The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
By those (angels) ranged in ranks (or rows). (1) and the scarers scaring (2) and those who recite the Exhortation; (3) Verily, verily, your Allah is one!- (4) Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all that is between them, and Lord of the sun's risings. (5) Indeed, We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment of stars (6) a protection against every rebel satan; (7) They cannot listen to the Highest Chiefs 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) So ask them for a pronouncement -- Are they stronger in constitution, or those We created? We created them of clinging clay. (11) Nay, but thou dost marvel when they mock (12) And when they are reminded, they mind not, (13) And seek to scoff when they behold a portent. (14) And they say, “This is nothing but clear magic.” (15) What, when we are dead and become dust and bones, shall we indeed be raised up? (16) and perhaps also our forebears of old?" (17) Say: 'Yes, but worthless' (18) There is but one Shout, and lo! they behold, (19) They will say, "Woe to us! This is the Day of Reckoning." (20) (It will be said): "This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny." (21)
