وَقَالُواْ لَوۡلَا يَأۡتِينَا بِـَٔايَةٍ مِّن رَّبِّهِۦٓ ۚ أَوَلَمۡ تَأۡتِهِم بَيِّنَةُ مَا فِى ٱلصُّحُفِ ٱلۡأُولَىٰ
They say: "Why does he not bring us a sign from his Lord?" Has not a Clear Sign come to them of all that was in the former Books of revelation?<br/>
And they, the idolaters, say, 'Why does he, Muhammad may peace and salutation be upon him, not bring us a sign from his Lord?', of the sort which they request. Has there not come to them (read ta'tihim or ya'tihim) the clear proof, the statements, of what is in the former scriptures?, the tales contained in Al-Qur'an relating to past communities and [the details of] their destruction for denying the messengers?
