The Qurʾan What is This? A current English-language version of the Qur'an, published in 2004
Translation by M.A.S. Abdel Haleem

37. Ranged in Rowsa Cf. 37: 165–6; 78: 38. (99 – 122)

99He said, ‘I will go to my Lord: He is sure to guide me. 100Lord, grant me a righteous son,’ 101so We gave him the good news that he would have a patient son. 102When the boy was old enough to work with his father, Abraham said, ‘My son, I have seen myself sacrificing you in a dream. What do you think?’ He said, ‘Father, do as you are commanded and, God willing, you will find me steadfast.’ 103When they had both submitted to God, and he had laid his son down on the side of his face, 104We called out to him, ‘Abraham, 105you have fulfilled the dream.’ This is how We reward those who do good—106it was a test to prove [their true characters]—107We ransomed his son with a momentous sacrifice, 108and We let him be praised by succeeding generations: 109’Peace be upon Abraham!’ 110This is how We reward those who do good: 111truly he was one of Our faithful servants.

112We gave Abraham the good news of Isaac—a prophet and a righteous man—113and blessed him and Isaac too: some of their offspring were good, but some clearly wronged themselves. 114We also bestowed Our favour on Moses and Aaron: 115We saved them and their people from great distress;116We helped them, so they were the ones to succeed;117We gave them the Scripture that makes things clear;118We guided them to the right path;119We let them be praised by succeeding generations: 120‘Peace be upon Moses and Aaron!’ 121This is how We reward those who do good: 122truly they were among Our faithful servants.
