He it is Who hath created you from clay, and hath decreed a term for you. A term is fixed with Him. Yet still ye doubt!

Never came there unto them a revelation of the revelations of Allah but they did turn away from it.
And they denied the truth when it came unto them. But there will come unto them the tidings of that which they used to deride.
