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
By those [angels] who range themselves in close ranks (1) and restraining [from evil] by a call to restraint, (2) and by the reciters of the Reminder: (3) Indeed, your God is One, (4) He is the Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, the Lord of the Eastern regions. (5) Lo! We have adorned the lowest heaven with an ornament, the planets; (6) And have placed therein a guard against any satan froward. (7) They cannot listen to the speech of those on higher elevations and they are targeted from every side. (8) With a driving fusillade, and theirs shall be a torment perpetual; (9) Except such as snatch away something by stealth, and they are pursued by a flaming fire, of piercing brightness. (10) Then ask them whether they are stronger in creation or those (others) whom We have created. Surely We created them of firm clay. (11) Nay, thou marvellest; and they scoff (12) And, when they are admonished, pay no heed,- (13) and when they see a miracle, they mock (14) And they say: Lo! this is mere magic; (15) When we have become dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then verily be raised? (16) And our fathers too?" (17) Say (O Muhammad): Ye, in truth; and ye will be brought low. (18) There will only be a single jerk, and they will gape, (19) And will say, “O our misfortune!” It will be said to them, “This is the Day of Justice.” (20) This is the Day of Separation, which ye used to deny. (21)
