182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
By those who range themselves in ranks, (1) By those (angels) who drive the clouds in a good way. (2) And those who recite the Reminder, (3) Verily your God is One, (4) He is the Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, the Lord of the Eastern regions. (5) Surely We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment, the stars, (6) to protect them from the rebellious satan. (7) they listen not to the High Council, for they are pelted from every side, (8) and driven away to suffer the necessary torment. (9) But if anyone does succeed in snatching a glimpse [of such knowledge], he shall be pursued by a piercing flame. (10) Ask them thou: are they stronger in structure or those others whom We have created? Verily We! We have created them of a sticky clay. (11) Nay, but thou dost marvel when they mock (12) And when they are reminded, they mind not, (13) And, when they see a Sign, turn it to mockery, (14) and they say, 'This is nothing but manifest sorcery. (15) "What! when we die, and become dust and bones, shall we (then) be raised up (again) (16) And our forefathers [as well]?" (17) Say, "Yes, and you will be [rendered] contemptible." (18) So that is just a single jolt, thereupon they will begin staring. (19) They will say, "Ah! Woe to us! This is the Day of Judgment!" (20) [And they will be told:] "This is the Day of Distinction [between the true and the false - the Day] which you were wont to call a lie!" (21)
