182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By the angels ranged in ranks. (1) and restraining [from evil] by a call to restraint, (2) And those who read (the Word) for a reminder, (3) Verily your God is One. (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth and everything between them; Lord of the Easts. (5) We have adorned the lower heaven with the adornment of the stars (6) and guarded it against all rebellious devils: (7) (So) they should not strain their ears in the direction of the Exalted Assembly but be cast away from every side, (8) They are rejected and theirs is an everlasting punishment; (9) Except one who snatches [some words] by theft, but they are pursued by a burning flame, piercing [in brightness]. (10) So ask them if they are more difficult to create, or the rest We have created? Indeed (man) We created from fermented clay. (11) You marvel (at the wondrous creations of Allah) and they scoff at it, (12) They pay no attention when they are reminded (13) And, when they see a Sign, turn it to mockery, (14) it and say, "It is only plain magic". (15) "When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we (then) verily be resurrected? (16) Or our fathers of yore? (17) Say (O Muhammad): Ye, in truth; and ye will be brought low. (18) There is but one Shout, and lo! they behold, (19) And say: Ah, woe for us! This is the Day of Judgment. (20) [It will be said], "This is the Day of Judgement which you have been denying." (21)
