And when Our clear Verses are recited to them, those who do not wish to reach Us (while they are alive) said: “Bring a Qur’ân other than this, or change it”. Say: “It is not for me to change it based on my own soul. I only follow what is revealed to me. Surely I fear, if I disobey my Lord, the torment of a Great Day”.
Say: “If Allah had so willed, I would not have recited It to you, nor would I have made It known to you. Yet I have stayed among you a whole lifetime before It”. Do you not then exercise your mind?
So who is more unjust than he who invents a lie about Allah or denies His signs? Surely He does not cause the guilty to attain Salvation.
And they worship besides Allah what can neither harm them nor profit them (idols). And they say: “These are our intercessors with Allah”. Say: “Do you inform Allah of what He does not know in the heavens and the earth”? Glory be to Him, and supremely Exalted is He above what they associate with Him.
And mankind was not but one community. Then later they differed. Had not a Word already gone forth from your Lord, the matter would have certainly been decided between them regarding what they differed.
And they say: “Why is a sign not sent down to him from his Lord”? Say: “The Unseen is only for Allah; therefore, wait, surely I too, with you, am of those who wait”.
