The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
CONSIDER these [messages] ranged in serried ranks, (1) and the drivers driving, (2) and by the reciters of 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 every point of the sun's risings. (None has the right to be worshipped but Allah). (5) Lo! We have adorned the lowest heaven with an ornament, the planets; (6) And have placed therein a guard against any satan froward. (7) [So] they may not listen to the exalted assembly [of angels] and are pelted from every side, (8) To make them flee, and for them is a never-ending punishment. (9) Except such as snatch away something by stealing and they are pursued by a flaming fire of piercing brightness. (10) Ask them thou: are they stronger in structure or those others whom We have created? Verily We! We have created them of a sticky clay. (11) Aye! thou marvellest, and they scoff. (12) and when they are admonished, they pay no heed; (13) When they see a sign, they laugh at it, (14) And say, "This is not but obvious magic. (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: "Yea, indeed - and most abject will you then be!" (18) For it is only a single scaring, then behold, they are watching (19) They will say, "Woe to us!" (They will be told), "This is the day of receiving recompense". (20) (A voice will say,) "This is the Day of Sorting Out, whose truth ye (once) denied!" (21)
