وَٱلَّذِى قَالَ لِوَٰلِدَيۡهِ أُفٍّ لَّكُمَآ أَتَعِدَانِنِىٓ أَنۡ أُخۡرَجَ وَقَدۡ خَلَتِ ٱلۡقُرُونُ مِن قَبۡلِى وَهُمَا يَسۡتَغِيثَانِ ٱللَّهَ وَيۡلَكَ ءَامِنۡ إِنَّ وَعۡدَ ٱللَّهِ حَقٌّ فَيَقُولُ مَا هَٰذَآ إِلَّآ أَسَٰطِيرُ ٱلۡأَوَّلِينَ
But (there is one) who says to his parents, "Fie on you! Do ye hold out the promise to me that I shall be raised up, even though generations have passed before me (without rising again)?" And they two seek Allah's aid, (and rebuke the son): "Woe to thee! Have faith! for the promise of Allah is true." But he says, "This is nothing but tales of the ancients!"<br/>
As for him who says to his parents (li-waalidayhi: a variant reading has li-waalidihi, 'his parent', denoting the generic noun): 'Fie (read uffin or uffan, as a verbal noun, meaning: '[something] putrid and disgusting') on you both: I am exasperated at both of you. Do you threaten me (a-ta'idaaninee: a variant reading has ata' idaannee) that I shall be raised, from the grave, when already generations, communities, have passed away before me?', and they have not been raised from their graves. And they call on God for succour, that he [their child] repent, saying [to him]: if you do not repent, 'Woe to you (waylaka, that is to say, halaakaka, 'you are ruined!'). Believe!, in resurrection. Surely God's promise is true'. But he says, 'This, belief in resurrection, is nothing but the fables of the ancients', lies of theirs.
