The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
By those [angels] lined up in rows (1) by those who reprove severely, (2) and those who recite Our revelations, (3) Indeed your God is surely only One. (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth and that between them and Lord of the sunrises. (5) Lo! We have adorned the lowest heaven with an ornament, the planets; (6) and to preserve against every rebel Satan; (7) They cannot listen to the exalted assembly, and they are darted at from every side. (8) cast out [from all grace,] with lasting suffering in store for them [in the life to come]; (9) Except such as snatch away something by stealth, and they are pursued by a flaming fire, of piercing brightness. (10) So ask them, are they stronger in constitution, or those whom We have created. We have created them of sticky clay. (11) Truly dost thou marvel, while they ridicule, (12) When they are reminded, they do not remember. (13) and whenever they see some sign, they ridicule it, (14) And say, "This is not but obvious magic. (15) "When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we (then) verily be resurrected? (16) Or our fathers of yore? (17) Say: Aye! and you shall be abject. (18) There will be a single stern rebuff and lo, they will be observing with their own eyes (all that they had been warned against). (19) They will say, "Woe to us! This is the Day of Reckoning." (20) This is the Day of Judgment which ye were wont to belie. (21)
