And ˹remember˺ when Abraham said to his people, “Worship Allah, and fear Him. This is better for you, if only you knew.
١٧
You worship besides Allah nothing but idols, simply creating lies ˹about them˺. Those you worship besides Allah certainly cannot give you any provision. So seek provision from Allah ˹alone˺, worship Him, and be grateful to Him. To Him you will ˹all˺ be returned.
١٨
If you ˹Meccans˺ persist in denial, so did ˹many˺ communities before you. The Messenger’s duty is only to deliver ˹the message˺ clearly.”
١٩
Have they not seen how Allah originates the creation then resurrects it? That is certainly easy for Allah.
٢٠
Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “Travel throughout the land and see how He originated the creation, then Allah will bring it into being one more time. Surely Allah is Most Capable of everything.
٢١
He punishes whoever He wills, and shows mercy to whoever He wills. And you will ˹all˺ be returned to Him.
٢٢
And you cannot escape Him on earth or in heaven. Nor have you any protector or helper besides Allah.”
٢٣
As for those who disbelieve in Allah’s signs and the meeting with Him, it is they who will have no hope in His mercy.1 And it is they who will suffer a painful punishment.
