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
I swear by those who draw themselves out in ranks (1) And by oath of those who herd with a stern warning. (2) and conveying [to all the world] a reminder: (3) surely, your God is One, (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth and that between them and Lord of the sunrises. (5) We have adorned the lower heaven with the adornment of the stars (6) And as protection against every rebellious devil (7) [so that] they [who seek to learn the unknowable] should not be able to overhear the host on high, but shall be repelled from all sides, (8) Repelled; and for them is a constant punishment, (9) Except such as snatch away something by stealing and they are pursued by a flaming fire of piercing brightness. (10) So, ask those who deny the truth if it was harder to create them than all the other things We have created? We created them from sticky clay. (11) But you wonder, while they mock, (12) And when they are reminded, they mind not, (13) And when they behold a sign, they turn to scoffing. (14) And they say: Lo! this is mere magic; (15) “When we are dead and have turned into dust and bones, will we certainly be raised again?” (16) What, and our fathers, the ancients?' (17) Say: 'Yes, but worthless' (18) There is but one Shout, and lo! they behold, (19) and they will say: 'Woe for 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)
