The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
CONSIDER these [messages] ranged in serried ranks, (1) And those who drive [the clouds] (2) Then those who recite, being mindful, (3) surely your God is One, (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth, and of what between them is Lord of the Easts. (5) We have indeed adorned the lowest heaven with stars as ornaments. (6) And to protect it from every rebellious devil. (7) So that they are not able to listen to the angels of higher (echelons), and are pelted from all sides (8) and driven away to suffer the necessary torment. (9) Except him who snatcheth away a word by stealth, and him then pursueth a glowing flame. (10) So ask them if they are more difficult to create, or the rest We have created? Indeed (man) We created from fermented clay. (11) Nay! you wonder while they mock, (12) They pay no attention when they are reminded (13) and whenever they see some sign, they ridicule it, (14) and they say, 'This is nothing but manifest sorcery. (15) When we are dead and turned to dust and bones, how can we be raised again, (16) along with our forefathers?" (17) Say, "Yes indeed, and you 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) [It will be said], "This is the Day of Judgement which you have been denying." (21)
