182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
By those who range themselves in rows; (1) By those (angels) who drive the clouds in a good way. (2) And thus proclaim the Message (of Allah)! (3) Indeed, your God is One, (4) the Lord of the heavens and the earth and of all that is between them; the Lord of the Easts. (5) Surely We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment, the stars, (6) (For beauty) and for guard against all obstinate rebellious evil spirits, (7) So that they are not able to listen to the angels of higher (echelons), and are pelted from all sides (8) Repulsed, for they are under a perpetual penalty, (9) Except him who snatcheth away a word by stealth, and him then pursueth a glowing flame. (10) So, ask those who deny the truth if it was harder to create them than all the other things We have created? We created them from sticky clay. (11) Nay! you wonder while they mock, (12) And when they are reminded, they mind not, (13) And, when they see a Sign, turn it to mockery, (14) And say, "This is nothing but evident sorcery! (15) Why - after we have died and become mere dust and bones, shall we, forsooth, be raised from the dead? (16) What, and our forefathers, the ancients' (17) Say (O Muhammad SAW): "Yes, and you shall then be humiliated." (18) The Day of Judgment will come within a single roar and they will remain gazing at it. (19) They will say, "Woe to us! This is the Day of Reckoning." (20) (A voice will say,) "This is the Day of Sorting Out, whose truth ye (once) denied!" (21)
