Canst thou, perchance, O Muhammad, make the deaf hear,
or show the right way to the blind
or to such as are obviously lost in error?
But whether We do or do not take thee away ere thy message prevails —
verily, We shall inflict Our retribution on them;
and whether We show thee or do not show thee in this world
the fulfilment of what We have promised them —
verily, We have full power over them!
Zukhruf 43:40-42, tr. Asad
