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
I CALL TO witness those who stand arrayed in rows, (1) by those who reprove severely, (2) Then those who recite, being mindful, (3) Verily your God is One. (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them and the Lord of the sun’s rising points. (5) Verily! We have adorned the near heaven with the stars (for beauty). (6) and have made them secure against every rebellious, satanic force, (7) They cannot listen to the higher group (angels) for they are pelted from every side. (8) and driven away to suffer the necessary torment. (9) Some of them who stealthily steal words from the heavens are pursued by a glistening flame. (10) Then inquire of them, [O Muhammad], "Are they a stronger [or more difficult] creation or those [others] We have created?" Indeed, We created men from sticky clay. (11) Truly dost thou marvel, while they ridicule, (12) And when they are warned they pay no heed. (13) And when they behold a sign, they turn to scoffing. (14) And they say: this Qur'an is naught but magic manifest. (15) What, when we are dead and become dust and bones, shall we indeed be raised up? (16) And our fathers too?" (17) Say, "You will certainly be brought back to life in disgrace". (18) It will be but one Shout, then see, they are watching (19) They will say: "Woe to us! This is the Day of Recompense!" (20) (A voice will say,) "This is the Day of Sorting Out, whose truth ye (once) denied!" (21)
