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 the Exhortation; (3) Verily, most surely, your God is One (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth, and of what between them is Lord of the Easts. (5) Lo! We have adorned the lowest heaven with an ornament, the planets; (6) to protect them from the rebellious satan. (7) So that they are not able to listen to the angels of higher (echelons), and are pelted from all sides (8) cast out [from all grace,] with lasting suffering in store for them [in the life to come]; (9) Except one who sometimes steals a part, so a blazing flame goes after him. (10) Therefore ask them (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him), “Are they a stronger creation, or are other things of our creation, (the angels, the heavens etc.)?” We have indeed 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 remember not. (13) and whenever they see some sign, they ridicule it, (14) And say: "This is only magic. (15) What, when we are dead and become dust and bones, shall we indeed be raised up? (16) And our fathers too?" (17) Say (O Muhammad): Ye, in truth; and ye will be brought low. (18) It will be but one Shout, then see, they are watching (19) And say: Ah, woe for us! This is the Day of Judgment. (20) This is the day of the judgment which you called a lie. (21)
