182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
By the angels ranged in ranks. (1) By the angels driving away. (2) And those who recite the Reminder, (3) surely your God is One, (4) The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them, and the Lord of the Easts. (5) We have indeed decked the lower heaven with beauty (in) the stars,- (6) And to guard against every rebellious devil. (7) they listen not to the High Council, for they are pelted from every side, (8) and are repelled. Theirs is an unceasing chastisement. (9) But if anyone does succeed in snatching a glimpse [of such knowledge], he shall be 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) Nay! you wonder while they mock, (12) And when they are admonished, they receive not admonition. (13) When they see a sign, they laugh at it, (14) and say: "This is clearly nothing but [a mortal's] spellbinding eloquence! (15) Is it ever possible that after we die and are reduced to dust and (a skeleton of) bones, we will be raised to life? (16) And our forefathers? (17) Say thou: "Yea, and ye shall then be humiliated (on account of your evil)." (18) Then it will be a single (compelling) cry; and behold, they will begin to see! (19) They will say: "Woe to us! This is the Day of Recompense!" (20) [They will be told], "This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny." (21)
