Say, â€œHave you considered those you worship instead of God? Show me which portion of the earth they have created. Or do they own a share of the heavens? Bring me a scripture prior to this one, or some trace of knowledge, if you are truthful.â€

Or do they say, â€œHe invented it himselfâ€? Say, â€œIf I invented it myself, there is nothing you can do to protect me from God. He knows well what you are engaged in. He is sufficient witness between me and you. He is the Forgiver, the Merciful.â€

Say, â€œHave you considered? What if it is from God and you disbelieve in it? A witness from the Children of Israel testified to its like, and has believed, while you turned arrogant. God does not guide the unjust people.â€

Those who disbelieve say to those who believe, â€œIf it were anything good, they would not have preceded us to it.â€ And since they were not guided by it, they will say, â€œThis is an ancient lie.â€

We have enjoined upon man kindness to his parents. His mother carried him with difficulty, and delivered him with difficulty. His bearing and weaning takes thirty months. Until, when he has attained his maturity, and has reached forty years, he says, â€œLord, enable me to appreciate the blessings You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and to act with righteousness, pleasing You. And improve my children for me. I have sincerely repented to You, and I am of those who have surrendered.â€

As for him who says to his parents, â€œEnough of you! Are you promising me that I will be raised up, when generations have passed away before me?â€ While they cry for Godâ€™s help, â€œWoe to you! Believe! The promise of God is true!â€ But he says, â€œThese are nothing but tales of the ancients.â€

On the Day when the faithless will be paraded before the Fire: â€œYou have squandered your good in your worldly life, and you took pleasure in them. So today you are being repaid with the torment of shame, because of your unjust arrogance on earth, and because you used to sin.â€

We had empowered them in the same way as We empowered you; and We gave them the hearing, and the sight, and the minds. But neither their hearing, nor their sight, nor their minds availed them in any way. That is because they disregarded the revelations of God; and so they became surrounded by what they used to ridicule.

Recall when We dispatched towards you a number of jinn, to listen to the Quran. When they came in its presence, they said, â€œPay attention!â€ Then, when it was concluded, they rushed to their people, warning them.
On the Day when those who disbelieved are presented to the Fire: â€œIs this not real?â€ They will say, â€œYes, indeed, by our Lord.â€ He will say, â€œThen taste the suffering for having disbelieved.â€
So be patient, as the messengers with resolve were patient, and do not be hasty regarding them. On the Day when they witness what they are promised, it will seem as if they had lasted only for an hour of a day. A proclamation: Will any be destroyed except the sinful people?
