99 verses, revealed in Mecca after Joseph (Yousuf) before Animals (Al-An 'aam)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ ALIF LAM RA. These are the verses of the Book and the perspicuous oration. (1) The disbelievers will ardently wish that if only they had been Muslims! (At the time of death / in their graves / on the Day of Resurrection.) (2) Let them eat and enjoy life, and let (false) hope beguile them. They will come to know! (3) And We have not destroyed a town but there was therefor a decree known. (4) No nation can outstrip its term nor can they lag behind. (5) They say, "You to whom the Reminder [the Quran] has been sent down, you are surely possessed. (6) Why do you not bring to us the angels if you are of the truthful ones? (7) We do not send angels except with the truth. Then they shall have no respite. (8) We have, without doubt, sent down the Message; and We will assuredly guard it (from corruption). (9) We sent Messengers to the ancient people who lived before you. (10) And not an apostle came unto them but at him they were wont to mock. (11) This is how We make the mocking* enter the hearts of the guilty. (* The acts of disbelief.) (12) They believe not therein, and already the example of the ancients hath gone forth. (13) And if We opened upon them a door of the heaven, and they passed the day mounting thereto. (14) They will say all the same: "Our eyes were dazed (and clouded over). We were a people ensorcelled." (15)
