[Nahl 16:55] In order to deny the favours We have given them; so enjoy a little; for you will soon come to know.

[Nahl 16:56] And for things unknown, they assign a portion of the sustenance We have given them; by Allah - you will certainly be questioned regarding all that you used to fabricate.

[Nahl 16:57] And they assign daughters to Allah - Purity is to Him! - and assign for themselves what they wish.

[Nahl 16:58] And when one among of them receives the glad tidings of a daughter, his face turns black for the day, and he remains seething.

[Nahl 16:59] Hiding from the people because of the evil of the tidings; "Will he keep her with disgrace, or bury her beneath the earth?"; pay heed! Very evil is the judgement they impose!

[Nahl 16:60] Those who do not believe in the Hereafter, for them only is the evil state; and the Majesty of Allah is Supreme; and He only is the Most Honourable, the Wise.

Section 8

[Nahl 16:61] Were Allah to seize people on account of their injustices, He would not have left anyone walking on the earth, but He gives them respite up to an appointed promise; then when their promise comes they cannot go back one moment nor come forward.

[Nahl 16:62] And they assign to Allah that which is abhorred by themselves, and their tongues speak the lies that goodness is for them; so it occurred that for them is the fire, and they have crossed the limits.

[Nahl 16:63] By Allah, We indeed sent Noble Messengers to several nations before you, but Satan made their misdeeds appear good to them - so he only is their companion this day, and for them is a punishment, most painful.

[Nahl 16:64] And We did not send down this Book towards you except for you to clearly explain to them the matters in which they may differ, and a guidance and a mercy for the believers.
