In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
By those (angels) ranged in ranks (or rows). (1) And so are strong in repelling (evil), (2) and conveying [to all the world] a reminder: (3) Verily your God is One. (4) The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them, and the Lord of the Easts. (5) Behold, We have adorned the skies nearest to the earth with the beauty of stars, (6) And as protection against every rebellious devil (7) (So) they should not strain their ears in the direction of the Exalted Assembly but be cast away from every side, (8) and driven away to suffer the necessary torment. (9) except such as snatches a fragment, and he is 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) Rather you are surprised, whereas they keep mocking. (12) And heed not when they are reminded, (13) and when they become aware of a [divine] message, they turn it to ridicule (14) it and say, "It is only plain magic".

(17) Tell them: “Yes; and you are utterly helpless (against Allah).” (18) For it is only a single scaring, then behold, they are watching (19) They will say: "Woe to us! This is the Day of Recompense!" (20) [It will be said], "This is the Day of Judgement which you have been denying." (21)
