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
I swear by those who draw themselves out in ranks (1) by those who reprove severely, (2) And those who recite the Reminder, (3) Indeed, your God is One, (4) Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all that is between them, and Lord of the sun's risings. (5) We have adorned the lower heaven with the adornment of the planets, (6) And (there is) a safeguard against every rebellious Shaitan. (7) The devils cannot hear those high above. They would be struck from all sides (8) cast out [from all grace,] with lasting suffering in store for them [in the life to come]; (9) Except one who snatches [some words] by theft, but they are pursued by a burning flame, piercing [in brightness]. (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) Nay! you wonder while they mock, (12) And they do not understand, when explained to. (13) and, when they see a sign, would scoff; (14) And they say: This is nothing but clear magic: (15) When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then, forsooth, be raised (again)? (16) What, and our forefathers, the ancients' (17) Say: 'Yes, but worthless' (18) for that [resurrection which they deride] will be [upon them of a sudden, as if it were] but a single accusing cry - and then, lo! they will begin to see [the truth] (19) And they will say: Ah! woe be unto us! this is the Day of Requital. (20) [They will be told], "This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny." (21)
