And you (O Muhammad)! You were not on the western side when we fulfilled to Moses the Commandment and you were not among the witnesses (among those who had seen the event).
But We built up (created) generations. Long were their lives. (While) you were not dwelling among the people of Madian, you recite to them (your Companions) Our Verses. But it is We Who is sending (those news to you).
And you were not on this side of the Mount Tur when We called (Moses). But as a Mercy from your Lord that you may warn a people to whom no Warner (Prophet) came before you. It is hoped that they deliberate.
And were it not that a calamity should befall them for what their hands have sent before, then they should say: “Our Lord! If only you should have sent to us a Messenger so that we would have followed your Verses and been of the believers” (then We would not have sent you as a Messenger Prophet).
But when the truth has come to them from Our Presence, they said: “Why is he not given the like of what was given to Moses”? Did they not deny before what Moses was given? They said: “Two magic backed up (supported) each other and surely we are the deniers all”.
Say (to them): “Then bring a Book from the Presence of Allah that yields to Hidayet better than both of them, (that) I may depend on it, if you are truthful”.
Then if they do not answer you (if they do not comply with your call to make them reach Hidayet), know that they only follow their low desires. Who is in more Misguidance than he who follows his low desires without any person of Hidayet from Allah? Surely Allah does not deliver the unjust people to Hidayet.
