  5. Has not the story reached you, of thosewho rejected Faith aforetime? So they tasted the evil result of theirconduct; and they had a grievous Penalty.

  6. That was because there came to themapostles with Clear Signs, but they said: "Shall (mere) human beings directus?" So they rejected (the Message) and turned away. But Allah can dowithout (them): and Allah is free of all needs, worthy of all praise.

  7. The Unbelievers think that they will notbe raised up (for Judgment). Say: "Yea, By my Lord, Ye shall surely beraised up: then shall ye be told (the truth) of all that ye did. And that iseasy for Allah."
