Říkají ti, kdož nic nevědí: „Proč pak s námi Bůh nepromluví anebo proč k nám nepřijde se znamením?“ A hovořili ti, kdož byli před nimi, jazykem podobným a i srdce jejich jsou si podobna. A My ukázali jsme znamení jasná lidu, jenž je pevně přesvědčen.
And they, that is the disbelievers of Mecca, who do not know, say, to the Prophet (s): ‘Why does God not speak to us?, [to say] that you are His Messenger; Why does a sign not come to us?’, of the sort we have requested in order to show your sincerity. So, in the same way that these [disbelievers] have spoken, spoke those before them, from among past communities, to their prophets, the like of what they say, in [their] obstinacy and demand for signs; their hearts are much alike, in terms of unbelief and stubbornness: this is meant as consolation for the Prophet (s). Yet We have made clear the signs to a people who are certain, [a people] who know that these are [God’s] signs and so they believe in them, for to request other signs would be obduracy.
