The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
By oath of those who establish proper ranks. (1) and the drivers driving, (2) By those (angels) who bring the Book and the Quran from Allah to mankind [Tafsir Ibn Kathir]. (3) Verily, verily, your Allah is one!- (4) Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all between them, and Lord of every point at the rising of the sun! (5) Indeed, We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment of stars (6) and have protected it from every rebellious satan. (7) They cannot listen to the exalted assembly and they are thrown at from every side, (8) Repulsed, for they are under a perpetual penalty, (9) Except one who sometimes steals a part, so a blazing flame goes after him. (10) So ask them, are they stronger in constitution, or those whom We have created. We have created them of sticky clay. (11) Yet while you are filled with wonder, they just scoff; (12) And when they are reminded, they mind not, (13) When they see a sign, they laugh at it, (14) And they say: "This is nothing but evident magic! (15) What, when we are dead and become dust and bones, shall we be resurrected. (16) And also our forefathers? (17) Tell them: “Yes; and you are utterly helpless (against Allah).” (18) There is but one Shout, and lo! they behold, (19) They will say: "Woe to us! This is the Day of Recompense!" (20) This is the Day of Decision which you belied. (21)
