And whoever turns a blind eye to the Reminder of the Most Compassionate, We place at the disposal of each a devilish one as their close associate,
٣٧
who will certainly hinder them from the ˹Right˺ Way while they think they are ˹rightly˺ guided.
٣٨
But when such a person comes to Us, one will say ˹to their associate˺, “I wish you were as distant from me as the east is from the west! What an evil associate ˹you were˺!”
٣٩
˹It will be said to both,˺ “Since you all did wrong, sharing in the punishment will be of no benefit to you this Day.”1 
٤٠
Can you make the deaf hear, or guide the blind or those clearly astray?
٤١
Even if We take you away ˹from this world˺, We will surely inflict punishment upon them.
٤٢
Or if We show you what We threaten them with, We certainly have full power over them.
٤٣
So hold firmly to what has been revealed to you ˹O Prophet˺. You are truly on the Straight Path.
٤٤
Surely this ˹Quran˺ is a glory for you and your people. And you will ˹all˺ be questioned ˹about it˺.
٤٥
Ask ˹the followers of˺ the messengers that We already sent before you if We ˹ever˺ appointed ˹other˺ gods to be worshipped besides the Most Compassionate.
٤٦
Indeed, We sent Moses with Our signs to Pharaoh and his chiefs, and he said: “I am a messenger of the Lord of all worlds.”
