وَكُنتُمْ أَزْوَاجًا ثَلَاثَةً (7) And ye shall be sorted out into three classes.

وَلَقَدْ عَلِمْتُمُ النَّشْأَةَ الْأُولَىٰ فَلَوْلَا تَذَكَّرُونَ (62) And ye certainly know already the first form of creation: why then do ye not celebrate His praises?

أَفَبِهَٰذَا الْحَدِيثِ أَنتُم مُّدْهِنُونَ (81) Is it such a Message that ye would hold in light esteem?

فَلَوْلَا إِذَا بَلَغَتِ الْحُلْقُومَ (83) Then why do ye not (intervene) when (the soul of the dying man) reaches the throat,-
وَأَنتُمْ حِينَئِذٍ تَنظُرُونَ (84) And ye the while (sit) looking on,-
وَنَحْنُ أَقْرَبُ إِلَيْهِ مِنكُمْ وَلَٰكِن لَّا تُبْصِرُونَ (85) But We are nearer to him than ye, and yet see not,-
فَلَوْلَا إِن كُنتُمْ غَيْرَ مَدِينِينَ (86) Then why do ye not,- If you are exempt from (future) account,-
تَرْجِعُونَهَا إِن كُنتُمْ صَادِقِينَ (87) Call back the soul, if ye are true (in the claim of independence)?
فَأَمَّا إِن كَانَ مِنَ الْمُقَرَّبِينَ (88) Thus, then, if he be of those Nearest to Allah,
