Why in a foreign language, while the audience are Arabs?

Man `Amila Şāliĥāan Falinafsihi Wa Man 'Asā'a Fa`alayhā Wa Mā Rabbuka Bižallāmin Lil`abīdi He who does good deeds, does it for his own soul; and he who commits evil does so at his own peril: Your Rabb is never unjust to His servants.[41.46]

No fruit comes out of its sheath, nor does a female conceive, nor she gives birth but with His knowledge.

Lā Yas'amu Al-'Insānu Min Du`ā'i Al-Khayri Wa 'In Massahu Ash-Sharru Faya'ūsun Qanūţun Man is never tired of praying for good, but when any evil befalls him, he loses hope and is in despair.[41.49]

The fact, however, is that We shall tell the disbelievers the truth of all that they had done and We shall make them taste a severe punishment.[41.50]

Qul 'Ara'aytum 'In Kāna Min `Indi Al-Lahi Thumma Kafartum Bihi Man 'Ađallu Mimman Huwa Fī Shiqāqin Ba`īdin O Prophet, ask them: Have you ever considered: if this Quran is really from Allah and you deny it, who can be more astray than you who have gone too far in defying Him?[41.52]

Is it not enough that your Rabb is a witness over everything?[41.53]
'Alā 'Innahum Fī Miryatin Min Liqā'i Rabbihim 'Alā 'Innahu Bikulli Shay'in Muĥīţun Still they are in doubt about meeting their Rabb! Yet it is He Who encompasses everything.[41.54]
