Hizb 50
Juz 25
Or has He taken daughters out of what He has created, and He has selected for you sons? (16) When one of them is given the glad news of the birth of a daughter, which they believe to be the only kind of child that the Beneficent God can have, his face blackens with anger. (17) Does God choose for Himself the kind of children who grow up wearing ornaments and who are not strong enough to defend their rights? (18) Yet they have made the angels, who are creatures of Ar-Rahman, females. Did they witness their creation? We shall record their testimony, and they will be interrogated. (19) Yet they say: "Had [not] the Most Gracious so willed, we would never have worshipped them!" [But] they cannot have any knowledge of [His having willed] such a thing: they do nothing but guess. (20) Had We, before sending the Quran, given them a book to which they now refer as an authority? (21) Rather they said, “We found our forefathers upon a religion, and we are following their footsteps.” (22) As such, We never sent a warner before you to a village, except those living in luxury said: 'We found our fathers following a creed, and by following in their footsteps we are guided' (23) ۞ [Whereupon each prophet] would say: "Why, even though I bring you guidance better than that which you found your forefathers believing in?" - [to which] the others would reply, "Behold, we deny that there is any truth in [what you claim to be] your messages!" (24) So We took revenge of them, then see what was the end of those who denied (Islamic Monotheism). (25)
