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 oath of those who establish proper ranks. (1) And so are strong in repelling (evil), (2) And those who recite the Reminder, (3) Lo! thy Lord is surely One; (4) the Lord of the heavens and the earth and of all that is between them; the Lord of the Easts. (5) We have decked the lower heavens with stars (6) and guarded it against all rebellious devils: (7) they listen not to the High Council, for they are pelted from every side, (8) Outcast, and theirs is a perpetual torment; (9) Some of them who stealthily steal words from the heavens are pursued by a glistening flame. (10) AND NOW ask those [who deny the truth] to enlighten thee: Were they more difficult to create than all those [untold marvels] that We have created? - for, behold, them have We created out of [mere] clay commingled with water! (11) Nay, you (O Muhammad SAW) wondered (at their insolence) while they mock (at you and at the Quran). (12) and when they are admonished, they pay no heed; (13) And when they see a sign they incite one another to scoff, (14) And they say: This is nothing but clear magic: (15) When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then, forsooth, be raised (again)? (16) What, and our forefathers, the ancients' (17) Say, "Yes, and you will be [rendered] contemptible." (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) "(Yes,) this is the Day of Judgement you had called a lie." (21)
