Revealed at Mecca

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

1. Ha. Mim.
2. The revelation of the Scripture is from Allah, the Mighty, the Wise.
3. Lo! in the heavens and the earth are portents for believers.
4. And in your creation, and all the beasts that He scattereth in the earth, are portents for a folk whose faith is sure.
5. And the difference of night and day and the provision that Allah sendeth down from the sky and thereby quick3eneth the earth after her death, and the ordering of the winds, are portents for a people who have sense.
6. These are the portents of Allah which We recite unto thee (Muhammad) with truth. Then in what fact, after Allah and His portents, will they believe?
7. Woe unto each sinful liar,
8. Who heareth the revelations of Allah received unto him, and then continueth in pride as though he heard them not. Give him tidings of a painful doom.
9. And when he knoweth aught of Our revelations he maketh it a jest. For such there is a shameful doom.
10. Beyond them there is hell, and that which they have earned will naught avail them, nor those whom they have chosen for protecting friends beside Allah. Theirs will be an awful doom.
