182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
CONSIDER these [messages] ranged in serried ranks, (1) And those who drive away (the wicked) with reproof (2) and the reciters of a Remembrance, (3) Indeed your God is surely only One. (4) The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them, and the Lord of the Easts. (5) We have indeed decked the lower heaven with beauty (in) the stars,- (6) And as protection against every rebellious devil (7) [So] they may not listen to the exalted assembly [of angels] and are pelted from every side, (8) Repulsed, for they are under a perpetual penalty, (9) Some of them who stealthily steal words from the heavens are pursued by a glistening flame. (10) Then ask them (i.e. these polytheists, O Muhammad SAW): "Are they stronger as creation, or those (others like the heavens and the earth and the mountains, etc.) whom We have created?" Verily, We created them of a sticky clay. (11) Truly dost thou marvel, while they ridicule, (12) And when they are warned they pay no heed. (13) And, when they see a Sign, turn it to mockery, (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) What, and our forefathers, the ancients' (17) Say, "You will certainly be brought back to life in disgrace". (18) The Day of Judgment will come within a single roar and they will remain gazing at it. (19) And they will say: Ah! woe be unto us! this is the Day of Requital. (20) “Yes, this is the Day of Final Decision that you used to deny as a lie.” (21)
