Translation

"If then they (your false gods) answer not your (call), know ye that this revelation is sent down (replete) with the knowledge of Allah, and that there is no god but He! will ye even then submit (to Islam)?"

Will you then submit?, after this definitive argument; in other words: 'Submit!'
