The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By those (angels) ranged in ranks (or rows). (1) by those who drive away the devil (to protect Our revelation), (2) Then those who recite, being mindful, (3) surely, your God is One, (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth, and of what between them is Lord of the Easts. (5) We have indeed adorned the lowest heaven with stars as ornaments. (6) And to protect it from every rebellious devil. (7) so they cannot listen to the High Assembly, 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 him who snatches off but once, then there follows him a brightly shining flame. (10) Therefore ask them (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him), “Are they a stronger creation, or are other things of our creation, (the angels, the heavens etc.)?” We have indeed created them from sticky clay. (11) No wonder you are surprised as they laugh with scorn. (12) And when they are reminded, they pay no attention. (13) And whenever they see a sign, they mock at it. (14) And they say, “This is nothing but clear magic.” (15) What, when we are dead and become dust and bones, shall we be resurrected. (16) What, and our forefathers, the ancients' (17) Say thou: and verily ye; shall then be despicable. (18) So that is just a single jolt, thereupon they will begin staring. (19) and they say, 'Woe, alas for us! This is the Day of Doom.' (20) [It will be said], "This is the Day of Judgement which you have been denying." (21)
