[022:065] See you not that Allāh has subjected to you (mankind) all that is on the earth, and the ships that sail through the sea by His Command? He withholds the heaven from falling on the earth except by His Leave. Verily, Allāh is, for mankind, full of kindness, Most Merciful.


[022:066] It is He, Who gave you life, and then will cause you to die, and will again give you life (on the Day of Resurrection). Verily, man is indeed an ingrate.


[022:067] For every nation We have ordained religious ceremonies [e.g. slaughtering of the cattle during the three days of stay at Mīna (Makkah) during the Hajj (pilgrimage)] which they must follow; so let them (the pagans) not dispute with you on the matter (i.e. to eat of the cattle which you slaughter, and not to eat of the cattle which Allāh kills by its natural death), but invite them to your Lord. Verily, you (O Muhammad [sal-Allāhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) indeed are on the (true) straight guidance (i.e. the true religion of Islāmic Monotheism).


[022:068] And if they argue with you (as regards the slaughtering of the sacrifices), say "Allāh knows best of what you do.


[022:069] "Allāh will judge between you on the Day of Resurrection about that wherein you used to differ."


[022:070] Know you not that Allāh knows all that is in the heaven and on the earth? Verily, it is (all) in the Book (Al-Lauh Al-Mahfūz). Verily, that is easy for Allāh.


[022:071] And they worship besides Allāh others for which He has sent down no authority, and of which they have no knowledge; and for the Zālimūn (wrong doers, polytheists and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allāh) there is no helper.


[022:072] And when Our Clear Verses are recited to them, you will notice a denial on the faces of the disbelievers! They are nearly ready to attack with violence those who recite Our Verses to them. Say: "Shall I tell you of something worse than that? The Fire (of Hell) which Allāh has promised to those who disbelieved, and worst indeed is that destination!"
