The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
CONSIDER these [messages] ranged in serried ranks, (1) And so are strong in repelling (evil), (2) And thus proclaim the Message (of Allah)! (3) Verily your God is One, (4) the Lord of the heavens and the earth and of all that is between them; the Lord of the Easts. (5) Lo! We have adorned the lowest heaven with an ornament, the planets; (6) and have protected it from every rebellious satan. (7) They cannot listen to the exalted assembly and they are thrown at from every side, (8) And kept far away. There is perpetual punishment for them, (9) but if anyone does succeed in snatching a glimpse [of such knowledge,] he is [henceforth] pursued by a piercing flame. (10) So ask them, are they stronger in constitution, or those whom We have created. We have created them of sticky clay. (11) Nay, but whereas thou dost marvel, they [only] scoff; (12) And when they are reminded, they remember not. (13) And when they behold a sign, they turn to scoffing. (14) And say, "This is nothing but evident sorcery! (15) “When we are dead and have turned into dust and bones, will we certainly be raised again?” (16) along with our forefathers?" (17) Say: 'Yes, and in all lowliness.' (18) Then it will be a single (compelling) cry; and behold, they will begin to see! (19) and they will say: 'Woe for us. This is the Day of Recompense' (20) This is the day of the judgment which you called a lie. (21)
