Or do their minds command them this? Or are they an inordinate people?
Or do they say: “He has forged and said it by himself”? Nay, they do not believe.
Then let them bring a speech (verse of the Quran) like it, if they are truthful.
Or were they created without there being anything (without any Creator)? Or are they themselves the creators?
Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Nay, they can have no certainty (closeness) to Allah.
Or are the treasures of your Lord next to them? Or do they have them?
Or have they ladders to listen to (the conversations) there? Then let the listeners bring a clear proof.
Or do you ask them for a wage? So that they are overburdened by a debt!
Or that the Unseen is with them, and they write it down?
Or do they intend a plot? But those who disbelieve are themselves who will be in plot.
Or do have they deities other than Allah? Glory be to Allah from what they associate with Him!
And if they were to see a piece of the sky falling down, they would say: “Piled up clouds”.
Leave them then till they meet the Day of theirs wherein they shall ruin.
On that Day their plotting shall not avail them at all nor will they be helped.
And surely, for those who do wrong, there is another torment besides this, but most of them do not know.
So be patient with the Judgment of your Lord. Because certainly you are before Our Eyes. And glorify your Lord with praise when you get up.
And in the part of night glorify Him and also at the setting of the stars.
