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
By the aligners (angels) aligning. (1) by those who reprove severely, (2) By those (angels) who bring the Book and the Quran from Allah to mankind [Tafsir Ibn Kathir]. (3) Verily, verily, your Allah is one!- (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them and the Lord of the sun’s rising points. (5) We have decked the lower heavens with stars (6) and have made them secure against every rebellious, satanic force, (7) they listen not to the High Council, for they are pelted from every side, (8) driven away, and will suffer eternal punishment. (9) but if anyone does succeed in snatching a glimpse [of such knowledge,] he is [henceforth] pursued by a piercing flame. (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, you marvel, while they scoff. (12) and, when reminded, do not remember (13) and when they see a miracle, they mock (14) saying, "This is plain sorcery!" (15) What! when we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then certainly be raised, (16) And so also shall our forefathers of yore be raised to life?” (17) Say thou: "Yea, and ye shall then be humiliated (on account of your evil)." (18) There will only be a single jerk, and they will gape, (19) They will say: "Woe to us! This is the Day of Recompense!" (20) This is the Day of Decision which you belied. (21)
