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 Most Merciful
By oath of those who establish proper ranks. (1) and those who drive away [the wicked] with reproof (2) And those who read (the Word) for a reminder, (3) your God is One, (4) the Sustainer of the heavens and the earth and of all that is between them, and the Sustainer of all the points of sunrise! (5) We have adorned the lower heaven with the adornment of the planets, (6) With security from every froward devil. (7) They cannot listen to the speech of those on higher elevations and they are targeted from every side. (8) rejected, and theirs is an everlasting chastisement, (9) Except him who snatcheth away a word by stealth, and him then pursueth a glowing flame. (10) Just ask their opinion: are they the more difficult to create, or the (other) beings We have created? Them have We created out of a sticky clay! (11) No wonder you are surprised as they laugh with scorn. (12) When they are reminded, they do not remember. (13) And when they behold a sign, they turn to scoffing. (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) Or our fathers of yore? (17) Say (O Muhammad): Ye, in truth; and ye will be brought low. (18) It shall be but one shout, lo! they shall be staring. (19) And will say, “O our misfortune!” It will be said to them, “This is the Day of Justice.” (20) This is the Day of Decision which you belied. (21)
