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) and the scarers scaring (2) and those who recite the Remembrance (3) Verily your Ilah (God) is indeed One (i.e. Allah); (4) Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all that is between them, and Lord of the sun's risings. (5) Verily! We have adorned the near heaven with the stars (for beauty). (6) And to protect it from every rebellious devil. (7) They cannot listen to the exalted assembly, and they are darted at from every side. (8) and are repelled. Theirs is an unceasing chastisement. (9) But if anyone does succeed in snatching a glimpse [of such knowledge], he shall be 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) No, you marvel, while they scoff. (12) and when they are admonished, they pay no heed; (13) And seek to scoff when they behold a portent. (14) saying, "This is plain sorcery!" (15) They say, "Shall we be brought to life again after we die and turn into dust and bones? (16) And also our forefathers? (17) Say (O Muhammad): Ye, in truth; and ye will be brought low. (18) So that is just a single jolt, thereupon they will begin staring. (19) They will say: "Woe to us! This is the Day of Recompense!" (20) This is the Day of Separation, which ye used to deny. (21)
