The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
CONSIDER these [messages] ranged in serried ranks, (1) And those who drive [the clouds] (2) and those who recite the Exhortation; (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) Surely We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment, the stars, (6) and have made them secure against every rebellious, satanic force, (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) But if anyone does succeed in snatching a glimpse [of such knowledge], he shall be pursued by a piercing flame. (10) So ask them for a pronouncement -- Are they stronger in constitution, or those We created? We created them of clinging clay. (11) No, you marvel, while they scoff. (12) And when they are warned they pay no heed. (13) And when they see a sign they incite one another to scoff, (14) And they say: this Qur'an is naught but magic manifest. (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 (O Muhammad): Ye, in truth; and ye will be brought low. (18) It shall be but one shout, lo! they shall be staring. (19) And say: Ah, woe for us! This is the Day of Judgment. (20) (A voice will say,) "This is the Day of Sorting Out, whose truth ye (once) denied!" (21)
