2
9Repulsed for they are under a perpetual penalty.
1Wa saffati saffa
4Inna ilahakum lawahid
5Rabbus samawati wal ardi wa ma bainahuma wa rabbul masyariq

1. There are several interpretations to this
verse, Yusuf Ali, Muhammad Ali, Farid and Sale each talk about some aspect
of the varying views. Those who range themselves in ranks could be angels,
holy men and Muslim in battle array. Verses one to three appears to be
shedding light on those who range themselves in ranks and talks about what
such men do.
2. The Bible tells us that Satan can stand
before God to accuse the faithful (Job 1:6-12, 2:1-7). In 1 Peter 5:8; we
are told that Satan is wild, looking for whom he may devour. It is evident
that Satan does not work alone but appoints demons to follow the righteous
and to report back to him. In this light then, they do hear and see what is
said and done in the exalted ranks, Though they not see and hear everything,
which is why no fortune teller can ever give a 100% prediction all the time.
They are able to predict what they have knowledge of and not what they are
ignorant about. By the way the jinns who could not come near the exalted
assembly, however heard the Qur’an being recited and became converted
according to Qur’an 72:1.
10Except such as snatch away something by stealth and they are pursued by a
flaming fire of piercing brightness.
11Just ask their opinion: are they the more difficult to create or the other
beings We have created? We have created them out of a sticky clay!3
12Truly do you marvel while they ridicule.
13And when they are admonished pay no heed.
14And when they see a sign, they turn it to mockery.
15And say “This is nothing but evident sorcery!
16“What! when we die and become dust and bones shall we be raised up again?
17“And also our fathers of old?”
18Say: “Yea, and you shall then be humiliated on account of your evil.”
19Then it will be a single cry; and behold they will begin to see!
10Illa man khatifal katfata fa atbaahu sihabun saqib
11Fastaftihim ahum asyad du khalqan am man khalaqna inna khalaqnahum min

17Awa aba unal awwalun
18Qul naam wa antum dakhirun
19Fa innama hiya zajratuw wahidatun fa iza hum yanzurun
3. Verses 10 and 11 are about the jinns or the
fallen angels whom according to Qur’an 15:27 were created from the fire of
scorching wind and in this case contradicts verse which says that they were
made from a sticky clay. The Bible does not give us any clue as to the
substance by which the angels were created. However, seeing that both the
good and bad angels were created by God before the later rebelled and were
cast out heaven it will be safe to say that they are of the stock.
20They will say “Ah! woe to us! This is the day of judgment!”
21“This is the day of sorting out whose truth you denied!”
22“Bring them up” it shall be said “The wrongdoers and their wives and the
things they worshiped.
23“Besides Allah and lead them to the way, to the fire!
24“And stop them for they must be asked:
25“What is the matter with you that you help not each other?’ “
26No, but that day, they shall submit;
27And they will turn to one another and question one another.
28They will say: “It was you who used to come to us from the right hand!”
29They will reply: “No, you yourselves had no faith!

30“And we had no authority over you. No, it was you who were a people in
31“So now has the word of our Lord been proved true against us, that we
shall indeed taste the punishment of our sins:
32“We led you astray: for truly we were ourselves astray.”4
33Truly, that day they will share in the penalty.
34Verily, that is how We shall deal with sinners.
35For they, when they were told that there is no god except Allah, would
puff themselves up with pride.
36And say: “What! shall we give up our gods for the sake of a possessed
37No! He has come with the truth and he confirms the message of the apostles
38You shall indeed taste of the grievous penalty.

39And it will be no more than the retribution of what you have wrought.
40But the sincere servants of Allah.
41For them is a determined sustenance.
42Fruits, and they shall enjoy honor and dignity.
43In gardens of felicity.
44Facing each other on thrones:
45Round will be passed to them a cup from a clear flowing fountain.
46Crystal white of a taste delicious to those who drink.
47Free from headiness; nor will they suffer intoxication therefrom.
48And beside them will be chaste women; restraining their glances with big
49As if they were eggs closely guarded.
50Then they will turn to one another and question one another.

4. It is very
important to know which of the world’s most popular leaders, Jesus and
Muhammad would be able to lead us to heaven. Concerning Heaven and hell this
is what is promised their followers: Jesus will lead His followers to heaven
(John 3:18, 14:1-3) not hell. Muhammad’s followers are promised hell (Qur’an 19:71) not heaven. These passages are self explanatory, the way to heaven is
for those who follow Jesus, who is the Word of God, John 1:1-3, Qur’an 3:45.
51One of them will start the talk and say: “I had an intimate companion.
52“Who used to say ‛What! are you among those who bear witness to the truth?
53“When we die and become dust and bones shall we indeed receive rewards and
54He said: “Would you like to look down?”
55He looked down and saw him in the midst of the fire.5
56He said: “By Allah! You were little short of bringing me to perdition!
57“And had it not been for the grace of my Lord I should certainly have been
among those brought there!
58“Is it that we shall not die
59“Except our first death and that we shall not be punished?”
60Verily, this is the supreme achievement!
61For the like of this, let all strive who wish to strive.
51Qala qa ilum minhum inni kana li qarijn

5. There is no
indication whether this is a true story or a parable, in any case it leaves
you wondering what this all about. The closest Biblical story this comes
nearer to is the parable of Abraham, Lazarus and the rich man in Luke 16:20-25.
A beggar named Lazarus, who was covered with sores,
was brought to his gate. He was always craving to satisfy his hunger with
what fell from the rich man's table. In fact, even the dogs used to come and
lick his sores. "One day the beggar died and was carried away by the angels
to Abraham's side. The rich man also died and was buried. In the afterlife,
where he was in constant torture, he looked up and saw Abraham far away and
Lazarus by his side. So he shouted, 'Father Abraham, have mercy on me! Send
Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and to cool off my tongue,
because I am suffering in this fire.' But Abraham said, 'My child, remember
that during your lifetime you received blessings, while Lazarus received
hardships. But now he is being comforted here, while you suffer.
62Is that the better entertainment or the tree of Zaqqum?6
63For We have truly made it a trial for the wrongdoers.
64For it is a tree that springs out of the bottom of hell fire:
65The shoots of its fruit stalks are like the heads of devils:
66Truly, they will eat thereof and fill their bellies therewith.
67Then on top of that they will be given a mixture made of boiling water.
68Then shall their return be to the fire.
69Truly they found their fathers on the wrong path;
70So they were rushed down on their footsteps!
71And truly before them many of the ancients went astray.
72And We sent among them apostles to admonish them.
73Then see what was the end of those who were admonished.

6. Yusuf Ali in
Qur’an 17:60 says that; ‘The tree Zaqqum, a bitter and pungent tree
described as growing at the bottom of Hell, a type of all that is
disagreeable. Muhammad Ali quoting from the dialect of Ifriqiyah, says it
signifies fresh butter with dates. The Qur’an teaches that it is food of
those in hell from verse 62-67.

74Except the sincere servants of Allah.
75And Noah cried to Us and We are the best to hear prayer.
76And We delivered him and his people from the great calamity.
77And made his progeny to endure;
78And We left for him among generations to come in later times:
79“Peace and salutation to Noah among the nations!”
80This is how We reward those who do right.
81For he was one of Our believing servants.
82Then the rest We overwhelmed in the flood.
83Verily, among those who followed his way was Abraham.7
84Behold, he approached his Lord with a sound heart.
74Illa ibadal lahil mukhlasin

7. Abraham was not
a follower of Noah, according to Genesis 12, God Himself called Abraham to
follow Him, with no third person influence as it is in most conversions.
[Commentary continues below.]
85Behold, he said to his father and to his people “What is that which you
86“You desire false gods other than Allah?
87“Then what is your idea about the Lord of the worlds?”
88Then did he cast a glance at the stars.
89And he said “I am indeed sick!”
90So they turned away from him and departed.
91Then did he turn to their gods and said “Will you not eat?...
92“What is the matter with you that you speak not?”
93Then did he turn upon them, striking them with the right hand.
94Then came the worshipers with hurried steps and faced hi).
95He said: “You worship that which you have carved?
96“And Allah has created you and your handiwork!”

97They said: “Build him a furnace and throw him into the blazing fire!”8
98They then sought a stratagem against him but We made them the ones most
99He said: “I will go to my Lord! He will surely guide me!
100“O my Lord! grant me a righteous son!”
101So We gave him the good news of a boy ready to suffer and forbear.
102Then when he reached the age of serious work with him, he said: “O my
son! I see in vision that I offer you in sacrifice: now see what is your
view!” He said: “O my father! do as you are commanded: you will find me if
Allah so wills one practicing patience and constancy!”9
103So when they had both submitted their wills and he had laid him prostrate
on his forehead.
104And We called out to him “O Abraham!

8. Three Hebrew
boys Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed‑nego in the day s of Nebuchadnezzar were
made to go to the fiery furnace and not Abraham.
9. Abraham did not
ask for a son, god promised him a son which took ten years to be fulfilled
when Isaac was born. Between the time of the promise to its fulfillment,
Abraham and Sarah became impatient and therefore Abraham went in to his
wife’s maid and Ishmael was born (Genesis 12, 18) When Isaac was born, it
was a test of faith when God asked Abraham to offer him in sacrifice to God.
This did not happen to Ishmael according to Genesis 22:1-18:
After these things God tested Abraham and said to him,
"Abraham!" And he said, "Here am I." He said, "Take your son, your only son
Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a
burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you."
So Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his
donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and his son Isaac. And he
cut the wood for the burnt offering and arose and went to the place of which
God had told him. On the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the
place from afar.
Then Abraham said to his young men, "Stay here with
the donkey; I and the boy will go over there and worship and come again to
you." And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Isaac
his son. And he took in his hand the fire and the knife. So they went both
of them together.
And Isaac said to his father Abraham, "My father!" And
he said, "Here am I, my son." He said, "Behold, the fire and the wood, but
where is the lamb for a burnt offering?" Abraham said, "God will provide for
himself the lamb for a burnt offering, my son."
So they went both of them together. When they came to
the place of which God had told him, Abraham built the altar there and laid
the wood in order and bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar, on top
of the wood. Then Abraham reached out his hand and took the knife to
slaughter his son. But the angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and
said, "Abraham, Abraham!" And he said, "Here am I." He said, "Do not lay
your hand on the boy or do anything to him, for now I know that you fear
God, seeing you have not withheld your son, your only son, from me."
And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold,
behind him was a ram, caught in a thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and
took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son. So
Abraham called the name of that place, "The LORD will provide"; as it is
said to this day, "On the mount of the LORD it shall be provided." And the
angel of the LORD called to Abraham a second time from heaven and said, "By
myself I have sworn, declares the LORD, because you have done this and have
not withheld your son, your only son, I will surely bless you, and I will
surely multiply your offspring as the stars of heaven and as the sand that
is on the seashore. And your offspring shall possess the gate of his
enemies, and in your offspring shall all the nations of the earth be
blessed, because you have obeyed my voice."
Muslims say it was Ishmael that Abraham offered in sacrifice, but then
again, The Qur’an even says that Jesus did not die (Qur’an 4:157-158) Allah
says that Mary is another whom Jesus may have told mankind to worship in
addition to Allah (Qur’an 5:115-116). So it should not be surprising if the Qur’an claims Ishmael was sacrificed instead of Isaac.
105“You have already fulfilled the vision!” thus indeed do We reward those
who do right.
106For this was obviously a trial
107And We ransomed him with a momentous sacrifice:
108And We left for him among generations in later times:
109“Peace and salutation to Abraham!”
110This is how We reward those who do right.
111For he was one of Our believing servants.
112And We gave him the good news of Isaac, a prophet, one of the righteous.10
113And We blessed him and Isaac: but of their progeny are some that do right
and some that obviously do wrong to their own souls.
114Again We bestowed Our favor on Moses and Aaron.

10. Isaac was not a prophet, although Islam makes him out to be one.
It is for this reason that the Islam teaches that are 124,000 prophets
throughout the ages and they must all be believed or accepted in order to be

115And We delivered them and their people from great calamity;
116And We helped them so they overcame;
117And We gave them the book which helps to make things clear;11
118And We guided them to the straight way.
119And We left this blessing for them among generations to come in later
120“Peace and salutation to Moses and Aaron!”
121This is how We reward those who do right.
122For they were two of Our believing servants.
123And so also was Elias among those sent.
124Behold he said to his people “Will you not fear?
125“Will you call upon Baal and forsake the best of creators.

11. Moses and Aaron
were not given any Book, the closest they came to was the reception of the
decalogue which were on two tablets of stone. Moses wrote most of the Books
attributed to his name, they were not given to by Allah.
[Commentary continues below.]
126“Allah, your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of old?”
127But they rejected him and they will certainly be called up.
128Except the sincere and devoted servants of Allah.
129And We left for him among generations in later times:
130“Peace and salutation to such as Elias!”
131This is how We reward those who do right.
132For He was one of Our believing servants.
133And so also was Lut among those sent.
134Behold, We delivered him and his all adherents.
135Except an old woman who was among those who lagged behind:12
136Then We destroyed the rest.
137And verily, you pass by their sites by day.

12. Lot’s wife
turned back and turned into a pillar of salt, and she not any ordinary old
woman as the Qur’an makes it out to be.
[Commentary continues below.]
138And by night: will you not understand?
139So also was Jonah among those sent.
140When he ran away to the ship fully laden.
141He agreed to cast lots and he was condemned:
142Then the big fish did swallow him and he had done acts worthy of blame.
143Had it not been that he repented and glorified Allah
144He would certainly have remained inside the fish till the day of
145But We cast him forth on the naked shore in a state of sickness.13
146And We caused to grow over him a spreading plant of the gourd kind.
147And We sent him to a hundred thousand men or more.
148And they believed; so We permitted them to enjoy for a while.14

146Wa an batna alaihi sajaratam miyyaqtin.
147Wa arsalnahu ila mi ati alfin au yazidun.
148Fa amanu famat tanahum ila hin.
13. Jonah was not
just cast out, after being in the belly of the fish, he prayed to God and
the fish vomited him out on the shore of Nineveh. Jonah 2:1-10:
Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from the belly
of the fish, saying, "I called out to the LORD, out of my distress, and he
answered me; out of the belly of Sheol I cried, and you heard my voice. For
you cast me into the deep, into the heart of the seas, and the flood
surrounded me; all your waves and your billows passed over me. Then I said,
'I am driven away from your sight; Yet I shall again look upon your holy
temple.' The waters closed in over me to take my life; the deep surrounded
me; weeds were wrapped about my head at the roots of the mountains. I went
down to the land whose bars closed upon me forever; yet you brought up my
life from the pit, O LORD my God. When my life was fainting away, I
remembered the LORD, and my prayer came to you, into your holy temple. Those
who pay regard to vain idols forsake their hope of steadfast love. But I
with the voice of thanksgiving will sacrifice to you; what I have vowed I
will pay. Salvation belongs to the LORD!"
And the LORD spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah
out upon the dry land.
14. When Jonah came
out of the belly of the fish, he went out to preach to the city and then
waited for the city to be destroyed, it was during that time that God
created the plant with the wider leaves to provide shade for Jonah, he
became angry when the people repented and therefore God did not have to
destroy them (4:1-11).
149Now ask them their opinion: is it that your Lord has daughters and they
150Or that We created the angels female and they are witnesses thereto?
151Is it not that they say from their own invention.
152“Has Allah begotten children”? But they are liars!
153Did He choose daughters rather than sons?
154What is the matter with you? How do you judge?
155Will you not then receive admonition?
156Or have you an authority manifest?
157Then bring your book if you are truthful.
158And they have invented a blood relationship between Him and the jinns:
but the jinns know that they have indeed to appear before His judgment-seat!

159Glory to Allah! He is free from the things they ascribe to Him!
160Not so the servants of Allah, sincere and devoted.
161For verily, neither you nor those you worship.
162Can lead into temptation concerning Allah
163Except such as are going to the blazing fire!
164“And not one of us but has a place appointed.”
165“And verily, we are ranged in ranks for service:
166“And verily, we are those who declare Allah’s glory!”
167And there were those who said.
168“If only we had had before us a message from those of old.
169“We should certainly have been servants of Allah!”
170But they reject it: but soon will they know!
171And already has Our word been passed before to Our servants sent.

173And that Our forces they surely must conquer.
174So turn away from them for a little while.
175And watch them and they soon shall see!
176Do they wish to hurry on Our punishment?
177But when it descends into the open space before them, evil will be the
morning for those who were warned!
178So turn away from them for a little while,
179And watch, and they soon shall see!
180Glory to your Lord, the Lord of honor and power! He is free from what
they ascribe to Him!
181And peace on the apostles!
182And praise to Allah the Lord of the worlds.
