The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
By those [angels] lined up in rows (1) by those who reprove severely, (2) Then those who recite, being mindful, (3) Most surely 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) Surely We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment, the stars, (6) to protect them from the rebellious satan. (7) They cannot listen to the exalted assembly, and they are darted at from every side. (8) Being driven off, and for them is a perpetual chastisement, (9) Some of them who stealthily steal words from the heavens are pursued by a glistening flame. (10) Ask them thou: are they stronger in structure or those others whom We have created? Verily We! We have created them of a sticky clay. (11) Truly dost thou marvel, while they ridicule, (12) When they are reminded, they do not pay heed, (13) and when they become aware of a [divine] message, they turn it to ridicule (14) And say: "This is only magic. (15) When we have died and become dust and bones, are we indeed to be resurrected? (16) And our fathers too?" (17) Proclaim, “Yes, and with disgrace.” (18) So it shall only be a single cry, when lo! they shall see. (19) and they say, 'Woe, alas for us! This is the Day of Doom.' (20) (A voice will say,) "This is the Day of Sorting Out, whose truth ye (once) denied!" (21)
