It will be only one shout, and at once they will be observing.
They will say, |O woe to us! This is the Day of Recompense.
By those [angels] lined up in rows
And those who drive [the clouds]
And those who recite the message,
But you wonder, while they mock,
And when they are reminded, they remember not.
And when they see a sign, they ridicule
And say, |This is not but obvious magic.
When we have died and become dust and bones, are we indeed to be resurrected?
And our forefathers [as well]?|
Say, |Yes, and you will be [rendered] contemptible.
[They will be told], |This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny.
[The angels will be ordered], |Gather those who committed wrong, their kinds, and what they used to worship
Other than Allah , and guide them to the path of Hellfire
And stop them; indeed, they are to be questioned.
Indeed, your God is One,
Indeed, We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment of stars
And as protection against every rebellious devil
[So] they may not listen to the exalted assembly [of angels] and are pelted from every side,
Repelled; and for them is a constant punishment,
Except one who snatches [some words] by theft, but they are pursued by a burning flame, piercing [in brightness].
Then inquire of them, [O Muúammad], |Are they a stronger [or more difficult] creation or those [others] We have created?| Indeed, We created men from sticky clay.
Lord of the heavens and the earth and that between them and Lord of the sunrises.
