034 - Soorah Saba. - (Sheba) - [Makkee]
[034:023] Intercession with Him profits not except for him whom He permits. So much so that when fear is banished from their (angels') hearts, they (angels) say: "What is it that your Lord has said?" They say: "The truth. And He is the Most High, the Most Great."
[034:024] Say (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam] to polytheists, pagans): "Who gives you provision from the heavens and the earth?" Say: "All‚h. And verily, (either) we or you are rightly guided or in plain error."
[034:025] Say (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam] to polytheists, pagans): "You will not be asked about our sins, nor shall we be asked of what you do."
[034:026] Say: "Our Lord will assemble us all together (on the Day of Resurrection), then He will judge between us with truth. And He is the Just Judge, the All-Knower (of the true state of affairs)." (Tafsir Ibn Kathir)
[034:027] Say (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam] to polytheists and pagans): "Show me those whom you have joined with Him as partners. Nay (there are not at all any partners with Him)! But He is All‚h (Alone), the All-Mighty, the All-Wise."
[034:028] And We have not sent you (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) except as a giver of glad tidings and a warner to all mankind, but most of men know not.
[034:029] And they say: "When is this promise (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) if you are truthful?"
[034:030] Say (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "The appointment to you is for a Day, which you cannot put back for an hour (or a moment) nor put forward."
[034:031] And those who disbelieve say: "We believe not in this Qur'‚n nor in that which was before it." But if you could see when the Z‚limŻn (polytheists and wrong doers) will be made to stand before their Lord, how they will cast the (blaming) word one to another! Those who were deemed weak will say to those who were arrogant: "Had it not been for you, we should certainly have been believers!"
