Section 8 (54-59)

54. Walaqad sarrafna fee hatha alqur-ani li


nnasi min kulli mathalin wakana al-insanu

akthara shay-in jadala

55. Wama manaAAa a


nnasa an yu/minoo ith jaahumu alhuda wayastaghfiroo rabbahum

illa an ta/tiyahum sunnatu al-awwaleena aw ya/tiyahumu alAAathabu qubula

of the ancients be repeated with them, or the Wrath be brought to them face to face?
