The Quran literally means 'the recitation'.

It is the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be a revelation from God. It is widely regarded as the finest piece of literature in the Arabic language. Quranic chapters are called suras and verse ayahs.

Muslims believe the Quran was verbally revealed by God to Muhammad through the Angel Gabriel (Jibril), gradually over a period of approximately 23 years, beginning on 22 December 609 AD when Muhammad was 40 and concluding in 632 AD, the year of his death. Muslims regard the Quran as the most important miracle of Muhammad, a proof of his prophethood.

1 By those (angels) who drive the clouds in a good way. Quran 37:1
2 By those (angels) who bring the Book and the Quran from Allah to mankind [Tafsir Ibn Kathir]. Quran 37:2
3 Verily your Ilah (God) is indeed One (i.e. Allah); Quran 37:3
4 Lord of the heavens and of the earth, and all that is between them, and Lord of every point of the sun's risings. (None has the right to be worshipped but Allah). Quran 37:4
5 Verily! We have adorned the near heaven with the stars (for beauty). Quran 37:5
6 And to guard against every rebellious devil. Quran 37:6
7 They cannot listen to the higher group (angels) for they are pelted from every side. Quran 37:7
8 Outcast, and theirs is a constant (or painful) torment. Quran 37:8
9 Except such as snatch away something by stealing and they are pursued by a flaming fire of piercing brightness. Quran 37:9
10 Then ask them (i.e. these polytheists, O Muhammad SAW): "Are they stronger as creation, or those (others like the heavens and the earth and the mountains, etc.) whom We have created?" Verily, We created them of a sticky clay. Quran 37:10
11 Nay, you (O Muhammad SAW) wondered (at their insolence) while they mock (at you and at the Quran). Quran 37:11
12 And when they are reminded, they pay no attention. Quran 37:12
13 And when they see an Ayah (a sign, a proof, or an evidence) from Allah, they mock at it. Quran 37:13
14 And they say: "This is nothing but evident magic! Quran 37:14
15 "When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we (then) verily be resurrected? Quran 37:15
16 "And also our fathers of old?" Quran 37:16
17 Say (O Muhammad SAW): "Yes, and you shall then be humiliated." Quran 37:17
18 It will be a single Zajrah [shout (i.e. the second blowing of the Trumpet)], and behold, they will be staring! Quran 37:18
19 They will say: "Woe to us! This is the Day of Recompense!" Quran 37:19
20 (It will be said): "This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny." Quran 37:20
21 (It will be said to the angels): "Assemble those who did wrong, together with their companions (from the devils) and what they used to worship. Quran 37:21
22 "Instead of Allah, and lead them on to the way of flaming Fire (Hell); Quran 37:22
23 "But stop them, verily they are to be questioned. Quran 37:23
24 "What is the matter with you? Why do you not help one another (as you used to do in the world)?" Quran 37:24
25 Nay, but that Day they shall surrender, Quran 37:25
26 And they will turn to one another and question one another. Quran 37:26
27 They will say: "It was you who used to come to us from the right side [i.e. from the right side of one of us and beautify for us every evil, order us for polytheism, and stop us from the truth i.e. Islamic Monotheism and from every good deed]." Quran 37:27
28 They will reply: "Nay, you yourselves were not believers. Quran 37:28
29 "And we had no authority over you. Nay! But you were transgressing people (disobedient, polytheists, and disbelievers). Quran 37:29
30 "So now the Word of our Lord has been justified against us, that we shall certainly (have to) taste (the torment). Quran 37:30
31 "So we led you astray because we were ourselves astray." Quran 37:31
32 Then verily, that Day, they will (all) share in the torment. Quran 37:32
33 Certainly, that is how We deal with Al-Mujrimun (polytheists, sinners, criminals, the disobedient to Allah, etc.). Quran 37:33
34 Truly, when it was said to them: La ilaha ill-Allah "(none has the right to be worshipped but Allah)," they puffed themselves up with pride (i.e. denied it). Quran 37:34
35 And (they) said: "Are we going to abandon our aliha (gods) for the sake of a mad poet? Quran 37:35
36 Nay! he (Muhammad SAW) has come with the truth (i.e. Allah's Religion - Islamic Monotheism and this Quran) and he confirms the Messengers (before him who brought Allah's religion - Islamic Monotheism). Quran 37:36
37 Verily, you (pagans of Makkah) are going to taste the painful torment; Quran 37:37
38 And you will be requited nothing except for what you used to do (evil deeds, sins, and Allah's disobedience which you used to do in this world); Quran 37:38
39 Save the chosen slaves of Allah (faithful, obedient, true believers of Islamic Monotheism). Quran 37:39
40 For them there will be a known provision (in Paradise). Quran 37:40
41 Fruits; and they shall be honoured, Quran 37:41
42 In the Gardens of delight (Paradise), Quran 37:42
43 Facing one another on thrones, Quran 37:43
44 Round them will be passed a cup of pure wine; Quran 37:44
45 White, delicious to the drinkers, Quran 37:45
46 Neither they will have Ghoul (any kind of hurt, abdominal pain, headache, a sin, etc.) from that, nor will they suffer intoxication therefrom. Quran 37:46
47 And with them will be chaste females, restraining their glances (desiring none except their husbands), with wide and beautiful eyes. Quran 37:47
48 (Delicate and pure) as if they were (hidden) eggs (well) preserved. Quran 37:48
49 Then they will turn to one another, mutually questioning. Quran 37:49
50 A speaker of them will say: "Verily, I had a companion (in the world), Quran 37:50
51 Who used to say: "Are you among those who believe (in resurrection after death). Quran 37:51
52 "(That) when we die and become dust and bones, shall we indeed (be raised up) to receive reward or punishment (according to our deeds)?" Quran 37:52
53 (The man) said: "Will you look down?" Quran 37:53
54 So he looked down and saw him in the midst of the Fire. Quran 37:54
55 He said: "By Allah! You have nearly ruined me. Quran 37:55
56 "Had it not been for the Grace of my Lord, I would certainly have been among those brought forth (to Hell)." Quran 37:56
57 (Allah informs about that true believer that he said): "Are we then not to die (any more)? Quran 37:57
58 "Except our first death, and we shall not be punished? (after we have entered Paradise)." Quran 37:58
59 Truly, this is the supreme success! Quran 37:59
60 For the like of this let the workers work. Quran 37:60
61 Is that (Paradise) better entertainment or the tree of Zaqqum (a horrible tree in Hell)? Quran 37:61
62 Truly We have made it (as) a trail for the Zalimun (polytheists, disbelievers, wrong-doers, etc.). Quran 37:62
63 Verily, it is a tree that springs out of the bottom of Hell-fire, Quran 37:63
64 The shoots of its fruit-stalks are like the heads of Shayatin (devils); Quran 37:64
65 Truly, they will eat thereof and fill their bellies therewith. Quran 37:65
66 Then on the top of that they will be given boiling water to drink so that it becomes a mixture (of boiling water and Zaqqum in their bellies). Quran 37:66
67 Then thereafter, verily, their return is to the flaming fire of Hell. Quran 37:67
68 Verily, they found their fathers on the wrong path; Quran 37:68
69 So they (too) made haste to follow in their footsteps! Quran 37:69
70 And indeed most of the men of old went astray before them; Quran 37:70
71 And indeed We sent among them warners (Messengers); Quran 37:71
72 Then see what was the end of those who were warned (but heeded not). Quran 37:72
73 Except the chosen slaves of Allah (faithful, obedient, and true believers of Islamic Monotheism). Quran 37:73
74 And indeed Nuh (Noah) invoked Us, and We are the Best of those who answer (the request). Quran 37:74
75 And We rescued him and his family from the great distress (i.e. drowning), Quran 37:75
76 And, his progeny, them We made the survivors (i.e. Shem, Ham and Japheth). Quran 37:76
77 And left for him (a goodly remembrance) among generations to come in later times: Quran 37:77
78 Salamun (peace) be upon Nuh (Noah) (from Us) among the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists)!" Quran 37:78
79 Verily, thus We reward the Muhsinun (good-doers - see V. 2:112). Quran 37:79
80 Verily, he [Nuh (Noah)] was one of Our believing slaves. Quran 37:80
81 Then We drowned the other (disbelievers and polytheists, etc.). Quran 37:81
82 And, verily, among those who followed his [Nuh's (Noah)] way (Islamic Monotheism) was Ibrahim (Abraham). Quran 37:82
83 When he came to his Lord with a pure heart [attached to Allah Alone and none else, worshipping none but Allah Alone true Islamic Monotheism, pure from the filth of polytheism]. Quran 37:83
84 When he said to his father and to his people: "What is it that which you worship? Quran 37:84
85 "Is it a falsehood aliha (gods) other than Allah that you seek? Quran 37:85
86 "Then what do you think about the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns, and all that exists)?" Quran 37:86
87 Then he cast a glance at the stars (to deceive them), Quran 37:87
88 And he said: "Verily, I am sick (with plague. He did this trick to remain in their temple of idols to destroy them and not to accompany them to the pagan's feast)." Quran 37:88
89 So they turned away from him, and departed (for fear of the disease). Quran 37:89
90 Then he turned to their aliha (gods) and said: "Will you not eat (of the offering before you)? Quran 37:90
91 "What is the matter with you that you speak not?" Quran 37:91
92 Then he turned upon them, striking (them) with (his) right hand. Quran 37:92
93 Then they (the worshippers of idols) came, towards him, hastening. Quran 37:93
94 He said: "Worship you that which you (yourselves) carve? Quran 37:94
95 "While Allah has created you and what you make!" Quran 37:95
96 They said: "Build for him a building (it is said that the building was like a furnace) and throw him into the blazing fire!" Quran 37:96
97 So they plotted a plot against him, but We made them the lowest. Quran 37:97
98 And he said (after his rescue from the fire): "Verily, I am going to my Lord. He will guide me!" Quran 37:98
99 "My Lord! Grant me (offspring) from the righteous." Quran 37:99
100 So We gave him the glad tidings of a forbearing boy. Quran 37:100
101 And, when he (his son) was old enough to walk with him, he said: "O my son! I have seen in a dream that I am slaughtering you (offer you in sacrifice to Allah), so look what you think!" He said: "O my father! Do that which you are commanded, Insha' Allah (if Allah will), you shall find me of As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.)." Quran 37:101
102 Then, when they had both submitted themselves (to the Will of Allah), and he had laid him prostrate on his forehead (or on the side of his forehead for slaughtering); Quran 37:102
103 And We called out to him: "O Abraham! Quran 37:103
104 You have fulfilled the dream (vision)!" Verily! Thus do We reward the Muhsinun (good-doers - see V. 2:112). Quran 37:104
105 Verily, that indeed was a manifest trial Quran 37:105
106 And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice (i.e. a ram); Quran 37:106
107 And We left for him (a goodly remembrance) among generations (to come) in later times. Quran 37:107
108 Salamun (peace) be upon Ibrahim (Abraham)!" Quran 37:108
109 Thus indeed do We reward the Muhsinun (good-doers - see V. 2:112). Quran 37:109
110 Verily, he was one of Our believing slaves. Quran 37:110
111 And We gave him the glad tidings of Ishaque (Isaac) a Prophet from the righteous. Quran 37:111
112 We blessed him and Ishaque (Isaac), and of their progeny are (some) that do right, and some that plainly wrong themselves. Quran 37:112
113 And, indeed We gave Our Grace to Musa (Moses) and Harun (Aaron). Quran 37:113
114 And We saved them and their people from the great distress; Quran 37:114
115 And helped them, so that they became the victors; Quran 37:115
116 And We gave them the clear Scripture; Quran 37:116
117 And guided them to the Right Path; Quran 37:117
118 And We left for them (a goodly remembrance) among generations (to come) in later times; Quran 37:118
119 Salamun (peace) be upon Musa (Moses) and Harun (Aaron)!" Quran 37:119
120 Verily, thus do We reward the Muhsinun (good-doers - see V. 2:112). Quran 37:120
121 Verily! They were two of Our believing slaves. Quran 37:121
122 And verily, Iliyas (Elias) was one of the Messengers. Quran 37:122
123 When he said to his people: "Will you not fear Allah? Quran 37:123
124 "Will you call upon Ba'l (a well- known idol of his nation whom they used to worship) and forsake the Best of creators, Quran 37:124
125 "Allah, your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers?" Quran 37:125
126 But they denied him [Iliyas (Elias)], so they will certainly be brought forth (to the punishment), Quran 37:126
127 Except the chosen slaves of Allah. Quran 37:127
128 And We left for him (a goodly remembrance) among generations (to come) in later times; Quran 37:128
129 Salamun (peace) be upon Ilyasin (Elias)!" Quran 37:129
130 Verily, thus do We reward the Muhsinun (good-doers, who perform good deeds totally for Allah's sake only - see V. 2:112). Quran 37:130
131 Verily, he was one of Our believing slaves. Quran 37:131
132 And verily, Lout (Lot) was one of the Messengers. Quran 37:132
133 When We saved him and his family, all, Quran 37:133
134 Except an old woman (his wife) who was among those who remained behind. Quran 37:134
135 Then We destroyed the rest [i.e. the towns of Sodom at the place of the Dead Sea (now) in Palestine]. [See the "Book of History" by Ibn Kathir]. Quran 37:135
136 Verily, you pass by them in the morning. Quran 37:136
137 And at night; will you not then reflect? Quran 37:137
138 And, verily, Yunus (Jonah) was one of the Messengers. Quran 37:138
139 When he ran to the laden ship, Quran 37:139
140 He (agreed to) cast lots, and he was among the losers, Quran 37:140
141 Then a (big) fish swallowed him and he had done an act worthy of blame. Quran 37:141
142 Had he not been of them who glorify Allah, Quran 37:142
143 He would have indeed remained inside its belly (the fish) till the Day of Resurrection. Quran 37:143
144 But We cast him forth on the naked shore while he was sick, Quran 37:144
145 And We caused a plant of gourd to grow over him. Quran 37:145
146 And We sent him to a hundred thousand (people) or even more. Quran 37:146
147 And they believed; so We gave them enjoyment for a while. Quran 37:147
148 Now ask them (O Muhammad SAW): "Are there (only) daughters for your Lord and sons for them?" Quran 37:148
149 Or did We create the angels females while they were witnesses? Quran 37:149
150 Verily, it is of their falsehood that they (Quraish pagans) say: Quran 37:150
151 "Allah has begotten off spring or children (i.e. angels are the daughters of Allah)?" And, verily, they are liars! Quran 37:151
152 Has He (then) chosen daughters rather than sons? Quran 37:152
153 What is the matter with you? How do you decide? Quran 37:153
154 Will you not then remember? Quran 37:154
155 Or is there for you a plain authority? Quran 37:155
156 Then bring your Book if you are truthful! Quran 37:156
157 And they have invented a kinship between Him and the jinns, but the jinns know well that they have indeed to appear (before Him) (i.e. they will be brought for accounts). Quran 37:157
158 Glorified is Allah! (He is Free) from what they attribute unto Him! Quran 37:158
159 Except the slaves of Allah, whom He choses (for His Mercy i.e. true believers of Islamic Monotheism who do not attribute false things unto Allah). Quran 37:159
160 So, verily you (pagans) and those whom you worship (idols). Quran 37:160
161 Cannot lead astray [turn away from Him (Allah) anyone of the believers], Quran 37:161
162 Except those who are predestined to burn in Hell! Quran 37:162
163 There is not one of us (angels) but has his known place (or position); Quran 37:163
164 Verily, we (angels), we stand in rows for the prayers (as you Muslims stand in rows for your prayers); Quran 37:164
165 Verily, we (angels), we are they who glorify (Allah's Praises i.e. perform prayers). Quran 37:165
166 And indeed they (Arab pagans) used to say; Quran 37:166
167 "If we had a reminder as had the men of old (before the coming of Prophet Muhammad SAW as a Messenger of Allah). Quran 37:167
168 "We would have indeed been the chosen slaves of Allah (true believers of Islamic Monotheism)!" Quran 37:168
169 But (now that the Quran has come) they disbelieve therein (i.e. in the Quran and in Prophet Muhammad SAW, and all that which he brought, the Divine Revelation), so they will come to know! Quran 37:169
170 And, verily, Our Word has gone forth of old for Our slaves, the Messengers, Quran 37:170
171 That they verily would be made triumphant. Quran 37:171
172 And that Our hosts, they verily would be the victors. Quran 37:172
173 So turn away (O Muhammad SAW) from them for a while, Quran 37:173
174 And watch them and they shall see (the punishment)! Quran 37:174
175 Do they seek to hasten on Our Torment? Quran 37:175
176 Then, when it descends into their courtyard (i.e. near to them), evil will be the morning for those who had been warned! Quran 37:176
177 So turn (O Muhammad SAW) away from them for a while, Quran 37:177
178 And watch and they shall see (the torment)! Quran 37:178
179 Glorified be your Lord, the Lord of Honour and Power! (He is free) from what they attribute unto Him! Quran 37:179
180 And peace be on the Messengers! Quran 37:180
181 And all the praise and thanks be to Allah, Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). Quran 37:181
