And when are recited to them Our Verses they say, "Verily we have heard. if we wish surely, we could say like this. Not is this but tales (of) the former (people)."
And when it is said to them, "What has sent down your Lord? They say, "Tales (of) the ancient."
And they say, "Tales (of) the former people which he has had written and they are dictated to him morning and evening."
Certainly, we have been promised this, we and our forefathers from before. Not (is) this except tales (of) the former (people)."
