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 away (the wicked) with reproof (2) And those who read (the Word) for a reminder, (3) Verily your God is One. (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth and that between them and Lord of the sunrises. (5) Behold, We have adorned the skies nearest to the earth with the beauty of stars, (6) Protecting them against every wayward devil, (7) [so that] they [who seek to learn the unknowable] should not be able to overhear the host on high, but shall be repelled from all sides, (8) and driven away to suffer the necessary torment. (9) Except such as snatch away something by stealing and they are pursued by a flaming fire of piercing brightness. (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) You marvel (at the wondrous creations of Allah) and they scoff at it, (12) And when they are reminded, they mind not, (13) And whenever they see a sign, they mock at it. (14) And they say: "This is nothing but evident magic! (15) When we have died and become dust and bones, are we indeed to be resurrected? (16) "And also our fathers of old?" (17) Say, "You will certainly be brought back to life in disgrace". (18) It shall be but one shout, lo! they shall be staring. (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)
