The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
By those who set the ranks in battle order (1) by those who drive away the devil (to protect Our revelation), (2) And by oath of the groups that read the Qur’an. (3) surely your God is One, (4) The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them, and the Lord of the Easts. (5) We have indeed decked the lower heaven with beauty (in) the stars,- (6) and to preserve against every rebel Satan; (7) so they cannot listen to the High Assembly, for they are pelted from every side. (8) With a driving fusillade, and theirs shall be a torment perpetual; (9) Except one who snatches [some words] by theft, but they are pursued by a burning flame, piercing [in brightness]. (10) So ask them (that is, human beings): “Were they harder to create than the objects We created?” We created them from sticky clay. (11) Nay, but whereas thou dost marvel, they [only] scoff; (12) And when they are reminded, they remember not. (13) When they are shown a sign, they scoff at it (14) And they say: Lo! this is mere magic; (15) When we are dead and turned to dust and bones, how can we be raised again, (16) And so also shall our forefathers of yore be raised to life?” (17) Say, "Yes indeed, and you will be brought low." (18) It will be only one shout, and at once they will be observing. (19) They will say, "Woe to us!" (They will be told), "This is the day of receiving recompense". (20) "(Yes,) this is the Day of Judgement you had called a lie." (21)
