Translation

If thou bring them not a revelation, they say: "Why hast thou not got it together?" Say: "I but follow what is revealed to me from my Lord: this is (nothing but) lights from your Lord, and Guidance, and mercy, for any who have faith."

Tafsir

And when you do not bring them, that is, the people of Mecca, a sign, from among those which they request, they say, 'Why have you not chosen one?', [why have you not] produced one [all by] yourself? Say, to them: 'I follow only that which is revealed to me from my Lord, and it is not for me to bring anything from myself; this, Qur'aan, is insight, proofs, from your Lord, and a guidance and a mercy for a people who believe'.
