And remember when your Lord brought forth the generations from the backs of the Descendants of Adam, and made them their own witness; “Am I not your Lord?”; they all said, “Yes surely You are, why not? We testify”; for you may say on the Day of Resurrection that, “We were unaware of this.” (172) Or lest ye should say: it was only our fathers who associated afore, and we have been a posterity after them; wilt Thou then destroy us for that which the followers of falsehood did? (173) That is how We explain Our signs distinctly so that they may come back (to the right path). (174) Recite to them the news of he to whom We gave Our verses and who turned away from them; how satan overtook him so he was led astray. (175) And had We willed We could have raised him by their means, but he clung to the earth and followed his own lust. Therefor his likeness is as the likeness of a dog: if thou attackest him he panteth with his tongue out, and if thou leavest him he panteth with his tongue out. Such is the likeness of the people who deny Our revelations. Narrate unto them the history (of the men of old), that haply they may take thought. (176) Evil is the likeness of the people who reject Our communications and are unjust to their own souls. (177) Those whom God has guided have the true guidance, but those whom He has caused to go astray are certainly lost. (178) For Gehenna, We have created many jinn and many humans. They have hearts, with which they cannot understand; eyes, with which they do not see; and ears, with which they do not hear. They are like cattle, rather, they are the more misguided. Such are the heedless. (179) All the names of God are beautiful, so call Him by them; and leave those alone who act profanely towards His names: They will be retributed for their deeds. (180) Yet there are among those We have created people who lead (others) to the truth, and act justly in its light (181)
