Glorified and Highly Exalted is He above what they claim!

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

or whatever you think is harder to bring to life!” Then they will ask ˹you˺, “Who will bring us back ˹to life˺?” Say, “The One Who created you the first time.” They will then shake their heads at you and ask, “When will that be?” Say, “Perhaps it is soon!”

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
