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] lined up in rows (1) And by oath of those who herd with a stern warning. (2) and by the reciters of the Reminder: (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) We have adorned the lower heaven with the adornment of the stars (6) and have protected it from every rebellious satan. (7) They cannot listen to the speech of those on higher elevations and they are targeted from every side. (8) driven away, and will suffer eternal punishment. (9) Except such as snatch away something by stealth, and they are pursued by a flaming fire, of piercing brightness. (10) Then ask them whether they are stronger in creation or those (others) whom We have created. Surely We created them of firm clay. (11) No, you marvel, while they scoff. (12) And heed not when they are reminded, (13) And when they see a sign, they ridicule (14) and say: 'This is nothing but clear sorcery' (15) When we have died and become dust and bones, are we indeed to be resurrected? (16) And our fathers too?" (17) Say thou: and verily ye; shall then be despicable. (18) The Day of Judgment will come within a single roar and they will remain gazing at it. (19) And say: "Ah woe! This is the Day of Reckoning." (20) (It will be said): "This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny." (21)
