The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
By those who range themselves in rows; (1) and those who drive away [the wicked] with reproof (2) and those who recite the Exhortation; (3) Verily, verily, your Allah is one!- (4) the Lord of the heavens and the earth and of all that is between them; the Lord of the Easts. (5) We have indeed decked the lower heaven with beauty (in) the stars,- (6) and have protected it from every rebellious satan. (7) [So] they may not listen to the exalted assembly [of angels] and are pelted from every side, (8) Repelled; and for them is a constant punishment, (9) Some of them who stealthily steal words from the heavens are pursued by a glistening flame. (10) So ask them if they are more difficult to create, or the rest We have created? Indeed (man) We created from fermented clay. (11) No wonder you are surprised as they laugh with scorn. (12) When they are reminded, they do not pay heed, (13) And, when they see a Sign, turn it to mockery, (14) and say: "This is clearly nothing but [a mortal's] spellbinding eloquence! (15) When we have become dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then verily be raised? (16) Will our forefathers also be brought to life again?" (17) Say: Aye! and you shall be abject. (18) for that [resurrection which they deride] will be [upon them of a sudden, as if it were] but a single accusing cry - and then, lo! they will begin to see [the truth] (19) and they will say: 'Woe for us. This is the Day of Recompense' (20) This is the Day of Separation, which ye used to deny. (21)
