Sura Ibrahim from 6 to 10

6. And ( remember ) when Mûsâ ( Moses ) said to his people: « Call to mind Allâh’s Favour to you, when He delivered you from Fir‘aun’s ( Pharaoh ) people who were afflicting you with horrible torment, and were slaughtering your sons and letting your women alive; and in it was a tremendous trial from your Lord. »
7. And ( remember ) when your Lord proclaimed: « If you give thanks ( by accepting Faith and worshipping none but Allâh ) , I will give you more ( of My Blessings ) ; but if you are thankless ( i.e. disbelievers ) , verily My punishment is indeed severe. »
8. And Mûsâ ( Moses ) said: « If you disbelieve, you and all on earth together, then verily Allâh is Rich ( Free of all needs ) , Owner of all Praise. »
9. Has not the news reached you, of those before you, the people of Nûh ( Noah ) , and ‘Âd, and Thamûd? And those after them? None knows them but Allâh. To them came their Messengers with clear proofs, but they put their hands in their mouths ( biting them from anger ) and said: « Verily, we disbelieve in that with which you have been sent, and we are really in grave doubt as to that to which you invite us ( i.e. Islâmic Monotheism ) . »
10. Their Messengers said: « What! Can there be a doubt about Allâh, the Creator of the heavens and the earth? He calls you ( to Monotheism and to be obedient to Allâh ) that He may forgive you of your sins and give you respite for a term appointed. » They said: « You are no more than human beings like us! You wish to turn us away from what our fathers used to worship. Then bring us a clear authority ( i.e. a clear proof of what you say ) . »
