The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
By the rangers ranging (1) By the angels driving away. (2) and those who recite Our revelations, (3) Verily, most 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 adorned the lower heaven with the adornment of the stars (6) With security from every froward devil. (7) [so that] they [who seek to learn the unknowable] should not be able to overhear the host on high, but shall be repelled from all sides, (8) and driven away to suffer the necessary torment. (9) Some of them who stealthily steal words from the heavens are pursued by a glistening 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 reminded [of the truth,] they refuse to take it to heart; (13) and when they become aware of a [divine] message, they turn it to ridicule (14) and they say, 'This is nothing but manifest sorcery. (15) "What! when we die, and become dust and bones, shall we (then) be raised up (again) (16) “And also our forefathers?” (17) Say: Aye! and you shall be abject. (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) “Yes, this is the Day of Final Decision that you used to deny as a lie.” (21)
