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
CONSIDER these [messages] ranged in serried ranks, (1) By those (angels) who drive the clouds in a good way. (2) and by the reciters of the Reminder: (3) Verily, verily, your Allah is one!- (4) the Lord of the heavens and the earth and of all that is between them; the Lord of the Easts. (5) We have adorned the lower heaven with the adornment of the planets, (6) and guarded it against all rebellious devils: (7) They cannot listen to the exalted assembly and they are thrown at from every side, (8) To make them flee, and for them is a never-ending punishment. (9) Except one who sometimes steals a part, so a blazing flame goes after him. (10) So, ask those who deny the truth if it was harder to create them than all the other things We have created? We created them from sticky clay. (11) (Muhammad), you will be surprised that they still mock (God's revelations). (12) They pay no attention when they are reminded (13) and when they become aware of a [divine] message, they turn it to ridicule (14) And they say: Lo! this is mere magic; (15) When we are dead and turned to dust and bones, how can we be raised again, (16) and perhaps also our forebears of old?" (17) Say: Aye! and you shall be abject. (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)
