Juz 9
And when thy Lord took from the Children of Adam, from their loins, their seed, and made them testify touching themselves, 'Am I not your Lord?' They said, 'Yes, we testify'-- lest you should say on the Day of Resurrection, 'As for us, we were heedless of this,' (172) Or lest ye should say: "Our fathers before us may have taken false gods, but we are (their) descendants after them: wilt Thou then destroy us because of the deeds of men who were futile?" (173) Thus do We explain Our revelations so that they might return to (the right path). (174) Recite to them the news of he to whom We gave Our verses and who turned away from them; how satan overtook him so he was led astray. (175) if it had been Our will, We could have used these signs to exalt him, but instead he clung to the earth and followed his own desires, he was like a dog that pants whether you chase it away or leave it alone. Such are those who reject Our signs. Tell them this story so that they may reflect. (176) Evil as an example are people who reject Our signs and wrong their own souls. (177) He whom Allah guides, he alone is rightly guided; and he whom Allah lets go astray - it is they who are the loser.' (178) Many of the jinns and human beings have We destined for Hell, who possess hearts but do not feel, have eyes but do not see, have ears but do not hear, like cattle, even worse than them. They are people unconcerned. (179) Allah's are the excellent names; so call on Him thereby; and leave alone those who profane His names. Anon will they be requited for that which they were wont to work. (180) Among Our creatures are a group who guide and judge with the Truth. (181)
