77. So persevere in patience; for the Promise of Allah is true: and whether We show thee
(in this life) some part of what We promise them,- or We take thy soul (to Our Mercy)
(before that),-(in any case) it is to Us that they shall (all) return.
78. Walaqad arsalna rusulan min qablika minhum man qasasna AAalayka waminhum

78. We did aforetime send apostles before thee: of them there are some whose story We
have related to thee, and some whose story We have not related to thee. It was not
(possible) for any apostle to bring a sign except by the leave of Allah. but when the
Command of Allah issued, the matter was decided in truth and justice, and there perished,
there and then those who stood on Falsehoods.
