They demand portent
Surah YUUNUS - 10 (JONAH)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
20. And they say: Why is not a portent sent down upon him from his Lord! Then say (O Muhammad): The Unseen belongeth to Allah; so wait! Lo! I am waiting with you.
20. Wa yaquu-luuna law-laaa ‘unzila ‘alayhi ‘Aayatum-mir-Rabbih. Faqul ‘Innamal-Gay-bu Lillaahi fantaziruu. ‘Innii ma-‘akum minal-munta-ziriin.
The disbelievers said: Qur’aan desires to run any new Religion, separate from our religion. As a reply; it is commanded that there was one Religion for the human beings in the beginning. Afterwards, the people created their separate religions by marring that one. Qur’aan teaches the actual Religion and I (Muhammad –grace, blessings and peace be on Him) am Messenger of Allah Almighty.
I have been instructed that I should cause to hear you the Qur’aan, cause to understand you its meanings and show you by acting upon its commandments myself. Hence they said: Show us any uncommon portent; if you are Messenger. Then we shall know that really you are a Messenger.
The same has been answered in this verse. It is commanded: these people demand an extraordinary portent in accordance with their own wish and say: If He (grace, blessings and peace be on Him) is a Messenger, it is compulsory for Him to bring any unusual portent by requesting his Lord, otherwise, how should we believe that He is a Messenger?
Allah Almighty commanded: Reply to them: Sufficient portents of My truth have been manifested for the sensible people. The Believers believe that I am a true Messenger; by observing those portents. You will behold in future, what happens from the Unseen Screen. Allah Almighty will allow this Religion to prevail over all. The disbelievers will be perplexed. OK. If you do not believe, then wait! I am waiting with you also.
