182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
By those who range themselves in ranks, (1) By the angels driving away. (2) and those who recite Our revelations, (3) surely your God is One, (4) Lord of the heavens and the earth and that between them and Lord of the sunrises. (5) Behold, We have adorned the skies nearest to the earth with the beauty of stars, (6) and to preserve against every rebel Satan; (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 perpetual torment; (9) Except such as snatch away something by stealing and they are pursued by a flaming fire of piercing brightness. (10) Then inquire of them, [O Muhammad], "Are they a stronger [or more difficult] creation or those [others] We have created?" Indeed, We created men from sticky clay. (11) Nay! you wonder while they mock, (12) And they do not understand, when explained to. (13) When they see a sign, they laugh at it, (14) And say, "This is nothing but evident sorcery! (15) They say, "Shall we be brought to life again after we die and turn into dust and bones? (16) Will our forefathers also be brought to life again?" (17) Say, "Yes, and you will be [rendered] contemptible." (18) It will be but one Shout, then see, they are watching (19) And they shall say: O woe to us! this is the day of requital. (20) This is the Day of Decision which you belied. (21)
