But if they belie you, then say: “Your Lord is the Owner of Vast Mercy”; and never will His severe punishment turned back from the people who are criminal (guilty).
Those who ascribe partners will say: “If Allah had willed, we would not have ascribed partners, nor would our fathers nor would we have forbidden anything”. Likewise belied those who were before them till they tasted Our punishment. Say: “Have you any knowledge with you? If so, you should bring it forth to us. You only follow a conjecture and you only tell lies”.
Say: “Then Allah’s is the strongest proof. Had He so willed, He would indeed have caused you all to attain to Guidance (Hidayet)”.
Say: “Bring your witnesses who should bear witness that Allah has forbidden this”. Then if they bear witness, do not bear witness with them. Do not follow the vain desires of those who deny Our Verses and of those who do not believe in the Hereafter. And they make (others) equal to their Lord (associating partners).
Say: “Come, I will recite what your Lord has forbidden to you; that you do not associate anything with Him. And show kindness to your parents. Do not kill your children for (fear of poverty)”. We provide sustenance for you and for them. Do not approach wickedness that is apparent or concealed. Do not kill which Allah has forbidden except for a just cause. This He has enjoined you with that you may be mindful.
