Revelation of the book is from God, the powerful, the wise.
We did not create the skies and the earth and whatever in between them except in truth and for a finite time. But those who disbelieve turn away from what they are warned about.
Say: “What do you think of what you call on besides God? Show me what they have created of (things that are on) the earth, or do they have a share in (the creation of) the skies? Bring me a book from before this or any indication of knowledge if you are truthful.”
Who is more mistaken than someone who calls on anyone besides God who does not answer him (even) until the Resurrection Day, and they are unaware of their call?
And when people are gathered (in the Hereafter), they will be their enemies and they will deny their servitude.
And when Our clear signs/verses are read to them, those who disbelieve say about the truth that comes to them: “This is a clear magic.”
Or they say: “He has made it up.” Say: “If I made it up, then you do not have any power (to do anything) for me against God, He knows better what you express about it (Quran), He is enough as a witness between me and you, and He is the forgiving, the merciful.”
Say: “I am not the first of the messengers, and I do not know what will be done with me and with you, I only follow what is revealed to me, and I am only a clear warner.”
Say: “What do you think if it (Quran) is from God and you disbelieve in it while a witness from children of Israel testifies to its similarities (with other scriptures) and he has believed (in it), and you are arrogant? Indeed, God does not guide the wrongdoing people.”
And those who disbelieve say to those who believe: “If it was good, no one would be ahead of us (in believing) in it.” And when they are not guided by it, they are going to say: “This is an old lie.”
And book of Moses was a leader and a mercy before it (Quran), and this is a confirming book in Arabic language, in order to warn those who do wrong and as good news to the good doers.
Indeed, those who say God is our Lord, then they persevere, they have no fear and no sadness.
They are inhabitants of the garden, remaining in there forever, as a reward for what they used to do.
And We instructed human being to kindness to his parents. His mother carried him in pain and gave birth to him in pain, while carrying him and his breastfeeding was thirty months. When he reached his full maturity and he reached forty years, he said: “My Lord, enable me to thank for Your favor that You favored upon me and upon my parents, and to do good that pleases You, and make my descendants righteous for me, indeed I turned to You (in repentance) and I am of the submitted ones.”
They are those whom We accept the best of what they do from them, and We overlook their bad deeds, (they are) among inhabitants of the garden, the true promise that they were promised.
And the one who says to his parents: “Ugh (yuck) to you, do you promise me that I am brought out while generations before me have passed away (and they were not resurrected)?” And they both ask for God’s help (saying:) “Woe to you, believe, as God’s promise is indeed true.” Then he says: “This is only stories of the earlier ones.”
They are those who deserve the word (of punishment that was decided) for groups of Jinn and humans that had passed away before them, indeed they are losers.
And everyone will have (different) ranks because of what they did, so that He repays them for their deeds, and they will not be wronged.
And on a day when those who disbelieved are presented to the fire (they are told:) “You used up your good things in your life of the world, and you enjoyed it, so today you are paid back with a humiliating punishment because you were unjustifiably arrogant on the earth and because you were disobedient.”
And remember (Hud), brother of (people of) Aad, when he warned his people at the dunes, while other warners had passed before him and after him, (saying:) “Do not serve (anyone) except God, indeed I am afraid of the punishment of a great day upon you.”
They said: “Did you come to us to turn us away from our gods? Then bring us what you promise us, if you are truthful.”
He said: “Knowledge (of it) is only with God, and I deliver to you what I was sent with, but I see that you are ignorant people.”
So, when they saw it (the punishment) as a cloud moving toward their valleys, they said: “This is a cloud bringing us rain.” No, but this is what you wanted it to be rushed, a wind with a painful punishment in it.
It destroys everything by order of its Lord. Then they became such that only (the ruins of) their houses could be seen. That is how We pay back the guilty people.
And We had certainly given them powers in something that We did not give you power in it, and We made hearing, eyes/sight, and hearts for them, but neither their hearing nor their eyes/sight nor their hearts were of any use to them at all when they were rejecting God’s signs, and what they used to ridicule (the punishment) surrounded them.
And We have certainly destroyed the towns around you, and We explained the signs in various ways so that you may return.
So, why those (people/things) whom they took as gods besides God in order to get closer (to Him) didn't help them? No, but they abandoned them. And that was their lie and what they used to fabricate.
And (remember) when We turned a number of the Jinn toward you listening to the Quran, so when they were in its presence, they said: “Be quiet (and listen).” Then when it was over, they returned to their people, warning (them).
They said: “Our people, indeed we heard a book that was sent down after Moses, confirming what was before it, guiding to the truth and to a straight path.
Our people, answer God’s caller and believe in him/Him (so that) He forgives some of your sins and protects you from a painful punishment.”
And anyone who does not answer God’s caller, he does not weaken/escape (Him) on the earth, he has no protectors besides Him. They are in obvious error.
Do they not see that God, the One Who created the skies and the earth, and He did not tire out by their creation, is able to give life to the dead? Yes, indeed He is capable of everything.
And on the day when those who disbelieved are presented to the fire (they are told:) “Is this not the truth?” They say: “Yes, by our Lord (this is the truth).” He says: “So, taste the punishment because you used to disbelieve.”
So, persevere (and be patient) as the strong-willed (and determined) messengers were, and do not ask to rush (the punishment) for them. On the day they see what they are promised, (it is) as if they only stayed (dead) for an hour of a day. This is a notification. So, would anyone be destroyed except the disobedient people?
