It is He who created you from dust, then a drop of semen, then the embryo; afterwards He brings you forth as a child; then you attain the age of manhood, and then reach old age. But some of you die before you reach the appointed term that you may haply understand.
It is He who gives you life and death. When He creates a thing, He has only to say: "Be," and it is.
Have you not seen how those who dispute the signs of God are turned away?
Those who deny the Book and what We have sent down with Our apostles, will soon come to know
When, with (iron) collars and chains around their necks, they will be dragged
Through boiling water, and then burnt in the Fire.
They will then be asked: "Where are they you took as partners
Apart from God?" They will answer: "They have left us in the lurch and fled. In fact it was nothing that we prayed to before." That is how God sends the unbelievers astray.
"This is so because you went about exulting wrongfully in the land," (will they be told), "and you were insolent.
So enter the gates of Hell to abide in it for ever." How evil the abode of the arrogant!
So you persevere with patience (in your mission). The promise of God is true. Whether We show you some of the punishment We have promised them, or gather you up in death, they have to come back to Us.
