Allah is the ally of those who believe. He brings them out from darknesses into the light. And those who disbelieve - their allies are Taghut. They take them out of the light into darknesses. Those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide eternally therein.
Have you not considered the one who argued with Abraham about his Lord [merely] because Allah had given him kingship? When Abraham said, |My Lord is the one who gives life and causes death,| he said, |I give life and cause death.| Abraham said, |Indeed, Allah brings up the sun from the east, so bring it up from the west.| So the disbeliever was overwhelmed [by astonishment], and Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.
Or [consider such an example] as the one who passed by a township which had fallen into ruin. He said, |How will Allah bring this to life after its death?| So Allah caused him to die for a hundred years; then He revived him. He said, |How long have you remained?| The man said, |I have remained a day or part of a day.| He said, |Rather, you have remained one hundred years. Look at your food and your drink; it has not changed with time. And look at your donkey; and We will make you a sign for the people. And look at the bones [of this donkey] - how We raise them and then We cover them with flesh.| And when it became clear to him, he said, |I know that Allah is over all things competent.
