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
CONSIDER these [messages] ranged in serried ranks, (1) by those who drive away the devil (to protect Our revelation), (2) And thus proclaim the Message (of Allah)! (3) Verily your Ilah (God) is indeed One (i.e. Allah); (4) The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them, and the Lord of the Easts. (5) Verily! We have adorned the near heaven with the stars (for beauty). (6) to protect them from the rebellious satan. (7) they listen not to the High Council, for they are pelted from every side, (8) rejected, and theirs is an everlasting chastisement, (9) Some of them who stealthily steal words from the heavens are pursued by a glistening flame. (10) Then ask them (O Muhammad): Are they stronger as a creation, or those (others) whom we have created? Lo! We created them of plastic clay. (11) Rather you are surprised, whereas they keep mocking. (12) And when they are warned they pay no heed. (13) And when they behold a sign, they turn to scoffing. (14) and say: 'This is nothing but clear sorcery' (15) When we have become dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then verily be raised? (16) “And also our forefathers?” (17) Say: Aye! and you shall be abject. (18) It will be but one Shout, then see, they are watching (19) And will say, “O our misfortune!” It will be said to them, “This is the Day of Justice.” (20) "(Yes,) this is the Day of Judgement you had called a lie." (21)
