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 (the angels) who stand in ranks, (1) And those who restrain by reprimanding, (2) and by the reciters of the Reminder: (3) surely, your God is One, (4) The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, and Lord of the easts. (5) We have adorned the lowest heaven with the beauty of the planets; (6) a protection against every rebel satan; (7) so they cannot listen to the High Assembly, for they are pelted from every side. (8) driven away, and will suffer eternal punishment. (9) Except him who snatcheth away a word by stealth, and him then pursueth a glowing flame. (10) So ask them for a pronouncement -- Are they stronger in constitution, or those We created? We created them of clinging clay. (11) You marvel (at the wondrous creations of Allah) and they scoff at it, (12) and when they are admonished, they pay no heed; (13) and whenever they see some sign, they ridicule it, (14) And say, "This is nothing but evident sorcery! (15) “When we are dead and have turned into dust and bones, will we certainly be raised again?” (16) What, and our forefathers, the ancients' (17) Say: 'Yes, and in all lowliness.' (18) The Day of Judgment will come within a single roar and they will remain gazing at it. (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)
