  1. And when Our clear revelations are recited unto them, those who disbelieve say of the Truth when it reacheth them: This is mere magic. Or say they: He hath invented it? Say: If I have invented it, still ye have no power to support me against Allah. He is best aware of what ye say among yourselves concerning it. He sufficeth for a witness between me and you. And He is the Forgiving, the Merciful. (SURAH AL-Ahqaf. verse no.7-8)
