قُلْ سِيرُوا۟ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ فَٱنظُرُوا۟ كَيْفَ كَانَ عَٰقِبَةُ ٱلْمُجْرِمِينَ 69 وَلَا تَحْزَنْ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا تَكُن فِى ضَيْقٍ مِّمَّا يَمْكُرُونَ 70 وَيَقُولُونَ مَتَىٰ هَٰذَا ٱلْوَعْدُ إِن كُنتُمْ صَٰدِقِينَ 71

70. And grieve thou not for them, nor be in distress because of what they plot (against thee).
71. And they say: When (will) this promise (be fulfilled), if ye are truthful?

70. Wa laa tahzan ‘alayhim wa laa takun- fii zayqim-mimmaa yamkuruun.

It was explained earlier that the knowledge of Unseen is peculiarity of Allaah Almighty. Therefore, only He deserves to be a Worshipped. Only He is Who told such Unseen matters to His Messengers (peace be upon them) by His Grace, in which it was necessary for the betterment of the mankind to believe.
Allaah Almighty commanded: Say to them that they should believe in such matters, otherwise they will be ruined. That is to say, if they believe that Allaah Almighty surely exists, coming of His Prophets (peace be upon them) in the world is certain, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) is His last Messenger from them, Holy Qur’an is last heavenly Scripture, the Day of Resurrection shall certainly come, the mankind will be brought back to life again after death, his deeds will be reckoned, good people will be sent into the Garden and wrongdoers will be thrown into the Hell.
These are the Unseen matters, belief in which is compulsory for the mankind, otherwise he will be destroyed. Say to those people who are in doubt concerning these matters: The truth of these matters will become manifest upon you if you travel through the land.
It is being commanded to the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him): These people should travel in the land and see; how the end of those who disobeyed the Commandments of Allaah Almighty was. They were ruined in the world as they were frightened by the Prophets (peace be upon them), and like this; the promise concerning the punishment on the Doomsday will surely be fulfilled as the promise of torment in the world was fulfilled. If someone is saved in this world, he will not be saved on the Day of Judgment. You should neither grieve and nor be in distress if they do not admit. You have performed your duty of causing to understand them. Let them mind their business. They say: If you are true then tell us that when the Day of Resurrection will come and when the wicked people will be punishment! Its answer is in the next lesson.
