In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
By those who range themselves in rows; (1) and those who drive away [the wicked] with reproof (2) and those who recite the Remembrance (3) Verily your Ilah (God) is indeed One (i.e. Allah); (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth and that between them and Lord of the sunrises. (5) We have adorned the lower heaven with the adornment of the stars (6) And to protect it from every rebellious devil. (7) They cannot listen to the higher group (angels) for they are pelted from every side. (8) With a driving fusillade, and theirs shall be a torment perpetual; (9) but if anyone does succeed in snatching a glimpse [of such knowledge,] he is [henceforth] pursued by a piercing flame. (10) Then inquire of them, [O Muhammad], "Are they a stronger [or more difficult] creation or those [others] We have created?" Indeed, We created men from sticky clay. (11) No, you marvel, while they scoff. (12) They pay no attention when they are reminded (13) And seek to scoff when they behold a portent. (14) and say: “This is nothing but plain sorcery. (15) "What! when we die, and become dust and bones, shall we (then) be raised up (again) (16) and perhaps also our forebears of old?" (17) Say, "Yes, and you will be [rendered] contemptible." (18) Then it will be a single (compelling) cry; and behold, they will begin to see! (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 used to deny." (21)
