The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
I swear by (the angels) who stand in ranks, (1) By the angels driving away. (2) and those who recite the Exhortation; (3) Verily, verily, your Allah is one!- (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is in-between the twain, and Lord of the easts. (5) Verily! We have adorned the near heaven with the stars (for beauty). (6) And have placed therein a guard against any satan froward. (7) they listen not to the High Council, for they are pelted from every side, (8) Outcast, and theirs is a perpetual torment; (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 wonder you are surprised as they laugh with scorn. (12) And they do not understand, when explained to. (13) and whenever they see some sign, they ridicule it, (14) saying, "This is plain sorcery!" (15) When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then, forsooth, be raised (again)? (16) And also our forefathers? (17) Say, "You will certainly be brought back to life in disgrace". (18) There will be but a single blast and then their eyes will open. (19) and will say: "Oh, woe unto us! This is the Day of Judgment!" (20) [And they will be told:] "This is the Day of Distinction [between the true and the false - the Day] which you were wont to call a lie!" (21)
