182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
By oath of those who establish proper ranks. (1) And so are strong in repelling (evil), (2) and those who recite the Exhortation; (3) Verily your Ilah (God) is indeed One (i.e. Allah); (4) the Lord of the heavens and the earth and of all that is between them; the Lord of the Easts. (5) We have decked the lower heavens with stars (6) And to protect it from every rebellious devil. (7) [So] they may not listen to the exalted assembly [of angels] and are pelted from every side, (8) cast out [from all grace,] with lasting suffering in store for them [in the life to come]; (9) Except such as snatch away something by stealth, and they are pursued by a flaming fire, of piercing brightness. (10) So ask them for a pronouncement -- Are they stronger in constitution, or those We created? We created them of clinging clay. (11) But you wonder, while they mock, (12) and when they are reminded [of the truth,] they refuse to take it to heart; (13) When they are shown a sign, they scoff at it (14) And say, "This is not but obvious magic. (15) "When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we (then) verily be resurrected? (16) And our forefathers [as well]?" (17) Say (O Muhammad SAW): "Yes, and you shall then be humiliated." (18) There will be a single stern rebuff and lo, they will be observing with their own eyes (all that they had been warned against). (19) and they say, 'Woe, alas for us! This is the Day of Doom.' (20) (A voice will say,) "This is the Day of Sorting Out, whose truth ye (once) denied!" (21)
