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 those [angels] lined up in rows (1) and the drivers driving, (2) and those who recite the Exhortation; (3) Indeed your God is surely only One. (4) the Lord of the heavens and the earth and of all that is between them; the Lord of the Easts. (5) We have adorned the lowest heaven with the beauty of the planets; (6) and to preserve against every rebel Satan; (7) they listen not to the High Council, for they are pelted from every side, (8) Repulsed, for they are under a perpetual penalty, (9) And if any is able to snatch a fragment, he is pursued by a piercing 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) Nay, but whereas thou dost marvel, they [only] scoff; (12) And they do not understand, when explained to. (13) When they see a sign, they laugh at it, (14) and say: 'This is nothing but clear sorcery' (15) Why - after we have died and become mere dust and bones, shall we, forsooth, be raised from the dead? (16) Will our forefathers also be brought to life again?" (17) Say (O Muhammad): Ye, in truth; and ye will be brought low. (18) It will be a single Zajrah [shout (i.e. the second blowing of the Trumpet)], and behold, they will be staring! (19) They will say, "Woe to us! This is the Day of Reckoning." (20) This is the Day of Judgment in which you disbelieved. (21)
