Translation

His people disputed with him. He said: "(Come) ye to dispute with me, about Allah, when He (Himself) hath guided me? I fear not (the beings) ye associate with Allah: Unless my Lord willeth, (nothing can happen). My Lord comprehendeth in His knowledge all things. Will ye not (yourselves) be admonished?

Tafsir

But his people disputed with him, they argued with him about his religion and threatened him that the idols would strike him with evil if he abandoned them. He said, 'Do you dispute with me (read a-tuhaajjoonnee, or atuhaajoonee where one of the two letters noon is omitted, the noon which grammarians refer to as noon al-raf', 'the noon of [modal] independence', and which Al-Qur'anic reciters refer to as noon al-wiqaaya, 'the noon of preservation'); do you argue with me, concerning, the Oneness of, God when He, exalted be He, has guided me, to it? I have no fear of what you associate with Him, in the way of idols, that they might strike me with some evil, since they have no power to do anything, unless my Lord wills something, harmful to befall me and it does. My Lord encompasses all things through His knowledge; will you not remember, this and believe?
