Surah ad-Dukhan (Smoke) 44 : 14
1. Lessons/Guidance/Reflections/Gems[ edit ]
They are told that a positive response to their appeal is impossible. It is now too late: "How will this remembrance benefit them? A messenger who clearly explained things had previously come to them; but they turned their backs on him and said 'He is taught by others, a madman!' (Verses 13-14)
They claimed that a non-Arab person or people taught the Prophet the Qur'an, and they further alleged that Muhammad (peace be upon him) was a madman.
Having given them this image of a time when they appeal in vain, they are told that they still have a chance, which they should not lose. While they are still in this life, their punishment is delayed. If they believe now, as they will later promise they would if returned.
