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. Those are the signs of the Book and of a manifest Koran. (1) Perchance the unbelievers will wish that they had surrendered: (2) Leave them to eat and enjoy, and let them be preoccupied with (false) hope. They will come to know! (3) We never destroyed a village whose term had not already been decreed. (4) No people can hasten on their doom nor can they postpone (it). (5) They say: 'You to whom the Remembrance is sent down, you are indeed mad. (6) Why do you not bring to us the angels if you are of the truthful ones? (7) [Yet] We never send down angels otherwise than in accordance with the [demands of] truth; and [were the angels to appear now,] lo! they [who reject this divine writ] would have no further respite! (8) It is We who sent down the Koran, and We watch over it. (9) And assuredly We have sent apostles before thee among the sects of the ancients. (10) And no messenger would come to them except that they ridiculed him. (11) Thus do We let it (polytheism and disbelief) enter into the hearts of the Mujrimun [criminals, polytheists, pagans, etc. (because of their mockery at the Messengers)]. (12) That they should not believe in the (Message); but the ways of the ancients have passed away. (13) Had We opened a door for them in the sky through which they could easily pass, (14) They will say all the same: "Our eyes were dazed (and clouded over). We were a people ensorcelled." (15)
