In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
By those who set the ranks in battle order (1) And those who drive away (the wicked) with reproof (2) and by the reciters of the Reminder: (3) surely your God is One, (4) the Lord of the heavens and the earth and of whatever lies between the two, the Lord of the Easts. (5) Surely We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment, the stars, (6) With security from every froward devil. (7) (So) they should not strain their ears in the direction of the Exalted Assembly but be cast away from every side, (8) and are repelled. Theirs is an unceasing chastisement. (9) Except him who snatches off but once, then there follows him a brightly shining flame. (10) So ask them (that is, human beings): “Were they harder to create than the objects We created?” We created them from sticky clay. (11) But you wonder, while they mock, (12) And when they are admonished, they receive not admonition. (13) And when they see a sign, they ridicule (14) and say: “This is nothing but plain sorcery. (15) What! when we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then certainly be raised, (16) What, and our forefathers, the ancients' (17) Say: 'Yes, but worthless' (18) For it is only a single scaring, then behold, they are watching (19) They will say, "O woe to us! This is the Day of Recompense." (20) 'This is the Day of Decision, even that you cried lies to. (21)
