182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
I CALL TO witness those who stand arrayed in rows, (1) By those (angels) who drive the clouds in a good way. (2) and those who recite the Remembrance (3) Verily your God is One, (4) the Lord of the heavens and the earth and of whatever lies between the two, the Lord of the Easts. (5) Indeed, We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment of stars (6) and to preserve against every rebel Satan; (7) they listen not to the High Council, for they are pelted from every side, (8) cast out [from all grace,] with lasting suffering in store for them [in the life to come]; (9) except such as snatches a fragment, and he is pursued by a piercing 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) Rather you are surprised, whereas they keep mocking. (12) They pay no attention when they are reminded (13) When they are shown a sign, they scoff at it (14) And they say: "This is nothing but evident magic! (15) When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then, forsooth, be raised (again)? (16) along with our forefathers?" (17) Say: Aye! and you shall be abject. (18) So that is just a single jolt, thereupon they will begin staring. (19) They will say, "Woe to us! This is the Day of Reckoning." (20) This is the Day of Decision which you belied. (21)
