فَقُلۡنَا ٱضۡرِبُوهُ بِبَعۡضِهَا ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ يُحۡىِ ٱللَّهُ ٱلۡمَوۡتَىٰ وَيُرِيكُمۡ ءَايَٰتِهِۦ لَعَلَّكُمۡ تَعۡقِلُونَ
So We said: "Strike the (body) with a piece of the (heifer)." Thus Allah bringeth the dead to life and showeth you His Signs: Perchance ye may understand.<br/>
so We said, 'Smite him, the slain man, with part of it', and so when he was struck with its tongue or its tail, he came back to life and said, 'So-and-so killed me', and after pointing out two of his cousins, he died; the two [killers] were denied the inheritance and were later killed. God says: even so, is the revival, for, God brings to life the dead, and He shows you His signs, the proofs of His power, so that you might understand, [that you might] reflect and realise that the One capable of reviving a single soul is also capable of reviving a multitude of souls, and then believe.
