The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
By those [angels] who range themselves in close ranks (1) And those who drive away (the wicked) with reproof (2) And those who recite the message, (3) Verily, most surely, your God is One (4) the Lord of the heavens and the earth and of all that is between them; the Lord of the Easts. (5) We have indeed decked the lower heaven with beauty (in) the stars,- (6) And as protection against every rebellious devil (7) So that they are not able to listen to the angels of higher (echelons), and are pelted from all sides (8) With a driving fusillade, and theirs shall be a torment perpetual; (9) Except one who sometimes steals a part, so a blazing flame goes after him. (10) AND NOW ask those [who deny the truth] to enlighten thee: Were they more difficult to create than all those [untold marvels] that We have created? - for, behold, them have We created out of [mere] clay commingled with water! (11) You marvel (at the wondrous creations of Allah) and they scoff at it, (12) They pay no attention when they are reminded (13) And when they see an Ayah (a sign, a proof, or an evidence) from Allah, they mock at it. (14) saying, "This is plain sorcery!" (15) When we have died and become dust and bones, are we indeed to be resurrected? (16) What, and our fathers, the ancients?' (17) You say: "Yes; and you will be lowly made." (18) for that [resurrection which they deride] will be [upon them of a sudden, as if it were] but a single accusing cry - and then, lo! they will begin to see [the truth] (19) and will say: "Oh, woe unto us! This is the Day of Judgment!" (20) This is the Day of Judgment which ye were wont to belie. (21)
