The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
By those who set the ranks in battle order (1) And those who drive away (the wicked) with reproof (2) And thus proclaim the Message (of Allah)! (3) that your Lord is the only Lord. (4) the Sustainer of the heavens and the earth and of all that is between them, and the Sustainer of all the points of sunrise! (5) Surely We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment, the stars, (6) and guarded it against all rebellious devils: (7) The devils cannot hear those high above. They would be struck from all sides (8) Outcast, and theirs is a perpetual torment; (9) And if any is able to snatch a fragment, he is pursued by a piercing flame. (10) So ask them for a pronouncement -- Are they stronger in constitution, or those We created? We created them of clinging clay. (11) Yet while you are filled with wonder, they just scoff; (12) And they do not understand, when explained to. (13) When they are shown a sign, they scoff at it (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) And also our forefathers? (17) Proclaim, “Yes, and with disgrace.” (18) Then it will be a single (compelling) cry; and behold, they will begin to see! (19) and they say, 'Woe, alas for us! This is the Day of Doom.' (20) [They will be told], "This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny." (21)
