The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
I CALL TO witness those who stand arrayed in rows, (1) And those who drive [the clouds] (2) And thus proclaim the Message (of Allah)! (3) Indeed your God is surely only One. (4) The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them, and the Lord of the Easts. (5) We have decked the lower heavens with stars (6) and have made them secure against every rebellious, satanic force, (7) [So] they may not listen to the exalted assembly [of angels] and are pelted from every side, (8) rejected, and theirs is an everlasting chastisement, (9) And if any is able to snatch a fragment, he is pursued by 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) Yet while you are filled with wonder, they just scoff; (12) and when they are reminded [of the truth,] they refuse to take it to heart; (13) And when they see a sign they incite one another to scoff, (14) And they say: "This is nothing but evident magic! (15) They say, "Shall we be brought to life again after we die and turn into dust and bones? (16) And our forefathers [as well]?" (17) Tell them: “Yes; and you are utterly helpless (against Allah).” (18) There is but one Shout, and lo! they behold, (19) They will say, "Woe to us! This is the Day of Reckoning." (20) "(Yes,) this is the Day of Judgement you had called a lie." (21)
