The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
By the rangers ranging (1) and restraining [from evil] by a call to restraint, (2) And those who recite the message, (3) Indeed your God is surely only One. (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth and everything between them; Lord of the Easts. (5) We have indeed adorned the lowest heaven with stars as ornaments. (6) and guarded it against all rebellious devils: (7) They cannot listen to the speech of those on higher elevations and they are targeted from every side. (8) Outcast, and theirs is a perpetual torment; (9) Save him who snatcheth a fragment, and there pursueth him a piercing flame. (10) So ask them if they are more difficult to create, or the rest We have created? Indeed (man) We created from fermented clay. (11) No wonder you are surprised as they laugh with scorn. (12) and when they are admonished, they pay no heed; (13) and, when they see a sign, would scoff; (14) it and say, "It is only plain magic". (15) Why - after we have died and become mere dust and bones, shall we, forsooth, be raised from the dead? (16) What, and our fathers, the ancients?' (17) Say: Aye! and you shall be abject. (18) for that [resurrection which they deride] will be [upon them of a sudden, as if it were] but a single accusing cry - and then, lo! they will begin to see [the truth] (19) They will say: "Woe to us! This is the Day of Recompense!" (20) (A voice will say,) "This is the Day of Sorting Out, whose truth ye (once) denied!" (21)
