And when Moses said to his people: “Remember Allah’s Blessing upon you! He delivered you from Pharaoh’s people, who were oppressing you with a severe torment, and were slaughtering your sons and letting your women alive. In this there is a great trial from your Lord.”
And then your Lord proclaimed that; “if you are grateful, We certainly give to you more (blessings), if you disbelieve My torment is truly severe”.
And Moses said: “If you and those on earth disbelieve all together, most surely Allah is Rich (Free of all needs and does not need your praise), Praised One”.
Has there not come to you the news of those who were before you, the people of Noah, Âd, and Thamoud and those who came after them? None knows them but Allah. Their Messengers came to them with the clear arguments (proofs), but they thrust their hands into their mouths (from anger) and said: “Surely we disbelieve in that with which you are sent, and most surely we are in serious doubt as to that to which you invite us.”
Their Messengers said: “Are you in doubt about Allah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth? He calls you that He may forgive you your sins and respite you till an appointed term.” They said: “You are nothing but mortals like us. You wish to turn us away from what our fathers used to worship; bring us therefore some clear miracle.”
