The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
By those [angels] who range themselves in close ranks (1) by those who reprove severely, (2) By the angels reciting the praise. (3) your God is One, (4) He is the Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, the Lord of the Eastern regions. (5) Verily! We have adorned the near heaven with the stars (for beauty). (6) and have protected it from every rebellious satan. (7) The devils cannot hear those high above. They would be struck from all sides (8) Outcast, and theirs is a constant (or painful) torment. (9) Except him who snatcheth away a word by stealth, and him then pursueth a glowing flame. (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) (Muhammad), you will be surprised that they still mock (God's revelations). (12) When they are reminded, they do not pay heed, (13) and if they see any Sign, they laugh it away (14) And they say: Lo! this is mere magic; (15) “When we are dead and have turned into dust and bones, will we certainly be raised again?” (16) And our fathers too?" (17) Say: 'Yes, but worthless' (18) There will only be a single jerk, and they will gape, (19) They will say, "O woe to us! This is the Day of Recompense." (20) [They will be told], "This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny." (21)
