The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
CONSIDER these [messages] ranged in serried ranks, (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 of what between them is Lord of the Easts. (5) He decked the nearest heavens with ornaments 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) cast out [from all grace,] with lasting suffering in store for them [in the life to come]; (9) Except him who snatches off but once, then there follows him a brightly shining flame. (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) No, you marvel, while they scoff. (12) And heed not when they are reminded, (13) and, when they see a sign, would scoff; (14) and say: "This is clearly nothing but [a mortal's] spellbinding eloquence! (15) They say, "Shall we be brought to life again after we die and turn into dust and bones? (16) "And also our fathers of old?" (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 say, 'Woe, alas for us! This is the Day of Doom.' (20) This is the Day of Judgment which ye were wont to belie. (21)
