The sending down of the book is from Allah the Mighty, the Wise.
We did not create the skies and the earth and that which is between them but in reality and for an appointed term, while those who do not believe turn away from that which they are warned.
Say, “Have you considered that which you pray to, besides Allah, show me what they have created from the earth? Or is there a partnership for them in the skies? Bring me a book (which existed) before this or a proof (based) on knowledge, if you are truthful.”
And who is more astray than one who prays to those besides Allah, who would not respond to him till the day of resurrection and who are unaware of their praying (to them).
And when human beings are gathered, they will be their enemies and they will reject (that) the (human beings) worshipped (them).
And when Our clear signs are recited to them, those who do not believe say concerning the truth when it comes to them, “This is clear magic.”
Do they say, “He has forged it?” Say, “If I have forged it (even) then you do not control for me anything from Allah, He knows best concerning that which you utter about it, He is sufficient as a Witness between me and. you, and He is the Protectively Forgiving, the Merciful.”
Say, “I am not the first of the messengers and I do not know what will be done with me or with you. I do not follow anything except that which is communicated to me and I am nothing but a clear warner.”
Say, “Do you see, if this is from Allah and you do not believe in it, while a witness from among the children of Israel has (already) borne witness over (something) similar to it and believed (in it earlier), and you consider yourselves great (then who is at loss)? Allah certainly does not guide the unjust people.”
And those who do not believe say regarding those who believe, “If the (Quran) were good they would not have preceded us in (accepting) it.” And when they do not receive guidance through it, then they say, “This is an old lie.”
And before it there was the book of Musa, a guide and a mercy; and this is a book confirming (it) in Arabic language that it may warn those who are unjust and (give) good news to the doers of good.
Those who say, “Our Fosterer is Allah,” then they are established (on it), then certainly, there will neither be any fear on them nor will they grieve.
Those are the inhabitants of the garden, they will stay in it, a reward for that which they used to do.
And We have enjoined on man, doing of good to his parents, his mother bears him with hardship and delivers him with hardship, and the bearing of him and the weaning of him takes thirty months, until when he reaches his strength (maturity) and reaches forty years, he says, “O my Fosterer! arouse me that I may be grateful for Your favour which You have bestowed on me and my parents and that I may do righteous work which pleases You, and set right for me (the affair) in (connection with) my descendants, I certainly turn to You and I am certainly of those who submit (as Muslims).”
Those are the persons from whom We accept the good deeds which they do, and We overlook their evil deeds. (They are) among the inhabitants of the garden, a true promise which they are promised.
And he who says to his parents, “Fie* on you both, do you threaten me that I will be brought out when generations have passed away before me?” And they both seek Allah’s help, “Sorrowful is your state, believe, Allah’s promise is certainly true," then he says, "These are nothing but the stories of the ancient.” *An expression of disgust generations have passed away before me?” And they both seek Allah’s help, “Sorrowful is your state, believe, Allah’s promise is certainly true," then he says, "These are nothing but the stories of the ancient.” *An expression of disgust
Those are from among the communities of the jinn and mankind which have passed away before them, on whom the word has proved true, they will certainly be of the losers.
And for all there will be grades according to that which they did, that He may pay back to them in full, (the reward of) their deeds, and they will not be dealt with unjustly.
And on that day those who did not believe will be presented before the fire (and it will be said), “You took away (your share of) good things in your life of the world and you enjoyed in it, so this day you will be rewarded with the punishment of humility because you used to consider yourselves great in the earth without having the right to do so and because you used to transgress.”
And mention (to them about) the brother of Aad (Hud), when he warned his people at Al Ahqaf (the sand hills).And indeed warners came before him and after him, (each one saying) that, “Do not serve (worship) anyone except Allah, I fear for you the punishment of the great day.”
They said, “Have you come to us to turn us away from our gods? Then bring to us that with which you threaten us, if you are of the truthful ones.”
He said, “The knowledge (thereof) is only with Allah and I convey to you only that which his communicated to me, but I see (that) you are an ignorant people.”
Then when they saw the (punishment in the form of) a cloud coming towards their valleys, they said, “This is a cloud which will give us rain.” No, it is that which you sought to be hastened on, wind in which is a painful punishment,
(it will) destroy everything by the command of its Fosterer. So they became such that nothing could be seen except their houses. Thus do We reward the criminal people.
And We had indeed established them in (a condition) in which We have not established you. And We made for them (the means of) hearing and seeing and the hearts, but their hearing and their seeing and their hearts were of no use to them in anything when they knowingly rejected Allah’s signs, and that which they used to mock at engulfed them.
And indeed We destroyed the towns which are around you, and repeated Our signs that they may turn (to Us).
Then why did those whom they had taken as gods besides Allah (for achieving) nearness (to Him), not help them? No, they disappeared from them, and that was their falsehood and that which they used to forge.
And when We turned towards you a party of the jinn seeking to hear the Quran, so when they were present before it they said, “Be silent and listen.” Then when the (recital) had finished they turned towards their people (others like them) warning (them).
They said, “O our people! we have heard a book sent down after Musa, confirming that which is before it, it guides towards the truth and towards a straight path,
O our people! respond to one who invites towards Allah and believe in Him, He will forgive you your sins and protect you from the painful punishment.
And he who does not respond to one who invites towards Allah, then he cannot defeat (Allah) in the earth and there will be no guardians for him besides Him. Those are in clear error,”
Did they not consider that Allah Who created the skies and the earth, and was not tired in creating them, is able to give life to the dead? Why not ! He certainly has power over everything.
And the day those who do not believe will be presented before the fire (and asked). “Is not (all this happening) in reality?” They will say, “Why not by our Fosterer (it is real).”He will say, “Then taste the punishment because you used to reject (it).
So be patient, as those among the messengers possessing determination were patient, and do not seek to hasten for them (the punishment). The day they will see that which they are promised, it will be as if they did not stay but for an hour of a day. (Your responsibility is) conveyance of the message. Then who (else) will be destroyed except the transgressing people?
