أَمِ ٱتَّخَذَ مِمَّا يَخۡلُقُ بَنَاتٍ وَأَصۡفَىٰكُم بِٱلۡبَنِينَ
What! has He taken daughters out of what He himself creates, and granted to you sons for choice?<br/>
Or (am has the significance of the hamza of denial; the 'saying' is implied, in other words, a-taqooloona, '[or] do you say that .') He has adopted, from all that He has created, daughters, for Himself, and preferred you, privileged you, with sons? - that which is the necessary inference from what you claim and which by itself is an abomination.
