[016:073] And they worship others besides All‚h such as do not and cannot own any provision for them from the heavens or the earth.


[016:074] So put not forward similitudes for All‚h (as there is nothing similar to Him, nor does He resemble anything). Truly, All‚h knows and you know not.


[016:075] All‚h puts forward the example of (two men Ė a believer and a disbeliever); a slave (disbeliever) under the possession of another, he has no power of any sort, and (the other), a man (believer) on whom We have bestowed a good provision from Us, and he spends thereof secretly and openly. Can they be equal? (By no means). All praise and thanks are All‚h's. Nay! (But) most of them know not.


[016:076] And All‚h puts forward (another) example of two men, one of them dumb, who has no power over anything (disbeliever), and he is a burden on his master; whichever way he directs him, he brings no good. Is such a man equal to one (believer in Isl‚mic Monotheism) who commands justice, and is himself on a Straight Path?


[016:077] And to All‚h belongs the Unseen of the heavens and the earth. And the matter of the Hour is not but as a twinkling of the eye, or even nearer. Truly, All‚h is Able to do all things.


[016:078] And All‚h has brought you out from the wombs of your mothers while you know nothing. And He gave you hearing, sight, and hearts that you might give thanks (to All‚h).


[016:079] Do they not see the birds held (flying) in the midst of the sky? None holds them but All‚h (none gave them the ability to fly but All‚h). Verily, in this are clear Ay‚t (proofs and signs) for a people who believe (in the Oneness of All‚h).
