Allah said,

﴿وَإِن يَرَوْاْ ءَايَةً﴾

(And if they see an Ayah), if they see proof, evidence and a sign,


(they turn away), they do not believe in it. Rather, they turn away from it, abandoning it behind their backs,

﴿وَيَقُولُواْ سِحْرٌ مُّسْتَمِرٌّ﴾

(and say: "This is magic, Mustamir.'') They say, `the sign that we saw was magic, which was cast on us.' Mustamir, means, `will soon go away', according to Mujahid, Qatadah and several others. The Quraysh said that the cleaving of the moon was false and will soon diminish and fade away,

﴿وَكَذَّبُواْ وَاتَّبَعُواْ أَهْوَآءَهُمْ﴾

(They denied and followed their own lusts.), they rejected the truth when it came to them, following the ignorance and foolishness that their lusts and desires called them to. Allah's statement,

﴿وَكُلُّ أَمْرٍ مُّسْتَقِرٌّ﴾

(And every matter will be settled.) means, the good deeds will take their doers to all that is good and righteous, and similarly evil deeds will take their doers to all that is evil, according to Qatadah, while Ibn Jurayj said, "will settle according to its people.'' Mujahid commented on the meaning of,

﴿وَكُلُّ أَمْرٍ مُّسْتَقِرٌّ﴾

(And every matter will be settled.) by saying, "On the Day of Resurrection.'' Allah's statement,

﴿وَلَقَدْ جَآءَهُم مِّنَ الاٌّنبَآءِ﴾

(And indeed there has come to them news); in this Qur'an, there has come to them the news of the earlier nations that disbelieved in their Messengers and the torment, punishment and affliction that befell them,

﴿مَا فِيهِ مُزْدَجَرٌ﴾

(wherein there is Muzdajar), wherein there are warnings and lessons to stop them from idolatry and persisting in denial,

﴿حِكْمَةٌ بَـلِغَةٌ﴾

(Perfect wisdom,) in that Allah guides whomever He wills and misguides whomever He wills,

﴿فَمَا تُغْنِـى النُّذُرُ﴾

(but warners benefit them not.) but the preaching of warnings does not benefit those upon whom Allah has written misery and sealed their hearts. Who can guide such people after Allah This Ayah is similar to Allah's statements,

﴿قُلْ فَلِلَّهِ الْحُجَّةُ الْبَـلِغَةُ فَلَوْ شَآءَ لَهَدَاكُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ ﴾

(Say: "With Allah is the perfect proof and argument; had He so willed, He would indeed have guided you all.'')(6:149) and,

﴿وَمَا تُغْنِى الآيَـتُ وَالنُّذُرُ عَن قَوْمٍ لاَّ يُؤْمِنُونَ﴾

(But neither Ayat nor warners benefit those who believe not.)(10:101)

﴿فَتَوَلَّ عَنْهُمْ يَوْمَ يَدْعُو الدَّاعِ إِلَى شَىْءٍ نُّكُرٍ - خُشَّعاً أَبْصَـرُهُمْ يَخْرُجُونَ مِنَ الاٌّجْدَاثِ كَأَنَّهُمْ جَرَادٌ مُّنتَشِرٌ - مُّهْطِعِينَ إِلَى الدَّاعِ يَقُولُ الْكَـفِرُونَ هَـذَا يَوْمٌ عَسِرٌ ﴾

(6. So withdraw from them. The Day that the caller will call (them) to a terrible thing.) (7. They will come forth, with humbled eyes from (their) graves as if they were locusts spread abroad,) (8. Hastening towards the caller. The disbelievers will say: "This is a hard Day.'')
