Sura Al-A'raf from 68 to 73

68. « I convey unto you the Messages of my Lord, and I am a trustworthy adviser ( or well- wisher ) for you.»
69. « Do you wonder that there has come to you a Reminder ( and an advice ) from your Lord through a man from amongst you to warn you? And remember that He made you successors after the people of Nûh ( Noah ) and increased you amply in stature. So remember the graces ( bestowed upon you ) from Allâh so that you may be successful. »
70. They said: « You have come to us that we should worship Allâh Alone and forsake that which our fathers used to worship. So bring us that wherewith you have threatened us if you are of the truthful. »
71. ( Hûd ) said: « Torment and wrath have already fallen on you from your Lord. Dispute you with me over names which you have named - you and your fathers - with no authority from Allâh? Then wait, I am with you among those who wait. »
72. So We saved him and those who were with him by a mercy from Us, and We cut the roots of those who belied Our Ayât ( proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc. ) ; and they were not believers.
73. And to Thamûd ( people, We sent ) their brother Sâlih. He said: « O my people! Worship Allâh! You have no other Ilâh ( God ) but Him. ( Lâ ilâha illallâh: none has the right to be worshipped but Allâh ) . Indeed there has come to you a clear sign ( the miracle of the coming out of a huge she- camel from the midst of a rock ) from your Lord. This she- camel of Allâh is a sign unto you; so you leave her to graze in Allâh’s earth, and touch her not with harm, lest a painful torment should seize you.»
