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 is due to Allah, who has created the heavens and the earth and made darkness and light. Yet the unbelievers make (others) equal with their Lord. (1) It is He who created you from clay then determined a term (of life) for you, and a term (is fixed) with Him. Even then you doubt. (2) He is God of the heavens and the earth and He knows whatever you conceal, reveal, or gain. (3) And there does not come to them any communication of the communications of their Lord but they turn aside from it (4) And they denied the truth when it came unto them. But there will come unto them the tidings of that which they used to deride. (5) Why do they not consider how many generations living before them We have destroyed. We established those nations in the land with abilities far beyond those given to you. We sent down plenty of rain from the sky for them and made streams flow therein, but, then, We destroyed them for their sins and established other nations after them. (6) And had We sent down unto thee a Book written upon parchment so that they could have touched it with their hands, those who disbelieve would have said: this is naught but magic manifest. (7) They are saying, too, "Why has not an angel [visibly] been sent down unto him?" But had we sent down an angel, all would indeed have been decided, and they would have been allowed no further respite [for repentance]. (8) Were We to have made him (Our Messenger) an angel, We would have made him resemble a human being and they would have again complained that the matter was as confusing to them as it is to them now. (9) And certainly apostles before you were mocked at, but that which they mocked at encompassed the scoffers among them. (10)
