182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
By oath of those who establish proper ranks. (1) and restraining [from evil] by a call to restraint, (2) Then those who recite, being mindful, (3) Verily your Ilah (God) is indeed One (i.e. Allah); (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth, and of what between them is Lord of the Easts. (5) We have adorned the lower heaven with the adornment of the stars (6) and to preserve against every rebel Satan; (7) They cannot listen to the higher group (angels) for they are pelted from every side. (8) To make them flee, and for them is a never-ending punishment. (9) Except one who snatches [some words] by theft, but they are pursued by a burning flame, piercing [in brightness]. (10) Just ask their opinion: are they the more difficult to create, or the (other) beings We have created? Them have We created out of a sticky clay! (11) No, you marvel, while they scoff. (12) When they are reminded, they do not remember. (13) and whenever they see some sign, they ridicule it, (14) And they say, “This is nothing but clear magic.” (15) What, when we are dead and become dust and bones, shall we indeed be raised up? (16) "And also our fathers of old?" (17) Say thou: "Yea, and ye shall then be humiliated (on account of your evil)." (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 say: "Ah woe! This is the Day of Reckoning." (20) This is the Day of Decision which you belied. (21)
