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 Dispenser of Grace
By those (angels) ranged in ranks (or rows). (1) by those who drive away the devil (to protect Our revelation), (2) Then those who recite, being mindful, (3) Verily, most 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) With security from every froward devil. (7) They cannot listen to the exalted assembly, and they are darted at from every side. (8) and are repelled. Theirs is an unceasing chastisement. (9) Some of them who stealthily steal words from the heavens are pursued by a glistening 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) You marvel (at the wondrous creations of Allah) and they scoff at it, (12) When they are reminded, they do not remember. (13) When they see a sign, they laugh at it, (14) And they say: Lo! this is mere magic; (15) They say, "Shall we be brought to life again after we die and turn into dust and bones? (16) And so also shall our forefathers of yore be raised to life?” (17) Say: 'Yes, but worthless' (18) It will be but one Shout, then see, they are watching (19) They will say, "O woe to us! This is the Day of Recompense." (20) [And they will be told:] "This is the Day of Distinction [between the true and the false - the Day] which you were wont to call a lie!" (21)
