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
By those who range themselves in rows; (1) by those who reprove severely, (2) and those who recite the Remembrance (3) surely your God 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 to protect it from every rebellious 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) To make them flee, and for them is a never-ending punishment. (9) Save him who snatcheth a fragment, and there pursueth him a piercing flame. (10) So ask them (that is, human beings): “Were they harder to create than the objects We created?” We created them from sticky clay. (11) No wonder you are surprised as they laugh with scorn. (12) And when they are admonished, they receive not admonition. (13) And, when they see a Sign, turn it to mockery, (14) and say: 'This is nothing but clear sorcery' (15) Is it ever possible that after we die and are reduced to dust and (a skeleton of) bones, we will be raised to life? (16) And also our forefathers? (17) Say, "You will certainly be brought back to life in disgrace". (18) It will be a single Zajrah [shout (i.e. the second blowing of the Trumpet)], and behold, they will be staring! (19) and they will say: 'Woe for us. This is the Day of Recompense' (20) [They will be told], "This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny." (21)
