The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
CONSIDER these [messages] ranged in serried ranks, (1) by those who reprove severely, (2) By those (angels) who bring the Book and the Quran from Allah to mankind [Tafsir Ibn Kathir]. (3) Verily your God is One. (4) Lord of the heavens and of the earth, and all that is between them, and Lord of every point of the sun's risings. (None has the right to be worshipped but Allah). (5) We have adorned the lower heaven with the adornment of the planets, (6) And (there is) a safeguard against every rebellious Shaitan. (7) They cannot listen to the Highest Chiefs for they are pelted from every side, (8) They are rejected and theirs is an everlasting punishment; (9) except such as snatches a fragment, and he is pursued by a piercing flame. (10) Ask them thou: are they stronger in structure or those others whom We have created? Verily We! We have created them of a sticky clay. (11) Nay, thou marvellest; and they scoff (12) and, when reminded, do not remember (13) and, when they see a sign, would scoff; (14) and say: “This is nothing but plain sorcery. (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) And our fathers too?" (17) Say, "Yes indeed, and you will be brought low." (18) Then it will be a single (compelling) cry; and behold, they will begin to see! (19) They will say, "Woe to us! This is the Day of Reckoning." (20) This is the Day of Judgment which ye were wont to belie. (21)
