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) by those who reprove severely, (2) And by oath of the groups that read the Qur’an. (3) Verily, verily, your Allah is one!- (4) Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all between them, and Lord of every point at the rising of the sun! (5) We have adorned the lowest heaven with the beauty of the planets; (6) With security from every froward 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) and are repelled. Theirs is an unceasing chastisement. (9) Except those who eavesdrop and are pursued by a shooting flame. (10) (Muhammad), ask them, "Have they (people) been created stronger than what We have created?" We have created them from moist clay. (11) But you wonder, while they mock, (12) and, when reminded, 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) What, when we are dead and become dust and bones, shall we indeed be raised up? (16) along with our forefathers?" (17) You say: "Yes; and you will be lowly made." (18) There will be but a single blast and then their eyes will open. (19) And they shall say: O woe to us! this is the day of requital. (20) (A voice will say,) "This is the Day of Sorting Out, whose truth ye (once) denied!" (21)
