He said, 'Verily, I am a servant of God; He has brought me the Book, and He has made me a prophet, and He has made me blessed wherever I be; and He has required of me prayer and almsgiving so long as I live, and piety towards my mother, and has not made me a miserable tyrant; and peace upon me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I shall be raised up alive.'

Ayat [41-45] And warn them of the day of sighing, when

Ayat [81-85] Hast thou seen him who disbelieves in our signs, and says, 'I shall surely be given wealth and children 1?'
