The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
CONSIDER these [messages] ranged in serried ranks, (1) and the drivers driving, (2) and those who recite the Exhortation; (3) surely your God is One, (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth and that between them and Lord of the sunrises. (5) Verily We! We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment: the stars. (6) to protect them from the rebellious satan. (7) So that they are not able to listen to the angels of higher (echelons), and are pelted from all sides (8) Repulsed, for they are under a perpetual penalty, (9) Except him who snatcheth away a word by stealth, and him then pursueth a glowing flame. (10) (Muhammad), ask them, "Have they (people) been created stronger than what We have created?" We have created them from moist clay. (11) You marvel (at the wondrous creations of Allah) and they scoff at it, (12) And when they are reminded, they pay no attention. (13) And when they see an Ayah (a sign, a proof, or an evidence) from Allah, they mock at it. (14) And they say, “This is nothing but clear magic.” (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, "Yes indeed, and you will be brought low." (18) It will be but one Shout, then see, they are watching (19) They will say: "Woe to us! This is the Day of Recompense!" (20) “Yes, this is the Day of Final Decision that you used to deny as a lie.” (21)
