165 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Hijjr Valley (Al-Hijjr) before The Arrangers (Al-Saaffaat)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Praise be to Allah, Who hath created the heavens and the earth, and hath appointed darkness and light. Yet those who disbelieve ascribe rivals unto their Lord. (1) He it is Who has created you out of clay, and then decreed a term (of life), and has also appointed another term, a term determined with Him. Yet you are in doubt! (2) He is Allah in the heavens and the earth; He knoweth your secret and your publishment, and He knoweth that which ye earn. (3) Yet every time a sign comes to them from the signs of their Lord, they turn away from it. (4) They have refused the Truth (Muhammad's message) that has come to them but they will soon learn the consequences of their mocking. (5) Have they not seen how many generations We destroyed before them? We established them on the earth more firmly than you, and We sent the clouds over them, pouring down abundant rain; and made the rivers flow at their feet. Yet We destroyed them for their sins, and raised up other generations after them. (6) (O Messenger!) Had We sent down to you a book incribed on parchment, and had they even touched it with their own hands, the unbelievers would still have said: 'This is nothing but plain magic.' (7) 'Why has an angel not been sent down on him?' they say; yet had We sent down an angel, the matter would have been determined, and then no respite would be given them. (8) And if We had made him angel, We would certainly have made him a man, and We would certainly have made confused to them what they make confused. (9) And certainly apostles before you were mocked at, but that which they mocked at encompassed the scoffers among them. (10)
