If We allow man to enjoy Our favours, and then take them away from him, he becomes despondent and ungrateful. (9) But if We give him a taste of (Our) favours after adversity hath touched him, he is sure to say, "All evil has departed from me:" Behold! he falls into exultation and pride. (10) except those who are patient and do good deeds, for them awaits forgiveness and a mighty wage. (11) A likely thing, that thou wouldst forsake aught of that which hath been revealed unto thee, and that thy breast should be straitened for it, because they say: Why hath not a treasure been sent down for him, or an angel come with him? Thou art but a warner, and Allah is in charge of all things. (12) and so they assert, "[Muhammad himself] has invented this [Qur'an]!" Say [unto them]: "Produce, then, ten surahs of similar merit, invented [by yourselves,] and [to this end] call to your aid whomever you can, other than God, if what you say is true! (13) If they will not respond to you, know that God has sent it with His knowledge and that He is the only God. Will you then become Muslims?" (14) We shall pay those who desire the present life and its adornments in full for the work they have done therein, they shall not be defrauded; (15) They are those for whom there is nothing in the Hereafter but Fire; and vain are the deeds they did therein. And of no effect is that which they used to do. (16) So is one who [stands] upon a clear evidence from his Lord [like the aforementioned]? And a witness from Him follows it, and before it was the Scripture of Moses to lead and as mercy. Those [believers in the former revelations] believe in the Qur'an. But whoever disbelieves in it from the [various] factions - the Fire is his promised destination. So be not in doubt about it. Indeed, it is the truth from your Lord, but most of the people do not believe. (17) Who doeth greater wrong than he who inventeth a lie concerning Allah? Such will be brought before their Lord, and the witnesses will say: These are they who lied concerning their Lord. Now the curse of Allah is upon wrong-doers, (18) who turn others away from the path of God and try to make it appear crooked - since it is they, they who refuse to acknowledge the truth of the life to come! (19) Such will not escape in the earth, nor have they any protecting friends beside Allah. For them the torment will be double. They could not bear to hear, and they used not to see. (20) Those are they that have lost their souls, and that which they forged has left them; (21) Undoubtedly they! in the Hereafter they shall be the greatest losers. (22) But those who believe, and do righteous deeds, and have humbled themselves unto their Lord -- they shall be the inhabitants of Paradise, therein dwelling forever. (23) ۞ The likeness of the two parties is as the blind and deaf, and the seeing and hearing. Are the twain equal in likeness? Admonished are ye not then? (24)
