أَيۡنَمَا تَكُونُواْ يُدۡرِككُّمُ ٱلۡمَوۡتُ وَلَوۡ كُنتُمۡ فِى بُرُوجٍ مُّشَيَّدَةٍ ۗ وَإِن تُصِبۡهُمۡ حَسَنَةٌ يَقُولُواْ هَٰذِهِۦ مِنۡ عِندِ ٱللَّهِ ۖ وَإِن تُصِبۡهُمۡ سَيِّئَةٌ يَقُولُواْ هَٰذِهِۦ مِنۡ عِندِكَ ۚ قُلۡ كُلٌّ مِّنۡ عِندِ ٱللَّهِ ۖ فَمَالِ هَٰٓؤُلَآءِ ٱلۡقَوۡمِ لَا يَكَادُونَ يَفۡقَهُونَ حَدِيثًا
"Wherever ye are, death will find you out, even if ye are in towers built up strong and high!" If some good befalls them, they say, "This is from Allah"; but if evil, they say, "This is from thee" (O Prophet). Say: "All things are from Allah." But what hath come to these people, that they fail to understand a single fact?<br/>
Wherever you may be, death will overtake you, though you should be in raised-up, lofty, towers', forts, so do not shrink from fighting for fear of death. And if a good thing, such as fertility and abundance, befalls them, the Jews, they say, 'This is from God'; but if an evil thing, such as drought or misfortune, befalls them, as it did with them when the Prophet may peace and salutation be upon him arrived in Medina, they say, 'This is from you', O Muhammad may peace and salutation be upon him, that is, from the bad luck [you bring]. Say, to them: 'Everything, good and evil, is from God.' What is wrong with this people that they do not understand, that is, they do not come close to comprehending, any words, delivered to them (the maa, 'what' [of maa li-haa'oolaa', 'what is wrong with these'] is an interrogative intended to provoke amazement at their extreme ignorance; to state that one cannot even come close to doing something is [rhetorically] more intense than saying that he cannot do it).
