021 - Soorah al-Anbiyaa. - (The Prophets) - [Makkee]
[021:045] Say (O Muhammad [sal-Allāhu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "I warn you only by the Revelation (from Allāh and not by the opinion of the religious scholars and others)." But the deaf (who follow the religious scholars and others blindly) will not hear the call, (even) when they are warned [i.e. one should follow only the Qur'ān and the Sunnah (legal ways, orders, acts of worship, and the statements of Prophet Muhammad [sal-Allāhu 'alayhi wa sallam], as the Companions of the Prophet did)].
[021:046] And if a breath (minor calamity) of the torment of your Lord touches them, they will surely cry: "Woe to us! Indeed we have been Zālimūn (polytheists and wrong doers)."
[021:047] And We shall set up Balances of justice on the Day of Resurrection, then none will be dealt with unjustly in anything. And if there be the weight of a mustard seed, We will bring it. And Sufficient are We to take account.
[021:048] And indeed We granted to Mūsā (Moses) and Hārūn (Aaron) the criterion (of right and wrong), and a shining light [i.e. the Taurāt (Torah)] and a Reminder for Al-Muttaqūn (the pious. See V.2:2).
[021:049] Those who fear their Lord without seeing Him, and they are afraid of the Hour.
[021:050] And this is a blessed Reminder (the Qur'ān) which We have sent down; will you then (dare to) deny it?
[021:051] And indeed We bestowed aforetime on Ibrāhīm (Abraham) his (portion of) guidance, and We were All-Knower of him (as to his belief in the Oneness of Allāh).
[021:052] When he said to his father and his people: "What are these images to which you are devoted?"
[021:053] They said: "We found our fathers worshipping them."
[021:054] He said: "Indeed you and your fathers have been in manifest error."
[021:055] They said: "Have you brought us the Truth, or are you one of those who play about?"
[021:056] He said: "Nay, your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth, Who created them and to that I am one of the witnesses.
[021:057] "And by Allāh, I shall plot a plan (to destroy) your idols after you have gone away and turned your backs."
