The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
I CALL TO witness those who stand arrayed in rows, (1) And so are strong in repelling (evil), (2) Then those who recite, being mindful, (3) Verily your God is One, (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them and the Lord of the sun’s rising points. (5) We have decked the lower heavens with stars (6) And as protection against every rebellious devil (7) [so that] they [who seek to learn the unknowable] should not be able to overhear the host on high, but shall be repelled from all sides, (8) Outcast, and theirs is a constant (or painful) torment. (9) except such as snatches a fragment, and he is pursued by a piercing 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) (Muhammad), you will be surprised that they still mock (God's revelations). (12) And when they are reminded, they remember not. (13) And when they see a sign they incite one another to scoff, (14) and say: “This is nothing but plain sorcery. (15) Is it ever possible that after we die and are reduced to dust and (a skeleton of) bones, we will be raised to life? (16) along with our forefathers?" (17) Say thou: "Yea, and ye shall then be humiliated (on account of your evil)." (18) There will be but a single blast and then their eyes will open. (19) And say: Ah, woe for us! This is the Day of Judgment. (20) (It will be said): "This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny." (21)
