[010:015] And when Our clear Verses are recited to them, those who hope not for their Meeting with Us, say: "Bring us a Qur'‚n other than this, or change it." Say (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "It is not for me to change it on my own accord; I only follow that which is revealed to me. Verily, I fear the torment of a Great Day (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) if I were to disobey my Lord."


[010:016] Say (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "If All‚h had so willed, I should not have recited it to you, nor would He have made it known to you, Verily, I have stayed amongst you a lifetime before this. Have you then no sense?"


[010:017] So who does more wrong than he who forges a lie against All‚h or denies His Ay‚t (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.)? Surely, the MujrimŻn (criminals, sinners, disbelievers and polytheists) will never be successful!


[010:018] And they worship besides All‚h things that harm them not, nor profit them, and they say: "These are our intercessors with All‚h." Say: "Do you inform All‚h of that which He knows not in the heavens and on the earth?" Glorified and Exalted is He above all that which they associate as partners (with Him)!


[010:019] Mankind were but one community (i.e. on one religion Ė Isl‚mic Monotheism), then they differed (later); and had not it been for a Word that went forth before from your Lord, it would have been settled between them regarding what they differed.


[010:020] And they say: "How is it that not a sign is sent down on him from his Lord?" Say: "The Unseen belongs to All‚h Alone, so wait you, verily, I am with you among those who wait (for All‚h's Judgement)."




(V.10:19) Narrated Abu Hurairah [radhi-yAll‚hu 'anhu]: The Prophet [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam] said, "Every child is born on Al-Fitrah [true faith of Isl‚mic Monotheism (i.e. to worship none but All‚h Alone)], but his parents convert him to Judaism or Christianity or Magianism, as an animal gives birth to a perfect baby animal. Do you find it mutilated?"

[Sahih Al-Bukhari, 2/1385 (O.P.467)]. [See also (V.30:30)]
