Even if a whiff of the Lord's chastisement were to touch them they would surely say: "Ah woe, alas, we were surely sinful."
We shall fix the scales of justice on the Day of Resurrection, so that none will be wronged in the least; and even if it were equal to a mustard seed in weight We shall take it (into account). We are sufficient for computation.

They replied: "We found our fathers worshipping them."
He said: "You and your fathers were in clear error."
They said: "Are you speaking in earnest, or only jesting?"
He said: "In fact it was your Lord, the Lord of the heavens and the earth, who created them; and I bear witness to this.
I swear by God I will do something to your idols when you have turned your backs and gone."
