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 those who drive away (the wicked) with reproof (2) and those who recite the Remembrance (3) Lo! thy Lord is surely One; (4) The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, and Lord of the easts. (5) Behold, We have adorned the skies nearest to the earth with the beauty of stars, (6) a protection against every rebel satan; (7) They cannot listen to the exalted assembly and they are thrown at from every side, (8) cast out [from all grace,] with lasting suffering in store for them [in the life to come]; (9) But if anyone does succeed in snatching a glimpse [of such knowledge], he shall be pursued by a piercing flame. (10) So ask them for a pronouncement -- Are they stronger in constitution, or those We created? We created them of clinging clay. (11) No, you marvel, while they scoff. (12) And when they are reminded, they mind not, (13) And, when they see a Sign, turn it to mockery, (14) and say: 'This is nothing but clear sorcery' (15) "What! When we have died and become dust and bones, will we be brought back to life again, (16) and perhaps also our forebears of old?" (17) You say: "Yes; and you will be lowly made." (18) There will only be a single jerk, and they will gape, (19) They will say, "Woe to us! This is the Day of Reckoning." (20) This is the Day of Separation, which ye used to deny. (21)
