46 THE SAND-DUNES (28 – 35)

And when We turned to thee a company of jinn giving ear to the Koran; and when they were in its presence they said, ‘Be silent!’ Then, when it was finished, they turned back to their people, warning. They said, ‘Our people, we have heard a Book that was sent down after Moses, confirming what was before it, guiding to the truth and to a straight path. 30O our people, answer God's summoner, and believe in Him, and He will forgive you some of your sins, and protect you from a painful chastisement. Whosoever answers not God's summoner cannot frustrate God in the earth, and he has no protectors apart from Him; those are in manifest error.’

What, have they not seen that God who created the heavens and earth, not being wearied by creating them, is able to give life to the dead? Yes indeed; He is powerful over everything.

Upon the day when the unbelievers are exposed to the Fire: ‘Is not this the truth?’ They shall say, ‘Yes, by our Lord!’ He shall say, ‘Then taste the chastisement of your unbelief!’

So be thou patient, as the Messengers possessed of constancy were also patient. Seek not to hasten it for them— it shall be as if, on the day they see that they are promised, 35they had not tarried but for an hour of a single day. A Message to be delivered! And shall any be destroyed but the people of the ungodly?
