In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
CONSIDER these [messages] ranged in serried ranks, (1) and the scarers scaring (2) and those who recite the Exhortation; (3) Most surely your Allah is One: (4) He is the Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, the Lord of the Eastern regions. (5) He decked the nearest heavens with ornaments of stars, (6) And (there is) a safeguard against every rebellious Shaitan. (7) they listen not to the High Council, for they are pelted from every side, (8) Being driven off, and for them is a perpetual chastisement, (9) Except such as snatch away something by stealth, and they are pursued by a flaming fire, of piercing brightness. (10) Then ask them whether they are stronger in creation or those (others) whom We have created. Surely We created them of firm clay. (11) No, you marvel, while they scoff. (12) And, when they are admonished, pay no heed,- (13) and whenever they see some sign, they ridicule it, (14) And they say: This is nothing but clear magic: (15) When we are dead and turned to dust and bones, how can we be raised again, (16) What, and our forefathers, the ancients' (17) Say (O Muhammad SAW): "Yes, and you shall then be humiliated." (18) It will be but one Shout, then see, they are watching (19) and they will say: 'Woe for us. This is the Day of Recompense' (20) 'This is the Day of Decision, even that you cried lies to. (21)
