And [mention] the Day when He will gather them all and then say to the angels, “Did these [people] used to worship you?”

( 41 ) They will say, “Exalted are You! You, [O Allah], are our benefactor not them. Rather, they used to worship the jinn; most of them were believers in them.”
( 42 ) But today you do not hold for one another [the power of] benefit or harm, and We will say to those who wronged, “Taste the punishment of the Fire, which you used to deny.”
( 43 ) And when our verses are recited to them as clear evidences, they say, “This is not but a man who wishes to avert you from that which your fathers were worshipping.” And they say, “This is not except a lie invented.” And those who disbelieve say of the truth when it has come to them, “This is not but obvious magic.”
( 44 ) And We had not given them any scriptures which they could study, and We had not sent to them before you, [O Muhammad], any warner.
( 45 ) And those before them denied, and the people of Makkah have not attained a tenth of what We had given them. But the former peoples denied My messengers, so how [terrible] was My reproach.
( 46 ) Say, “I only advise you of one [thing] – that you stand for Allah, [seeking truth] in pairs and individually, and then give thought.” There is not in your companion any madness. He is only a warner to you before a severe punishment.
( 47 ) Say, “Whatever payment I might have asked of you – it is yours. My payment is only from Allah, and He is, over all things, Witness.”
( 48 ) Say, “Indeed, my Lord projects the truth. Knower of the unseen.”
