[030:051] And if We send a wind [which would spoil the green growth (tilth) brought up by the previous rain], and they see (their tilth) turn yellow Ė behold, they then (after their being glad) would become unthankful (to their Lord All‚h as) disbelievers. (Tafsir At-Tabari)


[030:052] So verily, you (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) cannot make the dead to hear (i.e. the disbelievers), nor can you make the deaf to hear the call, when they show their backs and turn away.


[030:053] And you (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) cannot guide the blind from their straying; you can make to hear only those who believe in Our Ay‚t (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), and have submitted to All‚h in Isl‚m (as Muslims).


[030:054] All‚h is He Who created you in (a state of) weakness, then gave you strength after weakness, then after strength gave (you) weakness and gray hair. He creates what He wills. And it is He Who is the All-Knowing, the All-Powerful (i.e. Able to do all things).


[030:055] And on the Day that the Hour will be established, the MujrimŻn (criminals, disbelievers, polytheists, sinners) will swear that they stayed not but an hour Ė thus were they ever deluded [away from the truth (i.e. they used to tell lies and take false oaths, and turn away from the truth) in this life of the world].


[030:056] And those who have been bestowed with knowledge and Faith will say: "Indeed you have stayed according to the Decree of All‚h, until the Day of Resurrection; so this is the Day of Resurrection, but you knew not."


[030:057] So, on that Day no excuse of theirs will avail those who did wrong (by associating partners in worship with All‚h, and by denying the Day of Resurrection), nor will they be allowed (then) to return to seek All‚h's Pleasure (by having Isl‚mic Faith with righteous deeds and by giving up polytheism, sins and crimes with repentance).


[030:058] And indeed We have set forth for mankind, in this Qur'‚n every kind of parable. But if you (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) bring to them any sign or proof (as an evidence for the truth of your Prophethood), the disbelievers are sure to say (to the believers): "You follow nothing but falsehood and magic."


[030:059] Thus does All‚h seal up the hearts of those who know not [the proofs and evidence of the Oneness of All‚h, i.e. those who try not to understand true facts that which you (Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) have brought to them].


[030:060] So be patient (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]). Verily, the Promise of All‚h is true; and let not those who have no certainty of Faith discourage you from conveying All‚h's Message (which you are obliged to convey).
