Translation

If indeed thou ask them who it is that created the heavens and the earth, they would be sure to say, "Allah". Say: "See ye then? the things that ye invoke besides Allah,- can they, if Allah wills some Penalty for me, remove His Penalty?- Or if He wills some Grace for me, can they keep back his Grace?" Say: "Sufficient is Allah for me! In Him trust those who put their trust."

Tafsir

And if (wa-la-in: the laam is for oaths) you ask them, 'Who created the skies and the earth?' they will surely say, 'God.' Say: 'Have you considered then those on whom you call, [those whom] you worship, besides God, namely, the idols, if God should desire some harm to befall me, would they [be able to] remove the harm imposed by Him? No! Or if He should desire some mercy for me, would they [be able to] withhold His mercy?' No! (a variant reading for the two clauses [kaashifaatun durrahu and mumsikaatun rahmatahu] has the genitive construction [kaashifaatu durrihi and mumsikaatu rahmatihi). Say: 'God is sufficient for me. In Him do [all] the trusting put their trust'.
