182 verses, revealed in Mecca after Animals (Al-An 'aam) before Luqmaan (Luqmaan)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
By those who range themselves in rows; (1) And those who drive [the clouds] (2) And by oath of the groups that read the Qur’an. (3) Lo! thy Lord is surely One; (4) the Sustainer of the heavens and the earth and of all that is between them, and the Sustainer of all the points of sunrise! (5) We have indeed adorned the lowest heaven with stars as ornaments. (6) And as protection against every rebellious devil (7) they listen not to the High Council, for they are pelted from every side, (8) Outcast, and theirs is a perpetual torment; (9) Save him who snatcheth a fragment, and there pursueth him a piercing flame. (10) Then ask them (O Muhammad): Are they stronger as a creation, or those (others) whom we have created? Lo! We created them of plastic clay. (11) You marvel (at the wondrous creations of Allah) and they scoff at it, (12) And when they are reminded, they pay no attention. (13) and when they see a miracle, they mock (14) And say, "This is not but obvious magic. (15) "When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we (then) verily be resurrected? (16) What, and our forefathers, the ancients' (17) Say, "Yes indeed, and you will be brought low." (18) So it shall only be a single cry, when lo! they shall see. (19) and they will say: 'Woe for us. This is the Day of Recompense' (20) (A voice will say,) "This is the Day of Sorting Out, whose truth ye (once) denied!" (21)
