In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
I CALL TO witness those who stand arrayed in rows, (1) Then those who drive away with reproof, (2) And those who recite the Reminder, (3) Lo! thy Lord is surely One; (4) the Lord of the heavens and the earth and of whatever lies between the two, the Lord of the Easts. (5) We have adorned the lowest heaven with the beauty of the planets; (6) And to guard against every rebellious devil. (7) They cannot listen to the Highest Chiefs for they are pelted from every side, (8) and driven away to suffer the necessary torment. (9) And if any is able to snatch a fragment, he is pursued by a piercing flame. (10) So ask them for a pronouncement -- Are they stronger in constitution, or those We created? We created them of clinging clay. (11) Nay, you (O Muhammad SAW) wondered (at their insolence) while they mock (at you and at the Quran). (12) and when they are admonished, they pay no heed; (13) And when they see an Ayah (a sign, a proof, or an evidence) from Allah, they mock at it. (14) and say: “This is nothing but plain sorcery. (15) "When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we (then) verily be resurrected? (16) Or our fathers of yore? (17) Say, "You will certainly be brought back to life in disgrace". (18) for that [resurrection which they deride] will be [upon them of a sudden, as if it were] but a single accusing cry - and then, lo! they will begin to see [the truth] (19) They will say: "Woe to us! This is the Day of Recompense!" (20) 'This is the Day of Decision, even that you cried lies to. (21)
