21. The Prophets (105 – 112)

105We wrote in the Psalms, as We did in [earlier] Scripture: ‘My righteous servants will inherit the earth.’106There truly is a message in this for the servants of God! 107It was only as a mercy that We sent you [Prophet] to all people. b Or ‘We sent you [Prophet] only as a mercy to all people’. 108Say, ‘What is revealed to me is that your God is one God—will you submit to Him?’ 109But if they turn away, say, ‘I have proclaimed the message fairly to you all. I do not know whether the judgement you are promised is near or far, 110but He knows what you reveal and conceal. 111I do not know: this [time] may well be a test for you, and enjoyment for a while.’ 112He said,c See note to verse 4. ‘My Lord, pass the true judgement.’ And, ‘Our Lord is the Lord of Mercy. We seek His assistance against what you [disbelievers] say.’

Notes:

b Or ‘We sent you [Prophet] only as a mercy to all people’.
