182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
By those [angels] lined up in rows (1) and restraining [from evil] by a call to restraint, (2) And those who read (the Word) for a reminder, (3) Indeed your God is surely only 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 stars (6) And (there is) a safeguard against every rebellious Shaitan. (7) (So) they should not strain their ears in the direction of the Exalted Assembly but be cast away from every side, (8) Outcast, and theirs is a constant (or painful) torment. (9) Save him who snatcheth a fragment, and there pursueth him a piercing flame. (10) Just ask their opinion: are they the more difficult to create, or the (other) beings We have created? Them have We created out of a sticky clay! (11) No, you marvel, while they scoff. (12) and when they are admonished, they pay no heed; (13) and if they see any Sign, they laugh it away (14) and they say, 'This is nothing but manifest sorcery. (15) “When we are dead and have turned into dust and bones, will we certainly be raised again?” (16) What, and our forefathers, the ancients' (17) Tell them: “Yes; and you are utterly helpless (against Allah).” (18) for that [resurrection which they deride] will be [upon them of a sudden, as if it were] but a single accusing cry - and then, lo! they will begin to see [the truth] (19) And say: "Ah woe! This is the Day of Reckoning." (20) This is the Day of Separation, which ye used to deny. (21)
