In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
By the angels ranged in ranks. (1) And those who restrain by reprimanding, (2) And those who recite the message, (3) Lo! thy Lord is surely One; (4) the Lord of the heavens and the earth and of all that is between them; the Lord of the Easts. (5) We have adorned the lower heaven with the adornment of the planets, (6) to protect them from the rebellious satan. (7) They cannot listen to the speech of those on higher elevations and they are targeted from every side. (8) With a driving fusillade, and theirs shall be a torment perpetual; (9) but if anyone does succeed in snatching a glimpse [of such knowledge,] he is [henceforth] pursued by a piercing flame. (10) So ask them, are they stronger in constitution, or those whom We have created. We have created them of sticky clay. (11) Rather you are surprised, whereas they keep mocking. (12) And when they are warned they pay no heed. (13) When they are shown a sign, they scoff at it (14) And they say: This is nothing but clear magic: (15) When we are dead and turned to dust and bones, how can we be raised again, (16) What, and our fathers, the ancients?' (17) Tell them: “Yes; and you are utterly helpless (against Allah).” (18) The Day of Judgment will come within a single roar and they will remain gazing at it. (19) And say: Ah, woe for us! This is the Day of Judgment. (20) 'This is the Day of Decision, even that you cried lies to. (21)
