182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By the aligners (angels) aligning. (1) and restraining [from evil] by a call to restraint, (2) and those who recite the Remembrance (3) Verily, verily, your Allah is one!- (4) The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, and Lord of the easts. (5) We have indeed decked the lower heaven with beauty (in) the stars,- (6) With security from every froward devil. (7) So that they are not able to listen to the angels of higher (echelons), and are pelted from all sides (8) Outcast, and theirs is a perpetual torment; (9) Except such as snatch away something by stealth, and they are pursued by a flaming fire, of piercing brightness. (10) Therefore ask them (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him), “Are they a stronger creation, or are other things of our creation, (the angels, the heavens etc.)?” We have indeed created them from sticky clay. (11) No wonder you are surprised as they laugh with scorn. (12) When they are reminded, they do not remember. (13) and when they see a miracle, they mock (14) And say, "This is not but obvious magic. (15) When we have died and become dust and bones, are we indeed to be resurrected? (16) And our forefathers [as well]?" (17) You say: "Yes; and you will be lowly made." (18) There will be a single stern rebuff and lo, they will be observing with their own eyes (all that they had been warned against). (19) They will say, "Woe to us! This is the Day of Reckoning." (20) “This is the Day of Judgement, which you used to deny!” (21)
