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 Dispenser of Grace
By those [angels] lined up in rows (1) and the drivers driving, (2) and the reciters of a Remembrance, (3) Verily, verily, your Allah is one!- (4) Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all between them, and Lord of every point at the rising of the sun! (5) We have adorned the lowest heaven with the beauty of the planets; (6) and have protected it from every rebellious satan. (7) They cannot listen to the exalted assembly and they are thrown at from every side, (8) cast out [from all grace,] with lasting suffering in store for them [in the life to come]; (9) Except those who eavesdrop and are pursued by a shooting flame. (10) Just ask their opinion: are they the more difficult to create, or the (other) beings We have created? Them have We created out of a sticky clay! (11) Nay, but whereas thou dost marvel, they [only] scoff; (12) And when they are reminded, they pay no attention. (13) When they are shown a sign, they scoff at it (14) And they say: this Qur'an is naught but magic manifest. (15) When we are dead and turned to dust and bones, how can we be raised again, (16) Or our fathers of yore? (17) Say (O Muhammad): Ye, in truth; and ye will be brought low. (18) The Day of Judgment will come within a single roar and they will remain gazing at it. (19) And will say, “O our misfortune!” It will be said to them, “This is the Day of Justice.” (20) [And they will be told:] "This is the Day of Distinction [between the true and the false - the Day] which you were wont to call a lie!" (21)
