The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
By those (angels) ranged in ranks (or rows). (1) Then those who drive away with reproof, (2) And those who recite the Reminder, (3) that your Lord is the only Lord. (4) Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all that is between them, and Lord of the sun's risings. (5) Surely We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment, the stars, (6) to protect them from the rebellious satan. (7) They cannot listen to the exalted assembly and they are thrown at from every side, (8) and driven away to suffer the necessary torment. (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) No, you marvel, while they scoff. (12) When they are reminded, they do not pay heed, (13) And when they see a sign they incite one another to scoff, (14) And say, "This is not but obvious magic. (15) Why - after we have died and become mere dust and bones, shall we, forsooth, be raised from the dead? (16) along with our forefathers?" (17) Say thou: "Yea, and ye shall then be humiliated (on account of your evil)." (18) There is but one Shout, and lo! they behold, (19) They will then say: “Woe for us. This is the Day of Judgement.” (20) (It will be said): "This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny." (21)
