182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
By those who set the ranks in battle order (1) by those who drive away the devil (to protect Our revelation), (2) And thus proclaim the Message (of Allah)! (3) Verily your Ilah (God) is indeed One (i.e. Allah); (4) Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all between them, and Lord of every point at the rising of the sun! (5) Indeed, We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment of stars (6) And as protection against every rebellious devil (7) [So] they may not listen to the exalted assembly [of angels] and are pelted from every side, (8) Outcast, and theirs is a perpetual torment; (9) Except one who snatches [some words] by theft, but they are pursued by a burning flame, piercing [in brightness]. (10) Then ask them (i.e. these polytheists, O Muhammad SAW): "Are they stronger as creation, or those (others like the heavens and the earth and the mountains, etc.) whom We have created?" Verily, We created them of a sticky clay. (11) But you wonder, while they mock, (12) They pay no attention when they are reminded (13) and, when they see a sign, would scoff; (14) and say: “This is nothing but plain sorcery. (15) They say, "Shall we be brought to life again after we die and turn into dust and bones? (16) Or our fathers of yore? (17) Tell them: “Yes; and you are utterly helpless (against Allah).” (18) There will be but a single blast and then their eyes will open. (19) They will say, "Woe to us! This is the Day of Reckoning." (20) This is the Day of Decision which you belied. (21)
