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 the aligners (angels) aligning. (1) Then those who drive away with reproof, (2) And those who recite the message, (3) Verily, verily, your Allah is one!- (4) The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, and Lord of the easts. (5) We have adorned the lower heaven with the adornment of the planets, (6) (For beauty) and for guard against all obstinate rebellious evil spirits, (7) The devils cannot hear those high above. They would be struck from all sides (8) driven away, and will suffer eternal punishment. (9) Except one who sometimes steals a part, so a blazing flame goes after him. (10) Therefore ask them (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him), “Are they a stronger creation, or are other things of our creation, (the angels, the heavens etc.)?” We have indeed created them from sticky clay. (11) Truly dost thou marvel, while they ridicule, (12) When they are reminded, they do not remember. (13) and whenever they see some sign, they ridicule it, (14) And they say: this Qur'an is naught but magic manifest. (15) When we have become dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then verily be raised? (16) What, and our fathers, the ancients?' (17) Say thou: "Yea, and ye shall then be humiliated (on account of your evil)." (18) It will be a single Zajrah [shout (i.e. the second blowing of the Trumpet)], and behold, they will be staring! (19) And they shall say: O woe to us! this is the day of requital. (20) (It will be said): "This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny." (21)
