Juz 19
And this (Qur'an) is a revelation from the Lord of all the worlds, (192) The Trustworthy Spirit has brought it down (193) To (communicate) to your heart that you may be a warner (194) In eloquent Arabic. (195) And most surely the same is in the scriptures of the ancients. (196) Is it not a token for them that the doctors of the Children of Israel know it? (197) Had We revealed it to any of the non-Arabs, (198) And he had recited it unto them, they would not have believed in it. (199) Thus do We cause (unbelief) to enter the hearts of sinners. (200) They will not believe in it until they see the painful punishment. (201) that will come upon them [on resurrection,] all of a sudden, without their being aware [of its approach]; (202) and they will say, 'Shall we be respited?' (203) Do they want to hasten Our punishment? (204) Seest thou? If We do let them enjoy (this life) for a few years, (205) Then there comes to them that with which they are threatened, (206) what avail will their past enjoyments be to them? (207) Never did We destroy a population, but had its warners - (208) By way of reminder, and We have never been unjust. (209) And this Qur’an was not brought down by the devils. (210) Neither would it suit them, nor they can (produce it). (211) The satans are barred from listening to anything from the heavens. (212) So call not thou unto another god along with Allah, lest thou be of the doomed. (213) And warn thy tribe of near kindred, (214) And lower thy wing to the Believers who follow thee. (215) And if they disobey you, then say, "Indeed, I am disassociated from what you are doing." (216) And rely on the Mighty, the Merciful, (217) who can see whether you stand up (218) And thy movements among those who fall prostrate. (219) Verily! He, only He, is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower. (220) Shall I inform you (of him) upon whom the Shaitans descend? (221) They descend upon every sinful liar. (222) who lends an ear to them, and most of them are liars. (223) And as to the poets, those who go astray follow them. (224) Do you not see that in every valley they roam (225) And that they say that which they do not? (226) The righteously striving believers among them who remember God very often and use their talent to seek help after they have been wronged are the exceptional. The unjust will soon know how terrible their end will be. (227)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
