Juz 19
And truly, this (the Quran) is a revelation from the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists), (192) Which the True Spirit hath brought down (193) Upon your heart, for you to convey warning. (194) It has been revealed in plain Arabic. (195) This is (indicated) in the Books of earlier people. (196) Is it not evidence enough for them that the learned among the Children of Israel have recognized this [as true]? (197) Had We revealed it to a man of obscure tongue (198) they would still not have believed in it. (199) Thus have We caused this [message] to pass [unheeded] through the hearts of those who are lost in sin: (200) They will not believe in it until they suffer the painful torment. (201) And it will come to them suddenly while they perceive [it] not. (202) Then they will exclaim, "Could we have some respite?" (203) Do they then ask for Our Penalty to be hastened on? (204) What thinkest thou? If We give them enjoyment of days for many years, (205) and then Our torment will strike them, (206) All that with which they used to enjoy shall not avail them. (207) Never have We destroyed a habitation till We had sent admonishers to them (208) and reminded: for, never do We wrong [anyone]. (209) The devils did not bring it down. (210) It would neither suit them nor would they be able (to produce it). (211) Indeed they are debarred from even hearing it. (212) Therefore do not worship another deity along with Allah, for you will be punished. (213) And warn your tribe (O Muhammad SAW) of near kindred. (214) And spread your wing of mercy for the believers following you. (215) but if they disobey thee, say: "I am free of responsibility for aught that you may do!" (216) Have trust in the Majestic and All-merciful God, (217) Who seeth thee when thou standest up (to pray) (218) and when you turn among those who prostrate themselves. (219) Lo! He, only He, is the Hearer, the Knower. (220) Shall I declare unto you upon whom the satans descend! (221) They come to every sinful liar. (222) who lends an ear to them, and most of them are liars. (223) As for the poets - it is the seduced who follow them. (224) Art thou not aware that they roam confusedly through all the valleys [of words and thoughts,] (225) And that they say that which they do not? (226) Save those that believe, and do righteous deeds, and remember God oft, and help themselves after being wronged; and those who do wrong shall surely know by what overturning they will be overturned. (227)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
