Does their reasoning prompt them to this, or they are a people rebellious?
Or do they say: "He has fabricated it?" In fact, they will never believe.
So let them bring a discourse like it, if they are truthful
Or were they created of themselves? Or are they the creators?
Or have they created the heavens and the earth? In fact they are certain of nothing.
Do they possess the treasures of your Lord? Or are they the treasurers?
Or do they have a ladder (climbing which) they can hear (the secrets of heaven)? Let one who has heard then bring a clear proof.
Has (God) daughters and they sons?
Or do you demand any wages from them so that they are burdened with expense?
Or do they have knowledge of the Unknown which they write down?
Or do they want to stage a deception? -- Then only those who do not believe will be the ones who will be tricked.
Or do they have a god apart from God? He is too exalted for what they associate with Him!
If they should see a segment falling from the sky, they would say: "It is only a massive cloud."
So, leave them until they face their day (of doom) when they will be stunned.
Their deception will not avail them in the least on that day, nor will they be helped.
Surely there are other torments besides this for those who are wicked, though most of them do not know.
Await the judgement of your Lord, for you are always before Our eyes, and glorify your Lord with praises when you rise,
And glorify Him in the night and when the stars begin to wane.
