The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By the aligners (angels) aligning. (1) By those (angels) who drive the clouds in a good way. (2) and those who recite the Remembrance (3) Lo! thy Lord is surely One; (4) The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, and Lord of the easts. (5) Indeed, We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment of stars (6) to protect them from the rebellious satan. (7) These satans cannot listen to what transpires in the High Council for they are pelted away from every side (8) rejected, and theirs is an everlasting chastisement, (9) Except one who sometimes steals a part, so a blazing flame goes after him. (10) So ask them for a pronouncement -- Are they stronger in constitution, or those We created? We created them of clinging clay. (11) No wonder you are surprised as they laugh with scorn. (12) And when they are reminded, they mind not, (13) And when they see a sign, they ridicule (14) And they say: this Qur'an is naught but magic manifest. (15) "What! when we die, and become dust and bones, shall we (then) be raised up (again) (16) What, and our fathers, the ancients?' (17) Say: Aye! and you shall be abject. (18) There will only be a single jerk, and they will gape, (19) and they will say: 'Woe for us. This is the Day of Recompense' (20) [It will be said], "This is the Day of Judgement which you have been denying." (21)
