The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
By the angels ranged in ranks. (1) and the scarers scaring (2) and those who recite Our revelations, (3) Most surely your Allah is 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 adorned the lower heaven with the adornment of the stars (6) Protecting them against every wayward devil, (7) These satans cannot listen to what transpires in the High Council for they are pelted away from every side (8) and driven away to suffer the necessary torment. (9) Except him who snatches off but once, then there follows him a brightly shining flame. (10) So ask them for a pronouncement -- Are they stronger in constitution, or those We created? We created them of clinging clay. (11) Nay, you (O Muhammad SAW) wondered (at their insolence) while they mock (at you and at the Quran). (12) and when they are admonished, they pay no heed; (13) And when they behold a sign, they turn to scoffing. (14) And say, "This is nothing but evident sorcery! (15) When we have died and become dust and bones, are we indeed to be resurrected? (16) What, and our forefathers, the ancients' (17) Say, "Yes indeed, and you will be brought low." (18) It will be only one shout, and at once they will be observing. (19) and they will say: 'Woe for us. This is the Day of Recompense' (20) This is the Day of Judgment in which you disbelieved. (21)
