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 the angels ranged in ranks. (1) And so are strong in repelling (evil), (2) and by the reciters of the Reminder: (3) that your Lord is the only Lord. (4) The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, and Lord of the easts. (5) We have indeed decked the lower heaven with beauty (in) the stars,- (6) (For beauty) and for guard against all obstinate rebellious evil spirits, (7) they listen not to the High Council, for they are pelted from every side, (8) Being driven off, and for them is a perpetual chastisement, (9) Except such as snatch away something by stealth, and they are pursued by a flaming fire, of piercing brightness. (10) Then ask them (O Muhammad): Are they stronger as a creation, or those (others) whom we have created? Lo! We created them of plastic clay. (11) You marvel (at the wondrous creations of Allah) and they scoff at it, (12) And, when they are admonished, pay no heed,- (13) and when they become aware of a [divine] message, they turn it to ridicule (14) And they say: this Qur'an is naught but magic manifest. (15) What! when we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then certainly be raised, (16) What, and our forefathers, the ancients' (17) Say, "Yes indeed, and you will be brought low." (18) It shall be but one shout, lo! they shall be staring. (19) And will say, “O our misfortune!” It will be said to them, “This is the Day of Justice.” (20) This is the day of the judgment which you called a lie. (21)
