These were the very words and utterances used by the pagan Arabs living
in the days of Muhammad to dispute with and pronounce judgement against
Him. They said: "Those who believed in Muhammad dwelt in our midst and
associated with us day and night. When did they die and when were they
raised again to life?" Hearken unto that which was revealed in reply: "If
ever thou dost marvel, marvellous surely is their saying, 'What! When we
have become dust and mouldering bones, shall we be restored in a new
creation?'"(40) And in another passage: "And if thou shouldst say, 'After
death ye shall surely be raised again', the infidels will certainly
exclaim, 'This is naught but palpable sorcery.'"(41) Thus did they mock
and deride Him, for they had read in their Books and heard from their
divines the terms "life" and "death", and understood them as this
elemental life and physical death, and hence when they found not that
which their vain imaginings and their false and wicked minds had
conceived, they hoisted the banners of discord and the standards of
sedition and kindled the flame of war. God, however, quenched it through
the power of His might, as thou seest again in this day with these
infidels and evil-doers.
