(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

  وَلَوْ أَنَّ قُرْءَانًا سُيِّرَتْ بِهِ ٱلْجِبَالُ أَوْ قُطِّعَتْ بِهِ ٱلْأَرْضُأَوْ كُلِّمَ بِهِ ٱلْمَوْتَىٰ بَل لِّلَّهِ ٱلْأَمْرُ جَمِيعًا أَفَلَمْ يَا۟يْـَٔسِ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓا۟ أَن لَّوْ يَشَآءُ ٱللَّهُ لَهَدَى ٱلنَّاسَ جَمِيعًا وَلَا يَزَالُ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ تُصِيبُهُم بِمَاصَنَعُوا۟ قَارِعَةٌ أَوْ تَحُلُّ قَرِيبًا مِّن دَارِهِمْ حَتَّىٰ يَأْتِىَ وَعْدُ ٱللَّهِ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يُخْلِفُ ٱلْمِيعَادَ 31

31b.  Do not those who believe know that, had Allah willed, He could have guided all mankind? As for those who disbelieve, disaster ceaseth not to strike them because of what they do, or it dwelleth near their home until the promise of Allah come to pass. Lo! Allah faileth not to keep the tryst.   31b.  ‘Afa-lam  yay-‘asil-laziina  ‘aamanuuu  ‘al-law  yashaaa-‘Ullaahu  lahadan-naasa  jamii-‘aa.  Wa  laa  yazaa-lullaziina  kafaruu  tusii-buhum-  bimaa  Sana-‘uu  qaari-‘atun  ‘aw  tahullu  qariibam-min  daari-him  hattaa  ya’-tiya  wa’-dUllaah.  ‘In-nAllaaha  laa  yukh-liful-mii-‘aad. (Section – 4)      




The Believers should not think that if they do as the infidels say, then may be; they believe. Indeed, if even now; the miracles are shown according to their demand, it is not sure that they will believe. The Believers should regard it as true that Allah Almighty does not desire to bring the entire human beings forcibly on the right path. He has given understanding to the mankind and then He laid open His portents before them. He has sent His last Words of Command by means of His last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). Even then if they do not believe, let them do their work. However they should bear in mind that in the world, they will not be blessed with peace. The disasters will be descended on or around them from time to time, which will hurt and keep them confused. Then on a Day, Promise of Allah Almighty will come to pass and they will reach their recompense fully for evil done. He does not break His tryst.
