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 those [angels] who range themselves in close ranks (1) By those (angels) who drive the clouds in a good way. (2) By those (angels) who bring the Book and the Quran from Allah to mankind [Tafsir Ibn Kathir]. (3) Verily your Ilah (God) is indeed One (i.e. Allah); (4) He is the Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, the Lord of the Eastern regions. (5) He decked the nearest heavens with ornaments of stars, (6) And as protection against every rebellious devil (7) So that they are not able to listen to the angels of higher (echelons), and are pelted from all sides (8) driven away, and will suffer eternal punishment. (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) (Muhammad), you will be surprised that they still mock (God's revelations). (12) And when they are reminded, they remember not. (13) And when they see a sign, they ridicule (14) and they say, 'This is nothing but manifest sorcery. (15) "What! When we have died and become dust and bones, will we be brought back to life again, (16) And so also shall our forefathers of yore be raised to life?” (17) Say (O Muhammad): Ye, in truth; and ye will be brought low. (18) For it is only a single scaring, then behold, they are watching (19) And say: Ah, woe for us! This is the Day of Judgment. (20) [They will be told], "This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny." (21)
