( 43 ) No nation will precede its time [of termination], nor will they remain [thereafter].
( 44 ) Then We sent Our messengers in succession. Every time there came to a nation its messenger, they denied him, so We made them follow one another [to destruction], and We made them narrations. So away with a people who do not believe.
( 45 ) Then We sent Moses and his brother Aaron with Our signs and a clear authority
( 46 ) To Pharaoh and his establishment, but they were arrogant and were a haughty people.
( 47 ) They said, “Should we believe two men like ourselves while their people are for us in servitude?”
( 48 ) So they denied them and were of those destroyed.
( 49 ) And We certainly gave Moses the Scripture that perhaps they would be guided.
( 50 ) And We made the son of Mary and his mother a sign and sheltered them within a high ground having level [areas] and flowing water.
( 51 ) [Allah said], “O messengers, eat from the good foods and work righteousness. Indeed, I, of what you do, am Knowing.
( 52 ) And indeed this, your religion, is one religion, and I am your Lord, so fear Me.”
( 53 ) But the people divided their religion among them into sects – each faction, in what it has, rejoicing.
( 54 ) So leave them in their confusion for a time.
( 55 ) Do they think that what We extend to them of wealth and children
( 56 ) Is [because] We hasten for them good things? Rather, they do not perceive.
( 57 ) Indeed, they who are apprehensive from fear of their Lord
( 58 ) And they who believe in the signs of their Lord
( 59 ) And they who do not associate anything with their Lord
