Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

[Ahqaf 46:1] Ha-Meem. (Alphabets of the Arabic language - Allah, and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.)

[Ahqaf 46:2] The sending down of this Book is from Allah the Most Honourable, the Wise.

[Ahqaf 46:3] We did not create the heavens and the earth and all that is between them except with the truth, and for a fixed term; and the disbelievers have turned away from what they are warned!

[Ahqaf 46:4] Proclaim, (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him), “What is your opinion - regarding those whom you worship other than Allah - show me which part of the earth they have created, or do they own any portion of the heavens? Bring to me a Book preceding this (Qur’an), or some remnants of knowledge, if you are truthful.”

[Ahqaf 46:5] And who is more astray than one who worships those, instead of Allah, who cannot listen to their prayer until* the Day of Resurrection, and who do not even know of their worship! (* Will never listen.)
