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 the angels ranged in ranks. (1) and restraining [from evil] by a call to restraint, (2) and those who recite the Exhortation; (3) Most surely your Allah is One: (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth, and of what between them is Lord of the Easts. (5) Lo! We have adorned the lowest heaven with an ornament, the planets; (6) And have placed therein a guard against any satan froward. (7) They cannot listen to the Highest Chiefs for they are pelted 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 stealing and they are pursued by a flaming fire of piercing brightness. (10) Then ask them (i.e. these polytheists, O Muhammad SAW): "Are they stronger as creation, or those (others like the heavens and the earth and the mountains, etc.) whom We have created?" Verily, We created them of a sticky clay. (11) No, you marvel, while they scoff. (12) And when they are warned they pay no heed. (13) and when they become aware of a [divine] message, they turn it to ridicule (14) it and say, "It is only plain magic". (15) "What! When we have died and become dust and bones, will we be brought back to life again, (16) What, and our fathers, the ancients?' (17) Say: 'Yes, but worthless' (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) And say: "Ah woe! This is the Day of Reckoning." (20) This is the Day of Separation, which ye used to deny. (21)
