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) ranged in ranks (or rows). (1) And those who drive away (the wicked) with reproof (2) And those who read (the Word) for a reminder, (3) Indeed your God is surely only One. (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is in-between the twain, and Lord of the easts. (5) Behold, We have adorned the skies nearest to the earth with the beauty of stars, (6) and have protected it from every rebellious satan. (7) they cannot overhear the Higher Assembly for they are pelted from every side, (8) Outcast, and theirs is a constant (or painful) torment. (9) except such as snatches a fragment, and he is pursued by a piercing flame. (10) Then ask them (O Muhammad): Are they stronger as a creation, or those (others) whom we have created? Lo! We created them of plastic clay. (11) (Muhammad), you will be surprised that they still mock (God's revelations). (12) When they are reminded, they do not remember. (13) And seek to scoff when they behold a portent. (14) And they say: This is nothing but clear magic: (15) Is it ever possible that after we die and are reduced to dust and (a skeleton of) bones, we will be raised to life? (16) Or our fathers of yore? (17) Say: Aye! and you shall be abject. (18) There will be a single stern rebuff and lo, they will be observing with their own eyes (all that they had been warned against). (19) and will say: "Oh, woe unto us! This is the Day of Judgment!" (20) (It will be said): "This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny." (21)
