Section 5 (32-37)
32. Walaqadi istuhzi-a birusulin min qablika faamlaytu lillatheena kafaroo thumma
akhathtuhum fakayfa kana AAiqab
32. Mocked were (many) apostles before thee: but I granted respite to the unbelievers,
and finally I punished them: Then how (terrible) was my requital!
33. Afaman huwa qa-imun AAala kulli nafsin bima kasabat wajaAAaloo lillahi shurakaa
qul sammoohum am tunabbi-oonahu bima la yaAAlamu fee al-ardi am bi
alqawli bal zuyyina lillatheena kafaroo makruhum wasuddoo AAani a
yudlili Allahu fama lahu min had
33. Is then He who standeth over every soul (and knoweth) all that it doth, (like any
others)? And yet they ascribe partners to Allah. Say: "But name them! is it that ye will
inform Him of something he knoweth not on earth, or is it (just) a show of words?" Nay!
to those who believe not, their pretence seems pleasing, but they are kept back (thereby)
from the path. And those whom Allah leaves to stray, no one can guide.www.islamicbulletin.com
