Call to mind when Abraham said to his father and his people: “I totally disown all whom you serve (26) “Except Him Who has created me, for He will soon direct me.” (To my place of migration.) (27) And he made it a word enduring among his seed, that haply they might return. (28) I gave them and their fathers days of enjoyment until the truth and a clear Messenger came to them. (29) but now that the truth has come to them, they say: "All this is mere spellbinding eloquence" - and behold, we deny that there is any truth in it!" (30) They also said: 'Why was this Koran not sent down to a great man from the two Villages' (31) Is it they who distribute the Mercy of your Lord? It is We Who have distributed their livelihood among them in the life of this world, and have raised some above others in rank that some of them may harness others to their service. Your Lord's Mercy is better than all the treasures that they hoard. (32) Had it not been that all people would become one community (of unbelievers), We might have given those who disbelieve in Ar-Rahman roofs of silver for their dwellings and (silver) stairs for mounting, (33) and doors to their houses, and couches whereon to recline, (34) And adornments of gold. Yet all this (i.e. the roofs, doors, stairs, elevators, thrones etc. of their houses) would have been nothing but an enjoyment of this world. And the Hereafter with your Lord is only for the Muttaqun. (35)
