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 the angels ranged in ranks. (1) by those who drive away the devil (to protect Our revelation), (2) and by the reciters of the Reminder: (3) surely your God is One, (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is in-between the twain, and Lord of the easts. (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 higher group (angels) for they are pelted from every side. (8) To make them flee, and for them is a never-ending punishment. (9) Except one who sometimes steals a part, so a blazing flame goes after him. (10) Then inquire of them, [O Muhammad], "Are they a stronger [or more difficult] creation or those [others] We have created?" Indeed, We created men from sticky clay. (11) Nay, but whereas thou dost marvel, they [only] scoff; (12) They pay no attention when they are reminded (13) And when they see a sign they incite one another to scoff, (14) And they say: Lo! this is mere magic; (15) "What! when we die, and become dust and bones, shall we (then) be raised up (again) (16) And so also shall our forefathers of yore be raised to life?” (17) Proclaim, “Yes, and with disgrace.” (18) for that [resurrection which they deride] will be [upon them of a sudden, as if it were] but a single accusing cry - and then, lo! they will begin to see [the truth] (19) and will say: "Oh, woe unto us! This is the Day of Judgment!" (20) This is the Day of Judgment in which you disbelieved. (21)
