The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
I swear by those who draw themselves out in ranks (1) And those who drive away (the wicked) with reproof (2) And those who recite the Reminder, (3) Most surely your Allah is One: (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). (5) Behold, We have adorned the skies nearest to the earth with the beauty of stars, (6) With security from every froward devil. (7) The devils cannot hear those high above. They would be struck from all sides (8) With a driving fusillade, and theirs shall be a torment perpetual; (9) Except such as snatch away something by stealth, and they are pursued by a flaming fire, of piercing brightness. (10) So ask them (that is, human beings): “Were they harder to create than the objects We created?” We created them from sticky clay. (11) No wonder you are surprised as they laugh with scorn. (12) And, when they are admonished, pay no heed,- (13) and if they see any Sign, they laugh it away (14) And they say: this Qur'an is naught but magic manifest. (15) Why - after we have died and become mere dust and bones, shall we, forsooth, be raised from the dead? (16) "And also our fathers of old?" (17) Say: "Yea, indeed - and most abject will you then be!" (18) Then it will be a single (compelling) cry; and behold, they will begin to see! (19) And they shall say: O woe to us! this is the day of requital. (20) This is the Day of Decision which you belied. (21)
